You

You are the sun and moon and stars are you,
and I could never run away from you.
You try at working out chaotic things,
and why should I believe myself not you?
It’s like the world is going to end so soon,
and why should I believe myself?

You me and everything caught in the fire,
I can see me drowning, caught in the fire.
You me and everything caught in the fire,
and I can see me drowning, caught in the fire.

Drill EP szöveg:

You are the sun and moon and stars, are you
And I could never run away from you
You try at working out chaotic things
And why should I believe myself, not you?
You say the world is going to end so soon
And why should I believe myself?
Hey, the sun and moon and stars are
Yeah, but I won’t share myself with you, you
To, me, ooh…

Creep

When you were here before,
couldn’t look you in the eye.
You’re just like an angel,
your skin makes me cry.
You float like a feather,
in a beautiful world
I wish I was special,
you’re so fucking special.

But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here.

I don’t care if it hurts,
I want to have control.
I want a perfect body,
I want a perfect soul.
I want you to notice,
when I’m not around.
You’re so fucking special,
I wish I was special.

But I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?.
I don’t belong here

She’s running out the door,
she’s running,
she run, run, run, run, run.

Whatever makes you happy,
whatever you want.
You’re so fucking special,
I wish I was special,

but I’m a creep, I’m a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here,
I don’t belong here.

How Do You?

He’s bitter and twisted, he knows what he wants.
He wants to be loved and he wants to belong.
He wants you to listen, he wants us to weep.
And he was a stupid baby who turned into a powerful freak.

But how do you?
How do you?
How do you?

He lives with his mother, but we show him respect.
He’s a dangerous bigot, but we always forget.
And he’s just like his daddy, ’cause he cheats on his friends.
And he steals and he bullies, any way that he can.

But how do you?
How do you?
How do you?

Stop Whispering

And the wise men say “I don’t want to hear your voice.”
And the thin men say “I don’t want to hear your voice.”
And they’re cursing me, and they won’t let me be.
And there’s nothing to say, and there’s nothing to do.

Stop whispering, start shouting,
stop whispering, start shouting.

And my mother say “We spit on your son some more.”
And the buildings say “We spit on your face some more.”
And the feeling is that there’s something wrong,
’cause I can’t find the words, and I can’t find the songs.

Stop whispering, start shouting,
stop whispering, start shouting.

Dear Sir, I have a complaint.
Dear Sir, I have a complaint,
can’t remember what it is,
doesn’t matter anyway.
Doesn’t matter anyway.

Thinking About You

Been thinking about you, your records are here,
your eyes are on my wall, your teeth are over there.
But I’m still no-one, and you’re now a star,
what do you care?

Been thinking about you, and there’s no rest,
shit I still love you, still see you in bed.
But I’m playing with myself, and what do you care
when the other men are far, far better.

All the things you’ve got,
all the things you need,
who bought you cigarettes,
Who bribed the company to come and see you honey?

I’ve been thinking about you, so how can you sleep?
These people aren’t your friends, they’re paid to kiss your feet.
They don’t know what I know and why should you care
when I’m not there.

Been thinking about you, and there’s no rest,
should I still love you, still see you in bed.
But I’m playing with myself, what do you care,
when I’m not there.

All the things you’ve got,
she’ll never need,
all the things you’ve got.
I’ve bled and I bleed to please you.

Been thinking about you.

Anyone Can Play Guitar

Destiny, destiny protect me from the world.
Destiny, hold my hand, protect me from the world.
Here we are with our running and confusion,
and I don’t see no confusion anywhere.

And if the world does turn and if London burns,
I’ll be standing on the beach with my guitar.
I want to be in a band when I get to heaven,
anyone can play guitar and they won’t be a nothing any more.

Grow my hair, grow my hair, I am Jim Morrison,
grow my hair, I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be Jim Morrison.
Here we are with our running and confusion,
and I don’t see no confusion anywhere.

And if the world does turn and if London burns,
I’ll be standing on the beach with my guitar.
I want to be in a band when I get to heaven,
anyone can play guitar and they won’t be a nothing any more.

Ripcord

Soul destroyed with clever toys for little boys.
It’s inevitable, inevitable, it’s a soul destroyed.
You’re free until you drop,
you’re free until you’ve had enough
and you don’t understand.
No ripcord, no ripcord,
no ripcord, no ripcord.

Aeroplane do I mean what I mean?
Oh it’s inevitable, inevitable, oh aeroplane.
A thousand miles an hour
on politics and power
that she don’t understand.
No ripcord, no ripcord,
no ripcord, no ripcord.

The answer to your prayers,
we’ll drop you anywhere.

No ripcord, no ripcord,
no ripcord, no no no no ripcord,
oh yeah.

Vegetable

I never wanted anything but this,
I worked hard, tried hard.
I ran around in domestic bliss,
I fought hard, died hard.

Everytime you’re running out of here,
everytime you’re running I get the fear.

I never wanted any broken bones,
scarred face, no home.
Your words surround me and I asphyxiate,
and I burn all hate.

Everytime you’re running out on me
everytime you’re running I can see.

I’m not a veg’table,
I will not control myself.
I spit on the hand that feeds me,
I will not control myself.

The waters break, the waters run all over me.
The waters break, the waters run
and this time you’re gonna pay.

I’m not a veg’table,
I will not control myself.
I spit on the hand that feeds me,
I will not control myself.

Prove Yourself

I can’t afford to breathe in this town,
nowhere to sit without a gun in my hand.
Hooked back up to the cathode ray,
I’m better off dead,
I’m better off dead,
I’m better off.

Prove yourself,
prove yourself,
prove yourself.

I want to breathe, I want to grow,
I’d say I want it but I don’t know how.
I work, I bleed, I beg, I pray,
but I’m better off dead,
I’m better off dead,
I’m better off.

Prove yourself,
prove yourself,
prove yourself.

I’m better off dead,
I’m better off dead,
I’m better off.

Prove yourself,
prove yourself,
prove yourself,
prove yourself.

I Can’t

Please forget the words that I just blurted out,
it wasn’t me, it was my strange and creeping doubt,
it keeps rattling my cage.
And there’s nothing in this world will keep it down,

and even though I might, even though I try, I can’t.
Even though I might, even though I try, I can’t.

Soon your things that keep, that keep me underground,
so many words that I, that I can never find.
If you give up on me now,
I’ll be gutted like I’ve never been before.

And even though I might, even though I try, I can’t
Even though I might, even though I try, I can’t

If you give up on me now,
I’ll be gutted like I’ve never been before.

And even though I might, even though I try, I can’t
Even though I might, even though I try, I can’t,
even though I might, even though I try, I can’t.
Even though I might, even though I try, I can’t.

Lurgee

I feel better, I feel better now you’ve gone.
I got better, I got better, I got strong.

I feel better, I feel better now there’s nothing wrong.
I got better, I got better, I got strong.

Tell me something, tell me something I don’t know.
Tell me one thing, tell me one thing, and let it go.

I got something, I got something, heaven knows.
I got something, I got something, I don’t know.

Blow Out

In my mind and nailed into my heels.
All the time killing what I feel.

