Tired of Sleeping watching red lights changing shape A late night turns to an early day If only I could see things the right way Maybe I would stay, maybe I would stay Choosing weird and horrible over great Hoping that good things will come if I wait for you But trying to pick the right abstract metaphor Is just like looking for needles in a haystack It can be hard to see beyond the red See life in yellow, after the dead But there’s nothing really new here, just the same old games Another culture in a different frame There are such vibrant colours in the dark Black masks keep secrets just like stars Sleaze and passion goes hand in hand But the truth is always colour blind Green grass and evil ducks Blue skies, pushing your luck brown eyes, a red demise black mask, black gloves AAARGH!

We’ve been talking about how much we hate this city and how easy it is to find a reason to leave For everything great, you find something shitty And there’s all the obstacles that we don’t really need So I sit at home twiddling my thumbs wanting to go out and stay out late Every night, but I feel so old sometimes When I’m at work I count the hours, the minutes, the seconds until I can leave Five days a week, that’s no way to live We’ve been talking about how much we love this city and how easy it is to find a reason to stay Behind the grey is something so pretty And there’s all those friends that we have met along the way So I sit at home twiddling my thumb Wanting to call you and you and you Ask you to come out, hang out, do stuff just like when we were kids Build a steady stream of awesome adult memories Instead of sitting in the pub and talk about all the things we used to do

Now that I know it’s working, I’m gonna take that time machine Head to LA this time, but I’ll stick to the 70s I’m gonna Go-Go’s to The Masque, Screamers are on tonight It’s a better world when Tomata’s alive And we’ll dance all night, we’ll drink until we drop Take acid in the gutter and we’ll never ever stop The cops are not amused and they’ll try to shut us up We have no faith in authority and they have no faith in us Down to the Whiskey to watch Darby crash and burn He’s such a mess, but a lexicon devil with words In the Hong Kong pit there’s no time to feel pain The Dils lead our class war to the sound of the rain And we’ll dance all night, we’ll drink until we drop Take acid in the gutter and we’ll never ever stop The cops are not amused and they’ll try to shut us up We have no faith in authority and they have no faith in us No faith in authority! No faith in authority! No faith in authority! No faith in authority!

I find it hard to go to bed before midnight And then I still struggle to fall asleep My mind is buzzing like a wasp at a window All these first world demons are haunting me And I know things really aren’t that bad But are they really all that great? And I’m forgetting what normal is supposed to feel like Cause I don’t seem to feel much at all these days No one ever said it was easy And I never expected it to be I don’t want it to be easy I just wanna see And I’m losing my faith in magic And I don’t mean the David Copperfield kind I mean the tiny little things that never really meant anything But still made it so great to be alive And I get so fucking angry At the anger that’s all around It’s same old bullshit, people looking for scapegoats Cause they can’t stand their own lies No one ever said it was easy And we should never expect it to be I don’t want it to be easy I just wanna see

This bed is much too big for me and the right-hand side gets awfully cold I hog all the pillows and the duvet as well And I miss how you’re not here to tell me off Staring at the records and movies and books Trying to remember who bought what for who I need to box up my life, but where do I begin When the only thing I can think about is how much I miss your skin Your skin, I miss your skin Boxes and boxes of photographs Snapshots of happy days And even if now is all about the sad Good memories are things you should never erase And even if I like their new shade of brown I’m sure the plants will be glad to see you go Their green will return when they hear you sing I’ll be somewhere else missing your skin Your skin, I miss your skin

Walked through the old neighbourhood It felt so good, memories of how things used to be washed over me And at the top of the hill I thought ‘fuck, I miss this view’ Standing there I thought ‘fuck, I miss you’ Looked through the window of our old flat New people, writing love songs on their guitars and I wonder if there are Any signs at all of us left in that place Or if our past presence has been totally erased And I thought of all the cute and nerdy things we did And I thought of all the fun and dirty things we did And for a second I forgot all the sad and hurty things We’re doing now Still leaning against the wall The Star Flyer, I bought when you turned 25 it was a bit too small to ride I’m sure there’s a metaphor in there about you and me And I wonder how long people will just leave it be Tried to get up on the roof The door was locked, thought about ringing our old neighbour Ask for a small favour To relive days of drinking wine and killing radio stars Stephen Hawking and watching fireworks in the dark And I thought of all the cute and nerdy things we did And I thought of all the fun and dirty things we did And for a second I forgot all the sad and hurty things We’re doing now

I wonder where we lost it and why this time we didn’t even bother to look for it Instead we just let it die Like it never really meant anything It was late I was expecting your call To keep you from worrying about the ferry Now you were crying on top of it all And despite of what you said, I felt sorry for you 2392 days I didn’t see it coming , at least not then a single sentence have never felt so long I was just looking forward to seeing you again I didn’t realise things were so horribly wrong This was new, but still the same Sure, we’ve had our problems before Bottling up, directing the blame Your own flaws are so easy to ignore 2392 days The other times I had done the fighting for something I knew could be so good This time I figured it was up to you to fight and I really hoped you would But instead we just let it be awkward We left it so hopelessly sad Sharing a bed with an invisible wall Just letting a good thing go bad
