INTENSIVE CARE : 24 octobre 2005

GHOSTS

Here I stand victorious
The only man who made you come
When you cried, you cried for us
And when we died, you died alone
Gravity’s calling
Don’t go home
Where are we

Did what I could
For one of us
I always thought it was for you
And when I lied
Oh I lied for us
Because you never heard the truth
I am lying alone tonight
Don’t go home
Where are we

If we are ghosts
(A long long time ago)
It looks like we could have made it baby
We are ghosts
(A long long time)
Me and you
We are ghosts
(A long long time ago)
We could have made it
We are ghosts
(A long long time)
Me and you
(Ago)

Look at the time its taken me
To get away from what was said
I’ll never leave
I’ll always love
You know that all those words are dead
Buried in yours tonight
Move aside
I’m taking you home

On the radio
She was that summer song
Packing them in
Making them dance
A law of her own
Taking the time to sing it
I don’t need you
But I’m lost
I’m lost without you tonight
Have you no heart
Where are we
(Everybody sing it)

Ghosts
We love like ghosts
We are ghosts
They’re taking down our satellite
We are ghosts
Josephine
I’ll follow your star tonight
We are ghosts
If not tonight
Then when will she say
(Everybody sing it)
We’re not ghosts

TRIPPING

First they ignore you
Then laugh at you and hate you
Then they fight you
Then you win

When the truth dies very bad things happen
They’re being heartless again
I know it’s coming and there’s going to be violence
I’ve taken as much as I’m willing to take
Why do you think we should suffer in silence?
When a heart is broken there’s nothing to break

You’ve been mixing with some very heavy faces
The boys have done a bit of bird
They don’t kill their own
And they all love their mothers
But you’re out of your depth son have a word

I know it’s coming and there’s going to be violence
I’ve taken as much as I’m willing to take
Why do you think we should suffer in silence?
The heart is broken there’s nothing to break

All is wonderful in past lives
Dreaming of the sun she warms,
You should see me in the afterlife
Picking up the sons of dust

When you think we’re lost we’re exploring
What you think is worthless
I’m adoring
You don’t want the truth the truth is boring
I’ve got this fever, need to
Leave the house
Leave the car
Leave the bad men where they are
I leave a few shells in my gun
N’ stop me staring at the sun….

I know it’s coming and there’s going to be violence
I’ve taken as much as I’m willing to take
Why do you say we should suffer in silence?
My heart is broken there’s nothing to break

I know it’s coming and there’s going to be violence
I’ve taken as much as I’m willing to take
Why do you think we should suffer in silence?
A heart is broken there’s nothing to break

MAKE ME PURE

So I sing a song
To reel ’em in
It’s a song I sung before
And a song I’m gonna sing again
I mean every word
I don’t mean a single one of them
Oh Lord, make me pure
– but not yet

Tell a joke
Tell it twice
If no-one else is laughing then why am I
I split my sides both times and laugh till I cry
Oh Lord, please make me pure
– but not yet

I don’t have to try
I just dial it in
I’ve never found a job that for me was worth bothering
I got a ton of selfish genes and lazy bones
Beneath this skin
Oh Lord, make me pure
– but not yet

Smoking kills
Sex sells
I’ve got one hand in my pocket but the other one looks cool as hell
I know I’m gonna die so my revenge is living well
Oh Lord, make me pure
– but not yet

I stopped praying
So I hope this song will do
I wrote it all for you
I’m not perfect but you don’t mind that, do you?
I know you’re there to pull me through, aren’t you?

So I look for love
I like the search
And I’ll be standing for election all across the known universe
Every president gets the country she deserves
Oh Lord, make me pure
– but not yet

And I’ve been seeing
Somebody’s wife
She said she’d leave him for me and I said that wasn’t wise
You can’t lie to a liar because of all lies
Oh Lord, please make me pure
– not yet

SPREAD YOUR WINGS

I used to live ’round here
I was the boy with the flash clothes
She was the girl with the acid stare
I saw her at the place
You knows she knows you know
How she shakes
When she jacks her body
To the sounds of Orange Juice
And Jocelyn Brown

Oh spread your wings
Before they fall apart
Home is where the hurt is darling
Follow your heart

So she walks into this dead end bar
Sticks her handbag
On the chair
So she walks into this dead end bar
Puts hers handbag on the chair
And she weighs
For words we shared
When we were 15 and still cared
Cos she feels I’m a scar from the wound that time cant heal
And I said
Don’t let your dreams out of your head
Stick it to the man instead
Don’t fool your heart
Lying about the fears that you had back then

