B-sides

20 Years
There are twenty years to go
And twenty ways to know
Who will wear
Who will wear the hat
There are twenty years to go
The best of all I hope
Enjoy the ride
The medicine show
Thems the breaks
For we designer fakes
We need to concentrate on more than meets the eye
There are twenty years to go
The faithful and the low
The best of starts, the broken heart, the stone
There are twenty years to go
The punch drunk and the blow
The worst of starts, the mercy part, the phone

And thems the breaks
For we designer fakes
We need to concentrate on more than meets the eye
Thems the breaks
For we designer fakes
But it's you I take 'cause you're the truth not I
There are twenty years to go
A golden age I know
But all will pass will end too fast, you know
There are twenty years to go
And many friends I hope
Though some may hold the rose
Some hold the rope

That's the end, and that's the start of it
That's the whole, and that's the part of it
That's the highs, and that's the heart of it

That's the long, and that's the short of it
That's the best, and that's the test in it
That's the doubt, the doubt, the trust in it
That's the sight, and that's the sound of it
That's the gift
That's the trick in it
You're the truth Not I.....
You're the truth Not I..... (x6)

Black Market Blood
Wasted face that swallowed time
With Armageddon crawling
She's insane, this friend of mine
And she's always bawling

Hear her calling
Hear her calling you
Hear her calling
Hear her calling you

There's a place within her mind
With rains already falling
She's insane, this friend of mine
And she's always bawling

Hear her calling
Hear her calling you
Hear her calling
Hear her calling you

She's preparing for the flood
The deluge and the sliding mud
She's preparing for the flood
Running on black market blood
Black market blood

Wasted face that swallowed time
With Armageddon crawling
She's insane, this friend of mine
And she's always bawling

Hear her calling
Hear her calling you
Hear her calling
Hear her calling you

She's preparing for the flood
The deluge and the sliding mud
She's preparing for the flood
Running on black market blood
Black market blood

Black market blood
Black market blood
Black market


Bubblegun
Take this migraine everywhere I go
Take the fast lane everywhere I go
Take this migraine everywhere I go
Someday, gonna take it slow

Take this migraine everywhere I go
Take the fast lane everywhere I go
Take this migraine everywhere I go
Someday, gonna take it slow

I wanna turn you on
Feels like a loaded gun
Spit out your Bubblegum

Carbon Kid
(lyrics by Alpinestars)

Image image you do what you want
Image image you do what you want
Image image you do what you want
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram

Image image we're leaving the ground
Image image we're leaving the ground
Image image we're leaving the ground
Image image we'll never be found
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram
With a sinister diagram
Sinister diagram

And when this half is over and we claim our second skin
We can can compliment each other on the state that we are in
And when we leave this place forever and we're floating round in space
Take the easy way to heaven with a smile upon your face
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram
Image image you do what you want

Image image you do what you want
Image image you do what you want
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram
Sinister diagram
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram


Drink You Pretty
Sick of drugs and dancing feet
Sick of bars where people meet
Smell of crotch and sheets not clean
Hairy men in magazines
Every city looks the same
Running from the threat of rain
Pillow talk that's just for one
Saturday get nothing done

Lie to me, It takes less time
To drink you pretty
Lie to me, It takes less time
To drink you pretty

Human seas of apathy
Nuclear catastrophe
Jumbos crash into the ground
Governments sleep safe and sound
Mornings glisten cold and bright
Organs stolen every night
Can of beans and fast bouquet
Double jackpot give away

Lie to me
It takes less time
To drink you pretty
Lie to me, It takes less time
To drink you pretty

Hello
Hello pretty
Hello
Hello pretty


Drowning by Numbers
Open up your heart, let me slip inside.
Such determination always tries to turn the tide
Open up your arms, let me dive into
the big, big blue.

Try losing, this chromosome.
It's my choosing, down to the bone.

Open up your heart, let me slip inside.
Such imagination always helps the feeling slide.
Open up your soul, falling back into
the big, big blue.

Try losing, this chromosome.
It's my choosing, down to the bone.

