I am on, Switched On
A sudden clearness, a clarity
Hidden away in every locked toilet I've been waiting for you in the Joiners Arms
I know your name, I know your name, I danced with you we're all friends here
So this largs we're rhyming like bullets, rolled up twenties
They disappear

You make my tongue loose
You make my tongue loose
I am hopeful and set to free
You make my tongue loose
You make my tongue loose
I am hopeful
On Friday night I do the talking I pay the fine, the dumpster's mine
Trips to the roof, miss what we're missing,
Drunken I love you's on top of the world

And when it runs out we're chasing something we'll never catch
And when it runs out we'll find me
A flat so bleak I've been bitten by a vampire
I find this bleaker than the one it replaces

You make my tongue loose
You make my tongue loose
I am hopeful and set to free
You make my tongue loose
You make my tongue loose
I am hopeful

I can charm I can charm the room
I can charm them all
I can charm I can charm the room
I can charm them all

You make my tongue loose
You make my tongue loose
I am hopeful and set to free
You make my tongue loose
You make my tongue loose
I am hopeful

I can charm I can charm the room
I can charm them all
I can charm I can charm the room
I can charm them all

    "It's a love song about cocaine, its allure. It is no accident that at a time when people are feeling so dispossessed, a drug like cocaine is so enticing. This goes some way to trying to explain that appeal."