And everything I touch
[All wrapped up in cotton wool]
[All wrapped up and sugar coated]
turns to stone.

And everything I touch
[All wrapped up in cotton wool]
[All wrapped up and sugar coated]
turns stone.

I am fused just in case I blow out.
I am glued just because I crack out.

Everything I touch turns to stone.
Everything I touch
[All wrapped up in cotton wool]
[All wrapped up and sugar coated]

Planet Telex

You can force it but it will not come
You can taste it but it will not form
You can crush it but it’s always here
You can crush it but it’s always near
Chasing you home saying
Everything is broken
Everyone is broken

You can force it but it will stay stung
You can crush it as dry as a bone
You can walk it home straight from school
You can kiss it, you can break all the rules
But still
Everything is broken
Everyone is broken

Everyone is, everyone is broken
Everyone is, everything is broken

Why can’t you forget?
Why can’t you forget?
Why can’t you forget?

The Bends

Where do we go from here
The words are coming out all weird
Where are you now, when I need you
Alone on an aeroplane
Fall asleep on against the window pane
My blood will thicken

I need to wash myself again to hide all the dirt and pain
Cos I’d be scared that there’s nothing underneath
But who are my real friends
Have they all got the bends
Am I really sinking this low

My baby’s got the bends, oh no
We don’t have any real friends, no, no, no

Just lying in the bar with my drip feed on
Talking to my girlfriend, waiting for something to happen
I wish it was the sixties, I wish I could be happy
I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen

Where do we go from here
The planet is a gunboat in a sea of fear
And where are you
They brought in the CIA, the tanks and the whole marines,
To blow me away, to blow me sky high

My baby’s got the bends
We don’t have any real friends

Just lying in the bar with my drip feed on
Talking to my girlfriend, waiting for something to happen
I wish it was the sixties, I wish I could be happy
I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen

I wanna live, breathe
I wanna be part of the human race
I wanna live, breathe
I wanna be part of the human race, race, race, race

Where do we go from here
The words are coming out all weird
Where are you now when I need you

High and Dry

Two jumps in a week,
I bet you think that’s pretty clever don’t you boy?
Flying on your motorcycle,
watching all the ground beneath you drop
You’d kill yourself for recognition,
kill yourself to never, ever stop
You broke another mirror,
you’re turning into something you are not

Don’t leave me high, don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high, don’t leave me dry

Drying up in conversation,
you’ll be the one who cannot talk
All your insides fall to pieces,
you just sit there wishing you could still make love
They’re the ones who’ll hate you
when you think you’ve got the world all sussed out
They’re the ones who’ll spit on you,
you’ll be the one screaming out

Don’t leave me high, don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high, don’t leave me dry

Oh, it’s the best thing that you ever had,
the best thing that you ever, ever had.
It’s the best thing that you ever had,
the best thing you have had has gone away.

Don’t leave me high, don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high, don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high,
Don’t leave me high, don’t leave me dry

Fake Plastic Trees

A green plastic watering can
For a fake chinese rubber plant
In the fake plastic earth

That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plans
To get rid of itself

It wears her out, it wears her out
It wears her out, it wears her out

She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns

He used to do surgery
On girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins

And it wears him out, it wears him out
It wears him out, it wears him out

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love

But I can’t help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run

And it wears me out, it wears me out
It wears me out, it wears me out

And if I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted
All the time, all the time

Top

Bones

I don’t want to be crippled and cracked
Shoulders, wrists, knees and back
Ground to dust and ash
Crawling on all fours

When you’ve got to feel it in your bones
When you’ve got to feel it in your bones

Now I can’t climb the stairs
Pieces missing everywhere
Prozac painkillers

When you’ve got to feel it in your bones
When you’ve got to feel it in your bones

And I used to fly like Peter Pan
All the children flew when I touched their hands

When you’ve got to feel it in your bones
When you’ve got to feel it in your bones

(nice dream)

They love me like I was a brother
They protect me, listen to me
They dug me my very own garden
Gave me sunshine, made me happy

Nice dream, nice dream
Nice dream

I call up my friend, the good angel
But she’s out with her answerphone
She says she would love to come help but
The sea would electrocute us all

Nice dream, nice dream
Nice dream, nice dream
Nice dream, nice dream
Nice dream

If you think that you’re strong enough
If you think you belong enough
If you think that you’re strong enough
If you think you belong enough

(Just as well Just as well Just as well)

Nice dream, nice dream
Nice dream, nice dream

Just

Can’t get the stink off
He’s been hanging round for days
Comes like a comet
Suckered you but not your friends
One day he’ll get to you
And teach you how to be a holy cow

You do it to yourself, you do
And that’s what really hurts
Is that you do it to yourself
Just you and no-one else
You do it to yourself
You do it to yourself

Don’t get my sympathy
Hanging out the 15th floor
You’ve changed the locks three times
He still comes reeling through the door
One day I’ll get you
And teach you how to get to purest hell

You do it to yourself, you do
And that’s what really hurts
Is that you do it to yourself
Just you, you and no-one else
You do it to yourself
You do it to yourself

You do it to yourself, you do
and that’s what really hurts
Is that you do it to yourself
Just you, you and no-one else
You do it to yourself
You do it to yourself, yourself, yourself.

My Iron Lung

Faith, you’re driving me away
You do it everyday
You don’t mean it
But it hurts like hell

My brain says I’m recieving pain
A lack of oxygen
From my life support
My iron lung

We’re too young to fall asleep
To cynical to speak
We are losing it
Can’t you tell?

We scratch our eternal itch
A twentieth century bitch
And we are grateful for
Our iron lung

The head shrinkers
They want everything
My uncle Bill
My Belisha beacon
The head shrinkers
They want everything
My uncle Bill
My Belisha beacon

Suck, suck your teenage thumb
Toilet trained and dumb
When the power runs out
We’ll just hum

This, this is our new song
Just like the last one
A total waste of time
My iron lung

The head shrinkers
They want everything
My uncle Bill
My Belisha beacon
The head shrinkers
They want everything
My uncle Bill
My Belisha beacon

And if you’re frightened
You can be frightened
You can be, it’s OK
And if you’re frightened
You can be frightened
You can be, it’s OK

The head shrinkers
They want everything
My uncle Bill
My Belisha beacon

Bulletproof.. I Wish I Was

Limb by limb, tooth by tooth
Tearing up inside of me
Every day, every hour
I wish that I was bullet proof

Wax me, mould me
Heat the pins and stab them in
You have turned me into this
Just wish that it was bullet proof,
was bullet proof

So pay the money and take a shot
Lead-fill the hole in me
I could burst a million bubbles
All surrogate and bullet proof
And bullet proof
And bullet proof
And bullet proof

Black Star

i get home from work and you’re still standing in your dressing gown
well what am i to do?
i know all the things around your head and what they do to you.
what are we coming to?
what are we gonna do?

blame it on the black star
blame it on the falling sky
blame it on the satellite that beams me home.

the troubled words of a troubled mind i try to understand what is eating you.
i try to stay awake but its 58hours since that i last slept with you.
what are we coming to?
i just don’t know anymore.

