The opening of a new book
A singular wave crashing
The opening of a new book
Sat on your chuff knowing nothing
The opening of a new book
A ticket on a train from nowhere to somewhere
The opening of a new book
Are you Elephant Man or George Michael?
The opening of a new book
A sip, a swig, a gulp, a mouthful, a session, a bender, a life
The opening of a new book
Does this personality have any brakes?
The opening of a new book
Does anyone know who oils the brakes?
Are you supposed to oil them yourself?

Can you whisky? Can you gin?
Can you speed without brakes?
Are you cancelled? Are you taken?

Can you whisky? Can you gin?
Can you speed without brakes?
Can anyone repair me?

Can you whisky? Can you gin?
Can you speed without brakes?
Are you cancelled? Are you taken in?

Can you whisky? Can you gin?
Can you speed without brakes?
Can anyone repair me?
