Track Name: Mostly Water
Mostly Water

Don’t get
Jaded yet
We have only started
Your laugh is cut in half
You stopped playing the clown
Maybe it was me who was the one that should not have stuck around

Chorus
You and I are made up of mostly water
We oughta float despite skin and bone
You and I are made up of mostly water
But you can’t keep your head above the waves
Carrying a heart of stone.

Your skin’s iced
Jesus Christ
Why are you near freezing?
You hide you inside
Everything used to be right
But now you are afraid of going out on your own into the night
Chorus

Girl your all at sea
Carrying a heart of stone.
Chorus

Track Name: The Little Man
The Little Man

I don’t walk or get around
I don’t see
Coz I don’t get around
Go hide on university’s higher ground
So I can look down
On a little man
Only do so much
Only hope so much
I’m losing my mind but a let it slip by

Forget about all my dreams
Head back home
Home where I belong
There’s no point sacrificing my self to the higher mind
If I end up blind
To the little man
Only do so much
Only hope so much
I’m losing my mind but a let it slip by

You think that everything see is all right
It’s not all right.
All right.

Track Name: I've Come To Love You
I’ve Come To Love You.

You’ve been walking into doors.
You’ve been holding out your hand.
Ask me for my help
I’ll give you all I got
I give it all away, give it all way, give it all away.

I’ve come to love you like I’ve never loved ever before
My babe
(I need you to be brave)
I’ve come to love you like I’ve never loved ever before
My babe
(I need you to be brave)

You’ve been walking into doors
And I’ve been hitting it too hard
Building up my nerve
To tell you how I feel
I needed to be brave, needed to be brave, needed to be brave.

Chorus repeat

So when you come again
I’ll show you how I feel.
I gave it all away, gave it all away, gave it all away.

Chorus repeat

Track Name: Suffrajettes
Suffragettes are Venus

She said, She said it. I’ll get my revenge. I never like you or your bitchy friends.
I’m gonna love it to leave you alone. Now you get the mailbox on my mobile phone
I got to get to the supermarket to get all the cardboard boxes
Get all my shit put of your house
Get to the supermarket to get all the cardboard boxes.
Get all my shit out.

She was into the stars
I always thought she was way out there
She said all men are Mars.
All suffragettes are Venus. Suffragettes are Venus
Suffragettes are Venus.

Had it. I lost. I’m falling behind. I’ll never know what goes on in your mind?
Wherever I am you can’t stand the smell but I’m the one who’s leaving you to rot in hell.
You said I’m so pathetic. My love is anaesthetic.
I don’t feel anything anymore.
She said I’m so pathetic. My love is anaesthetic.
I don’t feel anything.
Chorus repeat

Good things come to an end. Yes they do.
But bad things end much faster. Go and ask her.
First Verse and Chorus repeat
I’ll love another suffragette.

Track Name: Happy New Year
Happy New Year.

She gets back a week after Christmas
And I’ll be waiting there for her when the plane gets down.
Oh I want her to need me but I’m living in fear
If I’m on my own on the day at the end then it’s clear
No Happy New Year. No Happy New Year.

She wants a ring I give her long distance.
A tiny thread around the world that marries us.
While I melt in a heatwave she’s been slipping through snow
The sun sets on her and it rises on me lying here
No Happy New Year. No Happy New Year.

No Regrets Go on forget me
All I’ve left is the black dog of memory

She came back the week after Christmas
Tears across her English tan, she’d cried all the way
She said “Thank you for waiting.” I said “I never believed”
“That I’d be the one that would drag you from London to here.”
To make a Happy New Year
A Happy New Year. A Happy New Year.

Track Name: Vampires Kiss
Vampire’s Kiss

Cursing at the sun with a vampire’s kiss coz your twelve hours away.
I’m cursing at the job that I do coz playing this guitar don’t pay.
Maybe I’ll buy a block of land and chop down all the trees.
Maybe I’ll buy a one way ticket and piss off overseas

I need the night time.
Cool of the night time
Roll out the night time
Coz I’m gonna see you there.

Phone is ringing with a streetlight on, a good friend will be found
Flicking through the names in my little red book I get what I need back downtown
When I face the jury I’ll just plead loneliness
Coz I’m going mad without your love, I need nothing lees

Chorus repeat

Cursing at the sun with a vampire’s kiss coz your twelve hours away.
Cursing at this isolation gonna make it the end of the day

Chorus repeat.

Lyrics by Elliott Weston © 2002
Track Name: Inside Out About You
Inside Out About You

Plate for a pillow picking up the damage at a restaurant.
Matinee milkbar park the car don’t next we’ll do anything you want.
Another double gig gotta set it up sometime somewhere else.
Been travelling through a different town all the same
Now I’m by myself.

Coz light years would pass
And that won’t change
The way I feel without you
I’m inside out about you
Inside out

Count all the zeros Woody Allen coming at one o’clock
Take you away and add it up
Pretty close to nothing is what I’ve really got.

Chorus repeat

Put life on hold.
Felt like I don’t know.
Felt you drifting above.
Surrounded by your love.
Don’t wanna leave you. Don’t wanna leave you. Don’t wanna leave you

Chorus repeat.
