Paroles de Faces B

I know

(from She’s So High)

What you want to be is what I am
How you want to feel is how I feel
But nothing stays the same when I am here
Just waiting for it all to disappear
I know, I know, I know it’ll come between us
I know, I know
I’d like to get into that pretty head
Just to see, to see if you are dead
And it would amuse me just to see how
How you feel about me and this crowd
I know, I know, I know it’ll come between us
I know, I know

Down

(from She’s So high)

You and me we try to change
We try so hard it’s all the same
I’m just waiting for it to begin again
Ahhh
I’m forgetting who I am
That makes me wonder who I am
Trying so hard to find sense when there’s none at all
Ahhh (2x)
Down (20x)
Staring at the sun all day
If you stare too long you get burned away
Now there’s nothing left of me so have it all
Ahhh
Forgetting again I blame
My past has just faded away
Now I can tell you everything there is to know about
Ahhh (2x)
Down (40x)

Inertia

(from There’s No Other Way)

Fear of being left behind
Can take you over
Suddenly you will choke
Maybe it’s just a joke
I’m not sure of you
I can’t hear you now
There’s too much that’s going around
You seem a worried fool
So don’t think I’m cool
Makes me me unsure
Of you-
Fear of being left alone
Can take you over
Slowly you will choke
And say it’s just a joke
I’m not sure–of you

Mr Briggs

(from There’s No Other Way)

Mr Briggs is on holiday
But he stays in his room
He’s too cold to go out for his evening smoke
The lady down the hallway
Is deaf and dumb to what you say
She’s too busy dreaming of chihuahua dog
Say goodbye
Slowly drift away
To somewhere
Mr Briggs needs sleep now
He’s been up for a week
He can hear a buzz buzz buzzing in his head
He has a three-bar heater
But it can’t keep him warm
If he bought another then he’d have three more
Say goodbye
Slowly drift away
To somewhere
Mr Briggs while on holiday
Never left his bed
Walked around in circles but only in his head
The lady down the hallway
Is running out of pills
She could pull herself together but she knows she never will
Say goodbye
Somewhere

I’m All Over

(from There’s No Other Way)

I always knew that there would be someone somewhere
Who had it in for me
I always knew that there would be no-one nowhere
Who was anything like me
I’m all over
All over
All over
I’m the only one
I’m hanging around
Going nowhere
Waiting for it to happen to me
I always knew that there would be no-one nowhere
Who was anything like me
I’m all over
All over
All over
You’re the only one
I always knew that there would be someone somewhere
Who had it in for me
I always knew that there would be no-one nowhere
Who was anything like me
I’m all over
All over
All over
You’re the only one

Won’t Do It

(from There’s No Other Way)

So much to be and so much to see
There’s very little here for me
It’s really hard to get through
So won’t do it anymore
Don’t feel it anymore
Won’t do it anymore
Can’t feel it anymore
There’s so much I’d like to say
You’re not bothered either way
It’s really hard to talk to you
So won’t do it anymore
Don’t do it anymore
Won’t do it anymore
Can’t feel it anymore

Day Upon Day

(from There’s No Other Way)

Waiting on this empty day
It’s just the same as any day
An’ although I got nothing to say
I’m going to say it anyway
Day, day upon day, day upon day
Day upon day
Day, day upon day, day upon day
Day upon day
Everybody’s here with me
We’re in the smallest rooms you see
An’ although we got nothing to do
We going to do what do I do

Explain

(from Bang)

It’s pointless to explain why
There’s nothing I can say
My words would all be meaningless
Anyway
It seems I can’t be trusted
And I don’t disagree
What made you think I ever really
Wanted to be ?
I can’t explain why
And I don’t know when
I’m eber going to want to
See her again
Son don’t ask why I came here
There’s nothing I can say
I don’t think I’ll be staying very long
Anyway
I’m trying to find out why
I came here at all
I don’t think it was to see you
After all

Luminous

(from Bang)

