The truth be told, the truth be told
I'm worried about the future holds, the future holds
I'm starting to worry about Ray

The truth be told, the truth be told
I'm worried about the future holds, the future holds
I'm seriously worried about Ray

They say the future's out to get you
You know that I won't let you fall
They say the future's out to get you
You know that I won't let you fall

The truth be told, the truth be told
I'm treading on my tippy toes, my tippy toes
I'm starting to worry about Ray

The truth be told, the truth be told
I'm treading on my tippy toes, my tippy toes
I'm painfully so worried about Ray

They say the future's out to get you
You know that I won't let you fall
They say the future's out to get you
You know that I won't let you fall
No!

They say the future's out to get you
You know that I won't let you fall
They say the future's out to get you
You know that I won't let you fall

The future's out to get you, the future's out to get you, oh
The future's out to get you, the future's out to get you, oh

The truth be told, the truth be told
I'm worried what the future holds, the future holds
I'm so tired of being worried about Ray

You got out the wrong side of bed and liked it
the only love you get is unriquited
morning monday, all week longs not healthy
but being healthy's only for the wealthy

you cant see the worst case scenario
you be happier at this stage if uld stayed in bed
i pray one day il live to see you break a smile

wollow in your miserable mess as you tend to
you most stood looking unimpressed do i offend you
morning monday, all week longs not healthy
but being healthy's only for the wealthy

you cant see the worst case scenario
you be happier at this stage if uld stayed in bed
i pray one day il live to see you break a smile

i pray one day il live to see you break a smile
i pray one day il live to see you break a smile
i pray one day il live to see you break a smile

you cant see the worst case scenario
you be happier at this stage if uld stayed in bed
you cant see the worst case scenario
you be happier at this stage if uld stayed in bed

i pray one day il live to see you break a smile
i pray one day il live to see you break a smile
i pray one day il live to see you break a smile
i pray one day il live to see you break a smile

I saw a fox by the rabbit hole
You saw a prince from a fairy tale
He promised that he’d watch over you
Turned out to be the fox we all knew

If i've got to be true, what chance did you stand.
Tall guy, tall tailed, get out while you can.

Run rabbit run, as fast as you can. Don’t look back.
Run rabbit run, as fast as you can. Don’t look back.

He’d dance to your beat, and steal your heart
And smile with those teeth and tear you apart.

High on those heels, dance like a brook??
The way you survive, till there’s nothing left

Run rabbit run, as fast as you can. Don’t look back.
Run rabbit run, as fast as you can. Don’t look back.

Ahhh

Run rabbit run, as fast as you can. Don’t look back.
Don’t look back. Don’t look back. Don’t look back.
Don’t look back. Don’t look back.

Run rabbit run, as fast as you can. Don’t look back.
Run rabbit run, as fast as you can. Don’t look back.
Run rabbit run, as fast as you can. Don’t look back.
Don’t look back. Don’t look back. Don’t look back.
Don’t look back. Don’t look back. Don’t look back.
Don’t look back. Don’t look back. Don’t look back.
Don’t look, Don’t Look, Don’t look back.

Oooooh

. . .


There’s a hole in your logic,
You who know all the answers, (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
You claim science ain’t magic, (Oo-oo-oo-oo)
And expect me to buy it

Goodbye Mr. A,
You promised you would love us, but you knew too much,
Goodbye Mr. A,
You had all the answers but no human touch,
Your life is subtraction,
Your number is up,
Your love is a fraction,
It’s not any more

So busy showing me where I’m wrong,
You forgot to switch your feelings on, (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
So, so superior, are you not,
You love a little bit but you forgot

Goodbye Mr. A,
You promised you would love us, but you knew too much,
Goodbye Mr. A,
You had all the answers but no human touch,
Your life is subtraction,
Your number is up,
Your love is a fraction,
It’s not any more

Goodbye Mr. A

Goodbye Mr. A,
The world was full of fun until you opened my eyes,
Goodbye Mr. A,
Wish you hadn’t pulled my mind and killed the surprise,
Goodbye Mr. A,
You promised you would love us, but you knew too much,
Goodbye Mr. A
You had all the answers but no human touch.

Your life is subtraction,
Your number is up,
Your love is a fraction,
It’s not any more

If we catch a criminal
When we catch a criminal
There's nothing we can do
But play cops and robbers
Cops and robbers

We're at a revolution
And we're baying for your blood
We're laying down the law
And your name's mud

You'd like to be a member of the human race
You want to be a good boy
But you couldn't stand the taste

Blame Simon
Because he said
You've got two lives down
And one life left
Blame Simon
Because he said
You could think better with a hole in your head
You could think better with a hole in your head

If we catch a criminal
When we catch a criminal
There's nothing we can do
But play cops and robbers
Cops and robbers
If we catch a criminal
When we catch a criminal
There's nothing we can do
But play cops and robbers
Cops and robbers

Catch a revolution
Now your waging war again
Marching on the spot when you should have made amends
Cause you say you fight for us
Cross your heart and hope to die
You're the bully in the playground and we'll hang you out to dry

Blame Simon
Because he said
You've got two lives down
And one life left
Blame Simon
Because he said
You could think better with a hole in your head
You could think better with a hole in your head

If we catch a criminal
When we catch a criminal
There's nothing we can do
But play cops and robbers
Cops and robbers
If we catch a criminal
When we catch a criminal
There's nothing we can do
But play cops and robbers
Cops and robbers
If we catch a criminal

Line them up against a wall and shoot them all
Oh oh oh

If we catch a criminal
When we catch a criminal
There's nothing we can do
Play cops and robbers
Cops and robbers
If we catch a criminal
When we catch a criminal
There's nothing we can do
Play cops and robbers

If we catch a criminal
There's nothing you or I can do

Line them up against a wall I'll get a gun and shoot them all

People are puppets, held together with string.
There's a beautiful sadness that runs through him, as he asked me to pray to the god he doesn't believe in.

