In 1993 Madan and Johansson first met in a pub, with Sonya expressing her desire to sing in a band "I used to sing a lot as a child. I suppose I had a secret desire to sing",[2] They soon teamed up with bass guitarist Alex Keyser and drummer Andy Henderson, who had previously played with PJ Harvey's band. Guitarist Debbie Smith, formerly of Curve, came on board in 1994.[1] According to the Epic Records' website, the group came up with the name Echobelly from the notion of "being hungry for something". With Madan and Johansson serving as songwriters, they recorded their debut EP, Bellyache, on the independent Pandemonium label in late 1993.[1] The favourable response to Bellyache helped Echobelly secure a recording contract with Rhythm King, which was then part of Epic. Once on board the label, the group released the "I Can't Imagine the World Without Me" single in June 1994.[1] The group then recorded the album Everyone's Got One, which included the single "Insomniac" and reached number eight on the UK Albums Chart.[1] As their music received more airplay, Echobelly won admiration from other artists as well. Madonna expressed interest in putting them on her Maverick label, and R.E.M. requested the group as the opening act for their upcoming tour. The band returned to the studio in 1995 to create their next album, On, produced by Sean Slade and Paul Kolderie, who had also produced Hole and Radiohead. Madan's lyrics often ventured into the seamy side of life, such as the milieu of prostitution and homelessness addressed in the song "King of the Kerb". "I wanted to challenge myself as a lyricist on a different level on this album," Madan said in Rolling Stone. "I want people to tell me what they thought the lyrics are about. I'm not a politician. I'm not interested in changing everybody around me. I'm interested in myself." While many of the songs lamented the state of things, others on the On album celebrated the endless possibilities of the human spirit. In "Great Things", Madan sang "I want to do great things/I don't want to compromise/I want to know what love is/I want to know everything."[3] The album's mostly optimistic feel provides an intriguing contrast with its serious subject matter. As Pareles wrote, "Both music and lyrics examine the tension between order and liberty". Listeners in the UK responded favourably to the album, driving three singles from the release into the Top 30 of the UK Singles Chart.[1] Sales of the album rose to over 150,000 in the UK, nearly double that of Everyone's Got One. Health and legal problems interrupted the success of Echobelly in 1995 and 1996. Madan had a serious thyroid problem during her world tour that was potentially life-threatening, but was later cured. Bass guitarist James Harris joined after Keyser defected because of personal and artistic differences. The group also had disagreements with Rhythm King after the label moved to Arista. The band chose to stay with Epic. In 1996 Madan also ventured away from the group when she sang on a recording of the club band, Lithium. Smith left the band before the release of Lustra, which was issued in November 1997. A single from the album, "The World is Flat", was released in August of that year.[1] A four-year hiatus was brought to an end in 2001 when the band returned with the Digit EP and their fourth album, People Are Expensive, which were released on their own Fry Up label. Two further singles, "Tell Me Why" and "Kali Yuga" (a remixed version of the album track) followed. In 2004 Echobelly released a fifth album - again through their own Fry Up label, Gravity Pulls.

Everyone's got one

Today tomorrow sometimes never
 
Today I can't seem to find what i'm searching for,
Oh well maybe tommorrow,
I wait, devious thoughts, but no inspiration at all,
I have shut down.

Generations, lost in the haze of these apathy days,
When everyone falls,
Segregation someone to blame but the problems remain,
When everyone falls.

Somewhere looking for shelter i still can't find myself,
I am alone,
Aware is it my colour or culture who can tell,
Should we be hated for ourselves,
Where should we go.

Generations lost in the haze of these apathy days,
When everyone falls,
Segregation someone to blame, but the problems remain,
When everyone falls.

Are you with me sometime or never,
Are you with me sometime or never,
Or never, never, never,
Don't let me down.

Generations, lost in the haze of these apathy days,
When everyone falls,
Segregation, someone to blame, but the problems remain,
When everyone falls,
Generations, lost in the haze of these apathy days,
When everyone falls.

Today tommorrow sometimes never,
Today tommorrow sometimes never.

Today tommorrow sometimes never,
Today tommorrow sometimes never,
Today tommorrow sometimes never.

Father ruler king computer 

Is it wrong to be alone,
An adventure of my own,
A celebration of myself and me,
Discovering what i can be,
The half a couple fantasy.

Oh luck is on my side,
I celebrate my life,
Don't try to come,
Don't pin me down with vows and flowers.

I was brought up, I've been told,
That a husband is the goal,
What connotations in these loaded words,
A spinster and a batchelor,
I am whole all by myself,
I don't need nobody else.

Oh luck is on my side,
I celebrate my life,
Don't try to come,
Don't pin me down with vows and flowers.

Oh luck is on my side,
I celebrate my life,
Don't try to come,
Don't pin me down with vows and flowers.

Hello destiny is this what you want from me,
Don't anybody try to stop me.

Oh luck is on my side,
I celebrate my life,
Don't try to come,
Don't pin me down with vows and flowers.

Oh luck is on my side,
I celebrate my life,
Don't try to come,
Don't pin me down,
Don't pin me down.

Give her a gun 

Let the fear dislocate,
Lest we frown upon the female agressor,
Makes no sense, goes against the gender,
Let her anger curse the years of oppression,
Blame the mother, sell the sister,
Before she blows you away.

Won't someone give her a gun,won't someone,
Won't someone give her a gun, won't someone.

In a lifetime full of changes,
A woman's group is still a second-class convention,
Look around who has the power,
Am I a big mouth with a fix of paranoia,
On your side, on your side,
Not here for the ride.

Won't someone give her a gun,won't someone,
Won't someone give her a gun, won't someone.
Oh oh a gun.

Half the population, one percent of wealth,
Half the population, one percent of wealth,
Blame the mother sell the sister,
Blame the mother, sell the sister,
Oh before I blow you away.

Won't someone give her a gun, won't someone,
Won't someone give her a gun, won't someone,
Won't someone give her a gun, won't someone,
Won't someone give her a gun, won't someone.

I can't imagine the world without me

What I tell is a different story,
What i have, I take, then give it all away,
So if you'd like to come this way,
Then help me climb the walls that stand before me.

I wanna know,
If this is just a game,
Can anybody play,
Can everybody win,
Can you believe it,

I may be lost, i may be blind,
I may be cursing most of the time
But it's half the fun,
And in this world we spin and shout
We want it all we want it now,
They said "oh shut your mouth
You don't know what you talk about".

I wanna know,
If this is just a game,
Can anybody play,
Can everybody win.

Another show another scene,
The city sleeps below you sing a lullaby,
Another show another scene and,
I can't imagine the world without me,
I can't imagine the world without me,
I can't imagine the world without me, Hey,
I'm on a roll, i'm on a roll, la la la la.

I'm on a roll la la la la,
I'm on a roll la la la la,
I'm on a roll la la la la,
Me me me me me me me me me,
Me me me me me me me me.

Bellyache

Impotence, the price of a dark affair,
It's more than a bellyache,
There's something alive in here.

What do I, what do I care now that it's over,
What do I care I, what do i care now that it's over.

Splinters...shatter my one track mind
I lie on a sea of nails and thorns
Spitting out the same old line.

Oh. what do I, what do I care now that it's over,
What do I care I, what do I care now that it's over.

Now you shoot me down,
Serenade my ears my heart i'm falling falling,
Echoing your sound.

Winter's breath all fall down,
Spin me out and spin me round,
Enter darkness enter lies, oh no.

What do I, what do I care now that it's over
What do I care I what do I care now that it's over
Now you shoot me down, serenade my ears my heart
I'm falling, falling, echoing your sound.

Taste of you

Now the fire has gone away,
I face you with a broken pen,
And sympathy and gratitude,
dissolve into disaray.
I relied, undisguised,
Followed all you'd say,

Was your weakness momentary,
You're devotion temporary.

It's a question of taste,
Like a slap in the face,
Let the vain do what they do,
Did you laugh at my innocence.

Custom made but gone astray,
Erase you with a pencilhead,
I'm bulletproof now I hide,
But somehow i was happy then,
do you know, how lost, how lost, how lost,

Was your weakness, momentary,
Your devotion, temporary.

