Ten Sovereign. No dinner money
A fat kid goes in goal
I was always fascinated with monsters
There is no culture round here
Someone from this estate robbed my flat
You think you’re big, bruv. You’re not big
I bought her Sushi and she ate it with her hands
When I am in the sun I close my eyes
You learned. You moved on. You’re supposed to
You got strong from time spent on the ground
They asked me why I wanted a job and it seemed wrong
to say “money”
So I just said: “It’s something to do.”
