DOMESTIC SCENE Domestic scene What’s missing here Leaving just in time Social climbers at the frontier But I refuse that climb I’m leaving just in time I’m leaving just in time Leaving just in time Domestic scene Do I belong Seemed like a good idea at one time But now it’s all wrong Already declined I’m leaving just in time I’m leaving just in time Leaving just in time Leaving just in time I’m leaving just in time I’m leaving just in time Leaving just in time

HEAVEN’S ON FIRE When I look at you Heaven’s on fire I wish I didn’t know you better But it’s pointless One look at you And heaven’s on fire When I look at you I reach for a piano wire Fighting to keep it together But it’s pointless One look at you And heaven’s on fire Heaven’s on fire It seems like everyone is on your side We’re outnumbered by those who take no pride In constantly moving against the tide Charlatans just out of reach And out of time I’m a lot like you Ugly on the inside But while I dive into the gritty You just stand by One look at you And heaven’s on fire Heaven’s on fire It seems like everyone is on your side We’re outnumbered by those who take no pride In constantly moving against the tide Charlatans out of reach And out of time Charlatans just out of reach And out of time

THIS TIME AROUND You’re young like tonight And to be young is to be right You never had to prove your loyalty But you want to know When I am off my hunger strike You were always treated like royalty You say it’s not a song That will prove them wrong This time around You feel old like the fight Learning new ways to be right And how to cope with disloyalty It’s not a song That will prove them wrong This time around All the things we hoped for They’re gone They’ve sailed across the sea And all the things we tried for They’re gone They’re gone This time around You’re young like tonight And to be young is to be right You never had to prove your loyalty But we dreamt of a war On that night And in that car We made a promise Do you recall? It’s not a song That will prove them wrong This time around All the things we hoped for They’re gone They’ve sailed across the sea And all the things we tried for They’re gone They’re gone This time around This time around This time around This time around

NEVER FOLLOW SUIT I want to You knew that I would want to It makes me feel bad But I’ve been waiting for a long A long time I want to Yes I wanted to Long before you I want to, now I’ve been waiting for a long, long time I want to I always wanted to belong to The freak scene Or anyone who set their mind to Never follow suit again Because they have to I want to, now I always wanted to belong Belong to You want to You said you didn’t want to It makes me feel bad But I could never bring you You want to You wanted to But never dared too You want to, now But I’ve been waiting for a long A long, long time We’ll never follow suit We’ll never follow suit We’ll always stay off route

A TOKEN OF GRATITUDE Please except this As a token Of my sincere gratitude I’m not joking There’s the singing The provoking And all the promises made That were broken Do I love you? Yes I love you But easy come, easy go Don’t let me down

THE VIDEO DEPT. I have kept your diary on tape I’ve covered every angle of your face From ear to ear And then you’d smile And disappear for a while Take me when you go out again I want to buy some stuff from your friend It’s good to know we both still care And that we have this to share

Memory Loss 04:16
MEMORY LOSS It’s a trap Someone’s waiting in the tall grass It’s a trap And no one around for miles But you’re all smiles This disease I find everything pursuing I forget that I hate so many things Like techno clubs I prefer the queuing If I curse If I should accuse you Please tell me that I’m wrong If I’m worse I’m just scared to lose you I’ve wanted this too long Can you please Tell me what I’m doing I don’t know Swear I haven’t got a clue It’s all new If I curse If I should accuse you Please tell me that I’m wrong If I’m worse I’m just scared to lose you I’ve wanted this too long

David 03:31
DAVID Asleep for twenty years With this feeling But I was on your side And he spent some twenty years With this feeling Of being lost inside He was lost inside of his mind Just like we’ve been On and off For all our lives All our lives Oh David won’t you look into my... He turned to many heads For one lifetime He never had to try And he stained too many beds For one lifetime But always asking why Always asking why Why Just like I’ve been doing up until tonight Why Just like I’ve been doing David All my life All my life Oh David won’t you look into my... Oh David won’t you look into my eyes Oh David won’t you look into my eyes Oh David won’t you look into my eyes

YOU STOPPED MAKING SENSE You stopped making sense You stopped making sense You forgot about your friends I want to come closer I want to come closer I want to come closer That’s all I want Since you let god in You believe in sin But of course there’s no such thing Just like there’s no santa No equality before the law No people without flaws You forgot all about us And for what cause? You believe the lie Saying you won’t die I know you’re scared But so am I That’s why I can’t lose you Whatever they told you I’m dying to hold you Don’t let them blindfold you Don’t say goodbye
