No need to worry I’m feeling good okay? Taking medicines I should have taken yesterday I’m still burning out I’ve got lots to shout about My time is running out That’s too bad that you’re too good Must remember all I should Again today Tomorrow will be good okay?

Scaffolds 03:12
Lean on the ones you love Let them know; the pain inside your head That’s what they said Bloods bleed like they’ve never been bled When your eyes roll I’m a demon with the devil’s soul I lost nine lives The last one is old So please don’t let it go Throw me the rope I’ll build the scaffold To hold together Together what we should hold I lost nine lives The last one is old So please don’t let it go You stole more than you ever sold Now undercover You die each night only to unfold Unrecovered Throw me the rope I’ll build the scaffold To hold together Together what we should hold

He’s wiped out on alcohol And doesn’t see the need for it all Buggered by the uselessness of thee She’s wiped out on oxygen Flavoured kind I toast to them Not bothered by & what they cannot see Please me Please me Please get off my suitcase I just want to be free & I cannot sit with you If & why I don’t want to I’ve got better places I can be… Tell me why I’m in this mess Over tired; I’m over stressed Held down by these forces around me Please me Please me Please get off my suitcase I just want to be free Please me Please me Please get off my suitcase I just want to be free You sucked me up into this strife So move on now; with your own life & please me… Please me… Please me…

Dear Dad 02:51
Dear Dad Where are you now Where are you now I wonder? Beneath the tree The tree we buried you under Been ten years too long Ten years to realise you’re gone I miss you In the window pane I can see your reflection When it disappears I’m lost with no direction Been ten years too long Ten years to realise you’re gone I miss you You’re alive You survive Sometimes in my mind I swear, I can hear you Dear Dad Where are you now Where are you now I wonder?

I grew up alone in a crowed place My windows so cloudy and common place Couldn’t see the signs Everyone else saw Like a blind man walking willingly through a door Chained myself to cigarettes and boozy perfume Trying to hide an elephant in the middle of the room Got my pipe and slippers And I use them though the day Get down Get low Don’t think I can survive with a clean window World wash me up and waste all of my time I don’t know how or what for But I’d like to stop it now And maybe live some more If I don’t drop her soon She’s gonna drop me Like a blind man walking off a cliff willingly

Lady 04:45
Broken, burnt out & blue babe Buried deep beneath my shell Spinning round like a sailor A sailor man without a sail You tell me want & You tell me what I need to hear Lady, where’d you go to disappear? Lately, I hear you sound so near I was hiding from a feeling A feeling buried deep within Living life without a meaning But I meant to let you in So I found you Yes I found you here Lady, why’d you go & disappear? Lately, I can hear you sound so near Scaramanga Keep him near Disappear.

45s 03:26
Plastic cassettes stank the studio He broadcast dust into the air 10 doors, 2 cups, 1 cafeteria The red light's on in 5 Remember them were the days When the old man began the radio I used to load his 45s You found a friend who spoke in stereo Back then when he was (alive) Loading 45s

And so, now you know You come again, the seed is sown Match the pain, materialistic gain Did it fill the emptiness? So won’t you smile with Ones you live to love with Never want to part with Solitude’s a sad myth Never wish to see you With another being Having you is seeing A circle round a day again Passed by the place you used to work You were selling out, when I stepped in like a jerk Trying to buy some coolness I was too hard on you; too soft to lose to The kind of blues that kill you So won’t you be with Whom you are yourself with Little time to play with Whom you’d never part with I could never even imagine Someone to be so haunting Having you is wanting A circle round a day again If I slide please remind me Only if you find me; sometimes I forget To cry with Ones you live to love with Never want to part with Solitude’s a sad myth Never wish to see you With another being Having you is seeing A Circle round a day Make your peace with The hand you have to deal with For what you have today Soon you’ll have to part with I could never even imagine Someone to be so haunting Having you is wanting A circle round a day A circle round a day again

My #9 04:20
Holding crisis talks with myself On a mundane night Try my with treason Light the fire that's feeding On a melting mind My number 9 I'm breaking down There is no sound But there is a will I'd be better for you Be much better for you Not mentally ill Some words are wrong If silence is right There's a light I'll never need When darkness is a friend indeed My number 9

I fear for Sunday morning On Sunday morning, Sunday night ensues I fear for church bells Sunday smells of Sunday afternoon I fear for the TV screen on Sunday night The Sunday evening news I’m fearful for that feeling I am beside myself, I’m in poor health My homework’s overdue Beneath the shelf it hides itself From what she never knew Round playgrounds I pretend I’m not alone I have friends like you I’m fearful for that feeling See me for what I have become I just wanted to be someone I just want to be I feel like I am mourning the death of something That I never knew Flat I fall on my face; my empty place Is my new Sunday blue Fearful I might regret there is something I might forget to do I’m fearful for that feeling Why aren’t you?

Okay Alright 02:30
Crazy skies, sunny night Please don’t fight You’ll be good, okay alright? You’re alive, more than me Something about neurology Connecting electricity inside When you’re with me Together we Create little pieces of our histories Must you survive the daily grind? Take it how you really want Leave the rest behind Don’t be defined or re-organised Ain’t no privilege to be Somebody other than yourself When you’re with me Together we Creating little pieces of our histories

about

The title track has been selected as BBC ATL's Track For The Day (#501) - “Beginning softly with a Parachutes era Coldplay riff, ‘My #9’ eventually blossoms into a big sounding, melancholic melody".
