3rd single off the second Guide Dog record - coming out on Hi-Vis Records in 2019

lyrics

Breathing fire tryin’a get inspired,
Now the protein shakes are keepin’ me alive,
Fear and loathing in the soft play,
Changin’ my religion while I’m waiting for the AA,
Hey,
I’m gonna learn to fly,
When the money runs dry,
You can paint my picture with a look of despair,
The neighbours are inviting us ‘round their conservatory.

I want to get high,
Shiny assholes in the sky,
Bang a drum ’til you get young and free,
I’d be in your army if you’d love me.

I got one in the oven,
From a date with destruction,
And a wedding in an elevator shaft I can’t get out of,
I’m gonna grope this rope around my neck,
Lock me up and throw the key inside.
I got designer coffee,
And I came out of my body,
With an insulin shot ‘cos you supersized me,
He’s got a wombat face,
And he’s takin’ your place,
Minty breath but I still smell a psycho,
Psycho.

I want to get high,
Shiny assholes in the sky,
Bang a drum ’til you get young and free,
I’d be in your army if you’d love me.

Whisper sweet agonal gasps in my ear,
Stick up with a Nerf Gun holding back the tears,
I wish I was a pirate digging up treasure,
I wish I was a better interlocutor,
Plastic particles giving me hope,
I found myself at the dry ski slope,
Get married to your taxidermy,
I want you to breath fire with me.

I want to get high,
Shiny assholes in the sky,
Bang a drum ’til you get young and free,
I’d be in your army if you’d love me.
