Beds

The room's spinning again
She can't seem to remember getting into this mess
Don't try and pick her face up off the floor

And all the while she waits for sleep
That never comes, she'll twist her feet
They tangle in the crumpled sheets
She's always in

He's tired of borrowed beds and feeling nothing
As living takes its toll upon his teeth
His kisses don't seem hungry any more

And all the while he waits for sleep
That never comes, he'll twist his feet
They tangle in the crumpled sheets

He stumbles in all shining eyed with laughter
She's never been that steady on her feet
They fall together blindly to the floor

And all the while he softly sleeps
She lies awake and listens to him breathing
Entangled in the crumpled sheets
They're always in

And all the while he softly sleeps
She lies awake and listens to him breathing
Entangled in the crumpled sheets

Cellophane

She came packaged and brightly wrapped in cellophane
With a warning, no one reads anyway
Learning quickly, she knew all the games other people played
It's been a while now, chasing things that slip away
She would fix you with crystal eyes, strange looks but thinly disguised
Stuff in her head???
Empty feelings start to creep in
Walking late at night alone again
She could fix you with crystal eyes, strange looks but thinly disguised
Making strangers on the floor again
Shes wearing someone elses clothes again
And drinking far too much to make sense
Waiting for things to happen
She would fix you with crystal eyes, strange looks but thinly disguised
Stuff in her head???
It's over your head
It's over your head

Dangerous shoes

I think that you should know
What's over your face
And three weeks in a row is too much
Why come to this place?

Maybe it's time to go
I'm looking afright
And it's tiring putting a show on every night
Why should it be turning me off
It's insane that it's making me strong

I won't go out tonight
Can't be bothered
To stumble around in my dangerous shoes
I won't go out tonight
Can't be bothered
To stumble in dangerous shoes
Dangerous shoes

I think that you should know
Maybe it's time to go
Why should it be turning me off
It's insane that it's make me strong

I won't go out tonight
Can't be bothered
To stumble around in my dangerous shoes
I won't go out tonight
Can't be bothered
To stumble in dangerous shoes
Dangerous shoes

I think that you should know
What's over your face
And three weeks in a row is too much
Why come to this place

Maybe it's time to go
I'm looking afright
And it's tiring putting a show on every night
Why should it be turning me off
It's insane that it's turning me on

I won't go out tonight
Can't be bothered
To stumble around in my dangerous shoes

I won't go out tonight
Can't be bothered
To stumble in dangerous shoes
Dangerous shoes

I won't go out tonight
Can't be bothered to
I won't go out tonight
I'll be avoiding you
I won't go out tonight
Can't be bothered
To stumble around in my dangerous shoes

Dissent

You sat down
Staggered out
You're acting strange
And I feel tense
As I can sense
That you're insane

Your eyes on fire
Burning bright
Your lips are wet
I thought you could have
Pulled a gun
You took out your cigarette

And it looked to me
Like you've been going down too long
It looked to me
Like you've been on the ground too long

Then later on
I'm going home
I think I see you everywhere
Down in the station
Round a corner
In the darkness
You wait to catch me unaware
Will it be you
Walking me home

And I feel strange
Like I've been in this town too long
You make me strange
Since I've been hanging round too long

You sat down
Staggered out
You're acting strange
And I feel tense
As I can sense
That you're insane

I look for you
Walking me home
It's funny how
Since I've been hanging round too long
I've been in this town too long

Ether

I painted it blue
It reminds me of you
Blue like the skies that I saw in your eyes
But I pictured them red as you dwelled in my head
As you

I look over my shoulder
Look back into your eyes
And drifting away I've got nothing to say
My hands are tied
My hands are tied
They're tied

Remember the first flash of anger
I watched as they clouded to grey
As I saw you grow cold
Found my sap pour away
And I swallowed my pride
Swallowed my pride
Swallowed my pride
Stemmed the anger inside
When it died

I stand in the shadows
Look up at the sky
Not to remember
The passing of time
Surrounded by ether
I almost forget that you

I look over my shoulder
Look back into your eyes
And drifting away I've got nothing to say
My hands were tied
My hands were tied

Flawed

Why is it my mind won't behave
Today when I'm alright Four nights I slept
I held you up to the light
To find things you hide

Why is it that I end up here
Again looking downwards
You claim to understand
Don't hold me up to the light

There's things I need to
Hide away from myself
Too much time makes look inwards
Don't stay in my head
Or prey on my mind
Visit my eyes
You're not invited to stay

