 (by Greg Prato)

Due to their penchant for androgynous attire/makeup and raw, punky guitar riffs, Placebo have been described by some as a glam version of Nirvana. The multinational band was formed by singer/guitarist Brian Molko (part Scottish and American descent, but raised in England) and Swedish bassist Stefan Olsdal. Both members had previously attended the same school in Luxembourg, but they didn't cross paths properly until 1994 in London, England. Briefly called Ashtray Heart and influenced by the likes of Sonic Youth, the Pixies, the Smashing Pumpkins, and the aforementioned Nirvana, they began filling the vacant drum spot with percussionists like Robert Schultzberg and Steve Hewitt (the latter being the group's only member of English origin). Although Molko and Olsdal preferred Hewitt as their main man (it was this lineup that recorded several early demos), Hewitt opted to return to his other band at the time, Breed. With Schultzberg back on board instead, Placebo signed a recording contract with Caroline Records and released a self-titled debut in 1996. The album was a surprise hit in the U.K., where singles like "Nancy Boy" and "Teenage Angst" became Top 40 hits. Meanwhile, the bandmates themselves became the toast of the British music weeklies and supported their debut by opening for such outfits as the reunited Sex Pistols,U2, and Weezer.

Despite the group's early success, Schultzberg wasn't seeing eye to eye with the other bandmembers, who by this point were able to convince Hewitt to rejoin the lineup, prompting Schultzberg's exit from the band in September 1996. One of Hewitt's first performances with Placebo upon returning proved to be a big one, as David Bowie -- a fan of the band, not to mention an influence on its sound -- personally invited the trio to play his 50th birthday bash at New York's Madison Square Garden in 1997. The following year, Placebo switched over to the major-label division of Caroline, Virgin Records, and issued Without You I'm Nothing in November. The album was another large seller in England and initially appeared to be the group's breakthrough in the U.S., where MTV embraced the album's leadoff single, "Pure Morning." Subsequent singles failed to match the success of that first song, but Without You I'm Nothing remained popular in England, where it eventually went platinum. Around the same time, Placebo recorded a cover of T. Rex's "20th Century Boy" for Velvet Goldmine, a movie in which the trio also appeared.

The relationship between Placebo and Bowie continued to blossom. Bowie made a special on-stage appearance with the band during a tour stop in New York, and both parties united for a re-recording of the title track from Without You I'm Nothing, which was issued as a single in 1999. Placebo's third release, Black Market Music, added hip-hop and disco elements to the band's tense rock sound. The album was released in Europe in 2000, followed several months later by a re-sequenced American version whose track list featured several additions, including the aforementioned Bowie version of "Without You I'm Nothing" and the band's cover of Depeche Mode's "I Feel You." The recording spawned additional U.K. hits such as "Taste in Men" and "Slave to the Wage."

In spring 2003, Placebo showcased a harder edge with the release of their fourth album, Sleeping with Ghosts. The album cracked the Top Ten in the U.K. and sold 1.4 million copies worldwide. Australian tour dates with Elbow and U.K. shows with Har Mar Superstar followed in 2004. Placebo's singles collection, Once More with Feeling: Singles 1996-2004, was released before the year's end. The 19-song compilation included their biggest U.K. hits and the new track "Twenty Years." Frenchman Dimitri Tikovoi (Goldfrapp, the Cranes), who had mixed selected songs on Once More with Feeling, also signed on to produce Placebo's fifth effort, 2006's Meds. One year later, after landing a spot on the Projekt Revolution tour alongside Linkin Park and My Chemical Romance, Virgin released the Extended Play '07 EP as a simple introduction for new fans to the band's past decade of music.

Steven Hewitt departed Placebo in the fall of 2007, and the band left its longtime home of EMI/Virgin one year later. With new drummer Steve Forrest now on board, the band recorded Battle for the Sun and released it during the summer of 2009. A box set of the band's work for EMI, The Hut Recordings, was released the same day, and an extensive tour kept the guys busy for another year. For fans who couldn't make the shows, Placebo also issued a live mini-album, Live at La Cigale, whose songs were taken from a 2006 performance in Paris. The band returned in 2009 with its sixth studio album, Battle for the Sun, which was produced by Grammy winner David Bottrill (dEUS, Silverchair, Muse). In 2010 Molko and Olsdal announced they had been working on new material, which culminated in the release of the mini-album B3 EP two years later. In 2013 Placebo delivered their seventh studio album, the Adam Noble-produced Loud Like Love.

Placebo

Come home

Stuck between the do or die
I feel emaciated
Hard to breathe I try and try
I'll get asphyxiated
Swinging from the tallest height
With nothing left to hold on to

Every sky is blue,
But not for me and you,
Come home come home,
Come home come home.

Glass and petrol vodka gin
It feels like breathing methane
Throw yourself from skin to skin
And still it doesn't dull the pain
Vanish like a lipstick trace
It always blows me away.

Every cloud is grey,
Dreams of yesterday,
Come home, come home,
Come home, come home
Come home, come home,
Come home, come home

Always goes against the grain
And I can try and deny it
Give a monkey half a brain
And still he's bound to fry it
Now the happening scene is dead
I used to want to be there too

Every sky is blue,
But not for me and you,
Come home, come home,
Come home, come home
Come home, come home,
Come home, come home

Teenage angst

Shine the headlight
Straight into my eyes
Like the roadkill
I'm paralysed
You see through my disguise

At the drive-in
Double feature
Pull the lever
Break the fever
And say your last goodbye

Since I was born I started to decay
Now nothing ever ever goes my way

One fluid gesture
Like stepping back in time
Trapped in amber
Petrified
And still not satisfied

Airs and social graces
Elocution so divine
I'll stick to my needle
And my favourite waste of time
Both spineless and sublime

Since I was born I started to decay
Now nothing ever ever goes my way

Bionic

Harder faster
Forever after
Harder faster
Forever after
Harder faster
Forever after
Forever after.

None of you can make the grade
None of you can make the grade
None of you can make the grade
None of you can make the grade.

Harder faster
Forever after
Harder faster
Forever after
Harder faster
Forever after
Forever after.

None of you can make the grade
None of you can make the grade
None of you can make the grade
None of you can make the grade.

36 degrees

We were tight
But it falls apart
As silver turns to blue
Waxing with the candlelight
And burning just for you
Allocate your sentiment
And stick it in a box
I've never been an extrovert
But i'm still breathing

Someone tried to do me ache
Someone tried to do me ache
Someone tried to do me ache
It's what i'm afraid of
Someone tried to do me ache
It's what i'm afraid of

With hindsight
I was more than blind
Lost without a clue
Thought I was getting carat gold
And what I got was you
Stuck inside the circumstances
Lonely at the top
I've always been an introvert
Happily bleeding

Someone tried to do me ache
Someone tried to do me ache
Someone tried to do me ache
It's what i'm afraid of
Someone tried to do me ache
It's what i'm afraid of

Four, seven, two, three, nine, eight, five
I gotta breathe to stay alive
And one, four, two, nine, seven, eight
Feels like i'm gonna suffocate
Fourteen, sixteen, twenty-two
This skin that turns to blister blue
Shoulders toes and knees
I'm Thirty six degrees
Shoulders toes and knees
I'm Thirty six degrees
Shoulders toes and knees
I'm Thirty six degrees
Shoulders toes and knees
I'm Thirty six degrees

Hang on to your IQ

Chinese masseuse
Comes between us
Talks in haikus
Plastic venus
Got a headrush
In her pocket
Two rubbers two lubes
And a silver rocket.

Hang on hang on,
To your iq to your id,
Hang on hang on,
To your iq to your id.

I'm lonely, I'm lonely
I'm lonely, I'm lonely

Every morning
My eyes will open wide
I gotta get high
Before i go outside
Roll another
For breakfast
Burning clouds around
And in my solar plexus

Hang on hang on,
To your iq to your id,
Hang on hang on,
To your iq to your id.

I'm lonely, I'm lonely
I'm lonely, I'm lonely

Legs eleven
Makes me stay up late
Two fat ladies on my back
And now it's 88
I'm a fool
Whose tool is small
It's so miniscule
It's no tool at all

Hang on hang on,
To your iq to your id,
Hang on hang on,
To your iq to your id.

I'm lonely, I'm lonely
I'm lonely, I'm lonely
Oh

Nancy boy

Alcoholic kind of mood,
Lose my clothes,
Lose my lube,
Cruising for a piece of fun,
Looking out for number one,
Different partner every night,
So narcotic outta sight,
What a gas,
What a beautiful ass !

And it all breaks down at the role reversal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me,
And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me.

Kind of buzz that lasts for days,
Had some help from insect ways,
Comes across all shy and coy,
Just another nancy boy,
Woman man or modern monkey,
Just another happy junkie,
Fifty pounds,
Press my button,
Going down.

And it all breaks down at the role reversal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me,
And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me.

Does his makeup in his room
Douse himself with cheap perfume
Eyeholes in a paper bag
Greatest lay i ever had
Kind of guy who mates for life
Gotta help him find a wife
We're a couple
When our bodies double

And it all breaks down at the role reversal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me,
And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me.

And it all breaks down at the role reversal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me,
And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me.

I know

I know, you love the song but not the singer,
I know, you've got me wrapped around your finger,
I know, you want the sin without the sinner,
I know, I know.

I know, the past will catch you up as you run faster,
I know, the last in line is always called a bastard,
I know, the past will catch you up as you run faster,
I know, I know.

I know, you cut me loose from contradiction,
I know, I'm all wrapped up in sweet attrition,
I know, It's asking for your benediction,
I know, I know.

I know, the past will catch you up as you run faster,
I know, the last in line is always called a bastard,
I know, the past will catch you up as you run faster,
I know, I know.

I know, the past will catch you up as you run faster,
I know, the last in line is always called a bastard,
I know, the past will catch you up as you run faster,
I know, I know.

Bruise pristine

The means are right for taking
Fade to grey
Trying to be ruthless
In the face of beauty
In this matrix
It's plain to see
It's either you or me

Bruise
Pristine
Serene
We were born to lose

Cast a line with a velvet glove
Reading like an open book
In the hands of love
In this matrix
It's plain to see
It's either you or me

Bruise,
Pristine,
Serene,
We were born to lose.

Lady of the flowers

'Scuse me
I apologize
He likes your attitude
He tries it on for size
He spends the afternoon
Between your thighs
How's that for gratitude
I apologize

It seemed to last for hours
It seemed to last for days
This lady of the flowers
And her hypnotic gaze

'Scuse me
I apologize
She's got vacuum cleaner eyes that
Suck you in
She's got magazines
Full of hair pies
'Scuse me
I apologize

It seemed to last for hours
It seemed to last for days
This lady of the flowers
And her hypnotic gaze

She wears her tears on her blouse
Confused and racked with self-doubt
She stole the keys to my house
And then she locked herself out

Without You I'm Nothing

Pure morning

A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend with weed is better
A friend with breast and all the rest
A friend who's dressed in leather

A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend who'll tease is better
Our thoughts compressed
Which makes us blessed
And makes for stormy weather

A friend in need's a friend indeed
My Japanese is better
And when she's pressed she will undress
And then she's boxing clever

A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend who bleeds is better
My friend confessed she passed the test
And we will never sever

Day's dawning, skins crawling
Day's dawning, skins crawling
Day's dawning, skins crawling
Pure morning

A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend who'll tease is better

Ask for answers

Time to pass you to the test
Hanging on my lover's breath
Always coming second best
Pictures of my lover's chest

Get through
This night
There are no second chances

This time
I might
To ask the sea for answers

Always falling to the floor
Softer than it was before.
Dog boy, media whore
It's who the hell you take me for.

Give up
This fight
There are no second chances

This time
I might
To ask the sea for answers

These bonds are shackle free
Wrapped in lust and lunacy
Tiny touch of jealousy
These bonds are shackle free

Get through
This night
There are no second chances

This time
I might
To ask the sea for answers

These bonds are shackle free
These bonds are shackle free
These bonds are shackle free

Get through
This
There are no second chances

This time, this
To ask the sea for answers

Without you I'm nothing

Strange infatuation seems to grace the evening tide
I'll take it by your side
Such imagination seems to help the feeling slide
I'll take it by your side
Instant correlation sucks and breeds a pack of lies
I'll take it by your side
Over saturation curls the skin and tans the hide
I'll take it by your side

Tick, tock x3
Tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tock

I'm unclean a libertine
And every time you vent your spleen
I seem to lose the power of speech
You're slipping slowly from my reach
You grow me like an evergreen
You've never seen the lonely me at all

I...
Take the plan, spin it sideways
I...
Fall

Without you, I'm nothing
Without you, I'm nothing
Without you, I'm nothing

Take the plan, spin it sideways
Without you, I'm nothing at all

Allergic (To Thoughts of Mother Earth)

Any means in your horizon
Heaven in a tourniquet
The afterlife to keep your eyes on
Bitter pill you take today
With expert levitation forward
Polished to the nth degree
It takes it's smile from every children
You take the beating

Any means in your horizon
Every mink walks two by two
We gamble to be born again
You know I never wanted to
With expert levitation forward
Polished to the nth degree
It takes it's smile from every children
You take the beating

The light divining, the light defining
The light divining, the light dividing

The crawl

It takes the pain away
That could not make you stay
It's way to broke to fix
No glue, no bag of tricks

Lay me down
The lie will unfurl
Lay me down to crawl

Your smile would make me sneeze
When we were siamese
Amazing grace in here
I'd pay to have you near

Lay me down
The lie will unfurl
Lay me down to crawl

Don't go and lose your face
At some strangers place
And don't forget to breathe
And pay before you leave

Lay me down
The lie will unfurl
Lay me down to crawl

Lay me down
The lie will unfurl
Lay me down to crawl

Every you every me

Sucker love is heaven sent
You pucker up, our passion's spent
My heart's a tart, your body's rent
My body's broken, yours is bent

Carve your name into my arm
Instead of stressed, I lie here charmed
'Cause there's nothing else to do
Every me and every you

Sucker love, a box I choose
No other box I choose to use
Another love I would abuse
No circumstances could excuse

In the shape of things to come.
Too much poison come undone
'Cause there's nothing else to do
Every me and every you
Every me and every you
Every me, me

Sucker love is known to swing
Prone to cling and waste these things
Pucker up for heavens sake
There's never been so much at stake

I serve my head up on a plate
It's only comfort, calling late
'Cause there's nothing else to do
Every me and every you
Every me and every you
Every me, me

Every me and every you,
Every me, me

Like the naked leads the blind
I know I'm selfish, I'm unkind
Sucker love I always find
Someone to bruise and leave behind

All alone in space and time
There's nothing here but what here's mine
Something borrowed, something blue

Every me and every you
Every me and every you
Every me, me

My Sweet Prince

Never thought you'd make me perspire
Never thought I'd do you the same
Never thought I'd fill with desire
Never thought I'd feel so ashamed

Me and the dragon can chase all the pain away
So before I end my day
Remember

My sweet prince, you are the one
My sweet prince, you are the one

Never thought I'd have to retire
Never thought I'd have to abstain
Never thought all this could back fire
Close up the hole in my vein

Me and my valuable friend
Can fix all the pain away
So before I end my day
Remember

My sweet prince
You are the one
My sweet prince
You are the one X5

Never thought I'd get any higher
Never thought you'd fuck with my brain
Never thought all this could expire
Never thought you'd go break the chain

Me and you baby
Still flush all the pain away
So before I end my day
Remember
My sweet prince
You are the one
My sweet prince
You are the one X9
My sweet prince
My sweet prince

Summer's gone

Cue to your face so forsaken
Crushed by the way that you cry
Cue to your face so forsaken
What a surprise

You try to break the mould
Before you get too old
You try to break the mould
Before you die

Cue to your heart that is racing
Stung by the look in your eye
Cue to your heart that is racing
What a surprise

You try to break the mould
Before you get too old
You try to break the mould
Before you die

Cue your face so forsaken
Crushed by the way that you cry
Cue your face so forsaken
Say goodbye

Sing for your lover
Like blood from a stone
Sing for your lover
Who's waiting at home
If you sing when youre high
And you're dry as a bone
Then you must realize
That you're never alone
And you'll sing with the dead instead

You try and break the mould,
Before you get too old
You try and break the mould,
Before you die

Sing for your lover
Like blood from a stone
Sing for your lover
Who's waiting at home
If you sing when youre high
And youre dry as a bone
Then you must realize
That you're never alone
And you'll sing with the dead instead

Scared of girls

An introverted kind of soul
The earth did open
Swallow whole

Careening X4

Her next of kin who lived in sin
Was asking God to let her in

Careening X4

I'm a man, a liar
Guaranteed in your bed
I gotta place it on the rack
Got a place inside it X3

An extroverted kinda girl
Did tour the world with MC5

Careening X4

Her younger sister, had a blister
Where I kissed her on her thigh

Careening X4

I'm a man a liar
Guaranteed in your bed
I gotta place it on the rack
Got a place inside it

I'm a man a liar
Guaranteed in your bed
I gotta place it on the rack
Got a place inside it X3

I'm a man a liar
Guaranteed in your bed
I gotta place it on the rack
Got a place inside it

I'm a man a liar
Guaranteed in your bed
I gotta place it on the rack
I got a place inside it

I'm a man a liar
Guaranteed in your bed
I gotta place it on the rack
Got a place inside it X3

Burger Queen

Slightly bemused by his lack of direction
Hey you, hey you
Came to this world by caesarean section
Hey you, hey you
Chooses his clothes to match his pallid complexion
Hey you, hey you
Now it takes him all day just to get an erection
Hey you

Things aren't what they seem
Makes no sense at all
Things aren't what they seem
Makes no sense at all

Goes out to cruise and to meet his connection
Hey you, hey you
He never scores he just gets an infection
Hey you, hey you
He dreams of a place with a better selection
Hey you, hey you
Still it takes him all day just to get an erection

Hey you
Things aren't what they seem
Makes no sense at all
Things aren't what they seem
Makes no sense at all
Things aren't what they seem
Makes no sense at all
Things aren't what they seem

He's a Burger Queen

Slightly bemused by the total rejection
Hey you, hey you
Came to this world by caesarean section

Hey you, hey you
Dreams of a face that is pure perfection
Hey you

Things aren't what they seem

Evil dildo

(The voices you hear were taken from Brian's answer machine)

Hey motherfucker, I'm after you. I know where you live.

