"Dead End" as written by and Sam Lewis Roberts....
Oh what's wrong with me
Said oh what's wrong with me
I know what I don't want to be
A dead end on the family tree
And I just lost my virginity
To a girl who won't remember me at all
Took her out on a shopping spree
Happiness never happened for free
Could it be that I imagined things
I'm just sad instead of heartbroken
She came home but she's leaving again
She's coming back but she won't say when(chorus)
And I don't sing songs anymore
I don't feel young anymore
And it's hard to conceal
That these tears that I cry are for real
Any more
My pop said I should be like him
My mom says I can live with them
I had to ask my little brother to lend
Me change for the bus ‘til I see him again
I'm getting drunk every day of the week
My ship sunk but it had no leak
A fortune teller on Bishop street
She read my hand and the future is bleak
I'm tired of sitting upon the fence
I've got no self confidence
Why don't I have a circle of friends
I'm so square they don't even pretend
(chorus)
Don't give in
You can never let them win
But I get cold
I get cold
Every night, night, night,
Without a prayer in my heart, heart, heart
Oh what's wrong with me
Said oh Lord what's wrong with me
I know what I don't want to be
A dead end on the family tree
And the train for my salvation
Is departing from the station
She don't feel like conversation
So I'm talking to myself
I got nobody else
I got my bottle of booze and my stale cigarettes
Down from the shelf
(chorus)

    General Commentone of the first songs i fell in love with off the album-other than "brother down" cause it'd been released and i was farmiliar with it and i loved it- how ever- this song was so catchy and the words were just so good- i love it. - i know what i dont wanna be: a dead end on the family tree- it's the same story for all of us i think...

    General Commentmy favourite song off the album... it just has this air of upbeat hopelessness that captures the ups and downs of having a quarter-life-crisis so damn well.
