Big Distraction
You're my concentration
Everything else is a bore
I've got myself snagged on you
No self-control

Now all that I want do
Sleep in the shadow of you
For the rest of my life

Now I can chisel
Chisel and build a bomb
A pain deposited
From past scars

'cause the memories they can sleep
And we can live comfortably
For the rest of my life

Wrong or right
Shipwrecked into you
Situation is foolish
But I will fight

You're my big distraction
Or biggest companion
I'm falling fast
Like an avalanche

Indentured servant
A slave to a slave
Thank God for my hopeful heart
And for mutual feelings

Well look how it's balanced now
Maybe we'll just settle down
For the rest of our lives

Wrong or right
Shipwrecked into you
Situation is foolish
But I will fight

You're my big distraction
Or biggest companion
I'm falling fast
Like an avalanche

Look how it's balanced now
Maybe we'll just settle down
For the rest of our lives

Wrong or right
Shipwrecked into you
Situation is foolish
But I will fight

You're my big distraction
Or biggest companion
I'm falling fast
Like an avalanche

You're my big distraction
Or biggest companion
I'm falling fast
Like an avalancheback to top
Leftovers
Thinking what should I do
Now I don't have you
Facing my demotion
I'm just a fish in your ocean
Has been, that's what I am
With my backstage wristband
Freaking seconds of you
That's not what I'm used to

Feed, feed 'em all to me
Careful with my stuff
What's your policy?
First one's free

I save 'em up, I put 'em in my pocket
I save 'em up, put 'em in a jar
I save 'em up, I'm gonna need 'em for later
I save 'em up, then they'll go real far

Hand me downs, the takedowns
I take the leftovers
Cold ones and the old ones
Better than no ones

Feed, feed 'em all to me
Careful with my stuff
What's your policy?
First one's free

I save 'em up, I put 'em in my pocket
I save 'em up, put 'em in a jar
I save 'em up, I need 'em for later
I save 'em up, then they'll go real far

I time it out, gotta be real careful
I time it out, get 'em right on time
I time it out, I get 'em when I need 'em
Time is up, what's left is over

It's over
I can never have enough
Oh, I can never have enough
I sure am greedy
Hand 'em over to me

Nothing's free

I save 'em up, I put 'em in my pocket
I save 'em up, put 'em in a jar
I save 'em up, gonna need 'em for later
I save 'em up, then they'll go real far

I time it out, I'll be real careful
I time it out, get 'em right on time
I time it out, I get 'em when I need 'em
Time is up, what's left is over

Oh, I need 'em,
Yeah, I need 'em
Because I need 'em
Time is up, what's left is over
I time it out, I time it out
Because I need 'em, I really need 'em

What should I do, now I don't have you?
I really need 'em, I really need 'em
Hand me downs, the takedowns
I take the leftoversback to top
Under Construction
His accent serenades me
And presses at the door
Broken promise to be
Around for my mind war

And my accomplishment's interrogating me
Today's become tomorrow
Before I wanted it to be
And desperate discussions
The start of the destruction

Our sign, in my mind
I'll be fine
I'll be fine

'cause I'm under construction everyone
So you'll have to mind the mess
I'm under some construction

I always had to try harder
I never really could keep up
Sitting in the corner
With my illness and bad luck

But in this humble place I'm feeling like red wine
And I hope to get better
With some time
I'll be fine
With some time
I'll be fine

'cause I'm under construction everyone
So you'll have to mind the mess
I'm under some construction

Confection
Modification
Motivation
Of construction

And the rituals that soothe
And disgust me will be gone
With some time
I'll be fine
With some time
I'll be fine
I'll be fine

I'm under construction everyone
So you'll have to mind the mess
I'm under some construction

I'm under construction everyone
So you'll have to mind the mess
I'm under some construction

Under construction
Construction
Feel better with some constructionback to top
Beauty Contest
Damsel in distress is quite submissive
Look how somber my vanity is
A feminine human creature
Superficial, seducing detour

I'm going to the mall for the cookie cutter
The ugly duckling will always suffer
Contaminated standards, I try to fight it
I better get back on my diet

Obsessed with the beauty contest
Beauty contest
How'd my vanity get such a mess?
Beauty contest
I'm obsessed

Reduce myself, I got the strict restrictions
Not sexy enough without the regulations
A melting point countdown the fading features
Born to blossom and bloom to perish

Obsessed with the beauty contest
Beauty contest
Oh, I've got to get out of this mess
Beauty contest
I'm obsessed

And I've fallen, I can't help myself
I'm feeling envious of all the rest
You're bringing out the lemming in me
A victim of the cattle call disease
Not easy to be me

I feel swollen

Obsessed with the beauty contest
Beauty contest
How'd my vanity get such a mess?
Obsessed with the beauty contest

Obsessed with the beauty contest
Beauty contest
I've got to get out of this mess
Obsessed with the beauty contest