I will fuck you up the ass and I will sneak into your room and cut your cock off
And stuff it in my mouth and chew it up with my little teeth.

Taste In Men

Come back to me awhile
Change your style again
Come back to me awhile
Change your taste in men
It's been this way since christmas day
Dazzled, doused in gin
Change your taste in men

Come back to me awhile
Change your style again
Come back to me awhile
Change your taste in men

I'm killing time on valentine's
Waiting for the day to end
Change your taste in men

Come back to me awhile
Change your style again
Come back to me awhile
Change your taste in men

It's been this way since christmas day
Dazzled, doused in gin
Change your taste in men

Change your taste in men X8

Days before You Came

Days before you came
Freezing cold and empty
Towns that changed their name
And a horn of plenty

Days before you came
Counting breaths inside me 
Even crack cocaine
Couldn't start to hide me

Won't you join me now?
Baby's looking torn and frayed
Join the masquerade
Join the masquerade

Won't you join me now?
Baby's looking to get laid
Join the masquerade
Join the masquerade.

Days before you came
It always seemed enticing
To be naked and profane
There is no denying

Days before you came
Thunderbolts and lightning
Each day a brand new vein
Each tourniquet colliding

Didn't want you anyway X4

Won't you join me now?
Baby's looking torn and frayed
Join the masquerade
Join the masquerade

Won't you join me now?
Baby's looking to get laid
Join the masquerade
Join the masquerade

Days before you came
Days before you came
Days before you came
Days before you

Days before you came
Days before you came
Days before you came
Days before you

Didn't want you anyway X4

Special K

Coming up beyond belief
On this coronary thief

More than just a leitmotiv
More chaotic, no relief

I'll describe the way I feel
Weeping wounds that never heal

Can the savior be for real?
Or are you just my seventh seal?

No hesitation, no delay
You come on just like special K
Just like I swallowed half my stash
I never ever wanna crash
No hesitation, no delay
You come on just like special K
Now you're back with dope demand
I'm on sinking sand

Gravity, no escaping
Gravity
Gravity
No escaping
Not for free
I fall down
Hit the ground
Make a heavy sound
Every time
You seem to come around

I'll describe the way I feel
You're my new Achille's heel

Can the savior be for real?
Or are you just my seventh seal?

No hesitation
No delay
You come on just like special K
Just like I swallowed half my stash
I never ever want to crash
No hesitation
No delay
You come on just like special K
Now you're back with dope demand
I'm on sinking sand

Gravity
No escaping gravity
Gravity
No escaping
Not for free
I fall down
Hit the ground
Make a heavy sound
Every time
You seem to come around

No escaping gravity
No escaping gravity
No escaping gravity
No escaping gravity
Gravity X4

Spite & malice

Ahaha revolution
Dope guns fucking in the streets
Revolution
Dope guns fucking in the streets

Aces take your time
Queens are left for dead
Jacks can stand in line
And touch themselves instead
Aces take your pity
And keep it warm in bed
Aces take your time

Cut the deck
The queens left for dead
Soft and wet scarf tied to the bed
Jack is all tragic when he's stands alone
Feelin' demonic harmonic
In a no go zone
You look well suited
Like you came to win
Lust spite and malice
Your degrees of sin
Cruisin' for pity
And looking pretty as fuck
Ace take your chances
Queen wish you luck

Aces take your time
Draw your final breath
Jacks are feelin fine
They've clubbed themselves to death
Aces take your pity
You sleep with it instead
Aces take your time

You can play your card
I'll hold onto mine
Tied up in the reasons
Ace take your time
Looks turn to lovers
Flames into fires
Jack loves his tragedy
Queen her desires
You look well suited like you came to win
Lust spite and malice
Your degrees of sin
Wrap me in your trauma
And I may just give you mine
Queen take your chances
Aces take your time

Dope guns fucking in the street
Everything will blow tonight
Revolution
Dope guns fucking in the street
Either friend or foe tonight

Revolution
Dope guns fucking in the street

Cut the deck
The queens left for dead
Soft and wet scarf tied to the bed
Jack is all tragic when he's stands alone
Feelin' demonic harmonic
In a no go zone
You look well suited
Like you came to win
Lust spite and malice
Your degrees of sin
Cruisin' for pity
And looking pretty as fuck
Ace take your chances
Queen wish you luck

Dope guns fucking in the street
Everything will blow tonight

Black-Eyed

I was never faithful
And I was never one to trust
Bordelining schizo
And guaranteed to cause a fuss

I was never loyal
Except to my own pleasure zone
I'm forever black-eyed
A product of a broken home

I was never faithful
And I was never one to trust
Bordeline bipolar
Forever biting on your nuts

I was never grateful
That's why I spent my days alone
I'm forever black-eyed
A product of a broken home
Broken home

Black-eyed, black-eyed
Black-eyed, black-eyed
Black-eyed, black-eyed
Black-eyed, black-eyed

I was never faithful
And I was never one to trust
Borderlining schizo
And guaranteed to cause a fuss

I was never loyal
Except to my own pleasure zone
I'm forever black-eyed
A product of a broken home

Blue American

I wrote this novel just for you
It sounds pretentious but it's true
I wrote this novel just for you
That's why it's vulgar
That's why it's blue
And I say thank you
I say thank you

I wrote this novel just for Mom
For all the Mommy things she's done
For all the times she showed me wrong
For all the times she sang God's song
And I say thank you Mom
Hello Mom
Thank you Mom
Hi Mom

I read a book about Uncle Tom 
Where whitey bastard made a bomb
But now Ebonics rule our song
Those motherfuckers got it wrong
And I ask
Who is uncle Tom?
Who is uncle Tom?
Who is uncle Tom?
You are

I read a book about the self
Said I should get expensive help
Go fix my head
Create some wealth
Put my neurosis on the shelf

But I don't care for myself
I don't care for myself
I don't care for myself
I don't care

I wrote this novel just for you
I'm so pretentious
Yes it's true
I wrote this novel just for you
Just for you
Just for you 

Slave To The Wage

Run away from all your boredom
Run away from all your whoredom and wave
Your worries and cares
Goodbye

All it takes is one decision
A lot of guts, a little vision to wave
Your worries and cares
Goodbye

It's a maze for rats to try
It's a maze for rats to try
It's a race, a race for rats
A race for rats to die

It's a race, a race for rats
A race for rats to die

Sick and tired of Maggie's farm
She's a bitch with broken arms to wave
Your worries and cares
Goodbye

It's a maze for rats to try
It's a maze for rats to try
It's a race, a race for rats
A race for rats to die

It's a race, a race for rats
A race for rats to die

It's a race, a race for rats
A race for rats to die

It's a race, a race for rats
A race for rats to die

Burn away
Run away, run away
Run away, run away
Run away, run away
Run away, run away

Commercial For Levi

You're the one who's always choking Trojan
You're the one who's always bruised and broken
Sleep may be the enemy
But so is another line
It's a remedy
You should take more time

You're the one who's always choking Trojan
You're the one who's showers always golden
Spunk and bestiality well it's an Assisi lie
It's ahead of me, you should close your fly

I understand the fascination
The dream that comes alive at night
But if you don't change your situation
Then you'll die, you'll die, don't die, don't die
Please don't die

You're the one who's always choking Trojan
You're the one who's always bruised and broken
Drunk on immorality, valium and cherry wine
Coke and ecstasy, you're gonna blow your mind

I understand the fascination
I've even been there once or twice or more
But if you don't change your situation
Then you'll die, you'll die, don't die, don't die
Please don't die X4 

Haemoglobin

I was hanging from a tree
Unaccustomed to such violence
Jesus looking down on me
I'm prepared for one big silence

How'd I ever end up here
Must be through some lack of kindness
And it seemed to dawn on me
Haemoglobin is the key

Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heartbeat
Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heartbeat

At the time they cut me free
I was brimming with defiance
Doctors looking down on me
Breaking every law of science

How'd I ever end up here
A latent strain of color blindness
Then it seemed to dawn on me
Haemoglobin is the key

Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heartbeat
Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heartbeat

Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heartbeat
Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heartbeat

Now my feet don't touch the ground
Now my feet don't touch the ground, go
Now my feet don't touch the ground
Now my feet don't touch the ground

As they drag me to my feet
I was filled with incoherence
Theories of conspiracy
The whole world wants my disappearance

I'll go fighting nail and teeth
You've never seen such perseverance
Gonna make you scared of me
'Cause haemoglobin is the key

Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heartbeat
Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heart beat

Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heart beat
Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heart beat

Now my feet don't touch the ground
Now my feet don't touch the ground, go
Now my feet don't touch the ground
Now my feet don't touch the ground, go

Now my feet don't touch the ground
Now my feet don't touch the ground, go
Now my feet don't touch the ground
Now my feet don't touch the ground, go.

Narcoleptic

Slip and stumble at my first offences
It's not treason, it's no lie
You talk in paragraphs
I write my sentence
It's not treason, it's no lie

It seems a place for us to dream
It seems a place for us to dream

Crush and crumble under your defenses
It's not treason, it's no lie
You frame the photograph I sit on fences
Change your season, love can die

It seems a place for us to dream
It seems a place for us to dream
It seems a place for us to dream
It seems a place for us to dream

If we tear out the tumor
It's later, never sooner
If we tear out the tumor
It's later, never sooner

It seems a place for us to dream
It seems a place for us to dream

You'd better keep it in check
Or you'll end up a wreck
And you'll never wake up

You'd better keep it in check
Or you'll end up a wreck
And you'll never wake up

Wake up
Wake up
Wake up

It seems a place for us to dream
It seems a place for us to dream

You'd better keep it in check
Or you'll end up a wreck
And you'll never wake up

You'd better keep it in check
Or you'll end up a wreck
And you'll never wake up

You'd better keep it in check
Or you'll end up a wreck
And you'll never wake up

You'd better keep it in check
Or you'll end up a wreck
And you'll never wake up

Wake up

Peeping Tom

Careful not to fall
Have to climb your wall
'Cause you're the one who makes me feel much taller than you are 
I'm just a peeping tom
On my own for far too long
Problems with the booze
Nothing left to lose

I'm weightless
I'm bare
I'm faithless
I'm scared 

The face that fills the hole
Stole my broken soul
One that makes me seem to feel much taller than you are 
I'm just a peeping tom
On my own for far too long
Troubles with the gear
Nothing left to fear

I'm weightless
I'm bare
I'm faithless
I'm scared

I'm weightless
 I'm bare
I'm faithless
I'm scared

With every bet I lost
And every trick I tossed
You're still the one 
Who makes me feel much taller than you are
I'm just a peeping tom
On my own for far too long
Problems with the booze
Nothing left to lose

I'm weightless
I'm bare
I'm faithless
I'm scared

I'm weightless
I'm bare
I'm faithless
I'm scared

I'm weightless
I'm bare
I'm faithless
I'm scared

I'm scared
I'm scared
I'm scared
I'm scared

Black Market blood

Wasted face that swallowed time
With Armageddon crawling
She's insane, this friend of mine
And she's always bawling

Hear her calling
Hear her calling you
Hear her calling
Hear her calling you

There's a place within her mind
With rains already falling
She's insane, this friend of mine
And she's always bawling

Hear her calling
Hear her calling you
Hear her calling
Hear her calling you

She's preparing for the flood
The deluge and the sliding mud
She's preparing for the flood
Running on black market blood
Black market blood

Wasted face that swallowed time
With Armageddon crawling
She's insane, this friend of mine
And she's always bawling 

Hear her calling
Hear her calling you
Hear her calling
Hear her calling you

She's preparing for the flood
The deluge and the sliding mud
She's preparing for the flood
Running on black market blood

Black market blood
Black market blood
Black market blood

Sleeping With Ghosts

English summer rain

Always stays the same, nothing ever changes
English summer rain seems to last for ages
Always stays the same, nothing ever changes
English summer rain seems to last for ages

I'm in the basement, you're in the sky
I'm in the basement baby, drop on by
I'm in the basement, you're in the sky
I'm in the basement baby, drop on by

Always stays the same, nothing ever changes
English summer rain seems to last for ages
Always stays the same, nothing ever changes
English summer rain seems to last for ages

I'm in the basement, you're in the sky
I'm in the basement baby, drop on by
I'm in the basement, you're in the sky
I'm in the basement baby, drop on by

Hold your breath and count to ten
Then fall apart and start again
Hold your breath and count to ten
Start again, start again
Hold your breath and count to ten
Then fall apart and start again
Start again... (x13)

Always stays the same, nothing ever changes
English summer rain seems to last for ages
Always stays the same, nothing ever changes
English summer rain seems to last for ages

Hold your breath and count to ten
Then fall apart and start again
Hold your breath and count to ten
Start again, start again
Hold your breath and count to ten
Then fall apart and start again
Hold your breath and count to ten
And start again, and start again

Start again... (x16)

*** Thanx a lot to Seb & Ian & Alex for this one ***

*** In the Once More With Feelings tour, Brian added an extra lyrics in English Summer Rain
the lyrics are "stolen" from a song of Neil Young called "Like a Hurricane" ***

"Once I thought I saw you in a crowded hazy bar,
Dancing on the light from star to star.
Far across the moonbeam I know that's who you are,
I saw your brown eyes turning once to fire.

You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but I'm getting blown away.

*** In the Single Version of the song, Brian added an extra lyrics in English Summer Rain at the end :

I can't sleep without your breathing
And I can't breathe each time you're leaving
And I'll pray you won't stay away
And you come back to me some day"

*** Thanx a lot to Master Stroke & Kat for this one ***

This Picture

I hold an image of the ashtray girl
As the cigarette burns on my chest
I wrote a poem that described her world
That put my friendship to the test
And late at night
Whilst on all fours
She used to watch me kiss the floor
What's wrong with this picture?
What's wrong with this picture?

Farewell the ashtray girl
Forbidden snowflake
Beware this troubled world
Watch out for earthquakes
Goodbye to open sores
To broken semaphore
We know we miss her
We miss her picture

Sometimes it's faded
Disintegrated
For fear of growing old
Sometimes it's faded
Assassinated
For fear of growing old

Farewell the ashtray girl
Angelic fruitcake
Beware this troubled world
Control your intake
Goodbye to open sores
Goodbye and furthermore
We know we miss her
We miss her picture

Sometimes it's faded
Disintegrated
For fear of growing old
Sometimes it's faded
Assassinated
For fear of growing old

Hang on
Though we try
It's gone
Hang on
Though we try
It's gone

Sometimes it's faded
Disintegrated
For fear of growing old
Sometimes it's faded
Assassinated
For fear of growing old
Can't stop growing old...

