I was stepped on in the hardest place When love stopped creeping in I got better every night that blood was on the rise And you, such a fool, blinded by the sun said to me Of all the ways in all the world, you're the only one I know - I know you lie I know - always something sweeter on the side Under pressure from the pouring rain To prove what we believe Upstarts upstanding for all that's good and right How strange when the blame gathered at my feet once again Oh where was my partner in crime, you'd always stay I know - but I know you lie I know - always something sweeter on the... I know - yeah yeah yeah No - always something sweeter on the side You, such a fool, blinded by the light, said to me Oh where was my partner in crime, you'd always stay I know - but I know you lie I know - always something sweeter on the... I know - yeah yeah yeah I know you...

You're so easy to please Like cutting off a piece of key-lime Soak your body with me Doesn't that make you feel like Someone of great importance Something ain't right Someone of great importance Something has crossed the water Nobody wants to be here And it's all you can take, you can take, you can take And it's all you can take, you can take It's been more than a week Since you last called your mother Circumcised in a dream Anything to remember Something to make you notice Something ain't right What's really going on here Something has crossed the water Nobody wants to be here And it's all you can take, you can take, you can take And it's all you can take, you can take Cash your chips Move your lips Count yourself involved Roles assumed Control consumed Watch your tribe evolve On the line All the time One more problem solved And it's all you can take, you can take, you can take And it's all you can take, you can take, you can take And it's all you can take, you can take, you can take And it's all you can take, you can take Doesn't that make you special

Lies, flies, octopi, oxygen commoditised Arms all open wide, love can be a prison too And so can be your ever-present gratitude Ingenue, great exchange rate for April fools Out to do another new taboo Another Sunday, another shade of gloom It's never far away Sleeping in the waves What better time to wear your shade The sucker pulled astray Sleeping in the waves Another shade of gloom to make your day Brass upper-class, celebrant to circumstance Said to say she believed in that old romance And now she's making love in an ambulance Up to you what you do with your afternoon Second chances abounding two-by-two Can always count on the ignorance of youth

First prize to the teenage bridesmaids Not much more to say But years lost to a sadist god Has left nothing in my way This my mistress, saddled for war Surely worth some kind of reward Living with the murder that she wrought PG re: the bitter flavour It's not good for your health But all art's just the human heart In conflict with itself This my mistress saddled for war Surely worth some kind of reward Living with the murder that she wrought unto me Well done to me Living with the murder that she wrought

47 Apes 04:24
The forest rolls away from me My old acre friends torn up to be The pulp of pages that taught me to read See me grieve... Shell out for a taxi cab The contents of an empty plastic bag 47 apes for good of man On my hands... It's a shame, it's a waste This is the human race Someday I'll go but not yet Somewhere I know to forget I'll become a writer now And just recite what I cannot write down On something that did not come from the ground All I've found... Sleeping in your leather rags Swallowing some washed-up boiled-down nag Progress in the vivisection lab Can't take back... It's a shame, it's a waste This is the human race Someday I'll go but not yet Somewhere I know to forget My paper planes and airmiles Paper planes and airmiles... No not yet Somewhere I know to forget These things I've done and regret
