Can't Stop These Things
Hot coffee burns my mouth, I been staring in a dream
The money would be good, I think but not as good as clean
I would have more sense if I could sense what I could have
I'm learning things about myself that I never knew I had

My mind, can't stop the things that make me want it
My mind, can't stop these things
My mind, has enough to do without you on it
My mind, can't wait to see you try and stop it

I've held my eyes wide open but it's very hard to see
The slimy hidden dangers unless you've got ESP
I would have more sense if I could sense what I could have
I'm learning things about myself that I never knew I had

My mind, can't stop the things that make me want it
My mind, can't stop these things
My mind, has enough to do without you on it
My mind, can't wait to see you try and stop it

I want some kind of contact with you, you must admit I haven't bugged you
So you're due for some annoyance, the last three months you've had enjoyment
Out of watching them contain it, uninvited you obtained it
From the unsuspecting shamless but you're not exactly blameless
My mind, has enough to do without you on it
My mind, can't stop the things that make me want it
My mind, has enough to do without you on it
My mind, has enough to do with

My mind, can't stop the things that make me want it
My mind, can't stop these things
My mind, has enough to do without you on it
My mind, can't wait to see you try and stop it

Try and stop it, try and stop itback to top
Cloud 9
If there's anything I can do just tell me I'll be there
I need someone to help me, start breathing in clean air

Sick of feeling cloudy and not having any clues
If you want to tell me, if there's something I can do
Sick of feeling lonely, and not having any clues
If you want to tell me, if there's something I can do, do

I think you're fuckin' crazy just staring into space
But that's the price you've got to pay for losing the big race
Didn't need to line up, but you took your starting blocks
Couldn't stand there quiet, when your mouth is spitting rocks
Didn't need to line up, but you took your starting blocks
Couldn't stand there quiet, when your mouth is spitting rocks

And I'll help you sort it out, the very best I can
Throw out all your nightmares, put you on cloud 9
The only thing you have to do is make sure you got a mind, a mind

And I'll help you sort it out, the very best I can
Throw out all your nightmares, put you on cloud 9
The only thing you have to do is make sure you got a mind, a mind

And I'll help you sort it out, the very best I can
Throw out all your nightmares, put you on cloud 9
The only thing you have to do is make sure you got a mind, a mindback to top
Fall into Place
When I talk, you will talk, when you talk it will fall back into place, yeah
When I talk, you will talk, when you talk it will fall back into place,
yeah

This is something that we've got to suss ourselves
If we don't we're gonna stay here on the shelf
That's where I should be, looking down at you
Making promises like politicians do

This is something that we've got to plan outright
If we don't we're gonna stay here in the shite
That's where I should be, looking up to you
Making promises like politicians do

When I talk, it will fall back into place, yeah
When I talk, it will fall back into place, yeah

You are like, having something in my eyes
Burning through the lens that money just can't buy
I'm rushing to the sink to try and wash it out
But you're already there just falling all about

That's where I should be, looking up to you
Making promises like politicians do
That's where I should be, looking up to you
Making promises like politicians do

When I talk, it will fall back into place, yeah
When I talk, it will fall back into place, yeahback to top
Situation
Tryin' hard to weigh up the situation
But without my mind's full cooperation
How can I have something to believe in
When I don't even listen to the mouth the words are leaving

Forever falling on my face and bruising
Forever falling on my face and bruising
On my face

Tryin' hard, to weigh up the situation
These clothes I wear aren't real, they're only imitation
They're only there, to divert people's attention
While I try and assess them out, I try and get to know them

Forever falling on my face and bruising
Forever falling on my face and bruising

Situation's trying hard, situation's on the car
Situation's on the car, situation's trying hard
Situation's trying hard, situation's on the car
Situation's on the car, situation's trying hard

Without my mind's full cooperationback to top
Simple
It never was that simple, the feelings in my head
To try to rearrange the things that I have done and said
It never was that easy, trying to contend
With the anger surging through my blood right to my fingerends

Thought that I could sort it out, tell you what I knew
Tell you what I thought about, think I tell you

I never did believe you, you covered it so well
And if you ever get a life, I hope that it's in hell
I wish that I could kill you, I'd slit your ugly throat
I'd wrap you up in concrete and throw you from a boat

Oh no, oh no
Oh no

It's not that simple, it never was that simple, it's not that simple

You push me on much further, I'm gonna lose my head
And if I focused with my eyes, I'd probably see red
You'll never feel my anger cause it happens far too quick
I'll open and I'll close up but you won't feel a prick

Thought that I could sort it out, tell you what I knew
Tell you what I thought about, think I tell you

You say I'm being nasty, you haven't seen the worst
I get up to my old tricks and that'll really hurt
I know that you'll be waiting, picking up on threads
Of faking information that's growing in your head