It's a question of taste, like a slap in the face,
It's a question of taste, let the vain do,
What they do, did you laugh at my innocence.

I don't want to live forever, I just want some... ohohohoh
I don't want to live forever, I just want some...ohohohoh

Insomniac

I think you ought to know,
I think we've lost control dear,
Whatever turned you on,
You put it up your nose dear,
And though the feeling was sublime,
I think we're running out of time,
'Cos when you found it, you'd fix it,
Then lose it and then you'd go.

Will you be long, will you be long dear,
Will you be long, i'm waiting,
No sleep at all, carry me home,
No sleep at all, carry me home,
Won't you take me there.

I serenade the walls,
Young people have it all dear
And surely life is a gas,
We never had it bad dear
Oh was it pointless from the start
Or did we cultivate the arts
I swim in circles, in puddles, in trouble and then I go
Will I be long, will I be long dear,
Will I be strong, you're waiting

No sleep at all, carry me home,
No sleep at all, carry me home,
Won't you take me here,
I don't feel good inside,
I don't feel good inside,
My darling don't you cry, home, home.

No sleep at all, carry me home,
No sleep at all, carry me home,
Won't you, won't you home home, won't you take me there,
I'm ready home, home, won't you take me there,
I'm willing home, home, won't you take me there,
I want you home, home, won't you take me there.

Call me names

I say i've been meaning to move your way,
I hope that no one will make fun of me,
I go live in a new society, I wanna live in it, live in it,
Wanna learn, wanna live, live wanna learn,
Wanna live it it, live in it, oh i'm ready to learn.

I don't know,is it the same for everyone,
Maybe that i've done something wrong,
Why do they call me names.

Outside, will you come out and play with me,
I've been scrubbing at my skin you see,
But the colour still remains on me,
I wanna be the same, be the same,
Wanna be, wanna be the same as you,
Wanna be the same, be the same,
Oh i'm ready to go.

I don't know, is it the same for everyone,
Maybe that i've done something wrong,
Why do they call me names.

Why do you call me names X4
Call me names X11
Why do you call me names X2
Why, call me names
Oh why, call me names.

Close ... But

You're moving in a circle,
I'm coming on in a little dizzy spells,
And the room is all forlorn,
We could be stuck in substance hell,
Some more of this is what we need,
So hand in hand and off we sway.

I'm not that close, I'm not that close to you,
I'm not that close, I'm not that close to you.

Your face is taking pictures of itself,
I close my eyes and sighs explode,
We sellotape the telephone,
And all the little voices grow,
Some more of this is what we need,
So hand in hand and off we sway.

I'm not that close, i'm not that close to you, oh oh oh,
I'm not that close, I'm not that close to you,
It's only the state I'm in and i'm about to come down,
It's only the mess within in about to come out.
La la la la la,la ....

It's only the state I'm in, I'm about to come down,
It's only the mess within is about to come out,
I'm not that close, I'm not that close to you,
I'm not that close, I'm not that close to you.
No

Cold feet warm heart

You were grounded,
Hadn't eaten or slept for days,
When I found you,
You're washed out,
Your life, your loves,
Everyone founders,
But you are a spell that i'm under.

Alive, live for the rest of your life,
You're alive, live for the rest of your life,
It's the way it goes.

You were wounded,
Suck the poison from your vein,
Sow a seed for you,
A fever once again,
Your life, your death,
Everything's wrong,
But you are the heart of this song.

Alive, live for the rest of your life,
You're alive, live for the rest of your life,
You're alive, live, live, live, la la la la la la live,
You are alive, you are alive.

It's the way it goes,
It's the way we are,
It's the way we chose,
It's the way we are.

My life your death,
Everyone founders,
But you are a spell that i'm under.

Alive, live for the rest of your life
You're alive, live for the rest of your life
You're alive, live, live, live, la la la la la la live,
You are alive, you are alive.

Scream
 
What's it all about ah ha ha,
Spent my whole life praying for a chance to be here,
And things are not the same as expected,
It's been a hard time.

Oh to be wrong,
There's no heaven in the sky,
Have you ever,
Well here's your chance and you can't tell me
This is wrong
There's no heaven in the sky
Have you ever, have you ever, have you ever
Cared to scream.

First you steal my breath ha ha ha,
And now i'm short on trust,
I stand up for the test,
And then I lie down.

Oh to be wrong,
There's no heaven in the sky,
Have you ever,
Well here's your chance and you can't tell us,
This is wrong,
There's no heaven in the sky,
Have you ever, have you ever, have you ever
Cared to scream,
Cared to scream.

Let me take you down,
'Cos i feel divine,
Like some holy cow,
On a fallen shrine,
Like a waterfall,
Made of alcohol
Oh why, tell me why.

Waiting for a friend ah ha ha,
It's been a long time,
I'm waiting here again,
Such a long time.

Long, Long, Long,
Long, Long, long,
You, oh you bring me down,
You, you kill me,
You kill me,
You kill me.

Car fiction

In a taxi chasing for the sun,
All around us strangers everyone,
With no hope for what they hope for,
We could drive all of our tears away.

Oh oh ho run run away,
Maybe we could run away,
Oh oh ho run run away,
Maybe we could run away,
Oh oh ho.

In a taxi ride that ends too soon,
The city skyline tries to kick the moon,
We have no time for what they wait for,
We can drive all of our tears away.

Oh oh ho run run away,
Maybe we could run away,
Oh oh ho run run away,
Maybe we could run away,
Oh oh ho.

You and I against the walled in generation,
You and I could kick the walls away,
We have no time for what they wait for,
We can run fast we can run far.

Oh oh ho run run away,
Maybe we could run away,
Oh oh ho run run away,
Maybe we could run away,
Oh oh ho run run away,
Maybe we could run away,
Oh oh ho run run away,
Maybe we could run away,
Oh oh ho.

King of the Kerb

Sugar smile savvy,
The king of the kerb,
Got a temper in the style of a bomb,
Got his friends in his pocket,
Or safe behind bars,
All the local boys know what he's done.

He turns if on, he turns it on, he turns it on.
Same boys doing it for themselves,
There's somebody out there doing it for you,
Safe while you're paying out for your health,
They're the kings of the kerb,
And everybody knows what they're worth.

Sugar smile savvy,
The king of the kerb,
Keeps the order in this part of the town,
All the shadows in the alley,
The shapes at the bar,
Like to service him when he does the round.

He turns if on, he turns it on, he turns it on.
Same boys doing it for themselves,
There's somebody out there doing it for you,
Safe while you're paying out for your health,
They're the kings of the kerb,
And everybody knows what they're worth.

Safe from harm and safe from greed,
A little protection is at that you need,
Safe from harm and safe from greed,
They're just a racket machine.

Same boys doing it for themselves,
There's somebody out there doing it for you,
Same boys doing it for themselves,
There's somebody out there doing it for you,
Same boys doing it for themselves,
There's somebody out there looking it for you,
Safe while you're paying out for your health,
They're the kings of the kerb,
They're the kings of the kerb,
They're the kings of the kerb,
And everybody knows what they're worth.

Great thing

I wanna do great things,
I don't wanna compromise,
I wanna know what life is,
I wanna know everything,
I wanna do great things,
I don't wanna compromise,
I wanna know what love is,
Is it something I do to myself.

All is fair in love and war,
Or so they say and so the saying goes,
But I've seen more broken hearts,
Than you can count the bullets in a war,
Oh what do I know,
There's gotta be so much I don't know.

I wanna do great things,
I don't wanna compromise,
I wanna know what life is,
I wanna try everything,
I wanna do great things,
I don't wanna compromise,
I wanna know what love is,
Is it something I do to myself,
Something I do to myself.

What is life apart from memories or
Dreams and friendships we have known
And it smells childhood tales
Contemplating clothes that you have worn
Oh what do I know
There's gotta be so much I don't know

I wanna do great things,
I don't wanna compromise,
I wanna know what life is,
Is it something I do to myself,
Something I do to myself.

Never wanted many things,
Except the chance to learn,
From my mistakes
Funny how you never learn,
But know them when they,
Come around again,
Oh what do I know,
There's gotta be so much I don't know.

