Bring on the naps I’m out flat in the gaps Snooze in the interludes Bring on the naps Make time for the kips Kip in the dips Eyes closed, nice doze Give it up for the kips What did I miss? Oh nothing While I was gone Oh nothing I come back like a different person I’m not trying to sell you something The one I most enjoyed I fell asleep to avoid The heat of the afternoon On holiday with my boy We both slept like babies Maybe me more than he Out together for an hour or so Woke up feeling free What did we miss? Oh nothing While we were gone Oh nothing We came back like different people I’m not trying to sell you something Is someone trying to tell me something? So bring on the naps At your mum and dad’s When I’m home or I’m playing shows I am the king of the naps Siestas for me And yes I’m counting the sheep Disco naps in the back, Jack Daytime sleep What did I miss? Oh nothing While I was gone? Oh nothing What did I miss? Oh nothing What’s going on? Oh nothing I come back like a different person I’m not trying to sell you something Is someone trying to tell me something?

My brother, the racist will die and I won’t know when Guess I’ll find out later, I can hold on till then I don’t wish he was dead but he can never be my friend That won’t change Our fathers failed us, each their own special way Feels strange to say it even though I know it’s ok I think I made my peace with that, but who can say? I don’t know now My brother, the racist, he didn’t get there by himself Hatred is always passed on by someone else And if I kept him close that might have helped I’ll never know But I don’t want to hold on, I don’t want to hold on to that Who would want to hold on, who would want to hold on to that? My brother, the racist, I think he’s still just a little kid I’m only trying to make excuses for what he did I don’t wish him dead but I don’t mind now if he is Maybe he is My brother, the racist will die and I won’t know when Guess I’ll find out later, I can hold on till then I don’t wish he was dead but he can never be my friend That won’t change I don’t want to hold on, I don’t want to hold on to that Who would want to hold on, who would want to hold on to that? I can’t negotiate with that, with all the empathy I lack Even though I know where it comes from, I don’t want to hold on to that
