it's not like a gift i had to disguise a pleasant exchange or a carnival ride the pressure beneath you, in check with a sigh it's not like i hurt you, they're only lies only lies, only lies only lies see how we run to somewhere else see how we run to somewhere else to someone else a seed in a vacuum, a doll full of rice - it's not like i left you only lies only lies, only lies only lies it's not like i left you only lies

what would you do without the fence around the GTO? it's low down, way too low - it makes no sense to park there what would you do without the tube of glue and sticks of wax behind your baby's back to hold her up if she falls down? what would you do if skies were blue or grey, or whatever? if it was up to you... what would you do? what would you do without the gas piped up into your head the pilot light's gone dead - and now your head is hazardous what would you do if skies were blue or grey, or whatever? something to prove you're coming to? and if you could move or tie you shoe - now and forever - if it was up to you... (SOLO) what would you do if skies were blue or grey, or whatever? something to prove you're coming to? and if you could move or tie you shoe - now and forever - if it was up to you... what would you do?

'Cos you don't have to walk back to Your deep shame or your steamboat lease (You) Got a husband in Tennesse Hanging out with the Ku Klux Klan He's drinking hot blood and clear champagne Thininking 'bout his career-o He charmed the pants off the three blind mice He told a joke and it sounded nice But when you walk you don't really move 'Cos you're telekinetic Could this ever resemble truth? Assembled on a track We're all tired from waiting For you to be a hero When you walk you don't really move It all adds to zero

(CHORUS) The ship is sinking but it's alright to check it over, check it over, Check it over now It's been a long night And now it's over Or is it over? Check it over now (V1) Back in cheap seats You feel a shockwave Spilling your cheap drinks On your knees And up in first class Through all the white teeth A gentle whisper, then a scream - (CHORUS) (V2) It's just a test tone In all the best homes They're dropping white phones On their plates But when the clock stops They want to talk shop And now the doors locked Anyway, the ship is sinking but it's alright... (CHORUS OUT)

Underwater in submarines Navigating these sleepy machines On the Sky Saw, or on a date Saving ladies from their final fate And suddenly it's all over Ooh when the cat gets out Put one on every corner A Legionnaire in doubt Moving faster on rice paper trains Tuning scanners with Electro Brains And suddenly it's all over Ooh when the cat gets out There's one on every corner A Legionnaire in doubt And suddenly it's all over Ooh when the cat gets out There's one on every corner A Legionnaire in doubt And suddenly it's all over And when the cat gets out There's one on every corner A Legionnaire in doubt, A Legionnaire in doubt

what do you see when you see what seems to be right through me why do you act so suprised to find my hands over my eyes maybe there's a reason that we are running the red lights is it because we just can't see them? or have we lost our minds? baby we're so tragic i'm lost inside this static still your name has got a real nice sound to it now that i am blind now that i am blind (4x) now that i am blind (4x) now that i am blind (3x)

You might be paranoid, you might be rich You might have a hidden camera in your shoe - When you come around, sit me down and tell me life's a bitch - 'cos you know there's always someone after you It might be fire or it might be smoke either way it's such a complicated view - Is this the way the best line of your story always goes? When you know there's always someone after you You come around, that freaky sound of ropes breakin' and satellites crashin' on down And all the spys with radar ties are hiding outside You know who you can trust And you know who's tellin' lies You know that if it's false it must be true You notice that I've got a funny gleam between my eyes And you know there's always someone after you yeah, you know there's always someone after you You come around, that freaky sound of ropes breakin' and satellites crashin' on down And all the spys with radar ties are hiding outside You might be paranoid, you might be rich You might have a hidden camera in your shoe - When you come around, sit me down and tell me life's a bitch - 'cos you know there's always someone after you yeah, you know there's always someone after you

Scott, if I ever see you I am gonna kill you, and then I will get sent back to jail, the Pope will send the bail in tens, and twenties, 'cos his god is funny, spent all my fucking money and I still feel lost 'Cos people like the same things that you do People like the same things that you do Scott, why'd you have to do it? Why couldn't she see through it, like gauze? You tore through her bolted soul, you made it past the goal, but I paid the cost 'Cos people like the same things that you do People like the same things that you do But I don't like the same things that you do

remember a golden day baby far away that you left behind way back when your heart was black from the love you packed as you left your mind 'scuse me but the casualties of the love you seek are a little high I know I'm a lucky boy but I can't enjoy til I know you're mine oh yeah this time make your mind this time bells ring, children sing but no one brings a shred of sense get straight cause it's getting late and I just can't wait to get off the fence oh yeah this time make your mind this time if you want to see me blow away that's an easy thing all you have to do is say the word and I'll be going remember a golden day baby far away that you left behind way back when your heart was black from the love you packed as you left your mind oh yeah this time make your mind make your mind this time

Happy new year It's a cold one Won't you let go Of the old one It's justified It's a brand new year Get your make-up Matching case Tell you something There's no trace Of that other year It's just a memory And the world is waiting for a reason Tell them something blame it on the season Maybe then we can slip away Happy new year It's a cold one Won't you let go Of the old one It's justified It's a brand new year It's a brand new year It's a brand new year