Blood, dive in
blood, drowning
blood, dive in
[repeat]

Open up your heart, let me slip inside.
Auto-flagellation always helps the ghost to hide.
Open up your arms, let me dive into
the big, big blue.

Try losing, this chromosome.
It's my choosing, down to the bone.

Blood, dive in
blood, drowning
blood, dive in
[repeat]


Feel Good Hit Of The Summer
Nicotine valium vicadin marijuana ecstasy and alcohol
Co-co-co-co-co-cocaine


Flesh Mechanic
He tries to embrace her
She wants him to race her
he needs a laser
To get it through her skull
Means and lies and hatreds
tears that fall in sequence
Cold caress
Imprints
Conversation growing dull

Says he's a poet
Lousy protozoan
and he kisses ass for free
I took a vow of silence
When he tries to talk to me
I just turn on the tv

He tries to impress her, mentally undress her
it takes more to possess her
But in his pocket lies a hole
He's got a thousand talents
charisma by the bagful
Aristocratic parents
A rebel with a heart of gold

Says he's a poet
this time he's gonna blow it
'cause he's dancing with his ego
I took a vow of silence
When he reads his work to me
I swallow words like a
Placebo

He's strutting with your flesh mechanic
Gets him in a panic
he's wasting time
'cause everybody is a star
in his eyes

Careful not to give your favours
to your lonesome fucked-up neighbours
I had one who sent me her heart
in a tupperware container
all the movies in my head
they flicker with my bleeding heart
A careless slipping of the tongue
On just another private part

Blatant search for
Stoned affection
Fights the lust that
Breeds infection
Meet me at the
intersection
Don't forget your
fuel injection

He's strutting with your flesh mechanic
gets him in a panic
he's wasting time
'cause everybody is a star
in his eyes

You think this love is bona fide
You're being taken for a ride
Wrap your lip around your head
and slowly blow yourself away.


I Do
I wanna be much more like you
Your effortlessly graceful scene?
Kiss from every pore of you
Where logic cannot intervene
I wanna take a bath with you
And wash the chaos from my skin
I wanna fall in love with you
So how do we begin

I wanna be a girl like you
The way you swing your head some jean?
I wanna wear my face like you
A shale mask and maybeleen
I wanna pace the town with you
And tickle you until you scream
I wanna fall in love with you
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do

I wanna be much more like you
The way your smile lights up the room
I'll kick back as men flirt with you
To jealously I'll stay immune
This confidence in me and you
This hope that you and I will bloom
I wanna fall in love with you

I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do

The question is do you?


If Only Tonight We Could Sleep
(Placebo & The Cure Live at Zenith France 04.11.04 )

If only tonight we could sleep
In a bed made of flowers
If only tonight we could fall
In a deathless spell

If only tonight we could slide
Into deep black water
And breathe
And breathe...

Then an angel would come
With burning eyes like stars
And bury us deep
In his velvet arms

And the rain would cry
As our faces slipped away
And the rain would cry

Don't let it end...


Jesus Loves Me
Jesus loves me yes I know
Cos' the Bible tells me so
Little ones to him belong
They are weak but he is strong
Yes Jesus loves me
Yes Jesus loves me
Yes Jesus loves me
The Bible tells me so.


Lazarus
It's hard to see you again,
Now that you back from the dead,
It's hard to see you again,
So bored of beating you,
It's hard to see you again,
Now that you back from the dead,
It's hard to see you again,
So bored of...

[Chorus]
...beeing alive,
alive
alive

It's hard to see you again,
Acting like you're in some kind a cross,
It's hard to see you again,
An emotionally tart,
It's hard to see you again,
Unaware that all mean made me lost
It's hard to see you again,
So bored of...

[Chorus]
...beeing alive,
alive
alive
alive
alive
alive
alive

It's hard to see you again,
Walking around with that egg on your face,*
It's hard to see you again,
So full of empathy,
It's hard to see you again,
Caught in a trap like you, can not escape
It's hard to see you again,
So bored of...

