From the Album:
* To the hilt

I’m standing on the clifftop, watchin’ stormclouds grow
It’s disappointment time again, I’ve been up here before
The wind balloons my jacket, seabirds collide below
A pier stands on a hundred stilts, some stranded U.F.O
I’ve stopped the car, in a dead end street
Rear view mirror, nothing but empty seats
I could brace myself, smash through the concrete
Find what’s behind that wall of insecurity
From gin and jags, to sqaulor and skag
Selena, what a drag
Once we were, back to back
Almost there, but white was black
Why me?, designed to compete
Always, flirtin’ with defeat
Why me?, I knew it when we met
Hell, what else could you expect
Why me?, hungry for affection
It ends, with chaos and rejection
Through the wall and over the cliff
I made the decision, you took quite a risk
Selena says, as she strokes my head
With luck like yours, you should be dead
Forget the past and melt my silver spoon
Selena, not a minute too soon
Broke the chains of negativity
At last I score a victory
Why me?, no need to compete
Nowadays, I think at defeat
She’s me, I felt it when me met
That feel, cancels all regret
Me, the center of attraction
The and, adds to your confusion
I’m standin’, on the clifftop
Waving, waving
Why me?, no need to compete
Nowadays, I wink at defeat
She’s me, I felt it when we met
That feel, cancels all regret
Still me, the center of attraction
The and, adds to your confusion
I’m standin’, on the clifftop
Waitin’ for the cops
