Lyrics: a random selection

 

Leading The Swarm
Did you see me in the headlines looking hard, looking mean?
I had been up all night organising that scene
With a neighbourhood witch hunt looking good for a scoop
I found one with good profile to lead my rabid group
Shall we follow the teacher
If he teaches us nothing
Follow the leader
Leading the swarm back home

Did you see me on the canvas getting ready to absorb
With aura pouring off me I was looking good to score
But they found another figure radiating high
Yeah they found another figure ‘cos he’d given them the sight
Shall we follow the teacher
If he teaches us nothing
Follow the leader
Leading the swarm back home

Did you see me in the headlights I was only there awhile
You could see the ammunition but not the camomile
I’d been waiting up for hours I knew you’d be along
Because everybody needs someone to lead them home
Shall we follow the teacher
If he teaches us nothing
Follow the leader
Leading the swarm back home, home, home
Leading the swarm back home, home, home
Leading the swarm back home

Control The Freak

Our eyes met across a crowded cage
What a bad time to be carrying a bomb
They could search me but they would find nothing
I'd already decided to be carrying on

Freak now or forever be complacent
Freak now
Get back on your feet

Our eyes met across a crowded page
So I took her to the edhe and there she saw the void
Behold! The ocean, we are but waves
To crash on the shore and find the other side

Freak now or forever be silent
Freak now and break yourself free

It's like a dog without a kennel

Freak now...

Put Yourself In Your Place
Wasted line, oh what you could have told me
It’s a nice line, different, as my keep files away
Someone said you stole it
It makes no matter, cease!
It’s just noise using mine
Suck my legends dry

Now you’ll put yourself away
Now you’ll put yourself away

Do I seem ungrateful?
It’s just not much help to me
You engage my attention
Now why not use it well
There’s just too many pictures
Just too many pictures
I’m only watching forward
I’m always counting down

Now you’ll put yourself away
Now you’ll put yourself away

Broken by the fickle
You are down without disease
You’re the speciality
Having raced inside yourself
Our mind’s wide open
 Desolate and barren
Oh did you seek provision?
You gave the wrong excuse

Now you’ll put yourself away
Now you’ll put yourself away

ma collar

in the corner of my mind she is haunting me
with a gang of neon lies and a pedigree
the lady is no lady so she pretends
all the while making you think that you must make amends

how did you say you're mine?

keep in mind you're not the only one that she lied to
it's a way of life for her and for her family too
they are lost inside the big one it's a one man show
sell you invites to your first offence
and then they don't let go

how did you say you're mine?

going to a stoning

got no money no alcohol
little bit of weed that'll soon be gone
don't keep sniffin cos your nose is clean
that's another false tingle running down your spine
it's a nursery purse in a pyramid scheme
a one horse fashion in a fractured line

come visit us in distortistan
in the hell of denial of the puritan
you mean to tell me that you're shit don't smell?
i'm here to tell you that your nose ain't well
you're clean
but are you judgement clean?
you're clean
but are you fuck 'em all mean?
you're stable
so very stable

  Emily Jumps the Fence

I like looking in the mirror
I like what do I see
I can't get enough of the mirror
I can't get enough of me
The hero is in the corner
The girl is 8 out of 10
The boy is next to nothing
Come on, let's be friends

Don't worry about your baby
Somebody's goint to bring her down

My collection of mirrors
Means I am all that I see
My world stretches forever
My world contains only me
The hero invaded the corner
The girl has got money to spend
The boy thinks he's on to something
Come on, let's pretend

Don't worry about your baby
Somebody's going to bring her down

The hero is dead in the corner
The girl ran off with his friend
The boy is up to something
Is this how it must end?

Don't worry about your baby
Somebody's going to bring her down
Somebody's going to get her out

Tombstone Ivory
It didn’t happen the way you saw it
I saw it too, I know
It didn’t happen at all, in fact
Just your imagination let go
I know I’m not mistaken
I’m never wrong, I know
Don’t let it get out of hand
Don’t let it breed, let it go

And don’t let it happen again
Never let it happen

And yet we die, we die again
Come back and try and try again
The words are there and meaningless
Memories, a farewell kiss
Jump the queue, let’s ride the train
See if we cheat fate again
If only you had seen me coming
We could have avoided this

And never let it happen again

I never made any sense of this
Just let it pass me by
And in the end we’re all the same
Sit back and watch time fly
Maybe there’s some masterplan
That I will never understand
And one day when I know

I’ll be free to be let go

Have Ye Got A Spare Burden I Can Carry?

When no stranger thing can happen, think of me
I've been given a lifetime immunity
You're just like a nodding dog, you can't say no
You're just like a lifeguard waiting to explode

You let me leave your side empty handed
Don't let me leave empty handed

When no stranger thing can happen, think of me
I've been living a lifetime guarantee
You're just like a nodding dog, you can't say no
You're just like a lifeguard waiting to let go

You let me leave your side empty handed
Don't let me leave empty handed

You let me leave your side empty handed
Don't let me leave empty handed
Don't let me leave your side empty handed
