Pablo Honey

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
I can see me drowning
Caught in the fire

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 fuckin' special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

I don't care if it hurts
I wanna 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 fuckin' special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here, oh, oh

She's runnin' out the door
She's runnin' out
She run, run, run, run
Run

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' 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 man say, "I don't want to hear your voice"
And the thin man 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 the 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
Because 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
Can't remember what it is
Dear Sir, I have a complaint
Can't remember what it is

It doesn't matter anyway
It doesn't matter anyway

Stop whispering
Stop whispering
Stop whispering
Stop whispering, start shouting

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 and 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 anymore

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 anymore

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, yeah

The answer to your prayers, we'll drop you anywhere

No ripcord, no ripcord
No ripcord, 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 vegetable
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 vegetable
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
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, now, 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
I'm nailed to 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 to 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)
Turns

The Bends

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 stone
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
All of 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 we 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
Falling asleep against the window pane
My blood will thicken

I need to wash myself again
To hide all the dirt and pain
'Cause I'd be scared
That there's nothing underneath
And who are my real friends?
Have they all got the bends?
Am I really sinking this low?

My baby's got the bends
We don't have any real friends
I'm just lying in a bar with my drip feed on
Talking to my girlfriend waiting for something to happen
And 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
I'm just lying in a 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 want to live and breathe
I want to be part of the human race
I want to live and breathe
I want to 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 will 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 at you
You will 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

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

Her 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
For girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins

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

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

--
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 you do it to yourself, just you
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 to you
And teach you how to get to purest hell

You do it to yourself, you do
And that's what really hurts
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 you do it to yourself, just you
You and no one else
You do it to yourself
You do it to yourself, ah
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 receiving pain
A lack of oxygen
From my life support
My iron lung

We're too young to fall asleep
Too 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 W.A.S.T.E 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 okay

And if you're frightened
You can be frightened
You can be, it's okay

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

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

Bullet Proof..I Wish I Was

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

Wax me, mold 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 me money, 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
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 it's 58 hours since that I last slept with you
What are we coming to?
I just don't know anymore

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

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

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

This is killing me
This is killing me

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 and 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 its 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

Airbag

In the next world war
A jackknifed 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
I am back to save the universe

In an interstellar burst
I am back to save the universe

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 there? (I may be paranoid, but not an android)
What's there? (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 there? (I may be paranoid, but no android)
What's there? (I may be paranoid, but no android)

Ambition makes you look pretty ugly
Kicking, 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

(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

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

That's it sir, you're leaving (Rain down)
The crackle of pigskin (Rain down)
The dust and the screaming (Come on, rain down)
The yuppies networking (On me)
The panic, the vomit (From a great height)
The panic, the vomit (From a great height)
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
Up

I wish that they'd swoop 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 all right
All right
I'm all right

I'm just 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

You can laugh
A spineless laugh
We hope your rules and wisdom choke you

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 tram lines
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 am 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 am 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
He talks in maths
He buzzes like a fridge
He's like a detuned radio

Karma police, arrest this girl
Her Hitler hairdo
Is making me feel ill
And we have crashed her party

This is what you'll get
This is what you'll get
This is what you'll get when you mess with us

Karma police, I've given all I can
It's not enough
I've given all I can
But we're still on the payroll

This is what you'll get
This is what you'll get
This is what you'll get when you mess with us

For a minute there
I lost myself
I lost myself
Phew, for a minute there
I lost myself
I lost myself

Oh for a minute there
I lost myself
I lost myself
Phew, for a minute there
I lost myself
I lost myself

Favours for favours
Fond but not in love
Charity standing orders
On Sundays ring road supermarket
(No killing moths or putting boiling water on the ants)
Car wash (also on Sundays)
No longer afraid of the dark or midday shadows
Nothing so ridiculously teenage and desperate
Nothing so childish
At a better pace
Slower and more calculated
No chance of escape
Now self-employed
Concerned (but powerless)
An empowered and informed member of society (pragmatism not idealism)
Will not cry in public
Less chance of illness
Tyres that grip in the wet (shot of baby strapped in back seat)
A good memory
Still cries at a good film
Still kisses with saliva
No longer empty and frantic
Like a cat
Tied to a stick
That's driven into
Frozen winter shit (the ability to laugh at weakness)
Calm
Fitter, healthier and more productive
A pig
In a cage
On antibiotics