*** Thanx a lot to Jennifer & Sophie & Ian & Lewis for this one ***

Sleeping with ghosts

The sea's evaporating
Though it comes as no surprise
These clouds we're seeing
They're explosions in the sky
It seems it's written
But we can't read between the line

Hush
It's okay
Dry your eye
Dry your eye
Soulmate dry your eye
Dry your eye
Soulmate dry your eye
Cause soulmates never die

This one world vision
Turns us into compromise
What good's religion
When it's each other we despise
Damn the government
Damn their killing
Damn their lies

Hush
It's okay
Dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Soulmate dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Soulmate dry your eyes
Cause soulmates never die

Soulmates never die
Never die
Soulmates never die
Never die...
Soulmates never die
Soulmates never die
Soulmates never die
Soulmates never die

The Bitter End

Since we're feeling so anaesthetized
In our comfort zone
Reminds me of the second time
That I followed you home

We're running out of alibis
On the second of May
Reminds me of the summer time
On this winters day

See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end

Every step we take that's synchronized
Every broken bone
Reminds me of the second time
That I followed you home

You shower me with lullabies
As you're walking away
Reminds me that it's killing time
On this fateful day

See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end

From the time we intercepted
Feels alot like suicide
Slow and sad, going sadder
Arise a sitting mine

(See you at the bitter end)

I love to see you run around
And i can see you now
Running to me
Arms wide out

(See you at the bitter end)

Reach inside
Come on just gotta reach inside
Heard your cry
Six months time
Six months time
Prepare the end

(See you at the bitter end)

*** Thanx a lot to Nikola & Ian & Loic & Alex for this one ***

Something Rotten

Down here
It seems we're here
I miss you something rotten
The stinks are here
It's guaranteed all is forgotten

Down here
Down here
It's clear that your uncut
Don't fear, don't fear
Keep all this forgotten

Face down, face down
Face down
I miss you something rotten
Face down, face down
This crown is broken rotten

Down here, down here
I know it's not, it's all forgotten
Down here, down here
Face down
I miss you something rotten

Down here, down here
It stinks
It stinks of something rotten
Don't fear, don't fear
Keep all this forgotten

There's something rotten down here
There's something rotten down here
There's something rotten down here
There's something rotten down here

There's something rotten down here
There's something rotten down here
There's something rotten down here
There's something rotten down here

Plasticine

Beauty lies inside the eye of another youthful dream
That doesn't sell its soul for self-esteem
That's not plasticine
Beauty lies inside desire and every wayward heart redeemed
That doesn't sell its soul for self-esteem
That's not plasticine

Don't forget to be the way you are (x4)

The only thing you can rely on is that you can't rely on anything
Don't go and sell your soul for self-esteem
Don't be plasticine

Don't forget to be the way you are (x4)
And don't forget to be the way you are (x4)
The way you are...

Special Needs

Remember me when you're the one that's silver screened
Remember me when you're the one you always dreamed
Remember me whenever noses start to bleed
Remember me, special needs

Just nineteen a sucker's dream
I guess I thought you had the flavor
Just nineteen, a dream obscene
With six months off for bad behavior

Remember me when you clinch your movie deal
Think of me stuck in my chair that has four wheels
Remember me through flash photography and screams
Remember me, special dreams

Just nineteen a sucker's dream
I guess I thought you had the flavor
Just nineteen a dream obscene
With six months off for bad behavior

Just nineteen a sucker's dream
I guess I thought you had the flavor
Just nineteen a dream obscene
With six months off for bad behavior

Remember me
Remember me

Just nineteen a sucker's dream
I guess I thought you had the flavor
Just nineteen a dream obscene
With six months off for bad behavior

Just nineteen a sucker's dream
I guess I thought you had the flavor
Just nineteen a dream obscene
With six months off for bad behavior

Remember me
Remember me

I'll Be Yours

I'll be your water bathing you clean
The liquid piece
I'll be your ether you'll breathe me in
You won't release
Well I've seen you suffer, I've seen you cry the whole night through
So I'll be your water bathing you clean
Liquid blue

I'll be your father, I'll be your mother,
I'll be your lover, I'll be yours x2

I'll be your liqour bathing your soul
Juice that's pure
And I'll be your anchor you'll never leave
Shores that cure
Well I've seen you suffer, I've seen you cry for days and days
So I'll be your liqour demons will drown
And float away

I'll be your father, I'll be your mother,
I'll be your lover, I'll be yours x3
Yours...

*** Thanx a lot to Ian for this one ***

Second sight

Walk away to save your face
You never were a genius
Walk away to save your face
You let it come between us
Walk away to save your face
You never were a genius
Walk away to save your face
You never were, you never were

Yes it's just the second night
But I would break backsides for you
Yes i know you're the jealous type
'Cause I'm cursed with second sight so

Walk away to save your face
You never were an actor
Walk away to save your face
Here comes the morning after
Walk away to save your face
You never were an actor
Walk away to save your face
You never were, you never were

Yes it's just the second night
But I would break backsides for you
Yes i know you're the jealous type
'Cause I'm cursed with second sight so (x3)

Third verse same as the first

Walk away to save your face
You never were a genius
Walk away to save your face
You let it come between us
Walk away to save your face
You never were a genius
Walk away to save your face
You never were, you never were

Yes it's just the second night
But I would break backsides for you
Yes i know you're the jealous type
'Cause I'm cursed with second sight so

Walk away (x 8)
(You never were...)

*** Thanx a lot to Jennifer & Ian & Jilly for this one ***

Protect me from what I want

It's the disease of the age
It's the disease that we crave
Alone at the end of the rave
We catch the last bus home

Corporate America wakes
Coffee republic and cakes
We open the latch on the gate
Of the hole that we call our home

Protect me from what I want...
Protect me protect me

Maybe we're victims of fate
Remember when we'd celebrate
We'd drink and get high until late
And now we're all alone

Wedding bells ain't gonna chime
With both of us guilty of crime
And both of us sentenced to time
And now we're all alone

Protect me from what I want...
Protect me protect me
Protect me from what I want...
Protect me protect me

Protect me from what I want...
Protect me protect me
Protect me from what I want...
Protect me protect me

*** Thanx a lot to Jennifer & Ian & Kit & Alex for this one ***

Centrefolds

Come on Balthazar I refuse to let you die
Come on fallen star I refuse to let you die
Cos it's wrong and i've been waiting far too long
It's wrong
I've been waiting far too long
For you to be...be...be...be...be mine
For you to be mine
Be mine
For you to be mine
And it's wrong i've been waiting far too long
It's wrong
I've been waiting far too long
For you to be...be...be...be...be

All the centrefolds that you can't afford
Have long since waved their last goodbyes
All the centrefolds that you can't afford
You've long sinced faded from their eyes
So be...be mine
So be...be mine

*** Thanx a lot to Ian & Thomas & Alex for this one ***

Meds

Meds

I was alone, falling free
Trying my best not to forget
What happened to us, what happened to me
What happened as I let it slip
I was confused by the powers that be
Forgetting names and faces
Passers by were looking at me
As if they could erase it

Baby, did you forget to take your meds
Baby, did you forget to take your meds

I was alone, staring over the ledge
Trying my best not to forget
All manner of joy, all manner of glee
And our one heroic pledge
How it mattered to us, How would it mattered to me
And the consequences
I was confused by the birds and the bees
Forgetting if I meant it

Baby, did you forget to take your meds
Baby, did you forget to take your meds
Baby, did you forget to take your meds
Baby, did you forget to take your meds

And the sex, the drugs, and the complications
And the sex, the drugs, and the complications
And the sex, the drugs, and the complications
And the sex, the drugs, and the complications

Baby, did you forget to take your meds
Baby, did you forget to take your meds
Baby, did you forget to take your meds
Baby, did you forget to take your meds
Baby, did you forget to take your meds
Baby, did you forget to take your meds

I was alone, falling free
Trying my best not to forget

Infra-red

One last thing before I shuffle off the planet
I will be the one to make you crawl
So I came down to wish you an unhappy birthday
Someone call the ambulance
There's gonna be an accident

I'm coming up on infra-red
There is no running that can hide you
Cause I can see in the dark
I'm coming up on infra-red
Forget your running
I will find you

One more thing before we start the final face-off
I will be the one to watch you fall
So I came down to crash and burn your beggar's banquet
Someone call the ambulance
There's gonna be an accident

I'm coming up on infra-red
There is no running that can hide you
Cause I can see in the dark
I'm coming up on infra-red
Forget your running
I will find you (I will find you)

[distorted singing]

Someone call the ambulance
There's gonna be an accident

I'm coming up on infra-red
There is no running that can hide you
Cause I can see in the dark
I'm coming up on infra-red
Forget your running
I will find you
Cause I can see in the dark
I'm coming up on infra-red
There is no running that can hide you
Cause I can see in the dark
I'm coming up on infra-red
Forget your running
I will find you
I'll find you
I'll find you

Drag

You're always ahead of the game
I drag behind
You never get caught in the rain
When I'm drenched to the bone every time
You're the first one to swim cross the Seine
I lag behind
You're always ahead of the game
While I drag behind

I drag behind
I drag behind
I drag behind
I drag behind

You're always ahead of the pack
I drag behind
You possess every trait that I lack
By coincidence or by design
You're the monkey I got on my back
That tells me to shine
You're always ahead of the pack
While I drag behind

I drag behind (x 8 )

You're always ahead of the rest
When I'm always on time
You got A's on your algebra tests
I failed and they kept me behind
I just gotta get off my chest
That I think you're divine
You're always ahead of the rest
While I drag behind

I drag behind (x 8 )

Space monkey

Space monkey in the place to be
Riding in a rocket to a planet of sound
Shooting the moon, playing dominoes in drag
An increase in population of a hundred percent

Space monkey in the place to be
With a chemical peel and a picture of Mary
Out on a limb in the carnival of me
Raising the temperature one hundred degrees

We're sown together
She's born mesmer
Beside astride her
I die inside her

Space monkey in the place to be
A mass of contradictions in a golden frame
Raising the roof in a calamity way
Completely meretricious of a poke in the eye

Space monkey in the place to be
Talk of the town with a Colombian rock
Out on a limb in the carnival of me
Raising the temperature one hundred degrees

We're sown together
She's born mesmer
Beside astride her
I die inside her
It's far too sacred
Don't ever fake it
And don't, and don't, and don't let me down

Like you let me down before
Like you let me down before

Space monkey in the place to be
With some free-association and a hole in her head
Out on a limb in the carnival of me
Raising the temperature one hundred degrees

We're sown together
She's born mesmer
Beside astride her
I die inside her
It's far too sacred
Don't ever fake it
And don't, and don't, and don't let me down

Like you let me down before
Like you let me down before
Like you let me down before
Like you let me down before

Follow the cops back home

The call to arms was never true,
Time to imbibe, here's to you,
I'll tell you stories bruised and blue,
Of drum machines and landslides.

Just one more round before we're through,
More psychedelic yuppie flu,
It's such a silly thing to do,
And now we're stuck on rewind..

Let's follow the cops back home,
Follow the cops back home,
Let's follow the cops back home,
And rob their houses.

The call to arms was never true,
Let's take a ride and push it through,
Suspended animation glue,
Blame it on apartheid,

Let's spend the night in Jimmy Choo's,
I'll give you coats and cheap shampoo,
I'll give you nothing else to do,
And now we're stuck on rewind

Let's follow the cops back home,
Follow the cops back home,
Let's follow the cops back home,
And Rob their houses

Let's follow the cops back home
Follow the cops back home
Let's follow the cops back home
And rob their houses

The call to arms was never true,
I'm medicated, how are you?
Let's take a dive swim right through,
Sophisticated points of view

Let's follow the cops back home
Follow the cops back home
Let's follow the cops back home
And Rob their houses

Let's follow the cops back home
Follow the cops back home
Let's follow the cops back home
And rob their houses

Post blue

It's in the water baby
It's in the pills that bring you down
It's in the water baby
It's in your bag of golden brown
It's in the water baby
It's in your frequency
It's in the water baby
It's between you and me

It's in the water baby
It's in the pills that pick you up
It's in the water baby
It's in the special way we fuck
It's in the water baby
It's in your family tree
It's in the water baby
It's between you and me

Bite the hand that feeds
Tap the vein that bleeds
Down on my bended knees

I break the back of love for you
I break the back of love for you

I break the back of love for you
I break the back of love for you

It's in the water baby
It's in the pills that bring you down
It's in the water baby
It's in your bag of golden brown
It's in the water baby
It's in your frequency
It's in the water baby
It's between you and me

Bite the hand that feeds
Tap the vein that bleeds
Down on my bended knees

I break the back of love for you
I break the back of love for you

I break the back of love for you
I break the back of love for you

I break the back of love for you
I break the back of love for you

I break the back of love for you
I break the back of love for you

Because I Want You

Fall into you, is all I seem to do
When I hit the bottle
‘Cause I'm afraid to be alone

Tear us in two, is all it seems to do
As the anger fades
This house is no longer a home

Don't give up on the dream,
Don't give up on the wanting
And everything that's true
Don't give up on the dream,
Don't give up on the wanting

Because I want you too
Because I want you too
Because I want you too
Because I want you
Because I want you

Stumble into you, is all I ever do
My memory's hazy
And I'm afraid to be alone

Tear us in two, is all it's gonna do
As the headache fades
This house is no longer a home

Don't give up on the dream,
Don't give up on the wanting
And everything that's true
Don't give up on the dream,
Don't give up on the wanting

Because I want you too
Because I want you too
Because I want you too
Because I want you
Because I want you

Because I want you too
Because I want you too
Because I want you
Because I want you

Fall into you is all I ever do!
When I hit the bottle
‘Cause I'm afraid to be alone

Tear us in two
Tear us in two
Tear us in two

Because I want you too
Because I want you too
Because I want you
Because I want you
Because I want you too
Because I want you too
Because I want you
Because I want you

Blind

If I could tear you from the ceiling
And guarantee a source divine
Rid you of possessions fleeting
Remain your funny valentine

Don't go and leave me
And please don't drive me blind
Don't go and leave me
And please don't drive me blind

If I could tear you from the ceiling
I know best have tried
I'd fill your every breath with meaning
And find a place we both could hide

Don't go and leave me
And please don't drive me blind
Don't go and leave me
And please don't drive me blind
You don't believe me
But you do this every time
Please don't drive me blind
Please don't drive me blind

I know you're broken
I know you're broken
I know you're broken

If I could tear you from the ceiling
I'd freeze us both in time
And find a brand new way of seeing
Your eyes forever glued to mine

Don't go and leave me
And please don't drive me blind
Don't go and leave me
And please don't drive me blind

And please don't drive me blind
And please don't drive me blind
And please don't drive me blind
And please don't drive me blind

I know you're broken
I know you're broken
I know you're broken

Pierrot the clown

Leave me dreaming on the bed
See you right back here tomorrow
For the next round
Keep this scene inside your head
As the bruises turn to yellow
The swelling goes down

And if you're ever around
In the city or the suburbs
Of this town
Be sure to come around
I'll be wallowing in sorrow
Wearing a frown
Like Pierrot the clown

Saw you crashing round the bay
Never seen you act so shallow
Or look so brown
Remember all the things you'd say
How your promises ran hollow
As you threw me to the ground

And if you're ever around
In the backstreets or the alleys
Of this town
Be sure to come around
I'll be wallowing in pity
Wearing a frown
Like Pierrot the clown

When I dream, I dream your lips
When I dream, I dream your kiss
When I dream, I dream your fists
Your fists, your fists

Leave me bleeding on the bed
See you right back here tomorrow
For the next round
Keep this scene inside your head
As the bruises turn to yellow
The swelling goes down

And if you're ever around
In the city or the suburbs
Of this town,
Be sure to come around,
I'll be wallowing in sorrow
Wearing a frown
Like Pierrot the clown

Like Pierrot the clown
Like Pierrot the clown
Like Pierrot the clown
Like Pierrot the clown

Broken promise

We'll rise above this
We'll cry about this
As we live and learn
A broken promise
I was not honest
Now I watch as tables turn
And you're singing

I'll wait my turn to tear inside you
Watch you burn
I'll wait my turn
I'll wait my turn

I'll cry about this and hide my cuckold eyes
As you come off all concerned
I'll find no solace in your poor apology
In your regret that sounds absurd
Keep singing

I'll wait my turn to tear inside you
Watch you burn
I'll wait my turn to terrorize you
Watch you burn
I'll wait my turn
I'll wait my turn

