THANKS
WHILE THEY WERE SLEEPING

Little Baby Nothing

No one likes looking at you
Your lack of ego offends male mentality
They need your innocence
To steal vacant love and to destroy
Your beauty and virginity used like toys

My mind is dead, everybody love's me
Wants a slice of me
Hopelessly passive and compatible
Need to belong, oh the roads are scarey
So hold me in your arms
I wanna be your only possession

Used, used, used by men
Used, used, used by men

All they leave behind is money
Paper made out of broken twisted trees
Your pretty face offends
Because it's something real that I can't touch
Eyes, skin, bone, contour, language as a flower

No god reached me, faded films and loving books
Black and white TV
All the world does not exist for me
And if I'm starving, you can feed me lollipops
Your diet will crush me
My life just an old man's memory

Little baby nothing
Loveless slavery, lips kissing empty
Dress your life in loathing
Breaking your mind with Barbie Doll futility

Little baby nothing
Sexually free, made-up to breakup
Assassinated beauty
Moths broken up, quenched at last
The vermin allowed a thought to pass them by

You are pure, you are snow
We are the useless sluts that they mould
Rock 'n' roll is our epiphany
Culture, alienation, boredom and despair

You are pure, you are snow
We are the useless sluts that they mould
Rock 'n' roll is our epiphany
Culture, alienation, boredom and despair

P.C.P.
SINGLE : FASTER / P.C.P.
ALBUM : THE HOLY BIBLE

Teacher starve your child P.C. approved
As long as the right words are used
Systemised atrocity ignored
As long as bi-lingual signs on view

Ten foot sign in Oxford Street
Be pure, be vigilant, behave
Grey not neon, grey not real
Life bleeds, death is your birthright

P.C. she speaks impotent and sterile,
Naive, blind, atheist, sadist,
Stiff-upper lip, first principle of her silence,
Of her silence

P.C.P., a P.C. police victory
P.C.P., a P.C. pyrrhic victory
When I was young P.C. meant Police Constable
Nowadays I can't seem to tell the difference

Liposuction for your bad mouth boy
Cut out your tongue, effigies are sold
Words discoloured, bow to the bland
Heal yourself with sinner's salt

Doctors arrested for euthanasia
Kill smokers through blind vanity
If you're fat don't get ill
Europe's gravestone carved in plastic

P.C. she says innoculate, hallucinate
Beware Shakespeare, bring fresh air
King cigarette snuffed out by her midgets,
By her midgets

P.C.P., a P.C. police victory
P.C.P., a P.C. pyrrhic victory
When I was young P.C. meant Police Constable
Nowadays I can't seem to tell the difference

P.C. caresses bigots and big brother
Read Liviticus, learnt censorship
Pro-life equals anti-choice
To be scared of, of feathers

P.C.P., a P.C. police victory
P.C.P., a P.C. pyrrhic victory
When I was young P.C. meant Police Constable
Nowadays I can't seem to tell the difference

Lawyers before love, surrogate sex
This land bows down to
Yours, unconditional love and hate
Pass the prozac, designer amnesiac

"227 Lears and I can't remember the first line..."

PATRICK BATEMAN
SINGLE : LA TRISTESSE DURERA (SCREAM TO A SIGH)
ALBUM : GOLD AGAINST THE SOUL

He's a real cool guy and he's a hero of mine
Travis, Rhinehart rolled into one cute son
Less than zero a grotesque nightmare
Subtly disturbing like normal behaviour

I understand nothing and I cannot speak
I'd walk in the park but the trees are diseased
No sweetheart and I am too confused
I only love my watch and my snakeskin shoes

I feel so small in the supermarket queue
People seem to laugh at my choice of food
My personality is held together with Sellotape
A loose fit just like a numb junkies' hate

I pretty my face with all this cream and stuff
Ugliness inside much harder to cover up
I lack the thought to care about politics
Just do what I like ain't that democratic

Genesis, Huey Lewis, Filofax, CD 5
A backdrop to discuss over expensive wine
Didn't even know when or why I should stop
I feel so stupid like a joke that belongs

I guess all psychos are made out of money
I cannot be saved as liberals keep telling me
I don't wanna be understood I just wanna kill
Out of blandness I am your everyday thrill

Patrick Bateman
We are babies crippled in Christ
Patrick Bateman
Therefore I must be God
I must, I must be God

I touched your lips but now I just paint
Surface reflection all I desired babe
I am melancholy, flower cutting through stone
I'm a crime everybody has at home

Papers hate me but they need my behaviour
The dignity amongst Hollywood trivia
Escape is so cheap of alcohol and whores
Mine's the sanity of exclusive gun laws

Art critics say porno's easily obscene
Late show retards Dice Clay is true poetry
They've never tried living underneath the water
That's real end of the century nausea

Patrick Bateman
We are babies crippled in Christ
Patrick Bateman
Therefore I must be God
I must, I must be God

Patrick Bateman
We are babies crippled in Christ
Patrick Bateman
I f**ked God up the ass
I f**ked God up the ass

Patrick Bateman
Patrick Bateman...

"I pledge allegiance to the flag / Of the United States Of America / And to the republic for which it stands / One nation under God / Indivisible with liberty And justice for all"

I put you on a pedestal
I look at you, you're beautiful
I put you on a pedestal
I feel ok just for a while

I put you on a pedestal
I put you where you belong
I put you on a pedestal
I put me in my own heaven

Willing to be put in my place
Willing to live in this space

You make me feel, make me feel celestial
Pedestal, put you on a pedestal
You make me feel, make me feel celestial

You make me feel, make me feel celestial
Pedestal, put you on a pedestal
You make me feel, make me feel celestial...

