Bite your tongue boy
Squared up casual like propelled eyelids
You're trying too hard
Frenzied thoughts, body surging with adrenaline

He thinks he's slick with those he's hanging with all night
I guess at night time it's tough to be polite

Ah ah
He said watch your back son, nights are no fun
Ah ah
He said you're not alright, alright

They messed you up, boy
Know-it-all lightweights left you down spitting bones
Broken discord
Slicked back riff-raff sideways staring

He thinks he's slick with those he's hanging with all night
You're right at night time, it's tough to be polite

Ah ah
He said watch your back son, nights are no fun
Ah ah
He said you're not alright, alright

Ah ah
He said watch your back son, nights are no fun
Ah ah
He said you're not alright, alright

Time gets lost on you
Time gets lost on you

Why?
Why?

Ah ah
He said watch your back son, nights are no fun
Ah ah
He said you're not alright, alright

Ah ah
He said watch your back son, nights are no fun
Ah ah
He said you're not alright, alright

    Song Fact“Sick Boy first came to life in early 2013 when Malcolm recorded Jack Schumacher (guitar, bass) and Mitch Ansell (guitar, bass) doing an improvised jam to a programmed drum beat. They played for about 25 minutes. Later on Malcolm went through and found bits and pieces from the jam, then chopped them up, rearranged and constructed totally new riffs into a near complete bed for the song. From there the song was layered with unique ideas from other members, which created the version you hear now.

    There was only one rehearsal of this song before we recorded it. A lot of the final parts were ideas that we came up with in the studio once recording began. The film ‘Trainspotting’, which we had been watching whilst on a writing weekend in Daylesford, lyrically inspires the song.”
