all Mansun lyrics



Take It Easy Chicken
Yes I'm sick of this
England's shit
It's slashing down
We are drowned
Star is here
Drinking beer
Star is scrawled
On my wall
C.i.d.
They follow me
I kidnap star
In my car
A t.v.r.
We'll drive to prague
And stop at mars
And we'll be

Taking star, oh yeah, to l.a.
We'll drive to vegas for the day
We want to sit, oh yeah, in the sun
And take it easy
Take it easy

Mam's got cake
Belly ache
Feeling sick
Through kuwait
Stole a tank
Drove to france
Star's amazed
In a trance
M53
Hit a tree
Crashed my car
I killed star
Stowaway
On a ship
Dodge the pigs
What a tripback to top
Everyone Must Win
We cold boot the brain stem
We start to get pissed
We're turning into creatures
That hardly ever exist

And every one of us must win at last
Like in the future, like in the past
Every one of us must win at last
And every one of us must win at last
Like in the future, like in the past
Every one of us must win at last

We're gross and fundamental
And we're stuck by fairy lights
We throw ourselves off the edge
Of an intricate appetite

We're a wonderland
We're a merry-go-round
And the morning after
We're garbage on the groundback to top
Closed for Business
Roll on up and queue in line
All you need is here
Absurdity is what you see
Can't match the state you're in

All things are flawed to me
Stick with the things that you know
Buy what you want from me
Hope was the one thing I sold

Say what you can't say, I'll never know
Don't wanna know, what you really sold
Say what you can't say, I'll never know
Don't wanna know, what you really sold
It's been a bad day
Closed for business, I'm going home

Tasteless gas that comes in cans
Why should I be stoned
For selling things to heal your sins
And make your sorrows goback to top
Ski Jump Nose
I'm gonna sit on my own, maybe all alone
I'm gonna lie on the couch, 'cos I won't go out
She'll take it easy again, ending up in hell
Just like the scum of the earth, but I'll crash here first

We're all in this together
Ski jump nose forever

Yeah, say we're gonna keep it together
Yeah, say we're gonna keep it together
Yeah, I don't wanna talk about it

She's gonna get herself out from her plastic town
She's gonna get out her house, gonna get down south
She'll take it easy again, she'll end up in hell
She's only playing the game, change her name again

I'm writing these words like the fool that I am
Trying to say something good like the person
But it's all just a sham 'cos the writer I am not
Could say anything, you'd believe them
Just your a-typical boy-girl-girl-boy androgynous
Play on a publican's decoy
'cos I had to drop out 'cos my art school was sad and
If you believe all of that you're a bigger fool than me

Glad you're tuned to ski jump nose, so come on down and
Hide our shame, you love, you love the fameback to top
Can't Afford to Die
Fingers severed on a mirrors edge
Isolated with no respect
Conversation has been replaced
Punctured slowly ideas escape
My possessions are all I have
One man's medicine poisons man
My subconscious knowledge safe

In my coma, in my coma again
In my coma, in my coma again, again
In my coma, in my coma again

Get respectable faces donned
Turn blind eyes to what's gone on
Slowly leak ideas through
Would you recognise I knew
Used expressions to converse
In my coma I do not hurt
Feel much better but I'm still not curedback to top
Railings
I'll press my face up to your railings
I'll listen, you've still got a little unused pain
A little hurt
A little further

Don't burn your hand on the window
If you just want to take in the view
Don't you bend my wicked mind
With your mumbo-jumbo torture
If it's all the same to you
It's all the same...

Here we are, we're here forever
We're gone tomorrow, why I might not even bother
But you're lovely and dark
It's getting darker now

You press your face to my railings
I've still got a little unused pain
I'll shoot you down
With my good-luck paradox
With my teeth and my brain
With my teeth and my brain

My death, it's holy and awesome
It's as common as muck on a spade
I'm not afraid now
I'm not afraid nowback to top
Flourella
Wake up flower, you're smelling of roses
Drawing posies to keep in a hole in your floor
Oh yeah, oh yeah, keep it in a hole
Keep your gear in a bin in your kitchen
Thelma viaduct lives in a hole in your lid
Oh yeah, oh yeah, keep it in a hole

I don't want your cold
So keep your hands across your nose
You've become a state
A total waste of space
No, no, no

We, we need a decision from you tonight, oh yeah
We need you to tell us that we are right, oh yeah
We need you to tell us that we, that we are right

