X-Ray Eyes 05:06
This is for all the people at studio 6 We’ve no thanks for contribution We’ve all reached the same conclusion We are bruised by the same delusion That anything makes a difference With these xray eyes I can see the deformity the pain from your perfect form With these xray eyes I can see the deformity the cry of pain from your perfect form With these xray eyes Never loose when you decide, to test another’s love and pride Purple penguin Red snapper The disciples Scilatchi Dillinger Massive dub beats Cool breeze Come on his me there Beatniks The wood shed Put in my hand We are convenience food Here to look over our brood We’re a Heinz 57 of Tension and derision

Youʼre the prism in my tunnel vision a voyeurist anueyrsm clean my teeth and I go to bed Still got your taste in my head on a cloud not alive or dead thinkin what i heard you said Heard Alcohol is a depressant But helps me with my aggression Heard Alcohol is a depressant But helps to ease my depression Tiny windows in this schism aliviate my lonely prism stolen glimpses from afar scared of knowing where you are in the streets or in the car 'specially when I play guitar

Supermodel 02:49
Wood u deface that supermodel could u deface that supermodel Keep her best arm keep her best eye take her friends lips put them in a pie when the pies baked will the birds sing or have you missed the point the point of everything Wood u deface that supermodel could u deface that supermodel Gettin our kicks from those wedding flix u ate then ran to trap one to b sick publicly shamed when u claimed to be maimed some of the powder on your face musta gone to your brain Iʼd like a decent share out of the cake and average hour of what average people make not Mary Shellys monster with only one solution I need time to think about my new years resolution Wood u deface that supermodel could u deface that supermodel

Logical Mind 05:29
Your a kite youʼre a pretty thing I struggle so hard to hold the string someday Iʼll know when I canʼt say Iʼll loose my grip and youʼll fl y away I wish I had a logical mind Youʼre a buzz youʼre a temptation my mind is beyond redemption someday I know when I canʼt say one slip and youʼll fl y away Iʼve so much to loose but so many would be in my shoes such a risk a high price to pay but you donʼt come along everyday

about

The Scratch's 2003 Debut album remastered and re-released.

Referencing the sounds and spirit of DIY punk and early British alternative and even a dollop of the pre-acid house Manchester vibes while maintaining a common edge throughout, the album sold out when originally released back in 2003 and due to demand from newer fans the timing felt right to re-issue ‘DIY’ and make it available for download for the first time.