PENNY ROYALTY
ALBUM : RADIO 1'S EVENING SESSION PRIORITY TUNES

I'm on my time with everyone
I have a very bad posture

Sit and drink pennyroyal tea
Distill the life inside of me
Sit and drink pennyroyal tea
I'm anaemic royalty

Give me a Leonard Cohen afterworld
So I can sigh eternally

I'm so tired I can't sleep
I'm a liar and a thief
Sit and drink pennyroyal tea
I'm anaemic royalty

I'm on warm milk and laxatives
Cherry-flavoured antacids

Sit and drink pennyroyal tea
Distill the life inside of me
Sit and drink pennyroyal tea
I'm anaemic royalty

PICTURESQUE
ALBUM : GOD SAVE THE MANICS (EP)

I would like, I would prefer no choice
Just one bread, just one milk, one food for all
I'm confused, I only want one truth
I really don't mind being lied to
don't mind being lied to

So Picturesque, Picturesque it's in your heads
So Picturesque, Picturesque now wake yourselves

The shadows is, the shadows is the cross Okay
Judgement must, Judgement must be willing today
Silence is not sacrifice
Crucifixion the easy life
Crucifixion the easy life

So Picturesque, Picturesque it's in your heads
So Picturesque, Picturesque now wake yourselves

The luxury of one more try
Pretend humility the ugly lie
Humility the ugly lie

So Picturesque, Picturesque it's in your heads
So Picturesque, Picturesque now wake yourselves

PROLOGUE TO HISTORY
SINGLE : IF YOU TOLERATE THIS YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE NEXT
ALBUM : THIS IS MY TRUTH TELL ME YOURS

Were we the Kinnock factor
Am I talking private sector
Do I think I'm Shaun William Ryder
Or my former friend whose now undercover
He's gone and I'm no deserter
Perhaps I'm hard all the same

Today a poet who can't play guitar
Tomorrow Steve Ovett has injured his calf
Next year the world's greatest politician
Yesterday the boy who once had a mission

I don't want to be
A prologue to history
A prologue to histor...

So I water my plants with Evian
A brand new Dyson that is decadent
Read my papers and the business section
Check out the Tessas and the pensions
Call my friends and they're alright
So I pray for the safety of the night

Today a poet who can't play guitar
Tomorrow Steve Ovett has injured his calf
Next year the world's greatest politician
Yesterday the boy who once had a mission

I don't want to be
A prologue to history
A prologue to histor...

Remember ethnic cleansing in the highlands
No one says a thing in the middle of En-ger-land
I'm bruised fruit but still taste so nice
But if you look at me you better look twice
I'm talking rubbish to cover up the cracks
An empty vessel who can't make contact

Today a poet who can't play guitar
Tomorrow Phil Bennett's playing outside half
Next year the world's greatest politician
Yesterday the boy who once had a mission

I don't want to be
A prologue to history
A prologue to history
A prologue to history
A prologue

QUARANTINE (IN MY PLACE)
ALBUM FROM : (SHORT FILM) DVD : THE LOVE OF RICHARD NIXON

In my place of quarantine
The world becomes so cold and clean
Recurring, always like a dream
In my place of quarantine

Like a dog with a disease
I never wanted to be free
Never wanted to be free

Like a star, alone and dying
Tells you that there's no denying
Tells you that there's no denying

In my place of quarantine
Gives us a chance, a chance to feel
A damage fading, eternal to be
In my place of quarantine

Like a dog with a disease
I never wanted to be free
Never wanted to be free

Like a star, alone and dying
Tells you that there's no denying
Tells you that there's no denying
In my place of quarantine...

R.P. MACMURPHY
SINGLE : STAY BEAUTIFUL
ALBUM : GENERATION TERRORISTS

Straight jacket your own beauty
Because it is just a breakdown away
From the gutter to the jewel
A symbol sold in investment days
Defenceless as the pages you burn
A baby drowning under profit curve
Money bruises the skin at birth

I just wanna lie down in my bed
Make myself different from the rest
Use a thought to put myself to sleep
Collapsing in the fields where it feels free
Where it feels free
R.P. McMurphy

No more pills and no more drugs

This country pisses debris
Like ugly people made pretty
Underneath cheap make up
Deformed, disguised mind decay
Buy, consume get more credit
Learn to serve a life sentence here
Style yourself in sterility

I just wanna lie down in my bed
Make myself different from the rest
Use a thought to put myself to sleep
Collapsing in the fields where it feels free
Where it feels free
R.P. McMurphy

No more pills and no more drugs...

RAINDROPS KEEP FALLING ON MY HEAD
ALBUM : WARCHILD ALBUM " HELP! "

Raindrops keep falling on my head
Just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothing seems to fit
Oh raindrops keep falling on my head
Keep a-falling

Cos I just done me some talking to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleeping on the job
Oh raindrops keep falling on my head
Keep a-falling

But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness comes up to greet me,
to greet, greet, greet, greet me

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turning red
Crying's not for me
Cos I ain't gonna stop the rain by complaining

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turning red
Crying's not for me
Cos I ain't gonna stop the rain by complaining

Because I'm free, nothing's bothering me
Because I'm free, and nothing's bothering me...

READY FOR DROWNING
ALBUM : THIS IS MY TRUTH TELL ME YOURS

Here's a true story
Said someone to me yesterday
Said he'd heard it in a taxi

Must have had him at my mercy
Drown that poor thing
Put it out of its misery

Condemn it to its future
Deny its history
Deny its history

So where are we going
We are not ready for drowning
So where are we going
We are not ready for drowning

Look through my venetian blinds
Dusting the past off of my mind
Seeing orange everywhere

I'd go to Patagonia
But it's harder there
I'll do anything to prove I care

Fascinated by good
Destroyed by evil
What is there to believe in

So where are we going
We are not ready for drowning
So where are we going
We are not ready for drowning

"I will bring the whole edifice down on their unworthy heads"

So where are we going
We are not ready for drowning
So where are we going
We are not waving we're drowning

REMOVABLES
ALBUM : EVERYTHING MUST GO

Conscience binds you in chains
Trial by stone hammer and nails
No-one made the holes but me
Misery mourns to be devoured

Killed God blood soiled unclean again
Killed God blood soiled skin dead again
Again everywhere again

All removables, all transitory
All removables, passing always
All removables, all transitory
All removables, passing always

Never grown preserved gently
A bronze moth dies easily
Unknown to others weak to me
Broken hands never ending

Aimless rut of my own perception
Numbly waiting for voices to tell me
For voices to tell me

All removables, all transitory
All removables, passing always...