Don’t look at me as
Your only regret what you don’t see
You know more than I
So think for me
Think what your not
Ah ah ah ah
Love substitute for the
Never knew who you were
Half your life has been explained
You want the other half
Ah ah ah ah
Don’t look at me as though I’m not here
Your only regret what you don’t see
Half my life has been explained

Uncle Love

(from Bang)

Uncle Love just got a message from God
That you are driving him crazy
Tomorrow he says the doctor comes
With a drink to make him lazy
Did you realize that Uncle Love’s
Got an 8 ball in his hand
Everything sticks to you like glue
But it just makes you lazy
You should hear what they say
About you everyday
You should hear what they say
Uncle Love’s going to get you
Uncle Love just got a message from God
That you are driving him crazy
Everything sticks to you like glue
But it just makes you lazy

Popscene

(from Popscene)

A fervoured image of another world
Is nothing in particular now
And imitation comes naturally
But I’ve never really stopped to think how
And everyone is a clever clone
A chrome-covered clone am I
So in the absence of a way of life
I’ll repeat this again and again and again
Hey hey, come out tonight (x2)
Popscene, alright
Yeah (x5)
I’m leaving town to run away
Run into your twisted arms
No queues and there’s no panic there
Just dangling your feet in the grass
My lack of natural lustre now
Seems to be losing me friends
So in the absence of a way of life
I’ll repeat this again and again and again
Hey hey, come out tonight (x4)
Popscene, alright
So in the absence of a way of life
I’ll repeat this again and again and again
Hey hey, come out tonight (x2)
Popscene, alright

Mace

(from Popscene)

Pedaling on a bicycle
I’m on my way to make a call
I’ve tried to touch you
Through the double glazing
But the curtains were drawn and the family out the way
You used to know but now you don’t (x3)
No one can see when they’ve got mace in their eyes
They’re papering the walls and the windows
No logic here in or out
The heating’s on and I’m feeling drowsy
I fall asleep and dream of burning down the house
You used to know but now you don’t (x3)
No one can see when they’ve got mace in their eyes
I’m pedaling on my bicycle
I’m on my way to make a call
The sun is out and I’m feeling drowsy
I fall asleep and dream of burning down the house
You used to know but now you don’t (x6)
No one can see when they’ve got mace in their eyes

Badgeman Brown

(from Popscene)

This is the voice of someone
Calling from a lonely hill
To the hard of hearing
For those who never will
A long legged someone
Seen walking away from home
Look a vacant dreamer
Walking alone alone
Ways that turn and turn
Which is what we’d learn
As suffering believers
In the book of Badgeman Brown
They’re dropping like flies
In a suburban house
From a lack of anything
Anything to keep their hands in
And the town keeps screaming
From a lonely hill
Another lack of people
Those who never will
Ways that turn and turn
Which I what we’d learn
As suffering believers
In the book of Badgeman Brown
This is the voice of someone
Calling from a lonely hill
For the hard of hearing
For those who never will
The days will turn and turn
Which is what we’d learn
As average believers
In the book of Badgeman Brown

I’m Fine

(from Popscene)

Lowest man is always fighting
He’s hitting his head against the wall
He’ll do it to you
He’ll do it again, he knows what to do
I’ve always found you complicated
I’ve always tried to shut you up
I do what I do
I do it again, again, again
And I’d like you to know
It’s alright
It’s the world around us
I need you to know
I’m alright
No need to worry about me
Cause I’m just fine
Lowest man has lost his meaning
Smashing his head against the wall
He’ll do it to you, he’ll do it again
He’s coming back to you
You give me the strangest feeling
You shut me of myself
You do it to me
Then you do it again, again, again, again

Into Another

(from For Tomorrow)

It starts feeling now
It makes no inference of difference
It still won’t see it’s his
Faint from lack of air
It makes a whistle with a twistle
But no one can hear
Didn’t stay long
I had to go away to stay
As long as I could
So I’m happy here
Cause here is where the heart is
I know you think that too
Into another
You and me
Am I dead
Sleep in Harlow’s bed
Listening to our tune
With headphone and volume on
I can read your lips
And in a clinical term
« I hear, » it said
« Everything is beautiful, but nothing hurt »