I wanna do great things,
I don't wanna compromise,
I wanna know what life is,
I wanna try everything,
I wanna do great things,
I don't wanna compromise,
I wanna know what love is,
Is it something I do to myself,
Something I do to myself,
Something you do to yourself.

Natural Animal

In and out of prison,
Sitting in a pit of a cell,
Lick the blood of the wall,
Razor blade love letter hell,
So you left me there,
Didn't care that they'd break down the door,
Were you really late,
Did you run away,
Left me to be caught.

Where are you now?,
Where are you now?,
You're supposed to be a friend of mine,
You're supposed to be a friend of mine.

In and out of trouble,
Pushed in a school full of fools,
I'm a natural animal,
Bent by the rules,
You know what I've done,
It's in everyone,
Lurking in the cold,
And you taught me all that I've ever known,
Why let me go?.

Where are you now?,
Where are you now?,
You're supposed to be a friend of mine,
You're supposed to be a friend of mine.

Save the life of my own,
Save the life of my own,
Where are you now?,
Where are you now?.

Go away

Here it comes the fools parade,
Another clueless masquerade,
And they're way too slow,
A waste of space,
Yes they're way too slow,
Get out of the way.

Go away,
In my way,
Go away,
In the way oh.

Here we go a suckers ride,
Hearts and minds are paralyzed,
And they're way too stupid,
They'll be just fine,
Yes they're way too stupid,
A waste of time,
Everybody's looking for something,
Everybody's looking for clues,
And they're way too late,
They missed the news,
And they think they're great,
With their fucked up points of view.

Go away,
In my way,
Go away,
In the way oh.

All because you thought for yourself now,
Naughty girl you thought for yourself now.

Go away,
Go away.

Pantyhose and roses

She leaves her brains at the door,
She drops her guts on the floor,
She only listens out for everyday noises,
She very calmly ignores,
The littie things she abhors,
She's made her mind up to be tidy.

It could change, it will never,
It could change, it will never,
It could change, it will never,
It could change, it will never,
It could change.

He keeps his fingernails neat,
He cleans the car once a week,
He keeps an eye out for resistitle bargains,
But everynight in his sleep,
He dreams of sex on the street,
He longs for pantyhose and roses.

It could change, it will never,
It could change, it will never,
It could change, it will never,
It will change, it could never,
It could change, change,
Oh!.

All these years, all this time,
Learn to suffer, compromise,
Turn away, tolerate,
Learn to suffer what you hate.

And it could change, it will never,
It could change, it will never,
It could change, it will never,
It will change, it could never,
It could change, change.

You got me walking alone,
You got me walking alone,
You got me walking alone,
You got me walking alone.

Something hot in a cold country

You should have been a rambler,
A counterfeit gambler,
Would you steal the sunflowers for me,
I see you've been fighting,
With molotov writing,
They tried to drag you under, I see.

Did they try to tell you you're strange,
Did they try to push you away,
Hold on.

Feed the fire, fan the flame,
TiII the world remembers your name,
Till you found of the sight what you see.

Feed the fire, fan the flame,
Till the world remembers your name,
Something hot in a cold country.

Hold on to your spirits,
You're a pain, not a poet,
You're special and they know it,
They can see,
They throw a net that pins you to the ground,
Don't let their blindness bring you down,
Be stubborn and enioy it like me.

Did they try to tell you you're strange,
Did they try to push you away,
Hold on.

Feed the fire, fan the flame,
TiII the world remembers your name,
Till you found the fire that you see.

Feed the fire, fan the flame,
Till the world remembers your name,
Something hot in a cold country.

I won't see you falling,
Hold on Hold on.

Feed the fire, fan the flame,
Till the world remembers your name,
Till you find out the sight that you see.

Feed the fire, fan the flame,
Till the world remembers your name,
Something hot in a cold country.

I won't see you falling,
Hold on.

Four letter word

What a nice surprise,
Well have I spoilt your appetite,
And I told you once,
I told you once,
So let me tell you twice,
I wanted to say,
A toast to emotion,
Raise your glasses high,
And turn them this way,
A balance of hormones,
That make you feel like no one else,
Make you just the sane.

Here's to love, here's to hate,
Here's to all the things that makes me realise,
This is a four letter word,
Here's to fear, here's to fate,
Here's to all the things that makes me realise,
This is a four letter word oh oh.

It's coming loud and clear,
God I fancy you my dear,
Well I might be wrong,
I might be wrong,
I might need glasses all along,
My deepest emotions,
Nothing more than chemical equations,
Symphonies of stimulants,
Swimming round in a beating gland,
Really caused a traffic jam.

Here's to love, here's to hate,
Here's to everything that makes me realise,
This is a four letter word,
Here's to fear, here's to fate,
Here's to all the things that makes me realise,
This is a four letter word,
Here's to love, here's to hate,
Here's to everything that makes me realise,
This is a four letter word.

Nobody like you

Inside it harbours,
Desire bruises my skin,
So near I'm hungry,
I'd like to have more,
In control, I've lost it,
l'd like to try it again,
It warms inside me,
We're moving one step closer each time.

There's nobody like you,
Nobody like you,
Nobody like you,
Nobody like you anyway, oh anyway,
There's nobody like you,
Nobody like you,
Nobody can touch you,
Nobody like you anyway oh anyway,
Everyone knows.

We fall, slow motion,
I taste your breath in my veins,
Like waves, vibrations,
It's coming up again,
Let me climb inside you,
Caress your fever tongue,
Spread my wings around you,
And we can slide.

There's nobody like you,
Nobody like you,
Nobody like you,
Nobody like you anyway, oh anyway,
There's nobody like you,
Nobody like you,
Nobody can touch you,
Nobody like you anyway oh anyway,
Everyone knows.

I've always craved,
I tried to feed the hunger of an empty grave,
You've shown me secrets I've not forgotten,
l'll give you all the love that I take,
That I take.

Inside it harbours,
Desire bruises my skin,
So near I'm hungry,
We're moving one step closer each time.

There's nobody like you,
Nobody like you,
Nobody like you,
Nobody like you anyway, oh anyway,
There's nobody like you,
Nobody like you,
Nobody can touch you,
Nobody like you anyway oh anyway.

There's nobody like you,
Can you can you can oh oh oh,
There's nobody like you,
Can you can you can oh oh oh,
There's nobody like you,
Can you can you can oh oh oh.

In the year

In the year when your bicycle broke,
You were crying in the yard,
But the world was a glorious game,
New adventures stole your heart.

It will come, it will go,
But you hold on to what you know,
You play your part,
You play your part,
You only full for what you really want to.

In the year when the future was lost,
You were fighting in the class,
Headed west with your wits and snarl,
Left your parents in the past,
'78 was the year you explored,
Tore your clothes and shaved your head,
Joined a band with a broken down van,
Thought your life was really swell.

It will come, it will go,
But you hold on to what you know,
You play your part,
You play your part,
You only full for what you really want to,
You only full for what you really want to.

Save it all, save it all,
Save it all and want your tears away,
Save it all, save it all,
Save it all and want those tears,
It has gone, it has gone,
But you hold on to what you know,
You play your part,
You play your part,
You only full for what you really want to,
You play your part,
You only full for what you really want to.

Dark therapy

High above the roof tops,
Higher than the milky way,
Slipping through the hour glass,
Shooting up the desert plain,
You are one life older than before,
But you can't stop the chill,
Now you're falling in slow motion,
Though the air is still.

If you close your eyes than I can take you all the way,
Let me close your eyes and I will take it all the way.

You are on the outside,
Hands upon the window sill,
I am on the inside,
Carving up the hunters kill.

If you close your eyes than I can take you all the way,
Let me close your eyes and I will take it all the way.

Cruising on a missile,
Cruising on a desert plain,
Wading through a minefield,
Wading through the monsoon rain,
Surfing on an oilspill,
Surfing on a perfect wave,
Porn upon the airwaves,
Rituals of the mating game.

If you close your eyes than I can take you all the way,
Let me close your eyes and I will take it all the way.

Worms and angels

Here and now,
We are alone,
Time she will hold her breath,
Only the worms and angels,
Know our names,
But they have not found us,
Although they surround us,
I feel the distance closing.