ROCK 'N' ROLL MUSIC
ALBUM :SINBLE : THE MASSES AGAINST THE CLASSES

Just let me hear some of that rock and roll music
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lose it
Any old time you use it
Rock and roll music
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me

I've got no kick against modern jazz
Unless they try to play it too darn fast
And change the beauty of the melody
Until they sound just like a symphony

That's why I go for that rock and roll music
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lose it
Any old time you use it
Rock and roll music
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me

I took my loved one over cross the tracks
So she can hear my man await a sax
I must admit they have a rockin' band
Man they were going like a hurricane

That's why I go for that rock and roll music
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lose it
Any old way you use it
Rock and roll music
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me

Way down South they gave a jubilee
The jockey folks they had a jamboree
They're drinkin' homebrew from a water cup
The folks dancin' got all shook up

And started playin' that rock and roll music
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lose it
Any old time you use it
Rock and roll music
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me

Don't care to hear 'em play a tango
I'm in the mood to dig a mambo
It's way to early for a congo
So keep a-rockin' that piano

So I can get some of that rock and roll music
Any old way you choose it
It's got a back beat, you can't lose it
Any old time you use it
Rock and roll music
If you want to dance with me
If you want to dance with me

ROSES IN THE HOSPITAL
ALBUM : GOLD AGAINST THE SOUL

Roses in the hospital
Try to pull my fingernails out
Roses in the hospital
I want to cling to something soft
Roses in the hospital
Progressing like a constant war
Roses in the hospital
There's no one to feel ashamed for

All we wanted was a home
Now we are so strung out we wanna own
Like a leaf in the autumn breeze
Like a flood in January
We don't want your f**king love

Roses in the hospital
Stub cigarettes out on my arm
Roses in the hospital
Want to feel something of value
Roses in the hospital
Nothing really makes me happy
Roses in the hospital
Heroin is just too trendy

All we wanted was a home
Now we're so strung out we wanna own
Like a leaf in the autumn breeze
Like a flood in January
We don't want your f**king love

Roses in the hospital
This century achieved so much
Roses in the hospital
To make a voice no voice at all
Roses in the hospital
Flowers cannot express the loss
Roses in the hospital
Torn reflections of burnt out trash
Burnt out trash

Forever ever delayed
Forever ever delayed
Forever
Forever

Forever ever delayed
(Independence is a game)
Forever ever delayed
(Credibility, I'm yawning)
Forever
Forever
Rudi Rudi Rudi can't fail

Forever ever delayed
Forever delayed
Forever
Forever

Forever delayed
The West scratches onto my skin
Forever delayed
Contagious like a suntan
We never felt any sun
Rudi Rudi Rudi gonna fail

ROYAL CORRESPONDENT
ALBUM : KNOW YOUR ENEMY

You've been this way since school
Dysfunctional, translucent
Royalty on your wall
So desperately mundane

They're inbred baby just like you
But you'd love the chance to eat their food
Even though it has been chewed

Royal correspondent
Sad and lonely
Royal correspondent
Kills her daily

Dream of the Daily Mail
It is the Holy Grail
And then the BBC
Your life would be complete

Build a fountain, wash away the poor
Just as long as your motives are pure
Hold on tight or you just might lose her

Royal correspondent
Wears their Sunday best
Royal correspondent
Smarter than the rest...

S.Y.M.M.
ALBUM : THISIS MY TRUTH TELL ME YOURS

The subtext of this song
I've thought about it for so long
But it's really not the sort of thing
That people want to hear us sing

The context of this song
Well I could go on and on
But it's still unfashionable
To believe in principles

South South Yorkshire mass murderer
How can you sleep at night

South South Yorkshire mass murderer
How can you sleep at night

The reason for this song
Well maybe it's a pointless one
But thank you Jimmy McGovern
For reminding me of what lives on

The ending for this song
Well I haven't really thought of one
There's nothing I could ever say
That could really take the pain away

South South Yorkshire mass murderer
How can you sleep at night
South South Yorkshire mass murderer
How can you sleep at night

SCULPTURE OF MAN
SINGLE : FASTER / P.C.P.
ALBUM : THE HOLY BIBLE

War censored
No blood on TV
Cheap entertainment sold like a new deodorant

World War Three
A Sega dreamland
I'd take a whore to the funeral

Sculpture of man
Sculpture of man...

Jesus descends
Dachau is his fathers
Flanders is a corpse under flowers

There's more art In a Burger King
Than the British museum today

Sculpture of man
Sculpture of man...

Wills and Harry dressed in drag
Standing over the sodomised body of their mother
Would make a beautiful poster in Athena

Sculpture of man
Sculpture of man...

SEPIA
SINGLE : KEVIN CARTER
ALBUM : EVERYTHING MUST GO

A framed adolescence
Steeped in the history of you
Stopped in the summer once for you

Experience is lost on me
I am melancholia eternally
But I still smile so stupidly

For the first time ever
I don't understand my television

And just like that moment
In Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
I'm perpetually stuck in a sepia film
But bleeding inside I manage to keep it all in
I keep it all in

I've spoken so much rubbish
Done it in no time at all
Feelings are so fatal in the fall

No you never kissed me
Never felt anything for me
Sepia the stain I remembered

In these unwritten diaries
That can never breathe, never breathe

And just like the moment
In Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
I'm perpetually stuck in a sepia film
But bleeding inside I manage to keep it all in
I keep it all in...