Did you try to change your life
Did you ever try to change your life
You repeat and repeat and repeat
Now what’s up with that

Now she loves somebody else
In flash clothes
She was the girl with the acid stare
And now she’d pay to have
One of those

And she weighs the word she says
And she knows
You exist
Now she feels I’m the scar from the wound that time can’t heal

Oh spread your wings
Before they fall apart
Home is where the hurt is darling
Follow your heart

Spread your wings
Before they fall apart
Home is where the hurt is darling
Follow your heart

Heart, heart, heart

ADVERTISING SPACE

There’s no earthly way of knowing
What was in your heart
When it stopped going
The whole world shook
A storm was blowing through you

Waiting for God to stop this
And up to your neck in darkness
Everyone around you was corrupted
Saying somethin’

There’s no dignity in death
To sell the world your last breath
They’re still fighting over
Everything you left over

I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space

And
No one learned from your mistakes
We let our profit s go to waste
All that’s left in any case
Is Advertising space

Through your eyes
The world was burning
Please be gentle
I’m still learning
You seemed to say
As you kept turning up

They poisoned you with compromise
At what point did you realise
Everybody loves your life
But you ahahh

Special agent for the man
Through watergate and vietnam
No one really gave a damn
Did you think the CIA did

I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space

And
No one learned from your mistake
We let our profits go to waste
All that’s left in any case
Is Advertising space ooooohh

I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space

No one learned from your mistakes
We let our profits go to waste
All that’s left in any case
Is Advertising space

I’ve seen your daughter
Man she’s cute
I was scared but I wanted to
Boy she looks a lot like you

PLEASE DON’T DIE

Let me lie down
Please don’t wake me
Nothing’s sacred
And no-one save me

In my black eye
I can feel it
Moving
Closer
Cant you hear it

The only gift you gave to me
Was self-fulfilling prophecy
I need to change the sounds
That shape my life

And if you die before i leave
What on earth becomes of me
Look around there’s no-one here
To love me and hold me

Take me
Dancing
I love music
Keep on
Singing
We wont loose it

Picture
Me here
Missing no-one
If your hearts run free
Why can’t we go on

Go on to till they kick us out
We’ve everything to talk about
I could bring a song into your life

If you should die before i leave
What on earth becomes of me
Look around there’s no-one here
To love me and hold me

Maybe I’ve been away too long
I know I’m not always right but is that wrong
They say there’s nothing I can do
But talk to strangers and wait for you

If you should die before i leave
What on earth becomes of me
Look around there’s no-one here
To love me and hold me

And if you die before i leave
What on earth becomes of me
Look around there’s no-one here
To love me and hold me
Oooh ooh ooh!

YOUR GAY FRIEND

Woohoo!

Hey hey here comes no-one
Another friend to have a go on
And she asks me do I miss her when shes gone
And I reply as much as I miss anyone

Oh! Woohoo
And I’ll be your gay friend
‘Cause your marriage never ends
Till we fuck and fight again
Theres a space between us
So jump into my bed
Pretend the world is dead
And always in my head
Is a face between us

Hey lord forgive us if we’re wrong
Make sure that he never hears this song
And she says that I’m the opposite of a hallmark card
She asks me how I’m feeling well
I don’t want to think that hard

Oh! Woohoo!
And I’ll be your gay friend
‘Cause your marriage never ends
Till we fuck and fight again
Theres a space between us
Jump into my bed
Pretend the world is dead
And always in my head
Is a face between us

It’s the late show now
How does the late show end?
Well if God is in, the details
Thank God that you’re my friend
I have a friend again
You’re my friend again
My gay friend

Oh! Woohoo! Erhh
So jump into my bed
Pretend the world is dead
And always in my head
Is a face between us
And I’ll be your gay friend
As your marriage never ends
Till we fuck and fight again
There’s a space between us
Oh! Woohoo!

SIN SIN SIN

Don’t let your eyes tell the brain
You should feel ashamed
Everyone needs it baby
And I feel the same
Didn’t quite catch your name
Hush, hush, hush
Don’t say a thing
Let’s see what the night will bring
It might be everything

Oh it hurts
When you’re too blind to see
Please don’t read my mind
I tell the truth to me

Sin sin sin
Look where we’ve been
And where we are tonight
Hate the sin not the sinner
I’m just after a glimmer
Of love and life
Deep inside

Hush hush hush
To speak is a sin
And neither of us
Need rescuing
Just relax
It’s what Jesus would do
We’re made in his image baby
Let’s ride this thing through

