Track Name: Pulp
he writes paperbacks and publishes himself
sneaks into the book shop and puts them on the shelf
he's tried getting them stocked properly, but the manager is tough
and she refuses to sell the really violent stuff
the shop is well stocked with romance, and there's plenty there for kids
but his stories of destruction, she completely forbids
and yet still he wears disguises and he puts on fake voices
to get his books on the shelves among the more wholesome choices

because his books are about murder
his books are about killing
they focus upon vengeance
in an attempt to be thrilling
they don't hold back on the detail
even when maybe they should
his books are about murder
and they are filled with blood

when they first started appearing, she flicked through the pages
although they turned her stomach, she thought about them for ages
and she found, in time, that these sordid tales
stuck in her head like blood under fingernails
soon the romance novels bore her, she craves violence and more
but she knows the local parents love her family-friendly store
and so she clears them from the window and removes them from the shelf
but every time he leaves a new one she takes a copy for herself

his books are about murder
his books are about killing
they focus upon vengeance
in an attempt to be thrilling
they don't hold back on the detail
even when maybe they should
his books are about murder
and they are filled with blood
Track Name: Cold Showers
the summer sun or a holiday crush
sometimes the heat can get too much
but keep your cool and keep your head
as thermometers rise into the red
the weathergirls are lost for words
new records have been set
but the sun is not the only thing
that’s making you sweat

the only solution to your situation
cold showers
the only relief from your perspiration
cold showers

you get hot under the collar
every time you see her face
and when the sun is shining
your heart quickens in pace
short skirts and short sleeves
highlights in her hair
you’re burning up inside
you’re struggling for air

the only way to flee from the humidity
cold showers
the temperature is insane and you’ve got love on the brain
cold showers

the beach is calling your name
but it’s hers that is on your lips
and you need to make a move
before the temperature dips
Track Name: Bad News
the bills are building up and hope is running low
your job drives you crazy and you'll let anybody know
a problem shared is a problem halved, it's true
and you've become an expert at dividing by two

does every cloud have a silver lining?
or is it just the onset of rain?
and has it become a race
to shelter, and to keep that trace
of desperation out of your brain

no more
bad news
today

the people in the office are getting on your nerves
they were even worse yesterday (if memory serves)
could this mean an improvement? are things shifting from the norm?
or is this just the eye of the storm?

is there light at the end of the tunnel?
or is it actually a cave?
and the entrance has collapsed
and no-one knows we're here
and there's no chance that we will be saved

please,
no more
bad news
today
Track Name: Local Rivalry
We’ve got so much in common
But you live close to me
And so reason declares
That we must be enemies
We could be best friends
If we weren’t at different ends
Of a generic motorway
Somewhere in the UK

I support my local team
and you support yours
we meet before the match
to settle old scores
a bottle for a weapon
a bin-lid for a shield
then those still standing
head for the football field

where did it all start, this built-in hate
can it be explained, or was it just fate?
now you've crossed the line, you've had your warning
I'll see you in the office on monday morning
