Sleeping With Ghosts - 2003

English Summer Rain
Always stays the same
Nothing ever changes
English summer rain
Seems to last for ages
Always stays the same
Nothing ever changes
English summer rain
Seems to last for ages
I'm in the basement
You're in the sky
I'm in the basement baby
Drop on by
I'm in the basement
You're in the sky
I'm in the basement baby
Drop on by

Hold your breath and count to ten
And fall apart and start again
Hold your breath and count to ten
Start again start again
Hold your breath and count to ten
And fall apart and start again
Start again

*at the end of single version*

I can't sleep without your breathing
And I can't breathe each time you're leaving
And I'll pray you won't stay away
And you come back to me some day

*at the end of live version*

Once I thought I saw you in a crowded hazy bar,
Dancing on the light from star to star.
Far across the moonbeam I know that's who you are,
I saw your brown eyes turning once to fire.

You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but I'm getting blown away.

This Picture
I hold an image of the ashtray girl
Left cigarette burns on my chest
I wrote a poem that described our world
And put our friendship to the test
And late at night while I was on all fours
She used to watch me kiss the floor
What's wrong with this picture?
What's wrong with this picture?

Farewell the ashtray girl
Forbidden snowflake
Beware this troubled world
And watch out for earthquakes
Goodbye to open sores
To broken semaphore
You know we miss her
We miss her picture

Sometimes it's faded
Disentigrated
The fear of growin old
Sometimes it's faded
Assassinated
The fear of growin old

Farewell the ashtray girl
Angelic fruitcake
Beware this troubled world
Control your intake
Goodbye to open sores
Goodbye and furthermore
You know we miss her
We miss her picture

Sometimes it's faded
Disentigrated
The fear of growin old
Sometimes it's faded
Assassinated
The fear of growin old

We hang on
Though we try
It's gone

Sometimes it's faded
Disentigrated
The fear of growin old
Sometimes it's faded
Assassinated
The fear of growin old

You can't stop growin old
You can't stop growin old
You can't stop growin old
You can't stop growin old

Soulmates
The sea's evaporating
Though it comes as no suprise
These clouds we're seein
They're explosions in the sky
It seems it's written
But we can't read between the lines

Hush
It's ok
Dry your eye
Dry your eye
Soulmate dry your eye
Dry your eye
Soulmate dry your eye
Cause soulmates never die

This one world vision
Turns it's hand to compromise
What good's religion
When it's each other we despise
Damn the government
Damn their killin'
Damn their lies

Hush
It's ok
Dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Soulmate dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Soulmate dry your eyes
Cause soulmates never die
Soulmates never die
Never die
Soulmates never die
Never die

Soulmates never die
Soulmates never die
Soulmates never die
Soulmates never die

The Bitter End
Since we're feeling so anesthetised
In our comfort zone
Reminds me of the second time
That I followed you home
We're running out of allibies
From the second of May
Reminds me of the summer time
On this winter's day

See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end

Every step we take that's synchronised
Every broken bone
Reminds me of the second time
That I followed you home
You shower me with lullabies
As you're walking away
Reminds me that it's killing time
On this fateful day

See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end

From the time we intercepted
Feels alot like suicide
Slow and sad, going sadder
Arise a sitting mine

(See you at the bitter end)

I love to see you run around
And i can see you now
Running to me
Arms wide out

(See you at the bitter end)

Reach inside
Come on just gotta reach inside
Heard your cry
Six months time
Six months time
Prepare the end

Something Rotten
Down here
It seems we're here
I miss you something rotten
The stinks are here
It's guaranteed all is forgotten

Down here
Down here
It's clear that your uncut
Don't fear, don't fear
Keep all this forgotten

Face down, face down
Face down
I miss you something rotten
Face down, face down
This crown is broken rotten

Down here, down here
I know it's not, it's all forgotten
Down here, down here
Face down
I miss you something rotten

Down here, down here
It stinks
It stinks of something rotten
Don't fear, don't fear
Keep all this forgotten