Oh it hurts
When you’re to blind to see
What about us
Well it was just for me

Sin sin sin
Look where we’ve been
And where we are tonight
Hate the sin not the sinner
I’m just after a glimmer
Of love and life
Deep inside

I won’t sing of amore
It don’t sound sincere
Love is a cliché
But it fits not here
I’ll disappear

Sin sin sin
Look where we’ve been
And where we are tonight
Hate the sin not the sinner
I’m just after a glimmer
Of love and life
Deep inside
Deep inside

It’s love
Clean sex joy
I love you
You love my hate
And it feels inside
Feels inside
Feels inside

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS

For those about to die
We salute you
For those of about to cry
We love you
For those of us who live in fear
Of Happy Christmas and new year
I raise a toast to you

And if it hurts
To be so blind
Why don’t you try
Being kind

They’ve decided to become
A little more Pro-active
Creep upon you while you sleep
And make you less attractive

Born without a spine
Why don’t you try
Being kind

For those out drinking at their mother’s way
You’ll find a way to soldier on
For those whose love evaporates
I pray you’ll find where you belong

Oh, the words I have repressed
Are coming out today I guess
It is justice not respect I’m after
And that just leaves contempt
For you all
Oh oh oh
Yeah yeah
Yeah

I am just a simple man
With simple expectations
Deep regrets
They’re seldom met
God speed my generation

And with Crowley on my mind
I should try being kind

For those about to die
We salute you
For those of about to cry
We love you
For those about to die
We salute you
For those of about to cry
We love you

THE TROUBLE WITH ME

You see the trouble with me
I’ve got a head full of fuck
I’m a basket case
I don’t think I can love, love, love

You see the trouble with you
Is you’re in love with me
What a strange thing to do
What a brave place to be

So we dive
On sunset strip
A heart so deep
I drown in it
And as it breaks
I swim through cracks
And leave with words
I can’t take back

You see the trouble with me
Monkey see monkey do
There’s no u in tomorrow
A better offer came through
You see the trouble with you
There’s no trouble with you
So when you say that you love me
That stops me loving you

So she stays
On sunset strip
A heart so full
I drown in it
She’s waiting for
My words to break
The one true love
I couldn’t make

So she walks
That golden mile
Men will try
And catch her eye
We both know
What could have been
On sunset strip
Our broken dream

A PLACE TO CRASH

I – I – I
I’m on a mission
To abuse my position
Abuse it with you

Love, I’m a cynical bitch
Gonna scratch that itch
With a bitch like you

Modern thinking’s made me miserable
Everything is unforgivable
If not for you
I wouldn’t come at all

Find a place to crash
(Boom boom, boom boom labida)
Move your boney ass
(Boom boom, boom boom labida)

Love me like I’m cash
(Boom, boom, boom, boom, labida)
You can feel the class
(Boom, boom, boom, boom, labida)

If there’s a freak in here
Looking for someone like me
I fit that description
Perfectly

Boom, boom, boom
I bet they’ll resent you
They would if they met you
Met you with me

Every move you make is poetry
They all fake what you do naturally
If not for you
I wouldn’t come at all

Find a place to crash
(Boom, boom, boom, boom, labida)
Move your boney ass
(Boom, boom, boom, boom, labida)

Love me like I’m cash
(Boom, boom, boom, boom, labida)
You can see the clash
(Boom, boom, boom, boom, labida)

Kiss me with your mouth
Teach me with your brain
All right

Oh, yeah, oh, yeah

They say I say
When I say nothing at all
It leaves a taste in my stomach
And it’s no taste at all

I can’t sing, I can’t dance
But it don’t stop me at all
It’s a ball when I call, if I call you at all

Love is the reason but it won’t pay my rent
Only palone fill your dish in the dent
I won’t be happy ’till the moneys been spent
I forget to forget, oh, fuck it, oh, fuck it

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

KING OF BLOKE AND BIRD

Speak so loud
I cant hear what you say
Except for the occasional word
Sulphates a sentimental side
It bothers me
No longer king of bloke and bird

All of my life
Searching hard
Down in the wires
Of love

Summon me now
Summon my life away
Summon me on to another day
A hand through the clouds
Keeps knocking me down
It’s no less than I deserve
They built museums
I don’t visit them
I’ve made enough trouble of my own

Into the night
Searching hard
Look for the light
Of love

Summon me now
Summon my life away
Summon me on to another day
Summon the evening winter waves
Are falling down again
I sing from the chaos in my heart
My heart

Then comes the evening
That makes life worth living
Shoving the shoes out in the light
She walks in
I can hear her