There's things my I hide away from myself
Too much time makes look inwards
Don't stay in my head
Or prey on my mind
Visit my eyes
You're not invited to stay

Why is it that I end up here
Again looking downwards

Marquis

He wakes up
Sha - sha - shaking
With half a tooth missing
Lifts his head feels the aftermath kick in
Last night he was shining
And so entertaining
Today he is tired and wasted and grey

And each time he says he won't do it again

His head is a rhythm
And muscles start twitching
As he lights up a cigarette
Which does him no favours
Today like the others
He'll spend under the covers
And wait for the night to get up there again

And each time he says he won't do it again
But tonight you know that he'll do it again

And each time he says he won't do it again
But tonight you know that he'll do it again

And each time he says he won't do it again
But tonight you know that he'll do it again

On A Tuesday

I got a message says that you wanna know me
That's how I know today it must be a friday
It's been a while since we were last wasted
Funny how you never call me on tuesday

I wouldn't like to say that you're not a good friend
But seems you're only around when it's snowing
Today's a grey day but I know that you won't know
I've heard you're far too busy powdering your nose

I'd like to know you
But when I see you, you act like
I'd like to know you
But when I see you, you always feel like God

Don't understand why I feel nervous around you
I can't explain it must be something that you do
Anyway you're a million miles from me
I think I live in a different world from you

I'd like to know you
But when I see you, you act like
I'd like to know you
But when I see you, you always feel like God

I got a message says that you wanna know me
That's how I know today it must be a friday
It's been a while since we were last wasted
Funny how you never call me on tuesday

I'd like to know you
But when I see you, you act like
I'd like to know you
But when I see you, you always feel like God.

Ray Liotta

Running to the station
And you're feeling just like Ray Liotta
Eyes are blacker than your shades
You're wearing pretty thin

Tearing through the crowd
'Cause you won't wait
And you can't face a weekend
Staring at the ceiling
The walls are closing in

Life's too slow
So you run away
And you know
Life's too slow

Turn into the market
And you catch him on the stairs
Man, you kept me waiting
And it's giving me the fear
He takes you 'round the corner
And he passes you the gear
You bitch about the money
He says that's the cost of living

And life's too slow
I'll have you run away
And you know
You can run away

Back into the open
And you're feeling kind of nervous
Wanna get there quick
So get a cab
Rushing for the door
It seems you're never gonna get there
Now you're sitting again without your friend

You're looking in the mirror but it's not at your reflection
And a hit between the eyes starts your weekend
You're looking in the mirror but it's not at your reflection
And a hit between the eyes starts your weekend

Restriction

Why can't you see those hands are cold are grey
When her imperfections hide away
And in the half-light you can
Barely see that face
Maybe it's better that way

As you fall into waiting arms
That loosen their embrace
Finding comfort in restriction
Eternally replace

Why don't you know what's going on here
The same things happen every few years

As you fall into waiting arms
That loosen their embrace
Finding comfort in restriction
Eternally replace

Why can't you see those hands are cold and grey
Their imperfections hide away
At times you realize you
Barely knew that name
Maybe it's better that way

As you fall into waiting arms
That loosen their embrace
Finding comfort in restriction
Eternally replace

She's Sick

She says
Why don't you let me take you home
He's bored
And doesn't want to sleep alone
She'd like another drink
And he's blinded by her clothes

They sit
In darkened corners everywhere
She's sick
He seems completely unaware
He's spent too long
Going nowhere

He waits round for things to try
She knows ways of killing time

He flies
He says his feet don't touch the ground
She's tired
But she forgets when he's around
It's weird
The way they always dress the same
But he lies
Always denying it again
They spent too long
Going nowhere

He waits round for things to try
She knows ways of killing time

He waits round for things to try
She knows ways of killing time

Shine Brightly

There's a girl who laughs all day
She whiles the night away with strangers
This girl's got everything
Which she gives away and wonders where it's gone
Why she feels wrong

And how much longer, she says
Will I feel this way
Shine brightly but fade
Look around you
Take care
Look around you
Be aware

There's a girl stays out all night
Chasing dreams, but she comes home wild
And how much longer, she says
Will I feel this way
Shine brightly but fade
Look around you
Take care
Look around you
Be aware

Smear

There's something moving under your skin
I saw it creeping in there
It eats you slowly from within
I watch you growing thinner

Your blood is thick and sticky red
All over those fingers
They've warned you as it drains away
But you don't listen

Intent on living a lie
Shame you
There must be vaseline on your lens
Do you see everything in freeze frame?

