X'll mark the place like the parting of the waves...
I walk through walls, I float down the Liffey...
He was a stupid baby who turned into a powerful freak...
Because we separate like ripples on a blank shore...
Nervous, messed-up marionette, flying along on a prison ship...
When the power runs out, we'll just hum...
The raindrops, the raindrops, the raindrops...
The smell of fear is thicker than you think...
In a city of the future, it is difficult to concentrate...
Sing us a song, a song to keep us warm - there's such a chill...
Lock the kids in safe tonight, and shut the eyes in the cupboard...
He used to do surgery for girls in the eighties...
Take a lesson from me, don't get stuck on a dream...
I'll take a quiet life, a handshake of carbon monoxide...
So I declare a holiday, fall aslep, drift away
A beautiful girl can turn your world into dust...
Don't forget that you are our son, now go back to bed...
Gather up the lost and sold in your arms...
With my X-Ray eyes I strip you naked in a tight little world...
Who bribed the company to come and see you, honey?
Know right from wrong, or in the flood, you'll build an ark...
I work, I bleed, I beg, I pray... but I'm better off dead...
And everything I touch turns to stone...
Slide your hand, jump off the end - the water's clear and innocent...
Where'd you park the car? Where'd you park the car?
Throw your keys in the bowl, kiss your husband goodnight...
I used to think there was no future left at all...
I get on the train and I just stand about...
Comes like a comet, suckered you but not your friends...
I tumble like a clown before your baying hounds...
Something big is gonna happen - over my dead body!
In the deep, deep sleep of the innocent, I am born again...
Murderers, you're murderers - we are not the same as you!
I am trapped in the society pages of your magazines...
Appliances have gone berserk, I cannot keep up...
Distracted by irrelevance, the stress and the tension
Red wine and sleeping pills - help me get back to your arms...
Just lying in a bar with my drip feeds on...
I shall now perform a 180 flip-flop...
I am hungry again, I am drunk again...

YOU HAVE NOT BEEN PAYING ATTENTION
They ask me where the hell I'm going at a thousand feet per second...
Bastard headmaster! I am not going back...
Wrap me up in the back of the trunk, packed with foam...
Routines and schedules - a job that kills you...
Won't let the creeping ivy, won't let the nervous bury me...
The answer to your prayers - we'll drop you anywhere...
I know I should not look down, but I'm so sick of just talking...
The pointless, snide remarks of hammerheaded sharks...
As your life flashed before your eyes, you realised...
Your tiny hands, your crazy kitten smile...
There was nothing to fear, nothing to doubt...
Radio has salmonella, and now you know you're gonna die...
We're not scaremongering, this is really happening!
A pale imitation, with the edges sawn off...
Whatever makes you happy; whatever you want...
And there's nothing to say, and there's nothing to do...
There are better things to talk about - be constructive...
You paint yourself white, and fill up with noise...
You've got a head full of feathers...
Was always waiting for the crush, the car to drive right through the shops...
If you give up on me now, I'd be gutted like I've never been before...
'Cause all I want is the moon upon a stick...
If you'd been a dog, they would've drowned you at birth...
Wax me, mould me, heat the pins and stab them in...
She is papering the window panes, she is putting on a smile...
Come on if you think you can take us on...
I am open, I am welcome for a fraction of a second...
Her Hitler hairdo is making me feel ill...
My thoughts are misguided and a little naïve...
Kill me, Sarah, kill me again - with love...
It's just business - cattle prods and the IMF...
This is my way of saying goodbye, 'cause I can't do it face to face...
Spare the gory details...
I must get out once in a while, everything's starting to die...
The emptiest of feelings, disappointed people clinging onto bottles...
This is the place - sit down, you're safe now...
She'd love to come help, but the sea would electrocute us all...
But now I can see that there's a way out...
I'm lost at sea, don't bother me, I've lost my way...

I live in a town where you can't smell a thing...
You're either in the club, baby, or you're not...
As the tanks roll into town, a little bit of knowledge will destroy you...
There are doors that let you in and out but never open...
Why so green and lonely, and lonely? Heaven sent you to me...
I spit on the hand that feeds me - I will not control myself!
I need warmth - a restless body cracks some more...
I used to fly like Peter Pan...
Did the cat get your tongue? Did your string come undone?
Everyone is so near, everyone has got the fear...
Tugging at my arms and legs like I was a marionette...
A good memory; still cries at a good film, still kisses with saliva...
Open your mouth wide, the universal sigh...
I'm an animal trapped in your hot car...
Here we are, without running and confusion...
This is just a nightmare, soon I'm gonna wake up...
I slipped away, I slipped on a little white lie...
You eye each other as you pass - she looks back and you look back...
Every woman blows her cover in the eye of the beholder...
She knows if you die, then we all do...
I'd be crazy not to follow, follow where you lead...
Now you've stolen all the magic, and took my melody...
I feel better, I feel better now there's nothing wrong...
It must be hard, hard with your head on backwards...
Give your leaders each a gun and then let them fight it out themselves...
You can kiss it, you can break all the rules...
Interstate 5 runs straight down the middle...
Be a world child, form a circle before we all go under...
I'll be waiting with a gun and a pack of sandwiches...
All evidence has been buried, all tapes have been erased...
Yesterday's headlines blown by the wind...
Escaped from the zoo, the perfect child facsimile...
When I am king, you will be first against the wall..
One minute snake-charming, the next in a motorcade...
It's the best thing that you've ever, ever had...
I won't let this happen to my children...
There are two colours in my head - what was that you tried to say?
It's like the world is gonna end so soon...
I was stronger, I was better...
You feed me to the lions, a delicate balance...
