Lyrics

Fixer

It may be that I'm past caring
Or incapable of sharing
But each time I face you
That hateful look comes as no surprise

Am I the enemy?
Is there a better me?
I take one look and hope to God you'd say there ought to be
And you're ahead of me
I wouldn't disagree
I'm okay, I'm ripe for picking

Take care of those special needs
Don't kiss the hands that feeds
My heart's choked, I'm cut and I bleed and hey!
That could be arranged
That could be arranged
That could be arranged

It could be that I look for trouble
I don't think that I try too little
But when I come do you feel like running out?
Is that what's going on?

Am I the enemy?
Is there a better me?
I take one look and hope to God you'd say there ought to be
And you're ahead of me
I wouldn't disagree
I'm okay, I'm ripe for picking

Take care of the special needs
Don't kiss the hands that feeds
My heart's choked, I'm cut and I bleed and hey!
That could be arranged
That could be arranged
That could be arranged

It's not hard to fantasise
I put my hands across my eyes
Roll some thoughts and roll some more
Roll some
Roll some
Roll some
Yeah!
That can be arranged
That can be arranged
That can be arranged


Fits And Starts

Most people are just happy to believe
Me I need something to look forward to
Don't spin the wheel just now
It don't feel like I am done

Your false heart was painted gold
You feel pain then let it show
Don't take that jump too soon
Know where you're going to

Cause it comes in parts as fits and starts like you'd never
Know, know, know, know, know, know
Know, know, know, know, know, know
Know, know, know, know, know, know
Know, know, know, know, know, know
Yeah it comes in parts as fits and starts like you'd never know

Most people are just happy to receive
Me I need someone to take it from
Don't spin the wheel just now
It don't feel like I am done

Cause it comes in parts as fits and starts like you'd never
Know, know, know, know, know, know
Know, know, know, know, know, know
Know, know, know, know, know, know
Know, know, know, know, know, know
Know, know, know, know, know, know
Yeah it comes in parts as fits and starts like you'd never know
Know, know, like you'd never know
Know, know, like you'd never know

Know, know, know, know, know, know
Know, know, know, know, know, know
Know, know, know, know, know, know
Know, know, know, know, know, know

Know, know, know, know
Know, know, know, know

The suckers asleep
They're kissing my feet
And it's strange, oh it is strange
The part is a proud man, the luck is inside
It's escape
It's difficult to explain


At The Base Of The Fire

Were you empty when you saw me coming?
Were you hanging around at the base of the fire?
And were you twisted when you fell from the running?
And do your eyes light up at the thought of a fight?

Would you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me once before you go?
Right before we end it all there's things you ought to know
And then she told me, told me, told me, told me, told me all along the way
Right before our engines fail there's things that we could save

You and I were such a waste
You and I were soon to fail - set to fail

Could you push me with my hands at your face?
And in the morning we are bound into the waste
And she told me, told me, told me, told me, told me right as we began
Oh I would trash those building blocks - Why? Just because I can

You and I were such a waste
You and I were set to fail - set to fail

You and I were such a waste
You and I were set to fail - set to fail

Hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me right along the way
Just because you said "don't you forget me"

You and I were such a waste
You and I were set to fail - set to fail

You and I were such a waste
You and I were soon to fail - set to fail


Last Episode

You say you want me, is there a reason?
If I'm below you then there must be some
If that's your feelings then there's a weakness
If that's your weakness then mine are countless

What was I supposed to say?
That makes a difference
What am I supposed to do?
To get this off of my conscience

Contrive it in your own words
Stop saying nothing
The first to talk is the last to blame

What is it this time?
Should I pretend that I don't know you
Cause disaster weighs its own display
It just goes to show

And if I had saved all that you gave, if I'd showed no resistance
I wouldn't let it show, I couldn't let it show

What was I supposed to say?
That makes a difference
What am I supposed to do?
To get this off of my conscience

Contrive it in your own words
Stop saying nothing
The first to talk is the last to blame
The last to blame
The last to blame

And if I had saved all that you gave, if I showed no resistance
I wouldn't let it show, I couldn't let it show
Right on

What was I supposed to say?
That makes a difference
What am I supposed to do?
To get this off of my conscience

Can't drown it in your own words
Stop saying nothing
The first to talk is the last to blame

The war inside the wicked mind is looking for a place to hide
When and where you want to think it over
A vile friend saw the end, postman tells of suffering
If you ever really wanna think it over

Should you ever think it over?


Laying Down With

Is that your pocket full of nothing, are you just scared to see me?
I always thought you were trash
Now you're tucked up for the night, why don't you turn out the light?
I'll only hit you when you're looking

God sent me a work of art
God sent me a work of art
Said, God sent me a work of art tonight

You're all tucked up for the daytime too

Said, God sent me a work of art tonight

And all I wanna do is...
And all I wanna do is...