SHE IS SUFFERING
ALBUM : THE HOLY BIBLE

Beauty finds refuge in herself
Lovers wrapped inside each others lies
Beauty is such a terrible thing
She is suffering yet more than death

She is suffering
She s*cks you deeper in
She is suffering
You exist within her shadow

Beauty she is scarred into man's soul
A flower attracting lust, vice and sin
A vine that can strangle life from a tree
Carrion surrounding, picking on leaves

She is suffering
She s*cks you deeper in
She is suffering
You exist within her shadow

Beauty she poisons unfaithful all
Stifled, her touch is leprous and pale
The less she gives the more you need her
No thoughts to forget when we were children

She is suffering
She s*cks you deeper in
She is suffering
Nature's lukewarm pleasure

SLASH 'N' BURN
ALBUM : GENERATION TERRORISTS

You need your stars, even killers have prestige
Access to a living you will not see
24 boredom, I'm convicted instantly
Gorgeous poverty of created needs

Slash and burn
Kill to live
Kill for kicks
Third world to the first
Kill to live

Worms in the garden more real than a McDonalds
Drain your blood and let the Exxon spill in
Look around here, you see nothing is very real
Chained to economy now famine has been

Slash and burn
Kill to live
Kill for kicks
Third world to the first
Kill to live

That's all you need
That's all you need
That's all you need
That's all you need

Madonna drinks Coke and so you can too
Taste's real good not like a sweet poison should
Too much comfort to get decadent
Politics here's death and God is safer sex

Slash and burn
Kill to live
Kill for kicks
Third world to the first
Kill to live
Kill for kicks

Slash and burn
Kill to live
Kill for kicks
Third world to the first

SLEEPFLOWER
ALBUM : GOLD AGAINST THE SOUL

Morning always seems too stale to justify
Lament blossoms, hours minutes of our lives
Broken thoughts run through your empty mind
At least a beaten dog knows how to lie

I feel like I'm missing pieces of sleep
A memory fades to a pale landscape
You were an extinction, a desert heat
A blind illness of my anxiety

Endless hours in bed, no peace in this mind
No one knows the hell where innocence dies
Fragments crawling like cobwebs on stone
Blows away the safety only a sleeping pill knows

I feel like I'm missing pieces of sleep
A memory fades to a pale landscape
You were an extinction, a desert heat
A blind illness of my anxiety

I feel like I'm missing pieces of sleep
A memory fades to a pale landscape
You were an extinction, a desert heat
A blind illness of my anxiety

SMALL BLACK FLOWERS THAT GROW IN THE SKY
ALBUM : EVERYTHING MUST GO

You have your very own number
They dress your cage in its nature
Once you roared now you just grunt lame
Pace around pathetic pound games

Wanna get out won't miss you sensaround
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out in here you're bred dead quick
For the outside
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

They drag sticks along your walls
Harvest your ovaries dead mothers crawl
Here comes warden, Christ, temple, elder
Environment not yours you see through it all

Wanna get out won't miss you sensaround
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out here you're bred dead quick
For the outside
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

Here chewing your tail is joy

SO DEAD
ALBUM : GENERATION TERRORISTS

Learn to sleep through misery
Never gonna wake feeling free
No one f**ks as good as Marilyn
Plastic surgery sure cures your sins

You need a fix I'm your prostitute
Repression says depravity's cute
I'll feed you lines to make you smile
You are so easy to dehumanise

It's not that I can't find worth in anything
It's just that I can't find worth in enough
It's not that I can't find worth in anything
In your love

Pay for it
Pay for it
Degrade your senses till you hate me

Begging to be cool through nicotine
Decadence costs but she must be clean
Build up walls so you can't feel
When you get high "It's so unreal"

Days fade in and I need the night
I've seen your dumb face all of my life
Eyes close down, I don't wanna see
Broken communion of the twentieth century

It's not that I can't find worth in anything
It's just that I can't find worth in enough
It's not that I can't find worth in anything
In your love

Pay for it
Pay for it
You're gonna pay for my intelligence

Pay for it
Pay for it
Cos I'm a slut and you just s*ck

Pay for it
Pay for it
Degrade your senses till you hate me

Pay for it
Pay for it
We promote all sickness and disease
You're gonna pay for my intelligence
Cos I'm a slut and you just s*ck

You're so dead
You're so dead

SO WHY SO SAD
ALBUM : KNOW YOUR ENEMY

Things get clear when I feel free
When whatever's next comes easily
When gentle hands give life to me
When your eyes fill with tiny tears

When I'm this still you are my life
So at ease in the midnight sky
But my insides will look like war
Paralysed except through my thought

So why so sad
You live and you love
So why so sad
Dependent on above
Searching for the dead sea scrolls
So why, so why so sad

My smile as real as a hyena's
Burns an expressway to my skull
But I'll stick myself together again
Spirit so low that I no longer pretend

So why so sad
You live and you love
So why so sad
Dependent on above
Searching for the dead sea scrolls
So why, so why so sad

So why so sad
You live and you love
So why so sad
Dependent on above
Searching for the dead sea scrolls
So why, so why so sad
So why, so why so sad...