Obsessed with the beauty contest
Beauty contest
How'd my vanity get such a mess?
Caught up in the beauty contest
Caught up in the beauty contest
Caught up in the beauty contest
Caught up in the beauty contest
Caught up in the beauty contest

And I feel swollen
How'd my vanity get such a mess?
My vanity's a messback to top
Full Circle
All I've ever touched or said to them
Becomes a rehearsal for you, just practicing,
Too many magic moments to be coincidence
It all comes full circle

I knew someone who knew you
And he introduced me to you
Your ex-girlfriend had a boyfriend
Who kissed my girlfriend
Who did adrian

The world keeps on getting smaller and smaller
And everything comes back full circle, full circle
Six degrees of separation
We all know someone else
It all comes full circle

And you come from england
My ex-boyfriend, he is indian
British passport, we're all connected
And everyone else is affected

The world keeps on getting smaller and smaller
And everything comes back full circle, full circle
Six degrees of separation
We all know someone else
It all comes full circle
It all comes full circle

The world keeps on getting smaller and smaller
And everything comes back full circle, full circle
Six degrees of separation
We all know someone else
It all comes full circle

The world keeps on getting smaller and smaller
And everything comes back full circle, full circle
Six degrees of separation
We all know someone else
It all comes full circleback to top
Cellophane Boy
And I'm not the judge or the referee
And I can't accept, 'cause I am uptight
And the smoke screen into my eyes are burning
My concern is I just might get a new life

And I can't relate to the hypnotist
And I can't get close, 'cause of plastic wrap
And I want to have kids, but their father's up inside the clouds
The distance between us on my mind

Up until now things have been fine, temporarily
You're cute, but the circumstances have changed
Your substitution method crutch
Your whole protection from your fame
There's presentation on my ploy
Is to change my cellophane boy

Oh, it's not the 70s
Let your future fly with me

Up until now things have been fine, temporarily
You're cute, but the circumstances have changed
Your substitution method crutch
Your whole protection from your fame
There's presentation on my ploy
Is to change my cellophane boy

And I want your habit to be me
Your harbor and your refugeeback to top
You're So Foxy
You caught my fall making out on alcohol
An innocent mistake
And falling in love on accident, I didn't mean to

Constant danger, constant stranger
It started out so sweet
And now we're both feeling incomplete
I don't know how much I can take
We're on, we're off

We're knocked down and getting up
We try to fight it, the agony and ecstasy
And it's painful, but it's worth it
Coz you're so foxy and I think you're kinda good for me
You're so foxy

Mental earthquakes, conversation mistakes
My army of words
I can't belive you're crawling back for more out of desire

Destiny or chemicals, emotions are susceptible
And you I can't resist
I can't seem to walk away from this
So show me how much you can take, are you in or out?

You're knocked down and getting up
You kinda like it, the agony and ecstasy
And it's painful, I'm sorry
But you're so foxy, I can't let you get away from me
Coz you're so foxy

So get out of my way, I'm feeling so in love today
It can't be understood
And when we're feeling good it's really good
The kind of good that feels like fate
We're back and forth

We're knocked down and getting up
We try to fight it, the agony and ecstasy
And it's painful but it's your fault
Coz you're so foxy and you got yourself all over me
You're so foxy

And I can't take it, it's hard to take it
I can't take it
It's painful but it's worth it
Coz you're so foxy
I think you must be good for meback to top
Panic
Today is going to be easy
Today coz you're not around
I'll leave off my makeup
I'll sleep in my bed
To pass all the time by

Today coz you're not around
Today you won't be around

I concentrate on empty spaces
A passive pondering of blankess
Sit down shut up, controlled obsessions
Your absence it exhausts me

I always panic when I'm left
I always panic when I'm left

Today I feel destructive
Today who cares about myself?
I'll live in denial
And I'll beat up my head
And I'll eat all the chocolate
Today coz you're not around
Today you won't be around

I can't control my feelings
I sip on dreams and choke on real things
Detach myself for preservation
I struggle to not want you

I always panic when I'm left
Is it healthy that we met?
If you stop coming will I forget?
I always panic

Today is going to be simple
Today coz you're not around
My heart will pound lazy
No one to impress
No smile is required
Today coz you're not around
Today you won't be aroundback to top
New Friend
Mind my own business, I'm on my journey
And I have enough old friends to keep me company
But you say "Hey what's up, you want to hook up?
You wanna hang out with me?
Kick back, relax, feel happy and lazy"

You're sent to me one time
You come to me two times
Why me? Three times
Well abracadabra now I've got a new friend

Let me introduce you to my new friend
Whoa, I got a new friend
Let me introduce you to my new friend
Whoa, I got a new friend

Mind my own business, I'm on my journey

I against I on my journey
Happily interrupted extremes are extreme
So with my brand new friend we touch the boundaries
Like a little kitty's whiskers, cautiously

Experimental expressions and downward looks
You come sniff around, I'm not sure what to do
But like a big explosion, magically
Look at me I think I might have found a new friend

Let me introduce you to my new friend
Whoa, I got a new friend
Let me introduce you to my new friend
Whoa, I got a new friend

You're sent to me one time
You come to me two times
Why me? Three times
Serial monogamy, I got a new friend...

