Some Sad Song (hidden track)
. . .



Take me away, take me away
You said that you were gonna stay
But you're always lying anyway
You're gonna suffer if you don't start breathing now
Now that I need you
You're going away

Everyday sinking into quicksand
Follow me down the drain

But it doesn't matter anyway
You're gonna get yours any day
And while you put the blame on me
If you could only see yourself as others see
Now that I need you
You're going insane

Everyday sinking into quicksand
Follow me down the drain
Everyday drinking in the same bar
Drowning my sorrows away

Take me away, take me today
Or I'm never gonna get away
But it makes no difference to me
It's just the sound of one more rock star bleeding out
Now that I need you
You're out of the frame

Day by day, sinking into quicksand
Follow me down the drain
Everyday drinking in the same bar
Made mine the same again

. . .



Don't just stand there watching it happening
I can't stand it
Don't feel it
Something's telling me
Don't wanna go out this way
But have a nice day

Then read it in the headlines
Watch it on the TV
Put it in the background
Stick it in the bag
Stick it in the bag

For the beautiful occupation
The beautiful occupation
You don't need an invitation
To drop in upon a nation

I'm too cynical
I'm just sitting here
I'm just wasting my time
Half a million civillians gonna die today
But look the wrong way

Then read it in the headlines
Watch it on the TV
Put it in the background
Stick it in the bag
Stick it in the bag

For the beautiful occupation
The beautiful occupation
You don't need an invitation
To drop in upon a nation

Don't just stand there watching it happening
I can't stand it
Don't feel it
Something telling me
Don't wanna go out this way
But have a nice day

Then read it in the headlines
Watch it on the TV
Put it in the background
Stick in the bag
Stick in the bag

For the beautiful occupation
The beautiful occupation
Don't need an invitation
To drop in upon a nation

The beautiful occupation
The beautiful occupation
So much for an intervention
Don't call the united nations

. . .



Keeping up appearances
Keeping up with the Jones'
Fooling my selfish heart
Going through the motions

But I'm fooling myself
I'm fooling myself
Cause you say you love me
And then you do it again, you do it again
You say your sorry's
And then you do it again, you do it again

Everybody thinks you're well
Everybody thinks I'm ill
Watching me fall apart
Falling under your spell

But you're fooling yourself
You're fooling yourself
Cause you say you love me
And then you do it again, you do it again
You say your sorry's
And then you do it again, you do it again
And again and again and again and again

But you're fooling yourself
You're fooling yourself
Cause you say you love me
And then you do it again, you do it again
You say your sorry's
And then you do it again, you do it again
You say you love me
And then you do it again, you do it again
You say your sorry's
And then you do it again, you do it again
And again and again and again and again

. . .



Now I don't know that your tie is straight
Your words are crooked and you're gonna pay
In ten years time they're gonna say
That this was the momment when you threw it away

And it's all wrong, handbags at dawn
And turn the radio off to hear a song
Oh please don't give up
You have a voice, don't lose it
You have a choice, so choose it
You have a brain, so use it
The time has come to
Peace the fuck out

Now I don't know what you're talking about
There's too much shit pouring out of your mouth
The time is up, the secret's out
The truth's gonna catch you going south

But it's all wrong, handbags at dawn
And turn the radio off to hear a song
Oh please don't give up
You have a voice, so use it

Yeah but it's all wrong, handbags at dawn
And turn the radio off to hear a song
Oh please don't give up
You have a voice, don't lose it
You have a choice, so choose it
You have a brain, so use it
The time has come to
Peace the fuck out

Crowd: peace the fuck out (repeat)

. . .



How many hearts
Does it take to break
All of the bonds
That young lovers make
Hoping to find
The next golden egg
One that will shine
Through the rest of time

How many roads
Must there need to be
Hoping inside
You could mean to me
Open your mouth
Build your sermon there
Give me more time
Do the best I can

Hopelessly hoping our plan will wake up
Hoping it all will be fine
Holding our candles through weather or not
Love be the enemy now
Now for the rest of time

A long time ago
There was only me
And there was no
Rings eternally
Won't be the same
No one there to blame
No longer care

And you are, and you are a new age...

Hopelessly hoping our plan will wake up
Hoping it all will be fine
Holding our candles through weather or not
Love be the enemy now
Now for the rest of time

And you are and you are a new age...

. . .



Paperclips, melody
Hold together all these memories
Memories
Memories
I don't wanna think at all

I don't wanna be like you anymore
I don't wanna see your face at my door
And I'll never leave like you, that's for sure
I don't wanna be like you anymore, anymore, anymore

Take a trip, down memory lane
You will never wanna go again
Take your leave
Take your leave
I don't wanna sing at all

I don't wanna be like you anymore
I don't wanna see your face at my door
And I'll never leave like you, that's for sure
I don't want to live like you anymore, anymore, anymore

Ever talk, decide out
We get by, we'll get by
And I won't take this
No more sadness, no, no

Paperclips, memories
Hold together all these melodies
Melodies
Melodies
I don't want to sing at all

I don't want to be like you anymore
I don't want to see your face at my door
And I'll never leave like you, that's for sure
I don't want to live like you anymore, anymore, anymore

. . .


