You slow me down There's a reason I don't hang around any longer There's a feel in town That I can't get over and over and I've been waiting for a while now Matter of time Til I'll be standing in that dream of mine It's been a while since I paid five pounds So I could go down Waiting for the morning to come back around I see now Don't get me standing where you want me to be And somehow I'm still right here Can you justify Spending money as the days go by Cause I know that you're insatiable When it comes to Buying and spending and showing me everything that your Money can buy But can you look me in the eye And tell me that you're satisfied Could you tell me anything Don't stop now They've got you everywhere they want you to be Don't tell me now I see now You've got me standing where you want me to be And somehow I'm still right here I'm still right here x4

This situation makes me lazy This excitation makes me crazy and all I can do is wait for it to pass I try to hold my tongue but my words slip right out my mouth The funny thing is that beforehand I'm sane as anything If I could only keep that while we're playing in the band I get so out of hand But I just say what comes into my head I know the reason why I can relate to you but we don't have the time When we're adding lib I don't have anything that rhymes If you could see the real me you'd change your mind I thought I'd found someone to talk to But I just found a door to walk through And there's no way to get back now Waiting in the cold for you I know it's true You know the reason why I can relate to you but we don't have the time When we're adding lib I don't have anything that rhymes If you could see the real me you'd change your mind I know the reason why I can relate to you but we don't have the time I don't have anything that rhymes If you could see the real me you'd change your mind

Wake up in the morning Feeling like a stranger Filling up my head with fear of all the danger Don't you know it's easy Easy to be terrified Easy to be influenced by what is on the outside I know it's always something different Always something new Can't see what's going on outside me Just outside of you This anxiety has got a hold of you But I know that it's not true Tell you all my secrets Cause you are my alibi Making myself see-through Jenny is a gemini Talking in a new way Somebody is listening I see the cloud's perimeter Even when it isn't glistening Glistening, glistening Nobody is listening I know it's always something different Always something new Can't see what's going inside of me Just outside of you Pacing around the bedroom Looking out the window Biting on my fingernails What if they come in though Ripping up our property Never let it get to me Living with a strong heart Never will pretend to be Anything but stronger Stronger than I used to be I could never calm down If somebody sat next to me But I'm getting better now Never gonna let you down Never gonna sacrifice What could be a better life This anxiety has got a got of you But I know that it's not true I know it's always something different Always something new Can't see what's going inside of me Just outside of you This anxiety has got a got of you But I know that it's not true This anxiety has got a got of you But I know that it's not true

In a future where the world is dark Humming sounds around the fields No one every got to turn the machines off Before they went In a bunker in the broken city Crowds of people separated by the walls No one ever wants to go outside Especially him, and he said: Keep me informed about the future Let me know what's going on outside I've been sitting in this room for one day too long I don't wanna go outside x4 Tried escaping but there's no more chemicals Tried to eat but there's no food left on the outside Tried to ask but there's no more questions He can scream but there's on one listening Radiation and poison are everywhere Cameras work but there's no one sitting at the screens Weather's gone so he's down at the waterhole Long nights in '53 he said: Keep me informed about the future Let me know what's going on outside I've been sitting in this room for one day too long I don't wanna go outside x4 All Baron Comma Dead Escape From a Ghost Hollow In a Joke Kostume Little Man Nowhere On a Plane Quiet Running Starved To Undertand Voice Withdrawn Tripple X Your own Zone '53 Long nights and long days In '53 Long nights, long days In '53 Long nights, long days '53 Long nights Long days

Close your eyes Fall asleep Dream of secrets that you keep If you want You can tell And if you don't it's just as well Everyday, every morning we wake up In our beds When we leave 'cross the sea Make sure you stand closer to me this time This time This time This time And I, I wanna feel this way always It happens once a day these days I know I do All the things that we say I used to think took away From the moments of our days But now I know it's okay I lay in bed, close my eyes And in time I realise All the things that we said could have been misread Misread Misread Misread And I, I wanna feel this way always It happens once a day these days I know it's true It fills me up with things to learn Cause if I always waited my turn I would still be in the same place And I, I wanna feel this way always It happens once a day these days I know it's true It fills me up with things to learn Cause if I always waited my turn I would still be in the same place
