Track Name: Entertain A Friend
Sent a new set of updated ones
Probably fell in with the rest
If I'm working I'm working alone
Away from the real so apply it yourself

If talking is hard, let me go first
So I'll cover it all on the way
Adopting is easy on principle
I know, I do it all the time

I said, 'Entertain a new friend for me'
I used to just do it myself
But elected a system of enemies
And cut it all out for my health

Intend for me to see
The portion I'm working around
A letterhead addressed to me again I see

A second time on a second day
A moment I spent on myself
A token of what I'm meaning to say is informing
A public around.
