Track Name: Needy
I tried to
Sing about the truth
But that's a pretty hard thing
To face up to
All my friends
Are busy at the weekends
And I'm just getting busy
With the ones in my head

And it's luck
If I don't fall apart

So you should fuck me
Maybe that'd help you see
All of my potential
Cause that's all
It's all I'm really good for
But I can't even fill that hole, oh no,

Needy heart
Won't you fill me up
Cause I'm emptier
Than you

I tried to
Sing about the truth
But that's a pretty hard thing
To face up to

Needy heart
Won't you fill me up
Cause I'm emptier
Than you
Yeah I'm empty, yeah
Yeah I'm empty, yeah,
So fucking empty, yeah
Track Name: How Did You Get So Weak?
I'm losing my nerve
And I don't wanna eat
And I haven't slept right in weeks
I just think I don't deserve you
Like nearly everything
I have to show for myself
Worth having

So I thought, so I thought

How can you be so spineless?
When did you get so bleak?
Cause you were the one I admired
So how did you get so weak?
How did you get so weak?

I'm ready to blow
I'm bursting at the seams
From all the guilt that is inside of me
So put the words in my mouth
Before the voices speak
And say the things that I don't really mean

So I thought, so I thought

How can you be so spineless?
When did you get so bleak?
Cause you were the one I admired
So how did you get so weak?

How did you get so weak?
How did you get so weak?
How did you get so weak?
How did you get so weak?

How can you be so spineless?
When did you get so bleak?
Cause you were the one I admired
So how did you get so weak?

How can you be so spineless?
When did you get so bleak?
Cause you were the one I admired
So how did you get so weak?

How did you get so, weak? How did you get so, weak?
Track Name: Skin
Your face is covered in makeup
You wanna fit into the skin of someone else
The people call you a faker
But they're just jealous, no they don't understand
Why don't you tell 'em to shut up
You take 'em down with a hit and run
But just take a second to breath
Before the deed is done

Change my skin, I don't want it now
Get me out of it, I don't want it now

You love your independence
But you got an act for doing what you're told
You say that they're condescending you
Well change the record, before this tune gets old
You tried thinking for yourself
With the voice of someone else
We'll find a new a perspective
But don't forget to think, no!

Change my skin, I don't want it now
Get me out of it, I don't want it now

Heads or tails, up or down,
I don't know what you're talking about
I don't know what you're talking about
I don't know what you're talking about
Heads or tails, up or down
I don't know what you're talking about
I don't know what you're talking about
I don't know what you're talking about
Track Name: Choke
I can’t be your antidote for your sickness
The pressures on for one of us to reach the finish
So leave me to carry on my own devices
It won’t be done till I have sung about the crisis

It comes and goes It comes and goes

I can’t help myself
I could be someone else
But I’m not, I’m not
I can’t help myself
I’m just not able
I’m just not able

I can’t hand you over rope without resentment
You tie a knot for me to choke on in your absence
Never seen and never heard, with all your vices
It won’t be done till you have cut in all the slices

It comes and goes
(With your hands around my throat)
Yeah it comes and goes

But I can’t help myself
I could be someone else
But I’m not, I’m not
I can’t help myself
I’m just not able
I’m just not able

I’m not okay
I’m not okay, not okay

I can’t help myself
I could be someone else
But I’m not, I’m not
I can’t help myself
I’m just not able
I’m just not able

No, I can’t help myself
I could be someone else
But I’m not, I’m not
I can’t help myself
I’m just not able
I’m just not able
Track Name: Tied Up
You use and abuse me
You confuse me with your love
I can’t get a hold on what I feel
You choose to refuse me
Should I go and call your bluff
I can’t get a sense of what is real, or not

Need to take your love
It’s a drug to me
Just need to burn again, again

Take my love if it’s what you wanted
I’m all tied up and the damage is done
And the damage is done

You soothe and you move me
You peruse me with your touch
Watch as my secrets all unveil themselves
You’re keeping me hanging
Yet I still can’t get enough
How high should I jump?
And how far should I run?