Hanging Over

(from For Tomorrow)

I’m alive
I can breathe the air
I can hurt you
I can float up here
So soft and tingling
You can’t touch me
I’m floating away
I woke up
And went down next door
I’m getting up with nothing on my mind
I went down the stairs
With a pain in my head
I should have never got out of bed
Then everything shattered
Just at the point that it mattered (x2)
Aha
I’m alive I can breathe the air
I can hurt you
I can fall down there
Right into your mind
Don’t put it around
You can’t catch me
And carried away
I woke up, woke up every day
There is noting, nothing to say
Halfway down the stairs
I feel a pain in my chest
I should have never got out of bed
Then everything shattered
Just at the point that it mattered (x2)
Aha
I’m alive, I can breathe the air
I can hurt you
Halfway down the stairs
I get a pain in my chest
I should never got out of bed
I should never ever ever
I should never.

Peach

(from For Tomorrow)

Chemical Eats
Best part of the peach
You’re always the way you are
What of that going to close you in
You got a gaping hole in your head
I’d let the birds nest there instead
Aha aha aha aha
A gun in your pocket
And hair in a locket
Around your neck
From the girl you once loved
where is she now, you’ve gone crazy
You’ve got a gaping hole in your head
I’d let the birds nest there instead
Aha aha aha aha
You’ve got a gaping hole in your head
I’d let the birds nest there instead (x4)
Aha aha aha aha

Bone Bag

(from For tomorrow)

When you see in see you dancing
Own reflection was never bent
Be a man can shake you bone bag
One day up is another down
I don’t want to hurt, no not ever
No not ever
This is my street, I stay here and sleep
You’re outside on sunny days
Nicotine flow stops a pain grow
Stay a while so nearly there
I don’t want to hurt you, no not ever
No not ever
This is my street I stay here and sleep
You’re outside on sunny days
Be a man can shake you bone bag
One day up is another day

When The Cows Come Home
(from For Tomorrow)

Good morning

Wake up
Wake up with purpose and polite efficiency
Stuff vitamin pills down your health guarantee
A kiss and cuddle with a lucky girl
You get fed and watered
Makes your hair curl
And when the day draws in
You put on a record
Put on something gentle
And wait for the cows to come home
Wake up a little voice says
To you eagerly
You mustn’t let yourself sink financially
Don’t listen to the accusation that you’re tight
You could be the first man on your street to get it right
And when the day draws in
You going to go into waltz time
For once it was a good time
Wait for the cows to come home
All your life
Ha da de da da
Ha da de da da
Ha da da de da
Ha da de da da da
Wake up with purpose and polite efficiency
So you get fed and watered with good company
And when the day draws in
You go into waltz time
For once it’s a good time
Wait for the cows to come home
All your life

Beachcoma

(from For Tomorrow)

You’re outside on sunny days
Nicotine flow stops a pain grow

Young and Lovely

(from Chemical World)

Friday’s child is planning to go out for the first time
Says
Don’t worry Mum
I won’t be out that late
Done me playing those passive games right now
They’re out of date
You’re awfully sweet
Haven’t got the time
Growing up so fast
Got better things to do
You can get what you want
So young and lovely
Kicking around in the centre of the town
Looking in shop windows
Those mannequins
Look far too real at night
Friday’s child doesn’t know if it’s awake
Or if it’s dreaming
Says
Don’t worry Dad
I’ll do my bit
I’ll raise the flag
I’ll be just like you
You can get what you want
So young and lovely
Don’t worry Mum
I’m not that dumb
I’ll be just like you
Oh, no, why
Why d’you do it ?

