The Everlasting
The gap that grows between our lives
The gap our parents never had
Stop those thoughts control your mind
Replace the things that you despise
Oh you're old I hear you say
It doesn't mean that I don't care
I don't believe in it anymore
Pathetic acts for a worthless cause

In the beginning when we were winning
When our smiles were genuine
In the beginning when we were winning
When our smiles were genuine
But now unforgiven the everlasting
Everlasting

The world is full of refugees
They're just like you and just like me
But as people we have a choice
To end the void with all it's force
So don't forget or don't pretend
It's all the same now in the end
It was set in a different life
Destroys my days and haunts my nights?

In the beginning when we were winning
When our smiles were genuine
In the beginning when we were winning
When our smiles were genuine
But now unforgiving the everlasting
Everlasting
Now unforgiving, the everlasting
Everlastingback to top
You Stole The Sun From My Heart
Drinking - water to stay thin or is it to purify
I love you all the same

But there's no - no real truce with my fury you don't have to believe me
I love you all the same

But you stole the sun from my heart
You stole the sun from my heart
You stole the sun from my heart
You stole the sun from my heart
You stole the sun from my heart

You have - broken through my armour and I don't have an answer
I love you all the same

I paint - the things I want to see but it don't come easy
I love you all the same

But you stole the the sun from my heart
You stole the sun from my heart

Think I'm - lost amongst the undergrowth so much so I woke up
I love you all the same

But you stole the the sun from my heart
You stole the sun from my heart

I have - I've got to stop smiling it gives the wrong impression
I love you all the sameback to top
Ready For Drowning
Here's a true story
Said someone to me yesterday
Said he'd heard it in a taxi
Must have had him at my mercy
Drown that poor thing put it out of it's misery
Condemn it to it's future deny it's history - deny it's history

So where are we going we're not ready for drowning
So where are we going we're not ready for drowning

Look through my venetian blinds
Dusting the past off my mind
Seeing orange everywhere
I'd go to patagonia but it's harder there
I'll do anything to prove I care
Fascinated by good
Destroyed by evil what is there to believe in

So where are we going we're not ready for drowning
So where are we going we're not ready for drowning
So where are we going we're not ready for drowning
So where are we going we're not waving we are drowningback to top
Tsunami
For you my dear sister
Holding onto me forever
Disco dancing with the rapists
Your only crime is silence

Can't work at this anymore
Can't move I want to stay at home
Tied up to all these crutches
Never far from your hands

Tsunami tsunami came washing over me
Tsunami tsunami came washing over me
Can't speak, can't think, won't talk, won't walk

Doctors tell me that I'm cynical
I tell them that it must be chemical
So what am I doing girl
Cry into my drink I disappear

Eyes for teeth waving over me
Bring down the shadows of my mind
Sleep and breathe under our sheets
Inhale the anxiety in-between, in-between, in-between, in-between

Tsunami tsunami came washing over me
Tsunami tsunami came washing over me
Tsunami tsunami came washing over me
Tsunami tsunami came washing over me
Through september under the weather

In-between, in-between, in-between, in-between

Tsunami tsunami came washing over me
Tsunami tsunami came washing over me
Tsunami tsunami came washing over me
Tsunami tsunami came washing over me
Take the gi's I will have the spiesback to top
My Little Empire
My little empire has risen and it's set
My little empire is as good as it can get
My little empire is coming around
My little empire it don't make a sound

My royalty it does not exist
It is extinct for the eye to see
My ideology it is dead and gone
Almost forgotten for the eye to see

My little empire I'm sick of being sick
My little empire I'm tired of being tired
My little empire I'm bored of being bored
My little empire I'm happy being sad

All of my sins are attempts to fill the voids
All of my voids they are filled with sin
All of my demons they are kept within
And all my violence it does not exist

My little empire I'm happy being sad
My little empire I'm fucked with being fucked
My little empire I'm done with being dumb
My little empire I'm happy being sad

Happy being sad happy being sad happy being sadback to top
I'm Not Working
Petrified for the millionth time
Slowly my soul evaporates
No parachutes no dismal clouds
Just this fucking space

I know what's coming I'm not working
I know what's coming I'm not working

Sweating out intelligence
Like I don't know what it is
Clinging to the microwaves
And singing with the sound-waves
I know what's coming I'm not working
I know what's coming I'm not working

Delerium on helium
I am my own experience

I know what's coming I'm not working
I know what's coming I'm not working
I'm not working I'm not working I'm not workingback to top
You're Tender And You're Tired
You're so fragile tonight
Been up hurting all night
It's not trivial like they think
Yes you're desperate and you're hurt

Thought about it so many times
Too afraid to open your eyes
To see the sadness that's inside
Just sit back in and stop time

You're tender and you're tired
You can't be bothered to decide
Whether you live or die
Or just forget about your life

But it's too late to be real
No time to be strong enough
Just time to leave it all behind
Memory has become pain

