Lyrics


1. Gone

So your anger didn't carry you too far
What'd you expect anyway?
There's no patience left, your shattered little self
You haven't got a fucking thing to say

High on your own
Gone motherfucker
Fucking stoned, yeah

Rain on your back, the wind in your face
You're spinnin 'round, going nowhere
Sweet dreams of her, she left you alone
You wasted it this time, my friend

High on your own, yeah
Gone motherfucker
Fucking stoned, yeah

My friends and I used to mess about in the park
We were only 14, yeah
I later understood about my attitude
I never thought I'd get that gone

High on your own, yeah
Gone motherfucker
Fucking stoned, whoa

High, high
Stoned, yeah

Come on nasty person
On your own, yeah




2. Coming Down (Drug Tongue)

You dirty hippie girl
Your soft lips make me swirl
I despise all of your lies
I'm not the prodigal son
I'm not the chosen one
I'm just a man of good intention

Hey-hey-hey
Come on home
Hey-hey-hey

Your horses terrify me
I can't work out why
The things you say are not ok
I'm not the prodigal son
I'm not the chosen one
Why can't you decide
When you chastise me?
Whoa

I'm coming down
Coming down
You baptise me
I don't wanna drown
Yeah, your drug tongue spoken

I'm coming down
I'm coming down
You baptise me
I don't wanna drown
Yeah, your drug tongue spoken loud

Your dying flowers stink
They smell like rotten ink
From a poison pen
So I wrote on your head
Well, just how deep you'll go
From whence you came, and don't you know?
Whoa, innocence
Your winter's so harsh in your heart

I'm coming down
Coming down
You baptise me
I don't wanna drown
Yeah, your drug tongue spoken loud

I'm coming down
Yeah-hey...
You baptise me
I don't wanna drown
Yeah, your drug tongue spoken loud

Pushin' me harder
Pushin' me harder
Pushin' me harder
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm coming down
I'm coming, coming down
You baptise me, oh yeah
I don't wanna drown
Yeah, your drug tongue spoken loud

I'm coming down, whoa yeah
Coming down
You baptise me, yeah
I don't wanna drown
Yeah, your drug tongue spoken loud

I'm coming down
I don't wanna drown
Yeah, your drug tongue spoken loud

I'm coming down
I don't wanna drown
Yeah, your drug tongue spoken loud

I'm coming down
I don't wanna drown
Yeah, his drug tongue spoken loud

I'm coming down
I don't wanna drown
Yeah, your drug tongue spoken loud

I'm coming down
Well, I'm still mad
Yeah, your drug tongue spoken true




3. Real Grrrl

Free baby
Free baby
Free baby

I shaved my head
Yeah, wiped the sheet clean
Hangman has packed up
I continue to dream

My words are broken
It's not easy to chew
So much unknown
So much is knowing, too

Lost
I'm lost in your shadow
Lost, oh yeah-yeah

I explode in your belly
My skull in your hands
You drive me like honey
Across sour taste glands
Free baby
Free again baby
Yeah, semen is pure
It's divine on your vine

Lost
I'm lost in your shadow
And I'm lost, yeah
I'm lost in your shadow

Yeah real girl, you cut through my blues
Yeah real girl, well you're golden to your shoes

Let's swim together
Hypnotize each other

Yeah real girl, you cut through my blues
Real girl, well you're golden to your shoes
Real girl, yeah
Femme fatal with fur

I explode in your belly
My skull in your hands
Drive me like sugar
Across sour taste glands

I shaved my head
Yeah, wiped the sheet clean
Hangman is packed up
I continued every day

Lost, oh yeah-yeah
Lost in your shadow
Lost, oh yeah-yeah
I'm lost in your shadow

I'm lost in your shadow
Lost
Lost
Lost
I'm lost in your shadow

I am lost
I am lost

4. Black Sun

Don't you hit that defenseless child
What gives you that empty right?
Carry that for the rest of your life
Carry that for the rest of time

Did they hold you down?
Oh yeah
Did they push you around?
Oh yeah-yeah

Burning in the black sun
Like a jackle on the run, well
Burning in the black sun

Burning up in the black sun, whoa yeah
Rotten apples every one, ay
Look at them

Guilty now for what they have done

Did they hold you down?
Whoa yeah-yeah

Burning in the black sun
Like a dog on the run
Burning in the black sun
Well, the time has finally come, whoa yeah
Black sun
It's like a jackel on the run, whoa yeah
Burning in the black, the black sun

Caught their vein, you've gone insane
You've lost your mind, you're not my kind
I hate your soul, you kill my fun
You did no good, you better run

Gonna get you down, gonna put you down
Gonna stick you in the ground
Gonna stick you in the ground
Gonna make you
Oh, gonna make you, whoa

Burning in the black sun, black sun
Burning in the black sun, black sun, black sun

Don't you hit that defenseless child

Burning in the black sun

Black, black sun
Black, black, black, black sun

Yeah, you were a bully
The universal bullies
Ha ha ha
Who's laughing at you now?