Electioneering

I will stop, I will stop at nothing
Say the right things when electioneering
I trust I can rely on your vote

When I go forwards you go backwards
And somewhere we will meet
When I go forwards you go backwards
And somewhere we will meet
Ha ha ha

Riot shields, voodoo economics
It's just business, cattle prods and the IMF
I trust I can rely on your vote

When I go forwards you go backwards
And somewhere we will meet
When I go forwards you go backwards
And somewhere we will meet

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 colour 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

That either way he turns
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 my head
Fifteen blows to your mind

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

But either way you turn
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
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
Silent
Silent

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 air crash
Pull me out of the lake
'Cause 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 air crash
Pull me out of the lake
'Cause 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 seen the sparks a-flowing
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
You ask me where the hell I'm going
At a thousand 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

How to Disappear Completely

That there
That's not me
I go
Where I please
I walk through walls
I float down the Liffey
I'm not here
This isn't happening

In a little while
I'll be gone
The moment's already passed
Yeah it's gone
And I'm not here

Strobe lights and blown speakers
Fireworks and hurricanes

Optimistic

Flies are buzzing round my head
Vultures circling the dead
Picking up every last crumb
The big fish eat the little ones
Big fish eat the little ones
Not my problem, give me some

You can try the best you can
You can try the best you can
The best you can is good enough
You can try the best you can
You can 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 drops a payload
Fodder for the animals
Living on animal farm

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

I'd really like to help you, man
I'd really like to help you, man
Nervous messed up marionettes
Floating around on a prison ship

The best you can is good enough

I got a message I can't read
Another message I can't read

Being the first in the Irish Sea

I'm on your side
Nowhere to hide
Trapdoors that open
I spiral down

Motion Picture Soundtrack

Red wine and sleeping pills
Help me get back to your arms
Cheap sex and sad films
Help me get where I belong

I think you're crazy, maybe
I think you're crazy, maybe

Stop sending letters
Letters always get burned
It's not like the movies
They fed us on little white lies

I think you're crazy, maybe
I think you're crazy, maybe

I will see you in the next life

[Original last verse not included on Kid A]

Beautiful angel
Pulled apart at birth
Limbless and helpless
I can't even recognize you

I think you're crazy, maybe

Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box

After years of waiting, nothing came
As your life flashed before your eyes, you realize
I'm a reasonable man, get off, get off, get off my case
I'm a reasonable man, get off my case, get off my case
After years of waiting

After years of waiting, nothing came
And you realize you're looking in, looking in the wrong place

Pyramid Song

I jumped in the river, what did I see?
Black-eyed angels swam with me
A moon full of stars and astral cars
And all the figures I used to see

All my lovers were there with me
All my past and futures
And we all went to heaven in a little row boat
There was nothing to fear, nothing to doubt

Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors

There are barn doors
And there are revolving doors

Doors on the rudders of big ships
We are revolving doors

There are doors that open by themselves
There are sliding doors
And there are secret doors

And doors that don't

There are doors that let you in
And out
But never open
But they are trapdoors
That you can't come back from

Look into my eyes

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

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

Be constructive

Like Spinning Plates

While you make pretty speeches

My body's floating down a muddy river

Life in a Glasshouse

Once again, I'm in trouble with my own 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
Only, only, only
Only, only, only
Only, only, only

2 + 2 = 5 (The Lukewarm)

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

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

It's the devil's way now
There is no way out
You can scream and you can shout
It is too late now

Because you have not been
Payin' attention
Payin' attention
Payin' attention
Payin' attention
You have not been paying attention
Payin' attention
Payin' attention
Payin' attention
You have not been paying attention

You have not been paying attention
Payin' attention

Payin' attention oohh

I try to sing along
But the music's all wrong
'Cause I'm not
'Cause I'm not
I swat 'em like flies
But like flies the buggers
Keep coming back
And not
But I'm not
All hail to the thief
All hail to the thief
But I'm not
But I'm not
But I'm not
But I'm not
Don't question my authority or put me in a box
'Cause I'm not
'Cause I'm not
Oh go and tell the king
That the sky is falling in
But it's not
But it's not
But it's not
Maybe not
Maybe not

And how much did it cost?

