one two three four got a body in my soul got my tongue tied in a fantasy untold had a freudian slip out of context yes i know your name i wasn't thinking; temporarily insane had a freudian slip i was waiting for the last dance.

settle down watch this space if i had nobody then then i have nobody now i had no heart to say it to your face if i had some guts to spare well i'm gutted now all my words are sucked right into space if i had a chance to change well i had some room for doubt i saw the signs from interstellar space if it was so obvious why do i feel so down? put it in a bottle and throw it away wash into the ocean of a fading day for a moment (why'd you turn your back away?) i was undone (I was only trying to keep things) but in time (going not collapsing like a row of) I will be strong (dominos, dominos falling) falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling. dry those tears try to be brave still trying to comprehend what took place start again i wash my face if i made some bad mistakes then not again i love and hate you for all we've been through but i can't tell you right now maybe i never will and for a while we really ruled the land moments unique to us well wasn't it grand?

let me wish away the last five nights i was caught redhanded and i knew that this time i really blew it please take it all out on me baby don't hold back i know that i deserve it this time i can't excuse it i was wrong to lose it i seldom do it we were so right before how did it go so wrong? the only way i know to get away is putting on my headphones tired of the lies and all the whys (tired of the lies, the lies we told) don't pretend you didn't see it coming (in a way, we saw it coming) we fought and it was brewing (when it rained, it started pouring) fighting for the last words all the time (fighting for the last, the final word) screaming like two children in a courtyard (slinging insults like two schoolgirls) expletives really struck hard (seems we never ever will learn) i was wrong to lose it i seldom do it we were so right before how did it go so wrong? the only way i know to get away is putting on my headphones let me wish away the last five nights…

ba ba ba ba ba i'm getting bored of sitting around and doing nothing. i'm getting bored of sitting around and doing nothing. i'm getting bored of sitting around and doing nothing. i'm getting bored of sitting around and doing nothing. down downtown i'll meet you at the usual spot my baby down downtown we're gonna meet up and have a good time now!

thoughts flow like an ocean liner how do i gently let my feelings be known? (i don't wanna be the one to say it i don't wanna be the one to end it) i let it sit with me for weeks then suddenly decide today i'm letting go (i don't wanna say that it's not worth it and i don't want to stay so vitriolic) it makes me wanna laugh it makes me wanna cry it makes me wanna laugh it makes me wanna die inside. i break the news with sudden feeling an orchestra of silence fills the room (i don't wanna be the nasty bad guy i don't wanna be the super villain) she acts so calm as if she really didn't give a fuck… well maybe it's too soon. (i don't want to push the issue but i thought we warranted a tissue or two) it makes her want to laugh it makes her want to cry it makes her want to laugh it makes her want to die inside. we meet up for a cup of coffee for a couple of weeks but it's clear we're finished soon (i don't wanna look you in the eye again i don't wanna see you smiling anymore) it makes me wanna laugh it makes me wanna cry it makes me wanna laugh it makes me wanna die…

i was a little off my stride i was drinking to forget about my life and when you said "that's it, goodbye" i was reeling girl you caught me by surprise but all surprises end and then i see the truth a-staring at me from my friends and if i had another chance i would ditch this stupid girl before the romance i don't bare no grudge we're both to blame i bitch and then i sulk the night away i look into your eyes and i can see that we are no more. i was a little bit off-guard you spite me with your words and kicked my arse oh my god it's really over it's no dream i'm really sober if i had another chance then there would not be a romance i don't need no-one to tell me that there will be others to make sweeter music sweeter love and sweeter babies rocking tell me why why are you wasting your life on me? why are you wasting your life? why are you wasting your life on me? why are you wasting your life?

the night i went into shock was the night that you told me too much how was i to know what transpired would be an almighty headfuck? oh the time flies by so sickeningly and it's hard to keep up and your posture is so familiar.. I don't know how long it takes to get over the first hiccup over the first slip-up over the first disappointment. to get over the first shake down over the first breakdown over the first sign of trouble the night i went into shock was the night that it all went to rot. i turn around and it starts to snow i wander around this park alone just look how fast the leaves have changed still i feel i haven't aged and summer seems so long ago all the tunes on the radio well, they're not the same no they're not the same still i haven't changed.

tune in next time for the next chapter of the story we'll have explosions and arrests drama and intense fighting for you to see tune in next time we'll keep the audiences talking we'll have a special guest appear plot twists and a big love scene between the leads and when the story's told we'll all be old.

about

A musical break-up.

The debut album from OJ Law was completely written and recorded in a two-week explosion of music making.

Focusing solely on three instruments (keyboards, bass guitar, drum machine), the lofi, minimalist arrangements on Law focuses the attention of the listener to the songs themselves.
