        4. High and Dry
        5. Fake Plastic Trees

Opening Lyrics:

When you were here before
Couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You’re so fuckin’ special
But I’m a creep
I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doin’ here?
I don’t belong here
I don’t care if it hurts
I wanna have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice

Karma Police

Length: 4:24

Release: 2016

Opening Lyrics:

Karma police, arrest this man
He talks in maths, he buzzes like a fridge
He’s like a detuned radio
Karma police, arrest this girl
Her Hitler hairdo is making me feel ill
And we have crashed her party
This is what you’ll get
This is what you’ll get
This is what you’ll get
When you mess with us
Karma police, I’ve given all I can
It’s not enough, I’ve given all I can
But we’re still on the payroll


No Surprises

Length: 3:49

Release: 2016

Opening Lyrics:

A heart that’s full up like a landfill
A job that slowly kills you
Bruises that won’t heal
You look so tired, unhappy
Bring down the government
They don’t, they don’t speak for us
I’ll take a quiet life
A handshake of carbon monoxide
And no alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
Silent, silent
This is my final fit
My final bellyache

High and Dry

Length: 4:17

Release: 2015

Opening Lyrics:

Two jumps in a week
I bet you think that’s pretty clever, don’t you, boy?
Flying on your motorcycle
Watching all the ground beneath you drop
You’d kill yourself for recognition
Kill yourself to never, ever stop
You broke another mirror
You’re turning into something you are not
Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry
Drying up in conversation
You will be the one who cannot talk

Fake Plastic Trees

Length: 4:50

Release: 2015

Opening Lyrics:

Her green plastic watering can
For her fake Chinese rubber plant
In the fake plastic earth
That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plans
To get rid of itself
It wears her out
It wears her out
It wears her out
It wears her out
She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns
