'Messy Men' explores the deformation of love to hate in relationships.


Wash it go, over me and gone
Just in passing by watching you
Would you know?

Would you know the subtle stare from only where?

And just as far away as I can feel

How do we?

Would you know
 lovers forcing then

Barely even friends, 
barely ever friends

How can we make love to someone else

And then turn away, and then say, I hate your fucking guts?!

How do we turn away and say, I hate you now?!

One day I will run into your face

And to roundabout, turn away still in grief

I hope we will share smiles of a favourite friend
That we once had, because I feel, I feel this

Because we once shared the fire
, the fire that we shared

My favourite memory will always be

When we stood in the sand with our fingertips in the ground

It would've been the first time that I said that I want you

I said that I love


Still I’m struggling to see where that feeling arouse

Was it mine I create, or was it real sharing then?

Still I’ll try to forget the things that I said when I yell

I was following, yes I was following

My messy head

Still I’m following...

My messy head, my messy friend

It’s good at best, not the rest
