Wrap me up in the back of the trunk, packed with foam...
I work, I bleed, I beg, I pray... but I'm better off dead...
I am open, I am welcome for a fraction of a second...
There are better things to talk about - be constructive...
So I declare a holiday, fall aslep, drift away
The pointless, snide remarks of hammerheaded sharks...
Come on if you think you can take us on...
You've got a head full of feathers...
Just lying in a bar with my drip feeds on...
It's like the world is gonna end so soon...
Take a lesson from me, don't get stuck on a dream...
I need warmth - a restless body cracks some more...
He was a stupid baby who turned into a powerful freak...
It's the best thing that you've ever, ever had...
Why so green and lonely, and lonely? Heaven sent you to me...
I know I should not look down, but I'm so sick of just talking...
It's just business - cattle prods and the IMF...
A pale imitation, with the edges sawn off...
I swat 'em like flies, but, like flies, the buggers keep coming back...
Won't let the creeping ivy, won't let the nervous bury me...
I used to think there was no future left at all...
My thoughts are misguided and a little naïve...
Was always waiting for the crush, the car to drive right through the shops...
I was stronger, I was better...
I spit on the hand that feeds me - I will not control myself!
Did the cat get your tongue? Did your string come undone?
I must get out once in a while, everything's starting to die...
Open your mouth wide, the universal sigh...
The raindrops, the raindrops, the raindrops...
You paint yourself white, and fill up with noise...
Radio has salmonella, and now you know you're gonna die...
I'll be waiting with a gun and a pack of sandwiches...
Don't forget that you are our son, now go back to bed...
Know right from wrong, or in the flood, you'll build an ark...
There was nothing to fear, nothing to doubt...
Spare the gory details...
The emptiest of feelings, disappointed people clinging onto bottles...
You feed me to the lions, a delicate balance...
And everything I touch turns to stone...
Murderers, you're murderers - we are not the same as you!

I slipped away, I slipped on a little white lie...
She knows if you die, then we all do...
I won't let this happen to my children...
Be a world child, form a circle before we all go under...
They ask me where the hell I'm going at a thousand feet per second...
Wax me, mould me, heat the pins and stab them in...
Because we separate like ripples on a blank shore...
I used to fly like Peter Pan...
Who bribed the company to come and see you, honey?
Distracted by irrelevance, the stress and the tension
Appliances have gone berserk, I cannot keep up...
'Cause all I want is the moon upon a stick...
I get on the train and I just stand about...
This is the place - sit down, you're safe now...
There are two colours in my head - what was that you tried to say?
Her Hitler hairdo is making me feel ill...
I am hungry again, I am drunk again...
Where'd you park the car? Where'd you park the car?
In the deep, deep sleep of the innocent, I am born again...
When the power runs out, we'll just hum...
She is papering the window panes, she is putting on a smile...
I'm lost at sea, don't bother me, I've lost my way...
Gather up the lost and sold in your arms...
Rules and schedule - a job that kills you...
Something big is gonna happen - over my dead body!
He used to do surgery for girls in the eighties...
Interstate 5 runs straight down the middle...
Give your leaders each a gun and then let them fight it out themselves...
Red wine and sleeping pills - help me get back to your arms...
Bastard headmaster! I am not going back...
Whatever makes you happy; whatever you want...
Sing us a song, a song to keep us warm - there's such a chill...
X'll mark the place like the parting of the waves...
As the tanks roll into town, a little bit of knowledge will destroy you...
Every woman blows her cover in the eye of the beholder...
I'll take a quiet life, a handshake of carbon monoxide...
I live in a town where you can't smell a thing...
She'd love to come help, but the sea would electrocute us all...
Nervous, messed-up marionette, flying along on a prison ship...
Slide your hand, jump off the end - the water's clear and innocent...

I tumble like a clown before your baying hounds...
Comes like a comet, suckered you but not your friends...
But now I can see that there's a way out...
You're either in the club, baby, or you're not...
One minute snake-charming, the next in a motorcade...
Now you've stolen all the magic, and took my melody...
I feel better, I feel better now there's nothing wrong...
Everyone is so near, everyone has got the fear...
This is my way of saying goodbye, 'cause I can't do it face to face...
This is just a nightmare, soon I'm gonna wake up...
Kill me, Sarah, kill me again - with love...
Tugging at my arms and legs like I was a marionette...
I'm an animal trapped in your hot car...
Yesterday's headlines blown by the wind...
I shall now perform a 180 flip-flop...
I'd be crazy not to follow, follow where you lead...
All evidence has been buried, all tapes have been erased...
Throw your keys in the bowl, kiss your husband goodnight...
You can kiss it, you can break all the rules...
When I am king, you will be first against the wall..
A beautiful girl can turn your world into dust...
In a city of the future, it is difficult to concentrate...
I am trapped in the society pages of your magazines...
I walk through walls, I float down the Liffey...
The smell of fear is thicker than you think...
You eye each other as you pass - she looks back and you look back...
Your tiny hands, your crazy kitten smile...
With my X-Ray eyes I strip you naked in a tight little world...
A good memory; still cries at a good film, still kisses with saliva...
Lock the kids in safe tonight, and shut the eyes in the cupboard...
And there's nothing to say, and there's nothing to do...
If you give up on me now, I'd be gutted like I've never been before...
We're not scaremongering, this is really happening!
It must be hard, hard with your head on backwards...
Escaped from the zoo, the perfect child facsimile...
There are doors that let you in and out but never open...
Here we are, without running and confusion...
As your life flashed before your eyes, you realised...
The answer to your prayers - we'll drop you anywhere...
If you'd been a dog, they would've drowned you at birth...
