Track Name: You Are A Cathedral
You, you are a cathedral
Always used to disappointment
But always disappointed

But each time seems worse than the last
They moved the clock to another place
But I wasn't a crime until this country came along
I've changed since I was dead
I've changed since I was

I am a bridge when I'd rather be
Turning to see the word exit scrawled into your cheeks
But I, I'm built to house nothing in particular
And now I'm just somewhere to meet

Rooted to the spot
But I'm too tired to move
They say that kid's a lump
A moron set in stone
Is there enough to pass as true
If not I'll claim that it's a joke
A joke that you don't get
A joke that you don't

It's a joke I swear
It's a joke I swear
It's a joke I swear
It's a joke
Track Name: North Sea War Bride
Your greed for comfort
Left you handing out advice badly
You could not swallow a valentine
For love nor for money
Love nor for money

If a silver whistle means paintings drip dry
We can take a raincheck and I'll be your fake war bride
Broken legs not withstanding, sainthood awaits me
In the fiction aisle deep below the north sea

Your greed for romance
Means you might have to wait a while
See you eyeing up that sawdust
And those acrobats
Those acrobats

If a silver whistle means paintings drip dry
We can take a raincheck and I'll be your fake war bride
Broken legs not withstanding, sainthood awaits me
In the fiction aisle deep below the north sea
Track Name: You Gave Your Heart To The NHS
You gave your heart to the National Health Service
You thought 'with all that love entails
Is it really worth it?'
You just wanted to help people
When you could have thought more about yourself

Could have thought more about yourself
Should have thought more about yourself
Should have thought more about yourself
Well I thought the best of you
'Til I saw the rest of you
But you, all you thought about was health
