two more years


in two more years, my sweetheart
we will see another view
such longing for the past for such completion
what was once golden has now turned a shade of grey
i've become crueler in your presence

they say: "be brave, there's a right way and a wrong way"
this pain won't last for ever, this pain won't last for ever

two more years, there's only two more years
two more years so hold on

you've cried enough this lifetime, my beloved polar bear
tears to fill a sea to drown a beacon
to start anew all over, remove those scars from your arms
to start anew all over more enlightened

i know, my love, this is not the only story you can tell
this pain won't last for ever, this pain won't last for ever

two more years...

you don't need to find answers for questions never asked of you
you don't need to find answers

dead weights, balloons
drag me to you
dead weights, balloons
to sleep in your arms

i've become crueler since i met you
i've become rougher, this world is killing me

and we cover our lies with handshakes and smiles
and we try to remember our alibis
we tell lies to our parents, we hide in their rooms
we bury our secrets in the garden
of course we could never make this love last
i said of course we could never make this love last
the only love we know is love for ourselves
we bury our secrets in the garden

helicopter



north to south
empty
running on
bravado
as if to say, as if to say
he doesn't like chocolate
he's born a liar, he'll die a liar
some things will never be different

stop being so american
there's a time and there's a place
so james dean
so blue jeans
gonna save the world
he's gonna

are you hoping for a miracle?

three out of five, three out of five (it's not enough)
six out of ten
better luck next time
just like his dad, just like his dad (the same mistakes)
some things will never be different
hungry and dumb, hungry and dumb (so wait in line)
queuing up for some more junk food
it's not my fault, it's not my fault (just this once)
they're getting so much younger

why can't you be more european
bastard child of guilt and shame
bury your head in the sand
i'm thinking six, six, six
i'm thinking six

are you hoping for a miracle?

skeleton



all my thoughts are all lies
all my thoughts are all lies
all my bones are so tired
all my bones are so tired
so young and so handsome
so easily led
they told me to wait
i said

it makes a man out of me
you take the fun out of me

and i've been consistent to the fucking dream
and i've paid my dues
just to get them all back
a simple man with simple desire

what should i have said?
what should i have done?
the horses are here
the damage is done
so just take off your shirt
and just take off your dress
we can go dancing
on a saturday

it makes a man out of me
you take the fun out of me

and i've been consistent...

i'm just a skeleton

and i've been consistent...

i'm just a skeleton

banquet



a heart of stone, a smoking gun
i can give you life, i can take it away
a heart of stone, a smoking gun
i'm working it out, i'm workin'ooooo
so underrated
why'd you feel so negated?
haha
turning away from the light
becoming adult
turning into my soul
i wanted to bite not destroy
to feel her underneath
turning into the light
she don't think straight
no, no, no, she don't think straight
she's got such a dirty mind and it never ever stops
and you don't taste like her and you never ever will
and we don't read the papers, we don't read the news
heaven's never enough, we will never be fooled
turning away from the light
becoming adult
turning into my soul
i wanted to bite not destroy
to feel her underneath
turning into the light
and if you feel a little left behind
we will wait you on the other side
cos i'm on fire
cos you know i'm on fire when you come
cos you know i'm on fire
cos you know i'm on fire so stub me out.
cos i'm on fire

tulips



when you said tulips
i knew that you're mine
when i caught you there
crying in the night
wearing my jacket
wearing that smile
i knew that i'd found you

this could be an opportunity

were you unawares
did it catch you out?
or did it break you in
right from the start
it's as pure as fire
it's as pure as snow
i knew that i'd found you

this could be an opportunity
if you promise to let it grow

'cause you're the one i love

so here we are



i caught a glimpse, but its been forgotten
so here we are again

i made a vow, to carry you home... home

i really tried to do what you wanted
it all went wrong again

i made a vow, to carry you home
if you fall sick, if you pass out

i figured it out, i can see again

hero



another bad day, waste of promise
are we really getting near?
kick off your work shoes, rest a little
there's nothing for you to prove

is it funny or is it sad?
we leave and enter on our own
is it funny or is it sad?
we never really know anyone

i'm telling you my only secret
i'm so lonely, she said
i'm waiting for a hero to save the day
a heaviness so relentless
an emptiness so monumental
i'm waiting for a hero to save the day

across the sea i can hear you're tired
what is there left to see?

a smash of keyboard into their faces
a silence so satisfying
i can understand why you left your home
i can understand

i'm telling you...