A promise is a promise
A promise is a promise

I'll wait my turn to tear inside you
Watch you burn
I'll wait my turn
I'll wait my turn

A broken promise
You were not honest
I'll bide my time
I'll wait my turn

One of a kind

On top of the world you get nothing done
Talk is cold and burns like the sun
Can't you see these skies are breaking
Cause the top of the word is where I'm from
The back of the class is where I was
Keeping quiet playing dumb
Can't you see these skies are breaking
Cause the back of the class is where I'm from

And I am one
I am
I am one
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am

I'm on a race and it's killing time
I don't need yours i'll keep it with mine
Can't you see these skies are breaking
Cause I'm on a race and I'm doing fine, thank you
Two of a kind no one home
I'm in a crowd and I'm still alone
Can't you see the skies are breaking
Cause one of a kind is all I own

I am one
I am
I am one
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am

Out of the womb and into the void
I wanna try but I get annoyed
Can't you see these skies are breaking
Cause I'm out of the womb and into the void

I am one,
I am,
I am one,
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am

On top of the world you get nothing done

In the cold light of morning

In the cold light of morning
While everyone's yawning
You're high
In the cold light of morning
The party gets boring
You're high
As your skin starts a scratchin'
Wave yesterday's action goodbye
Forget past indiscretions and stolen possessions
You're high

In the cold light

In the cold light of morning
While everyone's yawning
You're high
In the cold light of morning
You're drunksick from whoring
And high
Staring back from the mirror's a face that you don't recognise
It's a loser, a sinner, a cock in a dildo's disguise

In the cold light

Tomorrow
Tomorrow
Tomorrow

As your skin starts a scratchin'
Wave yesterdays action goodbye
Forget past indiscretions and stolen possessions
You're high
In the cold light of day
Tomorrow's only a kettle whistle,
Whistle,
Whistle,
Whistle,
Whistle,
Whistle,
Whistle,
Whistle,
Whistle away
In the cold light of day

Song To Say Goodbye

You are one of God's mistakes
You crying, tragic waste of skin
I'm well aware of how it aches
And you still won't let me in
Now I'm breaking down your door
To try and save your swollen face
Though I don't like you anymore
You lying, trying waste of space

Before our innocence was lost
You were always one of those
Blessed with lucky sevens
And a voice that made me cry
My Oh My

You were mother nature's son
Someone to whom I could relate
Your needle and your damage done
Remains a sordid twist of fate
Now I'm trying to wake you up
To pull you from the liquid sky
‘Cause if I don't we'll both end up
With just your songs to say goodbye
My Oh My

A song to say goodbye
A song to say goodbye
A song to say

Before our innocence was lost
You were always one of those
Blessed with lucky sevens
And a voice that made me cry

It's a song to say goodbye

Battle For The Sun

Kitty Litter

The way you're dancing
Makes me come alive
Makes me shiver and perspire
Your surreptitious glancing
The way you crack a smile
You really start a fire

So move closer
I wanna feel your touch
So come over
Come on

Love of mine
This fortress in our heart
Feels much weaker
Now we're apart

Love of mine
This fortress in our heart
Comes crashing down

I need a change of skin
I need a change

The way you're moving
Hips from side to side
Makes you all that I desire

Bathsheba of my choosing
I'm so unsatisfied
And you've got what I require

So move closer
I gotta feel your touch
So come over
So come on

So move closer
I gotta feel your touch
So come over
Come on

Love of mine
This fortress in our heart
Feels much weaker
Now we're apart

Love of mine
This fortress in our heart
Comes crashing down

I need a change of skin
I need a change
I need a change, I need a change of skin
I need a change, I need a change of skin
I need a change, I need a change of skin
I need a change, I need a change of skin

Love of mine
This fortress in our heart
Feels much weaker
Now we're apart

Love of mine
This fortress in our heart
Comes crashing down

Ashtray Heart

Cenicero, cenicero
Mi Corazón de cenicero
Cenicero, cenicero
Mi Corazón de cenicero

You are the birth and you are waste
You are the one who took my place
You took a jump into forever
A leap of faith I could not take

And it was a leap of faith I could not take
A promise that I could not make
A leap of faith I could not take
A promise that I could not make

Cenicero, cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi Corazón de cenicero
My ashtray heart
Cenicero, cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi Corazón de cenicero

We were alone before we met
No more forlorn than one could get
How could we know we have found treasure
How sinister and how correct

And it was a leap of faith I could not take
A promise that I could not make
A leap of faith I could not take
A promise that I could not make

Cenicero, cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi Corazón de cenicero
My ashtray heart

Cenicero, cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi Corazón de cenicero
Cenicero, cenicero
My ashtray heart
Mi Corazón de cenicero
My ashtray heart
Cenicero, cenicero
My ashtray heart
Corazón cenicero

I tore the muscle from your chest
And used it to stub out cigarettes
I listened to your screams of pleasure
And I watch the bed sheets turn blood red

Cenicero, cenicero
My ashtray heart
Corazón cenicero
My ashtray heart
Cenicero, cenicero
My ashtray heart
Corazón cenicero...

Battle For The Sun

I, I, I will battle for the sun, sun, sun
And I, I, I won't stop until I'm done, done, done
You, you, you are getting in the way, way, way
And I, I, I have nothing left to say, say, say

I, I, I, I, I will brush off all the dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt
And I, I, I, I, I will pretend it didn't hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt, hurt
And you, you, you, you, you are a black a heavy weight, weight, weight, weight, weight, weight, weight
And I, I, I, I, I will not participate, pate, pate, pate, pate, pate, pate, pate, pate

Dream brother
My killer
My lover
Dream brother
My killer
My lover

I, I, I will battle for the sun, sun, sun, sun
'Cause I, I, I have stared down the barrel of a gun, gun, gun, gun, gun, gun, gun, no fun
You, you, you, you, you are a cheap and nasty fake, fake, fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
And I, I, I, I, I am the bones you couldn't break, break, break, break, break, break, break, break

Dream brother
My killer
My lover
Dream brother

Dream brother
My killer

For What It's Worth

The end of the century
I said my goodbyes, for what it's worth
I always aimed to please
But I nearly died, for what it's worth
Come on lay with me
‘Cause I'm on fire, for what it's worth
I'd tear the sun in three
To Light up your eyes

For what it's worth
For what it's worth
For what it's worth
For what it's worth

Broke up the family
Everybody cried, for what it's worth
I had a slow disease
That sucked me dry, for what it's worth
Come on walk with me
Into the rising tide, for what it's worth
Fill the cavity
Your God shaped hole tonight

For what it's worth
For what it's worth
For what it's worth
For what it's worth

For what it's worth
For what it's worth
For what it's worth
For what it's worth

No one cares when you're out on the street
Picking up the pieces to make ends meet
And no one cares when you're down in the gutter
Got no friends, got no lover

No one cares when you're out on the street
Picking up the pieces to make ends meet
And no one cares when you're down in the gutter
Got no friends, got no lover

For what it's worth
(Got no lover)
For what it's worth
(Got no lover)

For what it's worth
(Got no lover)
For what it's worth
(Got no lover)

For what it's worth
(Got no lover)
For what it's worth
(Got no lover)

For what it's worth
(Got no lover)
For what it's worth
(Got no lover)

Devil In The Details

I've been wasting all my time
With the devil in the details
I've got no energy to fight
He's a fucking pal o'mine
That devil in the details
And he's fixing up to take a bite
I don't see the point in trying
I've got the devil in the details
He's gonna teach me wrong from right
That fucking pal o'mine
That devil in the details

I'm gonna dance with him tonight
All of my wrongs
And all my wicked ways
Will come back to haunt me come what may
For all of the songs
I hope to write some day
Looks like the devil's here to stay

Let me take you for a ride
With the devil in the details
We'll kiss and tremble with delight
Everything is fine
With the devil in the details

We're gonna dance with him tonight
All of my wrongs
And all my wicked ways
Will come back to haunt me come what may
For all of the songs
I hope to write some day

Looks like the devil's here to stay
Looks like the devil's here to stay
Looks like the devil's here to stay

All of my wrongs
And all my wicked ways
Will come back to haunt me come what may
For all of the songs
I hope to write some day

Looks like the devil's here to stay
Looks like the devil's here to stay
Looks like the devil's here to stay

I've been wasting all my time
With the devil in the details

Bright Lights

Cast your mind back to the days
When I'd pretend I was okay
I had so very much to say
About my crazy living

Now that I've stared into the void
So many people I've annoyed
I have to find a middle way
A better way of living

So I haven't given up
But all my choices, my good luck
Appeared to go and get me stuck
In an open prison

Now I am trying to break free
Be in a state of empathy
Find the true and inner me
Eradicate the schism

No-one can take it away from me
And no-one can tear it apart
Because a heart that hurts is a heart that works
A heart that hurts is a heart that works

A heart that hurts is a heart that works
No-one can take it away from me
And no-one can tear it apart
It may be elaborate fantasy
But it's the perfect place to start

Because a heart that hurts is a heart that works
A heart that hurts is a heart that works

Speak In Tongues

Kitty came back home from on the island
But Kitty came on home without a name
She and me's a history of violence
But I long and burn to touch her just the same

So we both can speak in tongues
So we both can speak in tongues

Every single sense in me is heightened
There's nothing left inside to rearrange
And like a slave to history and science
I long, I burn to touch you just the same

So we both can speak in tongues
So we both can speak in tongues

Until the universe is done
And the course of time is run
So we both can speak in tongues

Don't let them have their way
Don't let them have their way
You're beautiful and so blasé
So please don't let them have their way

Don't fall back into the decay
There is no law we must obey
Please don't let them have their way
Don't give in to yesterday

We can build a new tomorrow, today
We can build a new tomorrow, today
We can build a new tomorrow, today
We can build a new tomorrow, today

Today
Today
Today

The Never-Ending Why

The atom will implode
The fragile kingdom fold
The tremor becomes a quake
And there's a body in the lake

And as the two of us rebel
And damn you all to Hell
I wonder, is this all there is

Time will help you through
But it doesn't have the time
To give you all the answers
To the never-ending why

As the sound of silence grows
As the spiders kiss is laid
The tumour becomes malign
But the kids are doing fine

And as the two of us rebel
And damn you all to Hell
I wonder, is this all there is

Time will help you through
But it doesn't have the time
To give you all the answers
To the never-ending why

Time will help you through
But it doesn't have the time
To give you all the answers
To the never-ending why...

Julien

The payback is here
Take a look, it's all around you
You thought you'd never shed a tear
So this must astound
And must confound you

Buy a ticket for the train
Hide in a suitcase if you have to
This ain't no singing in the rain
This is a twister that would destroy you

You can run but you can't hide
Because no one here gets out alive
Find a friend in whom you can confide
Julien, you're a slow motion suicide

Fallen angels in the night
And everyone is barred from Heaven
Just one more hit to make it right
But everyone turns into seven

Now that it's snowing in your brain
Another ten will not placate you
This ain't no killer for the pain
This avalanche will suffocate you

You can run but you can't hide
Because no one here gets out alive
Find a friend on whom you can rely
Julien, you're being taken for a ride

You can run but you can't hide
Because no one here gets out alive
Find a friend in whom you can confide
Julien, you're a slow motion suicide

Slow-motion suicide, slow-motion suicide
Slow-motion suicide, slow-motion suicide

Slow-motion suicide, slow-motion suicide
Slow-motion suicide, slow-motion suicide
Slow-motion suicide

Happy You're Gone

Breathe me
Every time you close your eyes
Taste me
Every time you cry

This memory
Will fade away and die
Just for today
Breathe me and say goodbye

How many times
How many times
Now I can't look you in the eye
Now I can't look you in the eye

How many times
How many times
Now I can't look you in the eye

See me
In the eyes of another's child
Turn away
When you see me walking by, once in a while

This malady
Will fade away and die
Just for today
Breathe me and say goodbye

How many times
How many times
Now I can't look you in the eye
Now I can't look you in the eye

How many times
How many times
Now I can't look you in the eye
I don't even want to try

My my
My my
‘Cause every word from you is a lie
My my
My my my my my

How many times
How many times
Now I can't look you in the eye
Now I can't look you in the eye

How many times
How many times
Now I can't look you in the eye

Breathe Underwater

Here comes another fall from grace
I'm always falling on my face
This attitude that I embrace
For the love I'm trying to replace
I try to kill the song
‘Cause the melody's all wrong
And there's a fever coming on

It's hard to reconcile
What I've become
With the wounded child
Hiding deep inside

Breathe underwater
I'm coming up for air
I wanna see another dawn
Coming up for air
Sick of the slaughter
I'm coming up for air
‘Cause I've been floating here too long

Take my ego for a ride
‘Cause there's nobody by my side
It's getting hard to justify
And it won't be long ‘til I collide
My weakness is laid bare
As people stop and stare
But it's the last time I swear

It's hard to reconcile
What I've become
With the wounded child
Hiding deep inside

Breathe underwater
I'm coming up for air
I wanna see another dawn
Coming up for air
Sick of the slaughter
I'm coming up for air
‘Cause I've been floating here too long

Start breathing
Start breathing
Start breathing
Start breathing

Breathe underwater
I'm coming up for air
I wanna see another dawn
Coming up for air
Sick of the slaughter
I'm coming up for air
‘Cause I've been floating here too long

I'm coming
I'm coming
I'm coming, coming up for air
Coming up for air
Coming up for air

Come Undone

You don't know how you're coming across
You don't know what you're coming across
You don't know who you're coming across
You don't know how you're coming across
So you come undone

You don't know how you're coming across
Acting like you don't give a toss
Walking around like you're on some kind of cross
And it's a shame on you the irony's lost
When you come undone
You come undone
You know, you come undone
You know, you know, you know

You don't know how you're coming across
You don't know how you're coming across
And I don't think you're aware of the cost

So you come undone
You come
You come undone
You know, you know, you know

Kings Of Medicine

They're picking up pieces of me
While they're picking up pieces of you
In a bag you will be before the day is over

Were you looking for somewhere to be
Or looking for someone to do
Stupid me to believe that I could trust in stupid you

And on the back of my hand
Were directions I could understand
Now that old buzzard Johnny Walker
Has gone and ruined all our plans
Our best made plans

Don't leave me here to pass through time
Without a map or road sign
Don't leave me here, my guiding light, ‘cause I

I wouldn't know where to begin
I asked the kings of medicine

They're picking up pieces of me
While they're picking up pieces of you
Lying on ice you will be before the day is over

It's a case in point baby
That you never thought it through
Stupid me to believe I could depend on stupid you

And on the tip of my tongue
Were words that always came out wrong
‘Cause they were drowned in Southern Comfort
And left to dry out in the sun
The noonday sun

Don't leave me here to pass through time
Without a map or road sign
Don't leave me here, my guiding light, ‘cause I

I wouldn't know where to begin
I asked the kings of medicine

But it seems they've lost their powers
Now all I'm left with is the hours

Don't leave me here
Don't leave me here, oh no
I wouldn't know where to begin...

Loud Like Love

Loud Like Love

Love on an atom
Love on a cloud
To see the birth of all that isn't now
Can you imagine a love that is so proud
It never has to question why or how
Total abandon, the love in my dreams
When I wake up I'm soaking in my sheets

Breathe, breathe
Believe, believe, believe, believe

For all of our youth
We have craved them
Their beauty and their truth

Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe
Believe, believe, believe, believe
Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe
Believe, believe that we are loud like

Love on an atom
Love on a cloud
To see the birth of all that isn't now
Can you imagine a love that is so proud
It never has to question why or how

For all of our youth
We have craved them
Their beauty and their truth
So we name them
And somehow they pull us through
We have craved them
For all of our youth

Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe
Believe, believe, believe, believe

We are loud like love
We are loud like love
We are loud like love...

