LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
It's just business - cattle prods and the IMF...
Radio has salmonella, and now you know you're gonna die...
Something big is gonna happen - over my dead body!
Whatever makes you happy; whatever you want...
I am open, I am welcome for a fraction of a second...
When I am king, you will be first against the wall..
Routines and schedules - a job that kills you...
I must get out once in a while, everything's starting to die...
With my X-Ray eyes I strip you naked in a tight little world...
We're not scaremongering, this is really happening!
If you give up on me now, I'd be gutted like I've never been before...
I live in a town where you can't smell a thing...
In the deep, deep sleep of the innocent, I am born again...
I spit on the hand that feeds me - I will not control myself!
They ask me where the hell I'm going at a thousand feet per second...
The pointless, snide remarks of hammerheaded sharks...
The raindrops, the raindrops, the raindrops...
Escaped from the zoo, the perfect child facsimile...
But now I can see that there's a way out...
I know I should not look down, but I'm so sick of just talking...
Just lying in a bar with my drip feeds on...
The emptiest of feelings, disappointed people clinging onto bottles...
Was always waiting for the crush, the car to drive right through the shops...
There are better things to talk about - be constructive...
There are doors that let you in and out but never open...
'Cause all I want is the moon upon a stick...
Now you've stolen all the magic, and took my melody...
I'll take a quiet life, a handshake of carbon monoxide...
Appliances have gone berserk, I cannot keep up...
Why so green and lonely, and lonely? Heaven sent you to me...
I used to think there was no future left at all...
I feel better, I feel better now there's nothing wrong...
The answer to your prayers - we'll drop you anywhere...
Where'd you park the car? Where'd you park the car?
As the tanks roll into town, a little bit of knowledge will destroy you...
There are two colours in my head - what was that you tried to say?
I won't let this happen to my children...
Interstate 5 runs straight down the middle...
Slide your hand, jump off the end - the water's clear and innocent...
Throw your keys in the bowl, kiss your husband goodnight...
LyricSong TitleAlbum (Year)
Wrap me up in the back of the trunk, packed with foam...
Distracted by irrelevance, the stress and the tension
He was a stupid baby who turned into a powerful freak...
I get on the train and I just stand about...
I need warmth - a restless body cracks some more...
Tugging at my arms and legs like I was a marionette...
As your life flashed before your eyes, you realised...
My thoughts are misguided and a little naïve...
I tumble like a clown before your baying hounds...
Yesterday's headlines blown by the wind...
I walk through walls, I float down the Liffey...
It must be hard, hard with your head on backwards...
Her Hitler hairdo is making me feel ill...
Won't let the creeping ivy, won't let the nervous bury me...
Wax me, mould me, heat the pins and stab them in...
X'll mark the place like the parting of the waves...
You've got a head full of feathers...
I work, I bleed, I beg, I pray... but I'm better off dead...
And there's nothing to say, and there's nothing to do...
Open your mouth wide, the universal sigh...
I shall now perform a 180 flip-flop...
Here we are, without running and confusion...
In a city of the future, it is difficult to concentrate...
Who bribed the company to come and see you, honey?
Every woman blows her cover in the eye of the beholder...
Know right from wrong, or in the flood, you'll build an ark...
So I declare a holiday, fall aslep, drift away
If you'd been a dog, they would've drowned you at birth...
Bastard headmaster! I am not going back...
Sing us a song, a song to keep us warm - there's such a chill...
Be a world child, form a circle before we all go under...
Murderers, you're murderers - we are not the same as you!
Give your leaders each a gun and then let them fight it out themselves...
Come on if you think you can take us on...
Everyone is so near, everyone has got the fear...
He used to do surgery for girls in the eighties...
And everything I touch turns to stone...
She knows if you die, then we all do...
I slipped away, I slipped on a little white lie...
Your tiny hands, your crazy kitten smile...

One minute snake-charming, the next in a motorcade...
Red wine and sleeping pills - help me get back to your arms...
I am hungry again, I am drunk again...
Because we separate like ripples on a blank shore...
Don't forget that you are our son, now go back to bed...
A beautiful girl can turn your world into dust...
This is just a nightmare, soon I'm gonna wake up...
When the power runs out, we'll just hum...
Gather up the lost and sold in your arms...
The smell of fear is thicker than you think...
I'd be crazy not to follow, follow where you lead...
You can kiss it, you can break all the rules...
YOU HAVE NOT BEEN PAYING ATTENTION
Spare the gory details...
I was stronger, I was better...
I'm an animal trapped in your hot car...
All evidence has been buried, all tapes have been erased...
You're either in the club, baby, or you're not...
Nervous, messed-up marionette, flying along on a prison ship...
I'm lost at sea, don't bother me, I've lost my way...
There was nothing to fear, nothing to doubt...
Did the cat get your tongue? Did your string come undone?
Kill me, Sarah, kill me again - with love...
You eye each other as you pass - she looks back and you look back...
She is papering the window panes, she is putting on a smile...
This is the place - sit down, you're safe now...
I am trapped in the society pages of your magazines...
A pale imitation, with the edges sawn off...
You paint yourself white, and fill up with noise...
Take a lesson from me, don't get stuck on a dream...
It's the best thing that you've ever, ever had...
It's like the world is gonna end so soon...
She'd love to come help, but the sea would electrocute us all...
I used to fly like Peter Pan...
A good memory; still cries at a good film, still kisses with saliva...
Comes like a comet, suckered you but not your friends...
Lock the kids in safe tonight, and shut the eyes in the cupboard...
This is my way of saying goodbye, 'cause I can't do it face to face...
You feed me to the lions, a delicate balance...
I'll be waiting with a gun and a pack of sandwiches...
