about

"one more for the road". This shout-a-long closer says goodnight to the audience while inviting them for a little night cap. We wear our influences on our sleeve and this one definitly draws on Lou Reed, Joe Cocker and Bob Dylan.

lyrics

my best friend
don't come out no more
he's got a wife, a job and a sprog
now he's fucking boring

and I can't count
the times he's let me down
something just came up
buts next time surely
I won't be surprised or disappointed

here's that bit at the end of a dream
when you're losing it
don't let go of it
it's the key to the whole thing
there was something 'bout a swimming pool
or a hospital
ir was it my primary school
oh fuck it, it's gone

so draw down the curtain 'cause I'm almost certain
it's the end
gather your coat and your friends and head for the door
strangers acquaintances, new friends and enemies
a toast, before you go
raise your glass, raise your spirits, let's hear it
one more for the road

I only have two different moods
isolated and intoxicated
I know which I prefer
and I came here to lighten your booze
have a scotch or two
and a peak at you

so draw down the curtain 'cause I'm almost certain
it's the end
gather your coat and your friends and head for the door
strangers acquaintances, new friends and enemies
a toast, before you go
raise your glass, raise your spirits, let's hear it
one more for the road