[Chorus]
...beeing alive,
alive
alive
alive
alive
alive
alive Leni
I kneel before her, beneath this frozen sky
Beneath her shoulder, beneath her evil eye
She towers over this male who is a fly
My sci-fi lullaby

I kneel before her, beneath this frozen sky
I beg below her, my limbs are paralyzed
She beats me harder than any kind of guy
My sci-fi lullaby

Beside her
Astride her
I die inside her
Forever and ever
She's born to mesmor
Sacred
Dont break it
Dont ever
Go let me down

Cross my heart and hope to die
Cross my heart and hope to die
Cross my heart and hope to die
Beside her
Astride her
I die inside her
Forever and ever
She's born to mesmor
Sacred
Dont break it
Dont ever
Go let me down

Beside her
Astride her
I die inside her
Forever and ever
She's born to mesmor
Sacred
Dont break itDont ever
Go let me down

Cross my heart and hope to die
Cross my heart and hope to die

Little Mo
In our pain and sinning fall
Accept peace and whine
Going bad and taking all this
It's of each and tide
Calling bean and sinning call
Now I'm neat and tight
Gonna crap with naked elders
Sits there cheating high

Tonight, Jesus loves you
Tonight, Jesus loves you
Tonight, Jesus loves you
Tonight, Jesus loves you

We are dead and cynical
Gun of peace in my eye
See the back with naked elders
It's a cheating high
But she will back on mainframe
She got crack on cocain
She got crack on seeing
Cheater, cheater...

Tonight, Jesus loves you (x7)

Till our death and sinning call
Except she can hide
All those fat and sacred elders
Sister off and bad-eyed
She got back on ainframe
She got crack on cocain
She got crack on seeing
Cheater, cheater...

Tonight, Jesus loves you (x7)

Like Siamese
(Timo Maas feat. Brian molko)

Hang breathless on me
Hang breathless on me
The war will soon be over
So hang breathless on me

We'll walk slow through the empty
And we'll do as we please
We'll crawl body to body
Just like siamese
Like siamese

It's cold down by the water
And there's blood on the trees
We'll flow shoulder to shoulder
Just like siamese
Like siamese

Hang breathless on me
Hang breathless on me

The war will soon be over
So hang breathless on me

Like Siamese (repeat)

Mars Landing Party
Embrasse moi
Mets ton doigt dans mon cul
Une presence inconnue
Une presence inconnue
Jusqu'а ce que j'en peux plus

Miss Moneypenny
Penance for his sin, he locked it in for just a little while
Lubricating creams, sanitaries would only cramp his style
It's a dirty job but shooting guns just makes you horny
Wants to spill his seed on guaranteed, service with a smile.

Miss Moneypenny
Miss Moneypenny
Oh
Miss Moneypenny
Miss Moneypenny
Oh

Pitter patter of the eyelid on the first roll of the dice
Feel the atmosphere, it's gently laced with nicotine and spice
It's a long walk home, the entrance of the night is scary
Only trouble is, he never learned to shoot the same gun twice

Miss Moneypenny
Miss Moneypenny
Oh
Miss Moneypenny
Miss Moneypenny
Oh

Every job he saves the girl
Martini, mobile phone
Bastards getting in his way
They're all pushing daisies
All you need to make a movie is a gun and a girl

No Other God
I saw your mom the other day.
She says you're wrong in every way.
Her little words sick like the flu.
I see the things they do to you.

She better cut it out.
You better cut her out.
You better cut her off.
You'll have no other god before me.

I saw you with your friends last night,
shooting shit by Bud's early Light.
You've got so much life inside you.
but they drag you down 'til you can't move.

They better cut it out.
You better cut them out.
You better cut them off.
You'll have no other god before me.

All you need, all you need, all you need is me.
Lucky you, lucky you, lucky you.you found me.
Whadja do ? Whadja see ? Whadja feel before me ?
And my love is so, oh, oh, you'll wanna kill your friends.

I've seen you labour for your dreams.
Then, comatose when they're unseen.
And sometimes God is silent, too.
but God can't fill you like I do.

He better cut it out.
You better cut Him out.
You better cut Him off.
You'll have no other God before me.
You'll have no other God before me.
You'll have no other God before me.

