My First Blog Entry


Been busy trying to get some songs recorded lately, another attempt to make creativity pay off in some way. Thought I'd put the lyrics up here as they don't relate to EU but it's still writing I've done and am kinda happy with.

As soon as these are recorded to my satisfaction (tape deck in corner of room seems likeliest at the moment lol) I'll do what I can to link them to here.

Some of these were written for the rarely seen and largely fictional band Rumbling Hoof, the newer ones for The Fireflies, which is a band yet to be seen by the public at large lol.
As far as what we sound like, the aim was a blend of New Model Army hiring Steve Earle, then meeting Dodgy at a Motorhead gig where Rancid and the Wildhearts join in Whether that comes across is another matter entirely.

These are in no particular order but there's songs about women, nice and deranged, under-achievement, cynicism, movies, losing it, finding it and all kinds of other subjects.




Bog Average

Her name looked good with mine she was a fine girl, said she would be my girl,
Dunno why they ever say that,
'Cause every one I've had has had a case of,
Needing their own space 'cause,
Most of my ideas went flat

Up to now I've always been a loser,
Swearing at the news and never doing much about it,
Living out the lifestyle of a loafer, never leave the sofa,
Only exercise my wit,

If the glass is full or empty is irrelevant to me,
I'm just glad I got it 'cause it makes a set of three,
The world is still a jungle and I'm crap at climbing trees,
Now I'm lying in the gutter just to save my knees,

(Chorus) Just another bog average white guy,
Way more drive through than drive by,
When the girlies go by they don't say hi, don't wonder why, just an average guy

Went through school in a daydream, never joined the sports team, couldn't see the point in rugby,
Kids today are looking different, growing in an instant, think that most of them could mug me,

Ain't been stylish since the eighties, my CD's date me, pretty sure my neighbours hate me,
Got a bent car, nowhere near a Bentley, gotta treat her gently, getting on the bus more lately,

Coulda been a general but I don't wanna lead,
Coulda passed all my exams but didn't wanna read,
Coulda been a family man but no-one wants to breed,
I'm most unlikely to succeed,

(Chorus)



Messed Up Face

Out of love and outa luck, drinking out of coffee cups, way to soon to satirise and looking forwards hurts my eyes
On my seventh day alone, pacing round my telephone, something tells that this house just ain't my home I gotta go,

To a venue saying me, that is where I wanna be, half alive and half the world is looking better off than me,
Shoulda waited for a while, there's too much behind my facing up to anyone and anyone gets riled,

(Chorus) And you think you're going backwards, you kinda fell from grace, one more door and then you'll find me, me and my messed up face,
I've been drawn into disorder, I'm feeling out of place, paint myself into a corner, me and my messed up face

Peel my bandages away, get me ready for the way you leave me broken up, stuck in a rut and on my knees again,
So I brought it on myself, well I ain't got nothing else, spend an hour to clear my throat to say at least I got my health,

And I sleep an hour a night, and I'm always losing fights, you can write a book about me I got issues left and right,
But I needed you to stay, you're the one who got me started on this journey but we only got halfway,

(Chorus)

Lost my anchor to the world, yeah it's all over a girl, good or bad it ain't the first time or the last, won't be the worst,
Now you're filling up your sails, I'm in hospital in Wales, started feeling like a curse I ain't seen one good looking nurse,

And I know you'll never call, like you don't know me at all, that's okay you're just a hole down which I couldn't help but crawl,
Now I'm dealing with the pain, never fall that far again until the next time that my groin controls my brain,

(Chorus)



Baby You'll Do For Me

I can't stand to see you cry,
Should just be laughter shining from your eyes,
Since the sun came up on you,
And I saw what you could do,
Ain't no problem I can find,

I never felt like this before,
Ain't nothing like you in the brochure that's for sure,
When your hair's across your face,
Next to you becomes the place,
That I'm patriotic for,

Lemme tell ya

(Chorus) Baby, You'll do for me,
Baby, you'll do for me,
I'll never find another girl who makes me feel like you do,
And I hope I'll do for you

You laugh at all my big ideas,
Ain't got so many now 'cause half my dreams are here,
Can't be real but I don't care,
Just don't pinch me anywhere,
It's only waking up I fear

Last night you wore that dress again,
The one the sun can make become a second skin,
Mighta taken me too far,
Feel like I been hit by a car,
This ten-foot cheque I'm cashing in,

