exit car park X-ray and Costa
an extra shot stay strong
anyway that blood’s gone off

to Glasgow wasnโ€™t very old

not sure which floor weโ€™re on
the road to cappuccino yes

itโ€™s losing control sprinkles
please foolish things remind
me of losing my hair tickling
the ivories these squeaky

wheelchairs weeks if sheโ€™s
lucky he was there more
often if I could did you see
that poor young girl?