i get on the train and i just stand about now that i don’t think of you.
i keep falling over i keep passing out when i see a face like you.
what am i coming to?
i’m gonna melt down

Sulk

You bite through the big wall, the big wall bites back
You just sit there and sulk, sit there and bawl
You are so pretty when you’re on your knees
Disinfected, eager to please

Sometimes you sulk, sometimes you burn
God rest your soul
When the loving comes and we’ve already gone
Just like your dad, you’ll never change

Each time it comes it eats me alive
I try to behave but it eats me alive
So I declare a holiday
Fall asleep, Drift away

Sometimes you sulk, sometimes you burn
God rest your soul
When the loving comes and we’ve already gone
Just like your dad, you’ll never change

Sometimes you sulk, sometimes you burn
God rest your soul
When the loving comes and we’ve already gone
Just like your dad, You’ll never change

Street Spirit (Fade Out)

Rows of houses all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
All these things into position
All these things we’ll one day swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out

This machine will not communicate
These thoughts and the strain I am under
Be a world child, form a circle
Before we all go under
And fade out again and fade out again

Cracked eggs, dead birds
Scream as they fight for life
I can feel death, can see it’s beady eyes
All these things into position
All these things we’ll one day swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out again

Immerse your soul in love
Immerse your soul in love.

In the next world war
in a jack knifed juggernaut,
I am born again.

In the neon sign,
scrolling up and down,
I am born again.

In an interstellar burst,
I am back to save the universe.

In a deep deep sleep,
of the innocent,
I am born again.

In a fast German car,
I’m amazed that I survived,
an airbag saved my life.

In an interstellar burst,
I am back to save the universe.

In an interstellar burst,

Paranoid Android

Please could you stop the noise, I’m trying to get some rest
From all the unborn chicken voices in my head
What’s that…? (I may be paranoid, but not an android)
What’s that…? (I may be paranoid, but not an android)

When I am king, you will be first against the wall
With your opinion which is of no consequence at all
What’s that…? (I may be paranoid, but no android)
What’s that…? (I may be paranoid, but no android)

Ambition makes you look pretty ugly
Kicking and squealing gucci little piggy
You don’t remember
You don’t remember
Why don’t you remember my name?
Off with his head, man
Off with his head, man
Why don’t you remember my name?
I guess he does….

Rain down, rain down
Come on rain down on me
From a great height
From a great height… height…
Rain down, rain down
Come on rain down on me
From a great height
From a great height… height…
Rain down, rain down
Come on rain down on me

That’s it, sir
You’re leaving
The crackle of pigskin
The dust and the screaming
The yuppies networking
The panic, the vomit
The panic, the vomit
God loves his children, God loves his children, yeah!

Subterranean Homesick Alien

The breath of the morning
I keep forgetting.
The smell of the warm summer air.

I live in a town
where you can’t smell a thing,
you watch your feet
for cracks in the pavement.

Up above
aliens hover
making home movies
for the folks back home,

of all these weird creatures
who lock up their spirits,
drill holes in themselves
and live for their secrets.

They’re all uptight, uptight,
uptight, uptight,
uptight, uptight.

I wish that they’d sweep down in a country lane,
late at night when I’m driving.
Take me on board their beautiful ship,
show me the world as I’d love to see it.

I’d tell all my friends but they’d never believe me,
They’d think that I’d finally lost it completely.
I’d show them the stars and the meaning of life.
They’d shut me away.
But I’d be alright, alright,
I’d be alright,
I’m alright.

I’m just uptight, uptight,
uptight, uptight,
uptight, uptight,
uptight, uptight,
uptight.

Exit Music (For a Film)

Wake from your sleep,
the drying of your tears,
Today we escape, we escape.

Pack and get dressed
before your father hears us,
before all hell breaks loose.

Breathe, keep breathing,
don’t lose your nerve.
Breathe, keep breathing,
I can’t do this alone.

Sing us a song,
a song to keep us warm,
there’s such a chill, such a chill.

And you can laugh a spineless laugh,
we hope your rules and wisdom choke you.

And now we are one
in everlasting peace,

we hope that you choke, that you choke,
we hope that you choke, that you choke,
we hope that you choke, that you choke.

Let Down

Transport, motorways and tramlines,
starting and then stopping,
taking off and landing,
the emptiest of feelings,
disappointed people, clinging on to bottles,
and when it comes it’s so, so, disappointing.

Let down and hanging around,
crushed like a bug in the ground.
Let down and hanging around.

Shell smashed, juices flowing
wings twitch, legs are going,
don’t get sentimental, it always ends up drivel.
One day, I’m gonna grow wings,
a chemical reaction,
hysterical and useless
hysterical and

let down and hanging around,
crushed like a bug in the ground.
Let down and hanging around.

Let down,
Let down,
Let down.

You know, you know where you are with,
you know where you are with,
floor collapsing, falling, bouncing back
and one day, I’m gonna grow wings,
a chemical reaction, [You know where you are,]
hysterical and useless [you know where you are,]
hysterical and [you know where you are,]

let down and hanging around,
crushed like a bug in the ground.
Let down and hanging around.

Karma Police

Karma police
arrest this man,

and we have crashed her party.

This is what you get,

I’ve given all I can
but we’re still on the payroll.

This is what you get,

Electioneering

Climbing Up the Walls

I am the key to the lock in your house
That keeps your toys in the basement
And if you get too far inside
You’ll only see my reflection

It’s always best when the light is off
I am the pick in the ice
Do not cry out or hit the alarm
You know we’re friends till we die

And either way you turn
I’ll be there
Open up your skull
I’ll be there
Climbing up the walls

It’s always best when the light is off
It’s always better on the outside
Fifteen blows to the back of your head
Fifteen blows to your mind

So lock the kids up safe tonight
Put the eyes in the cupboard
I’ve got the smell of a local man
Who’s got the loneliest feeling

That either way he turns
I’ll be there
Open up your skull
I’ll be there

Climbing up the walls
Climbing up the walls
Climbing up the walls

No Surprises

A heart that’s full up like a landfill,
a job that slowly kills you,
bruises that won’t heal.
You look so tired-unhappy,
bring down the government,
they don’t, they don’t speak for us.
I’ll take a quiet life,
a handshake of carbon monoxide,

with no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
Silent silence.

This is my final fit,
my final bellyache,

with no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises please.

Such a pretty house
and such a pretty garden.

No alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises please.

Lucky

I’m on a roll,
I’m on a roll this time
I feel my luck could change.

Kill me Sarah,
kill me again with love,
it’s gonna be a glorious day.

Pull me out of the aircrash,
Pull me out of the lake,
I’m your superhero,
we are standing on the edge.

The head of state has called for me by name
but I don’t have time for him.
It’s gonna be a glorious day!
I feel my luck could change.

Pull me out of the aircrash,
Pull me out of the lake,
I’m your superhero,
we are standing on the edge.
We are standing on the edge.

The Tourist

It barks at no-one else but me,
like it’s seen a ghost.
I guess it’s seen the sparks a-flowin,
no-one else would know.

