Fucking Ordinary

December came and the wind
Blew away my waves
I was pissed off
Nothing left to do but go insane
And play guitar all fucking day
Yeah, but that's okay
That's okay, I don't mind

But I don't know why
I'm not surfing now

But what was I supposed to do?
She had an operation
Changed her face
Changed the rules
Now I don't recognise her at all
Said she's been overseas
Yeah, in San Francisco
At least she's not
Not gonna be
So fucking ordinary

January, February
The wind has gone away
But it's so hot, so damn hot
They're saying it's El Nino
But all we know
Is that it's better than
What we had last year
Yeah, give me global warming

The last time I saw her
I was dreaming
Should've been paying more attention
To what was going on around me
Oh, how could I have been so stupid?

I rang, I lost
I think I saw it from a long way, far off
Can't go for second best now
But I'm not down and out again

But I still don't know why
I'm not surfing now

Yeah I guess it's all my fault
Yeah, it was my inaction
But she changed, changed herself
Now I don't recognise her at all
She said she's been overseas
Yeah, in San Francisco
At least she's not, not gonna be
So fucking ordinary
Like you

about

Mailbox Skipole New Zealand

Mailbox Skipole got their band name from their first microphone stand, which was in true KIWI style a DIY (Do it yourself) concoction of a mailbox with a skipole attached to it with GAFFA tape. True Story!

Mailbox Skipole was the brainchild of Mark Rawstron & Matthew Barnes.
