lyrics

He got the graveyard shift
Down at the National Trust
And he's a sleeping policeman he's a
A little out of touch

I remember how the sun was going down
Dripping golden buttering the roofs in town

And he's a regular feature
Out on the Catalan scene
He got his pockets full he packing
Acres of polythene

It was hot the sweat was running in my skin
Clinging on to anyone and anything

Oh the hackles on my neck
My follicles tickled in the sick and sour breath
Everything happened at once
When I looked in to his eyes
It's there on my sight
Oh it's with me everywhere I go

And when he's on the floor
It's a frenzy of life
He knows that everyone's watching him they're
Like moths around the light

in the morning everything had disappeared
And I just walked around and felt a little weird

No now when our lips align
Oh honey i'm looking at the space behind your eyes
Everything happened at once
When I let go of his hand
It remains in my veins
Oh it's with me everywhere I go
