lyrics

Sure as underpants are expensive
All of my ancestors had children
Nobody plays board games anymore
We’ve a silent understanding
I’m in an unspoken league
With my acne-scarred brothers and sisters
And if this vessel dips far beneath the waves
They know they are the ones that I would reach out and save

Did my dad hold my hand ‘round town too long?
Everyone tells me I’m a sensitive soul.
Beryl, hits me with “that’s form of egotism”
This barbs like a truth although I tell her “it isn’t”

Roacutane kids
“Why don’t you wash?”
Staining the guest sheets
With legions and puss
Side-effects fill
Three sheets of A4
Consultant’s pose photos
Compounding it all
A chemical rebalancing
Dried out like sultanas
With awkward hunches
90s centre partings
Praise dermatology
There’s blood in the laundry
“You’re frigid if your eyebrows
Are far too apart”

Did I sleep with soft toy bears for too long?
I’m sick of being told I’m a sensitive soul
Now I rarely shout, I just storm out the house
When conflict approaches I’m the reverse tortoise

You’re a sensitive soul

If Jimmy Nail can be handsome
In contraband shoes
I’m sure me and my shandals can shake off these blues