Hey man, slow down, slow down,
idiot, slow down, slow down.

Sometimes I get overcharged,
that’s when you see sparks.
They ask me where the hell I’m going?
At a 1000 feet per second,

hey man, slow down, slow down,
idiot, slow down, slow down.

Hey man, slow down, slow down,
idiot, slow down, slow down.

Flies are buzzing round my head
Vultures circling the dead
Picking up every last crumb
The big fish eat the little ones

Not my problem, give me some

You can try the best you can
If you try the best you can
The best you can is good enough
If you try the best you can
If you try the best you can
The best you can is good enough

This one’s optimistic
This one went to market
This one just came out of the swamp
This one dropped a payload
Fodder for the animals
Living on animal farm

If you try the best you can
If you try the best you can
The best you can is good enough
If you try the best you can
If you try the best you can
The best you can is good enough

I’d really like to help you, man

Nervous messed up marionettes
Floating around on a prison ship

Help me get back to your arms
Cheap sex and sad films

Nothing came
As your life flashed before your eyes
You realize

And you realize your looking, looking in the wrong place

there was nothing to fear and nothing to doubt

Doors in the rudders of big ships
And there are revolving doors
There are doors that open by themselves

Let’s go down the waterfall
Think about the good times and
Never look back
Never look back

Have ourselves a good time

Look into my eyes

So knives out
Catch the mouse
Don’t look down
Shove it in your mouth

They would have drowned you at birth

Look into my eyes
It’s the only way you’ll know I’m telling the truth

So knives out
Cook him up
Squash his head
Put him in the pot

I want you to know
He’s not coming back
He’s bloated and frozen
Still there’s no point in letting it go to waste

So knives out
Catch the mouse
Squash his head

There are weapons we can use
Be constructive with your blues

Why don’t you quiet down?

And you know maybe, maybe I)
Why don’t you quiet down?

And maybe wander the children’s land)

You never go out and you never stay
We won our goals in a liberal world
Living in times when I could stand it, babe

All over, baby’s crying
It’ll all be, baby, I can see out of here
All over the planet’s dead
All over the planet, so let me out of here
All over the, all over the, all over the, all over the

We are the dollars and cents and the pounds and pence
And the mark and the yen, and yeah

Like Spinning Plates

While you make pretty speeches,
I’m being cut to shreds.
You feed me to the lions,

Our bodies floating down the muddy river.

Life in a Glasshouse

Once again, I’m in trouble with my only friend
She is papering the window panes
She is putting on a smile
Living in a glass house

Once again, packed like frozen food and battery hens
Think of all the starving millions
Don’t talk politics and don’t throw stones
Your royal highnesses

Well of course I’d like to sit around and chat
Well of course I’d like to stay and chew the fat
Well of course I’d like to sit around and chat
But someone’s listening in.

Once again, we are hungry for a lynching
That’s a strange mistake to make
You should turn the other cheek
Living in a glass house

Well of course I’d like to sit around and chat
Well of course I’d like to stay and chew the fat
Well of course I’d like to sit around and chat
But someone’s listening in.

Are you such a dreamer?
To put the world to rights?
I’ll stay home forever
Where two & two always
makes up five

I’ll lay down the tracks
Sandbag & hide
January has April’s showers
And two & two always
makes up five

It’s the devil’s way now
There is no way out
You can scream & you
can shout
It is too late now
Because

You have not been
paying attention

I try to sing along
I get it all wrong
Ezeepeezeeeezeepeeezee
NOT
I swat em like flies but
Like flies the burgers
Keep coming back
NOT
Maybe not
“All hail to the thief”
“But I am not!”
“Don’t question my authority
or put me in the dock”
Cozimnot!
Go & tell the king that
The sky is falling in
When it’s not
Maybe not.

Oh honey sweet
So full of sleep

We tried but there was nothing we could do
Nothing we could do

All evidence has been buried
All tapes have been erased

holding half a head
Proceeded to show it off
to all his new found friends
he said “i been where i liked
i slept with who i liked
she ate me up for breakfast
and screwed me in a vice

and now i don’t know why
i feel so tongue-tied”

i sat in the cupboard
and wrote it down in neat
they were cheering and waving
cheering and waving
twitching and salivating like with myxomatosis
but it got edited fucked up
strangled, beaten up
used as a photo in Time magazine
buried in a burning black hole in Devon

“i don’t know why
i feel so tongue-tied

don’t know why
i feel so skinned alive.”

My thoughts are misguided and a little naive
I twitch and i salivate like with myxomatosis
you should put me in a home or you should put me down
I got myxomatosis

“now no one likes a smart arse but we all like stars”

15 Step

How come I end up where I started
How come I end up where I went wrong
Won’t take my eyes off the ball again
You reel me out then you cut the string

How come I end up where I started
How come I end up where I went wrong
Won’t take my eyes off the ball again
You reel me out then you cut the string

You used to be alright
What happened?
Did the cat get your tongue
Did your string come undone
One by one
One by one
It comes to us all
It’s as soft as your pillow

You used to be alright
What happened?
Etcetera etcetera
Facts for whatever
Fifteen steps
Then a shear drop

Bodysnatchers

I do not
Understand
What it is
I’ve done wrong
Full of holes
Check for pulse
Blink your eyes
One for yes
Two for no

I have no idea what I am talking about
I am trapped in this body and can’t get out
Ooooohhhh

You killed the sound
removed backbone
A pale imitation
With the edges
Sawn off

I have no idea what you are talking about
Your mouth moves only with someone’s hand up your ass
Ooooohhhh

Has the light gone out for you?
Because the light’s gone for me
It is the 21st century
It is the 21st century
It can follow you like a dog
It brought me to my knees
They got a skin and they put me in
They got a skin and they put me in
All the lines wrapped around my face
All the lines wrapped around my face
And for anyone else to see
And for anyone else to see

I’m a lie

I’ve seen it coming
I’ve seen it coming
I’ve seen it coming
I’ve seen it coming

Nude

Don’t get any big ideas
they’re not gonna happen
You paint yourself white
and feel up with noise
but there’ll be something missing

Now that you’ve found it, it’s gone
Now that you feel it, you don’t
You’ve gone off the rails

So don’t get any big ideas
they’re not going to happen
You’ll go to hell for what your dirty mind is thinking

Top

Weird Fishes/Arpeggi

In the deepest ocean
The bottom of the sea
Your eyes
They turn me
Why should I stay here?
Why should I stay?