In my head, it's only in my head...back to top
Everything in Time (London)
Everything I do
Everything is you

Cinderella hope
And it's all because you made me laugh
Coincidence or fate
Running towards a catastrophe

And everything I choose
Everything for you
And everything always in time will come
And I believe it's all for a reason

She asked how we are
She asked if I was all weird again
And of course I am
But I'm trying really really hard
So I lied to her
And I was wearing this prisoner face
So deep inside she had to know
I'm feeling lost inside the low

Everything always in time will come

Lying in your bed
I am a refugee you try to love
Am I wasting all of your time
And all my cute days on regret?
Is it healthy that we met?

Everything always in time will come

Is it wrong holding on
To my best friend, my faded lover?
Who knows?

Coincidence or fate
Running towards what is meant to be
Save me

Everything always in time will show
Then we will know, it will show
Everything always in time will come
And I believe for everything there is a reason
And everything always in time will...

Everything I do
Everything is youback to top
Sailin' On
You don't want me anymore
So I walk through the door
I play the game right from the start
I trust you, you use me, now my life's all torn apart

So I'm sailing, yeah I'm sailing on
I'm moving, yeah I'm moving on
Sail on, sail on, sail on, sail on

Tried to see if I'll give up
But there wasn't any luck
It's a fact, a fact of life
That's the game, game of strife everything is all in stride

So I'm sailing, yeah I'm sailing on
I'm moving, yeah I'm moving on
Sail on, sail on, sail on, sail on

So I'm sailing, yeah I'm sailing on
I'm moving, yeah I'm moving on
Sail on, sail on, sail on, sail on

Too many years with too many tears
And too many days with none to say
So how will we know when there's nowhere to grow
The fact of life, life too short oh

There's too many years with too many tears
There's too many days with none to say no, no
So how will we know when there's nowhere to grow
The fact of life, the fact of life yeah

Too many years with too many tears
And too many days with none to say
So how will we know when there's nowhere to grow
The fact of life, life too short ohback to top
Oi to the World
Haji was a punk just like any other boy
And he never had no trouble till he started up his oi band
Safe in the garage or singing in the tub
Till haji went too far and he plugged in at the pub

'twas a cold christmas eve when trevor and the skins
Popped in for a pint and to nick a back of crisps
Trevor liked the music but not the unity
He unwound haji's turban and he knocked him to his knees

If God came down on christmas day
I know exactly what he'd say
He'd say oi to the punks and oi to the skins-
But oi to the world and everybody wins!

Haji was a bloody mess, he ran out through the crowd
He said we'll meet again we are bloody but not unbowed
Trevor called his bluff and told him where to meet
Christmas day on the roof down at 20 oxford street

If God came down on christmas day
I know exactly what he'd say
He'd say oi to the punks and oi to the skins
But oi to the world and everybody wins!

On the roof with the nun chucks trevor broke a lot of bones
But haji had a sword like that guy in indiana jones

Police sirens wailing, a bloody dying man
Haji was alone and abandoned by his band
Trevor was there fading and still so full of hate
When the skins left him there and went down the fire escape
Oi! oi!

But then haji saw the north star shining more then ever
So he made a tourniquet from his turban saving trevor
They repelled down the roof with the rest of the turban
And went back to the pub where they bought each other bourbon

If God came down on christmas day
I know exactly what he'd say
He'd say oi to the punks and oi to the skins-
But oi to the world and everybody wins!

If God came down on christmas day
I know exactly what he'd say
He'd say oi to the punks and oi to the skins-
But oi to the world and everybody wins!
Oi! oi!back to top
I Throw My Toys Around
I've got no time for fairy stories
I'm not a little girl
So you can leave me all alone
And turn off the lights as well

If you are frightened
Then listen
But I don't think you'd like it
Such a nice kid

Nobody's looking' now
I'll throw my toys around

Somebody's being very bad
I wonder who it can be
Somebody's gonna get in trouble
I know it isn't me

I'm just a little angel
But you don't know what I've done
When your back's turned

Nobody's looking' now
I'll throw my toys around

Pick up those building blocks
Chop off the baby's locks
Swing dolly by the hair
Put down that teddy bear
Slam dunk a happy clown
I throw my toys around

I've got no time for bedtime stories
I'm not a little child
Everything makes me furious
And everything makes me wild

If you are frightened then whistle
And I'll come running' you
As you boo hoo

Nobody's looking' now
I'll throw my toys around

Nobody's looking' now
I'll throw my toys around

I throw my toys around
I'll throw my toys around
I throw my toys around
I'll throw my toys around
I throw my toys around
I'll throw my toys around
I throw my toys around
I'll throw my toys around
I throw my toys around
I'll throw my toys aroundback to top