Rebuild the void with flowers
Sad eyed destruction build around sand and sea
Yes you can build your yourself around
Build yourself around me, yourself around me

You're tender and you're tired
You can't be bothered to decide
Whether you live or die
Or just forget about your life

You're tender and you're tired
You can't be bothered to decide
Whether you live or die
Or just forget about your life

You're tender and you're tired
You can't be bothered to decide
Whether you live or die
Or just forget about your life

You're tender and you're tired
You can't be bothered to decide
Whether you live or die
Or just forget about your life
Drift away and die
Never say goodbye
Drift away and die
Never say goodbye
Drift away and die
Never say goodbye
Drift away and dieback to top
Born A Girl
Do I look good for you tonight
Will you accuse me as I hide
Behind these layers of disguise
In the mirrors of my own happiness

I've loved the freedom of being inside
Need a new start and a different time
Something grows in the space between me
And it's twisting and changing this fragile body

And I wish I had been born a girl instead of what I am
Yes I wish I had been born a girl and not this mess of a man
And not this mess of a man
And not this mess of a man

The censorship of my skin
Is screaming inside and from within
There's no room in this world for a girl like me
And place around there where I fit in

And I wish I had been born a girl instead of what I am
Yes I wish I had been born a girl and not this mess of a man
And not this mess of a man
And not this mess of a man
And not this mess of a man
And not this mess of a manback to top
Be Natural
Been natural for once in my life
Now I'll have to swallow some pride
Know that I should never give advice
But it's too late now to say goodbye

Be natural don't want any friends
Be natural come on and hit me again
Be natural I'm repeating myself
Be natural is there anything else

Starbright keep me safe - today and tonight
No water tastes like lemonade
Slowly slowly it starts to fade

Be natural with me tonight
Be natural put your fists in my eyes
Be natural so turn me to stone
Be natural just leave me alone

Grown up or backwards born
Into eternity and blackholes
Floating around up here on my own
Screaming at me forever unknown

Been natural been natural been natural
Been natural - is there anyone elseback to top
Black Dog On My Shoulder
There's a black dog on my shoulder again
Licking my neck and saying she's my friend
Solitude the one thing that I really miss
Guess my life is a compromise

There's a black dog on my shoulder again
I'm playing with it but it's gone to my head
Like carlito's way there are no exit signs
Freeze me there until I am numb

My mouth is so dry
My eyes are shut tight
There's a black dog a coming tonight
Black dog's a coming tonight

My dilemma but not my choice
Winston churchill can you hear my voice
Melodrama there in my kitchen sink
Double vision the way it is

Am I coming home to you again
Or am I stupid just by design
Does it matter if you really ever know
This black dog is out of control

My mouth is so dry
My eyes are shut tight
There's a black dog a coming tonight
Black dog's a coming tonight

Am I coming home to you again
Or am I stupid just by design
Does it matter if you really ever know
This black dog is out of control

My mouth is so dry
My eyes are shut tight
There's a black dog a coming tonight
Black dog's a coming tonightback to top
Nobody Loved You
What's your story baby
No control of what I am saying
Winter leaves still make me believe
No vendettas, just a cherry blossom tree

Never had the chance to take you home
Now there's no reason just another tomorrow
You keep giving me your free air miles
What would I give just for one of your smiles
Just for one of your smiles

Nobody loved you - nobody made you feel so alone
Nobody loved you - no no
Nobody loved you - nobody made you feel so alone
Nobody loved you - no no

Let me turn down all these lights
And sit with me then you can hold me tight
Give me some more of your carrier bags
And let me dream of a new autumn light

Tell me your story baby
What's your poison and what is your honey
You've stopped me hurting but so much disorder
Winter flowers did you ever forgive her
Did you ever forgive her

Nobody loved you - nobody made you feel so alone
Nobody loved you - no no

Cherry blossom tree - but at least you are free
Nobody loved you - like me

It's unreal now you're gone - but at least you belong
Nobody loved you - no no

What's your story baby
No control of what I am saying
Winter leaves still make me believe
No vendettas, just a cherry blossom tree
Just a cherry blossom treeback to top
S.Y.M.M.
The subtext of this song
I've thought about it for so long
But it's really not the sort of thing
That people want to hear us sing

The context of this song
Well I could go on and on
But it's still unfashionable
To believe in principles

South South Yorkshire - mass murderer
How can you sleep at night, sleep at night

South South Yorkshire - mass murderer
How can you sleep at night, sleep at night

The reason for this song
Well maybe it's a pointless one
But thank you Jimmy McGovern
For reminding me of what lives on

The ending for this song
Well I haven't really thought of one
There's nothing I could ever say
That could really take the pain away

South South Yorkshire - mass murderer
How can you sleep at night, sleep at night
South South Yorkshire - mass murderer
How can you sleep at night, sleep at nightback to top