SOCIALIST SERENADE
SINGLE : YOU STOLE THE SUN FROM MY HEART
ALBUM : THIS IS MY TRUTH TELL ME YOURS

What's the point in an education
When you have to pay for the privilege
This side of the truth where no sun shines
They don't count - the cripples and the blind

I was thinking everybody had a chance
Like a dream stretched away too far
All this time such a debt to the city
I don't know who is the real enemy

This is a socialist serenade
Yes I have money but I hate champagne
This is a socialist serenade
I can't see the past anywhere

Some greater benefit for the people
Ha ha ha ha we all believe in you
Is it about the politics of celebrity
Or endless days in the sun of Tuscany

This is a socialist serenade
Yes I have money but I hate champagne
This is a socialist serenade
I can't see the past anywhere, anywhere

This is a socialist serenade
Yes I have money but I hate champagne
This is a socialist serenade
I can't see the past anywhere, anywhere

Change your name to "New"
Forget the f**king Labour

SOLITUDE SOMETIMES IS
ALBUM : LIFEBLOOD

Solitude sometimes is
The place that I would like to live
Solitude sometimes is
When nothing really seems to fit

If black were truly black not grey
It might provide some depth to pray
To black out all the worlds of men
And demons too, but not even then
Solitude sometimes is

Solitude sometimes is
Life that no longer exists
Solitude sometimes is
When there's nothing left to give

If black were truly black not grey
It might provide some depth to pray
To black out all the worlds of men
And demons too, but not even then
Solitude sometimes is

Drop your bombs on all I see
Leave this world alone for me
The thing I need to hide behind
It reigns beneath my holy skies

If black were truly black not grey
It might provide some depth to pray
To black out all the worlds of men
And demons too, but not even then
Solitude sometimes is
Solitude sometimes is...

SORROW 16
SINGLE : MOTOWN JUNK
SINGLE YOU LOVE US
ALBUM : GENERATION TERRORISTS

Cut your hair in front of businessmen
Kill yourself and censor health
Destroy words and ignore their truth
Wanna die and have never worked

I feel like falling, I feel like falling
I feel like falling, I feel like falling...

I can't feel no need to care
Narcotic of ambition poisoned my air
Wearing hate like they wear money
s*cking down vodka, spitting out Perrier

I feel like falling, I feel like falling
I feel like falling, I feel like falling
I feel like falling, I feel like falling
In hate!

Oh the road is beautiful
You live stoned in obedience
Your vanity kills people
Paint your ego in blood

Oh the road is beautiful

The wall is a reason for you to believe
There is too many numbers for us to sleep
The wall is a reason for you to believe
Because there are too many numbers, numbers, numbers...

Oh the road is beautiful
You live stoned in obedience
Your vanity kills people
Paint your ego in blood
Oh the road is
B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L....

SOUL CONTAMINATION
ALBUM : GENERATION TERRORISTS

Everyone is staring with the glaze of obsession
Interlocking cartels bypassing the bone
The empty statement of art school dissension
Institutionalised expression of mass control

And when America fills in the hole
Your pile of misery where centuries be
And he does win a holiday after a poll
One per cent interest stand up with glee

Soul contamination spreads the germs of finance
Making weak minds think this is what they want
Power facts are brutally sold to worn darkened skin
Arise the new scum arise to the sound of a drum

With your desk degrees in civil engineering
They're drawing up plans for a future for themselves
And sweet daddy buys up a university
On a mission tied next to suits

Soul contamination
Die because you crossed by fire
Soul contamination
Poverty expressed in your heart
Soul contamination
Arise, surrender, burn
Soul contamination
Do you rise up

THE SOULMATES
JAPANESE VERSION OF LIFEBLOOD

The soulmates
They last the distance
They make promises
They feel like misfits

The soulmates
They need each other
They're faithful warriors
They want for nothing

The graffiti
You left on me
Means every part
Is still bleeding

No souvenirs
No symphonies
No dead feelings

The soulmates...

The soulmates
They take their place
They slip away
They remain safe

Oh, the graffiti
You left on me
Means every part
Is still bleeding

Oh, no souvenirs
No symphonies
No dead feelings

Oh, the soulmates
The soulmates...

SPECTATORS OF SUICIDE
ALBUM : GENERATION TERRORISTS

Obedience to the law is free desire
Under curfew from neon barbed wire
Wasting away this country, wearing like a born dead
Free heroin shots for those who never beg

Spectators of suicide
Exploding in society's eyes
Democracy is an empty lie
Dead like our yesterdays tonight

The only free choice is refusal to pay
Life reduced to suicidal pain
Cigarettes a life-line, it's safety in death
Choking on the billboards, advertised and fed

Spectators of suicide
Exploding in society's eyes
Democracy is an empty lie
Dead like our yesterdays tonight

You're gonna shoot us dead with decadence
You're gonna shoot us dead with decadence

"SO THE CONCEPT is this, BASICALLY / We're gonna walk on this nation / We're gonna walk on this racist power structure / And we're gonna say to the whole d*mn government: 'Stick 'em up motherf**ker This is a hold up / We come for what's ours'"

Obedience to the law is free desire
Under curfew from sharp neon barbed wire
Wasting away this country, wearing like born dead
Free heroin shots for those who will no longer beg

Spectators of suicide
Exploding in societies eyes
Spitting glass from our mouths
Dying like yesterday

The only free choice is the refusal to pay
Life reduced to suicide or comfort pain
Cigarette dead, lips s*ck red
Choked on the same line that we've all said

Spectators of suicide
Exploding in society's eye
Spitting glass from our mouths
Dying like yesterday

You're gonna shoot us dead with the words we said

Paint your lips things fall apart
Flowers of hate caress my skin now
Spend my time s*cked up inside
Mutilation kick off all you believe in

Starlover, you're just a souvenir
Starlover, you're just another prayer
Starlover, oh you touch me so

Feels like faces without kisses

Sterile wants spin in my head
I don't need culture, I spit it out
Twist and fall, wounds don't choke
I piss on records, wanna see you dead

Starlover, you're just a souvenir
Starlover, you're just another prayer
Starlover oh you touch me so

A body voice born under torture

Leper cult disciples of a still born Christ
I worship stone so lance my eyes

Miles apart from anyone
Summer airwaves of killing oxygen
We queue consuming anything
Hate all songs, aesthetic slavery yeah

Starlover, you're just a souvenir
Starlover, you're just another prayer
Starlover, oh you touch me so

Feels like faces without kisses

STAY BEAUTIFUL
ALBUM : GENERATION TERRORISTS

Find your faith in your security
All broken up at seventeen
Jam your brain with broken heroes
Love your masks and adore your failure

We're a mess of eyeliner and spraypaint
DIY destruction on Chanel chic
In the culture of consumption
This is a culture of destruction

Don't wanna see your face
Don't wanna hear your words
Why don't you just...