Or in the flood
You'll build an Ark

We're damaged goods
What the hell, we've got nothing more to lose
One gust and we will probably crumble
We're backdrifters

This far but no further
I'm hanging off a branch
I'm teetering on the brink
Oh, honey sweet, so full of sleep
I'm backsliding

You fell into our arms
You fell into our arms
We tried but there was nothing we could do
Nothing we could do

All evidence has been buried
All tapes have been erased
But your footsteps give you away
So you're backtracking

Ah, ah, ah

We tried but there was nothing we could do

Where I End and You Begin. (The Sky is Falling in)

There's a gap in between
There's a gap where we meet
Where I end and you begin

And I'm sorry for us
The dinosaurs roam the earth
The sky turns green
Where I end and you begin

I am up in the clouds
I am up in the clouds
And I can't and I can't come down

I can watch but not take part
Where I end and where you start
Where you, you left me alone
You left me alone

X will now mark the place
Like the parting of the waves
Like a house falling into the sea
Into the sea

Are you begging for a break?

Are you sweet?

Are you strung up by the wrists?

We want the young blood

Are you fracturing?
Are you torn at the seams?
Would you do anything?
Flea-bitten? Motheaten?

We suck young blood

Won't let the creeping ivy
Won't let the nervous bury me
Our veins are thin
Our rivers poisoned

We want the sweet meats
We want the young blood
We suck young blood
We want the young blood

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 a-salivating like with myxomatosis

But it got edited, fucked up
Strangled beaten up
Used in a photo in 'Time' magazine
Buried in a burning black hole in Devon

And 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
I got myxomatosis

Yeah, no one likes a smartarse but we all like stars
That wasn't my intention (tension), I did it for a reason (treason)
It must have got mixed up
Strangled, beaten up
I got myxomatosis
I got myxomatosis

And I don't know why I feel so tongue-tied

Scatterbrain. (As Dead as Leaves)

I'm walking out
In a force ten gale
Birds thrown around
Bullets for hail

The roof is pulling off
By its fingernails
Your voice is rapping
On my window sill

Yesterday's headlines
Blown by the wind
Yesterday's people
End up scatterbrain

Then any fool can
Easy pick a hole
("I only wish I could fall in")
A moving target
In a firing range

Somewhere I'm not
Scatterbrain
Somewhere I'm not
Scatterbrain

Lightning fuse
Powercut

A Wolf at the Door. (It Girl. Rag Doll)

Drag him out your window, dragging out the dead
Singing I miss you, snakes and ladders flip the lid
Out pops the cracker, smacks you in the head
Knifes you in the neck, kicks you in the teeth
Steel toe caps, takes all your credit cards
Get up, get the gunge, get the eggs
Get the flan in the face
The flan in the face
The flan in the face
Dance you fucker dance you fucker
Don't you dare
Don't you dare
Don't you flan in the face
Take it with the love its given, take it with a pinch of salt
Take it to the tax man
Let me back
Let me back
I promise to be good. don't look in the mirror
At the face you don't recognize
Help me, call the doctor, put me inside
Put me inside
Put me inside
Put me inside
Put me inside

I keep the wolf from the door but he calls me up
Calls me on the phone
Tells me all the ways that he's gonna mess me up
Steal all my children if I don't pay the ransom
And I'll never see them again if I squeal to the cops

Walking like giant cranes and with my X-ray eyes I strip you naked
In a tight little world and are you on the list?
Stepford wives who are we to complain?
Investments and dealers
Investments and dealers
Cold wives and mistresses
Cold wives and Sunday papers city
Boys in First Class don't know we're born, just know someone else is gonna come and clean it up
Born and raised for the job, someone always does
I wish you'd get up get over get up get over and turn the tape off

I keep the wolf from the door
But he calls me up
Calls me on the phone
Tells me all the ways that he's gonna mess me up
Steal all my children if I don't pay the ransom
And I'll never see them again if I squeal to the cops
So I just go oooo...

The Eraser

Please excuse me but I've got to ask
Are you only being nice
Because you want something?

My fairytale arab princess
Be careful how you respond
'Cause you might 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
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 wool
And it's doing me in
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

Analyse

A self-fulfilling prophecy
Of endless possibility
In rolling reams across the screen
In algebra, in algebra

In fences that you cannot climb
In 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've traveled far
What have you found?

