Anyday Anyhow
Forgot to mention,
The new detention.
Forgone Conclusion
Current lack of inspiration.

Sophisticated,
Unpopulated
Choose a television set
Of colour screen sensation

[pre-chorus1]
Do you think that i was wrong
I've got a patient family
Was the plan meant to go there?
Anyday anyhow

[chorus]
Say what you want to belong to
Anytime
We dont come here very often
sold on side

Believe that
I'd never lie here
I couldn't feed another saviour
If the trouble ended up and did you wrong
Come say and get another reading

[Pre-Chorus2]
Did i do things much better
Did i do things much worse
Was it that patient family
Waiting there patiently

[chorus]
Say what you want to belong to
Anytime
We dont come here very often
sold on side

[SOLO]

[chorus]
Say what you want to belong to
Anytime
We dont come in very often
sold on side

[chorus]
Say what you want to belong to
Anytime
We dont come here very often

Lost Control
times up yeah you should've known
pretty little princess put it in a hole
cold expect its not a disease
can you take a photograph of us for them to see
bam bam bam trick or treat want to stay
we can do it ours and you will do it your way
not so bad if you follow the plan
thats how it goes with your head in the sand
we've already lost control
already lost control
we' already lost control
already lost control
can't we join an army of you
and help you out in battle defend your point of view
turn tables its just like you said
now i'm in the army probably better off dead
jam slam wam i forgot what to say
you can take the bows and ride along the highway
just thought you maybe would understand
what goes down playing in a band
we've already lost control
already lost control
we' already lost control
already lost control
no fun cause its all been done
picture perfect prefect thinks hes fucking won
read out the list and see if it's free
now im in your photographs as pretty as can be
jam slam mam was it somehting i said
when inside a moment i talk above my head
i love shit when it gets outta hand
smoke the grass quicker and then go rock the band
we've already lost control
already lost control
we' already lost control
already lost controlback to top
Gone Tomorrow
If you can't expect to take some blame,
You should fucken know you aint that perfect!

Sorry that it had to end this way,
Now i guess you're looking for an answer!

[Chorus:]
If we're not gone tomorrow,
this might end up in sorrow.
Those dreams, had passed you long ago,
Those dreams had passed, you long ago.

Could've just moved into my place,
But you wanted me to sell the sucker.

This is not the way its meant to rage,
You could've found another reject! (yeah)
(who cares? cares)

[Repeat Chorus x2]back to top
Chemical Heart
When look for a ride and you need to get high my friend
spend all your time just a walking around instead
like black rose its somebody to hold for them for them
lets go outside havin nothin to hide for free
can't seem to see the forest from the trees
grass is always greener but how do you know we'll see, we'll see

can't get started
chemical heart
everytime i get started
you pull me apart x2

forgotton maybe things are right on the other side undone
better off wishing for the stars to kill the sun
like packed rows that nobody can hold no one, no one

can't get started
chemical heart
everytime i get started
you pull me apart x2

yeah!!!

When look for a ride and you need to get high my friend
spend all your time just a walkin around instead
like black rose its somebody to hold for them for them

can't get started
chemical heart
everytime i get started
you pull me apart x2

yeah!!!

