Track Name: i did it deliberately
I won't be home for Christmas
I won't be home at all
I drove my car into the sea at Portobello
And worst of all, I did it deliberately

I won't be around this summer
I won't be around at all
I drank myself into a hospital drama
And worst of all, I did it deliberately

I did it deliberately
I did it so we could be free from the lies
We tell to ourselves
Free to despise
The truth in ourselves

I won't be back for the funeral
I won't be back at all
I buried my heart in a box in the ocean
And worst of all, I did it deliberately
Track Name: a slow car crash
You know I dream of a car crash
The rip of steel through skill
I'm gonna pick you up from the party tonight
Better strap yourself in
You know I dream of a funeral
Standing at your grave
It doesn't take long for the rot to set in
And you won't feel a thing
Just lie back and be brave

You know that I sleepwalk every night
But you don't know where I go

You know I dream of a plane crash
Falling through the sky
I'm trying to help you on with your oxygen mask
You're trying not to cry
You know I dream of an overdose
Poison in our blood
It doesn't take long for the drugs to kick in
And you won't feel a thing
Drowning in the flood
Track Name: the fire sale
Haven't you ever desired
To lose all your things in a fire
Burn all your memories down
To ashes and dust on the ground

Welcome to the fire sale
Everything must go
So we can start again

Haven't you ever been scared
To lose all your troubles and cares
Bury yourself underground
And scatter the flowers all around

How can you stand there and say that you're innocent?
Track Name: question mark
In East Lothian
We're dancing and drinking hard
We're doing the eightsome reel
We're getting the steps from Kenny in the band
Across the ocean
He's standing there on a bridge

A great big question mark

Back in East Lothian
We're on the single malts
I'm pulling the pins from your hair
As the castle floats in the fog
Across the ocean
He's standing there on a bridge
