One for the Road – Arctic Monkeys

One for the road, ooh ooh
One for the road, ooh ooh

From the bottom of your heart
The relegation zone
I saw this coming from the start
The shake, rattle and roll
The cracks in blackout blinds
Cast patterns on the ceiling but you’re feeling fine
I thought it was dark outside
I thought it was dark outside

So we all go back to yours and you sit and talk to me on the floor
There’s no need to show me round baby, I feel like I’ve been in here before
I’ve been wondering whether later when you tell everybody to go,
Will you pour me one for the road?

I knew this would be on the cards
I knew you wouldn’t fold
I saw this coming from the start
The shake, rattle and roll

One for the road, ooh ooh

So we all go back to yours and you sit and talk to me on the floor
There’s no need to show me round baby, I feel like I’ve been in here before
I’ve been wondering whether later when you tell everybody to go,
Will you pour me one for the road?

The mixture hits you hard
Don’t get that sinking feeling, don’t fall apart
Some out of tune guitar
Soundtrack to disaster

Ooh ooh, one for the road
Ooh ooh, one for the road
Ooh ooh, one for the road
Ooh ooh, one for the road

So we all go back to yours and you sit and talk to me on the floor
There’s no need to show me round baby, I feel like I’ve been in here before
I’ve been wondering whether later when you tell everybody to go,
Will you pour me one for the road?

Plastic Tramp – Arctic Monkeys

He looks as if he hasnt slept, his hair is purposely unkept
And then he knew his people wept, when you crafted your plan
The shadows underneath the eyes, and everywhere the bastard lies
My lack of Proof is your disguise, you won’t remember me
There’s nothing really I can say, but sorry mate and walk away
I could be wrong unless you play your game,
This world is cruel and most unkind
And horrible is redefined, I can’t imagine that you’d mind at all

You’re lying again, you’re conscious ain’t your friend
And the only thing your sobbing out is your imagination,
Lying again you’re conscious ain’t your friend and the only thing your sobbing out is your imagination
Is he really on the street, desperation on deceit and what he’s wearing on his feet won’t solve our mystery,

And I am baffled by how you stand there, soaking it in
And do you hide your identity where you hide your grin, better hide your grin

Shadows underneath the eyes, everywhere the bastard lies
My lack of Proof is your disguise, you won’t remember me

There’s nothing really I can say, but sorry mate and walk away
I could be wrong unless you play your game,
This world is cruel and is most unkind
And horrible is redefined, I can’t imagine that you’d mind at all
You’re lying again, your conscious ain’t your friend
And the only thing your sobbing out is your imagination,
Lying again your conscious ain’t your friend and the only thing your sobbing out is your imagination

Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secured – Arctic Monkeys

Ask if we can have six in, if not we’ll have to have 2
You’re coming up our end aren’t you? So I’ll get one with you
Oh won’t he let us have six in? especially not with the food
He coulda just told us no though, he dint have to be rude

You see her in the green dress? She talked to me at the bar
How come its already two pound fifty? We’ve only gone about a yard
Dint ya see she were gorgeous, she was beyond belief
But this lad at the side drinking a Smirnoff ice came and paid for her tropical Reef

And I’m sitting going backwards, and I didn’t want to leave
I said, “It’s High Green mate, via Hillsborough please!”

Well how funny was that sketch earlier, up near that taxi rank
Oh no you will have missed it, think it was when you went to the bank
These two lads squaring up proper shoutin’, ’bout who was next in the queue
The kind of thing that would seem so silly but not when they’ve both had a few

Well calm down temper temper, you shouldn’t get so annoyed
You’re acting like a silly little boy
They wanted to be men and do some fighting in the street
He said no surrender, no chance of retreat

And so why are we in a taxi?
‘Cause I didn’t want to leave
I said “It’s High Green Mate, via Hillsborough please!”

Drunken plots hatched to jump it, ask around are ya sure?
Went for it but the red light was showing
And the red light indicates doors are secured

The View from the Afternoon – Arctic Monkeys

Anticipation has the habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there’ll be some love
Tonight there’ll be a rawkus, regardless of what’s gone before
I want to see all of the things that we’ve already seen
The lairy girls hung out the window of the limousine
And of course its fancy dress
And they’re all looking quite full on
In bunny ears and devil horns

I want to see all of the things that we’ve already seen
I want to see you take the jackpot out the fruit machine
And put it all back in
You’ve got to understand it you can never beat the bandit

And she won’t be surprised and she won’t be shocked
When she’s pressed the star after she’s pressed unlock
And there’s verse and chapter sat in her inbox
And all that it says is that you’ve drank a lot
You should bear that in mind tonight
You can pour your heart out but her reasoning will block
owt you send her after nine o clock

You can pour your heart out around 3 o clock
When the 2 for 1’s undone the writers block