That there's no time
There's no time
To analyse
To think things through
To make sense

By candles in the city
You never looked so pretty
Through power cuts 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
Well 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 a wishing well, wake up
You just move your hands upon the clock

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

Black Swan

What will grow crooked, you can't make straight
It's the price that you've gotta pay
Do yourself a favor and pack your 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 bitumen
You have tried your best to please everyone
But it just isn't happening
No, it just isn't happening

And that is fucked up, fucked up
Well, this is fucked up, fucked up
This is your blind spot, blind spot
It should be obvious, but it's not

You cannot kick-start a dead horse
You just cross yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
'Cause I'm right here and I'm today
With your fingers you can touch me

I am your black swan, black swan
(But I made it to the top, but I made it to the top)
And this is fucked up, fucked up
(But I made it to the top, but I made it to the top)

We are black swans, black swans
(But I made it to the top, but I made it to the top)
And for spare parts, we're broken up
(But I made it to the top, but I made it to the top)

You are fucked up, fucked up
This is fucked up, fucked up
We are black swans, black swans
And for spare parts, we're 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've 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 passed through me
I thought there was this big connection
I only got my name, I only got this situation
I just need a number and location

Without appropriate papers or permissions
I'm known to bite in tight situations
And as 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

The wall keeps telling me
Hey hey, hey hey, hey hey
The devil may
Hey hey, hey hey, hey hey

You are a fool, you are a fool
For sticking 'round, for sticking 'round
Yeah, you are a fool, you are a fool
For sticking 'round, for sticking 'round

I've done every trick in the book
I tried to look in you
Every trick in the book
Well, how come I look?

No one can undress your elliptical caress
Don't look into my eyes
'Cause you're desperately in love
In love, in love

Oh, 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 twiggling worm inside
Devours from the inside out
No more talk about the old days
It's time for something great

Want you to get up
And make it work

So many allies, so many allies
So many allies, so many allies
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 allies, so many allies
So many allies, so many allies
So feel the love come off of them
And take me in your arms

I wanna get up
And make it work
Want you to get up
And make it work

Hey, it'll be okay

And It Rained All Night

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

Oh, 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 tock goes the pendulum
On the old grandfather clock

I
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 out from the river

It's relentless, invisible, indefendable
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 but it doesn't come off the rug
Try to build a wall that is high enough
It's all boiling over
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 loved ones
Your loved ones

A normal conversation
A normal conversation
(You should have took me out when you had a chance)
(You should have took me out when you had a chance)

All the rooms renumbered
And losers turned away
Don't turn away
(You should have took me out when you had a chance)
Don't turn away
(You should have took me out when you had a chance)

There were ten in the bed
And the little one said
Roll over
There were ten in the bed
And the little one said

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
First you reel me out and 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?
Et cetera, et cetera
Facts for whatever
15 steps, then a sheer drop

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

Understand

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
Ooh

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
Ooh

Has the light gone out for you?
Because the light's gone out 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
Are for anybody else to see
Are for anybody else to see

I'm a lie

I've seen it coming

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 into phantoms
I follow to the edge of the earth
And fall off
Yeah, everybody leaves
If they get the chance
And this
Is my chance

I get eaten by the worms
And weird fishes
Picked over by the worms
And weird fishes
Weird fishes
Weird fishes

I, I hit the bottom
Hit the bottom and escape
Escape

Hit the bottom and escape

All I Need

Waiting in the wings
I'm an animal
Trapped in your hot car
I am all of 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 am in the middle of your picture
Lying in the reeds

It's all wrong
It's alright
It's alright
It's all wrong
It's alright
It's alright
It's all right

Faust Arp

One two three four

Wakey, wakey, rise and shine
It's on again, off again, on again
Watch me fall like dominoes in pretty patterns

Fingers in the blackbird pie
I'm tingling, tingling, tingling
It's what you feel, not what you ought to, what you ought to

Reasonable and sensible, dead from the neck up
I guess 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, not what you ought to, what you ought to

The elephant that's in the room is
Tumbling, tumbling, tumbling
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 of that stuff
There's no real reason

You've got a head full of feathers
You got melted to butter

I just want to be your lover
No matter how it ends

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

The infrastructure will collapse
From 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

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 favorite 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
They 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're 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 sawed 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 you're 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 a light you can feel it on your back
A light and you can feel it on your back
Your jigsaw falling into place

Videotape

When I'm at the pearly gates
This'll 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
On videotape

