I awoke all hung withdrawn and sordid.
If eyes are windows on the soul
then mine were locked and boarded.
My body; numb, in pain from the neck up
which seemed more suited
to a prisoner or a shallow dive
that's poorly executed.
Where had all my money gone?
A damp receipt alluded
to a tab and taxi flag-fare
that my bank-card had saluted.
And I couldn't tell you how
I made it home before the sun.
Or pick the barman from a police line-up of one.

I'm in the dark with a shot in the arm.
Falling glass and a rising alarm.
I'm in the dark with a shot in the arm.

I've tried to trace my tracks
from their beginning to conclusion.
But there's not a lot that
hasn't just been lost in the confusion.
To that guilt-induced amnesia
all my memories succumb
bar your beauty, your kindness and the stupid things I've done

In the dark with a shot in the arm.
Falling glass and a rising alarm.
I'm in the dark with a shot in the arm.

Shook off that cold somehow.
I can wear short sleeves now.
It's ice behind my brow.
The inner-north sea is staying calm.

It's my past that'll do you harm.
