Your love cut to the bone Been kissed by the devils lips Like a film by Oliver Stone Those words spit from the dark I'm hanging on as I feel there's a spark My god say what you mean Oooooh It's tragic And all these ghosts are the mess I'm in All your hate is mesmerising And I just can't stand the mess I'm in I resonate when you strike up a tone Love falls on a deaf heart There's nothing, nothing at all Low down, under cover You can't fix yourself by breaking another My god say what you feel Oooooh It's tragic And all these ghosts are the mess I'm in All your hate is mesmerising And I just can't stand the mess I'm in

Ooooh ooh ooh oooooh oh Ooooh ooh ooh oooooh oh Ooooh ooh ooh oooooh oh Ooooh ooh ooh oooooh oh I know you want it. I know you've seen I there Need to believe it. I just don't care So now we've got it. Why not abuse it You're all going down. I'm all safe and sound Ooooh ooh ooh oooooh oh won't be around Ooooh ooh ooh oooooh oh at the end Ooooh ooh ooh oooooh oh won't be around Ooooh ooh ooh oooooh oh at the end I got friends in higher places I've got the means to take us all down If I sound proud. If I sound elated I'm full of promises I will not deliver Ooooh ooh ooh oooooh oh won't be around Ooooh ooh ooh oooooh oh at the end Ooooh ooh ooh oooooh oh won't be around Ooooh ooh ooh oooooh oh at the end

We keep stopping and starting Catching a break and then failing Who are you with today? How do I know when you live so far away Are we doomed? Would not have thought it from the outset But we've consumed more than 2 sides of this story I don't want to be alone but I am with you You keep chopping and changing Moving around and re-framing Who will you be today? I feel like I'm fading away Are we doomed? Would not have thought it from the outset But we've consumed more than 2 sides of this story I don't want to be alone but I am with you So then friend Is this the end? Through the doors So then friend Is this the end? Through the doors Are we doomed? Would not have thought it from the outset But we've consumed more than 2 sides of this story I don't want to be alone but I am with you

Do you spend your days wishing that you were someone else but yourself? It can't be easy when your own mirror disagrees with you I know Judy, she moved onto your street two doors down She said that your voice tells a different story And we are all here waiting One time you're He The next time you're She You're going back and forth again I don't think it's fair to say we don't care You need to make up your mind You're busy changing, you're re-arranging parts that were not there before Do you spend your days hoping That you could one day become someone else There's something radiant about you today The words spill from you This operation could make the changes But It's all forever One time you're He The next time you're She You're going back and forth again I don't think it's fair to say we don't care You need to make up your mind You're busy changing, you're re-arranging parts that were not there before

All my dreams have a cameo from you It was long ago but you're not done with me it seems I've never been particularly good at letting go You don't make it easy feeling forever thirteen This old house Made from all the usual stuff All these rooms built with all the regular things Why won't you leave me How do you see me I want you to know I can't come back to you anymore Could this be the field where I died It's been here through all the structures built through time Every other battle, in the turrets we stood our ground I'm not a hostage to nostalgia but I tell ya I can't be free This old house Made from all the usual stuff All these rooms built with all the regular things Why won't you leave me How do you see me I want you to know I can't come back to you anymore

Like the magic of a Polaroid it's true Kodachrome, Red, Green and Blue Reveals itself immediately A chemical reaction in a fraction of the time it took to say good bye. Tick Tock father time Moves us along the line All things they change Apart from my dancing heart it pushed real hard right from the start I can't see you everyday When you live so far away You'll teach me and I'll teach you You got me seeing through eyes all brand new Tick Tock father time Moves us along the line All things they change Apart from my dancing heart it pushed real hard right from the start

I'm a seed I'm in need contact I know a language or two I'm a drone I'm an empire rising I'm a martyr for the mass I am dust I am tree sap forming I am eclipsed most of the time Time, time We all end Just as we started off You're just a part of me And all smiles they belong to me I'm alone I'm the big hand static I'm an hour glass on it's side I am proud I am striped of decision I am oblivious to you I am blind I wear calm like armour I am all out of luck Time, time We all end Just as we started off You're just a part of me And all smiles they belong to me

Of all the nights I remember That appertain to me and you You came to me like you meant it You said "Until the end." You got me dripping with these feelings They are leaking in the gutter This tangible, palpable crisis It just keeps getting bigger No erasing all that came before That's why in my head you're... Already gone Already gone I've been left at the alter I've been messed around More times than I care to mention So my doubts growing loud You can tell me the words The phrases I want to hear They run off me like water Even though I know you're sincere No erasing all that came before That's why in my head you're... Already gone Already gone

Who's making all these lists Please can you tell them to give me a miss One by one you've got marching orders I'm feeling low, betrayed and nauseous You will never get away with this I'm loosing my identity It's gone, gone, gone... I wear the crown of a man beaten down All my hats will mask the fact that I need you around It's cruel, there's no stopping my D.N.A I seem to be loosing more each day One by one there are no second chances Are you leaving today? can you hold your horses Rest assured I will owe you one I'm loosing my identity It's gone, gone, gone... I wear the crown of a man beaten down All my hats will mask the fact that I need you around