Scene Of The Crime

Send me a sign, let me know
Give me a time, a place I should go
Reach inside, watch me grow
See me rise

Scene of the crime, star of the show
If you were mine, then we would know
The peace of mind and seeds that we sew
Are intertwined

We almost made it
But making it is overrated

Scene of the crime, friend or foe
I've got a body to hide, you've got a body on show
And with our bodies entwined, we will know
Paradise

Scene of the crime, go with the flow
Take it fast, take it slow
Stay blind so I don't know
What's right

Our breath evaporates, before our eyes
The ground beneath that shakes
Under our weight

We almost made it
Making it is overrated (x5)

Scene of the crime
The scene of the crime (x4)

Too Many Friends

My computer thinks I'm gay
I threw that piece of junk away
On the Champs-Elysées
As I was walking home

This is my last communique
Down the superhighway
All that I have left to say
In a single tome

I got too many friends
Too many people that I'll never meet
And I'll never be there for
I'll never be there for
'Cause I'll never be there

If I could give it all away
Will it come back to me someday
Like a needle in the hay or an expensive stone

But I got a reason to declaim
The applications are to blame
For all my sorrow and my pain
Of feeling so alone

I got too many friends
Too many people that I'll never meet
And I'll never be there for
I'll never be there for
'Cause I'll never be there

Too many friends
Too many people that I'll never meet
And I'll never be there for
I'll never be there for
'Cause I'll never be there

My computer thinks I'm gay
What's the difference anyway
When all the people do all day
Is stare into a phone

I got too many friends
Too many people that I'll never meet

And I'll never be there for
I'll never be there for
'Cause I'll never be there

Too many friends
Too many people that I'll never meet
And I'll never be there for
I'll never be there for
'Cause I'll never be there

I'll never be there
I'll never be there
I'll never be there
I'll never be there

Hold On To Me

Who let the cat out of a bag
Who told the world I was older
Who laughed at all I had
Who said the race was over

I am a small and gentle man
Who carries the world upon his shoulders
Kindly lend a helping hand
Come over

And hold on to me
Hold on to me
And hold on to me
Hold on

And my behaviour is hard to understand
When I'm like a phone with no connection
But I'm still doing all I can
To try and get me some redemption

And I'm knee deep in sinking sand
Crying out for your attention
Kindly lend a helping hand
For once defy convention

And hold on to me
Hold on to me
Hold on to me
Hold on

And hold on to me
Hold on to me
Hold on to me
Hold on

Our task is to transform ourselves into awakened multidimensional beings
Thus fully merging the fourth and fifth dimensions into the third
It is the inner union between Earth ascending and Heaven descending
This sacred merger has already been achieved by many of us
And numerous others are awakening daily as the Call steadfastly intensifies
We are reclaiming our Divine Birthright and Heritage
Remembering that we are Angels incarnate, vast starry beings of Light
Who are no longer limited and bound by the illusions of time, space and matter
We are ready to join as emanations of the One
The new doorways cannot be opened or passed through by any of us
Still operating as individual beings of consciousness
They are brought into manifestation through our Unified Presence
Through our focused intent
Through our total commitment to serving our Higher Purpose
This is the bridge to an entirely different energy patterning
It is the step beyond the known dimensional universe
It is a journey into the unknown which shall lead us ever closer to home

A Million Little Pieces

There wasn't much I used to need
A smile would blow a summer breeze through
My heart

Now my mistakes are haunting me
Like winter came and put a freeze on
My heart

I've lost the power to understand
What it takes to be a man with
My heart

I saw you wanted this to end
You tried your best to be a friend to
My heart

But I'm leaving
This weary town
Please no grieving
My love, understand

Whenever I was feeling wrong
I used to go and write a song from
My heart

But now I fear I've lost my spark
No more glowing in the dark for
My heart

So I'm leaving
This weary town
Please no grieving
My love, understand

Understand
Understand
Understand
Understand
Understand

Can't you see I'm sick of fighting
Understand
Can't you tell I've lost my way
Understand
Look at me, there's no denying
Understand
I won't last another day

So I'm leaving
This weary town
Please no grieving
My love, understand

Then I'm leaving
This weary town
Please no grieving
My love, understand

All my dreaming
Torn in pieces
All my dreaming
Torn in pieces
All my dreaming
Torn in pieces
All my dreaming
Torn in pieces now

Exit Wounds

In the arms of another
Who doesn't mean anything to you
There's nothing much to discover

Does he shake, does he shiver
As he sidles up to you
Like I did in my time

As you wake, does he smother
You In kisses long and true
Does he even think to bother

And at night under covers
As he's sliding into you
Does it set your sweat on fire

Want you so bad I can taste it
But you're nowhere to be found
I'll take a drug to replace it
Or put me in the ground

In the arms of another
Who doesn't mean anything to you
Do you lose yourself in wonder

If I could, I would hover
While he's making love to you
Making rain as I cry

Want you so bad I can taste it
But you're nowhere to be found
And I'll take a drug to replace it
Or put me in the ground

Want you so bad I can taste it
But you're nowhere to be found
I'll take a drug to replace it
Or put me in the ground

Put me in the ground
And put me in the ground
Put me in the ground

Purify

Spatial awareness
So much confusion
And it's so difficult to harness
But then I look at you
Nimble and righteous
And then I look at the floor
We made a fine mess

My kiss
Can you feel it yet
In the back of the legs
And on the nape of your neck

Are you a temple
Are you a temptress
There's too much choice
The possibilities are endless

So wash away my sins
Give me catharsis
And re-magnetise
My moral compass

My kiss
Can you feel it yet
In the back of the legs
And on the nape of your neck

Your touch
Well I can not regret
I love the shape of your mouth
And the back of your head

You are so my kind
Erotic and divine
I gotta testify
To how you purify

To me you're more than a human
You are more complex
You're like a fallen angel
Who uses God as a hex

My kiss
Can you feel it yet
In the back of the legs
And on the nape of your neck

Your touch
Well I can not regret
I love the shape of your mouth
And the back of your head

You are so my kind
Erotic and divine
I gotta testify
To how you purify

Begin The End

Look me in the eye, say that again
Take me to your chest and let me in
Give me mouth to mouth and make amends
Knock me off my feet like heroin
No need to disguise or to pretend
Don't misconstrue and don't misapprehend
There's nothing left, no fortress to defend
Tonight's the night that we begin the end, oh

You and I kept looking to transcend
The fact that I was breaking to your bend
But this is now and sadly that was then
Tonight's the night that we begin the end, oh

I tried, God knows I try
But there's nothing you can do to change my mind
I tried, God knows I tried
But there's nothing you can do to change my mind
And I don't enjoy to watch you crumble
I don't enjoy to watch you cry
But make no mistake
Make no mistake

Look me in the eye, say that again
Blame me for the sorry state you're in
It's not my fault if you can't comprehend
That tonight's the night that we begin the end, oh

I tried, God knows I try
But there's nothing you can do to change my mind
I tried, God knows I tried
But there's nothing you can do to change my mind
And I don't enjoy to watch you crumble
I don't enjoy to watch you cry
I don't enjoy to watch you crumble
I don't enjoy to watch you cry

But make no mistake
Make no mistake

Look me in the eye, say that again

Bosco

I love you more than any man
But something's getting in the way
I do you harm because I can
For the second time today

Victims we are not of happenstance
But you're a victim all the same
Stuck inside a circumstance
With your confusion and your blame

And when I get drunk
You take me home
And keep me safe
From harm

When I get drunk
You take me home

I ask you for another second chance
But then I drink it all away
And I get bellicose when you react
Full of frustration and dismay

I was so delicate when we began
So tender when I spoke your name
But now I'm nothing but a partisan
To my compulsion and my shame

And when I get drunk
You take me home
And keep me safe
From harm

When I get drunk
You take me home

You know I'm grateful
I appreciate
But in fact it's baleful
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry
How I suck you
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry

I love you more than any man
But I seem to lay it all to waste
I do you harm because I can
With a joke in questionable taste

I've such duplicity at my command
So I keep on lying to your face
Then I run away to wonderland
And disappear without a trace

When I get drunk
You take me home
And keep me safe
From harm

When I get drunk
You take me home

You know I'm grateful
I appreciate
But in fact is baleful
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry
How I suck you
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry
How I suck you dry

Pity Party (Of One)

Here's to all the hearts we've broken
And the ones that we've made come alive
All the dreams and desires left unspoken
And the places we put them to hide

I'm glad I'm not invited
To your pity party
Yes, in fact, I'm delighted
'Cause it's a heavy scene

Here's to every lost soul who's anointed
In the name of a god who's not there
And every child who is left disappointed
By a parent who just couldn't care

I'm glad I'm not invited
To your pity party
Yes, in fact, I'm delighted
I don't want you to pity me

Can't you see there's a world out there
Don't be scared
Can't you see there's a world out there
Don't be scared, don't be scared
Can't you see there's a world out there
Don't be scared
Can't you see there's a world out there
Don't be scared, don't be scared

I'm glad I'm not invited
To your pity party
Yes, in fact, I'm delighted
'Cause I am pity-free

Running Up That Hill

( Kate Bush cover )

It doesn't hurt me.
You wanna feel how it feels?
You wanna know, know that it doesn't hurt me?
You wanna hear about the deal I'm making?
You *be running up that hill*
You and me *be running up that hill*

And if I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
Be running up that building.
If I only could, oh...

You don't want to hurt me,
But see how deep the bullet lies.
Unaware that I'm tearing you asunder.
There is thunder in our hearts, baby.
So much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don't we?

You, *be running up that hill*
You and me, *be running up that hill*
You and me won't be unhappy.

And if I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
Be running up that building,
If I only could, oh...

'C'mon, baby, c'mon, c'mon, darling,
Let me steal this moment from you now.
C'mon, angel, c'mon, c'mon, darling,
Let's exchange the experience, oh...'

And if I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
With no problems. x2

'If I only could, be running up that hill.' x7

Johnny & Mary

(Robert Palmer)

Johnny's always running around, trying to find certainty.
He needs all the world to confirm, that he aint lonely

Mary counts walls, knows he tires easily

Johnny thinks the world would be right, if it would buy, truth from him.
Mary says he changes his mind, more than a woman.

But she made her bed, even when the chance was slim.

Johnny says he's willing to learn, when he decides, he's a fool.
Johnny say's he'll live any where, when he earns time to.

Mary combs her hair, says she should be use to it.

Mary always hedges her bets, she never knows, what to think.
She says that he still acts, like he's being discovered.

Scared that he'll get caught, without a second thought

Johnny feels he's wasting his breath, trying to talk, sense to her
Mary says he's lacking a real, sense of proportion
So she combs her hair, knows he tires easily

Johnny's always running around, trying to find certainty.
He needs all the world to confirm, that he aint lonely

Mary counts walls, says she should be use to it

The Ballad of Melody Nelson

(Serge Gainsbourg)

Pour l'amitié,
L'amitié entre hommes et femmes
Impensable
Parce que, il y a toujours
Sous jacent
Le désir animal

This is the story of
Melody Nelson
Apart from me no one
Ever took her in his arms
Under her thumb
Eyes in the sun

Oh my Melody mine
Oh my Melody mine

She has nothing but love
Poor
Melody Nelson
Her life was more said than done
But her days were numbered
(?Nil?) Count fourteen falls
Fifteen on calls

A baby tiger was
Melody Nelson
Forever purring in the sun
Just as dangerous as a child
With a gun, shooting me down

Oh my Melody mine
Melody Nelson
Still playing hurting games for fun
As adorable as dumb
Deaf to the sound
To what's going down
Down
Down

*** Thanx a lot to Stephanie who corrected this one ***

Holocaust

( Cover from Big Star )

Your eyes are almost dead
Can't get out of bed
And you can't sleep

You're sitting down to dress
And you're a mess
You look in the mirror

You look in your eyes
Then you realize

Everybody goes
Leaving those
Who fall behind

Everybody goes
As far as they can
They don't just care

They stood on the stairs
Laughing at your errors
Your mother's dead
She said, "Don't be afraid."

Your mother's dead
You're on your own
She's in her bed

Everybody goes
Leaving those
Who fall behind

Everybody goes
As far as they can
They don't just care

You're a wasted face
You're a sad-eyed lie
You're a holocaust

I feel you

( Depeche mode cover )

I feel you
Your sun it shines
I feel you
Within my mind

You take me there
You take me where
The kingdom comes

You take me to
Leave me through
Babylon

This is the morning of our love
It's just the dawning of our love

I feel you
Your heart it sings
I feel you
The joy it brings

Where heaven waits
These golden gates
Back again
You take me to
Leave me through
Oblivion

This is the morning of our love
It's just the dawning of our love

I feel you
Your precious soul
I'm a whole

I feel you
Your rising sun
My kingdom comes

I feel you
Each move you make
I feel you
Each breath you take

Where angels sing
And spread their wings
My love's on high

You take me home
To glory's throne
By and by

This is the morning of our love
It's just the dawning of our love
This is the morning of our love
It's just the dawning of our love

I feel you
Your precious soul
I'm a whole

I feel you
Your rising sun
My kingdom comes

Jackie

(Sinead O'connor cover )

Jackie left on a cold, dark night
Telling me he'd be home
Sailed the seas for a hundred years
And left me all alone

Now I've been dead for twenty years
I've been washing the sand with my ghostly tears
Searching the shores for my Jackie-oh

And I remember the day that the young man came
Said, your Jackie's gone, he is lost in the rain
And I ran to the beach
And laid me down

You're all wrong, I said
And they stared to the sand
That man knows the sea like the back of his hand
He'll be back some time
Laughing at you

And I've been waiting all this time
For my man to come, take his hand in mine
And lead me away
To unseen shores

I've been washing the sand with my salty tears
Searching the shore these long years
And I'll walk the sea forever more
'til I find my Jackie-oh
Jackie-oh
Jackie-oh
Jackie-oh

*** Thanx a lot to Chumulu & Alex for this one ***

Let me tell you this story about this ambidextrous talk show host
That I used to live with who once told me that the sky was green.
I didn't believe him so I hit back with a short sharp shot, disco me to oblivion baby.
He uh, couldn't appreciate my sense of humour and that's when we started to grow apart.

Ohhh

No pain
No gain

Well things didn't improve for our relationship when I was seduced by his wife
And then I fell in love with his daughter.
And I can't help who I fall in love with, ok?
Then one day I accidently castrated his prized poodle with an electronic can opener. Yaaoucha!
He kicked me out of the house and he burnt all my pictures of his sweet Jimmy Dean.

Kangaroo Died

Well the doctor keeps me waiting
The blood in my brain
The pain in my chest
Oh Oh Oh
Only happens when it's rainin
The smoke in my lung
The beer in my gut
Oh Oh Oh

Feelin like a motherfuck
The only way is down from here
Oh Oh Oh
Feelin like a motherfuck
The only way is down from here
Oh Oh Oh

It's a nightmare in the alley
The undertaker's there
With his bowler hat
Oh Oh Oh
And his coffin eyes are empty
The ex-wife she's there too
Grinnin like a Cheshire cat
Oh Oh Oh

And I'm feelin like a motherfuck
The only way is down from here
Oh Oh Oh
Feelin like a motherfuck
The only way is down from here
Oh Oh Oh

I'm tryin to buy a drink
But the barmaid's cross-eyed
Why'd they let her work here
Hell I just don't know
I find it hard to think
Since my kangaroo died
Why'd she have to leave me
Hell I just don't know
I don't know

Well the priest is at the pulpit
Tellin me I'm wrong
Tellin me I'm sickening
Oh Oh Oh
To believe him is to forfeit
Everything I am
And everything I'll never be
Oh Oh

So I'm feelin like a motherfuck
The only way is down from here
Oh Oh Oh
Feelin like a motherfuck
The only way is down from here
Oh Oh Oh

I'm tryin to buy a drink
But the barmaid's cross-eyed
Why'd they let her work here
Hell I just don't know
I find it hard to think
Since my kangaroo died
Why'd she have to leave me
Hell I just don't know
I don't know

Always were the waters
Deep inside your heart
Always wanted to return
To your body
But I'm not sure I can

Hang on to you IQ

(Early version, 1994)

Tonight
Touch me when our passion's through
That's right
They're all dead I'd hate to miss you
Feeling so much older
Now my body's colder
Tonight
You crush me like I was a boulder

It takes two to piss in faces
Keeps alive but leaves no traces
Trigger shoots like violent chases
In this depth is my oasis

Hang on to your IQ
Hang on to your ID
Hang on to your IQ
And please hang on to me

Tonight
Don't speak my name
Tonight
Let's break the rules of this boring game
Some key morning
And I'll get used to slashing back and choking
Tonight
When you said you loved me you were joking

It takes two to piss in faces
Keeps alive but leaves no traces
Trigger shoots like violent chases
In this depth is my oasis

Hang on to your IQ
Hang on to your ID
Hang on to your IQ
And please hang on to me

Careful not to give your favors
To the lonely housewife neighbors
I had one who one sent me her heart
In a tupperware container
Don't you dare touch my stash
And give me cigarette ash
Nothing tastes as sweet as incest
In this empire of the senses
Singing songs not meant to be sung
Beating like my bleeding heart
Careless slipping of the tongue on
Just another private part
Rabid search for stoned affection
Fights the lust that breeds infection
Meet me at the intersection
Don't forget your fuel injection

