What is SOH? Are those initials? What do they stand for? Please tell us everything you know about the song, such as what album it appears on. Please give the exact spelling if you can.

OK, I found this on Spotify. (I might have found it sooner if I hadn't been mystified by "SOH.")

Here's what I think I hear. (I can't say I understand anything, though; the most I can say is: it seems to be about scratch-off lottery tickets.)


SCRATCH
As sung by Show of Hands on "Witness" (2006)

The learning curve of love so steep
We climb too high and die too deep
In my dark and troubled sleep
You've only been away one week
The rope of memory still attached
A weary rub(?) you need to scratch
Hey—

This beautiful and hollow scheme
The less you have the more you dream
Of ways to make the future bright
Win some money and make it right
Maybe a fortune in the next batch
Oh, forget it all for an instant and scratch

Tear me off another patch
I need to itch; I need to—
Watch the A list, mix and match
The B list eating bugs for cash
Trish is [or "Tricia's"?] baiting C list trash
We all slow down to watch the crash
We left our lives upon the latch
Forget it all for an instant and scratch
Scratch
Ooh-hoo

A couple of lines wrong in verse 1:

We climbed too high and dived too deep

And where it rubs you need to scratch

Thanks for assistance - I will go with 'Trish is baiting C list trash', slightly annoying not to understand the reference.

Hi Fyldeplayer,

It may be "Trisha's baiting" as there is a Trisha Goddard who is a chat show presenter
