I stand on the platform The 9:21 is showing due At 9:29 Hypodermic Railway sleepers tell the time I move through the city In tubes of white And crimson blue (how 'bout you?) And left of the staircase A video's playing a dream at you Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining But still You know... It's not what I thought That success would look like I open a doorway And step into A marble hall (don't we all?) And follow the pathways Where cubicle melody does fall Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining But still You know... It's not what I thought That success would look like Not what I thought That it all would be like We stand in a barroom Pints of lager in our hands And soon on the platform We'll be playing a one night stand Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining But still You know... It's not what I thought That success would look like Not what what I thought That success would look like

I'm at a cafe on the Edgeware Road A cup of tea and a packet of smokes A notebook filled with bad poetry Mostly saying, "would you look at me" And you can take it from me It ain't easy Still at that cafe with that cup of tea I'd have another but it isn't free I light a tab and take in a drag My mind as empty as a tabloid rag And you can take it from me It ain't easy, brother Well I still remember The look in your eyes I had it coming This I don't deny Now I'm here To hang from the Tyburn Tree Right here To hang from the Tyburn Tree I don't expect that You would take my side It doesn't matter Guess I'm satisfied To be here And hang from the Tyburn Tree Right here To hang from the Tyburn Tree Walk to the station down the Edgeware Road The rain is starting and my bones feel old Picture a waitress pouring rivers of tea For punters always taking liberties And you can take it from me

Down the pub every Friday night Sue's a little nervous A little uptight She lost her money back in the crash Now she's getting by She's holding fast She couldn't tell you what she needs She can't see both sides of the question Doesn't know what she's after She can't see both sides, both sides Henry wears his yellow vest To remind him of a day When he felt his best He lost his lover, dead in the wars Now he's holding on Doesn't know what for He couldn't tell you what he needs He can't see both sides of the question Doesn't know what he's after He can't see both sides, both sides And her friends don't notice her edginess They're too wrapped up in their own lives And his colleagues think that he looks quite smart Can't see the pain in his eyes But when the band strikes up a tune, well A different feeling Moves over the room It seemed to me that for a little while They forgot themselves And nearly broke a smile He couldn't tell you what he needs They can't see both sides of the question She doesn't know what she's after They can't see both sides, both sides

"From past influences such as traditional folk, the Byrds, The Beatles, and the The Velvet Underground, to The Stooges, Crazy Horse, and even to noise bands such as High Rise and Les Rallizes Denudes, Divisionists' motto, "We Play Rock Music" encompasses them all.

Divisionists' sound is an all-inclusive one, serving up a smorgasbord of goodies, ranging from sunshine pop, to droney, Neil Young-ish dirges, with a side order of giant guitars along the way. New twists on centuries-old songs are the cherry on top of this dynamic rock band's offerings."