*** Thanx a lot to Dorian for this one ***

Teenage Angst

(Demo)

Shine the headlight
Straight into my eye
Like the roadkill
I'm paralysed
You see through my disguise

At the drive-in
Double feature
Pull the lever
Break the fever
And say your last goodbye

Since I was born I started to decay
Now nothing ever ever goes my way

One fluid gesture
Like stepping back in time
Trapped in amber
I'm petrefied
I'm still not satisfied

Well I was suicidal once
But now honestly I'm fine
I'll stick to my needle
And my favorite waste of time
Both spineless and sublime

Since I was born I started to decay
Now nothing ever ever goes my way

*** Thanx a lot to Dorian for this one ***

36 Degrees

(Demo version)

I see light
And it hurts
As silver turns to blue
Waxing with the candlelight
And burning just for you
Allocate your sentiment
Stick it in a box
I've always been this paranoid
But i'm still breathing

Someone tried to do me ache
Someone tried to do me ache
Someone tried to do me ache (it's what I'm afraid of)
Someone tried to do me ache (it's what I'm afraid of)

And these eyes
Are born blind
Lost without a clue
Thought I was getting carat gold
And all I got was you
Stuck inside the circumstance
A healthy dose of luck
I've always been an introvert
As a kid I was beaten

Someone tried to do me ache
Someone tried to do me ache
Someone tried to do me ache (it's what I'm afraid of)
Someone tried to do me ache (it's what I'm afraid of)

4 7 2 3 9 8 5
I've gotta breathe to stay alive
And 1 4 2 9 7 8
Feels like I'm gonna suffocate
14 16 22
The skin that turns to blister blue

Shoulders toes and knees
I'm 36 degrees
Shoulders toes and knees
I'm 36 degrees
Shoulders toes and knees
I'm 36 degrees
Shoulders toes and knees
I'm 36 degrees

*** Thanx a lot to Dorian for this one ***

Paycheck

Consumed by the one's who made her
She's a faker, always let's me down
Dressed up like a capital shaker
Full of ganja drugs are not put down
I'll have you're guts for garters
Just for starters
Don't you make me frown
She could've been a nutter
So I had to cut the mother down

Slacker, wasting half is life on sniffing glue
Now he's reformed, working for the red the
White and blue
Plain sailing, safe surfing
Pocket full of back stab

Confused by the one's who break her
She's a faker, never makes a sound
Undressed like a soul prayer
Buying shares, pay her by the pound
I'll have your face for breakfast
I'm in excess, neither lost nor found
She could've been a nutter
So I had to cut the mother down

Slacker, wasted half is life on speed
Now he's reformed and working for the red
The white and blue
Plain sailing, shoulder pad
Dental flossing, back stab

Pay - check, Pay - check

Save the best for later
Be careful not to stain the sheets now
You god damn liar
Take me higher

I never wanted the real thing, I never
Wanted the real thing
I never wanted the real thing, I never
Wanted the real thing
I never wanted the real thing, I never
Wanted the real thing
I never wanted the real thing

Slacker, wasted half is life on sniffing glue
Now he's reformed, working for the red the
White and blue
Plain sailing, wife swapping
Stool pigeon, back stab.

Pay - check, Pay - check

Save the best for later
Be careful not to stain the sheets now
You god damn liar
Pants on fire

Cold lining to pour on me
But this one really takes the piss
It's likely to proquandry
I deserve so much more than this.

*** Thanx a lot to Fiona & Wordy who corrected this one ***

Eyesight to the blind

You don't know me
And you never hold me
Like your little piece on the side
My mother told me
That you're never lonely
When you're laughing, all the time

Inside-out and outside-in
You bring eyesight to the blind
Crying, is a crime.

Slowing down the metronome
Slowing down
Slowing down the metronome
Slowing down.

You don't know me
And you never hold me
Like your little boy in blue
My father told me
That you're always lonely
When they're all laughing at you

Inside-out and outside-in
You bring Jesus to the jew.

Slowing down the metronome
Slowing down
Slowing down the metronome
Slowing down.

You don't know me
And you never hold me
Like your little piece on the side

Inside-out and outside-in
You bring eyesight to the blind

Nancy Boy

( Demo Version )

Alcoholic kind of mood,
I've lost my head,
I've my lube,
Cruising for a piece of fun,
Looking out for number one,
Different partner every night,
So narcotic outta sight,
What a gas,
What a beautiful ass

And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me,
And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me.

Kind of buzz that lasts for days,
Had some help from insect ways,
Comes across all shy and coy,
Just another nancy boy,
Woman man or modern monkey,
Half a genius half a junkie,
Fifty pounds,
Press my button,
Going down.

And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me,
And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me.

Does his makeup in his room,
Douse himself with cheap perfume,
Eyeholes in a paper bag,
Greatest lay i ever had,
Kind of guy who mates for life,
Gotta help him find a wife,
We're a couple,
When our bodies double.

And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me,
And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me.

And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me,
And it all breaks down at the first rehearsal,
Got the muse in my head she's universal,
Spinnin' me round she's coming over me.

Bruise Pristine

( Demo version )

The means are right for taking, fade to grey
Trying to be ruthless, in the face of beauty
In this matrix, it's plain to see
It's either you or me

Bruise
Pristine
Serene
We were born to lose

Cast a line with a velvet glove
Reading like an open book, in the hands of love
In this matrix, it's plain to see
It's either you or me

Bruise
Pristine
Serene
We were born to lose

Encore, encore, encore, encore, encore
Plus bas, encore, plus fort, encore (x2)

Means are right for taking, fade to grey
Trying to be ruthless, in the face of beauty
In this matrix, it's plain to see
It's either you or me.

Bruise
Pristine
Serene
We were born to lose

In the cold light of morning

( Demo Version / Meds Dvd )

In the cold light of morning while everyone's yawning you're high
As your skin starts a scratchin'
Wave yesterday's action goodbye
Forget past indiscretions and stolen possessions
You're high

In the cold light of day

In the cold light of morning while everyone's yawning you're high (x3)
As your skin starts a scratching wave yesterday's action goodbye
Forget past indiscretions and stolen possessions
You're high
In the cold light of day

Tomorrow's only a kettle whistle away

In the cold light of morning while everyone's yawning you're high
As your skin starts a scratchin'
Wave yesterday's action goodbye
Forget past indiscretions and stolen possessions
You're high
In the cold light of day

Tomorrow's only a kettle whistle away

Tomorrow (x4)

As your skin starts a scratchin'
Wave yesterday's action goodbye
Forget past indiscretions and stolen possessions you're high (x3)
In the cold light of day

Tomorrow's only a kettle whistle away
Tomorrow's only a kettle whistle away
Tomorrow's only a kettle whistle (x9)away
In the cold (x2) light of day

I Do

( Demo Version / Meds Dvd )

I wanna be much more like you
Your effortlessly graceful scene
That drips from every pore of you
A human form of dopamine

I wanna take a bath with you
And wash the chaos from my skin
I wanna fall in love with you
So how do we begin

I wanna be much more like you
The way your smile lights up the room
I'll relax since men flirt with you
To jealously I'll stay immune
This confidence in me and you
This hope that you and I will bloom
I wanna fall in love with you

I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do

I wanna be a girl like you
The way you swing your hips in jeans
I wanna wear my face like you
Shiseido MAC and Maybelline
I wanna paint the town with you
And tickle you until you scream
I wanna fall in love with you

I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do

The question is do you
The question is do you

Pierrot the clown

( Demo Version / Meds Dvd )

Leave me dreaming on the bed
See you right back here tomorrow
For the next round
Keep this scene inside your head
As the bruises turn to yellow
The swelling goes down

And if you're ever around
In the city or the suburbs
Of this town
Be sure to come around
I'll be wallowing in sorrow
Wearin' a frown
Like Pierrot the clown

Saw you crashin' round the bay
Never seen you act so shallow
Or look so brown
Remember all the things you'd say
How your promises rang hollow
As you threw me to the ground

And if you're ever around
In the backstreets or the alleys
Of this town
Be sure to come around
I'll be wallowing in pity
Wearing a frown
Like Pierrot the clown

When I dream- I dream of your lips
When I dream - I dream of your fists
When I dream -I dream of your kiss
When I dream - I dream of your fists
Your fists

Leave dreaming on the bed
See you right back here tomorrow
For the next round
Keep this scene inside your head
watch the bruises turn to yellow
The swelling going down

And if you're ever around
In the city or the suburbs
Of this town,
Be sure to come around,
I'll be wallowing in sorrow
Wearing a frown
Like Pierrot the clown

When I dream - I dream of your lips
When I dream - I dream of your fists
When I dream -I dream of your kiss
When I dream - I dream of your fists
Your fists, your fists,your fists

"This song is called, "Allergic to thoughts of Mom".

Any means in your horizon
Impotent and far away
The eyes are tired of every making
You take today
With expert levitation forward
Polished to the Nth Degree
It takes it's smile from every children
You take the beating

Any means in your horizon
Every mink walks two by two
The eyes are tired of heavy breaking
You wanted to
With expert levitation forward
Polished to the Nth Degree
It takes it's smile from every children
You take the beating

B3

( B3 EP )

I refuse to remain in regret
To pander like a slave to your wants
No contrition from me will you get
No submission to dilettantes

I've existed too long in secret
I have lived like a man confined
Epicene and elaborate
Fatalistic and resigned
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Passion flower
Catherine wheel
Higher power
Help me start to heal

Now I bathe in the sea at sunset
And the rain washes clean my mind
Every one of my needs will be met
Every planet will be aligned

Passion flower
Catherine wheel
Higher power
Help me start to heal

Overpower
All my fear
From mouth to hour
Guide me through the real

I refuse to remain in regret
I refuse to be left behind

Passion flower
Catherine wheel
Higher power
Help me start to heal

Been Smoking Too Long

( Nick Drake )

Yeah, I really, um, I really, I really wanted to kind of like,
To capture some kind of like moment, but maybe it's better if I'm sober...'

Wake up in the morning, I look at my clock
It's way past noontime, i'm late for work
Tell me what have i done wrong?
Nothing can go right with me it must be that i've been smoking too long

Go to fix me some breakfast, i ain't got no food
Take me a shower, the water don't feel no good
Tell me what have i done wrong?
And nothing can go right with me must be that i've been smoking too long

I got opium in my chimney, no other life to choose
Nightmares made of hash dreams, the devil in my shoes
What have I done wrong?
Yeah nothing can go right with me it must be that i've been smoking too long

When I'm smoking, smoking, put my worries on a shelf
Try not to think about nothing, don't wanna see myself
What have I done wrong?
And nothing can go right with me it must be that I've been smoking too long

In this blues i'm singing, there's a lesson to be learned
You go round smoking, you're gonna get burned
Fuck me what have I done wrong?
Nothing can go right with me must be that i've been smoking
Too long, too long

Besame mucho

Popping out of her head

Boys don't cry

( Live Wembley 05-11-2004 with Robert Smith )

I would say I'm sorry
If I thought that it would change your mind
But I know that this time
I've said too much
Been too unkind
So I try to laugh about it
Cover it all up with lies
I try to laugh about it
Hiding the tears in my eyes
'Cause boys don't cry
Boys don't cry

I would break down at your knees
And beg forgiveness
Plead with you
But I know that
It's too late
And now there's nothing I can do

So I try to laugh about it
Cover it all up with lies
I try to
Laugh about it
Hiding the tears in my eyes
'Cause boys don't cry

I would tell you
That I loved you
If I thought that you would stay
But I know that it's too late
And you've already
Gone away

Misjudged your limits
Pushed you too far
Took you for granted
I thought that you needed me more

Now I would do most anything
To get you back by my side
But I just
Keep on laughing
Hiding the tears in my eyes
'Cause boys don't cry
Boys don't cry
Boys don't cry

Bulletproof Cupid

( Before Bulletproof Cupid became an instrumental, Brian spent quite a while trying to conjure some lyrics to complement the song.
The idea was finally abandoned, but the attempt remains )

Everything's forgotten
Everything's so rotten
Why don't you release me?
Why don't you just tease me?

I don't think I need you anymore
I don't think I need another whore
I just feel like you should wait
Time will tell before it's too late
When all is said and done you
Just ain't no fun to be with

You're my bulletproof cupid
You're my little stupid
You're my fluctuated
You're my inspector gadget
You're my new toy to play with
You're my toy boy to be with
You're my bulletproof cupid
Just a little too stupid

Everything is taken
Everything's awakened
Why don't you reject me?
Why don't you just infect me?

I don't think I want this anymore
I don't think I want another whore
I just feel like we should wait
Time unfolds then it's too late
When all is said and done you
Can't be the one to run with

You're my bulletproof cupid
You're my little stupid
You're my incarcerated
You're my fortune faded
You're my new tool to play with
You're my new fool to be with
You're my bulletproof cupid
Still that little bit stupid

*** Thanx a lot to David for this one ***

Crush

I'll wait for him, because i know him.
Go there for him, go there first.
I'll wait for him, because i owe him.
Go there for him, because i must.
I'll wait for him, go there for him
I'll wait for him, go there first.
My place is nowhere, my name is cursed.
Before you come here, call friends and family first
There's a reason for this
I am i am i am
I'm crushed you saw this
I am i am i am
There's a reason for this
I am i am i am
Now no one lives here not even dust
The ones swept through here, more crushed than us.
There's something in here, it's not just lust
If someone lives here, it's given liken first.
There's a reason for this
There's a reason for this
I am i am i am
I'm crushed you saw this
I am i am i am
There's a reason for this
I am i am i am
Seen all kinds of things here, i've heard things said
We wear our shoes here, we share no rent
I left my friends here, some things are still dead.
Before you come here call home instead
There's a reason for this
I am i am i am
I'm crushed you saw this
I am i am i am
There's a reason for this
I am i am i am

Dark globe

( Syd Barrett )

Oh where are you now
Pussy willow that smiled on this leaf
When I was alone
You promised the stone from your heart

My head kissed the ground
I was half the way down, treading the sand
Please

Please, lift a hand
I'm only a person
Whose armbands beat
On his hands, hang tall
Won't you miss me
Wouldn't you miss me at all
Oh oh oh

The poppy bird's way
Swing twigs coffee brands around
Brandish her wand with a feathery tongue
My head kissed the ground
I was half the way down, treading the sand
Please

Please, please lift the hand
I'm only a person with Eskimo chain
I tattooed my brain all the way
Won't you miss me
Wouldn't you miss me at all

*** Thanx a lot to Katros & Wordy & Betty & Luisa who corrected this one ***

Drink you pretty

Sick of drugs and dancing feet
Sick of bars where people meet
Smell of crotch and sheets not clean
Hairy men in magazines
Every city looks the same
Running from the threat of rain
Pillow talk that's just for one
Saturday get nothing done

Lie to me
It takes less time
To drink you pretty

Lie to me
It takes less time
To drink you pretty

Human seas of apathy
Nuclear catastrophe
Jumbos crash into the ground
Governments sleep safe and sound
Mornings glisten cold and bright
Organs stolen every night
Can of beans and fast boquet
Double jackpot give away

Lie to me
It takes less time
To drink you pretty

Lie to me
It takes less time
To drink you pretty

Hello pretty
Hello
Hello pretty
Hello
Hello pretty
Hello
Hello pretty

Lie to me
It takes less time
To drink you pretty

Lie to me
It takes less time
To drink you pretty

Drowning by numbers

Open up your heart, let me slip inside
Such determination, always tries to turn the tide
Open up your arms, let me dive into
The big, big blue

Try losing
This chromosome
It's my choosing
Down to the bone

Open up your heart, let me slip inside
Such imagination always helps the feeling slide
Open up your soul, falling back into
The big, big blue

Try losing
This chromosome
It's my choosing
Down to the bone

Blood, Dive in, Blood
Drowning, Blood, Dive in
[Repeat]

Open up your heart, let me slip inside
Auto-flagellation always helps the ghost to hide
Open up your arms, let me dive into
The big, big blue

Try losing
This chromosome
It's my choosing
Down to the bone

Blood, Dive in, Blood
Drowning, Blood, Dive in

Five Years

( David Bowie Cover / Live @ Traffic Music 27.02.2004 )

Pushing thru the market square
So many mothers sighing
News had just come over
We had five years left to cry in

News guy wept and told us
He said 'earth was really dying'
Cried so much his face was wet
Then I knew he was not lying

I heard telephones, opera house, favourite melodies
There were boys, toys electric irons and T.V.'s
My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there

And all the fat-skinny people
And all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people
And all the somebody people
Never thought I'd need so many people

A girl my age went off her head
Hit some tiny children
If the black hadn't a-pulled her off
And I think she would have killed them

A soldier with a broken armfixed
His stare to the wheels of a Cadillac
A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest
And a queer threw up at the sight of that

Well, I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour
Drinking milk shakes cold and long
Smiling and waving and looking so fine
Don't think you knew you were in this song

And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor
And I thought of Ma and I wanted to get back there
Your face, your race, the way that you talk
I miss you, you're beautiful

We've got five years, stuck on my eyes
Five years, what a surprise
We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, that's all we've got
We've got
Five years.

