Track Name: Marie Hate Song
She thinks I've written about her....
Track Name: Gulltown
Say goodbye to the old public hall
and the crazy golf animals
needed a lick of paint years ago
Say goodbye, even though...

So long the bench
and say "Hello!" to the girls in the arcade
"Hello!"
This is my favourite game
Let's get some... "Vinegar; open."

I'm going to the pier
It's all boarded up and no one's there
Let's throw pebbles into the sea
and just stare....
and then get some: vinegar; open.

Say goodbye, but slowly
Say goobye to the chip stand guy on the promenade
to the club, to the cinema
to the shipyard shack,
to the station platform way out back
Say goodbye... say goodbye to it all
even though... even though
we've nowhere else to go.

So long the bench
and say "Hello!" to the girls in the arcade
"Hello!"
This was my favourite game
Let's get some... "Vinegar; open."
Track Name: SMAKK22
And when the police get you
they beat you black and blue
but my legend still be true
my name: SMAKK22

We ride the trains in vain
We are stealing out at night
and we shall write our names
those names, they shine so bright

And we were wired for science
and kingly
this town, it wears our names
and rightly!
Colours to dazzle - done!
Fame to inspire - done!
Walk the tracks: death-dicing
nine lives for a cool cat

And when the gangs get you
they beat you black and blue
but my legend still be true
my name: SMAKK22

I was wired for science
and kingly
this town it wears my name
believe me!
And me, I see the trains through black eyes
And she forgives when I'm not there
when I am there
when they call to bail be home.

They beat you black and blue
and you may not always rule
but my legend still be true
my name? SMAKK22.
Track Name: Virtual Pier
VIRTUAL PIER

I'm standing on the virtual pier
and there's nobody else here

I'm going down to the solemn sea
and there's nobody with me

I'm going down to the sympathy sands
and no one holds my hand

I'm standing on the virtual pier
and there's nobody else here
