Bangkok shocks, and I can hardly breathe The fire escape is making me dizzy Lights flash up in a midnight dream Sometimes I even wish I can get down on my knees A distant song and a hollow scream Meets between my ears with starved temper I know it sounds fucked up, but I swear to God It seemed like the skyline looked right through me The skyline looked right through me Clouds like distant anger That you fondly remember for getting you somewhere Air like running marathons of dreams Buildings scarring old wounds that are pretty being ugly A distant song made me wish I could fly What I felt in my chest made me cry The city skipped across my skin Sometimes I’m glad I’m scared to fly I know it sounds fucked up, but I swear to God It seemed like the skyline looked right through me The skyline looked right through me And I’m pretty ugly I’m so pretty feeling ugly I know It sounds fucked up But I swear to god The skyline looked right through me

Uh-oh, was that your coat on my shoulders While I watch a giant dick on the stage spit Bow down, it could have anyone of you Bow down, it could have anyone Bow down, to the beautiful sound We’ll go and dance the night away Everybody’s here as I fold into your neck Techno, your hands seem as hungry as mine Techno, you hands seem hungry Uh-oh Sitting down and I tell you it’s not that pretty But you don’t seem to mind With velvet embers you’re having an okay time Stay here for a while Stay here for a while Stay here for a while I’m comfortable But no more time to kill Crashing, down to the ground I’m drunk and I’m Infirm Well, I’m fine I guess, you know where I am With velvet With velvet embers What if I’m just using this? What if you’re just using this? What if we’re just using this? What if we’re both just using this? So what if we’re just using this

Getting old 05:17
Every time I hear you coming round I know it’ll be same old same old Every time I see you on the news You’re just giving out same old same old Same old same old Every time I hear you coming round I know you’ll be same old same old Every time your voice is on the radio I’m just hearing same old same old What you trying to prove? Same old same old Every time I read about you in the newspaper It’s same old same old What you trying to prove? Same old same old Every single speech Every single interview You’re same old same old Every time I try and do something new It’s same old same old What you trying to prove?

Look I'm floating That must count for something I'm hoping I'll sail right in Want for nothing Hoping for everything This paradise is wrestling You slide on your best intentions Sinking back to him His arms say a blank book But the embrace holds a script Hey it's funny I'm sure there's a joke in here We could pretend a punchline Wait for silence and take a deep breath An easy ride is a shame You slide on your best intentions Sinking back to him His arms say a blank book But his embrace holds a script Hoping for everything This paradise is wrestling

Yesterday all your cares went astray Or was that the day before? I'm not so sure anymore Right now I don't feel I'm any help Don't want to say anything you might throw away It prickles and fades Like our mistakes Don't drive me away So my walls sweat, is that a problem? Reflection stares unkind This body my God it's unsure And it makes a change from orange glow static fuzz Trapped in a cubicle Crushing me into the floor Wait one moment It's what you need Don't drive me away You say I'm complicated When I'm just drunk and tired If it didn't have to mean a thing I'd stay here all night If it didn't have to mean a thing I'd fake it

Long day Looking for somewhere to rest your head While I creep quietly around the house Like a spider in the threads of your limbs You won't let me go Still I find you interesting The carburettor in your lungs It rattles and moans It won't let me get any sleep Still you interest me With your train-crash teeth I'd hang around in here But this bed is stuck at 45 degrees That shotgun wound in your chest Is it real? Oh silly me, you're just trying to impress And did you really want me? No, I didn't think so You just wanted to get some sleep Still you interest me Your confusion is kinda sweet But I can't stick around here On this bed that's stuck at 45 degrees And you interest me As I creep away from you Into the spare room Where at least I'll get a bit of fucking sleep Never was a lad like you Never was a lad like you Never was a lad like you Don't you know? Didn't you figure that out?
