Niche Market Lyrics

GOOSE STEPS

Our first dance was the goosestep
An S.S. signature tea set
I’m writing a letter bomb,
The first kiss was a death threat
It made a mess of my thought process
I’m on the level now

Ceremonial Teacher
I feel like scratching my eyes out

But I’m not
I’m soft in the middle like a yolk
Crumpled in the corner like a coat
So Far Away, listening to Tapestry
And I didn’t know me and you didn’t know me

She wouldn’t show me to two-step
And I admit it
I suffer from forgetfulness
But I know how to move
Stuff
It’s always said that you were born
Before sex was a secret
Cold sweat
Death-bed
We all drove down
To see him

Not a clue with no blueprint
No getting chucked on the bonfire
Why don’t you roll in your own muck?
And happy 5th of November

But I’m not
I’m soft in the middle like the yolk
Crumpled in the corner I’m a joke
So Far Away, listening to Tapestry
And I didn’t know me and you didn’t know me

RUBBER

Pierced trails, yellow drag backs
Collect your complex mind pass
Take your ticket
Join the queue
The holiday of a lifetime is waiting for you
Would float down the river with me?
Would you never say never to me?

Open up let’s go
We’ll have a meeting of souls

Cold feet meet warmer shores
Welcoming mine and yours
The slot machines blink
The promenade sinks
There’s a house with no doors (with a ragged old flag)
And Styrofoam floors (and it’s flying half mast)

Open up lets go
We’ll have a meeting of the souls

We can walk by the seaside and no one really knows that you’re mine
We can walk by the seaside now you’re mine

REMISSION

All I need has upped and gone
I was happy in my impure thoughts
You guard the mesh I let my chicken run,
Drop me off in the morning
Leave me to cook in the sun
You’ve got eyes like the moon and your sipping on the spoon
Of alcoholic cough medicine

If only I could see what you’re searching for
It always seems to be my blood smeared on the door

Cos we’re so lost
Just let me lie
Cos I’m still searching for your happy side
And you’re so strange
But so am I
Standing staring vacant at the edge of time

If only I could see what you’re searching for
It always seems to be my blood smeared on the door

When your legs come away
You told me this
It’s my turn to roll
I held my breath
To see how low I’d go,
Can you see in the darkness now?
Have I ever been in love?
I can’t apologise anymore
Cos I don’t even know what for

SURROGATE MAMA

You’re a clown
I’m gonna have some fun with you
Have a laugh
I know you’re trying to compensate
For the boys
They’re hanging off of every word you say
Keep em’ shut (For the boys!)
Open up

What if she said (oooooh)
Nah?
What if she said (oooooh)
Nah?
I don’t know what I did
I don’t know what I meant but
What if she says?

Please, wait
I don’t want to be alone right now
Sake, I don’t know
I suppose it was emotional
But you’re so strange
You shiver on the warmest days
Scars on my face
Did you have a hand in this?

Call me a liar it doesn’t matter
Come out of the water
You’re dead in the water,
Call me a liar it doesn’t matter
Come out of the water
You’re dead in the water
You died

What if she said (oooooh)
Nah?
What if she said (oooooh)
Mama?
I don’t know what I did
I don’t know what I meant but
What if she says?

YOU’RE ONLY HUMAN

Did you really have to skin me alive?
Why?
They will not let it lie, they will not learn
I wasn’t listening
Hurt me one more time,
I never even got to say goodbye
Goodbye
Poor me
Poor me
I wasn’t finished and not for the last time

If god won’t help us
Ian Brown won’t help us
Will anybody help us?
I was counting my blessings then, but I’m genuinely asking now
Will anybody help us?

It’s fine we can cauterize
And chime
I’ll have the humble pie
It’s just desserts
I wasn’t listening, hurt me one more time
And say it’s a wonderful life
Oh colour coded child
Say something else
I wasn’t finished and this is the last time

You’re all wrong

I saw John
When I was truly gone
And he said, “Well, you’re only human”
And I said, “Well, I’m quite like you then”