I’d be crazy not to follow
Follow where you lead
Your eyes
They turn me

Turn me on to phantoms
I follow to the edge of the earth
And fall off
Everybody leaves
If they get the chance
And this is my chance

I get eaten by the worms
Weird fishes
Get picked over by the worms
Weird fishes
Weird fishes
Weird fishes

I’ll hit the bottom
Hit the bottom and escape
Escape

I’ll hit the bottom
Hit the bottom and escape
Escape

All I Need

I’m the next act
waiting in the wings
I’m an animal
Trapped in your hot car
I am all the days
that you choose to ignore

You are all I need
You are all I need
I’m in the middle of your picture
Lying in the reeds

I am a moth
who just wants to share your light
I’m just an insect
trying to get out of the night

I only stick with you
because there are no others

You are all I need
You are all I need
I’m in the middle of your picture
Lying in the reeds

It’s all wrong
It’s all right
It’s all wrong

Faust Arp

One two three four

Wakey wakey
rise and shine
it’s on again, off again, on again
watch me fall
like dominos
in pretty patterns
fingers in the blackbird pie
I’m tingling, tingling, tingling
it’s what you feel now
what you ought to, what you ought to
reasonable and sensible
dead from the neck up
because I’m stuffed, stuffed, stuffed
we thought you had it in you
but no, no, no
for no real reason

Squeeze the tubes and empty bottles
and take a bow, take a bow, take a bow
it’s what you feel now
what you ought to, what you ought to
an elephant that’s in the room is
tumbling, tumbling, tumbling
in duplicate and triplicate and
plastic bags and
duplicate and triplicate
dead from the neck up
I guess I’m stuffed, stuffed, stuffed
we thought you had it in you
but no, no, no
exactly where do you get off
is enough, is enough
I love you but enough is enough, enough
a last stop
there’s no real reason

You’ve got a head full of feathers
you got melted to butter

Reckoner

Reckoner
You can’t take it with you
Dancing for your pleasure

You are not to blame for
Bittersweet distractor
Dare not speak its name
Dedicated to all you
all human beings

Because we separate like
ripples on a blank shore
(in rainbows)
Because we separate like
ripples on a blank shore
(in rainbows)

Reckoner

Take me with you
Dedicated to all you
all human beings

House of Cards

I don’t want to be your friend
I just want to be your lover
No matter how it ends
No matter how it starts

Forget about your house of cards
And I’ll do mine
Forget about your house of cards
And I’ll do mine

Fall off the table,
Get swept under
Denial, denial

The infrastructure will collapse
Voltage spikes
Throw your keys in the bowl
Kiss your husband goodnight

Forget about your house of cards
And I’ll do mine
Forget about your house of cards
And I’ll do mine

Fall off the table,
And get swept under

Denial, denial
Denial, denial
Your ears should be burning
Denial, denial
Your ears should be burning
Denial, denial

Jigsaw Falling into Place

Just as you take my hand
Just as you write my number down
Just as the drinks arrive
Just as they play your favourite song
As your bad day disappears
No longer wound up like a spring
Before you’ve had too much
Come back in focus again

The walls are bending shape
You got a cheshire cat grin
All blurring into one
This place is on a mission

Before the night owl
Before the animal noises
Closed circuit cameras
Before you comatose

Before you run away from me
Before you’re lost between the notes
The beat goes round and round
The beat goes round and round

I never really got there
I just pretended that I had
Words are blunt instruments
Words are sawn off shotguns

Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out

Before you run away from me
Before your lost between the notes
Just as you take the mic
Just as you dance, dance, dance

A Jigsaw falling into place
So there is nothing to explain
You eye each other as you pass
She looks back and you look back
Not just once
and not just twice
Wish away your nightmare
Wish away the nightmare
You got the light you can feel it on your back
[A light,] you can feel it on your back
Your jigsaw falling into place

Videotape

When I’m at the pearly gates
This will be on my videotape, my videotape
Mephistopheles is just beneath
and he’s reaching up to grab me

This is one for the good days
and i have it all here
In red, blue, green
Red, blue, green

You are my center
When i spin away
Out of control on videotape
On videotape
On videotape
On videotape

This is my way of saying goodbye
Because I can’t do it face to face
I’m talking to you before

No matter what happens now
You shouldn’t be afraid
Because I know today has been the most perfect day I’ve ever seen.

Down is the New Up

Get yourself together
Let the light pour in
Pour yourself a hot bath, pour yourself a drink
Nothing’s gonna happen without a warning
Down is the new up
What is up, buttercup
Down is the new up, is the new up

Your services are not required
Your future’s bleak, you’re so last week

Ladies and gentlemen, without a safety net
I shall now perform a 180 flip-flop
I shall now amputate, I shall now contort
Because down is the new up
What if I just flip-flopped?
Down is the new up
Down is the new up
Down is the new up, is the new up

You crawled off and left us.
You crawled off and left us.
You bastard. You bastard.

You’re on Candid Camera
The chink in your armor
Topsy turvy town, topsy turvy town
Shake your pockets out
Pass it on, pass it down
Topsy turvy town, topsy turvy town

You crawled off and left us.
You crawled off and left us.
You bastard. You bastard.
You crawled off and left us.
You crawled off and left us.

last Flowers

Appliances have gone berserk
I cannot keep up
Treading on people’s toes
Snot-nosed little punk

And I can’t face the evening straight
You can offer me escape
Houses move and houses speak
If you take me then you’ll get relief
relief, relief, relief, …

And if I’m gonna talk
I just wanna talk
Please don’t interrupt
Just sit back and listen

Cause I can’t face the evening straight
And you can offer me escape
Houses move and houses speak
If you take me then you’ll get relief
relief, relief, relief, relief…

It’s too much
Too bright
Too powerful

Too much
Too bright
Too powerful

Up on the Ladder

I’m stuck in the tardis
trapped in hyperspace
one minute snake charming
the next in a motorcade

all the right moves and
earn the right percent
watch me dance like a puppet
you can almost see the strings

give me an answer
give me a sign
i’ve been climbing up this ladder
i’ve been wasting my time

so long, so long
so long, so long

up on the ladder
no time to escape
up on the ladder
away for fucking sake

up on the ladder
try to call out your name
up on the ladder
you’re all the fucking same

oh, you let the people down
you let the people down
you let the people down

Bangers and Mash

You bit me, bit me, bit me, ow
You bit me, bit me, now I want more

Standing in the hall
Kicking out the wall
It’s all been sent to recover hell
The bangers and the mash
The negatives for cash
You’re either in the club, baby, or you’re not

Whatever turns you on
Whatever gets you off
Chief of police or vice-chancellor
Lord and lady, blah blah
The vicar or the judge
You are dancing to my little red book

Because you bit me, bit me, bit me, ow
I got the poison, poison, and I want more

If you are on top
Then it is a long drop
The pyramid is power
We’re changing the hour
If you are on the top
Then it is a long drop
If you stare into the dark
The black will stare back
Back into your soul

I’m taking you down
I’m taking you down
I’m taking you down
When I go down
I’m taking you down
I’m taking you down
I’m standing in the hall
I’m kicking at the wall

Because you bit me, bit me, bit me, ow
Poison, I got the poison, I got the poison now
I got the poison

4 Minute Warning

This is just a nightmare
Soon I’m going to wake up
Someone’s gonna bring me ’round

Running from the bombers
Hiding in the forest
Running through the fields

Laying flat on the ground
Just like everybody
Steping over heads

Running from the underground
This is your warning
4 minute warning

I don’t wanna hear it
I don’t wanna know
I just wanna run and hide

This is just a nightmare
But soon I’m gonna wake up
Someone’s gonna bring me ’round