Wake up flower, you're smelling of daiseys
Cardiac heartache will tell me you're lazy, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, tell me that you're lazy
All white trash tonight my beauty
Skinima nosebreak is having a bad day, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, having such a bad day

We're only the band
We're only the band for you, yeahback to top
Decisions, Decisions
These monkey faces are laughing at me
Easy, one of life's rejections anyway, yeah
I wanted to be beautiful

My big decisions are going the flow
Easy, we were always losers anyway, yeah
Sitting on the fence again

All my big decisions always ruin my life
Gets harder with time
All my big decisions make me act like a child
Decisions decisions all the time

Not content to be one of life's spectators
I gravitate to all those stiffs and geeks, yeah
Life is entertaining me
Hurting strangers was easy
My weakness, my electric man is taking over me, yeah
I just brought him out again

All my big decisions always ruin my life
Gets harder with time
All my big decisions make me act like a child
Decisions decisions all the time

I want you to stay
I want you to go
I can't make up my mind
It's driving me mad
I'm going the flow
I can't even decide

All my big decisions always ruin my life
Gets harder with time
All my big decisions make me act like a child
Decisions decisions all the time

I want you to stay
I want you to go
I can't make up my mind
It's driving me mad
I'm going the flow
I can't even decide
No, no, no, no yeah...

I want you to stay
I want you to go
Yeah, no, oh, yeah, oh
It's driving me mad
I'm going the flow
Oh, yeah, ow...back to top
Been Here Before
So what do I believe in
I walked away from a million gods
To keep me safe from dying

I'm sure I've been here once before
I'm sure I've been here once before

I'll end up where I begin
I'll get back here in the end
I'll end up where I begin

So what do I believe in
I believe everything I read
Helps me make excusesback to top
My Idea of Fun
Day one, concentrate my energy
My victim's loser personality
Explain what it is that turns me on
Keep a wall to strip my little piggies on

Keeping control while indulging in duality

This is my idea of fun, I hope I'm not the only one
I'm having fun here, I hope I'm not the only one

Day two, I wake up in another bed
Next to a member of the cabinet
Day three, I pinned a note against his head
This death of a filthy fucking hypocrit

Keeping control while indulging in banality

This is my idea of fun, I hope I'm not the only one
I'm having fun here, I hope I'm not the only one
This is my idea of fun, I hope I'm not the only one
I'm having fun here, I hope I'm not the only one

Day four, why'd you keep seducing me
Brainwashed from masculine deficiency
Day five, injecting supermarket food
No pain, it hurts who knows, you never knew

Playing it cool, breaking every single wrong taboo

This is my idea of fun, I hope I'm not the only one
I'm having fun here, I hope I'm not the only one
This is my idea of fun, I hope I'm not the only one
I'm having fun here, I hope I'm not the only one

Day six, I travel on the underground
Freak out, your mind will lie in chinatown
Mayhem from broxbourne to the irish sea
Aloud, the answer's welled with empathy

Keeping control while indulging in duality

This is my idea of fun, I hope I'm not the only one
I'm having fun here, I hope I'm not the only one
This is my idea of fun, I hope I'm not the only one
I'm having fun here, I hope I'm not the only oneback to top
When the Wind Blows
Wireless tells us all
Looks like there's a war
Both of us been through this before dear
Put on our gas masks and pray dear
But at least we've got each other

I'll still love you when the wind blows through
I've been through this before
I'll still love you when the wind
When the wind blows through

Outside all is cold
It looks like there's no war
But my hair's falling out at it's root dear
Things will blow over any day dear
And at least we've got each otherback to top
Check Under the Bed
You see my fear looks like laughter
That's why you'll never hear me scream
And I'm learning to rule in my simian shoes
Tradition has absorbed the sickest things
(another fear looks like laughter)

And they're grabbing with paws
Somewhere I am not safe
In their animal's place
Claustrophobia maze
Ideology faked for a simian race

Trip me up
I become a nervous wreck
Put me in a padded cage
And I call it my domain
With my shoelace trip me up
I become a nervous wreck
Put me in a padded cage
And I call it my domain

I know my fear looks like laughter
That's why you'll never see me scream
And I'm learning to rule in my simian shoes
Tradition has absorbed the sickest things
(another fear looks like laughter)back to top
Skin Up Pin Up
Sniffalys, sniff on this
My skin up pin up, oh yeah
Monday to friday, nobody's seen ya'
Amphetamina

