It’s a mystery today when it’s over Where you gonna go when you fade out You didn’t tell me why I know I didn’t ask I could tell there was something wrong I heard it in your voice I saw it in your eyes Turn the contrast down You’re on TV again you’re in my window I don’t think I can tell which one’s the real you I drew you on my wall and now you are here You didn’t answer back and that’s no different I heard it in your voice I saw it in your eyes Turn the contrast down I crushed my own mistakes They’re here in writing I hope it’s not too late I’m coming over You’re on TV again you’re in my window I don’t think I can tell which one’s the real you

Thought you were tall You were standing on a wall With a mask stuck over your head Thought you were clever But you sold me down the river And now everything’s turning bright red I can’t stop seeing you You’re hanging around On the edges of this town Mask stuck on your head You were there Like always everyone stared There was a mask stuck over your head You look much better When you take it off I know you’re hiding like you wish you were dead I said I’d get you a coffee But you turned me flat down Can’t you take it off Mask stuck on your head Maybe we could take a shower In the fountain at the park I’ll meet you there at ten o’clock Just after it gets dark You look so much better now I wonder why your hiding You could be yourself tonight Or anyone instead

These simple words are wrong I said I love you It took too long Do you always have to sing that same dark song I saw you turning red Maybe it’s better if you don’t know what I said Maybe I’d better not stay If I was you I’d forget everything I say It’s been a long time coming I’m down in some tube station Drunk and humming You’re a flash frame You never stay the same You could dive for cover But you know that you’re unfair game I saw you thinking out loud I nearly laughed but I’m not proud Do you always have to bring that same dark cloud I saw you turning blue I don’t think you’re in control of the stuff you do Maybe I’d better not stay If I was you I’d forget everything I say These simple plans screw up It’s dark around here I lost my coffee cup

hey the world’s so different all you gotta do is go outside hey the world’s so different all you gotta do is buy a flashlight hey the world’s so different all you gotta do is run and hide hey hey world’s so different the world’s so different hey your name’s so difficult I can’t say it and neither can you Hey the world’s so different I’m gonna drive off the edge are you coming Hey your dreams have all gone Left you for dead and you don’t know Hey the world’s so different if I ask you twice can I talk to you

I stepped out in the sunlight Something was wrong The sky was yellow I took a hit On my white cigarette It must have been something You never said I looked at my watch and it had stopped I stopped moving Chain smoking All my pictures of you You were moving so fast You’re like a streak of light in the dust Out in the dark on Saturday night This day is blown open I can’t stand the light I can’t stand the light I can’t stand the light This day is blown open I can’t stand the light I stepped into the car I was feeling a fraud All my fiction was falling I couldn’t remember the words I cut my phone line I took what you said to heart You’re just a paper cut out I think you try too hard These words are a thing that I steal These words are like angels Where do they come from How could this be so wrong This day was blown open all along

caught in a trap i can’t reach my phone or take the rap what a surprise when i woke up and looked into your eyes maybe it’s real i’m falling through the air like a spinning wheel i’ve been so mad i’m feeling pretty good i am not sad i’m caught in a trap i’m in slow motion and I can’t control my emotions there’s gonna be a big explosion but i’m not turning back caught in a trap a monumental tower of screaming truth and you are lit up a daisy chain of lies and coffee cups did you make it through i think my answerphone’s been sniffing glue i didn’t expect you to understand a single thing i said nothing we can do will change a thing we’ll be running down the road again clutching chances like screaming megaphones but i’m not turning back caught in a trap i can’t close my eyes or make a call caught in a trap i don’t know why i liked you at all

Where’s your whip And where’s your good friend george zipp I can’t remember and I’m starting to slip And what the hell happened to your bottom lip On the floor and raving I’m not sure if your worth saving I can’t give you the love your craving Don’t ask me to try Where are your eyes I guess you didn’t notice and I’m not surprised Where’s your face It was made out of latex down on Cavendish place This time has words of it’s own Today I don’t think we’ll ever get home All your dreams and all your fears Are in a yellow cab Heading over here Where’s your fire You carelessly mislaid your hearts desire As expensive as it was The least you could have done was find a good cause Where’s your trip When you leave don’t forget about george zipp If he must deny You can tell him to say it When he looks you in the eye