'cause we're twenty, twenty, twenty-two
bleeding stars, stars and happy thoughts
'cause we're twenty, twenty, twenty-two
waiting for the rain, the rain to stop

'cause i'm a boy and you're a girl
and what else is there in this world?
i can make you smile, i can make you laugh
what else is there in this world?

so take my hand and marry me
i'll make your branches sprout a-green
i can make you smile, i can make you laugh
what else is there in this world?

and if you take my hand
i'll lead you to the promised land
just call in sick
our time is now
i've got so much love to give
a vessel to receive it
take the day off work
our time is now, our time is now

compliments



we sit and we sigh
and nothing gets done
so right, so clued-up
we just get old

and all the while
been torn asunder

nicotine
and bacteria

what are we coming to

plans



wake up dreamer
it's happening without you
cut your hair and shave your beard
you squandered your chances
i'll give you a thousand pounds
to show me how you do it
stop being so laissez-faire
we're all scared of the future

been training vipers to come for you
in your dreams to release you
been training vipers to come for you
in your sleep
and the ravens are leaving the tower
and the ravens are leaving the tower
make your peace

i've got a taste for blood
leave the weak, leave the young
i've got a taste for blood
i'm walking out without you
you will kill or be killed
it's about progress
i've got a taste for blood

wake up sleepyhead
it's happening without you
such a nice guy
you tell me everything twice
whipcrack speed jump
we will run backwards
stop being so laissez-faire
we're all scared of the future

we make plans for big times
get bogged down, distracted
we make plans for good times
all neon, all surface
so kiss me before it all gets complicated

luno



and you're tired of your mum
and you're tired of your dad
got you jumping through hoops
got you shaving your legs
let it pass, let it pass, let it pass over you

and you're tired of your face
and you're tired of your nose
got you jumping through hoops
got you shaving your legs
let it pass, let it pass, let it pass through you

and your nose is bleeding
you've been lying to me

there will be no hesitation
there will be no confrontation
there will be no indication
there will be no cause
there will be no exultation
there will be no justification
there will be no way at all

and your nose is bleeding
you've been lying to me

luno
come back to me the the way you were
the way you were when we were young
i'm trying to tell you everything
i'm trying to tell you everything

i can heal the blind
i can cure the sick
i can say the right things
i can say the right things
where d'you get so cruel
where do you go
cos you're never here

and your nose is bleeding
you've been lying to me

and your nose is bleeding
you've been lying to me

luno
come back to me the the way you were
the way you were when we were young
i'm trying to tell you everything
i'm trying to tell you everything

price of gasoline



i've been driving, a mid sized car
i never hurt anyone
is that a fact?
the price of gas keeps on rising
nothing comes for free
make like a stone, make like a plant
i can tell you, how this ends

we're going to win this
with spades and truncheons, guns and trowels
that is how the war will be won
just swat the fly
taking care of cars and bodies
nothing ever comes for free
the ghosts are here, red white and blue

i can tell you how this ends

the pioneers



if it can be broke then it can be fixed
if it can be fused then it can be split
it's all under control
if it can be lost then it can be won
if it can be touched then it can be turned
all you need is time

we promised the world we'd tame it
what were we hoping for?

a sense of purpose and a sense of skill
a sense of function but a disregard
we will not be the first, we won't
you said you were going to conquer new frontiers,
go stick your bloody head in the jaws of the beast

we promised the world, we'd tame it
what were we hoping for?

breath in, breath out

so here we are reinventing the wheel
i'm shaking hands with a hurricane
it's a colour that i can't describe,
it's a language i can't understand
ambition, tearing out the heart of you
carving lines into you
dripping down the sides of you

we will not be the last

this modern love



to be lost in the forest, to be cut adrift
you've been trying to reach me, you bought me a book
to be lost in the forest, to be cut adrift
i've been paid, i've been paid

to be lost in the forest, to be cut adrift
you've been trying to reach me, you bought me a book
to be lost in the forest, to be cut adrift
i've been paid, i've been wait, i've been...

don't get offended, if i seem absent minded
just keep telling me facts, and keep making me smile at
and don't get offended, if i seem absent minded
i get tongue-tied

baby, you've got to, be more discerning
i've never known, what's good for me
baby, you've got, to be more demanding
i will be yours

i'll pay for you, anytime
i'll pay for you, anytime

and you told me you wanted, to eat up my sadness
well jump on, enjoy, you can gorge away
you told me you wanted, to eat up my sadness
jump right

baby, you've got to be more discerning
i've known never known what's good for me
and baby, you've got to be more demanding
jump left

what are you holding out for?
what's always (in the way)?
why so damn absent-minded?
why so scared (of romance)?

ah, ah, ah, ah
this modern love (ah, ah, ah), breaks me
ah, ah, ah, ah
this modern love (ah, ah, ah), wastes me
ah, ah, ah, ah
this modern love (ah, ah, ah), breaks me
ah, ah, ah, ah
this modern love (ah, ah, ah), wastes me

do you wanna come over, and kill some time?
do you wanna come over, and kill some time?
do you wanna come over, and kill some time?
throw your arms around me

blue light



you'll find it hiding in shadows
you'll find it hiding in cupboards
it will walk you home safe every night
it will help you remember

if that's way it is
then that's the way it is

i still feel you and the taste of cigarettes
what could i ever run to
just tell me it's tearing you apart
just tell me you cannot sleep

if that's way it is
then that's the way it is

and you didn't even notice
when the sky turned blue
and you couldn't tell the difference
between me and you
and i nearly didn't notice
the gentlest feeling

you are the bluest light
you are the bluest light

positive tension



he said you're just as boring as everyone else
when you tut and you moan
and you squeal and you squelch
he said that you're just as boring as everyone else
nothing ever happens

things replace things
days replace days
things replace things

she said i'm going use my teeth and my claws
she said i'm going use my teeth and my claws
she said i'm going use my teeth and my breasts
i'm gonna make it happen
she said

run run run run run run
and you cannot run or ever, ever escape
you cannot run or ever hide it away
something glorious is about to happen
the reckoning

they go you're just as boring as everyone else
when you tut and you moan
and you squeal and you squelch
they go you're just as boring as everyone else
stuck past timing
the fear and the yearning
the fear and the consumption
the fear and the yearning
it's gonna eat you alive
they go...

