Track Name: My Mother Wouldn't Approve
I don't really like people, but I have to speak to them.
I don't really like talking much and I don't feel like a man.
I wish I could do my work but I just can't see it through.
I just wanna spend my time getting drunk and being with you.
I can't wait.
Track Name: Palaeontology (Happy Birthday David Schwimmer)
I wish I could know what you think, each time you stay.
I never know what to say,
Wishing you well, palaeontology.

I thought that you knew,
I thought I told you.

I thought,
Can't stop thinking about it now.
I heard,
Heard your voice somehow.

I never know what to say,
Wishing you well, palaeontology.

I thought that you knew,
I thought I told you.
Track Name: Hold the Door
I know that I'm selfish,
And I hate it.
I know that I'm worthless,
There's no need to say it.
But I don't think that I can leave here without you.
And I don't think that I can dream as high as you do.

But I think I know you better,
Better than you know yourself.

I know that I'm selfish,
And I hate it.
I know that I'm worthless,
There's no need to say it.
But I don't think that I can leave here without you.
And I don't think that I can dream as high as you do.

But I think I know you better,
Better than you know yourself.

But I think I know you better,
Better than you know yourself.
I know you.

Hold the door.
I think I know you better,
Better than you know yourself.
Track Name: Wait for Me
Walking,
Crawling,
Behind the shadow of your silhouette.
Just leave me,
Believe me,
I don't know why,

You won't wait for me.
Wait for me.

Walking,
Crawling,
Behind the shadow of your silhouette.
Just leave me,
Believe me,
I don't know why,

You won't wait for me.
Wait for me.
Track Name: Baby Teeth
I can't speak,
Cos I'm choking on words and broken teeth,
Whatever that means.
I lie awake all day,
Wondering about things and what to say.
Have time for me, being me.

Last night I had a dream that all my teeth fell out of my mouth,
Onto the ground.
Last night I had a dream that all my teeth fell out of my mouth,
Couldn't make a sound.

I can't sleep,
And it's been like this now for three whole weeks,
Whatever that means.
I lie awake all day,
Wondering about words and what to say.
Have time for me, being me.

Last night I had a dream that all my teeth fell out of my mouth,
Onto the ground.
Last night I had a dream that all my teeth fell out of my mouth,
Couldn't make a sound.

I wish I could talk to you,
I wish I could sleep the night through.
Track Name: Cheesy Chips
Three years since I've been home,
I don't know what's going on.
Calm down, there's no need to fear,
It's been three years since I've been here.
Walking down the same old street,
Cobblestones and worn out feet.
Calm down, there's no need to fear,
It's been three years since I've been here.

In the street, we lay together.
We're mad now, we hate each other.
Chips and cheese, we eat together.
And I realise now, it's not forever.

This is not forever,
Cos it's now or never.