Oh no, oh no
Oh no
It's not that simple, it never was that simple, it's not that simpleback to top
Biscuit Barrel F.M.R
Wrap me up and seal me in cause I don't wanna see
The fallen rubble I'm standing in, it all breaks down to me

Have I dug the hole too deep?
I'm down too low, too low to sleep
I threw you down like a piece of shit
But now I find I stand in it

The one to blame, is sitting here
Telling you his awful fears, telling you his awful fears
I drove to town the other day
I hated myself all the way, hated myself all the way
All I wanted was a big stone wall to plow my way through let's say no
more
Don't worry yourself, I'm not that daft, I couldn't throw down, down
that shaft
I know what I've lost, and it's not my mind, it's my biscuit barrel true
and kind
Biscuit barrel true and kind

So wrap me up and seal me in cause I don't wanna see

I'd ask someone close to help but I know it's down to me
It's the same old problem, the same old song
You don't know what you got until what you got is gone
I tried to tell you what I was thinking
I don't even know myself

The one to blame, is sitting here
Telling you his awful fears, telling you his awful fears
I drove to town the other day, I hated myself all the way
I said "I hated myself all the way, all the way"
I know what I've lost, and it's not my mind, it's my biscuit barrel true
and kind

God Bets
Sprinkle patterns in your daydreams, the world seems so much brighter
You've only seen them once or twice but you wonder what's inside them

Your dream could come true, you know, just test the water
Before you heave your boots and go, you better think this over

God bets you leave them, God bets you lie
God bets you never get another chance, God knows why
God bets you leave them, God bets you lie
God bets you never get another chance, God knows why

Your mind is full of ifs and maybes, you don't know which way to go
You're falling down and standing up but you're not going home

Your dream could come true, you know, just test the water
Before you heave your boots and go, you better

God bets you leave them, God bets you lie
God bets you never get another chance, God knows why

There's a place where everyone is difficult
It's a human downfall we are guilty of
It's the things inside us that are typical
God knows why

God knows why
God knows why... you kill
You killback to top
Pictures
Picture talking with your friends without a conversation
Picture walking with yourself without a complication

I know, I know, you're running from me, I know, I know

Taking all my time, taking all my shine, taking all my pride
Taking almost everything, everything

Picture sleeping in your bed without a tug of war
Picture drinking with your friends

I know, I know, you're running from me, I know, I know

You're taking all my time, taking all my shine, you're taking all my
pride
Taking almost everything, everything

Picture talking with your friends, picture talking with your friends

I know, I know, you're running from me, I know, I know

Taking all my time, taking all my shine, taking all my pride
Taking almost everything, everything

Realization is coming to me, the facts and figures are all adding up to

Find the Time
When are you gonna find the time to take a look around
To find the things that make you smile, the things that bring you down

You can tell by the way you're drinking that it's not just a passing
thirst
I can tell by the way I'm thinking any more pressure's gonna make you
burst
So I don't mind it coming to an end
Cause this little thing's gonna drive me round the bend

How many junctions do you have to choose from
How many knackered places must you see
Before you brain collects the notion that it's going on too long
It would be better if you cut it clean

You shouldn't mind it coming to an end
Cause this little thing's gonna drive you round the bend

When are you gonna find the time to take a look around
To find the things that make you smile, the things that bring you down
When are you gonna find the time to take a look around
To find the things that make you smile, the things that bring you down

I felt like I just couldn't go on maybe give it all up for good
That feeling only lasts for so long then it gets back to feeling good

I don't mind it coming to an end
Why should I
So you shouldn't mind it coming to an end

When are you gonna find the time to take a look around
To find the things that make you smile, the things that bring you down
When are you gonna find the time to take a look around
To find the things that make you smile, the things that bring you down
The things that bring you down, the things that bring you down
The things that bring you down, the things that bring you downback to top
[Had a Good Idea on] Monday
You say, that you've changed but you haven't budged an inch
You think you got better but your attitude stinks

You're still diving down my throat, not giving me a chance
To explain exactly what I mean, do you think I owe you thanks

"You can't be happy" that's what she said to me
I think I got better, does my attitude stink?