Come along,
For you and I know,
We've lived through the centuries,
We've ridden the darkest horses,
All our lives,
We hunted our enemies,
We fought with a fallacy,
It's time we were all God's children.

Far away,
The galaxies soar,
The stars are exploding still,
I wish we could fly away,
Fly away.

Here and now,
For you and I know,
True love is deathless,
These crumbling days are ending,
By my side,
Let's walk in the garden,
We'll sleep in the ivy,
We'll be with the worms and angels.

Bulldog Baby

Stood up at a border street
A souped up strut on swollen feet
My loss remembered incomplete
What memory knows I can't repeat
Offered army soul salvation
Sandwich choice of God and nation
Haloed voices, chiselled faces
Fill my head with empty spaces

Out of the breakdown of the whole
Back to the choices on repeat
Out of a life put on hold

Once again a bulldog baby
Classified as cheap and lazy
Inner pity meat mutation
Pay the price for approbation
Welcome to the new dictators
Power, drugs and imitators

Out of the breakdown of the whole
Back to the choices on repeat
Out of a life put on hold

Mother's dressed in alligator
All good children love to hate her

Out of the breakdown of the whole
Back to the choices on repeat
Out of a life put on hold
Into the fallout of belief

I'm Not A Saint

Everybody's staring at my...
Everybody's out to catch my...eye...
I've gotta think it over
I've gotta think it over

Everybody's got somebody to...
All I wanted was a body to...hide...
I've gotta think it over
I've gotta think it over

I'm not a saint. I'm not a saint. I'm not a saint. I'm not a saint.

Dog is barking, head is hurting
Car is chasing, hands are dirty I've gotta think it over
I've gotta think it over

I'm not a saint. I'm not a saint.
(It's the way I feel inside)
I'm not a saint. I'm not a saint.
(Takes me over sometimes)

Here Comes The Big Rush

Save your point of view
For the manic charm that he puts you through
When he wears your pearls, your ruby dress
And he looks so good with his sunken chest
There's a certain charm
To the pretty boy that is on my arm
He's my double friend, a boy and a girl
when he says:

Paint my face, lick your mouth
Fake a yawn and we'll go out and glow
We're on our way to somewhere in particular
I'll take you somewhere, where you haven't been
And I'll show you a good time, like you've never seen
Here comes the big rush

There's a special ring
To his Cuban heels and his six-pack swing
His mother's clothes are his new disguise
And his good advice when he says:

Vanity's a virtue, lets no one in to hurt you
I'll take you somewhere, where you haven't been
And I'll show you a good time, like you've never seen
Here comes the big rush

You're one of the boys
Pump that pipe dream, sell you something
New, new, new
We're on our way to somehwere in particular
I'll take you somewhere, where you haven't been
And I'll show you a good time, like you've never seen
Here comes the big rush

You're one of the boys
Pump that pipe dream, sell you something
pump that pipe dream, sell you something
New new

Iris Art

Shattered glass, shooting stars, silver sparks
Come and shine on me
Take your time, don't hurry baby
Break a smile, when you come to me

I'm up on a high
Catch me if you fall
Up on a high
Your love fills me like a waterfall

Iris art, skin on skin, let me in
Take a ride with me
Take a trip, don't worry baby
Love the way we satisfy a need

I'm up on a high
Catch me if you fall
Up on a high
Catch me if you fall
You love fills me like a waterfall

Love. Love. Love. Love.
Love. Love. Love. Love. Love.

Slaughterhouse nursery rhyme
Numb it with your anodyne
Seraphim serpentine
Wrap me in your anodyne heart

I'm up on a high
Catch me if you fall
Up on a high
Catch me if you fall
You love fills me like a waterfall

The world is flat

It is not too late to carry on
So you've made mistakes
And here's another one
Oh but you deserve another chance
Chase it round until you face yourself

The world is flat and we are insane
And we have fallen off again
It really helps to know the way

What if you take more than you deserve
What if you give all and you get nothing back
Sell your soul not your stereo
Take your favourite songs and sail off

The world is flat and we are insane
And we have fallen off again
The world is right and we are mad
And world opinions where it's at
Don't rate the score don't take the blame
The world is flat and we're insane

I won't be sad I won't be sorry
I've no regrets and i don't worry
I'll roll the sail and i won't let go
I'll ride the wave until tomorrow

There are some who do and some do not
There are some who can't
And we're the other ones
Shape your fate, let your body go
Take your favourite songs and sail away

The world is flat and we are insane
And we have fallen off again
The world is right and we are mad
And world opinions where it's at
Don't rate the score don't take the blame
The world is flat and we're insane

lalalalalalala..., lalalalalalala...

Everyone Knows Better

I know there's a certain amount
To what you're thinking
My hopes never seem to amount
To more than stopping smoking

Everyone knows better. I'll do it anyway
Everyone knows better oh yeah

Heroes never seem
To allow for self-expression
Lovers stick around
To allow what they think you're missing

Everyone knows better. I'll do it anyway
Everyone knows better. I'll do it anyway

Looking around
To avoid what's in front of you
Good intentions
Wrapped round like some old sweater
A vain hope
That it might be good for you

You mind is made
Make your mind up
Make your mind up
Make your mind up
We like to make the same mistakes

Sunshine
A ray of hope in a hopeless situation
Suntanned
Your reward for the hopeful hours that you spend
Burning

Everyone knows better. I'll do it anyway
Everyone knows better. I'll do it anyway
Everyone knows better. I'll do it anyway
Everyone thinks they know better
I'll do it anyway

Looking around
To avoid what's in front of you
Good intentions
Wrapped round like some old sweater
A vain hope
That it might be good for you
Your mind is made

Wired On

I wanna get wired on something new
I wanna get high on something
I wanna get wired on something new

Every wide open space
It's the gaping holes that get to you
They frighten you
An echo of your emptiness
Every lie that you've fed
You can kiss my open spaces
I am safe from you
I'm better now, I'm better now

I wanna get wired on something new
I wanna get high on something
I wanna get wired on something new

Every scan I've erased
Leave a memory that will prey on you
An overspill
I hope it will, I hope it will
All the time I have wasted

Tasted Bitterness
Now I confess, you waste my space
At any time, at any rate

I wanna get wired on something new
I wanna get high on something
I wanna get wired on something new

Now you're up against a wall
It's the other side that scares you
And you're groping through the hole
And you're hoping for a way out
Your strength is on it's last legs
You could be somewhere else
Instead you're blinded by the way out
The way out
And it's right here

I wanna get wired on something new
I wanna get high on something
I wanna get wired on something new
I wanna get high on something
I wanna get high on something

O

I get it on
When I lay my fingers on
Let me drift away
Take me to a place I have known before
Let me hear the words you know I adore
Let me slip away to a world I know

When you sing
Oh oh oh oh take me
I am a slave to your charms
Turn it on

And I wanna celebrate
I can hear your song
Rushing through my veins, it surrounds me now
Touching me inside, I can ride the sound

When you sing
Oh oh oh oh take me
I am a slave to your charms
Turn it on

Can I lay my fingers on?
Soaking in the way you shine
Your rhythm slides around my mind
I've really got it now
Serenades that nearly split my senses
Oh so special
Turn it on

When you sing
Oh oh oh oh take me
I am a slave to your charms
Turn it on

And I wanna celebrate
Get it on
Get it on
Get it on
Get it on

Bleed

Where and why this journey lies
With faded sighs for every mile
I'm awake
Hunger bleeds in each and everyone of us
We chase our dreams unaware

And I never had the chance to say no
And I never had the chance to say no
Don't walk away

Where's the trust the one in us
Entwined, inclined and gladly blind
Fade away
Hunger bleeds in each and everyone of us
And now I'm lost

And I never had the chance to say no
And I never had the chance to say no
Don't walk away
Say no

Paradise

In all day, out all night
You and I see the sights in paradise
Very nice
Take me home, do it 'til your hear aches
And then you'll know my mind

And if I stay
I'd only drive you mad
I'm not that stable, I'm not so right in a way
I find myself at odds wanting to be here
Never arrive