Time and again boys are raised to be men: impatient they start, fearful at end.
But here was a man mourning tomorrow.
He drank, but finally drown in his sorrow.

He could not brace up his tension.
He looked in the wrong place for redemption.
Don't look at me with those eyes; i tried to unheave the ties: turn back the time that drew him.
But he couldn't be saved: a sadness runs through him, through him.

Time and again boys are raised to be men: impatient they start, fearful at end.
But here was a man mourning tomorrow, who drank, but finally drown in his sorrow

He could not brace up his tension.
He looked in the wrong place for redemption.
Don't look at me with those eyes; i tried to unheave the ties; turn back the time that drew him.
But he couldn't be saved: a sadness runs through him, through him.

Don't look...Don't look...Don't...Don't
Don't look at me with those eyes; i tried to unheave the ties: turn back the time that drew him.
But he couldn't be saved, no, he couldn't be saved: sadness runs through him, sadness runs through him, sadness runs through him, sadness runs through him, sadness runs through him

I need you to reach me
Teach me how to love
I need you to reach me
Teach me how to love

'Cos I must have got it wrong
If I had love then it's gone
I've been living without it for oh so long
And that's the way it goes
I suppose

Made enough mistakes
Between two of us to sing this thing
We're still clinging on for life
Made enough mistakes
Between two of us to sing this thing
We're still clinging on for life

I need you to reach me
Teach me how to love
I need you to reach me
Teach me how to love

Must have got it wrong
If I had love then it's gone
I've been living without it for oh so long
And that's the way it goes
I suppose

Made enough mistakes
Between two of us to sing this thing
We're still clinging on for life
Made enough mistakes
Between the two of us to sing this thing
We're still clinging on for life

And I must have got it wrong
If I had love then it's gone
I've been living without it for oh so long
And that's the way it goes
When your head but can suppose
And instead of answers
It's full of 'I don't know's
And that's the way it goes
I suppose

. . .


Hypnotised by mirrors,
You should look out your window,
Beneath cracked panes of ice,
A sky's on fire.
Drowned by the screams of decadence,
Are two arms (?)

Too busy working out to,
Work it out.

It's not gonna matter what you chose,
It's too late when everything goes,

Da-ya-ya-yark (x2)

It's come for all that you hola dear,
She starts to cry,
And hears a song to break your heart,
Looking in the dark,
But I can't see,
It's getting light,
In the night we made mistakes;

Da-ya-ya-yark (x4)

Would you leave yourself alone?
If everything goes dark,
Would you light it up your soul? (?)
Once everything goes dark,
Everything goes dark,
Everything goes dark,

Da-ya-ya-yark (x3)
Da-ya-ha-ha (x6)

(Humming)

Everything goes dark (x3)

. . .


I hate my work, but I'm in control
I'm fearless now, but it cost my soul
Save yourselves, the moon is full
Under its power, gravitational pull

Blood red lips, they shake like leaves
You're flesh and blood, but what's underneath?

Don't turn out the lights
Kiss yourself goodnight cause there's a killer
And he's coming after you
Kiss yourself goodnight, tonight
Cause there's a killer and he's coming after you

It's alright to scream
I'm screaming too,
Why'd you think I do these things I do?
For shadows haunted me like ghosts,
So I became what I feared the most

I conduct fear like electricity
A man made monstrosity

Don't turn out the lights
Kiss yourself goodnight cause there's a killer
And he's coming after you
Kiss yourself goodnight, tonight
Cause there's a killer and he's coming after you

Oh oh, oh oh

Don't turn out the lights
Kiss yourself goodnight cause there's a killer
And he's coming after you
Kiss yourself goodnight, tonight
Cause there's a killer and he's coming after you

Don't turn out the lights, kiss yourself goodnight
Cause theres a killer and he's coming after you
Don't turn out the lights, tonight cause there's a killer..

Oh oh, oh oh

. . .


Everything you love turns to dust,
You'd make more of it but you felt rushed,
By all that's periphary,
You held tight, but on the contrary,

The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,
The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,

You'd kill for answers but learn to live with,
Questions, Who what why how and if,
I'll sit back detached tear our your hair,
Oh but on the contrary...

The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,
The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,

Everyone you love turns to dust,
You'd jump off the edge but you felt pushed,
By all that's unnecessary,
You tread but you're off on the wrong foot,

The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,
The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,
The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,

Don't get attached to, attached to life,
Don't get attached to, attached to life,

The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,
The trick to life is not to get too attached to it,

Don't look your life passed you by,
Cos you're too attached to it,
Don't look your life passed you by,
Cos you're too attached to it

. . .


Put up your barricades
There's money to be made
Continue your charade
Money to be made

What you're asking for means the world to me
You draw close as you whisper precisely
Precisely

Your safety is assured,
Behind those eggshell walls
Of yours
You're safety is assured,
Behind those eggshell walls
Of yours

Friends and family fly by on wings of faith
Faithlessly I don't recognise a face
Not a single face

Take this sorry soul
Made enough of a mess on my own
On my own

Put up your barricades
There's money to be made

. . .


You sent the sun round the earth
Made me feel twice what I'm worth...
