"Work, Work, Work (Pub, Club, Sleep)" as written by and Matthew James/donohoe Swinnerton....
Maybe lack of sleep, or last nights drinks
Now my eyes twitching, if that prick coughs again
In the back of my head
I'll smash your fucking face in

Okay, that's it, take a deep breath
I've got to get out of here
I've got to clear my head
I've got to clear my head

It's all these words, ideas and different arguments
Someone's always talking when I try to make some sense
From all this stress that is constantly going on
I just drift along with no focus or meaning
Lean back, stare up at the ceiling
I just drift along with no focus or meaning

I've got the same shirt on for two days in a row
With a soya sauce stain so everyone knows
Can shower and scrub
Still smell like the smoking bit in a Weather spoons pub

I'll have my lunch early, get some sugar in my blood
My clothes still smell of last night
I've got to clear my head

It's all these words, ideas and different arguments
Someone's always talking when I try to make some sense
From all this stress that is constantly going on
I just drift along with no focus or meaning
Lean back, stare up at the ceiling
I just drift along with no focus or meaning

Why do these tourists walk so slow?
Especially now I've got somewhere to go?
And a posh sounding girl, going on and on
About her dog and Mr. Morgan
It sounds so funny when I hear you calling!
Mum be like 'boy what you doing?'
Please shut up and try and sound confident
In a crap job when your mini course is done

It's all these words, ideas and different arguments
Someone's always talking when I try to make some sense
From all this stress that is constantly going on
I just drift along with no focus or meaning
Lean back, stare up at the ceiling
I just drift along with no focus or meaning

    General CommentThis song reminds me a bit of The Modern Age. I like it though, especially the "I'll smash your fuckin face in" part.

    General CommentYeah this is about being in the city with a serious hangover, after a night out, and everything pisses you off. Havent had a chance to get changed get, so you are still wearing diry clothes that smell of smoke. You meet up with everyone for a pub lunch, but can't really concentrate on what is being said.
