Run, run away. It’s easier than doing something. I’ll take the blame, it’s easier than doing something. We’re burning everything for the thrill of it. Don’t try to stop me, don’t try to stop me. Just take your medicine, you won’t feel anything. Don’t try to stop me. Everything is ordinary now. I’ll spill my guts but I don’t wanna ruin this new carpet. Hey whats the rush? Don’t leave now we’re getting started. We’re burning everything for the thrill of it. Don’t try to stop me, don’t try to stop me. Just take your medicine, you won’t feel anything. Don’t try to stop me. Everything is ordinary now. Put on your plastic smile. Why don’t we hide in the grey for a while? Are we just comfortably numb? Look what you could’ve been, what you could’ve become. We’re burning everything for the thrill of it. Don’t try to stop me, don’t try to stop me. Just take your medicine, you won’t feel anything. Don’t try to stop me. Everything is ordinary now.

I’m depressed not taking my meds. I’ve grown numb from flashing lights. They said I should keep my mouth shut. I’ve been slowly hypnotised. I am watched everywhere that I go. I’m pretty anxious & I know that it shows. The tv said I should get some help. I wanna look different like everyone else. I swear to god I wouldn’t do it. But I’m doing my best just to get through it. Keep chewing gotta swallow some more. We smoked all the air til we burned through the floor. The man on the moon’s got a lot to tell you. Everything’s replaceable. I get greedy cause it’s what I do. I usually only think about myself. The tv said that I’m poor & ugly. I wanna look different like everyone else. I swear to god I wouldn’t do it. But I’m doing my best just to get through it. You don’t wanna hear about my problems. It’s all my fault cause I went & got born. Set it off. I swear to god I wouldn’t do it. But I’m doing my best just to get through it.

Hey you. You’re a star. You’re the one. Thought I had a point to make. But I don’t remember. Plasticine dreams, cigarettes & beauty queens. Goodbye to your privacy. I don’t think you need it. Not where you’ve been. I kinda like the way you’re talking to me right now. Hey you. You’re a star. You’re the one. Thought I had a point to make. But I don’t remember. I crashed my car at the end of the boulevard, I wasn’t even driving far. I just thought I’d like it & I guess that I did. I kinda like the way you’re talking to me right now. If I could understand the words you say somehow. Hey you. You’re a star. You’re the one. Thought I had a point to make. But I don’t remember. Fake plastic trees. Everything is what it seems. Forget about the things you’ve seen, Everything is perfect. You got all that you need. Hey you. You’re a star. You’re the one. Thought I had a point to make. But I don’t remember.

I’m an oil stain on the world. I’ve given up the ghost.  I’m lazy & I’m selfish & I’ve got no self control. I’m becoming an idiot. Never really fitted in. I’ve spilt my milk & I want more but I just quit drinking. Blowing smoke to fill the void.  Telling tales to pass the time.  I want something that I can’t have But if I take it then it’s mine I’m gonna take over the world & do anything I want If I ever make it out of here  Because this mirror keeps me warm You had to crash the party. You had to kill my joy. So tell me you love me. Tell me I’m everything you want.  Tell me you need me.  Give me everything you’ve got.  So give it all.  I’m desperate to be heard but I don’t have much to say. I forgot the words, but I’ll scream them anyway. Paper genius, plastic pain. Broken windows, acid rain. Let’s make small talk, let’s make change. As long as you love me, as long as you paid. So tell me you love me. Tell me I’m everything you want.  Tell me you need me.  Give me everything you’ve got.  So give it all.

Father I think I’m different. I don’t like playing with the other boys. Father I’m different. I like the way the flowers smell. On a high ledge I want to cry but I don’t know how. My lips are chapped but my hands are soft. Circles don’t fit into squares. On a high ledge (Man up man)

Only1 03:50
Finding it so hard just to get out of bed. I just can’t wake up & I wish I was dead. Yeah I’m just drifting but the world doesn’t care. Just tryna pay the rent but life aint that fair. Has the world gone mad today or is it only me? Why do bad things only seem to happen to me? I wanna be the only one. I wanna be the only one. Why am I such a drag I’m so unfriendly. I wish that everything could be about me. There’s panic in the air there’s kids in the street. Don’t think you know a single thing about me. Has the world gone mad today or is it only me? Why do bad things only seem to happen to me? I wanna be the only one. I wanna be the only one. You’re reprehensible it’s over your head. Why don’t you watch the pretty colours instead. I wouldn’t lie to you there’s too much at stake. Got people killing people for the messes I make. I wanna be the only one. I wanna be the only one.

I’m getting bored of waking up alone. You come home drunk & you smashed your phone. Eyes so red what have you done? But it’s no surprise, it’s no surprise at all. What would you say? What would you do to me If I opened my mouth? What would you say? What would you do to me? I’m getting tired of the same old excuse. “It’s been a long week & I’m tryna let loose” It’s us & them, it’s up to you choose. But it’s no surprise it’s no surprise at all. What would you say? What would you do to me? If I opened my mouth? What would you say? What would you do to me? This aint love, this is a class war. What would you say? What would you do to me? If I opened my mouth? What would you say? What would you do to me?

Playing God 04:04
I’ll smoke them out, I’ll send them running. I’ll make my name, I’ll become something. Because it’s up to me, it’s up to me to do the dirty work. Call off the dogs I can see through the fog & I’ll kill cause I want to. Call off the dogs or I’ll keep playing god & I’ll kill cause I want to. I’ll smoke them out, I’ll make them afraid of me. I won’t hold back, cause the whole worlds gonna see. Because it’s up to me, it’s up to me to do the dirty work. Call off the dogs I can see through the fog & I’ll kill cause I want to. Call off the dogs or I’ll keep playing god & I’ll kill cause I want to.

