Numb senses, heavy eyes I tell you this is not my disguise Vision clouds, grey skies There’s no fields of green behind these eyes I don’t feel a thing Can’t feel the sting I’m stuck in this unholy mire Bruised lips, ringing ears It’s what I get for my part in the years Cold nights, shaky dawn I’m stuck like this until we reach the morn I don’t feel a thing Can’t feel the sting I’m stuck in this unholy mire I don’t feel a thing Can’t feel the sting I’m caught in this old rotting mire Sweaty palms, itchy nose I don’t know where my imprint goes Achy joints, buzzing brain Don’t know when I’ll feel like this again I don’t feel a thing Can’t feel the sting I’m stuck in this unholy mire Cold nights, shaky dawn I’m stuck like this til we reach the morn Numb senses, heavy eyes I tell you this is not my disguise Stench rising, nausea waits Clench my buttocks and accept my fate When the shit….hits the fan Thru’ the night she’ll do the can can I don’t feel a thing Can’t feel the sting I’m stuck in this unholy mire I don’t feel a thing Can’t feel the sting I’m caught in this old rotting mire

There’s a line to be drawn Every time I see your face There’s a line to be crossed Every time I find my space (x2) I’m just driving down the empty road It’s 4am and there’s no-one home But still I must go Go to the place I’ve not seen before This road is long and windy And there’s many right and wrong turns But still I keep going Hoping to arrive at your door Theres a line…(x2) I’m going blind, the lights in front of me I can’t see the wood from the trees But still I’ve got my foot to the floor And I’m wondering what its all for So I drive and I drive and I drive Down that busy but empty road And slap another weary sign upon my head It’s just another episode Theres a line….(x4) (at 3rd) But still I must go…go to the place I’ve not seen before But still I keep going…hoping to arrive at your door I’ve been here before…and I know I’ll be here again I feel my time is coming…and I’m sure I’ll be ready then

Can't be arsed to get out of bed today Gonna lie here and think about another way To get thru' the day without feeling queer Queer to be here Can't bring myself to look in the mirror today To see what's looking back in a funny way I look and I can't help feeling queer Queer to be here Another day...oh...another day Can't even move to switch on the TV today It would just irritate me anyway It's things like that, when I'm feeling queer Queer to be here Another day...oh...another day Not exactly a roll in the hay...anyway

Ok, we start again, just like nothing ever coulda an' if you feel better, for just one second, I guess all's as it shoulda Weird, but it suits me, you sulking at the tables end And now, you see why, I could never be your friend So ya keep this up, your form says you will It's so comical it's so farcical, that's what gives me such a thrill That's the way it is, you're not as smart as you think you are Me, I'm the same smug cunt, now aint that bizarre No biggie, some you win, some you lose Aint necessarily the life we choose But to mess with it, is not to live And not to live, is not to give it all The truth or what are we here for? To bore, bore my fucking head off? I don't think so Aint ever gonna work, come on

I hear what yr thinking I know what’s on your mind I see what yr saying Yr not the hurting kind And the back doesn’t change from the front very much and the song remains the same and the flack that I take doesn’t hurt very much all the same When you’re frightened to say what you really think Just like yesterday Don’t hold back, gimme the flack all the same I hear what yr thinking The trouble in yr heart I know what’s yr reason I knew right from the start
