Bootleg Crawl His false teeth flew when the wild child hit him The black dog barked as the sun was setting Streetlamp told of another time Where people seethed and people cried Silvery moon What can you do Shed light for the fools Licking whisky off the ground You hear that shattered sound Concrete jungle, what a mess You cut your tongue on shattered glass Crazy old bootleg crawl Silvery moon What can you do Shed light for the fools Who plays those changes? Who plays those changes Jackie was six and Jackie was safe Jackie was six and Jackie was safe Jackie was six and Jackie was safe Jackie was six and Jackie was safe Silvery moon What can you do Shed light for the fools

Gaps 04:11
There’s a house by the road Standing by itself There’s a tree there and a man there And he looks a lot like you See your friends in this place Turning back the time Face stick and your face Is hard to leave behind So it goes Everybody’s voices Rise and flow Singing out for you Tell the night Tell the night So we sing a thousand songs You knew that’s what we’d do But what of those whose Words get stuck and Tangled up in you Tell the night That you are not able to fight And we’ll all raise a glass to the gaps in class And we’ll drink to what’s not right So it goes Everybody’s voices Rise and flow Singing out for you Tell the night Tell the night You know you’ve got to stand tall You know you’ve got to stand strong And there’s no one to say it as there’s no one around You were telling us then What you are telling us now You were telling us all (x4)

Part Dame 01:39
Takes to the streets Part-Dame Heels on his feet, hair on his chest Lipstick on his teeth, hat on his head Part-Dame Relishing the freedom, the feeling, the freedom, the feeling, the freedom Walking in the dark as it feels like freedom Walking in the dark as it feels like freedom Walking in the dark as it feels like freedom Through painted eyes, the world unfurls and takes you by surprise You smile and let it take you You smile and let it take you You smile and let it take you Watch them watch you Through painted eyes, the world unfurls and takes you by surprise You smile and let it take you You smile and let it take you You smile and let it take you Watch them watch you

Young Bone 03:05
Four feet on the wall Four feet on the wall One rolls a cigarette and lights Sharing a bottle of, whatever you like Four feet on the ground Four feet on the ground You scream for the comfort of sound You scream for the comfort of sound Lay down Lay down Lay Young bone on stone Young bone on stone Some fall fast and some fall free oh Some fall fast and some fall free Lay down Lay down, Lay

Ook and the Elephant Bolton, UK

Ook, ook, ook
Say it fast, say it whispery and menacing
Say it as slow as you can.
Your weary ear needs a rest. Everybody clangs so hard.

Go make potions in the back yard. Put some silence in your tunes. Slow them down. Let them breathe. They’ll thank you, and then fly away from you, smiling
