Gather up the lost and sold in your arms...
I'm lost at sea, don't bother me, I've lost my way...
Nervous, messed-up marionette, flying along on a prison ship...
I swat 'em like flies, but, like flies, the buggers keep coming back...
He was a stupid baby who turned into a powerful freak...
My thoughts are misguided and a little naïve...
Every woman blows her cover in the eye of the beholder...
I used to fly like Peter Pan...
Kill me, Sarah, kill me again - with love...
There are better things to talk about - be constructive...
If you give up on me now, I'd be gutted like I've never been before...
Radio has salmonella, and now you know you're gonna die...
Something big is gonna happen - over my dead body!
This is my way of saying goodbye, 'cause I can't do it face to face...
Here we are, without running and confusion...
She is papering the window panes, she is putting on a smile...
Did the cat get your tongue? Did your string come undone?
I used to think there was no future left at all...
So I declare a holiday, fall aslep, drift away
As your life flashed before your eyes, you realised...
Murderers, you're murderers - we are not the same as you!
We're not scaremongering, this is really happening!
Whatever makes you happy; whatever you want...
This is just a nightmare, soon I'm gonna wake up...
You feed me to the lions, a delicate balance...
I was stronger, I was better...
And there's nothing to say, and there's nothing to do...
Slide your hand, jump off the end - the water's clear and innocent...
Bastard headmaster! I am not going back...
Yesterday's headlines blown by the wind...
When the power runs out, we'll just hum...
The pointless, snide remarks of hammerheaded sharks...
I'm an animal trapped in your hot car...
I'd be crazy not to follow, follow where you lead...
X'll mark the place like the parting of the waves...
I work, I bleed, I beg, I pray... but I'm better off dead...
Appliances have gone berserk, I cannot keep up...
All evidence has been buried, all tapes have been erased...
Red wine and sleeping pills - help me get back to your arms...
I shall now perform a 180 flip-flop...

In a city of the future, it is difficult to concentrate...
Where'd you park the car? Where'd you park the car?
A beautiful girl can turn your world into dust...
Her Hitler hairdo is making me feel ill...
Give your leaders each a gun and then let them fight it out themselves...
Your tiny hands, your crazy kitten smile...
The answer to your prayers - we'll drop you anywhere...
Rules and schedule - a job that kills you...
Throw your keys in the bowl, kiss your husband goodnight...
Because we separate like ripples on a blank shore...
Sing us a song, a song to keep us warm - there's such a chill...
It's like the world is gonna end so soon...
I won't let this happen to my children...
One minute snake-charming, the next in a motorcade...
I get on the train and I just stand about...
They ask me where the hell I'm going at a thousand feet per second...
Spare the gory details...
But now I can see that there's a way out...
Wax me, mould me, heat the pins and stab them in...
I feel better, I feel better now there's nothing wrong...
A good memory; still cries at a good film, still kisses with saliva...
As the tanks roll into town, a little bit of knowledge will destroy you...
And everything I touch turns to stone...
There are two colours in my head - what was that you tried to say?
Everyone is so near, everyone has got the fear...
Won't let the creeping ivy, won't let the nervous bury me...
You're either in the club, baby, or you're not...
Take a lesson from me, don't get stuck on a dream...
Just lying in a bar with my drip feeds on...
This is the place - sit down, you're safe now...
It's just business - cattle prods and the IMF...
I slipped away, I slipped on a little white lie...
I live in a town where you can't smell a thing...
I am open, I am welcome for a fraction of a second...
I walk through walls, I float down the Liffey...
I must get out once in a while, everything's starting to die...
Tugging at my arms and legs like I was a marionette...
I am hungry again, I am drunk again...
Escaped from the zoo, the perfect child facsimile...
Be a world child, form a circle before we all go under...
LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
I spit on the hand that feeds me - I will not control myself!
Wrap me up in the back of the trunk, packed with foam...
If you'd been a dog, they would've drowned you at birth...
Was always waiting for the crush, the car to drive right through the shops...
She knows if you die, then we all do...
Come on if you think you can take us on...
In the deep, deep sleep of the innocent, I am born again...
Know right from wrong, or in the flood, you'll build an ark...
Interstate 5 runs straight down the middle...
I am trapped in the society pages of your magazines...
I need warmth - a restless body cracks some more...
The smell of fear is thicker than you think...
The raindrops, the raindrops, the raindrops...
When I am king, you will be first against the wall..
You paint yourself white, and fill up with noise...
Lock the kids in safe tonight, and shut the eyes in the cupboard...
A pale imitation, with the edges sawn off...
You can kiss it, you can break all the rules...
Now you've stolen all the magic, and took my melody...
With my X-Ray eyes I strip you naked in a tight little world...
I'll take a quiet life, a handshake of carbon monoxide...
'Cause all I want is the moon upon a stick...
I know I should not look down, but I'm so sick of just talking...
I tumble like a clown before your baying hounds...
There are doors that let you in and out but never open...
She'd love to come help, but the sea would electrocute us all...
Why so green and lonely, and lonely? Heaven sent you to me...
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...
You've got a head full of feathers...
You eye each other as you pass - she looks back and you look back...
Distracted by irrelevance, the stress and the tension
He used to do surgery for girls in the eighties...
Who bribed the company to come and see you, honey?
It must be hard, hard with your head on backwards...
Comes like a comet, suckered you but not your friends...
The emptiest of feelings, disappointed people clinging onto bottles...
It's the best thing that you've ever, ever had...
Open your mouth wide, the universal sigh...
There was nothing to fear, nothing to doubt...