Pink Water (Indochine avec Brian Molko)
Nicolas: je pars je ne reviendrai jamais
Bientoit le monde m'aura oublier
Tu sais
Que j'aime
Lalalala tu vois
Je recherche а revoir pour me cacher et pour me faire rire en paix
Ne j’ms le croire quand il t'en parlera si tu pouvais le revoir
Je partierai et je resterai
Tellement votu de toi
Et souvientoi encore quelque fois de moi et ne leur pardonne pas
Brian: Get me out of this place, get me out place, get me out of this place
N: Je pars je ne reviendrai jamais, des roses de l'eau rose tu vois
Ta vie dans un jardin, un jardin etrange mais retiens moi par la main
Et si demain tu me joind pas alors continu sans moi
Je partierai et je garderai que les reste de toi
Souvien toi encore quelque fois de moi et ne leur pardonne pas
B: Get me out of this place, get me out of this town before I drown in your deep pink water
Won’t remember your face, can’t remember your frown, because I drown in your deep pink water
B: 10...9...8...7....6...5...4...3...2...1...
N: Je pars je ne reviendrai jamais
Bientoit le monde m'aura oublier
Tu sais
Je partierai et je resterai seulement vкtu de toi souviens toi encore qq fois de moi mais ne leur pardonne pas
B :Get me out of this place, get me out of this town before I drown in your deep pink water
won't remember your face, can't remember your frown, because I drown in your deep pink water
B :Get me out of this place, get me out of this town before I drown in your deep pink water
won't remember your face, can't remember your frown, because I drown in your deep pink water

Protege Moi
C’est le malaise du moment
L'epidemie qui s’etend
La fete est finie on descend
Des pensees qui glacent la raison
Paupieres baissees, visages gris
Occupes au plus profond de leur lit
On le loge chez soi a vivre
Du taudis qu’on appelle maison

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me, protect me

Protege-moi protege-moi
Protege-moi protege-moi
Protege-moi de mes desirs
Protege-moi protege-moi

Sommes-nous les jouets du destin?
Souviens-toi des moments ignobles
Qu’on a tant eclates au matin
Et maintenant nous sommes tout seuls
Perdus les reves, les edens
Le temps ou on avait la cle
Il nous reste toute une vie pour pleurer
Dans l'attente nous sommes tout seuls

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me protect me
Protege-moi protege-moi de mes desirs
Protege-moi de mes desirs x2


Slackerbitch
It echoes in my brain
I didn't mean it
Pulses through my veins
I didn't mean it
I'm the one to blame
I didn't mean it
Did too much cocaine
I didn't mean it.

Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
Looks real cute, her lips are sore
Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
Always comes back for more

Your memory will fade
I didn't mean it
you've always had it made
I didn't mean it
I know you feel betrayed
I didn't mean it
I just wanted to get laid
I didn't mean it

Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
looks real cute, her lips are sore
Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
always knocking on my door

You come across impure
I didn't mean it
you're goddamn immature
I didn't mean it
You act so insecure
I didn't mean it
You hate me now I'm sure
I didn't mean it

Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
Looks real cute, her lips are sore
slackerbitch, faghag, whore
Dripping sex from every pore
Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
Looks real cute, her lips are sore
Slackerbitch, faghag, whore
Such a motherfucking bore

Smile
Don't stare at your face with your nose out of place
At the wrinkles where zits used to be
And remember that smiling uses less muscles
And frowning just makes you look ugly

So smile, smile
And the whole world will smile with you
So smile, baby, smile
If the whole world just had a clue

Don't mess with your man when hes selling you grams
He would kill you for less and then smile
And don't curse at a whore as you open the door
coz your service wont be with a smile

So smile, smile
And the whole world smiles with you
And smile, baby, smile
If the whole world just had a clue

Don't sneer at your doctor and gamble in proctor
Coz they're just pawns in the game
The perfect prescription is one that you're given
it's filled out in jesus' name
Don't be scared of your preacher coz hes just a leech
Hes too busy cruising your ass
Theres a verse in the bible that says we're all liable
For everything that comes to pass

