harrycw Some really funny and catchy lyrics here, set to raw angular music. Some soothing instrumentals as well. Favorite track: Don't Be That Dude.

Steve Lawson Having had a sneak preview of this, I bought it anyway. Cos music this great deserves supporting - get it, and buy the debut album while you're at it. Everything they do is magic. Ally's songwriting, guitaring and singing are all world class.

Track Name: Couldn't Tell You
I couldn't tell you if I were dead or alive
I couldn't tell you if I were Derek or Clive
I couldn't tell you if I were happy or sad
I wouldn't know if this song is good or it's bad

I'd be a liar
I'd be a liar
I'd be a liar

I couldn't tell you if I'm a boy or a girl
I'm out of focus, I have lost track of the world
I can't remember what I was trying to say...

I'd be a liar
I'd be a liar
I'd be a liar...
Track Name: Lee Miller
A flash, a kiss
Your lip and his
A home

An eye, a line
To keep the time
Alone

A clash, a note
A slash, a throat
The red

A Man, a Ray
A girl afraid
The dead

You never told your son what you did in the war
He had to find out from all these boxes you kept hidden in the attic
In the attic
In the attic
In the attic
In the attic...

A flash, a kiss
Your lip and his
A home

An eye, a line
To keep the time
Alone

A clash, a note
A slash, a throat
The red

A Man, a Ray
A girl afraid
The dead
The dead
The dead
The dead...
Track Name: Naamloos

Track Name: Don't Be That Dude
You see her on the bus
I guarantee it
You haven't escaped her attention

Not in the way you'd like
We all can see it
She wants you just to leave her alone

Don't be that dude
Don't be that dude
She's not being rude
Don't be that dude

Don't be that dude
Don't be that dude
Don't let the message be misconstrued
Don't be that dude

She's got this t-shirt on
And it's emblazoned
With all these comic superheroes

So you're determined to
Interrogate her
Yes she must prove to you what she knows

Don't be that dude
Don't be that dude
She's not being rude
Don't be that dude

Don't be that dude
Don't be that dude
Don't let the message be misconstrued
Don't be that dude
