  • 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
    Not here, not here, heroic acts of man

    Oh I 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
    Not here, not here, heroic acts of man

    Let's all crowd round the cowering body
    Throw stocky fingers, sticks and stones
    Let's promise every girl we marry
    We'll always love them, though we probably won't

    While a knight in shitty armour
    Rips the drunk out of her dress
    One man tears into another
    Hides a coward's heart in a lion's chest

    Man, he breeds although he shouldn't
    Breeding just because he comes
    Acts the father for a minute
    Until the worst instincts return

    Not here, not here, heroic acts of man
    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

    I'm here, I'm here, not heroic but I try
    I'm here, I'm here, not heroic but I try Writer/s: ANDY MONAGHAN, DAVID WILLIAM LAWRENCE KENNEDY, GRANT DAVID HUTCHISON, RUSSELL GORDON SKENE, SCOTT JOHN HUTCHISON