Love and Peace
Ill at ease with naked greed
Hunger feeding, aim to please, what a teaser
Maybe I owe it to my own ways
But then I know my mind
You see, I know, I've been there before

And if I stay
I'd only drive you mad
I'm not that stable, I'm not so right in a way
I find myself at odds wanting to be here
Never arrive

If I stay
I'm not the type of girl
Waitin for someone
Waiting at home there's a way out
And only time can tell
Will be here, Will I begone
In all day, out all night
You and I see the sights in paradis

Angel B

Time stands still
When you fear your hope is gonna fade
Hope doesn't come
'Til you catch your fear and give it away
I'm waiting for the tide
The darkness of this night
To fade into the night
And it won't be long
I hope it won't be long
Oh no
Told me they would come
Told me they were gonna take him away
He's the only one
He's the one that makes me feel this way
And don't you criticise
What you can't understand
He's the pulse inside my hand
He's the only one
He is the only one

I see, hear, taste, I breathe him
Seven years and thirteen days
Oh I wouldn't forsake him
My own disturbed angel boy
I would wait a thousand years for you

Breathe into your heart
Let me taste the colour of your core
Memory rewind to the heady time we had before

Coming up, I'm coming down
Reaching up and falling down
The time is coming round
And it won't be long
I hope it won't be long

I see, hear, taste, I breathe him
Seven years and thirteen days
Oh I wouldn't forsake him
My own disturbed angel boy
I would wait a thousand years for you

Coming up, I'm coming down
Reaching up and falling down
The time is coming round
And it won't be long
I know it won't be long

I see, hear, taste, I breathe him
Seven years and thirteen days
Oh I wouldn't forsake him
My own disturbed angel boy
I see, hear, taste, I breathe him
Seven years and thirteen days
Oh I wouldn't forsake him
My own disturbed angel boy I would wait a thousand years for you
I would wait a thousand years for you
I would wait a thousand years for you

There's something hiding behind your immaculate smile
You have always known, so let it out

I fell your anger swell the radical in your style, girl
Take the cross you bear and throw it out

She's coming up, coming up
Breathe it in and let it out
Let it go, be yourself, take a shot
It's what you've always known now
You've always known now
What you waiting for

It's gonna take as long, as long as it will take
To strike a match to your silence
Take the pain you bear and burn it out

In a sense, there's no way out
Innocence is all you're born with
Inner sense dictates the way you wheel
The way you deal with knowing who you are

Fight the maze of denial

Fear of flying

Anyhow, anyway
Break the round that brings you down
Death behind the wheel
That ground you down to how you feel
The time that flew away
The time that flew away

You know what you are doing now
Can you take this out of here?
You and i can build it up
You alone can make it real
Oh don’t you slow down
No don’t you slow down

Is there a price to pay?
Overload or out of bounds
Death behind the wheel
Or pawn it all for something real
The one that flew away

You know what you are doing now
Can you take this out of here?
You and i can build it up
You alone can make it real
Oh don’t you slow down
Hell don’t you slow down
No don’t you slow down

Tell me why

Do you ask yourself why
You run scared, with nowhere to go
Your heart full of sundays
The surface of saturday nights
You stare at the floor
The fistful of dreams that you crave
Got burned out on nicotine stains
When nobody called

Tell me why, you’re alone my friend
Tell me why, do you fill yourself on empty
Tell me why, you’re alone again

Do you ask yourself why
You don’t care for no-one at all
You trip on the mainline
You’re bound to the static that’s there
All you’ve ever known

Tell me why, you’re alone my friend
Tell me why, do you fill yourself on empty
Tell me why, you’re alone again

Nowhere to go, nowhere to go
Nobody knows you’re all alone
Nowhere to go, nowhere to go
Nobody knows the way to go

Down to earth

Turn the light out
Another day’s ending
Put a load away
Stars are still shining high
All the uninvited, cold hearted, stay foreign
In the beginning
Wore the stars in your stripes
Queen of the home parade
Centre stage passed you by
Fettered gains soak the blood stains
You choke for it

Fell back down to earth and took the first plane
Heading for the fast lane
Fell back down to earth and took the first ride
Heading for the overdrive
Heading for the fire

In the fall out
Found a cold ending
Sooner or later
You’re gonna know why
You burn a light for your past like a lone comet

Fell back down to earth and took the first plane
Heading for the fast lane
Fell back down to earth and took the first ride
Heading for the overdrive
Heading for the fire

Digit

Spread the seed and multiply
There’s no disease, the human race is digital
Pacified by fluoride, genetically modified
Is it genocide?
Burger bar where slaughter chars
They pay the rent, they pay the rent
So it’s alright?

Do you know why?
Do you know why?
They claim it all
They claim it all
They claim it all
And they claim you

Now we’re coming round to the sucker
Picking pockets in the rat race
Spitting at the wrong face
Any dream they can buy again,
Make them come again
So they can turn it all into a sale again

And here am i
Snorting incense in a backroom
Sitting in a vacuum
Falling apart at the seam again
Till i’m numb again
Close the door onto a silent end

There must be something more than this
There must be something more than this

Are we coming down to the sound
Of 8 billion on a bad day?
Maybe later on we’re
Gonna find out the hard way
Someday
Is it too late? Too late?

There must be something more than this
There must be something more than this

Dying

Give me starlight
I’m dying
Give me appetite
I’m dying
Give me everything
No higher than the waist
Give me reason
I’m dying
To know your warm side
All you radiate
To see the sunrise
Out on the way beyond
The space between the lines
Where it’s only natural

Give me sunflowers
I’m dying
Give me opium
I’m dying
Give me symphonies
A choir for the wake
Give me fever
I’m dying
To know your warm side
All you radiate
To see the sunrise
On the way beyond
The space between the lines
Where it’s only natural

You will never know what you’ve done
You will never know what you’ve done
You will never know what you’ve done

Kali yuga

Gonna do what we do together
We’re gonna find out
What we do to ourselves
How we want it to be
And we shoot to the centre
Of our own shores
For a motionless core
On the western front

I look round at what i see
This ain’t where i want to be
Looking for some kind of plan
Oh yes i am

I’m not going down

Easing through this phase together
We’re gonna do all
To return to the flow
And the rest will fall
And the rest will fall

I look round at what i see
This ain’t where i want to be
Looking for the word in hand
Oh yes i am

I’m not going down

Say yes

Look back at old ways
Gonna give it all away
Look back at old ways
Gonna give it all away

I’m not going down

It is the western way
It is the western way

Everything is all

You and i are here alone
I can see you in my shadow
We both tolerate the good times
For everybody else
I don’t want to wait another round
I don’t want to wait another round
Show me what it is

Can you see it?
When you’re on the outside
With your eye on the keyhole
Everything is all
You know, you know,
Is there room at the innside?
When you’re going nowhere
Everything is all

I don’t want to wait another round
I don’t want to wait another round
I don’t want to wait another round
But i know i’d like to see it like you do
Show me what it is

Can you see it?
When you’re on the outside
With your eye on the keyhole
Everything is all
You know, you know
When there’s room at the innside
But you’re going nowhere
Everything is all

You’re a face i might have known
Had i seen you in myself
And i sure would like to see it like you do
Show me what it is

Can you see it?
When you’re on the outside
With your eye on the keyhole
Everything is all
Hello, hello
Any room at the innside?
When you’re going nowhere
Everything is all

A map is not the territory

I don’t wanna save your world
I don’t want anyone knowing
I don’t wanna stake what shines
I don’t want anyone knowing
I don’t wanna lead your riot
Anyone can lead a riot

I wear my cover well
I’m gonna find out who you are
Now i know what you’ve done to me
You paid for the enemy
The cold slide you hide
You horde about you
I don’t doubt your downfall

You showed me how to word it out
Told me it was meant to be
Winner gets to carve it up
Loser is history

But i knew all along

I’m gonna find out who you are
Now i know what you’ve done to me
You paid for the enemy
The cold slide you hide
You horde about you
I don’t doubt your downfall
I’ll bring you down

Hide awhile
Here among the wasted high and outs
Moving in closer
You go to sleep and i’ll be right behind you
Always
You showed me how it’s done
You fired the guiding gun
It’s how the east is run
And how the west was won
Amen

Hide me now
Among the dead and wasted
Hide me now

Ondine

You say you can walk away
Any time at all
You say you’re not afraid to die
But you’re not sleeping

You are bringing me down so slow
Bringing me down so slow
Bringing me down

You burn so cold
Lost your voice when it needed you
Black veins tied you prisoner
To coax your severed highs
But this is the plastic age
The quiet rage is damned and civilised

You are bringing me down so slow
(give a little out and you’re bound to take a fall)
Bringing me down so slow
(give a little out and you’re bound to take a fall)
Bringing me down so

Tell who made it hurt
Won’t you say who made it hurt
Won’t you tell me now who made it hurt again

You ache for something
You ache for something

Point dume

Drove yourself to the end
To the point of dume
Caught the summer breeze
Broken sails on the shore
Like the wayward bones
Of the way you were
Out of time, out of choice
Like the lines from the songs
You used to know

Where are the wilson brothers?
Endless summers
Midnight drifters
All gone too deep

Drove yourself to the edge
To the point of dume
No-one to hold you here
Sold your highs for the lows
From the valley to the coast
You used to know

Where are the wilson brothers?
Endless summers
Midnight drifters
All gone too deep

Where do they go?
Where do they go from here?