This is a warning
4 minute warning

The Eraser

Please excuse me but I got to ask
Are you only being nice
Because you want something
My fairy tale arrow pierces
Be careful how you respond
‘Cause you’d not end up in this song
I never gave you an encouragement
And it’s doing me in
Doing me in
Doing me in
Doing me in

The more you try to erase me
The more, the more
The more that I appear
Oh the more, the more
The more you try the eraser
The more, the more
The more that you appear

You know the answer so why do you ask
I am only being nice
Because I want someone, something
You’re like a kitten with a ball of yarn
And it’s doing me in
Doing me in
Doing me in
Doing me in

The more you try to erase me
The more, the more
The more that I appear
Oh the more, the more
The more I try to erase you
The more, the more
The more that you appear
No, you’re wrong, you’re wrong
You’re wrong, you’re wrong
You’re wrong, you’re wrong
You’re wrong

Analyse

A self-fulfilling prophecy of endless possibility
You roll in reams across the street
In algebra, in algebra

The fences that you cannot climb
The sentences that do not rhyme
In all that you can ever change
The one you’re looking for

It gets you down
It gets you down

There’s no spark
No light in the dark

It gets you down
It gets you down
You traveled far
What have you found
That there’s no time
There’s no time
To analyse
To think things through
To make sense

Like cows in the city, they never looked so pretty
By power carts and blackouts
Sleeping like babies

It gets you down
It gets you down
You’re just playing a part
You’re just playing a part

You’re playing a part
Playing a part
And there’s no time
There’s no time
To analyse

The Clock

Time is running out for us
But you just move the hands upon the clock
You throw coins in the wishing well
For us
You just move your hands upon the wall

It comes to you begging you to stop
Wake up
But you just move your hands upon the clock
Throw coins in the wishing well
For us
You make believe that you are still in charge

Top

Black Swan

What will grow quickly, that you can’t make straight
It’s the price you gotta pay
Do yourself a favour and pack you bags
Buy a ticket and get on the train
Buy a ticket and get on the train

Cause this is fucked up, fucked up
Cause this is fucked up, fucked up

People get crushed like biscuit crumbs
And laid down in the bed you made
You have tried your best to please everyone
But it just isn’t happening
No, it just isn’t happening

And it’s fucked up, fucked up
And this is fucked up, fucked up
This your blind spot, blind spot
It should be obvious, but it’s not.
But it isn’t, but it isn’t

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don’t care what the future holds
Cause I’m right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I’m your black swan, black swan
But I made it to the top, made it to the top
This is fucked up, fucked up

You are fucked up, fucked up
This is fucked up, fucked up

Be your black swan, black swan
I’m for spare parts, broken up

Skip Divided

I’m in a skip divided malfunction
I flap around and dive bomb
Frantically around your light
Enveloped in a sad distraction
I got your voice repeating endlessly
Could you guide me in?
Could you smother me?

I swoop around your head
But I never hit
I’m blinded by your daylight
Electric veins pass through me
I thought there was this big connection
I only got my name I only got the situation
I just need a number and location
Without appropriate papers or permissions
I’m known to bite in tight situations
And I head into your french windows
I thought there was a big connection
I only got my name I only got my situation
I just need my number and location

And my mum keeps telling me
Hey hey hey hey hey hey
The devil may
Hey hey hey hey hey hey
You are a fool [x2]
For sticking round [x2]
Yeah you are a fool [x2]
For sticking round [x2]
I tried every trick in the book
I tried to look and knew
Every trick in the book
But how come I look?

No more common dress or elliptical caress
Don’t look into your eyes cause I’m desperately in love
In love
When you walk in the room everything disappears
When you walk in the room it’s a terrible mess
When you walk in the room I start to melt
When you walk in the room I follow you round
Like a dog, I’m a dog, I’m a dog, I’m a lapdog
I’m your lapdog, yeah
I just got a number and location
I just need my number and location

Atoms for Peace

No more going to the dark side with your flying saucer eyes
No more falling down a wormhole that I have to pull you out

The wriggling, squiggling worm inside
Devours from the inside out

No more talk about the old days
It’s time for something great

I want you to get out
And make it work

So many lies
So many lies
So many lies
So feel the love come off of them
And take me in your arms

Peel all of your layers off
I want to eat your artichoke heart

No more leaky holes in your brain
And no false starts

I wanna get out
And make it work

So many lies
So many lies
So many lies
So feel the love come off of them
And take me in your arms

I wanna get out
And make it work

I want you to get out
And make it work

I’ll be ok

So many lies
So many lies
So many lies
So feel the love come off of them
And take me in your arms

And it Rained All Night

And it rained all night and washed the filth away
Down New York airconditioned drains
The click click clack of the heavy black trains
A million engines in neutral

The tick tock tick of a ticking timebomb
Fifty feet of concrete underground
One little leak becomes a lake
Says the tiny voice in my earpiece
So I give in to the rhythm
The click click clack
I’m too wasted to fight back
Tick tack goes the pendulum on the old grandfather clock

I can see you
But I can never reach you

And it rained all night and then all day
The drops were the size of your hands and face
The worms come out to see what’s up
We pull the cars up from the river

It’s relentless
Invisible
Indefatigable
Indisputable
Undeniable

So how come it looks so beautiful?
How come the moon falls from the sky?

I can see you
But I can never reach you

I can see you
But I can never reach you

Harrowdown Hill

Don’t walk the plank like I did
You will be dispensed with
When you’ve become
Inconvenient
Up on Harrowdown hill
Near where you used to go to school
That’s where I, that’s where I’m lying down
Did I fall or was I pushed?
Did I fall or was I pushed?
Then where’s the blood?
Then where’s the blood?

But I’m coming home, I’m coming home
To make it all right
So dry your eyes

We think the same things at the same time
We just can’t do anything about it
We think the same things at the same time
We just can’t do anything about it

So don’t ask me ask the ministry
So don’t ask me ask the ministry

We think the same things at the same time
There are so many of us
Oh you can’t count
We think the same things at the same time
There are so many of us
Oh you can’t count

Can you see me when I’m running
Can you see me when I’m running
Away from them
Away from them
I can’t take the pressure
No one cares if you live or die
They just want me gone
They want me gone

But I’m coming home, I’m coming home
To make it all right
So dry your eyes

We think the same things at the same time
We just can’t do anything about it
We think the same things at the same time
There are too many of us so you can’t
There are too many of us so you can’t count!