Es Schmecht

(from Chemical World)

Looking out for number one
The conversation in the dayroom’s gone
It’s a brutal thought but you thought it
And in the future it’ll be the same
Waltzing on an autobahnThere is cause for alarm
It’s a neurotic thought but you thought it
And in the future it’ll be the same

Maggie May

(from Chemical World)

Wake up Maggie
I think I’ve got something to say to you
It’s late September
And I really should be back at school
I know I keep you amused
But I feel I’m being used
O Maggie I couldn’t have tried any more
you led me away from home
Just to save you from being alone
You stole my heart
That’s what really hurts
All I needed was a friend of lend a guiding hand
You turned into my lover
And mother what a lover you wore me out
Al you do is wreck my bed
And in the morning kick me in the head
O Maggie I couldn’t have tried anymore
You led me away form home
Just to save you from being alone
You stole my heart
I couldn’t leave you if I tried
I suppose I could collect my books and go back to school
Or steal my daddy’s cue
And make a living out of playing pool
I’ll find myself a rock n roll band
That needs a helping hand
Maggie I wish I’d never
Seen your face
You made a first class fool out of me
But I was blind as a fool can be
You stole my heart
But I love you anyway

Never Clever

(from Chemical World)

I would talk on request
I’m never getting drepressed
For a letter request
The public gets what’s best
Gene is dead
More or less
It’s never clever oh oh
It’s never nothing oh oh
It’s never clever oh oh
I’m not like you
I’m doing nothing to prove
You’re doing nothing to prove
It’s double fit, double quick

Dizzy

(from Sunday Sunday)

I pump poison
Into my body
To forget
That I am me
It feels good
Wonderful
I forget I have feelings at all
You’re dizzy
I floated up
Fifteen miles high
Stuck my head through
All the holes in our sky
I looked out across the universe
And thought of you
You’re dizzy
And I am dizzy too
I became lunatic
With rolling eyes
Squirming on the ground
Frozen in ice
Called to my mother
Said « Mother, please
Feed me before the sky
Falls in on me »
You’re dizzy

Fried

(from Sunday Sunday)

Oh you are very strange
Sometimes I think you’ve gone insane
Twisted hearts you’ve gone insane
In this giddy world
Couldn’t you begin to go
Where odd lines we hardly know
Couldn’t you put in a goal
Just for me
Did I say I want to know
Talking about a goal
Would you please leave me alone
Can’t you see I want to be on my own
Oh I would like to give you your head
Just to see if you are dead
Oh I’d like to get into that pretty head
And it would amuse me to see
How you feel about me
How you feel about always getting fried
Did I say I wan to know
We’re talking about a goal
Would you please leave me alone
Can’t you see I want to be on my own
Can’t you see I want to be on my own
Did I say I wan to know
We’re talking about a goal
Would you please leave me alone
Can’t you see I want to be on my own
Can’t you see I want to be on my own
Oh I’m going to fry
Oh I’m going to fry
Oh I’m going to fry

Long Legged

(from Sunday Sunday)

ur head
Id let the birds nest there instead
Aha aha aha aha
A gun in your pocket
And hair in a locket
Around your neck
From the girl you once loved
where is she now, you’ve gone crazy
You’ve got a gaping hole in your head
I’d let the birds nest there instead
Aha aha aha aha
You’ve got a gaping hole in your head
I’d let the birds nest there instead (x4)
Aha aha aha aha

Daisy Bell (A Bicycle Made For 2)

(from Sunday Sunday)

There is a flower within my heart
Daisy, Daisy
Planted one day by a glancing Dad
Whether she loves me or loves me not
Sometimes it’s hard to tell
Yet I am longing to share the lot
A beautiful daisy bell
Daisy, Daisy give me your heart to do
I’m half crazy hopeful in love with you
It won’t be a stylish marriage
I can’t afford the carriage
But you look sweet upon the street
On a bicycle built for two
We will go tandem as man and wife
Daisy, Daisy
Peddling our way down the road of life
I and my daisy bell
When the roads and we both dispise
Please men the lambs as well
There are bright lights in those dasling ice
A beautiful daisy bell
Daisy, Daisy give me your heart to do
I’m half crazy, Hopeful in love with you
It won’t be a stylish marriage
I can’t afford the carriage
But you look sweet upon the street
On a bicycle built for two
I’ll stand by you in wear or well daisy, Daisy
You’ll be the bell we’ll try to rip you know
You’ll be the bell we all try to rip you know
Sweet little daisy bell, You’ll take the lead in each trip we take
And if I dropped out, I will say here’s the drink by beautiful daisy bell
Daisy, Daisy give me your heart to do
I’m half crazy, Hopeful in love with you
It won’t be a stylish marriage
I can’t afford the carriage
But you look sweet upon the street
On a bicycle built for two
Oh daisy, Daisy give me your heart to do
I’m half crazy, Hopeful in love with you
It won’t be a stylish marriage
I can’t afford the carriage
But you look sweet upon the street
On a bicycle built for two (x3)
For two (x4)