You pulled the blinkers right over my eyes I couldn’t move from the second you lied I didn’t understand that was how it was And I’m still not laughing You make it up as you’re going along I didn’t guess I’m too clever to be wrong I’ve got the perfect disguise I’ve got these memories inside And I’m not coming round again I lost it on the inside I lost it on the underground I couldn’t get it back again But I know I’ll get you soon With my perfect disguise You pulled my world apart You made an art of screwing up everything I’ve never seen you notice what you do What you’re doing to yourself every time

you got caught out your explanation stinks you’re made of glass one day you will smash what can i say to make you understand you’re very quiet and you don’t stand a chance can’t believe you won’t believe you don’t believe you none of this is true you came apart everyone just stared if i had been there i wonder if i’d have cared i can’t see you anymore what do you want me to say

there was something here but we can’t get it back my eyes won’t focus and i’m starting to lose track i’m holding you tightly but you’ve almost disappeared i said i love you but you told me i’m plain weird and i’m trying to make sense but it feels like self defence and i don’t know how to tell remember we were drunk and sliding on the ice you said that love is good but hate is half the price i said hey now what the hell does that mean you replied no matter how you try you never feel clean i thought i was screwed up but you are just the worst sometimes you’re crazy i think you’re gonna burst remember we were drunk and sliding on the ice you said that love is good but hate is half the price

You’ve been wrong Did I wake you up when I called you on the phone You’re not alone I’ve been in the shadows all along Didn’t you say You never heard you never understood I’ll wake you up at nine o’clock I’ve got to tell you something The lights are on but there’s no one home You left your dreams on your asaphone You’ve been away Chances are you were never here at all You’ve lost your voice Hey I like it better when you just shut up I’ll do the talking When we hit the check point keep your head down here Don’t walk away I hope I’ll understand you one day You’re so cold But it wouldn’t help if I gave you all my clothes You better stay awake You’ve gotta stay alive a little more One day soon I’ll buy you a rocket to the moon I thought I saw you laugh But it’s hard to tell and I know you won’t say

breaking up in the morning I know I always will Paint my windows black and white This time I’ve had my fill Sitting down the purple bar Blowing up my best friends car I’m trying to figure out things so far I’ve been drowning in my beer It’s been 57 hours since I lost you Killed some time with people I don’t like and they don’t like me I’d love you ‘till the cows come home And by the way did you notice I’ve gone I’m losing all my favourite things Forgetting how to sing Maybe I should have tied you up with stronger string I’m drowning in my fear It’s been 57 hours since I lost you Right now I miss you so much My head will explode I’m falling off my chair I’d call you but I’m too scared To hear what you’re gonna tell me To hear what you’re doing without me Maybe I’ll just kill another beer It’s been 57 hours since I lost you It feels like 57 years since I lost you

This is where I try to make some sense Of this whole mad show Sometimes I am really pretty dense And I think you know Feels like I just woke up from a trance Now it’s time to go Driving out to this big dark nowhere I lost my map but I don’t care I’d buy you a drink but you’re not there I’m almost sure I saw you glitch Are you through the one way glass Are you changing into someone else This is where I tell you I love you And I always did I was never frank the human fly No matter what you said My super human powers are just a scam A joke that you misread

I tried to remember But this infamous message was turning around in my dream Stopped breathing What can you say when the curtain’s on fire You know I’ll never miss you I’ll tape my self to the door This number’s disconnected I tried to get back But you know how it is I don’t think that you care anymore Don’t move The ashes are flashing the sky has changed for good You know I’ll never see you There’s a message but I don’t know for who This number’s disconnected This number’s disconnected I saw you for a second You were walking on by And the least you could have done was look surprised Did I tell you you look like a dream in the rain Did I say now Did I tell you to try Never start again This infamous message is waiting around to break in This number’s disconnected