Make It Happen
I used to have you pinned
You used to work at d.js
Does it make you slimmer
Now you've got credit these days
Maybe I'm wrong it doesn't make it right
Maybe I'm dumb can you hold up the light
Can't seem to breath its getting cold inside
You sold it all inside a satellite
But if this soul runs out of fight can you guess what happens?
Cause your the only one in sight that could've made it happen
Whatever gets you through the night can you make it happen
Can you make it happen?
And pick those points to pleat
Adds up to dissapointment
Because you're fucking shit
Has got a case to answer
You maybe right but I was told your wrong
Nothing was sharpened but the stolen one
I never knew that you could only hold
Everthings dark inside this room alone
But if this soul runs out of fight can you guess what happens?
Cause your the only one in sight that couldve made it happen
Whatever gets you through the night can you make it happen
Can you make it happen?
Just cause you were never right
You sold your soul for a satellite
And all the friends that you used to love
Have gone around tellin what youve done
I used to have you pinned
You used to work at d.js
Does it make you slimmer
Now you've got credit these days
You maybe wrong but is it worth fight?
I maybe dumb can you turn on the light
Did you know your soul was in that satellite
But if this soul runs out of fight can you guess what happens?
Cause your the only one in sight that could've made it happen
Whatever gets you through the night can you make it happen
Can you make it happen?back to top
Boltcutter
"K.O.S." said the warden when she arrived on the scene first
Heartattack, like the poet that needed another word
When they find out about recent issues
Don't be surprised that there's no one listening

Boltcutter, to break those bolts and chains
You've suffered more than anyone could take
Another person came to take your place
Another boltcutter

K-Mart, Price Collapse, and all the panels were buried
Beneath the corner of the manchester and the computers section
Where I got kidnapped and scarred
Falling from Grace was a big decision
Cos you have placed in the competition ring

Boltcutter, to break those bolts and chains
You've suffered more than anyone could take
Another person came to take your place
Another boltcutter... hey!

When you're getting old, is it better? [X4]
Now you're getting old, is it better?
When you're getting old, is it better?

You made this the competition it was never meant to be
Because of opportunist students
And if there was a pride, it was within yourself
Follow that road to the oldest city
Give me that rope and I'll show you how to swing

Boltcutter, to break those bolts and chains
You've suffered more than anyone could take
Another person came to take your place
Another boltcutter, hey!back to top
No Reason
If u got the rhyme and u got the reason,
Somebody autta really tell u,
that u've run outta all ur answers and the lines are on the table.

But u could go, down so low,
No-one'll eva hear u call,
I've got no reason

U could, have had
all of my love
I'd, give it straight back
if its enough
I, need u, to see,
that ur the one for me!

Could've tried all the time to tell u,
that u've run outta all ur answers
its not really ammunition
its a cause for a celebration.

But, we could go, down so low,
no-one'll eva see us fall.
I've got no reason

U could, have had
all of my love
I'd, give it straight back
if its enough
I, need u, to see,
that ur the one for me!

I've got no reason,
I've got no reason,
I've got no reason,
I've got no reason!

If u got the rhyme and u got the reason,
Somebody autta really tell u,
that u've run outta ammuntion,
its a cause for a celebration.

But, we could go, down so low,
no-one'll eva hear us call,
I've got no reason.

I've got no reason,
I've got no reason,
I've got no reason,
I've got no reason!back to top
Killswitch
despite all all of the negatives
i still get up and yeah i still get down
no reason i'm made of positives and all you fuckers cannot turn me round
i like to watch you watch yourself
turn that killswitch on yourself
like to watch you watch
find out your wishing me through
you act
like you
have been here before
no-one
wants to
tell you your adored
you act
like you
have been here before
celebrate all of the positives
and everything will work itself out fine
wrong season i'm made of negatives
cause all you people see are dollar signs.back to top

Hate
Woke up to find you weary,
Left hand was in the red room,
My, my our thoughts were black then,
So does it make a difference you,
Always by my side, always by my side.

Ghosts in the blue floor new room,
Controlling students.
Hey, hey the glitter girl gown,
So does it make a difference, your,
Never going to change, always be the same.
And I'll, hate you everyday, hate you everyday.

Wait for the reasons to change,
I know no better.
You could do anything but,
Just don't say whatever, your
Always by my side, always by my side,
And I'll, love you everyday, it's never going to change.

Woke up to find you weary,
Left hand was in the red room,
My, my our thoughts were black then.
So does it make a difference you,
Always by my side, always by my side.
And I'll, hate you everyday, hate you everyday.
Cause your, never going to change,
Always be the same.

It's so good to be in love again.back to top