Magpie

(from Girls & Boys)

I was angry with my friend
I told my wrath, my wrath did end
I was angry with my foe
I told it not, my wrath did grow
And I watered it in fears
Night and morning with my tears
And I sunnd it with smile
And with soft deceitful wiles
And it grew both day and night
Till it bore an apple bright
And my foe beheld it shine
And he knew that it was mine
And into my garden stole
When the night had veiled the pole
In the morning, glad, I see
My foe outstretched beneath the tree
And sometimes I
See magpie

People In Europe

(from Girls & Boys)

Honi soit qui mal pense, wo kann affen etwa sonst
Dos cervesos, por favor, zu heisen, yes doch
Ha ha, sir, et paradis, jacqueteure, au secours, mon taille
Europe is a OK, hola del puerto
Ba ba ba ba (x3)
People in Europe
Ciao ciao bella, Monaco, bon voyage in Sverige
Kom nu med, vi far dricka manana
Honi soit qui mal y pense, wo kann etwa sonst
Dos calvesos, por favor, svenskar in James Baum

Peter Panic

(from Girls & Boys)

Hello Peter Panic
You’ve landed on our planet
What a strange thing you are
With little pissy eyes
You got in the television
Turned us all old and wisened
Then disappeared
To a distant star
And we remember you as
Peter Panic
Who lives forever
Peter Panic
As light as a feather
And he says it’s ok
When you blow him away
He’ll be back for you some other day
When you’re running out of sugar
He left his secret with the chemist
Who made it taste very pleasant
Now everyone
Has gone to his star
Happy to be with…

Threadneedle Street

(from To The End)

The time has come
Not to be cautious
He must be careful not to make mistakes
For every half hour
In twenty-four
And operations rose
Faster than they did yesterday
And the lending rates on your side
So there won’t be
Much of a problem
Then past midnight
There is a rise
When everybody’s asleep at home
He becomes nervous
And sees a change
Today Futures
Watch the markets from the street
In a pocket in a grey flannel suit
Read tomorrow’s crash today
And check your pulse
Base metals crawled onto the kerb
And softs dropped in a summer turn
And sugar melted in the mouth
Of a rude girl
Who knew a better option
She thinks for a while
And it could be
A long time before he thinks again
And then he looks at the papers
And looks again
Today Futures

Got Yer!

(from To The End)

Look at Him, Grumpy old man
You sour old bed pan
He’s gone dropped his fag He’s got a fly between his ears
it catches life
And buzzes in my head
It’s a long time isn’t it
fumes of life
Who put that bleeding goose in here?
Got yer!

Theme From An Imaginary Film
(from ParkLife)

What if I told you I love you
What if I called you with rhyme
In this world there’s nothing that’s left
Well nothing that’s new
What if I told you without you
Loving is limply a lie
Although she moves into the night
O tell me your mine
Please say it’s true
O shame is over
I was the light and the days of them all
Well push me over
I’m flat on my back and having a ball
And just look who’s laughing
What if I flew like a dove dear
What if I would you in rhythm
There’s nothing left
Nothing that’s good left for me now
O I’ll just go and sleep with strangers
I’ll live like a lord in a tower
‘Cos in the city there’s too much air
That I can’t dream at night
Well not anymore
O shame it’s over
It’s been such fun and we had a ball
Well push me over
But I’ll be the last of people to fall
Well just look who’s laughing
O shame it’s over
How like a cow bloated on grass
Well push me over
Me on my back and you on your arse
Such a shame it’s all over
There are so few days left to grasp
So push me over
We on our back and you on your lazy arse
Well just look whose laughing

