I want to know fun and feeling before I die I don't want to spend time with people who don't like me I'd rather walk on by and let them get on get on get on with what they're doing just let them get on get on get on with what they're doing They'll want it more They'll need it less I want to be good and gracious with my life I don't want to see the strangers who surround me and there's a reason why they just go on and on and on with what they're doing they just go on and on and on with what they're doing They'll want it more They'll need it less They just go on and on and on and on They just go on and on and on with what they're doing I want it more I need it less I want it more I need it less I want fun and feeling let them get on get on get on get on I want good and gracious let them get on get on get on get on

Perish 05:16
There's a ghost in my house I realise it's you you I see through you were right we don't know each other we're staying together for the sake of our memories that we love and cherish we can't let them down Surely our souls will perish surely our souls will perish There's a ghost in my heart I'm not willing to free it symbolises me but I'm not ready I'm scared of the bugs a millionth of the size of me we're staying together for the sake of our memories that we love and cherish we can't let them down Surely our souls will perish surely surely surely we're staying together for the sake of our memories that we love and cherish we can't let them down I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared I'm scared

Hung Up 05:55
Silence waits till it no longer knows right from wrong it's reaching out it's reaching out it's reaching out bursting through it is softly spoken it's staying young staying young staying young before we get to love before we get to romance before we've had enough just give it one more chance give it one more chance I'm hung up on romance I'm hung up on romance Grieve in love before it's over dead by design it's reaching out it's reaching out it's reaching out before we get to love before we get to romance before we've had enough just give it one more chance give it one more chance hung up on romance hung up on romance Hey you know I don't do so well I'd love to know I'd love to know I'd love to know I'd love to know Cos I'm hung up hung up hung up hung up can't you tell I'd love to know I'd love to know I'd love to know I'd love to know Hey you know I don't do so bad I'd love to know I'd love to know I'd love to know I'd love to know before we get to love before we get to romance before we've had enough Just give it one more chance hung up on romance hung up on romance

Chainmail 05:11
I watch your back as you walk without care See the daggers in a million stares More fool me and my big mouth Cos I have much less to shout about I sit and wait while the night closes in Sitting pretty not in focus Hiding edges as my needs must Watching waiting for a detail System error sent by chain mail I thought I saw you curl your lip at me Not something you forget you've seen Is that what this is all about Well go ahead and have your doubts I sit and wait for my ship to come in Sitting pretty not in focus Hiding edges as my needs must Watching waiting for a detail System error sent by chain mail

We're in over our heads It's the end of a sick affair It's been a long time coming Too long for me Cos the anger is in my mouth Bile is on the tip of my tongue Ready to destroy All in it's path All in it's way because it can It's all out of control It's all from the soul Fly with the high Go with the low We've only ourselves to blame For the mess of our foolish game We could make it laughing But it's not meant to be Cos the fire is in my heart And careering through my veins Wanting to get out Away from you Away from this because it can It's all out of control It's all from the soul Fly with the high Go with the low.

My tiled white floor Seems so soothing It's so inviting So don't ask questions Cos my nose is bleeding But all's forgiven It's so inviting And it don't ask questions How have I been living? You already know You've seen it all before You sat and watched me grow Everyone lies around you From deep inside Nothing seems to undermine you No need to hide You're only what you know Only what you know Only what you know My stained white dress Tells a story It flows with humour And laughs at reason That's how I've been living But you already know You've seen it all before Or so you tell me so Everyone lies around you From deep inside Nothing seems to undermine you No need to hide You're only what you know Only what you know Only what you know Now we've come to the end I never thought we'd get this far It's not so clever for someone like you You could do better Everyone lies around you From deep inside Nothing seems to undermine you No need to hide You're only what you know Only what you know Only what you know.

Polaroid 04:00
You're too good for me I don't feel worthy I've told you this before You've always known the score Cos only you can give me The reassurance that I need I've told myself Though it don't seem to help Told myself Though it don't seem to help Cos only you can show me Can you see me? For the shadow that I am Do you believe me? When I'm as shallow as I am I'm waiting patiently For the Polaroid to take hold Then all my secrets They will unfold I only wanted someone To lift me from despair When I turn a corner I'd like you to be waiting there Cos only you can teach me The resources that I need I hold myself Though it don't seem to help Hold myself Though it don't seem to help Cos only you can show me Can you see me? For the shadow that I am Do you believe me? When I'm as shallow as I am I'm waiting patiently For the Polaroid to take hold Then all my secrets They will unfold

Hear my heart how it's been beating It's taken steps it can never retreat in Safe and warm Now it has meaning You can't ever go back You can't ever go back You can't beat on the door You can't ever go back You can't care anymore You can't care anymore You know what it's for You can't care anymore Watch my tongue and it's cruel deleting It's eaten words that it used to scream in You can't ever go back You can't ever go back You can't beat on the door You can't ever go back It's not the same anymore It's not the same anymore You know what's for You can't care anymore See my heart how it's been bleeding Should have seen it coming Should have done something Should have seen it coming
