Track Name: Broken Nose
Won't you help me heal my broken nose, got pushed into a river
Won't you help me heal my broken nose, got pushed into a river
I'll repeat this line until you're hating me
Won't you help me heal my broken nose, just push me in a river, set me free

Don't blame the drinks it's not their fault, got pushed into a river
Don't blame the drinks it's not their fault, got pushed into a river
I drunk them, it was not them drunk me
Don't blame the drinks you just blame me and my instinctive personality

The river was cold, wet with water, trees all around
The river was cold, wet with water, trees all around
A playing field by a forest, the forest where I took your daughter
Trees all around

Won't you call my friends and ask for help? Got pushed into a river
Spent the evening watching candles burn
Got high on matchstick fumes
I will hold you close until you're burning me
Won't you help me put this fire out
Just push me in a river, pull me out

Won't you help me heal my broken nose, got pushed into a river
Won't you help me heal my broken nose, got pushed into a river
I'll repeat this line until you're hating me
Won't you help me heal my broken nose, just push me in a river, set me free
Track Name: Number Twenty-Five
If I could just hold your hand for a while
Or rest my head on you, to make you smile

Gotta keep getting me up
Gotta keep getting me off
At number twenty-five
That's where I spent the night
And then you call me on the phone
You tell me that you are at home and then you ask:
What do you wanna do?
What do you wanna do?

I just want to be a single page in your diary
Just like Mr E before

Gotta keep getting me up
Gotta keep getting me off
At number twenty-five
That's where I spent the night
And then you call me on the phone
You tell me that you are at home and then you ask:
What do you wanna do?
What do you wanna do?

Well, I want you
In your bedroom
With no clothes on

Wrap things up and get the hell out of this town
Come on Grandpa, stick your foot on the gas.....
Track Name: Couldn't [Live Version]
Got this dirt growing in my nails
Feeling brown but my skin is pale
Hairbrush died a week last Friday too
Hope Mama don't find what's lurking in my shoe

Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't
Couldn't make it without you
Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't
Grip so strong, don't have to chew
Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't
Couldn't get myself downstairs
Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't
Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't

Parts of me that smell like mouldy bread
Passage of the night to morning breath
Leave out bean gas, keep your friends at bay
Stay up at night, inspired by sugar cane

Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't
Couldn't make it without you
Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't
Grip so strong, don't have to chew
Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't
Couldn't get myself downstairs
Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't
Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't

Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't
Couldn't make it without you
Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't
Grip so strong, don't have to chew
Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't
Couldn't get myself downstairs
Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't
Couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't, couldn't.
