"The Bad Times Are Just Around The Corner"
(originally by Noël Coward)

"The Bad Times Are Just Around The Corner"
(originally by Noël Coward)



They're out of sorts in Sunderland,
And terribly cross in Kent.
They're dull in Hull,
And the Isle of Mull
Is seething with discontent.
They're nervous in northumberland,
And Devon is down the drain,
They're filled with wrath on Firth of Forth,
And sullen on Salisbury plain.
In Dublin they're depressed lads,
Maybe because they're Celts,
For drake is going West, lads,
And so is everyone else.
Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!
Misery is here to stay.

There are bad times just around the corner,
There are dark clouds hurtling through the sky,
And it's no good whining,
About a silver lining,
For we know from experience they won't roll by.
With a scowl and a frown we'll keep our peckers down,
And prepare for depression and doom and dread.
We're going to unpack our troubles from our old kit bag,
And wait until we drop down dead.

From Portland Bill to Scarborough,
They're querulous and subdued,
And Shropshire lads
Have behaved like cads
From Berwick-on-Tweed to Bude.
They're mad at Market Harborough,
And livid at Leigh-on-Sea,
In Tunbridge Wells
You can hear the yells
Of woe-begone bourgeoisie.
We all get bitched about, lads,
Whoever our vote elects.
We know we're up the spout, lads,
And that's what England expects.
Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!
Trouble is on the way.

There are bad times just around the corner,
The horizon is gloomy as can be.
There are black birds over
The greyish cliffs of Dover
And the rats are preparing to leave the BBC.
We're unhappy breed, and very bored indeed,
When reminded of something that Nelson said.
While the press and the politicians nag, nag, nag,
We will wait until we drop down dead.

From Colwyn Bay to Kettering,
They're sobbing themselves to sleep,
The shrieks and wails
In the Yorkshire dales
Have even depressed the sheep.
In rather vulgar lettering,
A very disgruntled group
Have posted bills
On the Cotswold Hills
To prove that we're in the soup.
While begging Kipling's pardon,
There's one thing we know for sure:
If England is a garden,
We ought to have more manure.
Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!
Suffering and dismay.

There are bad times just around the corner
And the outlook's absolutely vile,
There are Home Fires smoking
From Windermere to Woking
And we're not going to tighten our belts and smile, smile, smile.
At the sound of a shot,
We'd just as soon as not
Take a hot water bottle and go to bed,
We're going to untense our muscles till they sag, sag, sag,
And wait until we drop down dead.

There are bad times just around the corner,
We can all look forward to despair.
It's as clear as crystal
From Bridlington to Bristol
That we can't save democracy and we don't much care.
If the Reds and the Pinks
Believe that England stinks
And that world revolution is bound to spread,
We'd better all learn the lyrics of the old 'Red Flag'
And wait until we drop down dead.

"The Ballad Of Me And My Friends"

"The Ballad Of Me And My Friends"



Everybody’s got themselves a plan,
Everybody thinks they’ll be the man, including the girls.
The musicians who lack the friends to form a band are singer-songwriters,
The rest of us are DJ’s or official club photographers.
And tonight I’m playing another Nambucca show,
So I’m going through my phonebook, texting everyone I know,
And I quite a few I don’t, whose numbers found their way into my phone,
But they might come along anyway, you never really know.

None of this is going anywhere –
Pretty soon we’ll all be old,
And no one left alive will really care
About our glory days, when we sold our souls.

But if you’re all about the destination, then take a fucking flight.
We’re going nowhere slowly, but we’re seeing all the sights.
And we’re definitely going to hell,
But we’ll have all the best stories to tell.