Gravity pulls

Gravity pulls

Satellites fall away
Avery time i close my eyes
The sum of my own denial
Echoes for a thousand miles

Gravity pulls
Shadows on the runway
Sent to battle over me
Layers in reality

I’ll find an open road
Sleep out on the back seat
I need to see the sky
The colour of the blue sea
I could be gone a while

We have come a long way
Further than our reason lies
All that still survives is stranger than we realize

I’ll find an open road
Sleep out on the back seat
I need to see the sky
The colour of the blue sea
I could be gone a while

Gravity pulls
Falling from a stolen high
I’m out of the will that i put in
Nothing more to hide behind

I’ll find an open road
Sleep out on the back seat
I need to see the sky
The colour of the blue sea
I could be gone a while

I need to see the sky

To get me through the good times

I keep an open invitation
To a world of isolation
It’s an old right

I found a home in hibernation
Lost the self in preservation
Built the walls high

I joke about the bad times
To get me through the good times
About all those long nights
I go wading through
Keep running down a one way
Giving all for a brand new day
But now i’m all out

Nothing to lose
Nothing to lose
Nothing to save

From a momentary glory
To a solitary story
It’s a short ride
Through the trials and tribulations
For the bane of reputation
It’s a long fight
But i’m done

I joke about the bad times
To get me through the good times
About all those long nights
I go wading through
Keep running down a one way
Giving all for a brand new day,
But now i’m all out

Nothing to lose
Nothing to lose
Nothing to save

No more ties

You started a fire in the heart of a wasted life

Life is easy, where you’re coming from
You take what pleases and you turn it on
Born from a wayward style that’s running wild
You’re the stranger that was ever known

You know i was living on doubts
You know i was living on odds
You’re my favourite

You started a fire in the heart of a wasted life
I’ve got something to burn, anytime, anyway you like

Take me closer than i’ve ever been
Paint a canvas like i’ve never seen
Red for the blood that drives you ever round
You’re the danger i’ve been waiting on

You know i was living on doubts
You know i was living on odds
You’re my favourite

You started a fire in the heart of a wasted life
I’ve got something to burn, anytime, anyway you like

It’s just the way that you are
It’s just the way that you are

We like the way that you are
We like the way that you are

Djinn

In the idle light of a fading day
There’s a past i lost
One i gave away
One i used to know
Caught in the dust of a desert plain
Waiting
For the rains to fall

It’s something that i feel, rain falls
Something that i feel, when rain falls
More than a world away
It’s always here inside

In all that has overgrown
Almost underground
Could never be all erased
Only lost and found
One i left behind
Caught in the dust of a desert plain
Waiting
For the rains to come

It’s something that i feel, rain falls
Something that i feel, when rain falls
More than a world away
It’s always here inside

Big sky mind

Don’t look unless you’re leaning on a wall
Or you’ll fall over, you'll fall over
Don’t look until you’re ready for that fall
And you’ll be flying, you'll be flying

Don’t remember any memory at all
And you’ll be laughing, you'll be laughing

Look up at the big sky mind
It makes you feel so small

Don’t look back at all the things you’ll never know
They’re never ending, never ending
Don’t return to where you never meant to go
Keep on moving, keep on moving
Don’t belong to any corner of the world
Don’t be a stranger, be a stranger

Look up at the big sky mind
It makes you feel so small

Look up at the big sky mind
It makes you feel so small

Strangely drawn

All that i put on
Hid behind a mask, way too long
The part of me that has to run
Always found the path to your door

I need you to lean upon
Despite my claims of never letting on

I find myself strangely drawn

All that life becomes
Rarely dared to ask, was i wrong?
I’d hit upon a perfect plan
Only to denounce who i am

I need you to lean upon
Despite my claims of never letting on

I find myself strangely drawn

A good day

A good day
To watch the world pass you by
Pretend
There’s a friend in the herd

You ache for the real thing
But it’s hard to be sure
A shame
So much love had to die

When all the ones that bait you come by
And all that matters shakes you to your core
Then you remember how it was
Before the clamour of a strange dilemma
Before the flicker of a cold-eyed change
It will never be the same.

Regret
Leaves no room for mistakes
You hate
All the more that you love
They say “it’s the same thing”
But it’s hard to be sure
A good day
To watch the world pass you by

Run through it all, run through it all
Does it trigger thoughts that you never told?
Run through it all, run through it all
Does it trigger thoughts that you can’t control?

And you remember how it was
Before the clamour of a strange dilemma
Before the flicker of a cold-eyed change
It will never be the same.

A good day
To watch the world pass you by

What you deserve

Am i anyone to ease the way?
You want inner calm. I deviate
I’m not what you want to be, i’m not the same
Can’t live in doubt, with or without finding out
And here it ends

I’ve given all that i really want
And if i reap what i sow
Maybe i’m not the only one
Who needs room enough to grow

While i’m wide awake
This to you i dedicate
Learn to read between the words
I hope you get what you deserve

Am i anyone to compromise
Can’t live in doubt, with or without finding out
No sacrifice

One in a million

You got caught in the moment
Armed like the self assured
A bellyful of blown up ideals
Art as it’s own reward

You look back at your future now
To see how time erodes
But if the world would take you whole
You’d be first to swallow

Round up all the weirdos
All loners/freaks and anti heroes
One in a million...

You got stuck in the moment
The same arms tied you down
Your pockets full of burnt out idols
Art as a waste of time

The “great pretence of common sense”
A joke you always remembered
You gave up more than you know
You give up more than you know

But if the world would take you whole
You’d be first to swallow

Round up all the weirdos
All loners/freaks and anti heroes
One in a million...

The silent urge against the herd
it runs a course through your life
Oh never to be heard
Haunted by the shadows for most of your life

The “great pretence of common sense”
A joke you always remembered
You gave up more than you know
You give up more than you know

But if the world would take you whole
You’d be first to swallow

Round up all the weirdos
All loners/freaks and anti heroes
One in a million...

All tomorrow brings

My own life
A dream i make believe
A veil of blood ties
A worn out elegy

It won’t hurt
It won’t hurt
Anymore

My dark night
Your mood is on the wane
And dawn will set her light
To bring me home again

It won’t hurt
It won’t hurt
Anymore

When half the world lies
Alone in all their dreams
I’ll see the curtain rise
With all tomorrow brings

It won’t hurt
It won’t hurt
Anymore

My own life
A dream i make believe

Non Albums Tracks

One after 5AM

Amber leaves were falling,
Walls in dresses of grafiti,
The sky was a broken blue,
Take the desires of a madman,
With the wishes of a fool,
Equals me and you.

Time and time again I've drowned in my own desires,
Don't know why.

I jump in the ocean,
Land on a higher ground,
Stripped of a real emotion,
I'm one of the lost and found.

Breathing rocks deep underwater,
Tangled secrets sleep forgotten,
A leaving gift from you,
In a maze of misadventure,
Thought I felt what lay beside me,
Glimpsed a naked view.