And loving you is easier than anything I'll ever do again,

(Chorus)

I can't remember what I said,
You turned and smiled as if your mind was read,
Put your hand inside of mine,
Left before they shouted time,
Made me buy a double bed,

And did all kinds of crazy things in my head,

(Chorus)



Any Other Time

Held it down, Kept it clean
Outlaws and In-Laws, to set the scene,
Scared to move, hard to eat,
Can't keep my leg still and it's been a funny week,

I didn't wanna meet your parents on a trip,
Why did we have to go from paradise to this,

Everything's brown,
Showhome to 1950,
Can't decipher looks they give me,
I'm sitting up straight watching TV I don't like,
Uncomfortable,
And awkward at the same time, ain't it getting past their bedtime,
And yes a sandwich would be fine....

Any other time

Started well, back at home,
Lit the candles, we were all alone
Started thinking, what have I missed,
Right there on the calendar that fatal asterisk,

I didn't wanna meet your parents on a trip,
Why did we have to go from paradise to this,

Head-Fuck and tea,
I'm measured for a sweater,
No-one wields the needles better
Wearing pyjamas talking seven kinds of shite
What's going on,
I dunno where I am and now they're talking 'bout the garden,
We ought to let Frank loose on mine,

Any other time


Happiness

Every time I see you no matter what youíre doing youíre smiling, (Five miles wide)
Making me use words for the first time like today youíre beguiling, (Kinda feel funny inside)
Girl youíre like a medicine, everything youíve said has done wonders, (For my mind)
Since the day I met you until the day that weíre done here,

Iím really happy that youíre mine

And every second apart, is half an hour to my heart yeah,
You make me point to nine-fifteen,
And as a matter of fact, it started out as a laugh yeah,
This happiness thatís never leaving me

Sitting in your flat with you laid across my lap in the sunlight (Move your leg)
Conversation finds that we share the same opinion on marmite (Weíll eat it every now and again)
Make me understand what they meant in all those songs in the sixties (Mountain High)
Youíre the type of woman who makes the other women get bitchy
Iím as happy as a perv online

And every second apart, is half an hour to my heart yeah,
You make me point to nine-fifteen,
And as a matter of fact, it started out as a laugh yeah,
This happiness thatís never leaving me


White Trash

Got tattooed below the elbow when my career ran out of rungs,
Everybody talks in fifties I just got a pile of ones,
Well yeah I owned three vans that weren't connected to my work at all,
I designed a diet that was pure cholestorol,
I never rose above my background,
My bread is never brown,
Money can't buy everything,
But it's great to have around,
Yea heh heh,

Guess I'm white trash and it suits me,
Ain't no drees code where I'm from,
I like a town where people know me,
And Iíve been white trash all along
All along

I took people as I found Ďem
Except the ones that sounded French
Every month I toss a coin between
The cable and the rent

Well I got oil on half my t-shirts
And the other three donít fit
I drink and smoke and hope I never
Find a way to quit

I never eat a meal I canít pronounce,
I live beyond my means,
If it wasnít for the lottery,
Iíd only have my dreams,
Yeah heh heh,

Guess Iím white trash and it suits me
Ainít no dress code where Iím from
I like a town where people know me
And Iíve been white trash all along
All along

I never get mistook for anyone,
I do believe the hype,
Canít call me self-sufficient
But Iíve eaten squirrel twice

Guess Iím white trash and it suits me
Ainít no dress code where Iím from
I like a town where people know me
And Iíve been white trash all along
All along

Guess Iím white trash and it suits me
Ainít no dress code where Iím from
Guns and monster trucks excite me,
And Iíve been white trash all along
All along


King Kong

If I was in a film, Iíd be in like Flynn
Standing next to John Wayne,ĎCause he always wins
Steve McQueen at the wheel, Arnie for the guns,
Milla for her multipass, And Jackie Chan up front

The Fellowship, They went through hell,
Shame nobody thought to take the eagles there as well,
They rescued Sam and Frodo from the lava of Mount Doom,
They were there and back inside an afternoon,


Whyíd they put doors in the wall,
If you wanna stop King Kong,
Why put Ďem there at all

Whyíd they put doors in the wall,
Heíd still be there,
Youíd still be cool (Youíd still be cool)