Home and away
Life goes on the same
We bury the pain
And hold on to love
Hear the song
Sing along
But what does it change

Oh this life is so confusing
Feels like I'm always losing

We come in
Knowing everything
But don't say a word
Till they teach it away
Words are found
Too close to the edge
That we don't dare say

And this will turn into something else Something else
And when it does I'll be somewhere else
Somewhere else
Where else?

And you say
I should be myself
Despite all the wrong (dragging you back)
Forgive and then forgone and on and on
And on and on

But this life is so confusing
Feels like I'm always losing

And this'll turn into something else
Something else
But when it does I'll be somewhere else
Somewhere else
Where else?

. . .


If I told you a secret
You won't tell a soul
Will you hold it and keep it alive
Cause it's burning a hole
And I can't get to sleep
And I can't live alone in this lie
So look up
Take it away
Don't look da-da-da- down the mountain
If the world isn't turning
Your heart won't return
Anyone, anything, anyhow

So take me don't leave me
Take me don't leave me
Baby, love will come through it's just waiting for you

Well I stand at the crossroads
Of highroads and lowroads
And I got a feeling it's right
If it's real what I'm feeling
There's no makebelieving
The sound of the wings of the flight of a dove
Take it away
Don't look da-da-da down the mountain
If the world isn't turning
Your heart won't return anyone anything anyhow...

So take me don't leave me
Take me don't leave me
Baby, love will come through it's just waiting for you

Oh look up
Take it away
Don't look da-da-da- down the mountain
If the world isn't turning
Your heart won't return
Anyone, anything, anyhow

So take me don't leave me
Take me don't leave me
Baby, love will come through it's just waiting for you

love will come through...
love will come through...

. . .



Memories fill your harbor
History to be made
Jealousy in the cupboard
You with me until the grave

Mid-life krysis, you invited everyone
You can't wake, you can't wake from this nightmare

Everyday is like the movies
Third world war on the rise
Take it in the city
Making love to get high

Mid-life krysis, you invited everyone
You can't wake, you can't wake from this nightmare

I waste my time, I waste my
Don't waste my time, don't waste my
I waste my time, I waste my
Don't waste my time, don't waste my

Little Jane, say you're in love with me
Say it yourself
Maybe then you'll have some children
Maybe you ain't have one

Mid-life krysis, you invited everyone
You can't wake, you can't wake from this nightmare
You invited everyone
You can't wake, you can't wake from this nightmare

. . .



They were following me
They were following everyone
They had visions of me
Holding hands walking in to the sun?
Now people get down, people get down, people get hurt
When you did it to me
I was already in the ground

And I'll never get into your heart
Though I don't even want to start
I'll never get into your heart
I'm just happy to hang around
Happy to hang around
Happy to hang around

Take a picture of me
And show it to everyone
And no more pictures of you
No more love, no more setting sun
Now people get down, people get down, people get hurt
And when you did it to me
I was already in the dirt

And I'll never get into your heart
Though I don't even want to start
I'll never get into your heart
I'm just happy to hang around
Happy to hang around
Happy to hang around

And I'll never get into your heart
Though I don't even want to start
I'll never get into your heart
I'm just happy to hang around
Happy to hang around
Happy to hang around

. . .



Walking down this hill tonight
I had a thought all to myself
As I contemplated the moonlight

We've got it all, we've got it made
I don't know how I got here
But I'm holding on for the crash

Pull myself out of the moon
I know I'll never go there but
It's shining down from up on high
We got it made, we got it made
I don't know what we gotta make
Sooner or later we die

We're apart, go to pieces
While I go to sleep

Look into my heart, oh baby
Don't become a part of the past
You can be a part of the key

Don't turn away, don't run away
Don't leave me hanging by a thread
Shine a little love down on me

We're in love, make your peace
Wasting time is all you need

Walking down this hill tonight
I had a thought it was my own
??? save the starlight
Or shall I be or shall I not be
I don't know I just don't
Feel like kids in night

. . .



In the church one day you will get hurt
In the school teacher's such a fool
And if they would ever come round here
They would ever come
Blame it on my style
Take a pill
Don't tell me how to feel

Bad news and tunes
Sing it from the high
Singing some sad song

Uncle Sam, playing in the sand
Understand, hold my hand
Time is never gonna stop running
Never gonna stop
Take me to the top
Of the trees
Don't take me for a cracked window pane

Bad news and tunes
Are shining from the high
Singing some sad song

Don't rehearse, this is the last verse
In the hearse, going through your purse
And if they would ever laugh, not here
They would ever laugh
Blame it on my style, once again
Don't take me for a ride
In the rain

Bad news and tunes
Shining from the high
Singing some sad song