Time and time again I've drowned in my own desires,
Don't know why.

I jump in the ocean,
Land on a higher ground,
Stripped of a real emotion,
I'm one of the lost and found,
One of the lost and found,
One of the lost and found,
One of the lost and found.

Atom

Sunken sky of silver gray,
A shame they took the sun away,
I could have done with some,
Today the world's a shade of blue,
Decidedly because of you,
Honey, I don't know why.

I've seen the sign, the silhouettes, the darker side,
I know so well.

I don't where I've fallen,
I don't where I've fallen,
Only one way to go,
I won't miss you.

Magic tales and pony tails and fingernails,
That should have been cleaned,
Yesterday, far away,
The memories swell,
The minutes fade,
Hours pass and decades fail,
Honey, I don't wanna die.

And life is like unfaithful sand,
Slipping through this opened hand.

I don't where I've fallen,
I don't where I've fallen,
Only one way to go,
I won't miss you,
I won't miss you,
I won't miss you.

We know better

I know the way the west wind blows,
The way temptation grows,
The way that fortunes flow.

La la la la la.

Wired on emotions,
They don't understand,
But we know better,
I know the way the preachers pray,
And who the angels save,
And where the devil plays.

La la la la la.

Wired on emotions,
They don't understand,
But we know better,
High from motions and we pave the way,
And we know where we want to go,
We know better.

Four hands making plans,
Making signs, conversation,
Two minds lost in time,
Yours and mine.

Wired on emotions,
They don't understand,
But we know better,
High from motions and we pave the way,
And we know where we want to go,
We know better.

I don't belong here

Stealing words along the silent smiles,
Sleepy town held me down,
waved good-bye,
World unfolds, seashore swirl,
horizon's the same,
Destiny breeds a life of isolation,
Give to me the bitter flesh of inspiration,
Watch me future seed a gift from god.

I don't belong here,
I don't belong here,
What I've said and done build a world in my arms.

Lay down your guns,
Lay down your sky,
We are dreamers, dreamers a nightmare apart.

I don't belong here,
I don't belong here,
I don't belong here,
I don't belong,
What I've said and done build a world of my own.

Bunty

Lost my ticket at the gate,
And now l'm cross and now I'm late,
The station has a lengthy cue,
And you said I could be with you,
But will you still be waiting,
When I finally get to,
Where you're waiting to.

Met you at the old school gate,
Where you were hanging with your mates,
You flicked your fingers through your hair,
It was chilly for that time of year,
My head went spinning into space,
Just like you'd smacked me in the face.

When I got there in the end,
I caught you srogging with my friend,
What if she's pretty, if she is smart,
I saw you first you broke my heart,
And life's not fair and it's so cruel,
'Cos you said I could be with you.

Now I don't think you're good enough,
And after school I'll beat you up.

Centipede

You're a centipede crawling down my spine,
You're the evil world of the nursery rhyme,
You're the drug in which I fly.

Drag me under,
Douse the tracks,
Dressed in anger,
Hit back, hit back, hit back.

You're an open wound that was left to bleed,
You're my only friend,
Don't be cruel to me,
I smash the looking glass against my head,
Let my senses burn as my body bled,
We are immigrants in a fractured time,
Found the pieces of a life that's mine,
You're all I fear that I might find.

Drag me under,
Douse the track,
Dressed in anger,
Hit back, hit back, hit back,
Oh, oh, oh, oh.

You're an animal in an open cage,
You're an orchestra in a manic phase,
You're the dream in which I die.

Drag me under,
Douse the track,
Dressed in anger,
Hit back, hit back, hit back.

Drag me under,
Douse the track,
Dressed in anger,
Hit back, hit back, hit back,
Hit back, hit back, hit back.

Fake

My love don't despair,
There's no other could compare,
Only lust can come between us,
And I know you wouldn't dare.

Oh, oh yes I know, oh,
Ah ha there's no other,
Only only you can do it better,
Only only you can do it better,
Only you.

My love you're not there,
They're betrayal in the air,
You're a cheater you're a liar,
Smell the perfume in your hair.

Oh heaven knows oh,
Ah ha here's the other,
Only only you can do it better,
Only only you can do it better,
Only you.

Only fools do it better,
We leave the fakes behind,
Only fools do it better,
We leave the fakes behind,
Only only you can do it better,
Only only you can do it better,
Only you, you.

God's guest list

Come slip inside,
Take a chair,
The final performance is almost here,
So it's time to go, l'll close the show,
The death of an actor who no one knows.

Now that the show is over,
Will I belong to you,
Now that the show is over,
Will I be, will I be, will I be,
On God's guest list.

The worm inside, the worm inside,
Culled from a lifetime of standing by,
Oh I followed all the golden rules,
Head lined a season of solitude,
On the back of a broken dream,
They cashed another money machine,
You took your chance, you showed your skill,
You really didn't know any better,
You gave a little hope, you stole a little something,
You really didn't know any better.

Now that the show is over,
Will I belong to you,
Now that the show is over,
Will I be, will I be, will I be,
On God's guest list,
Moving on.

Sleeping Hitler

I deny feeling inside for a long time,
and now I realize there are part of everyone,
like a sleeping hitler,
There's strength of destruction,
I thought part of me,
when pain is the opium.

But it's much too late to be judged,
How I wish I was blindly,
I wish I was blindly,
I wish I was blindly,
blindly loved.

For desire,
carry the cross of obsession,
a tumbling of launch,
I naturally poisoned,
I'm a sleepig hitler,
No better than anyone,
I've learned to be civilized,
and that is the difference.

But it's much too late to be judged,
how I wish I was blindly,
I wish I was blindly,
I wish I was blindly,
I wish I was blindly,
Wish I was blindly,
I wish I was.

I know who you are,
I'll tell you something,
I know what you are,
I know because you showed me,
I was really out there,
Oh yes you showed me,
I was really out there.

But it's much too late to be judged, anymore,
I wish I was blindly,
I wish I was blindly,
I wish I was blindly,
Wish I was blindly,
I wish I was,
Wish I was blindly,
Wish I was blindly,
blindly loved,
blindly loved,
blindly loved,
I wish I was blindly loved.

Aloha lolita

They lie on the sofa,
He's got his hand inside her dress,
He says he adores her,
The word is she's crazy,
She likes the taste between her legs,
They say she's a goer,
The truth is it bores her,
She's bored, she's bored beyond belief,
There's nothing to do here,
She's been there,
She's done it,
She's seen it all,
It's taken place inside her head,
When no one can go there,
She's saving up for something,
She says she's up for sale.

Running in the shadows,
From the voices and the pain,
Nothing in the world is gonna save you,
Standing on the corner,
On the sidewalk,
On the game,
I can't ever reach you.

Aloha lolita I've got to have you, have you,
He wrote in his letter,
Another admirer who had his way, a way with words,
He sleeps with her picture,
She's saving up for something,
She says she's up for sale.

Running in the shadows,
From the voices and the pain,
Nothing in the world is gonna save you,
Standing on the corner,
On the sidewalk,
On the game,
I can't ever reach you,
Where would you go now?,
If I could take you with me,
Run from this world and find another,
Come run another with me.


On turn on

Boy I wanna know, you like a brother,
Boy I want the hole in you as well,
Boy you know you move, you're like no other,
Saving all that sweet ass for myself.

And it goes on and on, on and on,
All because of you,
And the reason's no reason,
It's in your lips, your legs, your body.

Boy you've got the source, you've got the answers,
Boy I wonder best who was well,
And it goes on and on, on and on,
All because of you,
And the reason's no reason,
It's in your shoes, your moves, your body.

All I want is all I see,
All I see is all I need,
All I need is all I have,
All I have is nothing.

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo,
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo.

Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo,
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo.

And it goes on and on, on and on,
All because of you,
And the reason's no reason,
It's in your lips,
Your lips,
Your legs,
Your shoes,
Your moves,
Your arse,
Your suss,
Your body.

Here comes the scene

It's the time of the scene,
They radiate a different heat,
Till the last big flame is stamped upon,
Along comes another, along comes another.

All stand up now, here comes the scene,
All stand up now, here comes the scene.