I need to take your love
It’s like air to me
Or the blood will fall
On your hands, your hands

Take my love if it’s what you wanted
I’m all tied up and the damage is done

I would never come
Past the line you’ve drawn
Cause I’m well aware
Of where I stand
Better catch me while you can

Take my love if it’s what you wanted
I’m all tied up and the damage is done
Take my love if it’s what you wanted
I’m all tied up and the damage is done
And the damage is done
All tied up and the damage is done
Oh, oh, oh
And the damage is, done
Track Name: Turn Off
Turn off the lights and I want you to stay
Can't be alone by yourself anyway
Help me to see what you want me to say
Can't compromise yourself

Better count my blessings
Only cruel to be kind
Never second guessing
Never take my time
All your old excuses
Baby they're a crime
But I'll never do it,
So don't waste my time,

Turn off the lights and I want you to stay
Can't be alone by yourself anyway
Help me to see what you want me to say
Can't compromise yourself
Compromise yourself

It's all pathetic reasonss
All those things you did
But I'll never do it
I'll never put up with this
You could try religion
Wear a crucifix
But baby together
The two parts never fit

Turn off the lights and I want you to stay
Can't be alone by yourself anyway
Help me to see what you want me to say
Can't compromise yourself

Ah ah ah, ah ah ah
Ah ah ah, yeah yeah

Turn off the lights and I want you to stay
Track Name: Human
Hey, what you saying?
You keep turning round your head the other way
Fake, that you're smiling
But It's obvious to me your masquerade

I’m only human, human, human
That's what I am
I’m only human, human, human
That’s what I am

Make, a decision
The procrastination's driving me insane
For goodness sake
Shouldn't of said it
Now the benefits of doubt have gone again, oh

Maybe it ain't right, I know
But it feels so good

I’m only human, human, human
That's what I am
I’m only human, human, human
That’s what I am
Hey, hey, yeah!

All my life I've been looking for someone
To help me take it up a pace
Just give me one more hit, come on, come on
I just need a little taste,
Here we go, going round again
Lu-La-La-living in the fast lane
Just living for the high
We keep on going till we break, we break
Ahh-I-I

I’m only human, human, human
That's what I am
I’m only human, human, human
That’s what I am,
I’m only human, human, human
That's what I am
I’m only human, human, human oh, oh, woah
Yeah, yeah, yeah


Backing Vocals Over Final Chorus:
Break, break, break Break, break the habit We gotta break, break it off Break, break, break Break, break the habit We gotta break, break,
Track Name: Slave
I'm your slave
I'm your whore
Give me one of everything
And I want more, more
Held me, up against my will
Can't leave, close my eyes so I
Can't see, trapped inside my own body, again

Hold on
Can you hear me screaming?
Can't stop now
I can't lose this feeling, now,

So I break
Off my shell
I feel safe, then you send me
Straight back to hell, yeah
Rape me, infiltrate me cause
I need, you to make me feel
Happy, medicate me, medicate me,
Medicate me, medicate me

Hold on
Can you hear me screaming?
Can't stop now
I can't lose this feeling, now,

Coming, out I can't stand I'm
Falling, down to your feet I,
Can't breath, suffocating, recoiling
And back I go inside of me
Track Name: Baby Goodnight
There you were, this little thing
Always asking questions 'bout everything
But what you saw, should not be seen
By a little kid who's only just turned 13
But I know, just what you meant
When you turned to me and said

It's funny how life
Never turns out the way we think
Try as we might
It's still a gambler's lottery

So here we are, bones and skin
It's funny how time changes perspective
But at the core, of everything
You were always anticipating
So there you go, and here I'll stay
But I'll remember what you said that day

It's funny how life
Never turns out the way we think
And try as we might
It's still a gambler's lottery
So roll me the dice
I'll take my chances in other things
Baby goodnight
But thanks for taking a bet on me

I can't scrape the feeling
Ah ah ah ah oh
That you didn't mean it feeling
Ah ah ah ah oh
Guess I'll have to leave it up to you

It's funny how life
Never turns out the way we think, no
It turns out my mind
It was the worst of my enemies, oh
We fought the good fight
It's time to move on to better things, darling
So baby goodnight
But thanks for taking a bet on me,
Thanks for keeping your faith in me,
It wasn't you baby, it's just me,
Some things are just as they're meant to be.
Track Name: 69
You can do
What you want
All I ask is that you give me my fair share
Always do
Until you don’t
So just keep on going till you get me there
Yeah

Laying under me
I guess nothing could
Have happened yet
But it’s no good for me
When you’re just laying there
Playing
Dead!

