Track Name: Less Than Three
all my sex takes place without a face
and alternates between lower and upper case
mis-spelled between asterisks and dashes
emoting sweats to scenario clashes
all the keys make less than three

i love my sex, it takes place without a face
the little skills that quicken the pace
emoting sweats, emoting sweats
all the keys make less than three

we sit ageless with stumps we tap, tap, tap
a bodyless 21st century mishap
in spaceless rooms we pander sexless
in thinking less the self's repossessed
all the keys make less than three

we sit ageless with stumps we tap, tap, tap
bodyless 21st century mishap
emoting sweats, emoting sweats
all the keys make less than three
Track Name: In The Graveyards
in the graveyards are families and friends
staying for a while but eager to move on
resting in vertical tombs that light up, light up at christmas
they flicker in while people come and go
through guilt mainly, through guilt mainly

and we're tribal in our vandalism
our epitaphs in graffiti art

it scratches the cheeks and from the top it falls down
our bald heads first we exit the womb
in the graveyards are families and friends
every curtain drawn, every curtain drawn

and we're tribal in our vandalism
our epitaphs in graffiti art

where we once looked out now concrete stares
Track Name: Bulimia Sisters
we compare knees under gaps in bathroom stalls
a cubicle to box in our shared control
i got a manicure just for you
we rely on each other: a sister or brother

we keep covering, keep on covering
keep covering, keep recovering
we keep covering, keep on covering
keep recovering

i must apologise and that's okay if you apologise
we share your secrets, we sell your secrets
we buy your secrets...
i got a manicure just for you
we rely on each other: a sister, a brother


we keep covering, keep on covering
keep covering, keep recovering
we keep covering, keep on covering
keep recovering

i wash, you put away - the cleanliness of every day
Track Name: You Can Do Athletics, btw
you can do athletics
i've seen the doctor and the doctor's seen me
i'm fit and i'm healthy but inadequate with regards to athletic ability
"we can all be similar, personal achievement becomes communal
we'll share a trophy and merit to us all!
we can upgrade you, we will upgrade you
you can do athletics too!"
you can do athletics
he said nobody need be the underdog anymore
"son, this is the future, all that's come before is a dinosaur."
he said i can do athletics, my kids can do athletics
and that our bodies are no restriction
he said this with conviction
"we can upgrade you, we will upgrade you
you can do athletics too."
you can do athletics
a race becomes a march when we're together at the finish line
Track Name: Fear Of Words
i've got a fear, it's words i fear
words can be worse than they appear
a word's a bullet piercing me, text vitriol potentially
i am so scared i'm unprepared
to face the language i have heard
i take offence, context is weaning
in spite of the actual meaning

i've got a fear, it's words i fear
words that i read, words that i hear
i'm scared to lose, i'm scared to win
words are a shall and what's within?
must not offend, must not insult, disfiguring the end result
i make words iconography - the word 'sex' is pornography
abcdefg - wherein lies the pornography

i've got a fear of words!
abcdefg - wherein lies the pornography
abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
Track Name: Pylons & Other Modern Art
we're pointing upwards at all time
we build up and in circles - the architecture of the pupils
it's hard to read between the lines
they're second-hand and made of wood
i understand that it's understood
rationale will let you down

a lamp-post towers overhead
an artificial form of light that we can reach with added height
i think we're heading underground
because rationale has let me down
because rationale has let me down
rationale will let you down
Track Name: Networking
networking everywhere
not working anywhere
networking
this route won't seem suspicious
operated by machinery we all get very lazy
i despise the scenery
this route won't raise suspicions
the jobs are simply tasks
we all get very lazy
control that circuits mask
networking everywhere
not working anywhere
Track Name: This Is Vanity
vanity constructs me, vanity still haunts me
am i still permanently seen as the other in between?
yeah - this is vanity
Track Name: Duplicates
left-handed scissors cut paper-chain authentics
our hands-in-hand i look at my barcode
i mumble that the streets are all off-road
i am unique to sell unique
we edit -> undo
this is not a duplicate

the price is in the loss of quality
and every copy is a little worse
the sound skips to mono
the edges merge with the background
we edit -> undo
this is not a duplicate

this is not a duplicate
this is just a duplicate
Track Name: Drawing Anarchy Signs On Your Pencil Case Is Redundant
Drawing anarchy signs on your pencil case is stupid
Sorry, I take it back - it's just redundant
Track Name: CYT#1
i like to do something special with my saturday night
they have renovated the cumbernauld town centre
but only half of it

modern boys and modern girls

the majority of my time is spent inside
with the modern boys and the modern girls
or gathered round a bus stop
maybe i'll head up towards b&q
to diy myself a way to leave you

modern boys and modern girls
i like to do something special with my saturday night