Don't wanna see your face
Don't wanna hear your words
Why don't you just...

Babes on the run with poisoned lips
Wrap your arms around this everlasting kiss
Clinging to your own sense of waste
All we love is lonely wreckage

Your school your dole and your chequebook dreams
Your clothes your suits and your pension schemes
Now you say you know how we feel
But don't fall in love cos we hate you still

Don't wanna see your face
Don't wanna hear your words
Why don't you just...

Don't wanna see your face
Don't wanna hear your words
Why don't you just..

Destroyed by madness
Destroyed by madness
Destroyed by madness
Anxiety is freedom

STAY WITH ME
SINGLE : SHE IS SUFFERING
ALBUM : THE HOLY BIBLE

"Where's me man, where's me man Bernard
This is our own sweet memory to our beautiful manager"

In the mornin' don't say you love me
Cos I'll only kick you in the head
I know your name is Rita
Cos your perfume's smellin' sweeter
Since last time you were down on the floor

I don't mean to sound degrading
But you won't take much persuading
While it gets too far and not laugh about
Red lips, hair and fingernails
I hear you're a mean old Jezebel
Let's go upstairs and read my tarot cards

Oh stay with me, stay with me
Mr Martin Hall, you're gonna stay with me
Stay with me, stay with me
Cos tonight you're gonna stay with me

Close it on Sunday morning
Cos I'll only kick you out of the door
Yeah I'll pay your cab home
You can even use my best cologne
But don't be here in the mornin' when I wake up

Stay with me, stay with me
Cos tonight you're gonna stay with me
Stay with me, stay with me
Cos tonight you're gonna stay with me

STRIP IT DOWN
SINGLE : NEW ART RIOT (EP)
ALBUM : GENERATIONS TERRORISTS

Ain't no fun at the government hall
s*cked back injustice sits nicely next to smiles
Paranoia at the heels of too much greed
Obedience an art form while the sad bleed

Success and love dictate while skin touches fashion
Consumerism beauty for cheap appeal
I don't wanna dance for people to watch
Smother my life in interest accounts

Outside life brings down genocide
And consumer self-hate leads to designer bullshit
Hate is art and we steal cars
Decaying flowers in the playground of the rich

You can launch sweetly and say nice things
But I ain't ever on the way up
My only way is down on disease that tries to suffocate
The pure ideals that turn to hate

Strip it down

Tastes better down there

I'm going down to suicide alley
Cos the scenes are dead
And it's the only place for me

And I'm going down to suicide alley
Where you can't get at me
And I'm going down to suicide alley
Where I can be what I want to be

I'm going down to suicide alley
Cos the air that I breathe
Tastes better down there

I'm going down to suicide alley
Cos the scenes are dead
And it's the only place for me

And I'm going down to suicide alley
Where you can't get at me
And I'm going down to suicide alley
Where I can be what I want to be

You wanna leave the world behind
With your eyes make a different scene
Up in suicide alley
You can be what I want you to be

You wanna clean away my mind
With your eyes make a different scene
Up in suicide alley
You can be what I want you to be

SYMPHONY OF TOURETTE
ALBUM : GOLD AGAINST THE SOUL

Stutter stutter says the little boy
I wanna blow a hole in my head

I swear what this world wants to hear
Trapped in what we know as truth syndrome
Stutter stutter silence no friend

Children can be cruel she said
So I smashed her in the f**king head
Sorry dear that's the nature of Tourette

Stutter stutter nothing else but me
I twitch and turn while underneath

My contemporaries are so in control
f**k you f**k you I grunt and groan
Stutter stutter can't keep it no more

Children can be cruel she said
So I smashed her in the f**king head
Sorry dear it's the nature of Tourette

stutter stutter are your eyes closed
You know a hole through which you can fall

But I can't even be bothered to hang on
When you're this numb news don't register
I just opened my eyes

TAKE THE SKINHEADS BOWLING
SINGLE : AUTRALIA
ALBUM : EVERYTHING MUST GO

Every day I get up and pray to Jah
And he increases the number of clocks by exactly one
Everybody's coming home for lunch these days
Last night there were skinheads on my lawn

Take the skinheads bowling
Take them bowling
Take the skinheads bowling
Take them bowling

Some people say that bowling alleys got big lanes
Some people say that bowling alleys all look the same
There's not a line here that goes here that rhymes with anything
I had a dream last night, but I forget what it was

Take the skinheads bowling
Take them bowling
Take the skinheads bowling
Take them bowling

I had a dream last night about you my friend
I had a dream, I wanted to sleep next to plastic
I had a dream, I wanted to lick your knees
I had a dream, it was about nothing

Take the skinheads bowling
Take them bowling
Take the skinheads bowling
Take them bowlinG...

I wanna wake to a shot parade of wealth
And take a spray can to my useless vote
I don't like your city of Dresden dance
I'm drowning in a manufactured ego-f**k

We're dead end dolls and nothing's moving
We're dead end dolls and nothing's moving
We're dead end dolls and nothing's moving

Speeding so lonely into wall after wall
Teenage 20/20 beat the in-call
Sick to the stomach of our fingertip scrawl
All your rebellion corporation owned

We're dead end dolls and nothing's moving
We're dead end dolls and nothing's moving
We're dead end dolls and nothing's moving

TENNESSEE
ALBUM : GENERATION TERRORISTS

Your dream can never earn enough
Ultimate nihilistic love

Tennessee nights just zip-code love
Always believe the comfort of strangers
Tennessee eyes graffiti once blue
Media sells a trace of hate
Media sells a trace of hate

Our epitaph reads like your sin
Subvert, destroy, beat derelict

Tennessee nights just zip-code love
Commanche becomes as maggot
Tennessee eyes orange once blue
Media sells a trace of hate
Media sells a trace of hate