So smile, smile
And the whole world smiles with you
So smile, baby, smile
If the whole world just had a clue
So smile, smile
Smile, smile
Smile, smile


Some
Some like to dream, some like to live
Some like to take, some like to give
Some take enough, some take it all
Some will rise, and some will fall
Some like it tight, some like it loose
Some need a reason, some need no excuse
Some like it dirty, some like it clean
Some like it tender, and some like it lean
Some fuck for fun, some for prestige
Some come on their feet (and)
Some come on their knees
Some say they're bent
Some say they're straight
Some come early
And some come late
I'm taking some
Now I'm taking some


Then the Clouds Will Open for Me
My guy has a tan transcontinental
But it keeps me enchained
Watch an old black and white movie
Fred and Ginger are too sentimental, crying in shame
I don't want to be forgotten
I can't be alone
So don't you dare leave me
it's like coming home
To a skin that has died
Human voices like a drum
and they're looking right through me
Scatter the ashes one more time for me, one more time for me
My guy has a tattoo ornamental
When he's frozen in space
Cut your eye far to me
a covered carcass is too elemental, caught underneath a subway
I don't want to be forgotten
I can't be alone
So don't you dare leave me
it's like coming home
It's a skin that has died
Human voices like a drum
and they're looking right through me
scatter the ashes one more time for me, one more time for me
One more time for me, one more time for me
one more time for me, one more time for me
one more time for me, one more time for me

Trans-likened, twisting my ankle
Doing the grave dance
Narcotic? yes please, I'll have a sample
Riding on my very last chance
Then the clouds will open for me
Gonna meet my Jesus Christ
I see history playing before me
For pleasure and passion you play the price
Sadness the name of the spike that took me
I'll make that's all
Like some raging, hard, horny mephistopheles
Who came for my soul


The Metric System
(Trash Palace feat.Brian Molko)

Rock boy
His genital sack juice mad
His delicious apparatus
Would flutter and tremble
After heated worship
He would freeze it in a jar
And sell it to celebrity lesbians

Good work if you can get it
Good work if you can get it

They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
You know they're down with the metric system
They never fuck around
They wanna buy it in kilos
They wanna buy it in grams
You know they're down with the metric system
They never buy the pound

Good work if you can get it

Trigger Happy

The world is run by clowns with trigger happy hands
But the world is filled with people that we don’t understand
So we’re living in a culture made of death and fear
Doesn’t seem the human race will make it through the year

The world is run by lying, drunk, balding, know it alls
But my mother told me pride would always come before a fall
Now remember in the day when we were young and green?
We were filled with hope; we were squeaky clean

"The world’s an unforgiving place", we've all heard this before
But we want hospitals and equal rights instead of fucking wars
We want the right to blow our minds, as crazy as it seems
The only place you’re truly free is cosy in your dreams
I said the only place you’re truly free is cosy in your dreams

So put your hands in the air, and wave them like you give a fuck
Put your hands in the air, and wave them like you give a fuck
Put your hands in the air, and wave them like you give a fuck

The world is run by clowns with trigger happy hands
But the world is filled with people that we don’t understand
So we’re living in a culture made of death and fear
Doesn’t seem the human race will make it through the year

Put your hands in the air, and wave them like you give a fuck
Put your hands in the air, and wave them like you give a fuck
Put your hands in the air, and wave them like you give a fuck
Put your hands in the air, and wave them like you give a fuck [repeat]

Waiting for the Son of Man
Patience comes to the ugly, not me
laughter comes to the lucky, not me
people in my head that won't stop talking
nothing in my dream that isn't creepy crawling

Walking in the park and I think that i'm falling
swimming in the sea and I think i'll
you guessed it
Only lifeguards
Only lifeguards
packing all the time...
can save me

Waiting
Waiting
Waiting
For the son of man
For the son of man...

Patience comes to the ugly, not me
concentration comes to the ugly, not me
Nothing on the box that hasn't been born
No-one in the street that isn't old

Driving in the car and I think that i'm crashing
Swimming in the Sea and I think that i'll
you guessed it
Only lifeguards
Only lifeguards
packing all the time
can save me

Waiting
Waiting
