Poison 03:02
alcohol fills up the baptism fonts magazine bibles publicity stunts stuck on a drip feed the patient's warn thin still on the brink of that lottery win waiting in line it's almost time politics broken religions proved wrong waiting to operate money has gone chasing a pipe dream that's sprung a few leaks we could be dead in a matter of weeks when that bell chimes we'll find our spines so burn all our money and we'll take the ashes away coz we've all been poisoned, poisoned and we're all to blame
2.
We're Fine 03:44
analyse our tendencies and pick apart our habits take me out my comfort zone and kill all our white rabbits chalk a line onto the ground tell me how to be strong for all the things you seem to tell me i couldn't be more wrong but we're fine, we're fine, we're fine, we're fine, we're fine if this is labelled helpful then i might cry some more a book that makes it easy to highlight all our floors when all of this is nearly over and objectives have been met you pull apart my four leafed clover and i'll never have regrets but we're fine, we're fine, we're fine, we're fine, we're fine
3.
Not Alone 02:53
they wait for each other to make the first move in the moment that it happens they enjoy the ruse as an act of penance they'll walk hand in hand all the young lovers in love on demand but they're not alone, no they're not alone, not alone it's happened before but never the same a new destination but on the same train and they walk on leaving their heads far behind they're bodies and hearts are sure not to mind but they're not alone, no they're not alone, not alone
4.
Major Tom 03:56
and though it was so new it was somewhere that I knew and through the dusty air there were spotlights where I stared i'm further away and I know i'm further away but i'm down to, down to earth this time
5.
judgement day happens so often but people don't fear anymore, fear is forgotten and we make mistakes, we're cruel & we're rotten but people don't fear anymore, fear is forgotten stop falling asleep with the light on stop taking a seat when you should be standing up you're afraid but you forgot and when leaders fake caution, ignore all the problems then the people don't fear anymore, the fear is forgotten and at the church of consumption, we take a mortgage out on heaven and then people don't fear anymore, the fear is forgotten stop falling asleep with the light on stop taking a seat when you should be standing up you're afraid but you forgot so forget all your friends, your family your cousins and then you won't fear any more, the fear is forgotten stop falling asleep with the light on stop taking a seat when you should be standing up you're afraid but you forgot people don't fear anymore the fear is forgotten
6.
Enough 03:04
watching you fending them off with a smile there's nothing that you can do the drinks and the laughing go on for a while as your arm breaks in two so nod if you want to how many fingers am I holding up nod if you want to but when do you figure you've had enough lust it can guide a blind man's aim and love only second to that a desperate crusade is always a shame i'm sure he's as blind as a bat so nod if you want to how many fingers am I holding up nod if you want to but when do you figure you've had enough
7.
Bayonets 01:39
take off your bayonet and just shoot me call off your dogs, you've tied up my hands take off your bayonet and just shoot me i'm a puppet with my strings half cut and you know it's not as difficult to lie as it should be you've shortened the fuse wise the clock's ticking but what can i say to turn back the time you're duelling with a two pace head start i'm dead before i've even turned around and you know it's not as difficult to lie as it should be it's not as difficult to lie as it should be
8.
Blocks 04:01
filling up a cup with holes in but water isn't rushing out picking at the bricks and mortar but the wall it just won't crumble down when i tried to build a bridge there was nothing on the other side when i tried to get to dry land i was swept out by a stronger tide
9.
we see too many stories to pick out the main plots find some, that make us uneasy, that put us on the spot we're always afraid of what might happen we should be afraid of what might not good luck and goodbye I know someday you'll get there and sure somedays you'll be scared good luck and goodbye walking on an old dirt track the dust is flying up our footprints show where we've come from but we're not going to stop we're looking ahead at virgin acres we're looking ahead at barren land good luck and goodbye I know someday you'll get there and sure somedays you'll be scared good luck and goodbye good luck and goodbye I hope that you'll never be alone I love you but I had to go good luck and goodbye
10.
s'often painful to start again, it's a delicate thing are you going to jump, or should I push you in and you think you won't find love quite the same and he's to blame do you think that a blind man, is afraid of the dark you assume that a dog's bite is as bad as it's bark and you think you won't find love with somebody new, but what's stopping you you're in love and you know with who but it's tough convincing you coz you've had enough of being told what to do by love do you think that the stars align, to tell you that it's the right time you're a beautiful person and that won't change you have spent too much time now on your own and it's shown there is someone who cares for you, & he already has he was there for you the last time, he was round in a flash and he never had eyes for anybody else, but yourself you're in love and you know with who but it's tough convincing you coz you've had enough of being told what to do by love
11.
we're all obese and we're full of diseases scraping our fists on the town cursing the sky coz we're stuck on the ground you creep up on death and he turns around grinning he knew you were there all along your life flashed before you it didn't take long live your life or die trying live your life or die trying if there was a curse on this town that I live in i'm not sure i'd notice at all is this the future the writing's on the wall i've made bad decisions but never regret them i'm sure that i'll pay for them right every damn fool thing I do in this life live your life or die trying live your life or die trying live your life or die trying live your life or die trying
