Track Name: Darlin' (Reprise)
season's gone and air is shrinking
I got high and I've been thinking, 'Gee, we used to be...'
let's get bored and let's get stupid
you play God and I'll play cupid
boy, you really destroyed me

and now I'll be smoking out my bedroom window 'cos air is free

and I'll sing:

darling, please forgive me
I'm in a world of hurting
this is a sea of disease.

every time I pulled you up for not loving me enough
all the while
the mere sight of you could make me smile
I never gave you credit for all you did -
you really were such a sweet, sweet kid
one day I hope you find a girl that makes you feel okay

because I never could be -
never really sure you felt that way for me

so I'd sing:

darling, please forgive me
I'm in a world of hurting
this is a sea of disease.

I'm sorry that I slept with him
but you went and did the exact same thing
and she...
she was, dayuuuum...
(butt ugly)
I know that it was hard for you - I know it was a hard thing to do to say 'I love you'

and now I'll be singing every lonely lonesome song for me

so I sing:


darling, please forgive me
I'm in a world of hurting
this is a sea of disease
and it's killing me.

but darling was it worth it each time you broke me?
because now I can't breathe.

I know it's not you I need
but please come back to me
I'm asking nicely.
Track Name: Fear and Loathing
I can read these lines like an open book until the curtain call
and someone tells you how wrong you look and that you could have had it all
where you drive on the right
I can't turn to save my life

you comment the shit out of my pain
... but could you call me that name again?

I think it's best now that you go

are you even awake?
are you seeing that I don't love you that way?

maybe I bought a vacant lot -
sold a nation out
did I?
Track Name: R.I.P Mon Cheri, Bonne Nuit
an ice age away
on a dusty yellow bay
lays a man who's spinning in his grave

he says we're gonna pay
come the ghosts of judgement day
and the band begins to play...

they play Hallelujah
we're all haunted by the scars that lead us to you
but you're never where you say you are
as usual

you're at my funeral.

flowers from a gun don't stand to hurt no-one
--they told you not to stare at the sun--
broken girls lay down their heavy curls
so you can decorate their necks with your precious pearls

they see right through you and your dirty rotten scars
they think they know you but you're never who you say you are
as usual

you're at my funeral.

well,
rest in peace, mon cheri:

bonne nuit.
Track Name: One Nation Under No-one
I was in Rome all on my own
the bodies have gone but you don't mind, you'll seek another
orbits align
you drum out of time
your star never shines 'cos you can't find a supernova

body and soul
how you love to roam
send us your coat
if it gets too warm

you're barely a man but you do what you can
with a wife that's at home and a good son to call your own
you're biting your tongue
the damage is done
and nobody's won
'cos your shit covers everyone

body and soul
how you love to roam
send us your coat
if it gets too warm

and you said:
'I'll bet that life is better there instead of where we live.'
but no regrets
for the life we could've led,
we made our bed.

February's laughing at your frequent understanding because you never get the flag right
those poor people.

back in '54 when the troops weren't stationed
no-one gave a fuck about One Nation
those poor people.

those poor people.
