Button

Don’t bring me symptoms / I don’t feel sick / I don’t want a promise if it won’t stick / I don’t want nothing except you to push my button / don’t want anaesthetic / I’m not awake / I feel pathetic / mistakes I make / I don’t need nothing except you to push my button / you know the secret / I hope you ain’t forgotten / I don’t want nothing except you to push my button / don’t want an injection / I’ve got it sewn / don’t want your infections / I’ve got my own

Lost in the Snow

It didn’t hurt / we kept right on playing / we hadn’t heard the faithful praying / with all we had it didn’t seem to matter / the news was bad / the future badder / falling into a hole was pointless and just wrong / we only wish you what it takes to get along / it didn’t rain / skies didn’t open / the world spun on / angels were hoping / it didn’t hurt / it was a lesson / snowing on dirt / you were a blessing / you lost your vision and forgot your golden star / and when it did rain they weren’t tears for you at all / you kept it from us you were losing it / the angels watching over you just let you slip away so painlessly / they were the only ones who knew / now the snow has frozen up both your cities / the angels disappeared from view / they left before we could have owned them / like they had nothing left to do

Funny Fish

Funny fish can you stomach this? / don't gimme that - there's meat on my dish / I wish you'd tell me yeah tell me tell me I want you to tell me / is my baby gonna be ok? / whitey dread / what's that you said? / don't gimme that - it's all in my head / I wish you'd wake up / yeah wakey wakey I want you to wake up / cos I heard the tale where she woke up dead / she's out of my hair but not out of my headspace yeah / and she's a funny fish / a funny fish / and she's alright / honey hon / this ain't much fun / you gave me that mercury on my tongue / I wish she'd quit it / yeah hit it hit it I want you to spit / cos I heard the tale then I found out the end / she's left for heaven and she's never to return / and she's a funny fish / she's a funny fish / what a funny fish / yeah a funny fish / and she's alright

Terminal

Don't turn around / they could be watching you / and every second gone / and every moment wrong / you feel a terminal unease / you feel you turned out wrong / and all the time you spent trying to get it right again / animal intuition guides your every step / did I let you know how things are prone to go? / don't plan out every move too well to fit some groove / can't say that I can expect anything from anything / never said I never wanted it all / but did you plan it that way when it turned out ok? / don't say yes / yes yes yes / found you changed your mind today / found you changed your mind today

Millionth Wish

Here I am / can you wrap me up / wrap me up in your hands? / here I am / lost inside your desert when you bury me / bury me in the sand / in the sand / sand / if distance is your master / walk a thousand miles / another million wishes / and I'd kill just to see your smile / wait for me / it's only been about a million days / I tried so hard to get through / wait for me / that is what you said you'd do / and I promised that I'd wait for you too / you / the train of thought has disrailed / you never thought I'd tell / communication's failed / and I never thought you'd kill me so well / here I am / and your million wishes are now gone / and your million wishes are gone / the train of thought has disrailed / you never thought I'd tell / communication's failed / and I never thought you'd kill me so well

Hole of Blood

There is a lot of major carnage in nature and we can only let it pass / real guys don’t want to watch the tarantula annihilate / they’d rather watch the cowboys kicking ass / but when she says she can’t have you because her hole of blood is keeping her whole / there’s a lot of bad inside the hand of every man / we don’t have to act like ants / we don’t live for the tribe / don’t have to live by the tribe to survive / it’s better to die / it’s better first that you should know some about the forces keeping you alive / don’t beat it to submission / it’s always fear that always underlies / too scared to adore / fresh orders to obey / keeping you unsure / keep your hate at bay / or does it make you bigger? / getting things disfigured / you are your own worst enemy / just admit it you don’t like alternatives / there’s a lot of indiscrepancies on board / contradictions are the only thing that’s sure / real guys don’t want to see a death they couldn’t create / they want some real action so they can relate