You are lost in your own mind
Yes you are you're declining in

Oh yeah-yeah, black sun

Burning in the black sun, black sun, black sun, whoo

5. Naturally High

You're a righteous child, got a tear tattooed on your face
Yeah, sometimes you drink too much, well hey, that's ok
Don't you know the truth is killing you?
Ain't it strange all the things in your life
Hey, that you're going through?

Some of my friends, they died real young
(Oh, yes they did)...
They never got to fly to the heart of the sun, no they didn't
There's one thing in my life that I love
Naturally high
Naturally high
Naturally high
In the kingdom of your love

A little bit of grease on my halo
Like some holy dharma bum, hey
I'm drunk on, I'm drunk on truth, and truth, and truth
This time it's not for fun, it's for real

Some of my friends, they died real young
(Yes they did)...
They never got to fly as high as the sun
(No they didn't)...
There's one thing in my life that I love
Naturally high
Naturally high
Naturally high
In the kingdom of your love




6. Joy

Yeah, I poisoned myself but I survived the thrill of life
I altered my state of mind so I could fly, mmm
Yeah, travelled beyond my pedestrian ties
My innocence, yeah, and those sweet lies
I rode in that car as far as it would take me, take me

I don't need no gun
I walk into the sun
Find what's going on
Find what's going down
I don't need no gun
I walk into your fun
Fun into the sun
Find what's going on

Your velvet tear rolled down my back
Your arms wrapped tight around me
I felt so good knowing that you could let go with me, yeah

I don't need no gun
I walk into your sun
Find what's going on
Find what's going down
I don't need no gun
I walk into your fun
I don't need the sun
To find what's going on
Crazy hippie girl
Soft lips make me swirl
More than I can feel
Mystery to me
Yeah-hey-yeah

Joy d'vivre, yeah

Mysterious life, what do you hold for us in your cloak?
I begin to shake, your horses, they are frightening me, well

I don't need no gun
I walk into your sun
Find what's going on
Find what's going down
I don't need no gun
I walk into your fun
I don't need the sun
To find what's going on
Crazy hippie girl
Soft lips make me swirl
More than I can feel
A mystery to me
Had my child son
I'm a young king now
Hey mysterious life
Holy criticised
Yeah-hey-yeah
Yeah-hey-yeah

Joy d'vivre...

11. Emperor's New Horse

Emperor's new horse
Take five

You're the Emperor's new horse
You don't smell like a rose
So you take more drugs than me
Specialize in being unhappy
Like a moth into the flame
Yeah, I've been burnt before
Lets rub his ashes on my skin
And someday we will win, whoo

In this time
There are those who rob us blind, well
In this time
They sing through, sing through golden teeth
Bring on the new

I'm guilty, too
Someday, maybe I'll learn
What's your fucking name?
Don't look too concerned
Don't abondon truth, wow

In this time
There are those who rob us blind, whoo
In this time
They sing through, they sing through golden teeth
Bring on the new

Being angry is your game
Overdosing's part of fame
So you read all this french symbolist poetry
You don't even get it on the fucking BBC
I don't really care no more
Boring out the door
I don't know what's true
It don't affect you
That's right damn lies above

In this time
There are those who rob us blind
Bring on the new
In this time
They sing through, sing through golden teeth
Bring on the new meat
Bring on the new meat
Bring on the new meat
Bring on the new meat

Bring it on, baby
Bring, bring, bring on the new meat, baby

Oh, the saints are down

Girl, you should know that I love you more than I can say
Sometimes I fear all those things that come down on us anyway

But I gotta tell ya that my
My saints are down
That my saints are down
Let me tell you why
Saints are down

You're so wrapped up in your tiny self

Oh, let me tell ya
Saints are down, yes they are
Your saints are down
Your saints are down
The saints are down

They're down
And they're not coming round
Yeah, they're not easily found
Buried

Saints are down

Yes they are, well
