  • If I want to sit in and drink super tennants in the day I will,

  • No-ones going to fucking tell me jack, But can you rely on anyone in this world?

  • No you cant; its not my fault theres wall to wall empty cans

  • Everyone wanted this to all go wrong for me from the start,

  • Its fucked up that a mans life can just be attacked,

  • Watching this morning with a beer is much better relying on,

  • Unknown cunts for mates i was given that don't have my back.

  • Scott texted me to say he'd have a look at the TV for me,

  • But i layed it down telling him to fuck right off chap.

  • Phoned this company out the yellow pages; Told them to take away the TV and fix it quick snap.

  • The next day they took away the TV and told

  • me they'd repair the little bit, Thats broken round on the back.

  • I thought that would be that but the next bit was on top,

  • This was where it all started to get a bit out of hand.

  • No-one gives a crap about Mike; Thats why i'm acting nasty.

  • You know what you can do with your life; Introduce it up your jacksie.

  • Coz No-one gives a crap about Mike; Thats why i'm acting nasty.

  • You know what you can do with your life; Introduce it up your jacksie.

  • The TV man comes back later, knocks on mine, To say he's found something in the back of the TV,

  • I'm looking at it absolutely speechless,

  • Cant quite believe he's trying to pull this fucking stunt on me.

  • I knew it was a simple case of the power supply gone on the back,

  • But he's trying to tap me up for more money. He says its not like that and im like fuck

  • off and die, And stick up my two fingers and one more to make three.

  • He says dont talk to me like that, and i don't understand,

  • My face is in his face and i tell him i understand perfectly.

  • And he grabs my shirt and i grab his face

  • with my hand, So he brings his fist up and twats me a good

  • one on my cheek. Now im trying to pull his head down so i can

  • knee it, But he's got my ear; he's twisting it round

  • so much that its really hurting me. And we both go down on the floor, and he pushes

  • my head back; Onto the corner of the fridge which is total

  • agony. Then he gets up and runs out the kitchen,

  • and out of the door, Shouting stuff to me, slams the door shoutin'

  • at me. So here i am in my house, drinking on my own settee;

  • Everyones a cunt in this life, no-one's there for me.

  • No-one gives a crap about Mike; Thats why i'm acting nasty.

  • You know what you can do with your life; Introduce it up your jacksie.

  • Coz No-one gives a crap about Mike; Thats why i'm acting nasty.

  • You know what you can do with your life; Introduce it up your jacksie.

  • If I want to sit in and drink super tennants in the day I will,

  • No-ones going to fucking tell me jack, But can you rely on anyone in this world?

  • No you cant; its all my fault theres wall to wall empty cans.

  • I sat in the kitchen all fucked off, Imagining over and over what they're all doing

  • behind my back. Dodgy things going on, actions i regretted,

  • Stain bottle with a pipe and tin foil on the matt.

  • Scott texted me telling me he'll have a look at the TV for me,

  • And I Felt like just telling him to fuck right off chap.

  • But what he said about wanting to do the right thing by both mates,

  • And then opting to stay out - it seemed to match.

  • But i's told him he could make it up by fixing the TV,

  • He said thats the least he could do to square things flat.

  • I thought that would be that but then the next bit was mad,

  • This is where everything started to all turn back.

  • The end of the something i did not want to end,

  • Begining of hard times to come. But something that was not meant to be is done

  • And this is the start of what was.

  • He had to unscrew about fifteen screws before he could pull the panel off the back,

  • To get in the fecking thing; But just as he did so, he said he saw something,

  • That slipped inside behind the panel - down the back of it.

  • Must have been some leaflets or a bill maybe, I didn't want to lose the bill incase it was

  • a final warning. So we both treid to get the back off and work

  • out if there was any more screws to get out, Or if we left any in.

  • And when he looked down the back of the TV, his eyes just froze,

  • Before he rammed his hand in saying, no shit. He's looking at me absolutely speechless,

  • he can't quite believe what hes trying to pull out the slip.

  • I get up wondering what he's smiling about, he's shaking his head at this point,

  • With the biggest of grins; I look down the back of the TV and thats where

  • it was, in all its glory - my thousand quid.

  • The end of the something i did not want to end,

  • Begining of hard times to come. But something that was not meant to be is done,

  • And this is the start of what was.

  • About 2 this afternoon the last of the people left my house,

  • Coz they never stop chattin' til all the rackets gone.

  • I really feel like things clicked into place at some point,

  • Or maybe its the fact that me and Alison really got on.

  • Or maybe its that i realised that it is true; No-ones really there fighting for you in the

  • last garison. No-one except yourself that is, no-one except

  • you. You are the one who's got your back 'til the

  • last deeds done. Scott can't have my back til the absolute

  • end, Coz hes got to look out for what over his

  • horizon. He's gotta to make sure he's not lonely, not broke.

  • It's enough to worry about keeping his own

  • head above. I shut the door behind me, huddled up in my coat,

  • Condensation floating off my breath, squinted out the sun.

  • My jeans feel a bit tight, think i washed them a bit too high;

  • I was gonna be late, so i picked up my pace to run.

  • The end of the something i did not want to end,

  • Begining of hard times to come. But something that was not meant to be is done,

  • And this is the start of what was.

  • The end of the something i did not want to end,

  • Begining of hard times to come. But something that was not meant to be is done,

  • And this is the start of what was.

  • It's the end of the something i did not want to end,

  • Begining of hard times to come. But something that was not meant to be is done,

  • And this is the start of what was.

  • It's the end of the something i did not want to end,

  • Begining of hard times to come. But something that was not meant to be is done,

  • And this is the start of what was.

If I want to sit in and drink super tennants in the day I will,
