Track Name: You Should Try to Feel Insignificant Every Now and Then For a Little Bit
You Should Try to Feel Insignificant
Every Now and Then
For a Little Bit
Track Name: Matador
Caught red-handed, she says that her man is a matador
Blood on the sand but none on the hands of a matador
Taking a chance on a woman whose man is a matador
Blood on the sand but none on the hands of a-

Forbidden fruit always tastes so sweet
She was a lonely bride
If I am Adam, she's my New Year's Eve
A resolution with no leaves turned

[Chorus]

The matador appears by chance
Crushing all hopes of new romance
Wearing a crown of thorns as I left his sight
But the girl remains in mine

Forbidden fruit always tastes so sweet
She was a lonely bride

[Chorus]
Track Name: Delusional Mind
Your delusional mind
Stumbled to my realm
My eyes speak words I will never tell
Bite my tongue and swallow my pride

Delusional Mind
Due to fear inside

Seeing eye to eye
But I'm swearing blind
Lost in thoughts you will never find
Your delusional mind is infecting mine

Can't you see I love her?
Won't you see it's me?
Track Name: In Limbo
I never get anything done
I could change but I know I won't
Cause I said I'll see you tomorrow
And the next day, and the next day

What if it's not me it's them that's wrong?
Cause the bitter taste of wasted time is dead and gone
I decide to bite my tongue
Instead of theirs, instead of theirs

But life will never be boring
As long as I'm with you
Whether we're walking in limbo
Or through the valleys of Neptune

I'm lying in the bath with all the lights dimmed low
The water was warm when you were here one week ago
I thought I saw you on the news but you were sitting on a bridge in Budapest
When you return we'll do what you, you want
Track Name: On the Cusp
He's on the cusp of breaking down but not up
Cause she knows what to say when his tongue's stuck
He loves the way she looks at that patterned ring
That she got when she went Far East

That's when he asks what she's thinking
And every time she tells him

Things will never change, they will always stay the same
That's what she said
We will never be apart. I cross my little heart
That's what she said

He doesn't feel time when he falls asleep
Growing old feels so discreet
But one night he's wide awake at 3am
And so is she

She's caught catching glimpses of her ring finger
Then he asks what's on her mind
The cellar door, cellar door never shuts
He laughs and she confides

Things will never change, they will always stay the same
That's what she said
We will never be apart, I cross my little heart
And he believed her

At a bus stop, late-July
A stranger looks her dead in the eye
He greets her with a kiss
Sees our protagonist and says "Who's this?"

He sees a patterned ring
On this new lad's hand
He says she's the one
They fell in love in Japan

Things will never change, they will always stay the same
That's what she said
We will never be apart, I cross my little heart
That's what she said

Things will always change, they will never stay the same
That's what he said
We will always be apart, I cross my bleeding heart
That's what he said
Track Name: Asleep at the Circus
Your eyes are wandering
Turn mine from blue to green
What do you want to see?
Are you looking for love in places hard to reach?

Your style's subdued and discreet
Had me on the edge of my seat
Like an acrobat upon the beam,
soon you'll be bored of the circus scene

She was the most close
Closer than most
Closer than most to me for so long

Your eyes were wandering
Turned mine from blue to green
But I know what you wanted to see
Weaved in the seems
There's a rip inbetween

No sign of interest
She's yawning at all my attempts to impress
She said it feels like
Being asleep at the circus

She was the most close
Closer than most

(Listen) to yourself for an hour
(Each day) you grow a little more sour
(She was) never meant to be
Closer than most to me for so long

Your eyes are wandering
Turn mine from blue to green
Your eyes were wandering
But my eyes are opening

No sign of interest
She's yawning at all my attempts to impress
She said it feels like
Being asleep at the-
Track Name: Still Around
You present no appeal to me
I don't know why you're still around
You present to me no appeal
I wonder why I still keep you around

I don't mind the limelight
If she knows only red

(Just about, still around)
I can't stand her company
(Living on hallow ground)
She comes over just to get stoned
(Just about, still around)
She doesn't leave when her nose bleeds
(Living on hallow ground)
But it's better than being alone

[Chorus]

I don't mind the limelight
If she comes at the right time
(Oh, but) I don't mind the limelight
If she knows only red

(Just about, still around)
We're in my room again
(Living on hallow ground)
Always low on conversation
(Just about, still around)
She brought the cocaine and ketamine
(Living on hallow ground)
To do all the talking

I don't mind the limelight
If she knows only red

[Chorus]

You present to me no appeal
And I don't know I still keep you around with me
Track Name: He's a Sham
He wants to be one in a hundred but
He's already ninety-nine
His girlfriend wears Pennies Pink Floyd t-shirts
Doesn't like the band just likes the design

He cycles a push-bike
Says he watched a man die
Drinks cans by the canal
Repeated fifth year twice

He's a sham
Poor excuse for a man

Don't let him use your phone
Don't invite him to your home
He'll rob the batteries
From your TV remotes

He's a sham
Poor excuse for a man
Track Name: Bad Listener
Doctor, doctor, I'm so selfish
Is there medication I can take for being a prick?
My girlfriend and I had a fight then I went to bed
I spent all night thinking of all the things I should have said

I say yep yep yep yep
But I'm not listening at all
I say yep yep yep yep
But I don't care I'm sorry

I'm a long time caller, first time listener
I don't know why she always says I never listen to her
Doctor, doctor can you help me?
I keep repeating, keep repeating myself constantly


I say yep yep yep yep
But I'm not listening at all
I say yep yep yep yep
But I don't care I'm sorry
I say I understand
But I haven't a clue what the subject at hand is
I say yep yep yep
But I know you do it to me too

Sorry but I can't stop being such an arsehole
It was unintentional, it was unintentional
