Track Name: Boots
Are you serious?
Are you my only friend?
Are you serious?
Are you my only one?

They serve a perfect model
So I take my bottle
And I drink from their boots
I drink from their boots
On the sea of sucker suits

I don't know why, but I feel chastised when I look in their eyes
When they say I'm in trouble
I've got nothing to hide

Are you serious?
Are you my only friend?
Are you serious?
Are you my only one?

So I go and stand with the rolled eyes
And it's a funny thing, but it's a beautiful view
It's a beautiful view
Brick, brick, brick, wood and glass
Here's something, some money, go home tonight

They serve a perfect model
So I take my bottle
And I drink from their boots
I drink from their boots
On the sea of sucker suits

Are you serious?
Are you my only one?
Track Name: Machine Green
First they break you and they take you to heart
Double boil your vision just to spoil the art
And like every sausage is a link in the chain
If you start eating now, you'll have to try it again

So tell me, who's your favourite author?
Mine's Graham Greene
He started with the start and kept his sentences lean
Lean like a sub machine
And I lie awake with the question mark
Singing la la la la la la la
When I hit the bottle, I lost my spark

He's an old drinking buddy with a very good laugh
He hit on his wife and he fired his staff
So if you've got to go and answer, you're out of luck with him
And if she don't talk to brandy, she may talk with some gin

So tell me, who's your favourite player?
Mine was Joe Greene
He played up the middle and his nickname was mean
That's the name of his team: mean
Yeah, it's the name of his game

So tell me, who's your favourite singer?
Mine was Al Green
He sang with his heart, that's how he kept his steam
Like a soul machine
And I lie awake with the question mark
Singing la la la la la la la
When I hit the bottle, I lost my spark
