Lyrics

Moulting

Written By: Eagulls

Pins and Needles
Finger feel like there twigs
Old Floral Wallpaper is dripping off
and falling to bits
Feels like i've super glued nub ends in my chest
I'll hoard things to
Have nothing left

Its like i'm moulting
I'm moulting
I'm moulting
I'm moulting
Away
It's as if everything I've kept just goes and seems to fall off,
and Moult away.

Walls are melting
Toes are covered in shit
Cant find my light switch
And my candles at the end of its wick
Feels like I'm swimming in an ocean of phlegm
Why Hoard things to have Nothing Left?

Its like i'm moulting
I'm moulting
I'm moulting
I'm moulting
Away
It's as if everything I've kept just goes and seems to fall off,
and Moult away.

Its gone Away
Its gone Away
Its gone Away
Its gone Away

I'm moulting
I'm moulting
I'm moulting
Away
It's as if everything I've kept just goes and seems to fall off,
and Moult away.

Feels like i'm moulting
I'm moulting
I'm moulting
I'm moulting
Away
It's as if everything I've kept just goes and seems to fall off,
and Moult away.

Coffin

Written By: Eagulls

I don't want no cushioned warmth
I'll facedown coffin on your carpet
I don't need no walls at all I'll make my own four walls
And before you go to sleep
Be sure Im leaving in the morning
And this is not no normal sleep
I'm falling where I fall

With eyes shut I've found my place
I'll Fall there
And even if I never wake I'll fall there

I don't want no cushioned warmth
I'll facedown coffin on your carpet
I don't need no walls at all I'll make my own four walls
And at night when your asleep
I'm still here rotting on your carpet
Realise it's my last sleep I'm falling where I fall

With eyes shut I've found my place
I'll Fall there
And even if I never wake I'll fall there

I'm falling where I fall
I'm falling where I fall
I'm falling where I fall
I'll never wake no more

With eyes shut I've found my place
I'll Fall there
And even if I never wake I'll fall there
With eyes shut I've found my place
I'll Fall there
And even if I never wake I'll fall there

I didn't want your cushioned warmth
I've faced down coffined on your carpet
I didn't need your walls at all I've made my own four walls
In the morning you'll be half asleep
You'll find me sinking in your carpet
You'll realise I've slept so deep, I'll never wake no more

I'm falling where I fall
I'm falling where I fall
I'll never wake no more
Where I fall

Council Flat Blues

Written By: Eagulls

2 fag mix
Gauzes lying on the floor
And the toddlers kept on crying
Someone's knocking at the walls
It's the acid causing laughter
But the buyers causing stress
The council flat blues
Dog is biting babys neck

Who put them spots on the dead dalmation?
And who ended it's life?
I'd love to ask someone but someones not there
This so called god we've got to talk to doesn't listen doesn't care

Who put the shoe by the side of the motorway
And where the fuck is the right?
Jigsaw puzzle/Crossword style game of life
It's 3 across 6 down but somethings not right

Were left to guess…

2 fag mix gauzes lying on the floor
And the toddlers kept on crying
Someones knocking at the walls
It's acid causing laughter
But the buyers causing stress
The Council flat blues
Dog is biting babys neck

Bread bag lungy bong, council flat blues,
We don't know what were trying and we don't know what to do.
Bread bag lungy bong, council flat blues,
With cotton mouth tongues, I guess we'll guest the news.

Were left to guess
Guess!
