Track Name: Reality Killed The Dream
You look through at his window
Gaze out at the loss
Your blood boils when you see him kneeling
At the foot of the cross

You wanna show him your pistol
And steal his family jewels
Take a trip through an awful rainbow
And end up where you started down here on the floor
You should've thrown it up before

You're having sex on Sundays
You never get to come
4 CDs and a poster free
A boxed set of rebellion

If you think of anything
You think your life must mean something
Chit-chat daytime lunacy
You can't be disappointed, reality killed the dream

His veins are full of money
It's got nothing to do
With your wide behind or your heart or your mind
Cos girls grow older faster than boys do
Don't they?

He picked you like a flower
Stuck you in this vase
Now you wish he'd left you in that lonely wasteland
Where your roots still are

If you think of anything
You think your life must mean something
Chit-chat daytime lunacy
You can't be disappointed, reality killed you
If you think of anything
You think your life must mean something
Chit-chat daytime lunacy
You can't be disappointed, reality killed the dream

You share a bed with a bald man

Passion can't you see
Will never get round your sanity
Passion can't you see
Will never get through your vanity
Passion can't you see
Will never get round reality
Passion can't you see
Will never get to you
Tough titty
Track Name: I Threw The Bathwater Out
Woke up drunk this morning
Saw the sun rise in the West
I changed this morning
I put my clothes on backwards

Woke the dead this morning
Fell off the toilet
Breathed the dusk this morning
I somehow just ignored it

I threw the bathwater out
I threw the bathwater out
With the baby
My baby

Collapsed this morning
The wood surrounded me
On my back this morning
The only place that I could look was up

I threw the bathwater out
I threw the bathwater out
With the baby
My baby

I chased the biggest bird of prey
It flew in such a perspicacious way
A sceptical arrangement on my face
A desultory smile across my race

The baby...
What about the baby?
I'm sure I'll forget my baby
I can't remember the way she feels
I can't remember the way she melts
I can't remember the way she smells

Could you be my new baby?
Track Name: Nightmares
Nightmares crawl about
Wake up crying out
Gasping I cannot breathe
Nightmares, they wither me

I wonder downstairs make the water cry
I ripple and writhe as the night ticks by
But the bats and the cats on the window sill
They won't sit still, they won't sit still
I see the darkness hanging on my wall

Weep weep, I can't decide
Shall I go to sleep tonight?
I could read inside my room
Nursing the dying moon

I wonder downstairs make the water cry
I ripple and writhe as the night ticks by
But the bats and the cats on the window sill
They won't sit still, they won't sit still
I see the darkness everywhere I go

Oh what petty God of pain
Put these thoughts inside my brain?
A child's mind of misery
Hunkers down to sleep in me
Oh what petty God of pain
Put these thoughts inside my brain?
A child's mind in misery
Terror washes over me