Rednecks

(from End Of A Century)

Alright (Ready)
Alex :
Rollin’ ? Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ ?
Graham :
Yeah, are we ?
Rollin’, rollin’ … Howdy boys.
Alright, ya’ll, let’s sit real comfy, with your real comfy 10-gallons on
the back of your head.
Just relax. Ok, (It’s good to be here) here we go, boys…
I’m a trucking redneck and I just refuse to die. (He won’t die)
I was built big and strong on the state’s best apple pie.
I’m better than those limey pinheads in Europe, 12-gauge at their backs,
hell, won’t stop their moping.
I’m a trucking red stop, and I just refuse to die.
Alex :
Graham, you will never die.
That’s what I call chemistry.
Graham :
You’re American, you ain’t ever gonna die.
You play billiards, you write that down.
You ain’t never gonna die.
Good lord above will take care of that.
I get free coffee fill-ups at my favorite Denny’s place.
Find a couple of teabags and kick them in the face.
Sure is damn good thumpage in that waitress’ ass.
When I go on tour, I’m gonna get me a pass.
Hell, don’t want no fucking limey, getting on my god damn case, Woo !
Alex :
That’s in the east wood, you go to the wood and go east, it’s in the
east wood.
Graham :
Go west, brother.
We sure showed them in Jim sum.
Any of, uh, my, the boys here want to say a few words to the audience at home ?
Alex :
Well, you’ve grown up and I obviously haven’t.
Damon :
So funny…
Graham :
Woo !
I hope you go on happy with your Miller’s Coors Lite.
Alex :
I’ve got every Beatles record.

One Born Every Minute

(from Country House)

Here we go (here we go)
Here we go again
Dirty knickers pop music vodka and gin
Your knees are sore you must have beenin the wars
There’s something to celebrate in our lives and
Here’s where it begins
Oh, well see how we’ve grown
One gets born every minute
You’re never, never alone
One gets born every minute of the day
Dosey clocks to cause the volitile tots to
Sleep together if or never we’re on this then
Oh here we go (here we go)
Here we go again
Dirty knickers pop music
Vodka beer and gin
Oh, well see how we’ve grown
One gets born every minute
You’re never, never alone
One gets born every minute of the day

Ultranol

(from The Universal)

For coughs and colds and scabby holes
Itchy pimples
Unseemly moles
For funny turns and chinese burns
For aching heads we’re not concerned
For staying lively getting it nightly
This we garantee
That’s ultranol here’s the new remedy
Before you go to bed take 2 or 3
When you wake up you’ll feel better
For aches and pains and jellied brains
Help you sleep and smile again
They’re aimless, blameless, nameless
You get much more although you pay less
Revitalise that sexual drive
In fact be born again
Yes, ultranol will put you on the map
Take 4 or 5 then have a little nap
When you wake up you’ll feel better
For coughs and colds and you scabby holes
Keep you young although you are feeling old
If you’re not protected you’re gonna get it
So suck them and see you won’t regret it
Suck them and see.

No Monsters In Me

(from The Universal)

Gary Golf stops all the clocks
With night nurse slippers and socks
He tries to keep his thoughts clean
By washing with Listerine
A little peck on the cheek
In dazzed pyjamas and sheets
Keep the light on I’m not tired
I want to read my Dick Francis
Dirty fraulines and nasty nazis
La la la la, la la la la, there are no monsters in me
La la la la, la la la la, there are no monsters in me
Car alarms letting off steam
Gary hears them in his dreams
Panic outside is seeping in
Just easy listening to him
Turns in his sleep and smiles to himself
There are no monsters in me
Cause Gary’s out on the green
No growing pains for him
Cause Gary Golf ball eyes is not in