His pain forces her agony
His heart PMRC
His heart PMRC
The white man is disease
His heart PMRC

Your dream can never earn enough
Ultimate nihilistic love

SINGLE : SUICIDE ALLEY

They'd never beat that deeper in
Cos I want her and she wants him
Tennessee nights just zip-code love
Take those pills and now she'll dream on
Tennessee's eyes orange once blue
Tennessee's gone and I get low
Tennessee's gone and I get low

Wet through the desert soaked to the skin
Gasoline I wear loose lines I kick
Tennessee nights just zip-code love
Take those pills and now she'll dream on
Tennessee's eyes orange once blue
Tennessee's gone and I get low
Tennessee's gone and I get low

And my heart's f**king gutted
And my money's on ice
And my money is running out
And my money is running out
And my money is running out

They'd never beat that deeper in
Cos I want her and she wants him
Wet through the desert soaked to the skin
(I'll never forget you, I'll never forget you)
Gasoline I wear loose lines I kick

THE CONVALESCENT
ALBUM : KNOW YOUR ENEMY

My bedroom wall recalls what's in my head
A collage constructed and constantly fed
Goya mixes Picasso but it's hardly Spain
Look through the window, pissing down with rain

Lovely labradors outnumber musicians
Bonnie and Clyde have made their good intentions
Pity poor Payne Stewart in a death bubble
But what a swing and so much bottle

So I convalesce and I ease the stress
Cos DNA means does not accept
So I convalesce and I ease the stress
Cos DNA means does not accept

Kleenex kitchen towels and teletext TV
My favourite inventions of the twentieth century
Haile Gebreselassie looks so sweet and young
Eyes quickly shift to Jack Kevorkian

Uneven and tidal all with exit policies
Followed by anti-ballistic migraines
And Brian Warner has a tasty little ass
Scared of cash machines and the Mardi Gras

So I convalesce and I ease the stress
Cos DNA means does not accept
So I convalesce and I ease the stress
Cos DNA means does not accept

Alberto Juanterino unique in his field
These are the things that make you feel
Klaus Kinski with love off Werner Herzog
Scream until the war is over
Scream until the war is over

Srebrenica cousin of Treblinka
Scream until the war is over
And Dante's Inferno slides into dismorphia
So scream until the war is over

So I convalesce and I ease the stress
Cos DNA means does not accept
So I rehabilitate and get my body straight
Cos nothing fits like it used to fit

Won't someone give me a gun
Oh well it's for my brother
He writes the long line right down my spine
Oh do you believe in love

Slow down, slow down, you're taking me over
And so we drown, so we drown, stop taking me over

Will someone give me some fun
As the skin flies around us
We kiss in his room to a popular tune
Oh real drowners

So slow down, slow down, stop taking me over
And so we drown, so we drown
Stop taking me over

And so we drown, so we drown
Stop taking me over
And so we drown, so we drown
Stop taking me over
Stop taking me over

THE EVERLASTING
ALBUM : THIS IS MY TRUTH TELL ME YOURS

The gap that grows between our lives
The gap our parents never had
Stop those thoughts control your mind
Replace the things that you despise
Oh you're old I hear you say
It doesn't mean that I don't care
I don't believe in it anymore
Pathetic acts for a worthless cause

In the beginning when we were winning
When our smiles were genuine
In the beginning when we were winning
When our smiles were genuine

But now unforgiven, the everlasting
Everlasting...

The world is full of refugees
They're just like you and just like me
But as people we have a choice
To end the void with all its force
So don't forget or don't pretend
It's all the same now in the end
It was set in a different life
Destroys my days and haunts my nights

In the beginning when we were winning
When our smiles were genuine
In the beginning when we were winning
When our smiles were genuine

But now unforgiven, the everlasting
Everlasting...

In the beginning when we were winning
When our smiles were genuine
In the beginning when we were winning
When our smiles were genuine

But now unforgiven, the everlasting
Everlasting...

THE GIRL WHO WANTED TO BE GOD
ALBUM : EVERYTHING MUST GO

There are no sunsets just silence
You could see that she was true and faithless
But see through the future and forget all the lies
Black out the words for the blind have eyes

I am the girl that wanted to be God
I am the girl that wanted to be God

There are times when you feel hopeless
Just for once for no-one else we are blameless
The dawn is still breaking its heaven is so high
She told the truth, told the truth and then she lied

I am the girl that wanted to be God
I am the girl that wanted to be God

Hold me she said love me to death

I am the girl that wanted to be God...

THE INTENSE HUMMING OF EVIL
ALBUM : THE HOLY BIBLE

"The court has come / The court of the Nations / And into the courtroom will come The martyrs of Majdanek and Oswiecim / From the ditch of Kerch the dead will rise / They will rise from the graves / They will rise from the flames / Bringing with them the acrid smoke / And the deathly odour of scorched and martyred Europe / And the children, they too will come / Stern and merciless / The butchers had no pity on them / Now the victims will judge the butchers / Today the tear of a child is the judge / The grief of a mother is the prosecutor"

You were what you were
Clean cut and unbecoming
Recreation for the masses
You always mistook fists for flowers

Welcome welcome
Soldier smiling
Funeral march for agony's last edge

6 million screaming souls
Maybe misery, maybe nothing at all
Lives that wouldn't have changed a thing
Never counted, never mattered, never be

Arbeit macht frei
Transport of invalids
Hartheim Castle breathes us in
In block 5 we worship malaria
Lagerstrasse, poplar trees
Beauty lost, dignity gone
Rascher surveys us butcher bacteria

Welcome welcome soldier smiling
Soon infected, nails broken, hunger's a word

6 million screaming souls
Maybe misery, maybe nothing at all
Lives that wouldn't have changed a thing
Never counted, never mattered, never be

Drink it away, every tear is false
Churchill no different
Wished the workers bled to a machine

Hello it's us again
We're still so in love with you
And yes we mean it too
Yes we're so in love with you