Flesh & sinew, you’re poetry & soil. Leave nothing on the bone. Your apple never spoils. Time’s infinite & so is my kiss. You’re swimming in the stars. You’re swimming in the bliss. I gotta get out of bed because I’m floating away. Just like a hole in the head, I know I’m falling down. Don’t wanna hit the ground. I’m in love with a drug & it loves me too. I don’t need no one else cause I’ve got what I want right here next to you. Cause we do what we want when we’re all brand new. We’re the brand new kids and you won’t see us cause we look like you. I’ll swallow you, the roses on your lips. The music on your tongue. The feeling of your skin. So float me down the river in a tube. It’s only me & you. & I’m a lead balloon. I’m in love with a drug & it loves me too. I don’t need no one else cause I’ve got what I want right here next to you. Cause we do what we want when we’re all brand new. We’re the brand new kids and you won’t see us cause we look like you. You’re an effigy, you’re a better me. I’m addicted to you. You’re my ecstasy. Make my colours bleed. I’m addicted to you. I’m in love with a drug & it loves me too. I don’t need no one else cause I’ve got what I want right here next to you. Cause we do what we want when we’re all brand new. We’re the brand new kids and you won’t see us cause we look like you.

Ratking 03:25
Slam that door one more time I swear to god. If you want to change the world you’re doing it wrong. You always knew just how to get under my skin. It’s not that I don’t understand, I just don’t fit in. Don’t call me a freak, I’m just not feeling this. I don’t care what you think, keep it to yourself. Tell me what I want to hear just like everyone else. You always knew just how to get under my skin. It’s not that I don’t understand, I just don’t fit in. Don’t call me a freak, I’m just not feeling this. I promise you you’ll be fine, baby give it some time. This could all be a simulation still. I’m still tryna be clean, if you know what I mean. Got to take it one day at a time. Don’t call me a freak I’m just not feeling this. (So don’t call me a freak, I’ll scream it loud on my feet. Gotta take it one day at a time).

I saw you crying on the train today. I didn’t know what to do I didn’t know what to say. Just keep it in, just keep it safe. Don’t tell them how you’re feeling, they’ll look the other way. Now I’m stuck in the mud & I don’t know what to do. I’ve got that sinking feeling, I’m calling out to you. & I’m getting older & I know that you are too. But we could live forever, just show me what to do. I miss my mother on the train today. I wish that I could call her & make it go away. Now I’m twenty something & it’s not okay. Be a brave soldier & find your own way. Now I’m stuck in the mud & I don’t know what to do. I’ve got that sinking feeling, I’m calling out to you. & I’m getting older & I know that you are too. But we could live forever, just show me what to do. You saw me crying on the train today. You didn’t know what to do, you didn’t know what to say. Don’t kill my fire. Don’t kill my grace. Just tell me everything is gonna be okay. I’m lost in the dark. I can’t find the way. Now I’m stuck in the mud & I don’t know what to do. I’ve got that sinking feeling, I’m calling out to you. & I’m getting older & I know that you are too. But we could live forever, just show me what to do.

I’m a spectre in your dreams. I’m drowning in your sleep. I’m divided. I don’t know who I’m supposed to be. I’m different when I’m me. I just can’t fight it. I’m gonna sink through the floorboards & into your head. Cause I am liquid. Because I’m floating out to sea. I’m asleep, & I’m liquid. I’m drifting in a dream, just for me. & I’m liquid. I’m melting down into your mold. I’m doing what I’m told. Cause I am liquid. I’ll paint a picture just for you. Cause that’s what people do. I’m so conflicted. I’m gonna sink through the floorboard & onto your lips. Cause I am liquid. Because I’m floating out to sea. I’m asleep, & I’m liquid. I’m drifting in a dream, just for me. & I’m liquid. What can I say, I’m floating away. I’m thinking of changing my name. But I’m different when I’m with you. I thought I was done. I’ve only begun to get to the person I was. I’m going I’m going i’m going I’m going I’m gone. Because I’m floating out to sea. I’m asleep, & I’m liquid. I’m drifting in a dream, just for me. & I’m liquid.

Monolith 05:23
Lock the door & hit the gas. Lock the door & hit the gas. Lock the door & hit the gas. Lock the door & hit the gas. I can’t scratch the itch. Can’t crawl out of the crater. I can’t quench the thirst. Cut myself on the paper. & I’m barely getting by. This hole keeps getting deeper & deeper & deeper. Hey you, fuck you too. I’ll do what I want when I want to. You’ve already got it all. How could you ever need some more? Hey you, fuck you too. I’ll do what I want when I want to. Lock the door & hit the gas. Lock the door & hit the gas. Lock the door & hit the gas. Lock the door & hit the gas. I’m frozen in the headlights & I don’t know what to say. My thoughts are turning empty. My palette’s turning grey. & I just need to whisper. But maybe I’m too late. I don’t know what to say. Hey you, fuck you too. I’ll do what I want when I want to. You’ve already got it all. How could you ever need some more? Hey you, fuck you too. I’ll do what I want when I want to. You’ve already got it all. How could you ever need some more? Lock the door & hit the gas. Lock the door & hit the gas. Lock the door & hit the gas. Lock the door & hit the gas. Well they all crawl out of the woodwork. They crawl out to feast on your fun. They’re oh so righteous & oh so smart. The chaos has barely begun. Hey you, fuck you too. I’ll do what I want when I want to. You’ve already got it all. How could you ever need some more? Hey you, fuck you too. I’ll do what I want when I want to. You’ve already got it all. How could you ever need some more?
