My baby messes me around Yeah she don’t love me anymore And I know that for sure. She put her hands in the air Then the air turned sour We stood like that for an hour. x2 When my baby makes me grilled cheese She puts raw onion on it But she knows I don’t want it. So I pick them off And then she’s mad at me She tells me I’m a control freak. Baby I still go for gold I still go for gold. Baby I still go for gold I still go for gold. I drink your kerosene But I don’t like it when your mean. Oh oh oh ooh. I borrow your light Set fire to my mind. Oh oh oh ooh.

Let’s talk it out cause I can’t do without you I wish that we could feel better. x2 My baby messes me around Yeah she don’t love me anymore And I know that for sure.

Landslide 02:52
I walk these streets like a trip to the beach Can’t afford a slip of the teeth, take a bite outta me my blood runs blue is it true that you talk about me when you’re asleep keep having dreams that I’m being seen. She says hello but I don’t know who she is I say hi back and I don’t think that she notices I’ve got a bad brain for staying and focusing Taking in, information maybe I stop listening. Drop head avoid your eyes When I’m feeling better I can’t understand why it won’t last forever. Caught up in a landslide standing in the rain like there’s no other weather. Drip drop on my window pain You talk like I’m insane Skyward to the gutter I don’t think you notice But it doesn’t matter. You took a trip down a two take track It took so long that I thought that you’d never come back Grand theft auto caught you hanging around out back Smoking tabs on the slack Heart on the slab, dark contrast, your drawback. You shower cold to protect your mind I take you home to protect your sight You got a soft shell and a hard fight hard try, try fly in a straight line but you keep on ending at the start line. Drop head avoid your eyes When I’m feeling better I can’t understand why it won’t last forever. Caught up in a landslide standing in the rain like there’s no other weather. Drip drop on my window pain You talk like I’m insane Skyward to the gutter I don’t think you notice But it doesn’t matter.

Sick of the sound of the same shit rolling around in my brain Seems I’ve been dreaming up this Rubik’s cube it’s driving me insane Cross the city on my bike try to catch a tan Summer up north’s like a frying pan. So go easy on yourself. Go easy on yourself. Woke up coked up hoping no-one would remember my name Holed up in your living room to escape my brain Titanium appetite have a bite of your flame Seems the less I have the less I crave. So go easy on yourself. Go easy on yourself. Don’t you take me down this road You’ve been howling with your ghosts Don’t you take me down this road You’ve been howling with your ghosts. White walls, pot plants, television romance Make the same joke, laughs, chokes, hold hands Walks in the park at dark stark contrast Stars only come out at night cause you’re nervous So go easy on yourself. Go easy on yourself.

Headlock 03:40
She got you in a headlock You don’t want it an it’s ticking you off Picking up on late night takeaway talks Clutching at the straws but you’re coming up short. It’s 1984 you got binoculars you don’t know what for Dreaming you got freedom but you pay to be watched Laughing at your brother but he comes out on top I’m so exposed To artificial green light glows Keep me up all night dreams like oh I’m so exposed To artificial green light glows Keep me up all night dream like scream like oh She got you in a headlock You don’t get it and it’s making you cross Deafened by her charms alarms going off Picking at your heart but it’s all scabbed up. They’re knocking at your door You’ve got a telescope you don’t know what for Drip-fed information down a television cord I got sky plus but I still get bored. I’m so exposed To artificial green light glows Keep me up all night dreams like oh I’m so exposed To artificial green light glows Keep me up all night dream like scream like oh She got you in a headlock Pull you underwater to the bedrock Holding on to your luck like a shamrock But now she’s come to tell you that it’s bad luck And all you ever wanted was some hard love Only in it for the winning but it’s hard work How come all we ever seem to do is hard work Have we got enough water for the whole flood Nah, I can’t get on top of this Seems everything keeps moving out from under my feet Nah, I can’t get on top of this Instead of moving forward I keep missing a beat like.. Nah, I can’t get on top of this Seems everything keeps moving out from under my feet Nah, I can’t get on top of this Instead of moving forward I keep missing a beat like.. I’m so, exposed, to artificial green light screen light glows I’m so exposed To artificial green light glows Keep me up all night dreams like oh I’m so exposed To artificial green light glows Keep me up all night dream like scream like oh

Before I Go 02:56
I tie up my hair to keep it off my face Practice how to breath my lungs feel out of place I know you can see me I’m on top of this I put on my dress, man I’m killing it I know I’ll be seeing you but I don’t wanna leave The sun comes up and it’s not alone Close the curtains I’m not going home One more cigarette before the road We sneak our own drink into the same bars We love being loved but we try too hard They don’t give a shit about us I hate the fade man I love the buzz I know I’ll be seeing you but I don’t wanna leave The sun comes up and it’s not alone Close the curtains I’m not going home One more cigarette before the road Don’t wanna wake up in my own bed na na Don’t wanna wake up on my own Don’t wanna wake up in my own bed na na Don’t wanna wake up on my own The sun comes up and it’s not alone (don’t wanna wake up in my own bed na na) Close the curtain I’m not going home (don’t wanna wake up in my own bed na na) The sun comes up and it’s not alone (don’t wanna wake up in my own bed na na) One more cigarette before the road Don’t wanna wake up in my own bed na na Don’t wanna wake up on my own