and you cannot hide or ever, ever escape
and you cannot hide or ever put it away
something glorious is about to happen
the reckoning

they go...
they say...
they go...
they say...
they go...
why'd you have to get so hysterical?
success, success, success is over
why'd you have to get
so fucking useless

play it cool boy

like eating glass



it's so cold in this house
open mouth swallowing us
the children sent home from school
will not stop crying

and i know that you're busy too
i know that you care
you got your finger on the pulse
you got your eyes everywhere
and it hurts all the time when you don't return my calls
and you haven't got the time to remember how it was
it's so cold in this house
it's so cold in this house

i can't eat, i can't sleep
i can't sleep, i can't dream
an aversion to light
got a fear of the ocean

like drinking poison, like eating glass

it's so cold in this house
come and show me how it was

we've got crosses on our eyes
been walking into the walls again
we've got crosses on our eyes
been walking into the furniture
we've got crosses on our eyes
for richer, for poorer, for better, for worse
we've got crosses on our eyes

always new depths

all the clouds are black
mother is cried out
someone else broke my fall
i don't remember
internationally bastardised
internationally tongue-tied
the truth is i'm not sorry
it's bigger than the both of us
a pillar of salt, a box of want
you were pulled out of the embers
it was never my intention
all the clouds are black
mother is cried out

summertime has come and gone
all used up with wishful thinking
get sussed out, get cynical
in this world there are no second chances

if you want lies i can tell them
if you want lies i got 'em
all the pennies in the thames
will not make it how it was

summertime has come and gone
all used up with wishful thinking
get sussed out, get cynical
in this world there are no second chances

crawling around on all fours
you got to curl yourself into a circle
i will tear myself apart
if you promise to paint me
as a work of art

as a work of art

your my work of art

oh wait she did
(fades) always new depths not oh wait she did

this is not a competition



this is not a competition
you will see when i am gone
can't you see that i am trying?
love fifteen; fifteen all
i made a vow to carry you home
if you fall sick, if you pass out
i made a vow to rescue you
if you're in trouble, if you flake out

if you need to ask
i ache because you ache

what was it you could not tell me?
why are there cuts on your arm?
what is it you run away from?
why have all the clocks stopped?

the answer

feeding the five thousand was not done with prayers alone
it takes blood and guts and it takes devotion
so tired of standing up and so tired of drawing breath
it's your turn to take the map and it's your turn to drop the soap

pretty pretty boys sucking on a cola
money to burn, money to burn, money to burn
we got rules to protect us
isaac and ishmael
the magazine says it's okay
life as a billboard

if you are the answer
we are going straight hell

grown in a parental fugue
weight loss in self respect
bomb, bomb, bomb us back together

the marshalls are dead

attention!
unbelievers
fashion victims
opportunists
blood sport
cop killer
don't trust art
don't trust culture

cancel your thoughts out forever
milk it and strain it to residue
an insult that dilates forever
passing from history that's made from arrangements
of cordons and tannoys in symmetry
that cancel forever

forever

spring breaks in ranks and in boulevards
a country that grows us
but cannot contain us

a curse on your houses
rivers run with your sons' blood
no case for extenuation
all the marshals are dead

staying fat

i rely on (bitter cold)
i depend on (arctic snow)
a pair of trainers (i've got mine)
could make a god of the two of us (i want yours)

i exist on (apropos)
i insist on (arctic snow)
a change of clothing (will fill the void)
could lift us into fidelity (will suck you in)

the sound keeps you hemmed to the past
the walls are coming in again
the streets grid alone from the door
you gotta spin the fucking treadle...

i rely on (bitter cold)
i depend on (arctic snow)
the manmade fibres (i've got mine)
that are the stuff of my birthright (i want yours)

i decide on (apropos)
i retreat from (arctic snow)
the dregs of discourse (will fill the void)
for a new world order (will suck you in)

the sound keeps you hemmed to the past
the walls are coming in again
the streets grid alone from the door
you gotta spin the fucking treadle...
in a pile of days between no oceans
all the kids are rioting
there's no art in a broken head
all the kids are staying fat

and i'm air-kissing, back-slapping
check the body for valuables
it's called progress
come on pilgrim sing to the pyres
it's called progress
if they want to kill themselves
then buy them the gowns
it's called progress
