"A Few Home Truths" as written by William Jonathan Brown and Samuel Dylan Murphy Preston....
When it's sunny it rains and when it rains, it pours
I can't remember what I came here for
But when I see the look that's in your eyes
I found my tongue and it's life-on-line
We're all so sex-obssessed but we're so straight and clean
I just wanna stay in and watch TV
Watching people do what I'm too scared to try
I steal the lines with life-on-line

And it's my secret life in the bus lane
It's much easier just to complain
Making life much harder than it has to be

I've been working overtime
I've been busy telling lies
A few home truths never break the ice
Don't you trust me?

When I get stinned my dear your time will come
I'll be the best boy to ever treat you wrong
I'll give you reels and reels, how I'm confused and flawed
But baby baby I just got bored
And I'll unload my soul, my fear is tright and true
You hang on words I only wish I knew
We'll fill our minds with bitter ready-made
Just trying to rattle someone else's cage

And it's my secret life in the bus lane
It's much easier just to complain
Making life much harder than it has to be

I've been working overtime
I've been busy telling lies
A few home truths never break the ice
Don't you trust me?

I've been working overtime
I've been busy telling lies
A few home truths never break the ice
Don't you trust me?

I've got a plan and it's going well
I might go to top, you can never tell
A few home truths send me straight to Hell
Don't you trust me?

    General CommentIt COULD be about an affair, but I'm going to say that's what he wants you to think, and that it's really about being in the closet. I'm in the closet, and these lyrics are eerie. To make my case, consider this:

    Morrissey is Preston's hero. Preston even goes by his last name alone, just like Morrissey.

    The male camaraderie found in other songs ("girls come and go but what about friends").

    The word "boys" in the band name, a song name, and more than one song's lyrics.

    The band's logo, that thing you're meant to think is a flower. Have a closer look. What else could it be?

    Not to mention the fact that Preston is just too charismatic to be straight.

    General CommentWhat the fuck nobjock? The symbol is the logo of the B-Unique record label. It's on the Kaiser Chiefs album for gods sake. This band are the best SKA band for years. Though I think they did spoil their image a bit going on Big Brother. You seem rather homophobic. Seaside is their best song though. Actually I'm listening to In Awe Of The Awful at the moment.

    General CommentThis song is about Preston and his compulsive lies. He actually does tell many lies over and over. I hate the ordinary boys though they suck completely. Preston is a tit and trys to sound like Paul Weller, he's just a goon and only sells recors because he went on BB and girls think hes hot. O and erm this song has nothing to do with being homersexual.... Preston is straight and marrying that dumb bint Chantell.