First day

( Timo Maas Feat. Brian Molko )

I see you've found my underground
Help yourself to guns and ammo
Nothing here has ever seen the light of day
I leave it in my head

It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life

You'll remember me, for the rest of your life
You'll remember me, for the rest of your life

It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life

It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life

Don't fuck it up
Don't fuck it up

You'll remember me, for the rest of your life
You'll remember me, for the rest of your life

It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life

It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life
It's the first day of the rest of your life

Flesh Mechanic

He tries to embrace her
She wants him to race her
He needs a laser
To get it through her skull
(Means and lies and hatreds)?
Tears that fall in sequence
Cold caress
Imprints
Conversation growing dull

Says he's a poet
Loudly protoazoan
And he kisses ass for free
I took a vow of silence
When he tries to talk to me
I just turn on the tv

He tries to impress her
Mentally undress her
It takes more to possess her
But in his pocket lies a hole
He's got a thousand talents
Charisma by the bagful
Aristocratic parents
A rebel with a heart of gold

Says he's a poet
This time he's gonna blow it
'Cause he's dancing with his ego
I took a vow of silence
When he reads his words to me
I swallow words like a placebo

He's strutting with your flesh mechanic
Gets him in a panic
He's wasting time
'Cause everybody is a star
In his eyes

Careful not to give your favours
To your lonesome fucked-up neighbours
I had one who sent me her heart
In a tupperware container
All the movies in my head
They flicker with my bleeding heart
A careless slipping of the tongue
On just another private part

Blatant search for
Stoned affection
Fights the lust that
Breeds infection
Meet me at the
Intersection
Don't forget your
Fuel injection

He's strutting with your flesh mechanic
Gets him in a panic
He's wasting time
'Cause everybody is a star
In his eyes

You think this love is bona fide
You're being taken for a ride
Wrap your lip around your head
And slowly blow yourself away

Fuck U

(Ashtray Heart single B-Side, Archive cover)

Theres a look on your face I would like to knock out
See the sin in your grin and the shape of your mouth
All I want is to see you in terrible pain
Though we wont ever meet I remember your name
Cant believe you were once just like anyone else
Then you grew and became like the devil himself
Pray to god I can think of a kind thing to say
But I dont think I can so fuck you anyway
You are scum, you are scum and I hope that you know
That the cracks in your smile are beginning to show
Now the world needs to see that its time you should go
Theres no light in your eyes and your brain is too slow
Cant believe you were once just like anyone else
Then you grew and became like the devil himself
Pray to god I can think of a kind thing to say
But I dont think I can, so fuck you anyway

So fuck you anyway!
So fuck you anyway!
So fuck you anyway!
So fuck you anyway!
So fuck you anyway!

Bet you sleep like a child with your thumb in your mouth
I could creep up beside put a gun in your mouth
Makes me sick when I hear all the shit that you say
So much crap coming out it must take you all day
Theres a space kept in hell with your name on the seat
With a spike in the chair just to make it complete
When you look at yourself do you see what I see
If you do why the fuck are you looking at me
Why the fuck are you looking at me
Why the fuck why the fuck are you looking at me
Why the fuck why the fuck are you looking at me
Why the fuck why the fuck are you looking at me
Why the fuck why the fuck are you looking at me

Theres a time for us all and I think yours has been
Can you please hurry up cos I find you obscene
I cant wait for the day that youre never around
When that face isnt here and you rot underground
Cant believe you were once just like anyone else
Then you grew and became like the devil himself
Pray to God I can think of a kind thing to say
But I dont think I can so fuck you anyway

So fuck you anyway!
So fuck you anyway!
So fuck you anyway!
So fuck you anyway!

Hardly wait

( PJ Harvey Cover / Ashtray Heart EP )

I can hardly wait
I can hardly wait
I can hardly wait
I can hardly wait
It's been so long
I've lost my taste
Say angel come
Say lick my face
Let fall your dress
I'll play the part
I'll open this mouth wide
Eat your heart

I can hardly wait
I can hardly wait
I can hardly wait
I can hardly wait

Lips cracked dry
Tongue blue burst
Say angel come
Say lick my thirst
It's been so long
I've lost my taste
Here Romeo
Make my water's break

In my glass coffin
I am waiting
In my glass coffin
I am waiting...

I do

(Once More With Feelings LP)

I wanna be much more like you
Your effortlessly graceful scene
That drips from every pore of you
Where logic cannot intervene
I wanna take a bath with you
And wash the chaos from my skin
I wanna fall in love with you
So how do we begin ?

I wanna be a girl like you
The way you swing your hips in jeans
I wanna wear my face like you
Shiseido MAC and Maybelline
I wanna paint the town with you
And tickle you until you scream
I wanna fall in love with you

I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do

I wanna be much more like you
The way your smile lights up the room
I'll kick back as men flirt with you
To jealously I'll stay immune
This confidence in me and you
This hope that you and I will bloom
I wanna fall in love with you

I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do

The question is do you ?

I.K.W.Y.L.

( B3 EP )

Hey you in your ivory tower
I know where you live
Hey you with so much power
I know where you live
Been in bed with the government
With you it's take, take, and no give
The CEO of the decadent
I know where you live
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
(I know where you live)
Deep of the heart of man
With the devil's common friend

Hey you with your dynamite
I know where you live
You with your righteous and holy fight
I know where you live
With all the orphans you create
I don't think your maker will forgive
What do you ask for when you pray
How do you sleep when you're so vindictive

(I know where you live)
Deep in the heart of man
(I know where you live)
With the devil's common friend
(I know where you live)
Deep in the heart of man
(I know where you live)
With the devil's common friend

If Only Tonight We Could Sleep

( Placebo & The Cure - Live 20 years of Canal + - Zenith France 04-11-04 )

If only tonight we could sleep
In a bed made of flowers
If only tonight we could fall
In a deathless spell

If only tonight we could slide
Into deep black water
And breathe
And breathe...

Then an angel would come
With burning eyes like stars
And bury us deep
In his velvet arms

And the rain would cry
As our faces slipped away
And the rain would cry

Don't let it end...

I Know You Want To Stop

( Minxus Cover / B3 EP )

I know you want to stop
There is no return from this point on
Be glad for what you got
Maybe you won't take too long to burn
I recognise the smile
There is some things I cannot forget
And maybe for a while
I'll pretend that we have never met

We have never met
We have never met

Maybe we will part
Will your paranoia keep you warm
I'll eat it from your heart
And I will still enjoy to watch you fall
The credits start to roll
We take off our clothes and roll around
Boredom takes its toll
It shall be your eyes that let you down
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Eyes will let you down
Eyes will let you down

And you're still
You're still
You're still
Still around home

I know you want to stop
I know you want to stop
Stop

And you're still
You're still
You're still
Still around home

You're still
You're still
You're still
Still around home

I know you want to stop
Stop

In A Funk

(Japanese & iTunes bonus track from the album Battle for the Sun)

Call me anticipation
Call me out of line
But I got a hotel reservation
In the name of Valentine
In the place where we'd vacation
And we walked across the beach
I felt your breath against my neck
As the waves caressed our feet

Haven knows
If you promise not to go
I will pay you back in kind
I don't want to be alone
I'm alive, so alive

Call me animation
Call me asinine
But I'm in desperate situation
With a mask to hide behind
The effect on our relations
And all that we believe
Feels like a slap across the face
Now
There's a handprint on your cheek

Haven knows
If you promise not to go
I will pay you back in kind
I don't want to be alone
I'm alive, so alive
If you promise not to go
I will pay you back in kind
I don't want to be alone
I'm alive, so alive

Let me pay you back in kind
Let me pay you back in kind
Let me pay you back in kind
Let me pay you back

Is it
My imagination?
Is this the end of the line?
Is it a reconciliation?
Or just a way of killing time?

God
Only knows
If you promise not to go
I will pay you back in kind
I don't want to be alone
I'm alive, so alive
If you promise not to go
I will pay you back in kind
I don't want to be alone
I'm alive, so alive

Let me pay you back in kind
Let me pay you back in kind
Let me pay you back in kind
Let me pay you back in kind

Just like every lichen
How you stick to me
If your luck is dying
Go and plant a tree
With artistic licence
Always comes for free
Just like every lichen
How you stick to me

Slipped her way backstage
Paris sets the rage?
Close in on your prey
How I slipped away

Just like every lichen
How you stick to me
If your luck is dying
Go and plant a tree
With artistic licence
Always comes for free
Just like every lichen
How you stick to me

Weightless
Bare
Faithless
Scared

Know that creatures face
Both seen better days
Too quick to blow a fuse
That's the likely juice

Just like every lichen
How you stick to me
If your luck is dying
Go and plant a tree
With artistic licence
Always comes for free
Just like every lichen
How you stick to me

Said: weightless
Bare
Faithless
Scared

Slipped her way backstage
Paris sets the rage?
Close in on your prey
How I slipped away

Just like every lichen
How you stick to me
If your luck is dying
Go and plant a tree
With poetic licence
Always comes for free
Just like every lichen
How you stick to me

Lazarus

It's horrid to see you again
Now that you're back from the dead
It's horrid to see you again
So bored of being you

It's horrid to see you again
Now that you're back from the dead
It's horrid to see you again
So bored of being...

Alive, alive, alive

It's horrid to see you again
Acting like you're on some kind of cross
It's horrid to see you again
An emotional retard
It's horrid to see you again
Unaware that all may not be lost
It's horrid to see you again
So bored of being...

Alive, alive, alive, alive
Alive, alive, alive

It's horrid to see you again
Walking around with that egg on your face
It's horrid to see you again
So full of apathy
It's horrid to see you again
Caught in a trap that you cannot escape
It's horrid to see you again
So bored of being...

Alive, alive, alive, alive
Alive, alive, alive

Leni

( Studio Version )

I kneel before her
Beneath this frozen sky
Beneath her shoulder
Beneath her evil eye
She towers over this male who is a fly
My sci-fi lullaby

I kneel before her
Beneath this frozen sky
I beg below her
My limbs are paralyzed
She beats me harder than any kind of guy
My sci-fi lullaby

*** Thanx a lot to Bastian for this one ***

 

( Live Man Ray 29-3-2003 )

I kneel before her
Beneath this frozen sky
Beneath her shoulder
Beneath her evil eye
She towers over
This male who is a fly
My sci-fi lullaby

I kneel before her
Beneath this frozen sky
I beg below her
My legs are paralysed
She feels much softer
Than any kind of guy
My sci-fi lullaby

Beside her
Astride her
I die inside her
Forever
And ever
She's born to mesmor
Sacred
Dont break it
Dont ever
Go let me down

Cross my heart and hope to die
Cross my heart and hope to die
Cross my heart and hope to die


Beside her
Astride her
I die inside her
Forever
And ever
She's born to mesmor
Sacred
Dont break it
Dont ever
Go let me down

Beside her
Astride her
I die inside her

Forever
And ever
She's born to mesmor
Sacred
Dont break it
Dont ever
Go let me down

Cross my heart and hope to die
Cross my heart and hope to die

Hang breathless on me
The war will soon be over
So hang breathless on me

We'll walk slow through the empty
And we'll do as we please
We'll crawl body to body
Just like siamese
Like siamese

It's cold down by the water
And there's blood on the trees
We'll flow shoulder to shoulder
Just like siamese
Like siamese

Hang breathless on me
Hang breathless on me

The war will soon be over
So hang breathless on me

Like siamese
Like siamese
Like siamese

( Special K EP )

In our pain and sinning fall 
Accept peace and whine 
Going bad and taking all this 
It's of each and tide 
Calling bean and sinning call 
Now I'm neat and tight 
Gonna crap with naked Elvis 
Sits there cheating high 

Tonight, Jesus loves you 
Tonight, Jesus loves you 
Tonight, Jesus loves you 
Tonight, Jesus loves you 

We are dead and cynical 
Gun of peace in my eye 
See the back with naked Elvis 
It's a cheating high 

But she will back on mainframe 
She got crack on cocain 
She got crack on seeing 
Cheater, cheater... 

Tonight, Jesus loves you X7

Till our death and sinning call 
Except she can hide 
All those fat and sacred elders 
Sister off and bad-eyed 

She got back on mainframe 
She got crack on cocain
She got crack on seeing 
Cheater, cheater... 

Tonight, Jesus loves you X7

We rise tonight

Penance for his sin, he locked it in for just a little while
Lubricating creams, sanitaries would only cramp his style
It's a dirty job but shooting guns just makes you horny
Wants to spill his seed on guaranteed, service with a smile.

Oh
Miss Moneypenny

Oh

Pitter patter of the eyelid on the first roll of the dice
Feel the atmosphere, it's gently laced with nicotine and spice
It's a long walk home, the entrance of the night is scary
Only trouble is, he never learned to shoot the same gun twice

Miss Moneypenny, Miss Moneypenny, Oh
Miss Moneypenny, Miss Moneypenny, Oh

Every job he saves a bone
Martini, mobile phone
Bastards getting in his way
They're all pushing daisies

All you need to make a movie is a gun and a ...

Modern Kids

( Hotel Persona feat. Brian Molko )

Modern kids future freaks
Following media beats
Everything is on the screen
Can't find a space
The computer erased your heart

We are modern kids
Living through a screen

No need to scour the streets
Your father is out drinking while
Your mother is home
Reading the bible
And you are on your own

Go ahead let your sun shine
You've got to do it your own way
Run away don't hesitate
Run away go run away go run away

Tenement kids flying on e
Pretending they don't give a shit
Dancing for something to be
So out of place
The computer erased their hearts

We are modern kids
Living through a screen

Grabbing today because tomorrow
Is too far away and you are alone

Go ahead let your sun shine
You've got to do it your own way
Run away don't hesitate
Run away go run away

They're gonna get you
Not gonna let you go
They're gonna mess you up
Not gonna let you be yourself
They're gonna tell you
Try to persuade you
They're always fucking with your head

Run Away …

Go ahead let your sun shine
You've got to do it your own way
Run away don't hesitate
Run away go run away

Run away…
Grabbing today because tomorrow is too far away

No Other God

( With Kristeen Young )

I saw your mom the other day.
She says you're wrong in every way.
Her little words sick like the flu.
I see the things they do to you.

She better cut it out.
You better cut her out.
You better cut her off.
You'll have no other god before me.

I saw you with your friends last night,
shooting shit by Bud's early Light.
You've got so much life inside you.
but they drag you down 'til you can't move.

They better cut it out.
You better cut them out.
You better cut them off.
You'll have no other god before me.

All you need, all you need, all you need is me.
Lucky you, lucky you, lucky you.you found me.
Whadja do? Whadja see? Whadja feel before me?
And my love is so, oh, oh, you'll wanna kill your friends.

I've seen you labour for your dreams.
Then, comatose when they're unseen.
And sometimes God is silent, too.
but God can't fill you like I do.

He better cut it out.
You better cut Him out.
You better cut Him off.
You'll have no other God before me.
You'll have no other God before me.
You'll have no other God before me.

