Smile, she said, and if you want I'll look the other way Until you regain your melancholy disposition Or until you get over yourself You're such a European SOB Could you exist without your irony? I guess that you're afraid to alone or be alive Or be a boy without a girl Monday morning feeling alright What's wrong with this picture?
Nothing at all Open your eyes, there's nothing but blue skies What's wrong with this picture? Nothing at all Could you believe in anything? Could I believe in you? Smile, she said, and if you want I'll look the other way And you can go back to your Five Leaves Left And you can call me when you get over yourself Monday morning feeling alright What's wrong with this picture?
Man on the verge Waiting for the kiss of life seemingly lost without a TV Guide Boyish 37 Sorely uninspired Single melancholy male Owning up to loneliness is no big deal Everything is gone tomorrow miss you much Man on the verge Of the nerve For "Hello, I love your shirt" Could it hurt?
Man on the verge Man on the verge Mouthing the words And the air between them Could it hurt? Man on the verge. Look at the world through a rose tint lens I get mine from a poison pen I've got a negative attitude And I don't mind You want to paint the renaissance fair I want to try to relate to your colourful hair Is that a negative attitude?
Why be content with the sky when there's higher to go? Get off the floor Help your self to some more Because it's free to be you And it's free to be me and I know Look at the girl on the bad hair day Look very close, I think I like what she's trying to say She's got a negative attitude Why be content with the sky when there's higher to go? Get off the floor You can dance if you're bored Because it's free to be you And it's free to be me and I know I heard it on my radio You want to sleep in an Ono sack We want to live in a prefab shack in New Hampshire We've got a negative attitude Why be content with the sky when there's higher to go?
Get off the floor Help your self to some more Because it's free to be you And it's free to be groovy, I know I heard it on my radio. Too much music Too many bars Too much traffic Too much art Too much information Too many jams Too much zen Too much medication Too much of everything Too many stations Too many waves Too many sponsors Too much to save Too much much demographics Too many lists Too much entertainment To much ink Too much of everything Too much progress Too much space Too many futures Too much to case Too much analysis Too many pills I'm in rehabilitation I've taken too much Too much of everything.
I tried to rock I tried to rock And still I tried to rock I did not try to fail I did not fail to see That what it takes to rock Is that which I have not I didn't try for such a long time I didn't try so very hard Maybe I could have been more focussed You see, I wanted to be blind I tried to rock I grew my hair My walls were bare I had one red wine glass It was self fulfilling I had four girlfriends No visible means of support I lived on credit card rye bread And maybe I should have tried in Memphis Maybe I should have stayed home Maybe I should have taken a little something You know, I wasn't even stoned When I tried to rock And if you think I let you down And if I called you babe I didn't mean to say that you were just a babe Babe, you're such a babe I lay down here I woke up over there I lay me down somewhere else I guess I needed to try on something new I tried to no avail I guess I'm glad I failed.
Even though the skies are blue Don't they let the sun shine through? Because he is a jerk, I guess Does that mean he loves you less? Could you forgive that boy? Could you find some part of your aching heart To forgive that boy? Could you take him home? Could you hold him in your arms Until the morning comes?
When he's all cried out Could you be that girl? And what if it were you who fell Would he have you go to hell? Because he is a man, it's true Well, wasn't she a woman too? Build the following even more - gigs get longer because of the number of local punk bands playing support. May '79 - the Tories sweep into power.
We sweep into York to play above the Tory offices - Bondage and Ball gowns the order of the day. Through the rest of the year we are everyone's favourite benefit band, playing Bradford, Leeds, Burnley, Keighley, Halifax, Colne and a great gig in Ilkley - Punk hotbed of the horsey set!
Everyone is guaranteed a great night out whenever 'The Negs' appear in town. No real politics, no sloganeering, no posturing, no ego; just a bloody good laugh because we know we won't change the world, but we can enjoy ourselves as the world changes around us.
Support to 'Aswad' during the summer at open air RAR gig which gets stopped by the Police after violence erupts following a fight onstage. Support local band 'Red Eye' at 'Bradford University'. Police visit again because of damage caused to the van. Getting a bit of a reputation Sweaty nights in the old 'Vaults Bar' again gone where we stuffed - into a space for This one won't get lost not yet anyway.

Christmas gig booked for the 'Palm Cove Club', the local Reggae venue with great curries. Single pressed and ready to go on sale the day after at the 'Guy Watson' shop in Bradford. Next day, 'Watson's' besieged by the whole Punk population of Bradford and all singles sold!