This is my way of saying goodbye
'Cause 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

Open your mouth wide
A universal sigh
And while the ocean blooms
It's what keeps me alive
"So why does it still hurt?"
Don't blow your mind with why

I'm moving out of orbit

Turning in somersaults
(A giant turtle's eyes)
A giant turtle's eyes
(As jellyfish float by)
As jellyfish float by

Morning Mr. Magpie

You got some nerve coming here
You got some nerve coming here
You stole it off
Give it back

Good morning Mr. Magpie
How are we today?
Now you've stolen all the magic
And took my memory

You know you should
But you don't
You know you should
But you don't

Good morning Mr. Magpie
How are we today?
Now you've stolen all the magic

Little by Little

Turn to nasty now
The dark cell
The pit of my soul
The last one out of the box
The one who broke the spell

Little by little by hook or by crook
I'm such a tease and you're such a flirt
Once you've been hurt
you've been around enough

Little by little by hook or by crook
Never in earnest, never get judged
I don't know where it is, I should look

Your glue won't hold, the threat above
Recoiling with my love
The last one out of the box
The one who broke the seal

Obligations
Complications
Routines and schedules
Drug and kill you
Killing you

Little by little by hook or by crook
Never in earnest, never get judged
I dont' know where it is I should look

Little by little by hook or by crook
I am such a tease, and you're such a flirt

Lotus Flower

I would shape myself into your pocket
Invisible
Do what you want
Do what you want

I would shrink and I would disappear
I would slip into the groove
And cut me off
And cut me off

There's an empty space inside my heart
Where the weeds take root
So now I set you free
I'll set you free

Slowly we unfurl
As lotus flowers
'Cause all I want is the Moon upon a stick
Just to see what if
Just to see what is
I can't kick your habit
Just to feed your fast-ballooning head
Listen to your heart

We would shrink and then be quiet as mice
And while the cat is away
Do what we want
Do what we want

There's an empty space inside my heart
Where the weeds take root
So now I set you free
I'll set you free

'Cause all I want is the Moon upon a stick
Just to see what if
Just to see what is

Moonlights flow into my room
Slowly we unfurl
As lotus flowers
'Cause all I want is the Moon upon a stick
I dance around the pit
The darkness is beneath
I can't kick your habit
Just to feed your fast-ballooning head
Listen to your heart

And innocent

The water's clear
And innocent

Separator

It's like I'm falling out of bed
From a long and vivid dream
The sweetest flowered fruits are hanging from a tree
Falling off a giant bird that's been carrying me
It's like I'm falling out of bed from a long and vivid dream

Just exactly as I remember
Every word
Every gesture
I've my heart in my mouth

Like I'm falling out of bed
From a long and vivid dream
Finally I'm free of all the weight I've been carrying

As that woman blows my cover
In the eye of the beholder
I'm a fish now out of water

Falling off a giant bird that's been carrying me

I fell open
I laid under
At the tip out
that was just your number

I wanna slip it over
And get back under
And if you think this is over then
You're wrong
If you think this is over then
You're wrong

(Wake me up, wake me up)

If you think this is over then
You're wrong
If you think this is over then
You're wrong

(Wake me up, wake me up)

Like I'm falling out of bed from a long and vivid dream
Finally I'm free of all the weight I've been carrying

When at last you give in
When at last you give in

(Wake me up, wake me up)

Burn The Witch

Stay in the shadows
Cheer at the gallows
This is a round up

This is a low flying panic attack
Sing a song on the jukebox that goes

Burn the witch
Burn the witch
We know where you live

Red crosses on wooden doors
And if you float you burn
Loose talk around tables
Abandon all reason
Avoid all eye contact
Do not react
Shoot the messengers

This is a low flying panic attack
Sing the song of sixpence that goes

Burn the witch
Burn the witch
We know where you live....

