1. Parole

on the edge on the edge
i believe im on the edge
and through a window dirty window
and need some light and air
and she came upon my window with a promise of love
just lie through the skin on your teeth and she's sure to let you go

i dont really want you to leave now im on parole
consumed by the love of another im on parole

i catch my breath my smokey breath
for the first time in a century
these prison walls filthy walls look better looking out than looking in
then she came upon my window with a promise of love
just lie through the skin on our teeth and she's sure to let you go


2. Turbulent

too much time thinking about disturbing you
sober nights bring upon reluctant views
changinig light from white to orange juice
fingers around my neck im turning blue

feel turbulent
feel turbulent

not yourself in a world that i once knew

i spend my life thinking about destroying you
and anxious to try not to try to be like you

feel turbulent
feel turbulent


3. Grey Flap

Time never was as they are for me
I'm happiest in a world full of error
Time breaks my heart changed my soul again 
This time my friend

Excuse if I'm wrong
But I need some encouraging
Thank you for being so bold
So catch me when I fall
See I need your touch beside me
Thank you for being so bold

And armed with your luck, that's my fault I see
And safe in your world full of time, full of pressure
Time breaks my heart changed my soul again this time my friend

Excuse if I'm wrong
But I need some encouraging
Thank you for being so bold
So catch me when I fall
See I need your touch beside me
Thank you for being so bold
It's sometimes I feel like waking up
Then sometimes I feel like changing
But it's oh so easy to say
When your brain is not inside your ass 

 

4. Shoplifters Of The World Unite

Learn to love me
assemble the ways
now, today, tomorrow and always
my only weakness is a list of crime
my only weakness is ... well, never mind, never mind

oh, shoplifters of the world
unite and take over
shoplifters of the world
hand it over
hand it over
hand it over

learn to love me
and assemble the ways
now, today, tomorrow, and always
my only weakness is a listed crime
but last night the plans of a future war
was all I saw on Channel Four

shoplifters of the world
unite and take over
shoplifters of the world
hand it over
hand it over
hand it over

aheartless hand on my shoulder
a push - and it's over
alabaster crashes down
(six months is a long time)
tried living in the real world
instead of a shell
but before I began ...
i was bored before I even began

shoplifters of the world
unite and take over
shoplifters of the world
unite and take over
shoplifters of the world
unite and take over
shoplifters of the world
take over

5. I Am No One

i am no one to say
tomorrow i'll have the chid inside me
and if you want me for a friend
go change the world but dont forget your brother
and if you need me to be there
just run the chain and dont forget to choke me

i am no one. make me someone
i am no one. make me someone

as i wonder
makes me wonder
but need thy discover

tomorrow's the day when nighttime
engulfs your holy father oh yes
and sunday the day you beg for forgivness with no sorrow.

i am no one make me someone
i am no one make me someone

as i wonder makes me wonder

6. Eight Sides

aim changing my life im bleeding all the time
this night may be my final night
destructive but kind
contagious yet blind
looking at you i dont really see much love

my mother wasn't kind we didnt see eye to eye
its all academic now; she shit me out
twisting like time. my brain has different sides
push me wrong i'll push you off the track

eight sides
eight sides

im focusing i find. im drinfting in and out of time
a kiss from me. you can kiss your life goodbye

theres nothing wrong with my head

[chorus]

7. I'm Afraid Of Life

let me out of the womb...
leave this earth with a dry wet kiss
capture my heart with your fingertips
i love you in death i hate you in life
a 2 second flashback can change my life

i'm afraid of life. i need some understanding world
i'm afraid of life. i need some strength and four more horse

strange but blid she shows up timed
angry and scared i loose my mind
i hate you in death. i love you in life
these feelings of fear they rule my life

and together we fight. together we die
give me your tongue and the earth flies bye
but together were one. together wev'e died
i am your sun and your earth

[chorus]

take me back to the womb...

8. Electra Complex

its mysterious its blind faith
this way i feel for you. love me last take my hand daddy i dress for you

do you feel the same way.
feel the same way
same way that i do

its godflesh its moments touch this scent i have for you i know im wrong the
feel is strong
explain. no not to soon

[chorus]

worshipping the ground that you walk on and its wrong
capturing this feeling deep inside this song.
expressing all my feelings this bloodline seems so long
i'll end it with a kiss a kick a punch no more

its sysyncopation a generation 20 years to soon
a crazy wish a burning itch. now leave me alone you

9. Down & Out

change dosent come easy for lazy and sleazy
shots from a tower the song of the hour
i have personal hatred for the selfish and jaded
how could this blade taste a part of your shadow?

down and out..
down and out..

i cant feel my temples this throbbing entangles
she begs at my ankles at feeds on my bowels
i cant take this pressure, this timeless adventure
something keeps tickling
i cant fucking think!

400miles from home
i wanna be alone
400miles from home
i wanna be alone

down and out..
down and out..

10. Mix Me With Blood

take me in and take my arm
i think this could be love
have me in the bridal suite
digestion overcome
fake me out with vinyl sheets the problem hasnt come
blackened meat like irish feet just look what ive become

worry tomorrow but mix me with blood
cry out tomorrow but mix me with blood

take your time but ruin mine to feel but not become
exit life and future gripe existing in a ball
a bargain life the darkest times can change but never show
take me in and take my hand i loive to see you crawl

[chorus]

11. My Feet

catch me if you can im quicker than an eye
call me crazy i'll call you mine
you are not yourself i can tell by your ears
warm and tender make me shine

im alone here, feeling strong here, but my feet are not my own

alcohol fucks with my mind
makes me crazy
akes me blind
you are not yourself i can tell by the white of your ears

you look for pressure pressurized

[chorus]

not my own
not my own

12. Exit Wound

i feel the pain enter me
never seems to go
i smell the rush flush me
tear apart my mood

exit wound
exit wound

theres nothing left. nothing
to send back home to school
i feel this touch clutch me
time to just let go

exit wound
exit wound
exit wound