Life Before You

I had a mind to tell you
I had a mind to fill you in for once
I had a heart wide open
A major discord left unspoken
I had a life before you
I have a life to pick up after you
And now the worst is over
This is the day we both move forward

No matter how I've tried it still comes back to this
The certain urgency we hold each time we kiss
And when I fail, I fail in spite of you

I found some ways to tell you
I found some lies to make up for you
I searched the skies for romance
The chances are you've seen right through me
I didn't call to tempt you
I moved around in hope I'd open up
For all the good that it did me
This is the day we both move forward

No matter how I try it still comes back to it
The certain urgency we hold each time we kiss
But when I fail, I fail in spite of you

No matter how I try it still comes back to this
The certain urgency we hold each time we kiss
I has the fear that all was lost now make me brave
But now I've failed, I've failed in spite of you


Correctional

My charms are yet to be discovered
She keeps hers under the covers
I'm heading for things much greater
Looking for handouts, looking for favours

Check on us, still arriving
She has got me covered

I don't think there's much to fear
She speaks and I'm held here
I've seen the light

Cos you're so right, so right
It feels so right, so...
And you're so right, so right
Yeah you're so right, so...

My head is bruised and bothered
Forcing me to look to others
She's heading for the back stairs
Heaven knows what she keeps there

Check on us, still surviving
She has got me covered

I don't think there's much to fear
One day she'll take a look down here
That's not the way it's supposed to be

You're so right, so right
Yeah you're so right, so...
It feels so right, so right
And you're so right, so...

It won't be long before I recover
My senses have been smothered
It would seem I've lost direction
In this one wish, I see correction

Check on us, irritated
She has got me covered

I don't think there's much to put right
That's not the reason I won't fight
I've no sense of realism

Cos you're so right, so right
Yeah you're so right, so...
It feels so right, so right
Yeah you're so right, so...

(choke you fuck)


Easy To Talk

She comes in sums and numbers
You feel her right away
But there's a portion of me wondering what it is she finds so hard to say

She don't find it easy to talk
She don't find it easy to talk

I've looked into my lover's eyes
Give everyone a second take
But the latest invitations have been washed out in the rain

She don't find it easy to talk
She don't find it easy to talk

Easy to talk
Easy to talk
Easy to talk
Easy to talk

Her last came on a strange bed
Thought everything could be erased
This distance kills achievement and manages to tear away

She don't find it easy to talk
She don't find it easy to talk

So when you ever want me
Ever want it whole
Some way you take sometimes
Always seem to laugh
Say you want to wait forever
And let them know
Just call the whole thing off and lay low
Lay low

No-one will ever love you
No-one will ever love you
No-one will ever love you
No-one will ever
No-one will ever love you
No-one will ever love you
No-one will ever love you
No-one will ever
Love you
Love you


A Night Out With A Foreign Fella

The seriousness of this windowless mess
Last chance won't ever feel this good
I wished it did but I always sense things
I break the bone, the bone won't set straight
I set the clock and the clock just runs late
I put the money in, expect a ticket out
I shove more money but the machine swallows the lot

And the secrets I keep, well deceit just runs deep
My guess says relief can't really be too far
That wouldn't be my first faux pas
I put the lock, the lock won't give way
I ran away when the last man had his say
I let somebody in, I threw somebody out
I threw a party and the whole room started to shout!

You're starting what you've started for
Marking cards or keeping score
My state of mind is easily supposed
I'm not the one you're looking for
Never have, never was, never will be
No sixth sense, oh man you kill me!
Not the one you're looking for

And the source is unsolved, as the same scene grows old
It takes a bomb to bust out of my head
Restrain device to keep from blowing up
I check the pulse, the pulse just feels false
I shock the heart by way of impulse
I look for trouble then I run for cover then
I blew my cover when the whole thing started to sour

You're starting what you've started for
Marking cards or keeping score
My state of mind is easily supposed
I'm not the one you're looking for
Never have, never was, never will be
No sixth sense, oh man you kill me!
Not the one you're looking for

You're starting what you've started for
Marking cards or keeping score
My state of mind is easily supposed
I'm not the one you're looking for
Never have, never was, never will be
No sixth sense, oh man you kill me!
Not the one you're looking for


Kissing The Mirror

Ultimately I will be whatever it is you invent me to be
Consequently I don't need nothing that is not reflected in me

Big deal, I feel
Nothing could make it so real
Big deal, I feel
That kissing the mirror was right
I kiss the one I love, it's no fight

Picture me here on top of the girl, where all the love I give out is for me
Steam won't stop me, I have a picture of all I need to see or feel

Big deal, I feel
Nothing could make it so real
Big deal, I feel
That kissing the mirror was right
I kiss the one I love, it's no fight

I, I, I, I, I love you
I, I, I, I, I love you

Picture me on top of the girl where all the love that I give out is for me
Picture me rotten to the core, rotten to the core, ROTTEN TO THE CORE

Big deal, I feel
Nothing could make it so real
Big deal, I feel
Nothing could make it so real
Big deal, I feel
Nothing could make it so real
Big deal, I feel
That kissing the mirror was right
I kiss the one I love, it's no fight
The only true love that I ever did fear
I only ever wanted want


