05 MEAN MAN

Waiting behind your desk
Having too many drinks
Ready to receive your guests
At least that’s what you think
And when someone arrives
You jump up from your chair
But the laugh that you laugh
Is a laugh that no-one shares

Sweat on your forehead
Dripping down
On empty sheets and pillows
As you make the round
You put two chocolate bars
On our unmade double bed
I wish you’d eaten them both
Yourself instead

Your best friend comes on over
To play a game
Looking like a Mexican

And it’s good to know where to stop
You don’t have to be sad
When your guests have gone
I’m sure you made secret videos
With all of us on

Such a mean man
Such a ...

Hope there’s no need to explain
We just had to get away
Riding a first-class train
Into the dawn of a new day
Can’t wait to see one of the greatest
Canyons in the world
But every guy on board
Just keeps staring at my girl

They’re such mean men
They’re such ...
