Cheating on a sports field Or fiddling company accounts Cash in hand for a covers band Who didn't need to play pop Is this art or crime? On the walls of this city Is this art or crime? Hot colours getting busy Is this art or crime? Chemicals on the concrete Is this art or crime? Recorded by CCTV Karaoke talent shows Revolving foes With dreams of grandeur and gold Lyric sheets not written to a beat Sold for currency gains Is this art or crime? On the walls of this city Is this art or crime? Hot colours getting busy Is this art or crime? When it's all about likes Is this art or crime? When money rules the mind What happened to this growing number Who expect to show and wonder Fast tracked to the top Recycled till the sales stop Is this art or crime? Is this art or crime? Is this art or crime? Is this art or crime? Is this the art of crime? Is this the art of crime? Is this the art of crime? Is this the art of crime? Is this art or crime? Is this art or crime? Is this art or crime? Is this art or crime? Is this the art of crime? Is this the art of crime? Is this the art of crime? Is this the art of crime?

Too many years of sitting around You should walk your dog or he'll get sad Starving yourself it doesn't work The burn on your legs until your knee jerks My lungs are on fire My mind gives up I'd rather cover this land In a monster truck The pressure is on to the finish line Hills and rivers affect my time This is not one for the record books But for life and death and all good looks I'm getting really bored for the hundredth time People stare from their cars at the hill climb Fight Till you close your eyes Run Till you ruin your thighs Live Till you see the light That's life That's life Fight Till you close your eyes Run Till you ruin your thighs Live Till you see the light That's life That's life Every addiction of the positive kind Alternative thighs for a healthy mind Endorphin's flow right to my brain Eat like the man who ate for fame Weight goes on and off and Off and on Tabs and protein powder Help you run-on Water and electrics Bring out the crowd From viral markets On the internet cloud Chips and connections store the data Distance, speed and time Fight Till you close your eyes Run Till you ruin your thighs Live Till you see the light That's life That's life Fight Till you close your eyes Run Till you ruin your thighs Live Till you see the light That's life That's life

A new alternative comedian A failed radio star Edinburgh is calling The educated fill the bars From students to old timers Where the world ends Standing up for glory Reputation always on the mend It's you against the world Laughing at our souls It's you against the world Laughing at our souls It's you against the world Laughing at our souls It's you against the world Laughing at our souls Offence is OK When everyone's in your sights Street plays on summer days Everyone seems alright One to one thousand Who knows what we'll get tonight A TV face adds numbers Unknowns add a surprise delight It's you against the world Laughing at our souls It's you against the world Laughing at our souls It's you against the world Laughing at our souls It's you against the world Laughing at our souls His dark materials Ban him from the stage Nobody laughs When there's morals to pay There's always Mr Kay Who likes scones and tax returns Misunderstood genius Never seen past the norms It's you against the world Laughing at our souls It's you against the world Laughing at our souls It's you against the world Laughing at our souls It's you against the world Laughing at our souls

I've been around a fair bit Seen poverty and greed We have the resources To make the former leave From Blackpool Beach To Tenerife The Brits Come out to play Beggars on the train line Tourist tax machine time Beggars on the train line Tourist tax machine time Invisible lines Different lives Drawn by people Like you and I It's the same All around the world Rather praise the rich Than help the poor How can people be so different Only a few miles apart Things that appeal to everyone Is that really art? Familiar buildings with big lights With chain stores underneath New shanties and no schools In the land of hopes and dreams Don't lose your vision Your style Your fire Your people Your vision Your style Your fire Your people Your vision Your style Your fire Your people Your vision Your style Your fire Your people Beggars on the train line Tourist tax machine time Beggars on the train line Tourist tax machine time Invisible lines Different lives Drawn by people Like you and I It's the same All around the world Rather praise the rich Than help the poor In flight magazines Are all that they seem You can't travel anywhere Without a new thing A nation state inspires the wanting Across a waking world With imaginative infomercials Where all have little wrongs Beggars on the train line Tourist tax machine time Beggars on the train line Tourist tax machine time Invisible lines Different lives Drawn by people Like you and I It's the same All around the world Rather praise the rich Than help the poor

I'm just a sober backwoods poet On a Bükfürdő slide My Dog is eating Roshni Bees use coupons on their hive Red belly, yellow necks Barbecuing household objects Babies climbing trees while their Mums buy hockey helmets Pigeons break-dance as the Lion laughs at them He's thinking of the time he did cheese experiments Brushing your teeth in a department store Selling maps to jazz clubs on the kitchen floor Oooooohhhhhh Aaaaaahhhhhh Oooooohhhhhh Aaaaaahhhhhh Oooooohhhhhh Aaaaaahhhhhh Oooooohhhhhh Aaaaaahhhhhh I don't know what the man says He runs around with a chicken on his head I don't really know how to sing the blues With sunglasses on and a can of vodka mule
