Lyrics

Sunny Drive

Written By: Rupert Parry

I went on a sunny drive, we drove all afternoon.
I went on my sunny drive to spend some time with you.
Saw a toll collector, said we couldn’t cross his bridge.
I pulled out my tommy gun to be the end of him.

Noise, noise, noise, noise.

Drowned myself in lager,
Drank myself some wine,
Lunching with your parents is always a good time.
I was getting rowdy, mother tried to hide.
I pulled out my tommy gun, shot her till she died.

Noise, noise, noise, noise.

Nothing Happened

Written By: Rupert Parry

Said I’d wait forever
Stayed away all weekend though.
Called her up later, and...

Nothing really happened,
Nothing ever does.
Nothing really happened,
Nothing really...

Caught a bus with “Jesus”
Called again on advice
Waited there an hour or more, and...

Nothing really happened,
Nothing ever does.
Nothing really happened,
Nothing really...

I Like It (When My Mother Cries)

Written By: Rupert Parry

Look ahead,
The rain, it follows you
I see I’ll be following too.
Hung by a thread,
So happy I’ve got so much left to do.
Save me, maybe I can save you.

New trends,
I’ve always been left so far behind.
You talk to me, I sadly say never mind.

I Love You

Written By: Rupert Parry

I’m always searching for this sorrow,
Something my heart tells me is true,
So here it goes.
You’re out there, I know,
I haven’t met you.
I love you, I do.
I’d die for you, I do.
My hand it shakes, feel I’ve betrayed you.
From all the love not made with you.
So here it goes.
I know that you know I’m out here.
I need you, I do.
You’ll hurt me, you do.
I hate you, I do.
I’d die for you, I do.

New Suit

Written By: Rupert Parry

It’s not too bad if you work in the city,
Got a cute friend, boy she’s oh so pretty.

Shit walks in, shit walks in,
Throw it in there with me.

I know it’s all about presentation,
It’s not so hard to work in a fast food nation.

Shit walks in, shit walks in,
Throw it in there with me.

Cheap Stuff

Written By: Rupert Parry

Another messy scene,
Another road to clean,
And when enough is enough,
It’s just another lane to drive.

Ties are just for pretend,
Just like fucking friends.
Getting up is hard enough,
Staying in bed is just as tough.

Love in a paper bag,
You always knew it was cheap.
It was enough to have,
but not enough to keep.

False Hollywood Narcotics

Written By: Rupert Parry

Come on baby, you know that you want to.
Pretty lady, you know what I want to.
Get a grip and answer when I ask you,
Come to save me, you know that you’d like to.

Be here, be heard, be hurt.

Don’t talk I don’t want no recognition,
You know how it is don’t arouse no suspicion.
Get a grip and answer when I ask you,
Come to save me, you know that you’d like to.

Be here, be heard, be hurt.

Lust

Written By: Rupert Parry

Twenty-two or ninety-one,
you want someone
Whether it’s a thirst or just for fun,
Or just to get it done.

I got lust, I got lust.

My head points down as I hit the floor,
Can’t do this alone anymore,
Take me closer a little more and say

I got lust, I got lust.

The Rainbow Song

Written By: Rupert Parry

Colours are all melting,
To a cocktail in my head.
My body’s constantly bending,
when it should be snapping instead.

It’s a meltdown.

Feelings are colliding,
Now I don’t know what to do.
Purple, green and rainbow,
Every colour points to you.

It’s a meltdown.

Dodge City Showdown

Written By: Rupert Parry

I want to disappear, in the atmosphere, on my own.
Don’t want to make no plans, stain someone else’s hands for a bone.
You’ve seen what they do, from a different view, far away.
There’s no decisions now, ain’t no where and how, it’s today.

Sensations are spinning me, this is a killing spree, come what may.
Bloodbath, well I hope it is, I don’t want to live anyway.

It’s calling me, a bullet has forced me free
Like a leaf from a tree, I fall away for all to see.
