"Documented Minor Emotional Breakdown #1" as written by and Thomas Edward Bromley Gareth David Paisey....
Ooooh, ahhhh

I restored your mother's faith in men whilst boring you to death
Left nothing more than the circle of stubble rash around your chest
My life was saved by a packet of nineteen cigarettes
Carried in my left breast pocket, for a closest friend
A sleeping bag on the floor twists hips like buffalo horns
They said, "that boy's too lazy", you were clearly forewarned
A jealous ex silenced the room
(Shhhhh)
He said that you were a whore;
"Do you kiss your mummy's lips with that mouth?".

Ooooh, ahhhh

She imagined everything I said in falsetto;
The only way to justify my childish despair
I spent my last six fifty in a public phone box,
(Graffited genitalia from the ceiling to the floor)
Play reckless, rapid like a fruit machine.
I see gargoyles in the floral of the duvet cover,
You see melodrama move from one sentence to the other.
Many years practice of speaking in hushed tones

    "She imagined everything I said in falsetto
    The only way to justify my childish despair
    I spent my last six fifty in a public phone box
    Graffited genitalia from the ceiling to floor
    Played the reckless, rapid like a fruit machine
    I see gargoyles in the floral of the duvet cover
    You see melodrama move from one sentence to the other
    And many years practice of speaking in hushed tones"

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who was cheated on. Their girlfriend got bored with them even though he was apparently a nice boy that the girl's mother liked. Then the song goes on to catalogue the "childish despair" of the boy as he reels from the hit, and does childish things like graffiting penises and such.