The Man Who Left Himself

(from Stereotypes)

All good people
Your time will come
Work forever
And still not be done
Close your tired eyes
No one knows you’ve gone
It’s not forever
But today you’ve become
The man who left himself
Don’t belong here
Your heart beats too fast
Feel the mis-beat
It starts and it stops
Don’t be frightened
These things never last
Maybe tomorrow
Your time will have past
It’s the man who left himself
The man who left himself
(Love anyone…)

Tame

(from Stereotypes)

Disguise this morning
Airplane passes
At the slight angle
Second one follows
Reaching no evidence
Continues to baffle her
But she’s not stupid
She’s just friendly
I don’t know what to do
Today is up to you
Can I pass through you?
Tame, Tame, Tame, Tame
Tame, Tame, Tame, Tame
Tame, Tame, Tame, Tame
Tame, Tame, Tame, Tame
Applause in background
Their coffee mornings
They show Bonanzas and
What to buy there
So taste of horrors in
Oh well city’s hot
You fall to pieces when
I must be dreaming
I don’t know what to do
Today is up to you
Can I pass through you?
And I don’t know what to do
My absence is due
Can I pass, can I?

A Song

(from Charmless Man)

When he speaks to her
Without looking at her
You sing the driest of words
With his mind on
What’s on the telly
He rummors a song
As he staggers through the air
Knowing he won’t get home
To the world of people and cars alone

All Your Life

(from Beetlebum)

Put a new shirt on, wash my face in beer
Fall through the crowd, and disappear
In the teenage magazines, and shopping malls
Walk through the wildlife for miles, and miles
Hold my breath and count a hundred and ten
And back up the hill to start again
Watching spiders on the bedroom ceiling
They got big plans, so they’re not breathing
Feel the frisson of tomorrow today
I could get up but it won’t go away
Do nothing to impress my friends
Just rub my eyes for hours on end
Oh England, my love, you lost me, made me look a fool
I need someone to tell me
Everything’ll be alright
I need someone who’ll hold me
When the day turns to night
I need someone who loves me
More than you do
Oh we say that’s not true
And you and me in line as double bill
Surrogate heroes on TV and films
I’ve never met anyone like you
I’ve never done the things you like to do
On the way to heaven in a comedy car
The new stars of melancholia
There’s nothing to get angry about
We’re too hung over to be bad shout ? ? ?
Oh England, my love, you’ve tattooed your past all over me
I need someone to tell me
Everything’ll be alright
I need someone who’ll hold me
When the day turns to night
I need someone who loves me
More than you do
Oh we say that’s not true
And you and me in line as double bill
Surrogate heroes and welcome you will
I’ve got a feeling that nobody’s sold
I’ve got a feeling that I should let myself go, go, go
And days will be like this
All your life
And days will be like this
All your life
And people will always miss
All your life
And people will always miss
All your life
And days will be like this x3

Woodpigeon Song

(from Beetlebum)

Disingenious and tame
Everybody makes mistakes, sometimes
Woodpigeon in strip light
Does it every night
It’s a feeling that’s around
It’s a feeling that’s around
Woodpigeon in strip lightDoes it every night

Dancehall

(from Beetlebum)

There are ghosts in hereAn easy laze
They dance all night
With a vacant gaze
They stand in rows
And buy alcohol
We’re having fun at the dancehall
I’ve got my pills and I’ve got my toys
Pin-up girls and pin-up boys
My lips are frozen to another can
I could kill him, but I just kiss his hand

Bustin’ + Dronin’
(from Song 2)

Coming from your eyes
No more selfish lies
It’s an awful week
Marry me in jeans
There’s nothing on the wall
In the bitter hall
The neon lights are on
That’s where my bitter gone
Man alive
Adrenalin is weak
Shifting as we speak
And the beers flow down
Ritual underground
And it seems to change
Weather, it a game
The neon lights are on
Stellar we’ll take off

Get Out Of Cities

(from Song 2)

