You Never Wash Up After Yourself

I must get out once in a while
Everything’s starting to die
The dust settles, the worms dig
The spiders crawl over the bed

I must get out once in a while
I eat all day and now I’m fat
Yesterday’s meal is hugging the plates
You never wash up after yourself



Released: September 1994
Found on: My Iron Lung single and EP

A personal song finished in just one take, this track was one of the few releases in 1994-95 that John Leckie did not help to produce. Instead, it was done with Jim Warren at the band’s makeshift fruitfarm studio.
