Lyrics

On the day that your mentality catches up with your biology I want the one I can't have and it's driving me mad it's written all over my face

(repeat)

A double-bed and a stalwart lover, for sure these are the riches of the poor

A double-bed And a stalwart lover, for sure These are the riches of the poor

(refrain)

A tough kid who sometimes swallows nails raised on Prisoner's Aid he killed a policeman when he was thirteen and somehow that really impressed me it's written all over my face

On the day that your mentality catches up with your biology

And if you ever need self-validation just meet me in the alley by the railway-station it's all over my face