I got the licence
I got dirty knees
I’ve been swinging in trees
A paid up member
I’ve been eating fleas
Running naked in the breeze
Catatonia itch
Catalonia stitch
Oh, I’ve been running for miles
I start to tingle from my head to my toes
Oh, tomorrow it’s a taint on the nose
hetty hetty hetty hetty oh it’s a taint on the nose
Get out of cities, return to the trees, yeah yeahGet out of cities,
return to the trees, yeah yeah
Get out of cities, return to the trees, yeah yeah
Get out of cities, return to the trees
She’s in a sort ofA capital freeze
Cos the petrol’s done a whole lot for me ? ? ?
Catatonia itch
Catalonia stitch
Pray tomorrow is it-chy itchy itch
Go to yourself on your map
Get out of cities, return to the trees, yeah yeah
Get out of cities, return to the trees, yeah yeah
Get out of cities, return to the trees, yeah yeah
Get out of cities, return to the trees
Get out of cities, return to the trees, yeah yeah
Get out of cities, return to the trees, yeah yeah
Get out of cities, return to the trees, yeah yeah
Get out of cities, and return to the trees
Get out of cities, return to the trees, yeah yeah
Get out of cities, return to the trees, yeah yeah
Get out of cities, return to the trees, yeah yeah
Get out of cities, and return to the trees

Polished Stone

(from Song 2)

Now I fall to the groundI can’t get up, well never mind
I know you’ll pull me up by my bones
And say I’m sand to polished stone
Today’s gone and it won’t be longBefore we fall asleep and forget what
we’ve done
We won’t get up cos today is fun
We’re alone
Now you bite my tongueAnd when the alcohol’s gone
I won’t feel a thing
So you can’t carry on
Today is gone and it won’t be long
Before we fall asleep and forget what we’ve done
We won’t get up cos today is funWe’re alone
It’s numb
It’s numb
It’s numb

Swallows In A Heatwave

(from M.O.R.)

I want to contribute to natural selection
Find myself a razor
Watch Swallows In A Heatwave
meet the rebel leaders
They’re coming cause they need us
Ooohooooohoooooo
Ooohooooohoooooo
I don’t have a history.
For religion
Going out to get one
Get into my Volvo
Drive into the Mountains
Watch Swallows in a heatwave
Ooohoooooohooooo

All Your Life

(from Beetlebum)

Put a new shirt on, wash my face in beer

Watching spiders on the bedroom ceiling
They got big plans, so they’re not breathing

Oh England, my love, you lost me, made me look a fool

REFRAIN :

Oh England, my love, you’ve tattooed your past all over me

REFRAIN

I’ve got a feeling that nobody’s sold
I’ve got a feeling that I should let myself go, go, go

All your life (x2)

And all your days will be like this

Black Book

(from Music Is My Radar)

Put away my black book
Put it on the fire
Getting out the side door
You are my one desire
Baby when you hold me
I feel see you’re everything
Baby when you touch me
I need nothing no more
Put away my black book
Put in on the fire

Don’t give up on me Lord
Take my spirit higher
Nothing can behold me
Don’t put me on the fire
Baby when you hold me
I will see no fear
Baby when you touch me
You see it in my eyes
Put away my black book
Put it on the fire

I’ve made up my mind
I got nothing to hide
I’ve made up my mind
I got nothing to hide

Give me my soul

The Outsider

(from Think Tank)

I got something on my ego
The plastic surgery will melt
Its like getting kinda me so
It comes over when you come

I need to call it out my system
I find the good and kick it out
When the wind blows the stars don’t shine
I find the good and kick it out

I got day day day day day day day today
The error takes some parts so stay away
I find myself alone
Just staring down the phone
I got day day day day day day day today

I see shadows in the night grow
I see dancing disease
I don’t fear very easily
I gotta get some light relief

I got day day day day day day day today
The error takes some parts so stay away
I find myself alone
Just staring down the phone
I got day day day day day day day today

Alone, alone, alone, alone…

I got day day day day day day day today
The error takes some parts so stay away
I find myself alone
Just staring down the phone
I got day day day day day day day today