So don’t give up
No don’t you quit
Cause I’m not
The type to fake,
It,

Laying under me
I guess nothing could
Have happened yet
But it’s no good for me
When you’re just laying there
Playing
Dead!

Laying under me
I guess nothing could
Have happened yet
But it’s no good for me
When you’re just laying there
Playing
When you’re laying there
Playing
Dead
Playing
Dead

No it’s no good for me
When you’re just laying there
It’s no good for me, good for me
When you’re just laying there
Oh-oh
Track Name: Easy Target
You wanna help me but you’re making it hard
Just like an animal resisting a killing
I keep my fingers to myself in the dark
But the turn light on if you dare to my darling

Ooh, ooh
I can’t keep looking away
Ooh, ooh
I can’t keep hiding

Look at the mess that we made
Look what we started
We carry on all the same
Shoot for the target

Turning intimacy into and art
Got me begging you to come here and paint me
Watch me moving like a black jaguar
Just like a hunter, with it’s prey for the taking

Ooh, ooh
But how much time will it take
Ooh, ooh
Until you find me

Look at the mess that we made
Look what we started
We carry on all the same
Shoot for the target

Shoot for the target
Shoot for the target
Ooh-ooh, oh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, oh

Look at the mess that we made
Look what we started
We carry on all the same
Shoot for the target
Ooh, ooh
Shoot for the target,
Ooh, ooh
Shoot for the target,
Ooh, ooh
Shoot for the target,
Ooh, ooh
Shoot for the target
Track Name: Look What You've Done
I could give you love
If you get close enough
Just one little touch, and I’m there
For you
But I’m a fool, I know
‘Cause you’ll never make that call
The time that I wasted, with you
With you

But it’s over now
Oh, can you feel me?

Look what you’ve done
Ya could have, had it all
Ya son of a gun, with your back
‘Gainst the wall
Look what you’ve done
Could have had, had it all
Ya son of a gun, with your back
'Gainst the wall

Oh look, what have you done to me
Can’t go on, wanna, wanna get out of here

‘Cause I loved you too much
But it was not enough
Guess I’m at a loss, with you
With you

But it’s over now
Oh, can you feel me?

Look what you’ve done
Ya could have, had it all
Ya son of a gun, with your back
‘Gainst the wall
Look what you’ve done
Could have had, had it all
Ya son of a gun, with your back
'Gainst the wall

Look what you’ve done
Look what you, look what you, look what you, look what you, look what you’ve done
Look what you’ve done
Look what you, look what you, look what you, look what you, look what you’ve done,

Look what you’ve done
Ya could have, had it all
Ya son of a gun, with your back
‘Gainst the wall
Look what you’ve done
Could have had, had it all
Ya son of a gun, with your back
'Gainst the wall

Look what you’ve done
Look what you, look what you, look what you, look what you, look what you’ve done
Look what you’ve done
Look what you, look what you, look what you, look what you, look what you’ve done
Track Name: Everything Is Going Swimmingly
Everybody's watching me
Waiting for the time to leave
No-one ever stays to watch you, bleed
I need a little company
I don't want any sympathy
I just need a little something, sweet

So have another drink with me
Have another line with me
Everybody wants to feel something

I am not a waster
I am not a faker
Only ever get what you see with me
Take it or leave it
Do or don't believe it
I am everything and not what you see

Ah ah ah, ah ah ah
Ah ah ah, ah ah ah

Over-ticking time machine
I wanna take in everything
Cause time is of the essence, darling
And everybody's judging me
I've over-worn my apathy
Everything is going swimmingly

I am not a waster
I am not a faker
Only ever get what you see with me
Take it or leave it
Do or don't believe it
I am everything and not what you see

Ah ah ah, ah ah ah
Ah ah ah, ah ah ah

Everybody's watching me
Waiting for the time to leave
No-one ever stays to watch you, bleed