It leaves a black and dirty trail
You won't recover
And bleeds you dry then moves away
To find another

With teeth and talons in your neck
You look for bidding
And as it takes all it can get
You say that's giving

Intent on living a lie
Shame you
There must be vaseline on your lens
Do you see everything in freeze frame?

There must be vaseline on your lens
Do you see everything in freeze frame?

There's something moving under your skin
I saw it creeping in there
It eats you slowly from within
I watch you growing thinner

Your blood is thick and sticky red
All over those fingers
They've warned you as it drains away
But you don't listen

Intent on living a lie
Shame you
There must be vaseline on your lens
Do you see everything in freeze frame?

There must be vaseline on your lens
Do you see everything in freeze frame?

Stay Awhile

Stay awhile if you want
Don't wanna see you go
We can sit here not moving
Hardly talking
Not alone

If you want to pretend
Everything is alright
Then stay another day
And I'll you watch you play
Not alone

But if you wanna know
Which way to go,
Ask somebody else
And if you're wondering
What's going on
Remember that we're not alone

For a while
So for another day
I'll sit and watch you play
Not alone

Staring up at the ceiling
I can hardly remember
And I'm floating freely above
Just for tonight
It's alright

But if you wanna know
Which way to go,
Ask somebody else
And if you're wondering
What's going on
Remember that we're not alone

If you wanna know
Which way to go,
Ask somebody else
And if you're wondering
What's going on

Don't hold me down
When I want to go high
Let me sit and just floating
Hardly breathing
Not alone

Swim

She said, come swim with me
They say, still waters run deep
Today finds me asleep
I pray, bring me peace

She laid soft by my side
Afraid, closed my eyes
It's cold outside
In here, together we'll hide

This Game

Blinded, I walk into your light
Look around corners
Watching in silence

As you catch your reflection
Your lips curl with mine
Missing, I forgot you had nothing to lose
In spite of the wrong night
It's cold in my room

As you catch your reflection
Your lips curl with mine
As you give into temptation
You sweetly lie
Distorted, you're ???
And I'm spiralling in it with you

As you caught your reflection
Your lips curled with mine
As you give into temptation
You sweetly lied

And I awake, still feels the same
But I have awoken
Let's not play this game anymore

Tired

I'm so tired, down?
But my head won't let me sleep
Rise and fall, dead?
Feeling cold, now?
Haven't you noticed it's been a while
And I don't even know you, dead?
Drifting away
Drifting away
Feeling lonely, dead?
It gets stronger when you're near
Smiling softly, dead?
Don't think you're with me yet
Haven't you noticed, you never smile
And I don't even know you, down??

Twisted

I should warn you, keep away
I'm seeing things in a twisted way,
Anyway,
And tonight,
I'll be a nightmare.

I see your face in a different light
Tonight

Laughter passes me by
Talk goes over my head
Think I should we avoid us
Why don't you avoid me,
Anyway

I don't want to know the time
Things that excite me
Don't seem such fun today

Laughter passes me by
Talk goes over my head
Think I should we avoid us
Why don't you avoid me,
Anyway

I'm seeing things in a twisted way

Unresolved

Why talk for hours
I'd rather everything remained unsaid
And I see shadows
So I hide away
What are you thinking now,
I wonder
As you stand forlorn
Against the wall,
I wonder

I'm tired of saying I don't know
I tired of thinking too much
Don't ask me questions any more
I don't see things like you do
Like you do

They talk for days
I'm glad I wear my name around my neck
To save confusion
Why must we argue in such
Convoluted ways
'Cause you do

I'm tired of saying I don't know
I tired of thinking too much
Don't ask me questions any more
I don't see things

I'm tired of saying I don't know
I tired of thinking too much
Don't ask me questions any more
I don't see things
Like you do, like you do
Like you do.

Ways To Escape

Enter the room softly with hidden wings
Saying you talk strange things I don't understand
Maybe you'll find time someday to answer me then

I saw those eyes
Too delicate
Just look away
Ways to escape are never clear
I've been holding my breath
For a week and it's getting me down
Sometimes I find I need a
High that takes me anywhere but here

Just take a blind leap
Of faith in the dark
Why do you measure every guess?

Seems I've been holding my breath
For a week and it's getting me down
Sometimes I find I need a
High that takes me anywhere but here

Holding my breath
For a week and it's getting me down
Sometimes I find I need a
High that takes me anywhere but here.