It was me written to the background Harrowdown Hill
It was me written to the background Harrowdown Hill
It was a slippery slippery slippery slope
It was a slippery slippery slippery slope
I feel me slipping in and out of consciousness
I feel me slipping in and out of consciousness
I feel me

Cymbal Rush

Try to save it but it doesn’t come off the rock
Try to build a wall that is high enough

It’s all boiling over a
All boiling over

Try to save your house
Try to save your songs
Try to run
But it follows you up a hill

It’s all boiling over
All boiling over
Your little voice
Your little voice

No more conversation
No more conversation
You should took me out when you had the chance
You should took me out when you had the chance
All the rooms were numbered
And the losers turned away
Don’t turn away
Don’t turn away

Caught in a rat’s nest

Sewn up in stitches, stitches

The comittee is content, content
To live in a rat’s nest
Rat’s nest

A rats nest
Caught in own mess
Setting the traps
Nest full of rats

Jetstream

Is this a free seat?
Which way you heading?
You keep pushing and you keep pushing.
Between the whipcrack
And the moonbeams
I said coach man where we heading?
The gleaming teeth
Of the inbetween
I can hear some people laughing
Is this is a stitch up?
I am not willing
So i am turning you off and then I’m counting
I regret
I turn the clock back
To where i wasn’t taken in.
I jump out
Of a window
And get lost in a jetstream.
This is a ghost coach
That we are riding
Damp decay and splintering
Between the whipcrack
And the moonbeams
I can hear some people laughing
We need a rubber man
We need a stretchy man
I’m not sure I am welcome.
You are a fool
And this is over
Over the cliffs of Dover.
I regret.
I turn the clock back.
To where I wasn’t taken in.
I jump out
Of a window
And get lost in a jetstream
You’re beautiful
Until I get close
You have the eyes of a mountain goat.
A coat of mildew
A bad smell
And the strap broke in my hand.
Now I wanna turn back
Turn back.
I wanna turn back.
You need a rubber man
You need a stretchy man
You need a rubber man
You need a stretchy man
I wanna turn back

To Be a Brilliant Light

like the time of life I’ve reached
I’m getting pretty old
I should be reaching my peak

but I haven’t made the stairs yet
but you know what mean girls say
if you haven’t got it when your thirty
that’s the way you stay

I can wash and clean the bedrooms
I can make some egg and toast
if you let me stay the night
then I’ll let you get some rest

we could talk awhile on the futon
if that’s the way you want it
tell me where you want me
tell me where to sit

where to start to build a clock
yeah, I depended on you
I depended on you
to be a brilliant light yeah
to be a brilliant light
to be a brilliant light yeah
to be a brilliant light

bring me in the church
on the corner of your street
I’ll be praying for forgiveness
I’ll be praying for some love

because I haven’t got a job
and my heart’s been closed
you could start with the trousers
’cause it’s what’s stopping the blood flow

where to start to build a clock
I depended on you
I depended on you

to be a brilliant light yeah

Somebody

I made one true day
I may buy you all the things you need
and sleep with you and call you names

but deep down inside
grab a apple on a naked tree
and nothing will ever change

’cause there’s somebody else
though I don’t know who the hell she is
and maybe I love her
but I’m back in my head
I’m somebody else’s buddy prick
won’t somebody just might compromise who I am

there’s somebody there
they were knocking on my forehead
and talking from inside my brain
they’re guiding my thoughts
they’re watching me play with you
and they’ll never go away

’cause there’s somebody else
though I don’t know who the hell she is
and maybe I love her
but I’m back in my head
I’m somebody else’s buddy prick
won’t somebody just might compromise who I am

there’s somebody there
they were knocking on my forehead
and talking from inside my brain
they’re guiding my thoughts
they’re watching me play with you
and they’ll never go away

What is that You See?

Blood on the corner, pictures fall
Making some noise with a big ?

? over the sky
Spinning around as you gaze at the sun

What is that you see
Why don’t you talk to me
What is that you see
Black and blue fingers ’round my neck

I see the grass is still where me made our beds
I see the ? right at it’s edge

I see your holy Jesus and the ?
I see the ghost of you and me
?

What is that you see
Why don’t you talk to me
What is that you see
Black and blue fingers ’round my neck

There’s something out there
But I don’t know what the hell it is
There’s something out there as you gaze at the sun

Give It Up

She said she wanted more of that stuff
The stuff that makes your heart go pitter-patter
The stuff that makes everything turn blue and green
She said that she prefers it like that

Give it up (x3) Hey!
Give it up oo-oh!
Give it up, hey!

She said the world ain’t the gas it used to be
Too many people starving and fighting
Too many salesmen, too many factories
But she likes getting high ’cause it’s free

Give it up (x3) Hey!
Give it up oo-oh!
Give it up, hey!
Give it up
Give it up (x3) Hey!
Give it up oo-oh!

How Can You Be Sure?

seen all good things and bad
running down the hill
all so battered and brought to the ground

I am hungry again, I am drunk again
all the money I owe to my friends

when I’m like this
how can you be smiling, singing
how can you be sure
how can you be sure

if you walk out the door
will I see you again?
if so much of me lies in your eyes

I am hungry again, I am drunk again
all the money I owe to my friends

when I’m like this
how can you be smiling, singing
how can you be sure (I don’t want you)
how can you be sure (I don’t want you)
how can you be sure (I don’t want you)
how can you be sure (I don’t want you)

but everybody says
it’s life with a big F
la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la

mister beetle is half awake
but I won’t let them say my name
yeah I won’t pay them money that I owe
though she don’t play no tricks on me

Burning Bush

Braid magic up and down America
And on comes a man
With a smile that’s taken years to fix
Spreading pesitilence and disease
Till it’s holding him
And could know no difference

And I want to know
And I want to know
I want to know
Is this going to be the one
The one who gets it done
Tell me burning bush
Tell me burning bush
Maybe we should have been the bush

I believe in freedom for the nations
The ones who cannot cope
With a life full of heart attacks in money belts
The Madonnas and Coca Cola
And corporations who own the very air that you breath

And I want to know
And I want to know
I want to know
I want to know
Is this going to be the one who drops the bomb
The one who gets it wrong
Tell me burning bush

Creep

Million Dollar Question
Yes I Am
Inside My Head
Killer Cars

Million Dollar Question

was always waiting for the crush
the car to drive right through the shops
to call in sick and late for work
and take a holiday

was always tangled up in knots
to keep myself from speaking up
but no one’s listening anyway
just trying to bribe me

and if it’s alright, then what are we doing here
and if it’s alright, this place is gassed by fear
and if it’s alright, I’ll tell you ’cause you’ll never understand
and if it’s alright, I’ll beg you, because I’m a begging kind of man

today I wrote a bad cheque
packed a bag and took a jet
but no-one’s looking anway
I hope they miss me

sometimes I think maybe I’m making a big mistake

Yes I Am

I resent you calling
I resent your voice
I resent that I don’t have a choice

anywhere I go
you are always there
outside the car
or in my hair

I think I’ve been here before
yes I’ve been here before
the last time you locked
all the doors

and I resent you calling
I resent your voice
I resent that I don’t have a choice

and yes I am wary
yes I am wary

I think I’ve told you once
I think I needed advice
you were such a help
that’s very nice