If I was in a film, try my hand at porn
Grow a big moustache, see if I belong
No lines to learn, just where to stand,
Slap-happy babes from far away but get up close they might be men
Why did they do (Why did they do)
Highlander two (What a piece of shit)
Howíd they lose Godzilla in New York heís fucking huge,
Why do small kids ruin films that otherwise were good,
Itís a sure as Ensign Ricky being dogfood

Whyíd they out doors in the wall,
If you wanna stop King Kong,
Why put Ďem there at all
Whyíd they put doors in the wall,
Heíd still be there,
Youíd still be cool (Youíd still be cool)

Whyíd they out doors in the wall,
If you wanna stop King Kong,
Why put Ďem there at all
Whyíd they put doors in the wall,
Heíd still be there,
Youíd still be cool (Youíd still be cool)



Independence Day

I need to make a journey with my feet or with my mind
ĎCause everything Iím seeing makes me think the worldís gone blind
Well youíre never gonna get me in your war or on your side
And when the oceans flood the lands, youíll wanna hitch a ride, Iíve had enough

Chorus:
Of all the promises you break,
How you cover up mistakes,
How nobody takes the blame,
Underneath youíre all the same,
Didnít come here to be led,
Donít wanna run no rivers red,
This is my Independence Day,
Ok, yay hey hey,
This is my Independence Day


Well itís all been done before I guess, why should things ever change,
When surgery and perjury are cable cars to fame,
When idiots make twice as much as anyone worthwhile,
We candy coat this leaking boat we sit waist deep and smile, Iíve had enough

Chorus


When I look into the sky and see the stars above
I see more questions than thereís answers and to me man, thatís enough

But thereís still people looking at the same skies as me saying nothingís freeÖ..
Iíve had enough

Chorus



Got It Wrong

Got a friend itís like heís in slo-mo,
Well heís turned right up but the volumeís low,
Got a hobby that I canít get into,
Iím just clipping at the hedge heís been through,
Well I donít wanna look at him with my head up my arse,
ĎCause live fast die young still sounds flash,
If I gotta get more than the smile on my face,
I donít wanna be a member of the human race,

Opportunity comes knocking,
I guess Iím never in,
Spending to much time talking,
Canít finish what you donít begin,

(Chorus) Everything I ever did in my life
I know, I know I got it wrong,
Everything I ever did in my life
I know, I know I got it wrong,
Everything I ever did in my life,
Just trying to make a difference,
(Trying to make it alright),
Everything I ever did in my life,
I know, I Know I got it wrong

Never saw the manual that came with me
So I reply with a firm maybe
If I tackle all my issues and apply myself,
Then Iím applied and tackled and someone else,
Nothing on my mind that you want on yours,
Iím too familiar with the floor,
But when youíre waking up that low,
Then upís the only way to go
Canít keep up with the Joneses,
I donít know where they live,
Fresh out of worthwhile motives,
Canít fight fire when your fire ainít lit

(Chorus)

I got it wrong,
I fucked it up,
I only have one kind of luck
I got it wrong,
Misread the signs,
Somewhere I left all sense behind


50/50

You got the eyes of an addict and the body of a whore,
Dunno what I want but I don't want more,
Never thought I'd be living with an act of god,
You crave the attention of an angry mob,

With a well-placed scream you fill the room,
And everyone around you with impending doom,
Some say it's a miracle you got this far
But I gotta admire the mess you are,

Everybody gives me jealousy and sympathy,

(Chorus) Are you a blessing, or a curse
Is this addiction, or a thirst,
Ok you dress up, like a nurse
But the ones you get in hospitals don't leave you feeling worse

Met you in the shadows of a crowded club,
And took the opportunity to quit my job,
Just spent our days with us entwined,
Nothing but the next night on our minds,

Well time may heal but it brings decay,
You soon returned to your old ways,
Starting trouble just to see me fight,
I'd rather watch TV tonight,

And everybody gives me jealousy and sympathy

(Chorus)

Shoulda realised when I met your mum,
Standing at the door with a loaded gun,
Don't look much but in her day,
She ruled her wing in Holloway,

It's 50/50 what I think,
I'm like a long-tailed cat in a skating rink,
I'm sick and tired of feeling scared,
But you're up for it everywhere,

And everybody gives me jealousy and sympathy

(Chorus)


That's the ones ready to go, anyhow, a fair few more needing chords/parts/finishing in general
