Track Name: Politics
In the corners of a greasy spoon
Or in a train station waiting room
We never talk politics
We just sit there and check the phone
We worry that we’re missing
The things that really matter to us
So I try and make contact
But you never play footsie

I want to feel a closeness
And in your eyes I know there’s something you miss
And I really like your outfit
But it’s just too early to say
We’ll never talk politics
We’ll just hold hands by the TV
And I start getting serious
I’ll dream of all the things we won’t do
And it hinges on an action
But we don’t dare to make the wrong move

You say I don’t say enough
but I worry that I say too much

I listen to my instinct
But I feel something holding me back
I’m not some weirdo
I just want to get to know what you’re like
It’s the 21st century
Does there have to be the questions?
And I feel it should be easy
But I see you’re just as fucked up as me

You say I don’t say enough
but I worry that I say too much
Track Name: seconds
Let’s pretend it’s the 80s, let worry slip away
We’ll get lost in all the future plans
That the school wanted us to dream about
But let’s pretend we’re rock stars planning our escape
7.30 on a Thursday night
We’ll be under the balloons and lights...just wait

How’d we even get here?
I say, Just look at me, 1-2-3, where’ve I been?
If you mention time...Then I really don’t know what it means
Looking back at photos..
I say, just look at me, 1-2-3, who’ve I been?
And It’s getting late so I really gotta go and find 'me'

We could be immortalised and leave a legacy
But we focus on the TV screen
And we let the evenings pass us by
There’s a new reality and we really don’t belong
And the mirror only lets us down
It’s revealing all we hoped was wrong

(chorus)

I really gotta go
I really gotta go and find me
I really gotta go and find myself

(The sky has turned from blue to grey)
Track Name: Energy Drinks
Opening your eyes
(you want a new perspective)
You need a taste of something
(there must be something better)
Getting out of bed
(another day of nothing)
You need to stop the shaking
(nothing’s not the answer)

Waiting for the sign - the answers on the pavement
Never catch an eye you know there’s always danger
Looking for a taste the world has lost its flavour
You’re holding on for comfort

Taking in the drink
(you’re savouring the nectar
Get a new confidence
(there’s nobody to touch you)
Making you seem alert
(everything is perfect)
Making you so alive
(everybody notices)

Doing all the things you never could imagine
Breaking all the rules – you’re like a new person
Finding out the things you thought were uncertain
You’re holding on for comfort

You cannot function with their lies
Just trying to make it through
This modern world that takes your energy
You will not fit in with their mind
Just trying to make it through
This modern world that takes your energy

You’ve got a new addiction
New ways to calm your mind
No longer need to listen
No one to waste your time

(chorus)

Where’s your energy?

Real life wastes your energy
Real life wastes your energy
Just trying to make it through
This modern world that takes your energy
Track Name: Mrs. Peacock
In a place you don’t expect
She will be right at your service
It’s a marital regret
But she understands your purpose
She smells your weakness as you let her in
You try to know her but you won’t get in

She will always be discreet
Understands a reputation
She will sweep you off your feet
It’s a part of her vocation
She knows your history, you let her in
You try to know her but you won’t get in

Spending hours in the dining room
Smell the flowers in the drawing room
You’re tied up and it isn’t what you asked for
A new life in the living room
You want to end it in the bedroom
Time’s up and she isn’t what you asked for.

You are just another part
In her 9-5 collection
She will never show her heart
Plays her role with such perfection
She shows a smile and you let her in
You try to know her but you won’t get in

(chorus)

You never planned it, now she’s taking advantage
And this new behaviour...they never expect
She’s like a model but she’s changing your morals
And this new behaviour...they never expect

You’re a peacock in everything but beauty
Track Name: Round & Round
Watching films from my childhood...they make me nervous
Watching girls at the cocktail bar...they make me nervous
I never thought I had a crisis until you told me the truth
And all the things I believed because nobody ever told me the truth
I never thought it was a crisis but there was nothing to do
And I never moved on because I worried there was nothing to do

Live a life on non-communication
When I open up you never listen
Just another day going round and round

Who is right who is wrong when nobody wants to tell me the truth
I find it so hard to exist cause nobody ever told me the truth
I never thought it was a crisis but you gave me the proof
And when I took a step backwards I saw that I was nothing to you


Live a life on non-communication
When I open up you never listen
Just another day going round and round

Conversations on the phone...they make me nervous
reading things between your lines... they make me nervous