There's something rotten down here
There's something rotten down here
There's something rotten down here
There's something rotten down here

There's something rotten down here
There's something rotten down here
There's something rotten down here
There's something rotten down here

Plasticine
Beauty lies inside the eye
Of another youthful dream
That doesn't sell it's soul for self-esteem
That's not plasticine

Beauty lies inside desire
And every wayward heart redeemed
That doesn't sell it's soul for self-esteem
That's not plasticine

Don't forget to be the way you are
Don't forget to be the way you are
Don't forget to be the way you are
Don't forget to be the way you are

The only thing you can rely on
Is that you can't rely on anything
Don't go and sell your soul for self-esteem
Don't be plasticine

Don't forget to be the way you are
Don't forget to be the way you are
Don't forget to be the way you are
Don't forget to be the way you are

Special Needs
Remember me when you're the one who's silver screened
Remember me when you're the one you'd always dreamed
Remember me whenever noses start to bleed
Remember me special needs

Just nineteen a sucker's dream
I guess I thought you had the flavor
Just nineteen a dream it seemed
Six months off for bad behavior

Remember me when you clinch your movie deal
And think of me stuck in my chair that has four wheels
Remember me through flash photography and screens
Remember me special dreams

Just nineteen a sucker's dream
I guess I thought you had the flavor
Just nineteen a dream it seemed
Six months off for bad behavior

Just nineteen a sucker's dream
I guess I thought you had the flavor
Just nineteen a dream it seemed
Six months off for bad behavior

Remember me
Remember me

I'll Be Yours
I'll be your water
Bathing you clean
Your liquid peace
I'll be your ether
You'll breathe me in
It won't release
Well I've you suffer
I've seen you cry
A whole life through
I'll be your water
Bathing you clean
Your liquid blue

I'll be your father
I'll be your mother
I'll be your lover
I'll be yours

I'll be your liquior
Bathing your soul
Juice that's pure
I'll be your anchor
You'll never leave
These shores that cure
Well I've seen you suffer
I've seen you cry
For days and days
So I'll be your liquior
Demons will drown
And float away

I'll be your father
I'll be your mother
I'll be your lover
I'll be yours

Second Sight
Walk away to save your face
You never were a genius
Walk away to save your face
You let it come between us
Walk away to save your face
You never were a genius
Walk away to save your face
You never were you never were

Yes it's just the second night
That I would break that guise for you
Yes I know you're the jealous type
Cause I'm cursed with second sight so

Walk away to save your face
You never were an actor
Walk away to save your face
Here comes the morning after
Walk away to save your face
You never were an actor
Walk away to save your face
You never were you never were

Yes it's just the second night
That I would break that guise for you
Yes I know you're the jealous type
Cause I'm cursed with second sight so

Walk away
You never were
Walk away
You never were
Walk away
You never were
Walk away
You never

Protect Me From What I Want
It's the disease of the age
It's the disease that we crave
Alone at the end of the rave
We catch the last bus home
Corporate America waits
Coffee republic and cakes
We open the latch on the gate
Of the hole that we call a home

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

Maybe we're victim to fate
Remember when we'd celebrate
We'd drink and get high until late
And now we're all alone
Wedding bells ain't gonna chime
With both of us guilty of crime
And both of us sentenced to time
And now we're all alone

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

Centrefolds
Come on Balthazar
I refuse to let you die
Come of fallen star
I refuse to let you die
Cause it's wrong
And I've been waitin far too long
And it's wrong
I've been waitin far too long
For you to be
Be
Be
Be

>Be mine
For you to be mine
Be mine
For you to be mine

And it's wrong
I've been waitin far too long
It's wrong
I've been waitin far too long
For you to be
Be
Be
Be

All the centrefolds
That you can't afford
Have long since waved their last goodbyes
All the centrefolds
That you can't afford
You've long since faded from their eyes
So be
Be mine
So be
Be mine
