Ep 9: 'Knock Me Down'

Tune in as the boys discuss Alex's first not-fully-terrible song! Also a salute to bakers.

KNOCK ME DOWN LYRICS

Verse 1

That’s enough I can’t do it anymore,

Don’t have the strength to pick my heart up off the floor

‘Cos every time I do

You knock me down


I change myself in every way

So those three words I’d hear you say

But baby, ooo baby,

You knock me down


CHORUS

Oh and baby when you break my heart

You really go to town

I set ‘em up 

and you knock me down

I said baby when you’re breakin' my heart,

You really go to town

I set ‘em up

And you knock me down


Verse 2

I am going to lock the door

Not gonna fall in love anymore

Cos every time I do

You knock me down


It hurts enough to hear you love another

But when you say you love me like a brother 

Baby, those times, 

They knock me down

(Those times they knock me)


CHORUS

Oh and baby when you break my heart

You really go to town

I set ‘em up 

and you knock me down

I said baby when you’re breakin' my heart,

You really go to town

I set ‘em up

And you knock me down (down, down down)


-SOLO-


Outro

Oh and baby in the dead of night

When there’s no one else around

I set ‘em up

And you knock me down

'REALITY'S IN MY FACE' LYRICS

Before I change my mind

Reality’s in my face

My mind

Ep 7: 'Rose Garden'

Join us on a sugar-fuelled journey into the minds of two dinguses. Christmas songs, special guests, and ice-cold burns.

'ROSE GARDEN' LYRICS


-spoken word-

One more time, one more time


Verse 1

When the world just gets too hard

I go to my rose garden

And I sit and lat the fragrance take me away


I could spend hours

Lying amongst the flowers

And thinking back to a happier time

On the days when the world is grey


Chorus

Ooo x3

Rose garden

An escape form time and space


Verse 2

They always give me the time of day

So in my own way

I do what I can to help them out


Sometimes it’s a test of my metal

Living amongst the petals

You might call that girly

But I guess thats what it’s all about


Chorus

Ooo x3

Rose garden

An escape form time and space


Verse 3

Sometimes a thorn will make me cry

And I’ll wish that all those roses die

Keeping flowers alive can seem so futile


The pain may be real

But wounds they do heal

My flowers are always there for me

The feeling should be mutual


Chorus (key change)

Ooo x3

Rose garden

An escape form time and space

Ooo x3

Rose garden

It’s funny how such little things

Can turn my feelings, make me sting


Spoken word:

Ooo! Rose garden! 

You’re an escape form both time and space aren’t you?

And ooo! Rose garden!

It’s funny how such little things can turn my feelings and make me sting, isn’t it?

But whenever we’re together we have the most wonderful time!

We have so much fun! 

Oh I love you rose garden!

…Got any snuff?! …Any per chance?

Any snuff, anyone?!

'Walking Straight' Lyrics

Written by Nick O’Donnell & Floodboy | Performed by Floodboy


I’ve been walking around and stumbling down

with my feet firmly off the ground


The words don’t come out when I’m speaking

And I don’t know what I’m drinking

She lit a match and burnt my finger

and it’s only the pain that lingers


So I lie today and you’ll know the truth tomorrow

and the pain will stay knowing you now know the meaning


Hold on to what you’ve been looking for

Hold on too what you’ve been searching for


We were walking we lost our way

Saw a mirrorball wished I was there


So I lie today and you’ll know the truth tomorrow

and the pain will stay knowing you now know the meaning


I’ve been walking around and stumbling down

with my feet firmly off the ground

Ep 1: 'Amazing'

Alex and James set off on their cringey journey through the past and what a song to start on. With low production quality and claims of immortality, Alex's song 'Amazing' is a good omen of the terrible songs to come.
