Acts Of Man

I am that dickhead in the kitchen
Giving wine to your best girl’s glass
I am the amateur pornographer
Unpleasant publisher by hand
Not here, not here
Heroic acts of man
See the stumbling pinstripe trouser
The flecks of sick on an office shoe
Part of the fatty British average
That lives in the houses around you
Not here, not here
Heroic acts of man
Letís all crowd round the cowering body
Throw stocky fingers, sticks and stones
Letís promise every girl we marry
Weíll always love them, though we probably wonít
While a knight in shitty armour
Rips a drunk out of her dress
One man tears into another
Hides a cowardís heart in a lionís chest
Man, he breeds although he shouldnít
Breeding just because he comes
Acts the father for a minute
Until the worst instincts return
Not here, not here
Heroic acts of man
I have never wanted more to be your man
And build a house around you
But I am just like all the rest of them
Sorry, selfish, trying to improve
Iím here, Iím here
Not heroic but I try