You're still jumping down my throat, not giving me a chance
To explain exactly what I mean, do you think I owe you thanks

I tried to summon up feelings for you
But just ended up, empty handed
At least none worth counting
Crap times, bad memories
Always bouncing around through my fingers

I had a good idea on Monday, I thought that it would help me see
But that would end in violence, and that's not for me

I had a good idea on Monday
I thought that it would help me see
But that would end in violence, and that's not for me

You think that you're better but that doesn't mean a thing
You think that you've changed but your attitude stinks

You're still jumping down my throat, not giving me a chance
To explain exactly what I mean, do you think I owe you thanks

I tried to summon up feelings for you
But just ended up, empty handed
At least none worth counting
Crap times, bad memories
Always bouncing around through my fingers

I had a good idea on Monday, I thought that it could help me see

Last Chance
You know I can't believe, you're just going to stand and watch them bleed
Plummeting to the depths of your foolish bold concept
I've seen you before with good ideas but this one had its moments
The color crimson surrounds your ears, I think this time you've blown it

I think this time you've blown it, it's much too late to change
I think this time you know you coudn't rearrange
I think this time you've blown it, it's much too late to change
That was your last chance

You know I can't believe you're just going to stand and watch them bleed
Plummeting to the depths of your foolish bold concept
I've seen you before with good ideas but this one had its moments
The color crimson surrounds your ears, I think this time you've blown it
I think this time you've blown it

I think this time you've blown it, it's much too late to change
I think this time you know you coudn't rearrange
I think this time you've blown it, it's much too late to change

Take It Back
I'm sorry, I can't answer that, I want more time to let it sink in
I wouldn't hold your breath in fact I want more time for me to think
this over

You've been hurt before, you can have another you can never say you know
the score
You've been hurt before
Every time I see you fall I know you've been hurt before
Every time I see you fall, every time you fall, everytime you fall

Stupid words you said, you can take it back again
Stupid words you said, you can take them back again

I would like to believe you, I want more time for me to sink in
Wouldn't hold your breath in fact I want more time for me to sink in,
sink in

You've been hurt before, you can ever know that you can never say you
know the score
You've been hurt before
Every time I see you fall I know you've been hurt before
Every time I see you fall, every time you fall, everytime you fall

Stupid words you said, you can take it back again
Stupid words you said, you can take them back again

You've been hurt before, you can ever know that you can never say you

Every time I see you fall I know that you've been hurt before

Meaning
Near my place through the forest and the wood chopped
You can see everything from a fenced-off hill top
From rolling hills through soaking gills
From the gravel path, to the chimney's wrath

Even I can be pretentious, even I can give it meaning
Even I can be pretentious, even I can give it meaning
Give a bit of meaning, give a bit of meaning

Saw an old drunk, stuck up a tree
I coulda said that's my life but that's not me
It could be said, I was under lead
It could be said that I would wind up dead

But even I can be pretentious, even I can give it meaning
Even I can be pretentious, even I can give it meaning
Even I can give it meaning, give a bit of meaning, give a bit of meaning

Saw an old drunk, stuck up a tree
I Coulda said that's my life but that's not me
It Could be said, I was under lead
It could be said that I would wind up dead

Better Than Me
Having nothing better to do with my time I wandered across these emotions of
mine
Finding features that stuck in my head, I'm trying not to think of you
lying there dead

You've always been happy to be the person to say that you're better than
me
You've always been happy to be the person to say that you're better than
me
Better than me, better than me, better than me

It's taking its toll on me trying to find the reasons to help me believe
It's taking its toll on me I'm stuck inside the feeling that's better
than me

At school you always had me running around chasing things that would
bleed
I never had sense to stop to take a good look at the holes in your plot
But now you'll always be feeling the doubt that was better than me
But now you'll always be feeling the doubt that was better than me
Better than me, better than me, better than me

It's taking its toll on me, tried to find the reasons that helped me
believe
It's taking its toll on me, I'm stuck inside the feeling that's better
than me
I'm stuck inside the feeling that's better than me
I'm stuck inside the feeling that's better than me
I'm stuck inside the feeling that's better than me
I'm stuck inside the feeling that's better than me
Better than me, better than meback to top
Wuthering Heights
Out on the wiley, windy moors we'd roll and fall in green
You had a temper like my jealousy: too hot, too greedy
How could you leave me when I needed to possess you?
I hated you, I loved you, too

Bad dreams in the night, they told me I was going to lose the fight,
Leave behind my wuthering, wuthering, wuthering Heights
Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy
Come home, I'm so cold, let me into your window.
Heathcliff, it's me--Cathy.
Come home. I'm so cold, let me into your window.

Ooh, it gets dark! It gets lonely, on the other side from you
I pine a lot, I find the lot, falls through without you
I'm coming back, love, Cruel Heathcliff, my one dream, my only master

Too long I roam in the night, I'm coming back to his side, to put it
right.
I'm coming home to wuthering, wuthering, wuthering Heights
Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy
Come home, I'm so cold, let me into your window.
Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy
Come home. I'm so cold, let me into your window.

Ooh, let me have it, let me grab your soul away.
Ooh, let me have it, let me grab your soul away.
Let me grab your soul away, you know it's me, Cathy

Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy
Come home, I'm so cold, let me into your window.
Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy
Come home, I'm so cold, let me into your windowback to top