At One

I wanna be the one
That makes it in the end
I wanna be the one
To say that we're still friends
I wanna be the one
Who does not know when to stop
Cause I don't get it, you won't let it
I've got be the one

I wanna be the one
That takes his piece of sky
I wanna be the one
Who looks it in the eye
I wanna be the one
Who knows where he's got to go
But I don't think straight, you won't stay late
I've got to be the one

I wanna be at one
I wanna be at one
I wanna be at one

I wanna be the one
That never ever bends
I gonna be the one
Who knows when to offend
I'll always be the one
Who is not bought or sold
Cause I look backwards, I look forward
To what I'm taking on

When I love somebody, I'll let you know
When I change my thing, it's just a way to grow
If I can't reach it there's just no time to blow
Let's just to say I'm winning, just beginning
Hat check and go
Gonna be the one

Gotta be at one


2113

Don't wanna bum your groove
Don't wanna kill your scene
Hey! Don't wanna move you on
Don't need to vent that spleen

Don't wanna bum your groove
Hey! Don't wanna bum your groove
No, don't wanna bum your groove

Start now!

So will you check the time
Hey! So will you check that time
Say, it's not a measure that I take
Ah, it's just a choice I was forced to make

So will you check the time
Come on, check that time
Go, check the time

Start now!

It's gone nine
Just park it when you find it
It's gone nine
Stick it anywhere you find the space

So don't you think me rude
No! But there's a time to move
Oh! You catch me in a rush
Just settle down, yeah settle down your puff and stuff

Oh! So don't you think me rude
No, don't you think me rude
So, don't you think me rude

It's gone nine

It's gone nine
Just park it when you find it
It's gone nine
Stick it anywhere you find the space

It's alive
It's alive
It's alive


Guess My God

You know I can hardly hear you
Is this is the way your parents speak?
And when you bare your holy soul
It doesn't have effect on me

This God sends your sorry ass back
Choosing to save what you lack
Throw down your golden icon
And walk a line that serves you only
Now walk alone but that's so rare

That's so rare
That's so...

That's so rare
That's so...

Swap your cross for my number
Let no man live in wonder
I'm decorating the Miles-mas tree
Here's a gift from I to me
Really in it for you? I'm really in it for me

Guess my God
Guess my God
Guess my God
Guess my God
My hymn's a solo song

Why would I care if you like me?
But give your loving, it's good to receive
That's all in the bank now
Goes with the magical feeling
Goes with the magical
Really in it for you? I'm really in it for me

I'm so rare
I'm so rare
I'm so rare
This isn't really the holy roll

Guess my God
Guess my God
Guess my...

My hymn's a solo song

Let no man live in wonder
My hymn's a solo song
Let no man live in wonder
My hymn's a solo song
Let no man live in wonder
My hymn's a solo song


Give It Whole

Is it right?
You're closer to the bone
Well that's not the kind of thing you should do alone
It's not a give away to shed it all
It's alright this time

Is your soul fooling with your eyes?
Well that's not the kind of thing you'd realise
Its a cold and lonely wind that waits outside
It's alright this time

Well I'm not the only patron at your station
Your's aren't the kind of bags I'll carry home
You can leave some to my own imagination
Or give it to me whole
Give it to me whole

But tonight you want for no-one else
Well that's mighty big to say so but keep it yourself
Cause I'm not the one for patience that I'm shown
Am I wrong? I don't know

Well I'm not the only patron at your station
Those aren't the kind of bags I'll carry home
You can leave it to my own imagination
Or give it to me whole
Give it to me whole
Give it to me whole
My obsession
Give it to me whole

I'm swallowing the words that have been mine
It's times like you that makes a body shine
I don't feel it in so many other places
Take me to your side, side

Its a sign I take from no-one else
Well I'm cut so very deep I'm wallowing in self
I would be sorely disappointed should you go
And I'm right this time

Cause I'm not the only patron at your station
These aren't the kind of bags I'll carry home
You could leave it to my own imagination
Or give it to me whole
Give it to me whole
Give it to me whole
My obsession
Give it to me whole

The marathon of you is damaging my head
You're a source of inspiration, something else


Your Latest Innuendo

They say they want you
There's every single man stuck in your head?
Misguided lovers walking down the aisle
Foot in hand

Take me as you want me
And throw me with the rest when you don't
Cause your fashion fits the flavour of the times we're living in
And I can't run

Change is with me everyday
Your latest innuendo says
"Hold me when you want me
Will you still let me know?
Will you still let me know?
Hold me when you want me..."

Hauled in by packet
Sewed in at the seams, it's sound
Take me for a chump if that's it
And when you're gone, I am bound

Say then what you've gotta say
Bite it when you need the space
Lay me down and lay me hard and hey
It's not so bad

Change is with me everyday
Your latest innuendo says
"Hold me when you want me
Will you still let me know?
Will you still let me know?
Hold me when you want me..."

Change is with me everyday
The latest innuendo says
"Hold me when you want me..."
