Track Name: King Of The Holloway Road
I just got paid. I'm the king again.
Going to pay my friends back. Mum and dad back.
MMMM that's a relief.
Up and down. You know I'm always up and down.
Nothing can stop me now.
I'm King of the Holloway Road.
King of the Holloway Road.
Lets go out tonight.
Take me out tonight.
You don't have to worry it's on me, this time.
I'm a gigantic eyeball blinking side to side.
But it's worse when I sit with a drink by the old cinema
Watching passers by
Nobody knows the trouble I've seen.
I don't know the trouble I've seen.
I'm King of the Holloway Road.
King of the Holloway Road.
Lets go out tonight.
Take me out tonight.
You don't have to worry it's on me, this time.
Behind dark glasses nobody knows my passion for obscure contemporary music.
Obscure contemporary music and couture latex design.
Nobody know's I'm
I'm King of the Holloway Road.
King of the Holloway Road.
(full length leather jacket, three pound prawn crackers, don't stop me now I'm magic)
Lets go out tonight.
Take me out tonight.
You don't have to worry it's on me, this time.
Track Name: No Sign
She didn't come back for days and we noticed.
She wasn't there.
Looked in her room.
No sign of her.
We were meant to meet up.
I thought by now she'd have shown up.
I am curious I want to know.
Where has she been. Where did she go?
I am looking high I am looking low.
But I see no sign. no sign. no sign of her.
Smuggling drugs in her long blonde hair is she
Troubling devout young men?
Young men at prayer.
She must be somewhere. She must be somewhere
We were meant to meet up.
I thought by now she'd have shown up.
I am curious I want to know.
Where has she been. Where did she go?
I am looking high I am looking low.
But I see no sign. no sign. no sign of her.
No sign. No sign.\
Track Name: Dream Of You
I imagine you now with your soap in shells.
Your shoes shiny and how you would smell.
Your shoulders.
Oh god. You look so well.
You look so well.
You look so well.
I bought alot of books and I stripped my floor.
Tried out a number of new looks. I don't know what for.
Cos I know you won't be coming round anymore.
I know you won't be coming round anymore.
I see you again I'm with my new boyfriend.
At a party on the weekend.
And I don't want to but I do. Know exactly where you are in the room.
And who you're talking to.
No no no I don't want to dream of you and of all that.
Dream of you and of all that.
Track Name: Sat Nav (Tom Tom Mix)
After the A road. Go straight over three roundabouts.
At the next the town will be signed left. It's best if you go right.
Past the train
Station. Keep going.
Another right at the lights.
Then it's the first turn there's a building site.
With pictures of old people. It's for a retirement village.
Pictures of old people on the side.
You follow it round.
You get to the train tracks.
Satellite, Satellite, Satellite Navigation
A phone connects you to a controller who will ask.
How long you need to cross. You might have to
Wait.
You've got to close the gates.
Drive past the boat yard.
We're just down the track.
Down the bottom of the track.
