Now you're under a spell Drop your bombshell Now I'm trying to tell you That I'm broke into two When it comes to confidence There's a handful And I confide this I'm on a winning streak I play games with the freaks Oh yeah I'm a fan A spectator I never get involved On the sidelines I observe This situation evolve A situation too much for me Well I'll just stay in my seat I'm on a winning streak I play games with the freaks Hello out there You're all playing it unfair Try the outside Try the downside Try to decide Between the girls & the guys Make a statement On a new wavelength Try some zing I'm on a winning streak I play games with the freaks

Strawberry 03:12
I don't know what I want but I want it now After one taste i find I need more Well I'm going get it but I don't know how Strawberry seeds make my tongue bleed Fruit filled with razor blades pop singer's expensive shit Floors in my plan make me look bland It's all to do with money though Time to start going with the flow I don't see your logic ever My child, she's going to be wild when she grows up Give her a childhood to write about later So she doesn't go Europop and everybody hates her Strawberry seeds make my tongue bleed Fruit filled with razor blades pop singer's expensive shit Floors in my plan make me look bland It's all to do with money though Time to start going with the flow I don't see your logic ever

I feel like I'm still off your radar And in a minute I'll be tamed "Always crashing in the same bar" Everyone looks the same Try to be yourself Try to be the same I try to be myself but... I never felt this way They say you'll always feel the same Try your luck and try again Try to be yourself I never wanted to be this way Again Where would I be without my gaydar? Would I be just the same? Where would I be without my gaydar? In a minute I'll be tamed Where would I be without my gaydar? Would I be just the same? Try to be yourself Try to be the same I try to be myself but... I never felt this way They say you'll always feel the same Try your luck and try again Try to be yourself I never wanted to be this way Again So try your luck and try again Try to be yourself I never wanted to be this way Again

Mannequins 04:03
My mannequin I am pleased to have known you We lived in sin but I'm pleased to have known you We had a lot of good times Your lay figure laying close to mine All the birds and the bees are flying out of trees Just to get a fibreglass frame of mind We lied like everybody does Underneath the glass and the industrial dust We smiled in love and lust I'm going to die just like everybody else does And then they melted me down I'm not a coward, I'd be nowt but naked They melted me down No suprise that I'd be outdated We had the best of the 'fanplastic' years Your lay figure laying down in fear All the birds and the bees are flying out of trees Just to get our fibreglass frame of mind And then they melted me down I'm not a coward, I'd be nowt but naked They melted me down No suprise that I'd be outdated

When I close my eyes I can see So many colours I've never seen Before the spring I smile and take one last deep breath Smell the begining of winter's death C'mon you see You never took it so seriously Well I think it's time for a change of scenery A speck of dust falls in the sunbeam Did it jump? Was it pushed? Did anyone see? Familar smells, familar tastes, changes in the air This present time is in disrepair C'mon you see You never took it so seriously Well I think it's time for a change of scenery I never thought this change would mean the end

Why kill the survivors when you're not surving yourself? I'm building a wall to baracade myself in, dump myself in I'm waging a war, an unwinnable choice of war I'm weighing up the price of fighting alone I'm alone in this Let's stay apart Let's stay apart Let's stay apart Let's stay apart Now kill the survivors when you're not killing yourselves Building up a wall to dump myself in, dump myself in I'm building a war, a vulture's choice of war I'm alone in this I'm alone in this Let's stay apart Let's stay apart Let's stay apart Let's stay apart Let's stay away Let's stay away hey Away, away today

Clubbing tonight On my own Someone to go with They're at home You see that man at the back by the window Well I think he'll do So I go over and do my thing Because he reminds me of you Time creeps by You're not by my side You're not by my side Blood rushes to my head So I give you a call Non will let me into their bed And I want them all Where are you when I need you? Where are you when it matters most? Can't you tell I need to see you? Now I'm seeing a ghost Time creeps by You're not by my side You were the one I chose And now I'm seeing a ghost It's like seeing a ghost Arrive alone but leave together Time creeps by You're not by my side You were the one I chose And now I'm seeing a ghost It's like seeing a ghost

String puppet hanging still by it's kneck I love it but I cut of it's legs Some day you'll find it burning on a spit Thousand gather and kick it with the kids Still kicking Still kicking Still kicking now Our finest hour We're waiting for our excuse To return to life I'm alive! We're hold on for our turn To return to life In the midday sun The vultures come And feed off the puppet's flesh Then one by one They pull out their guns And fall to their death Still kicking Still kicking Still kicking now Our finest hour We're waiting for our excuse To return to life I'm alive! We're hold on for our turn To return to life

Hotel Damage Make me want to live Make me want to cry But why? Why? Make me into something new Dream dream sequence Rapid eyes move Move To and fro Surrealist Manifesto Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Hold me Throw me In a land of nod Use me Abuse me Ask me why, why, why, why? Make me shiver with fright The shock, shock, horror, horror shock, shock horror of my plight Move To and fro Surrealist Manifesto Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Surrealist Manifesto Surrealist Manifesto Let's go Let's go Surrealist Manifesto Let's go
