Track Name: Sunday Morning
I'm watching adults in a wading pool
On a deck on the Bund, and it's covered in sand
And these white pricks they call it a beach party
Whilst they vaguely listen to Conrank DJ
Sp I escape to a near empty bar at the Cool Docks
And I listen to these two guys who've been in China for 6 years
And still can't speak a word of Chinese and they're comforting each other
That those four tones are just impossible
And no one here believes in good will
And taxi drivers don't understand them when they speak in perfect Chinese and their girlfriend is different cos she studied overseas
And cafe culture has swallowed everyone that I've ever known
Seen so many friends sucked under the brain dead spell
With every Sunday morning is the same as the last
Meeting in cafes near the park so they can talk about good coffee
and where they can get good coffee
and who they last had good coffee with
and how bad they need a good coffee
and which shit box cuntrag place on Yongkang Lu does the best shit coffees for 37RMB whilst their French friend sits adjacent to them, bouncing a newborn on their knee
and I'm not using my degree.
I'm not doing anything with my four years at Uni
I'm not doing shit for anyone else ever again

Last night I fucked a farmers son
He pushed right up inside me so that I could feel him cum
and you don't get that in clinics and wait rooms
Having country boy seed fill up your city womb

And we're both running from our HECS debts and every Flora Hill student that we ever met and anyone who is exhausting to be around, especially if they're from our hometown.
Track Name: Smashing Pumpkins
我朋友的爸爸刚刚世了
Track Name: Blue Dress
And I load it upstairs, just to load it downstairs
and I load it in to a windowless room for 60RMB an hour
So I can feel some power, so I can try some ideas
So I can put words over beats that will be forgotten by the end of the year.

And I untangle leads, yell until my throat bleeds
Breathe in the mould and replace broken strings
That I bought the day before and carried home in the storm
Put in the guitar case with pliers and band aids

And we practice the set, try to pick our best songs
Check what time we’re expected there and what time we’re on
Tangle the leads again and load it upstairs
Drag it home over worn out bones just to get it on stage

But the girl in the blue dress, keeps talking through my set
And the louder I go, well the louder she gets
And I stare at my frets, try to put one or two together that could help me, help me, help me to connect
But no matter who I am or where I’m going or what I’ve seen I guess I’ll never impress, the girl with the blue dress.

They said sound check was at 6, but I get there at 5
and why the fuck is the first band still sound checking at a quarter to 9?
Watch them play the same beats and try to find time to eat
But they promise they’ll be done soon as I slump in my seat

Sitting in a shadowed corner when the organiser said
Let’s wait for more bodies, let’s wait for more heads
Let’s wait, let’s wait, let’s wait for more crowd
Walk on stage and hope our songs make our parents proud


But the girl in the blue dress, keeps talking through my set
And the louder I go, well the louder she gets
And I stare at my frets, try to put one or two together that could help me, help me, help me to connect
But no matter who I am or where I’m going or what I’ve seen I guess I’ll never impress, the girl with the blue dress.
Track Name: Full Label Love
And I walked it through your house
There’s nothing quite like that
A small beating of my heart
And your Dad’s near heart attack

And I can labour it for hours
I can labour it for days
I can labour it for weeks or months or decades
But it doesn’t matter if it never sees the light of day.

Look how fucking far we come

And I think the hardest part isn’t missing you at all
It’s knowing that you don’t miss me
And I want to know if you’re doing ok
But I want you to know that I’m doing better

And I think the hardest part isn’t missing you at all
It’s knowing that you don’t miss me
And I want to know if you’re doing ok
But I want you to know that I’m doing better
Track Name: Nothing But No Hope
I've got nothing but no hope
Track Name: We're Going Out With A Dull Thud
And we’re going out with a dull thud
And we’re going out with a whimper
Anyone who had of done this could have done it better
And we’re going out with a dull thud
And we’re going out with a whimper
Anyone who had of done this could have done it better
Couldn’t have done it better
Could have done it better
Couldn’t have done it better