Oh, if I see you would you stop and say hello
Oh, if I kiss you would you run straight up my nose
Oh, skeletina say hello

We'll take you all on again

Sniffalys, put on this
My skin up pin up, oh yeah
Pick up a lady, tin foil in waiting
Stops me from aching

He's my only passion, oh yeah
He's my only passion, no yeahback to top
I Care
I hang glass from the wall, it makes my life seem big
Mirrors hang from my wall, to make my world seem big

You forced me to do things I wasn't aware of
And this is our secret and everyone does this
My future is written in closed circuit evidence
Me and my self-denial will keep you from justice and free

I wriggle and squirm as you try to convince me
And everyone stares, they know what I've been up to
The pressure engulfing me, memories orbiting me
Fits epiletic in waves leaping over me

No contact of flesh and no tongues and no touching
No fear of disease and I can't take my clothes off
I want to get fucked like a whore in a porno, it's me
Don't tell anybody, it's our dirty secret, it's me

I will protect you and shield you, prevent you from danger
You've intruded and taken away all my sweetness
But somehow these mirrors they make my existence seem bigger
Somehow these mirrors they make my existence seem biggerback to top
The World's Still Open
Quiet morning nothing moves and
We can hear you breathe
Early morning the roads are clear and
All you hear, and all you hear is me

They don't ever go to sleep
They don't have the time to keep
Time to keep

The world's still open while we're all asleep
And they don't really care
And maybe all the shops have closed their doors
And gone into their little homes

Kicking bottles and moving things
To make us feel confused
Leaving clues for us to find
The things that they, the things that they have used

I'm sure I heard you talking
I'm sure you sent them to bug me
They will never be sent homeback to top
I Can Only Disappoint U
I travelled from dublin, you said you'd change the world
You sing like sinatra, always
You pulled 'em for miles now, like garbo in berlin
You played 'em for zeroes, just like always
Tonight, some bitch is hassling me
And tonight, it feels so good feeling cheap

I can only disappoint you 'cos I always let you down
I can only disappoint you 'cos I always let you down

You turned a man cuckoo, half animal, half grace
The chick was a teaser, always
Tonight, their hips will swivel and turn
So we drove, to the place where we first met

I can only disappoint you 'cos I always let you down
I can only disappoint you, always

The queens they all loved you, the tall, the short, the fair
The sailors, the psychos, always
And here, I faltered, gun in my hand
And you, with piggies scrawled on your wall
And tonight, her note said better off dead
And the earth has never moved for me since

I can only disappoint you 'cos I always let you down
I can only disappoint you, always
I can only disappoint you 'cos I always let you down
I can only disappoint you 'cos I always let you down
'cos I always let you down
'cos I always let you down

'cos I always let you down
'cos I always let you down
('cos I always let you down) 'cos I always let you down
'cos I always let you down
'cos I always let you down
'cos I always let you down
'cos I always let you downback to top
Love Is...
Love is everything I want, I never knew it
Love is everything I seek, just realise
That the obvious is hard to find, I never saw it
Something's right there in your face, you look and...

Love is mine, I'm too selfish
But I got no time, it's essential life
Love is mine (love is powerful), love is powerful
Solitude gets dull with time
Love is mine, I'm too selfish
But I got no time (it's essential that love is mine), it's essential
That love is mine (love is powerful), love is powerful
Solitude gets dull with time

Love is everything I crave, ashamed to say it
Love is everything I've missed, I've dropped my guard
But love is so essential though I'll never have it
Love will be the death of me, you look and...

Love is mine, I'm too selfish
But I got no time, it's essential life
Love is mine (love is powerful), love is powerful
Solitude gets dull with time
Love is mine, I'm too selfish
But I got no time (it's essential that love is mine), it's essential
That love is mine (love is powerful), love is powerful
Solitude gets dull with time

Love is precious and it's scarce, I'll never find it
Love will save us all but will cause all my problems
Love is so frustating but I've got to have it
Love it has no rationale but still I chase it
The look and...

Love is mine, I'm too selfish
'cos I've got no time, it's essential that
Love is mine, love is powerful
Solitude gets dull with time
Love is mine, I'm too selfish
But I got no time (it's essential that love is mine), it's essential
That love is mine (love is powerful), love is powerful
Love is powerful (love is powerful), in lifeback to top