"The Corner"
(originally by Cory Branan)

"The Corner"
(originally by Cory Branan)



Out on the corner of what I want, and what I intend to get
day drinking and dreaming of you, I let
the ashtray smoke my last cigarette

Once I had a casual acquaintance with my impending doom
years ago she promised me some day soon
I'd howl at the moon from room to room

I ain't transcending much of nothing
I've been down in it, I ain't free
Weren't no experiment - these seven years they went
like a life out of me

Clowning on the corner of almost gone but maybe not just yet
there's still a little left to pawn and the bones aren't set
The cast is slack, the plaster's wet

Stepping up the escalator singing hell I am out of here
past the predetermined terminals of tears
the wings are warm, the runway's clear

I ain't transcending much of nothing
I'm still down in it, I ain't free
Weren't no experiment - these seven years they went
like a life out of me

Maybe all the world's a hollow recreation, my desperate bretheren
hallowed blue hallucination we play to win
put your right foot out, put your right foot in

But it's a useful little illusion that'll lose you for a song
in the beautiful confusion you've been down and counting on

and it's a useful little illusion that'll lose you for a song
in the beautiful confusion that you've been down and counting on

I ain't transcending nothing
I'm still down in it, I ain't free
weren't no experiment - hell every tear was ran
like a life out of me

Out on the corner what I want, what I intend to get
day drinking and dreaming of you, I let
the ashtray smoke my last cigarette

"The District Sleeps Alone Tonight"
(originally by The Postal Service)

"The District Sleeps Alone Tonight"
(originally by The Postal Service)



Smeared black ink
Your palms are sweaty
And I'm barely listening
To last demands
I'm staring at the asphalt wondering
What's buried underneath where I am

I'll wear my badge
A vinyl sticker with big block letters
Adherent to my chest
That tells your new friends
I am a visitor here: I am not permanent
And the only thing keeping me dry is where I am

You seem so out of context
In this gaudy apartment complex
A stranger with your door key
Explaining that I am just visiting
And I am finally seeing
Why I was the one worth leaving

D.C. sleeps alone tonight

You seem so out of context
In this gaudy apartment complex
A stranger with your door key
Explaining that I am just visiting
And I finally seeing
Why I was the one worth leaving

The district sleeps alone tonight
After the bars turn out their lights
And send the autos swerving
Into the loneliest evening
And I am finally seeing
Why I was the one worth leaving

"The Fastest Way Back Home"

"The Fastest Way Back Home"



I should have seen you were coming,
I should have been prepared.
After all, getting half of what you wish for isn't so rare.
But still I wasn't ready,
You took my by surprise,
You brought a light to my dark like a word from the wise.

Weather wears the mountains right down into the sea,
So I will stand in the rain until I am clean.

We fell in love in the summer, when the skies were clear,
But I'm still wearing my coat from winter last year.
I need to set my house in order, confess and cover my sins.
I need to make a home for you before inviting you in.

Weather wears the mountains right down into the sea,
So I will stand in the rain until I am clean.
Rivers carve the country, a landscape shaped by a stream,
So I will swim in the river for as long as you need.

I said Darling oh my darling you know that everything that I do
Is to try to make me good enough for you.
Darling oh my darling you know that everywhere that I go,
I'm just trying to find the fastest way back home
Back home
Back home
Darling oh my darling you know that everywhere that I go,
I'm just trying to find the fastest way back home

"The Fisher King Blues"

"The Fisher King Blues"



Parents don't be too kind to your kids
Or how else will they grow up to be
Louche Parisian sinners or Nashville country singers
Singing about the terrible things their parents did?
Lovers don't be sparing with the truth
Break their hearts if that's what you must do
Fill them with remorse, tinged with hope of course
And let their baser instincts pull them through

And though it seems a little strange to me
People never really change, it seems

And all across America
Waitresses and boys who play guitar
They fall in love and fall out, the boys have something to sing about
The girls go drown their sorrows at the bars
While in front rooms across the old country
Sat spellbound in front of their TVs
The younger brothers and sisters wonder at what they're missing
And wonder how the air tastes when you're really free

And though it seems a little strange to me
People never really change, it seems
We're all broken boys and girls, at heart
Come together fall apart

And in Battersea power station, the fisher king
Ponders on his ruin, among many other things
He folds his broken hands
Surveys his barren lands
And prays for hope to whisper in the wind

We were born without reason, we will die without meaning
And the world will not shrug all that much at our passing
Yes you can try and try and try
But no one ever makes it out alive

All you broken boys and girls
With your tattered flags unfurled
Fix yourselves then fix the fisher king
Won't you fix yourselves to fix the fisher king?