It's the turn of the clowns,
Let's build it up and knock it back down,
We could tear it up and start it all over,
Let's prey upon another,
Let's pray upon another.

All stand up now, here comes the scene,
All stand up now, here comes the scene,
All take a bow,here comes the Queen,
All stand up now, here comes the scene.

Sober

Once in a while,
I'll be the figure on the sleeve, on the sleeve,
Is there anyone who understands me?,
Oh anyone anyone anyone more than you,
I've played blind men's games for a vision,
Just to see, just to see, just to see how low,
Would you like to see how low I go?,
Won't you see how low I go?.

Now that it's over I'm left on the floor,
Cold and I'm sober,
It is worse than before,
And I hate that I want you,
How could I know,
I still love.

Once in a while,
I'll be the joker on the scene, on the scene,
Is there anyone who cares to listen?,
Kill the tormentor in my dream,
We're out in the big wide world for a mission,
So why do I feel inside, empty and so small,
And I called to say,
Hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello.

Now that it's over I'm left on the floor,
Cold and I'm sober,
It is worse than before,
And I hate that I want you,
How could I know,
I still love.

Why do I, who do I, why do I love you?.

So la di da

Now if my eyes don't show you,
Cause they're fueled with fire,
And my pride, it builds a barrier,
As the flames are growing high,
And the future is a fugitive,
To my everyday desires,
And all I want is everything,
And more,
La di da di da di da di da da,
I'm so la di da.

I close my eyes,
I shut my mouth,
I close my eyes,
I shut my mouth,
La di da di da da da,
La di da di da da da da.

Now if your charms don't hold me.

Your presence, it won't posses me,
You try so hard to tame me,
Control the one's we love,
Don't compare me to the others,
Your oh so perfect lovers,
They're so civilized civilized civilized,
They are morons,
La di da di da di da di da,
I'm so la di da.

I close my eyes,
I shut my mouth,
I close my eyes,
I shut my mouth,
I close my eyes,
I shut my mouth,
I close my eyes,
I shut my mouth,
La di da di da da da,
La di da di da da da da.

La da la da la da...

I am the boldest,
I am the boldest don't you know,
I am the boldest,
I am the boldest of them all,
I am the boldest don't you know,
Don't you know.

Now if my eyes don't show you,
Cause they're fueled with fire,
And my pride, it builds a barrier,
As the flames grow,
La di da di da di da di da da,
I'm so la di da.

I close my eyes,
I shut my mouth.

Talent

See that boy,
He's got the song of the century,
He's got the face that was meant to be,
On the covers of lavishing height.

Watch that girl,
Moves like the vamp on the disco floor,
Curses the crap that has gone before,
Makes me happy,
Not very bright.

Any offers? Any offers? Any resale?,
Any offers? Any offers? Any resale?,
Any of none.

New turn,
Talent is all that we understand,
Gullible suits have the upper hand,
Are we laughing?,
Not very hard,
Sell your soul,
To papers I painted cold hand low,
Lied about crack in the pubs and so,
Are we crying?,
It's ever so sad.

Any offers? Any offers? Any resale?,
Any offers? Any offers? Any resale?,
Any offers? Any offers? Any resale?,
Any of none.


Venus wheel

When the city comes alive,
When the debonaire are like fire-flies,
See the social satire lives,
See them dance on their beauty at the wheel,
Wonder how it feels,
Wonder how it feels to be you.

Oh little venus,
Dressed up to tease us,
Locked in the room upstairs,
She's combing her hair,
Oh little venus,
Smells of the sweetest,
Dreams of his thunder thighs coming around,
Oh, oh.

In the honey-coated atmosphere,
Now it's new thighs, glam rides latest to gold,
With your hair and the sherbet dip that you taste,
Makes her lost in space,
Beauty at the wheel,
Wonder how it feels,
Wonder how it feels to be you.

Oh little venus,
Dressed up to tease us,
Locked in the room upstairs,
She's combing her hair,
Oh little venus,
Smells of the sweetest,
Dreams of his thunder thighs coming around.

Oh little venus,
Little little little little little venus,
Don't you know little venus,
Don't you know,
Don't you know.

Oh little venus,
Dressed up to tease us,
Locked in the room upstairs,
She's combing her hair,
Oh little venus,
Smells of the sweetest,
Dreams of his thunder thighs coming around.

Oh little venus,
Sweet little venus,
Dreams of his thunder thighs coming around.

Holding the wire

My very ordinary sanguinary thoughts
Make you feel insecure
I don't care any more
Did my opinions kill your reputation
Ripped your elegant plans
That's the way that i am
Darling, your lonely nights
Have turned into lonely days

I just wanna know
Are you scared of the real thing
Are you searching for sympathy
Walking a wire on your own

Running round in syharitic circles
But the ghosts in your path
They were there from the start
Wrapped around your need to feed your ego
Lost yourself in the race
And the hunger remains
Darling, your lonely nights
Have turned into lonely days

I just wanna know
Are you scared of the real thing
Are you searching for sympathy
Walking a wire on your own

You want it (you got it) X2
You want it (you take it)
Then you're sorry
You do it all again tomorrow
No one cares and no one follows

You want it (you got it) X2
You want it (you take it)
Then you're sorry
Swallowing the same excuses
Falling in the same holes
Darling, your lonely nights
Have turned into lonely days

I just wanna know
Are you scared of the real thing
Are you searching for sympathy
Walking a wire on your own
i just wanna know
Are you waiting for something
When your world is in darkness
When you're alone

Drive myself distracted

Like an ordinary, like an ordinary thought
That drifts into a naked eye
How extraordinary, things are happening
Can't stop myself, i'm sinking into broken ice
I've a head that burns
Can I hold my head up

There's a storm around me
Love its violence, a fever rush
A push, a shove inside
Do I wanna do what i do
I wanna loosen the noose
And take a tumble as i roll the dice
I've a head that burns
And I hold my head up high, because i can

And if I drive myself distracted
That is just the way i am
If it pleases me to waste may time
Then try to understand
If I lose myself in what I do
That's just because I can
Like a tidal wave, i'm coming close
To knowing what I am

Are you turning corners, are you coming closer
Close enough to take you for a ride
Do you ever do what you fear
You ever lived for the thrill
Enough to fill you up inside
I've a head that burns
And I hold my head up high, bacause i can

And if I drive myself distracted
That is just the way i am
If it pleases me to waste may time
Then try to understand
If I lose myself in what I do
That's just because I can
Like a tidal wave, i'm coming close
To knowing what I am

Falling flame

As the rain pours down
Washes out my thoughts of you
And the hurling sound
It's wallows up your name
Iconoclast, the hidden past you left before you came
You charmed my darkest hour
It's close again and things are not the same

I remember you, you're the one who came
Crawling from the past, like a falling flame

Did you hold it down, or give yourself away
Did you hold it back, or open up the gates
To call a flood to sweep it up
Or drown it in the rain

I remember you, you're the one who came
Falling from the past, like a falling flame

I never chose to be this way, to be alone
There never was another choice, there never was

As the rain pours down
Washes out my thoughts of you
And the hurling sound
It's wallows up your name

I remember you, you're the one who came
Falling from the past, like a falling flame

I remember you, i remember you
Like a falling flame,like a falling flame
I remember you, I remember you...

I am awake

I’m the word nobody will say
I’m the wretch nobody can save
I’m the wild untouchable space
I’m the scream that cuts through this silence

It’s funny then, that i can hear symphonies

I am awake
I am wide awake
Now that i know
I won’t be lost again

I’m the core of the chaos you crave
I’m the flame that burns through your name

It’s cold outside, i am on fire again

I am awake
I am wide awake
Now that i know
I won’t be lost again

When i see red

Was it all vertical lines, only and ever known
Courting the horizon, sunbound,
Moored on a long road
When i see red i don’t know what it means

But I’ve done the time
So give it to me now, time on my mind
I’ve been living my life
Life
Here in my mind

More than less, more than i know
Ageless and ever near
I’m lining up layers, undiscovered
Feels like a rush to me, the kind i need
I don’t know why i don’t spit it out like i used to

Cos I’ve done the time
So give it to me now, time on my mind
I’ve been living my life
Life
Here in my mind