Decks Dark

And into your life, there comes a darkness
There's a spacecraft blocking out the sky
There's nowhere to hide
You run to the back and you cover your ears
But it's the loudest sound you've ever heard
And all we trapped rag doll cloth people
We are helpless to resist
Into our darkest hour

But it was just a laugh, just a laugh
Just a laugh, just a laugh
Even at this angle
And so we crumble
A ten ton head, made of wet sand
Oh this dread circumference
You've gotta be kidding me
The grass grows over me
Your face in the glass, in the glass
It was just a laugh, just a laugh
It's whatever you say it is
We split infinity

And into your life, there comes a darkness
And a spacecraft blocking out the sky
And there's nowhere to hide
You run to the back and you cover your ears
But it's the loudest sound you've ever heard
Into your darkest hour

When you've had enough of me
When you've had enough of me
Sweet times
When you've had enough of me
When you've had enough of me
Sweet darling
Sweet times
Sweet times
Sweet times

So let me go upon my way
Born of a light
Born of a light
The wind rushing round my open heart
An open ravine
With my spirit light
Totally alive
And my spirit light
Through an open doorway
Across a street
To another life
And catching my reflection
In a window
Switching on a light
One I didn't know
Totally alive
Totally released

Waking, waking up from shutdown
From a thousand years of sleep
Yeah, you, you know what I mean

Standing on the edge of

Take me back again
Will you take me back
Take me back again

You really me-
Really mess-
You really messed up....
You really messed up this time....

Glass Eyes

Hey it's me
I - I just got off the train
A frightening place
The faces are concrete grey
And I'm wondering, should I turn around?
Buy another ticket
Panic is coming on strong
So cold, from the inside out
No great drama
Message coming in
In the oh-so-smug
Glassy eyed light of day
Glassy eyed light of day

Where the path trails off
And heads down the mountain
Through the dry bush
I don't know where it leads
And I don't really care
Where the path trails off
And heads down the mountain
Through the dry bush
I don't know where it leads
And I don't really care

I feel this love to the core
I feel this love to the core

Identikit

[Repeated background hook]
A moon shaped pool
Dancing clothes won't let me in
And now I know it's never gonna be oh me

The sweet-faced ones with nothing left inside
That we all can love, that we all can love, that we all can
Sweet-faced ones with nothing left inside
That we all can love, that we all can love, that we all can

But now I see you messing me around
I don't want to know, I don't want to know, I don't want
When I see you messing me around?
I don't want to know, I don't want to know, I don't want to know

Broken hearts make it rain....

The pieces of a ragdoll mankind
That we can create, that we can create, that we can
Pieces of a ragdoll mankind
That we can create, that we can create

But when I see you messing me around
I don't want to know, I don't want to know, I don't want
Now I see you messing me around
I don't want to know, I don't want to know, I don't want to know

The Numbers

It holds us like a phantom
It touches like a breeze
It shines its understanding
See the moon is smiling
Open on all channels
Ready to receive
Cause we're not at the mercy
Of your chimeras and spells
Your chimeras and spells
Mmmmhm
We are of the earth
To her we do return
The future is inside us
It's not somewhere else....

(One day at a time)
One day at a time

We call upon the people
People have this power
The numbers don't decide
The system is a lie
A river running dry
The wings of butterflies
And you may pour us away like soup
Like we're pretty broken flowers
We'll take back what is ours
Take back what is ours

One day at a time

Present Tense

This dance
This dance
Is like a weapon
Is like a weapon
Of self-defence
Of self-defence
Against the present
Against the present
The present tense
No I won't get heavy
No don't get heavy
Keep it light and
Keep it moving
I am doing
No harm
As my world
Comes crashing down
I'll be dancing
Freaking out
Deaf, dumb, and blind

In you I'm lost
In you I'm lost

I won't turn around
Or the penny drops
Won't stop now
Won't slack off
Or all this love
Will be in vain
To stop from falling
Down a mine
It's no one's business
But mine
Where all this love
Has been in vain

In you I'm lost....

Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor Rich Man Poor Man Beggar Man Thief

All the holes
At once
Are coming alive

Set free
Out of sight
And out of mind

The lonely and their prey

The one you light your fires to keep away
Crawling out upon its belly
And all you have to do is say
Yes

All the birds
Stay up
In the trees

All the fish
Swim down to the deep

The lonely and their prey

I am here
Come to me
Before it's too late

The one you light your fires to keep away
Is crawling out upon its belly
And all you have to do is say
Yes

True Love Waits

I'll drown my beliefs
To have your babies
I'll dress like your niece
And wash your swollen feet

Just don't leave
Don't leave

I'm not living
I'm just killing time
Your tiny hands
Your crazy kitten smile

Just don't leave
Don't leave

And true love waits
In haunted attics
And true love lives
On lollipops and crisps

Just don't leave
Don't leave....