Pink Water III

( Indochine Featuring Brian Molko )

English Version

Sky... I'm gonna leave tonight
You know, I've got a life to live
And it's getting late
So I'm gonna leave tonight
I can't decide if I'm the one you need or what you want out of life
I always thought you'd be the one to leave, the one to change your mind

I'm on a rocket to a dying star,
You have to stay behind
Can't take you with me cause it's very far
And you don't have the time
(Get me out of this place
Get me out of this place
Get me out of this place)

Sky... I'm gonna leave tonight
You know, I've got a life to live
And it's getting late
I can't decide if I'm the one you need or what you want out of life
I always thought you'd be the one to leave, the one to change your mind

I'm on a rocket to a dying star,
You have to stay behind
Before I met you I was crashing cars,
And I was doing fine
Get me out of this place,
Get me out of this town,
Before I drown in your deep pink water
Won't remember your face,
Can't remember your frown,
Because I'll drown in your deep pink water

Ten...Nine...Eight...Seven...Six...Five...Four...Three...Two...One

Sky... I'm gonna leave tonight
You know, I've got a life to live
And it's getting late
I'm on a rocket to a dying star,
You have to stay behind
Can't take you with me cause it's very far,
And you don't have the time
I'm on a rocket to a dying star
You have to stay behind
Before I met you I was crashing cars,
And I was doing fine

Get me out of this place,
Get me out of this town
Before I drown in your deep pink water
I won't remember your face
I can't remember your frown
Because I'll drown in your deep pink water

Get me out of this place,
Get me out of this town
Before I drown in your deep pink water
I won't remember your face
I can't remember your frown
Because I'll drown in your deep pink water

*** Thanx a lot to Black-Market-AshtrayAcadia for this one ***

French Version

Je pars, je ne reviendrai jamais
Bientôt le monde m'aura oublié tu sais...
Que j'aille...
Tu vois...

Je recherche un endroit pour me cacher
Et pour me fâner en paix
Ne jamais les croire
Quand ils t'en parleront
Si tu pouvais me voir...

Je partirai et je resterai
Seulement vêtue de toi
Souviens-toi encore
Quelques fois de moi...
Et ne leur pardonne pas

Get me out of this place
Get me out of this place
Get me out of this... place

Je pars je ne reviendrai jamais
Des roses
De l'eau de rose sur moi...
Deux filles dans un jardin
Un jardin étrange
Mais retiens-moi par la main
Et si demain
Tu ne me rejoins pas
Alors continue sans moi

Je partirai et je garderai que des restes de toi
Souviens-toi encore
Quelques fois de moi...
Mais ne leur pardonne pas

Get me out of this place, get me out of this town
Before I drown in your deep pink pink water
Won't remember you face, can't remember you frown
Because I'll drown in your deep pink water

Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one

Je pars, je ne reviendrai jamais
Bientôt le monde m'aura oublié tu sais...

Je partirai et je resterai
Seulement vêtue de toi
Souviens-toi encore
Quelques fois de moi...
Et ne leur pardonne pas

Get me out of this place, get me out of this town
Before I drown in your deep pink pink water
Won't remember you face, can't remember your frown
Because I'll drown in your deep pink water
Get me out of this place, get me out of this town
Won't remember your face, can't remember your frown
Because I'll drown in your deep pink water

Protège moi

(Once More With Feelings LP)

C'est le malaise du moment,
L'épidémie qui s'étend,
La fête est finie, on descend,
Les pensées qui glacent la raison.

Paupières baissées, visages gris,
Surgissent les fantômes de notre lit;
On ouvre le loquet de la grille
Du taudis qu'on appelle maison.

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me, protect me

Protège-moi, protège-moi
Protège-moi, protège-moi
Protège-moi, protège-moi
Protège-moi, protège-moi

Sommes-nous les jouets du destin
Souviens-toi des moments divins
Planant, éclatés au matin,
Et maintenant nous sommes tout seuls.

Perdus les rêves de s'aimer,
Le temps où on avait rien fait,
Il nous reste toute une vie pour pleurer
Et maintenant nous sommes tout seuls.

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me, protect me

Protect me from what I want
(Protège-moi, protège-moi)
Protect me from what I want
(Protège-moi, protège-moi)
Protect me from what I want
(Protège-moi, protège-moi)
Protect me, protect me

Protège-moi, protège-moi
Protège-moi de mes désirs

Protège-moi, protège-moi
Protège-moi, protège-moi

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me, protect me

(Protect me) Protect me from what I want
(Protect me) Protect me from what I want
(Protect me) Protect me from what I want
Protect me, protect me

(Protect me) Protect me from what I want
(Protect me) Protect me from what I want
(Protect me) Protect me from what I want
Protect me, protect me

Protège-moi, protège-moi

Requiem For A Jerk

( Gainsbourg - Brian Molko on Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited LP )

Listen to the organ that I play for you
Since you got no choice, hear me through
You look as if you like it, but you seem reserved
It's my requiem for a jerk

I wrote it in the bath on my breakfast tray
Cut my appetite for the day
I tried to raise a toast, ate this second verse
Buttered requiem for a jerk
It's an afternoon for mourners, but the tears don't come
Got what you deserved, the maximum

Well I'm getting sentimental but it's too much work
What's a requiem, to a jerk

Well the devil left a message
"Go try paradise
Hell's a lot too hot
Not too nice
Try to take on god
If you've got the nerve
Even I don't need
Stupid jerks"

Listen to the organ that I play for you
Since you got no choice, hear me through
You look as if you like it in your woolen shirt
It's my requiem for a jerk

I wrote it in the bath on my breakfast tray
Cut my appetite for the day
On your white-washed face
Blue steal prison wall
I'll write stupid jerk, that's all

Slackerbitch

It echoes in my brain
I didn't mean it
Pulses through my vein
I didn't mean it
I'm the one to blame
I didn't mean it
Did too much cocaine
I didn't mean it

Slackerbitch, fag hag whore
Looks real cute, her lips are sore
Slackerbitch, fag hag whore
Always comes back for more

Your memory will fade
I didn't mean it
You've always had it made
I didn't mean it
I know you feel betrayed
I didn't mean it
I just wanted to get layed
I didn't mean it

Slackerbitch, fag hag whore
Looks real cute, her lips are sore
Slackerbitch, fag hag whore
Always knocking on my door

You come across impure
I didn't mean it
God damn imature
I didn't mean it
You act so insecure
I didn't mean it
You hate me now, i'm sure
I didn't mean it

Slackerbitch, fag hag whore
Looks real cute, her lips are sore
Slackerbitch, fag hag whore
Dripping sex from every pore
Slackerbitch, fag hag whore
Looks real cute, her lips are sore
Slackerbitch, fag hag whore
Such a mother fucking bore


Smile

( Duet with Jane Birkin )

Brian Molko :
Don't stare at your face with your nose out of place
At the wrinkles where zits used to be
And remember that smiling uses less muscles
And frowning just makes you look ugly

Brian Molko & Jane Birkin :
So smile, smile
And the whole world will smile with you
So smile, Baby, smile
If the whole world just had a clue

Jane Birkin :
Don't mess with your man when he's selling you grams
He would kill you for less and then smile
And don't curse at a whore as you open the door
Cos' your service wont be with a smile

So smile, smile
And the whole world smiles with you
And smile, Baby, smile
If the whole world just had a clue

Brian Molko :
Don't sneer at your doctor or Gamble and proctor
Cos' they're just pawns in the game

Jane Birkin :
The perfect prescription is one that you're given
It's filled out in Jesus' name

Brian Molko :
Don't be scared of your preacher cos' hes just a leech
He's too busy cruising your ass

Jane Birkin :
There's a verse in the Bible
That says we're all liable
For everything that comes to pass

Brian Molko & Jane Birkin :
So smile, smile
And the whole world smiles with you
So smile, Baby, smile
If the whole world just had a clue
So smile, smile
Smile, smile
Smile, smile

Some

( Dream city film Club feat. Brian Molko )

Some like to dream
Some like to live
Some like to take
Some like to give
Some take enough
Some take it all
Some will rise
And some will fall
Some like it tight
Some like it loose
Some need a reason
Some need no excuse
Some like it dirty
Some like it clean
Some like it tender
And some like it lean
Some fuck for fun
Some for prestige
Some come on their feet (and)
Some come on their knees
Some say they're bent
Some say they're straight
Some come early
And some come late
I'm taking some
Now I'm taking some

The Extra

( B3 EP )

I try every day
To think of something deep to say
Cos I would like to find the words
That deserve to be heard

Sounds like words are out of style
Silence beckons down the murder mile
I keep on talking to the hand
In a language I don't understand

If I am an extra in the film of my own life
Then who the hell is the director
If I am an extra in the film of my own life
Will someone please turn off the camera

And show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live

I try every night
Not to argue, not to fuss and fight
But there's a riot in my head
Streets are bleeding and democracy is dead

Let's fight until the end of days
Let's destroy and let's devastate
We keep on talking to the hand
In a language we don't understand

If I am an extra in the film of my own life
Then who the hell is the director
If I am an extra in the film of my own life
Will someone please turn off the camera

And show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live

Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live

Show me how to live, show me how to live
(I am an extra in the film of my own life)
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live

Show me how to live, show me how to live
(I am an extra in the film of my own life)
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live

I try every day
To think of something deep to say

The metric system

( Trash Palace Feat. Brian Molko )

Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it

Rock boy is genital suck juice mad
His delicious apparatus would flutter and tremble after pubic worship
He would freeze it in a jar and sell it to celebrity lesbians

Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it

They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
You know they're down with the metric system
And they never fuck around
They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
You know they're down with the metric system
And they're payin by the pound

Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it

Rock boy is genital suck juice mad
His delicious apparatus would flutter and tremble after pubic worship
He would freeze it in a jar and sell it to celebrity lesbians

Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it

They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
You know they're down with the metric system
And they never fuck around
They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
You know they're down with the metric system
And they're payin by the pound

They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
You know they're down with the metric system
And they're payin by the pound

The Movie On Your Eyelids

(bonus track from the deluxe edition of the album Battle for the Sun)

I always watch you
When you're dreaming
Because I know it's not of me
I smoke a dozen cancer sticks
Imagine there are two or three ways
To make you love me
And not dream of someone else
Become the movie on your eyelids
The reflection of yourself
The reflection
Of yourself

I cry when I listen to you breathing
Because I know there's nothing else
The conscious of that crushing feeling
To know there's no connection left
That we're both going through the motions
That we're both living somewhere else
That the movie on your eyelids
Is no reflection
Of myself
It's no reflection
Of myself
It's no reflection
Of myself

I wanna be
I wanna be your movie
I wanna be
I wanna be your movie

Why can't you
Be me
Why can't you
Be me
Why can't you
Be me
Why can't you
Be me
Be me
Be me
Be
Me

Then the Clouds will open up for me

My guy is a tad transcontinental
But it keeps me enchained
Watch an old black and white movie
Fred and Ginger are too sentimental, crying in shame
I don't want to be forgotten
I can't be alone
So don't you dare leave me
It's like coming home
To skin that has died
Human voices like a drum
And they're looking right through me
Scatter the ashes one more time for me, one more time for me
My guy is a tad too ornamental
When he's frozen in space
Cut your eye far to me
A covered carcass is too elemental, caught underneath a subway
I don't want to be forgotten
I can't be alone
So don't you dare leave me
It's like coming home
To skin that has died
Human voices like a drum
And they're looking right through me
Scatter the ashes one more time for me, one more time for me
One more time for me, one more time for me
One more time for me, One more time for me
One more time for me, One more time for me
Trans-likened, twisting my ankle
Doing the grave dance
Narcotic? Yes please, I'll have a sample
Riding on my very last chance
Then the clouds will open for me
Gonna meet my Jesus Christ
I see history playing before me
For pleasure and passion you pay the price
Sadness the name of the spike that took me
I'll make it that's all
Like some raging, hard, horny Mephistopheles
Who came for my soul

*** Thanx a lot to Isaac & Cassiel who corrected a mistake ***

Time Is Money

( B3 EP )

Time
Time is money, bastard
And hope
Is all that you can steal
And time
Is happy ever after
With Jesus, Jesus,
Jesus, Jesus at the wheel

And you are so beautiful
That I would drink my fill
More pure and more suitable
Than any pint of poison
I could guzzle or spill

War
War is money, bastard
Cos fear
Keeps knocking at your door
But war
Is spreading like a cancer
With Jesus, Jesus
Jesus marching on before
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And you are so beautiful
That I will drink my fill
More pure and more suitable
Than any pint of poison
I could guzzle or spill

Love
Claims to have the answer
To all
Your troubles every day
But love
Love is money, bastard
So like Jesus, Jesus,
Jesus, give it all away

And you are so beautiful
That I will drink my fill
More pure and more suitable
Than any pint of poison
I could guzzle or spill

I could guzzle or spill
I could guzzle or spill
I could guzzle or spill
I could guzzle or spill

Twenty years

(Once More With Feelings LP)

There are twenty years to go
Twenty ways to know
Who'll wear
Who'll wear the hat

There are twenty years to go
The best of all I hope
Enjoy the ride
The medicine show

Thems the breaks
For we designer fakes
We need to concentrate on more than meets the eye

There are twenty years to go
The faithful and the low
The best of starts, the broken heart, the stone

There are twenty years to go
The punch drunk and the blow
The worst of starts, the mercy part, the phone

And thems the breaks
For we designer fakes
We need to concentrate on more than meets the eye

Thems the breaks
For we designer fakes
But it's you I take 'cause you're the truth not I

There are twenty years to go
A golden age I know
But all will pass will end too fast, you know

There are twenty years to go
And many friends I hope
Though some may hold the rose
Some hold the rope

That's the end and that's the start of it
That's the whole and that's the part of it
That's the high and that's the heart of it
That's the long and that's the short of it
That's the best and that's the test in it
That's the doubt the doubt, the trust in it
That's the sight and that's the sound of it
That's the gift and that's the trick in it

You're the truth not I
You're the truth, not I
You're the truth, not I
You're the truth, not I

You're the truth, not I
You're the truth, not I
You're the truth, not I
You're the truth, not I

To call in silence
To call in starts
Come together some
And so far it works
So call
Before you come down...

Somebody says
He's been around
And somebody says
It's been around...
It's been around...
It's been around...

Well now you need me more than I need you
Well now you need me more than I need you

Somebody says...
He's been around

Well now you need me more than I need you
Well now you need me more than I need you

Well now you need me more than I need you
Well now you need me more than I need you...

Unisex

(bonus track from the deluxe edition of the album Battle for the Sun)

Do me right, by you
And I'll do you right, by heaven
Along the avenues
We run, run, run, run, run, run for our lives

Promise me that we will make it through
Promise me that we will make it through

Inside we are Picasso blue
Outside it's Armageddon
So all that we can do
Is run, run, run, run, run, run for our lives

Promise me that we will make it through
Promise me that we will make it through
If we don't, I don't know what I'd do
So promise me that we will make it through

Don't worry, baby, it's just the end of the world
Don't worry, baby, don't worry...

Do me right, by you
No matter what may happen
Forever more and hither hereunto
We run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run...

Don't worry baby, it's just the end of the world
Don't worry baby, this place is broken and absurd

Don't worry baby, it's just the end of the world
Don't worry baby, don't worry...

Do me right, by you
And I'll do you right, by heaven

Waiting For The Son Of Man

Patience comes to the ugly, not me
Laughter comes to the lucky, not me
People in my head that won't stop talking
Nothing in my dream that isn't creepy crawling

Walking in the park and i think that i'm falling
Swimming in the sea and i think i'll
You guessed it
Only lifeguards
Only lifeguards
Packing all the time ??
Can save me

Waiting X3
For the son of man
For the son of man

Patience comes to the ugly, not me
Concentration comes to the ugly, not me
Nothing on the box that hasn't been born
No one in the street that isn't old

Driving in the car and i think that i'm crashing
Swimming in the Sea and i think that i'll
You guessed it
Only lifeguards X2
Packing all the time
Can save me

Waiting X3
For the son of man
For the son of man

Wouldn't It Be Good

(Nik Kershaw cover and B-side from the single For What It's Worth)

I got it bad
You don't know how bad I got it.
You've got it easy
You don't know when you've got it good.
It's getting harder
Just keeping life and soul together
I'm sick of fighting
Even though I know I should.
The cold is biting through each and every nerve and fiber
My broken spirit is frozen to the core
I don't want to be here

Wouldn't it be good to be in your shoes
Even if it was for just one day
Wouldn't it be good if we could wish ourselves away

You must be joking
You don't know a thing about it.
You've got no problems
I'd stay right there if I were you.
I got it harder
You couldn't dream how hard I got it
Stay out of my shoes
If you know what's good for you
The heat is stifling
Burning me up from the inside.
The cold is dripping from each and every pore
I don't want to be here no more
I don't want to be here no more

Wouldn't it be good to be in your shoes
Even if it was for just one day
Wouldn't it be good if we could wish ourselves away
Wouldn't it be good to be on your side
The grass in always greener over there
Wouldn't it be good if we could live without a care
Without a care
Without a care
Without a care
Without a care