I think I’ve been here before
yes I’ve been here before
but this time I kick down your door

yes I am wary
yes I am wary

Inside My Head

what do you want from me
now you got me
now my fingers bleed
now they’re staring at me
I’m coward now
I hold my peace

now you tie me up to your feather bed
and I twist and turn in a chinese burn
you won’t let go
you won’t let go

you’re inside my head
inside my head

what do you want from me
now you got me
now my energy
you suck from me
and I’m holding on
for dear life

quit smothering me
quit laughing at me
I’ve got a disease
an english disease
it won’t let go
it won’t let go

you’re inside my head
inside my head

whatever you put in that syringe
whatever you really fed to him
he’s sitting there inside of me

and you bother me, you possess me
you’re there again, ahead of me
and I won’t let go, I won’t let go

you’re inside my head
inside my head
inside my head
inside my head

Killer Cars

too hard on the breaks again
what if these breaks just give in

I’m going out for a little drive
and it could be the last time you see me alive
there could be an idiot on the road
the only kick in life is pumping his steel

they wrap me up in the back of the trunk
packed with foam and blind drunk
they won’t ever take me alive
’cause they all drive killer cars

don’t die on the motorway
the moon would freeze, the plants would die
I couldn’t cope if you crashed today
all the things I forgot to say

I’m going out for a little drive
and it could be the last time you see me alive
what if the car loses control
what if there’s someone overtaking

they wrap me up in the back of the trunk
packed with foam and blind drunk
they won’t ever take me alive
’cause they all drive killer cars

I can’t put the needle in

no I can’t put the needle in
I can’t put the needle in

and now I know just what it is
it’s called disease and it’s got my head
it always runs where I hide

too scared to talk
too scared to try
too scared to know the reasons why
and all my friends say bye bye

it died an ugly death by back-catalogue
and now you know it gets you nowhere
and now you know, you realise

oh no, pop is dead, it just gave up
we raise the dead, but they won’t stand up
and radio has salmonella
and now you know you’re gonna die

he left this message for us

so what pop is dead, it’s no great loss
so many facelifts, his face flew off
the emperor really has no clothes on
and his skin is peeling off

so what, pop is dead, long live pop,
one final line of coke to jack him off
jack him off

he left this message for us

Pop is Dead

Banana Co.

oh, Banana Co.
we really love you and we need you

oh, she said “No go”
she said she’d like to, she’s seen you

and everything’s underground
we’ve gotta dig it up somehow

everything’s burning down
we gotta put it out somehow

I can’t sleep
why can’t someone hold me

my restless body cracks and moans

I won’t have the strength
when you really need me

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

Pearly*

how’d you get your teeth so pearly
dew-drop dentures, white-washed fences
she runs from the third world, pearly

vanilla milkshakes from Hard Rock Cafes
(feel it crawl to me, crawl back again, whatever you say, it won’t go away)
that’s where she got her sweet tooth for white boys
(I feel it crawl to me, crawl back again, it won’t go away, whatever you say)
she runs from the third world, pearly

use me

A Reminder

if I get old
I will not give in
but if I do
remind me of this

remind me that
once I was free
once I was cool
once I was me

and if I sat down
and crossed my arms
hold me onto this song

knock me out
smash out my brains
if I take a chair
and start to talk shit

if I get old
remind me of this
the way that we kissed
when I really meant it

whatever happens
if we’re still speaking
pick up the phone
play me this song

Melatonin

don’t forget that you are our son
now go back to bed

we just know that you’ll do well
you won’t come to harm

death to all who stand in your way
wake my dear

Lull

you stop the crowd
I cried out to break the spell
you wake and smile
I just snapped and lost control

distracted by irrelevance
the stress and the tension
the stress and the tension
I’m in a lull

there’s nothing more dull
then talking about yourself
but what I meant to say
I’m sorry that I lost control

distracted by irrelevance
the stress and the tension
crawling through the keyhole when
I’m in a lull

let it fall
let it fall

How I Made My Millions

in a city of the future
it is difficult to concentrate
meet the boss, meet the wife
everybody’s happy
everyone is made for life

in a city of the future
it is difficult to find a space
I’m too busy to see you
you’re too busy to wait

but I’m okay, how are you
thanks for asking, thanks for asking
I’m okay, how are you
I hope you’re okay too

give me one of those days
when the sky is California blue
with a beautiful bombshell
I throw myself into my work
It’s amazing, I’m kidding myself for so long

I’m okay, how are you
thanks for asking, thanks for asking
I’m okay, but how are you
I hope you’re okay too

The Amazing Sounds of Orgy

I want to see you smile again
like diamonds in the dust
the amazing sound of the killing hordes
the day the banks collapsed on us

cease this endless chattering
like everything is fine
when sorry is not good enough
sit in the back while no-one drives

so glad, so glad you’re mine
so glad, so glad you’re mine
so glad, so glad you’re mine
so glad, so glad you’re mine

I was born for your magazine
for your magazine
I am trapped in the society page
of your magazine
of your magazine

I don’t know what it means

do you see light at the end of the tunnel
at the end of the tunnel
do you see light at the end of the tunnel
these are things that get on my nerves
at the end of the tunnel
at the end of the tunnel

you better start naming names

you don’t really talk to me
you don’t really say your words
you’re trying to get off the hook
you’re trying to get off the hook

sprawling on a pin
hanging off the hook
you’re trying to get yourself away
you’re trying to get yourself away

there’s no use dwelling on
on what might have been
just think of all the fun
you could be having

we know the way you talk
we know what you want
we know what you want
what you really want

take a look around
there’s candles on the cake
on what might have been
the road you should have took
mistakes mistaken

there’s no use dwelling on
no use dwelling on

it’s such a beautiful day
it’s such a beautiful day
find yourself a ???
go and get some rest

it’s such a beautiful day
it’s such a beautiful day
go up to the mic
go up to the mic
go and get some rest

Fog

there’s a little child
running ‘round this house
and he never leaves
he will never leave
and the fog comes up from the sewers
and glows in the dark

baby alligators
in the sewers
grow up fast
grow up fast
anything you want it can be done

how
how did you go bad
did you go bad
did you go bad

some things will never wash away
did you go bad
did you go bad

as the tanks roll into town
as the tanks roll into town
a little bit of knowledge will destroy you
a little bit of knowledge will destroy you

I dont know why I feel so tongue-tied
I dont know why I feel so skinned alive

run until your lungs are sore
until you cannot feel it any more
run until your lungs are sore
until you find an open door

I built you up to pull you down
tie you to your feet and watch you drown
a little bit of knowledge will destroy you
a little bit of knowledge will destroy you

I built you up to pull you down
tie you to your stake and watch you burn
in hell
in hell

I dont know why I feel so tongue-tied
I dont know why I feel so skinned alive

I’ll find another skin to wear
I’ll find another skin to wear

I know what you’re thinking
but I’m not your property
no matter what you say
no matter what you say

move along
there’s nothing left to see
just a body
nothing left to see

a couple more for breakfast
a little more for tea
just to take the edge off
just to take the edge off

move along
there’s nothing left to see
just a body
pouring down the street

move along
there’s nothing left to see

I am a Wicked Child

mother mary come to me
for I am a wicked child
I’ve sinned and I am so confused
and I am a wicked child
I am a wicked child

I am the devil’s son
and I wish I could be good
I walk a crooked mile
and I wish I could be good
I wish I could be good

if I could have kept on the straight and narrow
if I could have kept on the straight and narrow
and not have broke your heart
not have broke your heart

now I wake up in the night
he’s tugging at my arms and legs
like I was a marionette

send baby Jesus
to radiate his light