"The Ladies Of London Town"
(feat. Jamie Lenman)

"The Ladies Of London Town"
(feat. Jamie Lenman)



There’s so many beautiful girls in here tonight,
I can hardly stand it.
Where do they go during the day?
Who the hell do they go home with at the end of the night?
I don’t understand it.
They never go home with me.

You dance as if you’re hours away from death,
You’re wearing too much make-up and showing too much flesh,
And you smile a smile to take away my breath,
Because tonight, and only tonight, you know you’re the best.

The ladies of London town
Go flowing through these streets like water
Running little streams down to the river.
They wash the dirty ground, they sweep me off my feet,
But like an English summer, they’ll soon be gone forever.

I’ve seen you trawling Camden at 4am,
Outside of the clubnight,
Deciding whose house will hold a free-for-all.
I’ve followed you back to mansions and I’ve met all your friends
Under the streetlights
But I can never recall what you’re called.

You dance, you sweat,
Your glance is met,
And you hold my gaze a bit,
And pretend you never did,
And I’m left standing on my own.

The ladies of London town throw one last glance over their shoulders,
Blow a kiss, and then they’re gone forever.

"The Next Round"

"The Next Round"



I drink because I’m thirsty, I drink because I’m dry.
I’m not yet quite thirty, but I feel like I’m dying.
I drink because I want to, I need to, I don’t know what else to do with my time
I won’t say it but you can see it in my eyes.

You drink because you’re lonely, you drink because you’re sad
You always claim every party was the best time you’ve ever had
You drink because you’re scared of a life of living off your own company.
You won’t say it but I can see it in your eyes.

Of all of the things I could become
A lonely drunkard isn’t one for which I would’ve wished when I was young
But drink has drunk my days away
I tried to live like Hemingway, but life just doesn’t work that way
And the pills don’t kill the pain, they just delay.

We drink because we’re scared that, if we should stop,
The good times will go away but the bad times will not.
And what if it’s over, and we’re sober, and we still feel like we’re fixing to die.
What then?
Don’t say it, I can see it in your eyes.

The next round is on me
The next round is on me
The next round is on me
The next round is on me
The next round is on me
The next round is on me
The next round is on me
The next round is on me

"The Next Storm"

"The Next Storm"


We had a difficult winter
We had rough few months
When the storms came in off the coast
It felt like they broke everything on us at once

It's easy enough to talk about Blitz spirit
When you're not holding the roof up and knee deep in it
And the pictures and the papers got ruined by the rain
And we wondered if they'd ever get dry again

But I don't want spend the whole of my life indoors
Laying low, waiting on the next storm
But I don't want spend the whole of my life inside
I wanna step out, and face the sunshine

We lost faith in the omens
We lost faith in the gods
We just ended up clutching at the empty rituals
Like gamblers clutching long odds

I don't care what the weatherman is saying
Because the last time that I saw him he was on his needs knees, he was praying
And the preachers and the scientists got soaked just the same
And we wondered if we'd ever get dry again

But I don't want spend the whole of my life indoors
Laying low, waiting on the next storm
But I don't want spend the whole of my life inside
I wanna step out, and face the sunshine

So open the shutters, raise up the mast
Rejoice, rebuild, the storm has passed
Cast off the crutches, cut off the cast
Rejoice, rebuild, the storm has passed [x2]

I'm not gonna live the whole of my life indoors
I'm gonna step out, and face the next storm