Hello it's us again
You thought you were our friends
Success is an ugly word
Especially in your tiny world

The masses against the classes
I'm tired of giving a reason
When the future is what we believe in

We love the winter
It brings us closer together

So can you hurt us anymore
Can you feel like it was before
Or are you lost forever more
Messed up and dead on alcohol

Hello fond farewell my dears
I hope you hear this nice and clear
Our love is unconditional
Our hate is yours to feed upon

The masses against the classes
I'm tired of giving a reason
When the future is what we believe in

We love the winter
It brings us closer together

The masses against the classes
I'm tired of giving a reason
When we're the only thing left to believe in

We love the winter
It brings us closer together

A slave begins by demanding justice and ends by wanting to wear a crown

THEME FROM M*A*S*H (SUICIDE IS PAINLESS)
SINGLE : THEME FROM M*A*S*H
ALBUM : NME'S RUBY TRAX COMPLIATION

Through early morning fog I see
Visions of the things to be
The pains that are withheld for me
I realise and I can see

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

That game of life is hard to play
I'm gonna lose it anyway
The losing card i'll some day lay [jdb sings: "the losing card of some delay"]
So this is all I have to say

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
I can take or leave it if I please

The sword of time will pierce our skin
It doesn't hurt when it begins
But as it works its way on in
The pain grows stronger, watch it burn

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

A brave man once requested me
To answer questions that are key
Is it to be or not to be
And I replied oh why ask me

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I...

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And you can do the same thing if you please

THIS IS YESTERDAY
ALBUM : THE HOLY BIBLE

Do not listen to a word I say
Just listen to what I can keep silent
The only way to gain approval
Is by exploiting the very thing that cheapens me

And I stare at the sky
And it leaves me blind
I close my eyes
And this is yesterday

Someone somewhere soon will take care of you
I repent, I'm sorry, everything is falling apart
Houses as ruins and gardens as weeds
Why do anything when you can forget everything

And I stare at the sky
And it leaves me blind
I close my eyes
And this is yesterday

I stare at the sky
And it leaves me blind
I close my eyes
And this is yesterday

TO REPEL GHOSTS
ALBUM : LIFEBLOOD

When the disappearing begins
The ghosts we kept within
Can break free from inside
And untie our blindfold eyes

To repel ghosts
To repel ghosts...

So when the ghosts find you
Be careful but be graceful
For all will be revealed
When ghosts become set free

A soul in pain Has no image to reclaim

To repel ghosts
To repel ghosts

A soul in pain Has no image to reclaim

To repel ghosts
To repel ghosts

Build bridges and not roads
Make love, make hate, make war

A soul in pain Has no image to reclaim

To repel ghosts
To repel ghosts

A soul in pain Has no image to reclaim

To repel ghosts
To repel ghosts

TOO COLD HERE

Born in burial gowns, recessing slowly
You soon wish you couldn't see at all
Tortured in the mind, six voices alone
Futile gestures, emotionless groans

Everyone asks what's wrong but what's right
And a cute lie makes everything uptight
To kill your dream before it's considered
To live in silence, airless closet, no vision

It's easier to make love to a stranger
Than to ask a friend to call
Suspicion knows nothing
And is known for not much at all
Much at all

Too cold here
Ten years of bleeding inside
Always look for walls
To lean beside

Too cold here
Ten years of bleeding its eyes
Always look for shade
To cover your eyes

Self-pity yourself is so shallow
I'm so sick in mind and body, heart cold as stone
Whiskey mac aroma, peace of mind
Hello Mr Samson, you can clean my soul

Wake up sighing mass for the bleeding
Never share sadness, mine, no man prays painless
Coalescing, mine are hidden rooms
Cannot give anything, I never could

Prison, it's only four walls but sometimes
The mind is the smallest prison of all
Offering there upon offering
As a ball with a touch feels through its fall
Through its fall

Too cold here
Ten years of bleeding inside
Always look for walls
To lean beside

Too cold here
Ten years of bleeding its eyes
Always look for shade
To cover your eyes

TRAIN IN VAIN
SINGLE : YOUR STOLE THE SUN FROM MY HEART
ALBUM : THIS IS MY TRUTH TELL ME YOURS

You say you stand by your man
So tell me something I don't understand
You said you love me and that's a fact
Then you left me, said you felt trapped

Well some things you can explain away
But this heartache still remains this day

Did you stand by me
Did you stand by me
No way

All the times
When we were close
I'll remember these things the most
I see all my dreams come tumbling down
I can't be happy without you around

So alone I keep the wolves at bay
And there is only one thing I can say

Did you stand by me
Did you stand by me
No way

You must explain why this must be
Did you lie when you spoke to me

Did you stand by me

Now I got a job
But it don't pay
I need new clothes
I need somewhere to stay
But without all these things I can do
But without your love I won't make it through

But you don't seem to see my point of view
I suppose there's nothing I can do

Did you stand by me
Did you stand by me
No way

You must explain why this must be
Did you lie when you spoke to me?

Did you stand by me
Did you stand by me
No way

TSUNAMI
ALBUM : THIS IS MY TRUTH TELL ME YOURS

For you my dear sister
Holding onto me forever
Disco dancing with the rapists
Your only crime is silence

Can't work at this anymore
Can't move I want to stay at home
Tied up to all these crutches
Never far from your hands

Tsunami tsunami
Came washing over me
Tsunami tsunami
Came washing over me
Can't speak, can't think, won't talk, won't walk

The doctors tell me that I'm cynical
I tell them that it must be chemical
So what am I doing girl
Cry into my drink I disappear

Eyes for teeth grating over me
Bring down the shadows of my mind
Sleep and breathe under our sheets
Inhale the anxiety in between, in between, in between, in between

Tsunami tsunami
Came washing over me...

Through September under the weather

In between, in between, in between, in between

Tsunami tsunami
Came washing over me...

Take the G.I.'s I will have the spies
