Bottom Line is the third single from Year 0 (my next album). It will be released on 9th December 2013.

It has been rattling around for a while and has finally found a place to rest.

Lyrics…

Nobody is perfect,
But shit rises up.
It builds a roof for all of us underneath the top.
Forget it in the background,
Let its goodness fall.
Levelling the prize down, to benefit us all.

What am I worth to you if I’m alive?
What am I worth to you?

Please sir, did I meet the bottom line or am I dispensable?
Did I meet the bottom line?
Did I tow your party line or was I reprehensible?
Did I tow the party line?

I got a call from daylight.
It seems I’m running late.
Just leave your brain inside the drawer over by the gate.

What am I worth to you if I’m alive?
What am I worth to you?

Please sir, did I meet the bottom line or am I dispensable?
Did I meet the bottom line?
Did I tow your party line or was I reprehensible?
Did I tow the party line?

I can see you up there in your big golden tower.
What you doing up there in your big golden tower?
Trying to reach God, trying to reach God.
What you doing up there in your big golden tower?
Hiding from God, hiding from God.

It is the only song that has ever come out in one go. It was what I can only describe as a case of ‘creative puke’, which exploded out of me in response to hearing a profoundly arrogant, ignorant and out of touch interview with Michael Gove a couple of years ago.
