01. Epilepsy

I've got a problem
This infernal love
It burns like wire
This infernal love

This infernal love
This infernal love
This infernal love

I've got a problem
I can't leave you alone
I don't want this
This infernal love

This infernal love
This infernal love
This infernal love

I've got a problem
This infernal love
It burns like wire
This infernal love

This infernal love
This infernal love
This infernal love

(Love love love love)
(Hey)


02. Stories

Get into the car and keep it down
City lights look like warnings now
She's got someone that pays for things
Trust me she won't miss a thing

Come with me and believe me
Yeah (happy people have no stories)
Yeah (happy people have no stories)
Yeah (happy people have no stories)
Yeah (happy people have no stories)

I get by on what I have
Less than Jesus, more than dad
Enough to keep me in this state
Ticking through to the next escape

Come with me and believe me
Yeah (happy people have no stories)
Yeah (happy people have no stories)
Yeah (happy people have no stories)
Yeah (happy people have no stories)

I woke up late and I rolled the stone
Laziness and death in one
You were once a gentleman
Ended up a bitter man

Come with me and believe me
Yeah (happy people have no stories)
Yeah (happy people have no stories)
Yeah (happy people have no stories)
Yeah (happy people have no stories)
Yeah (happy people have no stories)
Yeah (happy people have no stories)
Yeah (happy people have no stories)
Yeah (happy people have no stories)

Happy people have no stories


03. A Moment Of Clarity

I thought of you tonight, in simple twists and turns
Incarcerated here, I'm handcuffed to your world
Your innocence is cruel, coquettish and arcane
But I need it all the same

I thought of you tonight, in silent seething heat
Through charred and damned desire, dark Eros wounding me
Your innocence is cruel, and your ass like Jesus feet
Worth kissing, worth kissing

Give yourself to me, I share your need
Give yourself to me and come to me
Give yourself to me, I share your need
Give yourself to me, I share your need

I thought of you tonight, through blank and starving eyes
In this one moment of clarity, blink the darkness in my eyes
Your lips like bruised vulva, your ass like Jesus feet
Worth kissing, give yourself to me

I thought of you tonight, in silent seething heat
Through charred and damned desire, dark Eros killing me
Your lips like bruised vulva, your ass like Jesus feet
Worth kissing, worth kissing

Give yourself to me, I share your need
Give yourself to me, I share your need
Give yourself to me, I share your need
Give yourself to me, I share your need

Kiss me through your warming darkness
Kiss me now so I can breathe
Kiss me once then I am leaving
Kiss me once then kiss yourself goodbye

I thought of you tonight, in simple twists and turns
Incarcerated here, I'm handcuffed to this world


04. Jude The Obscene

He was born the same time as me
To a small souled woman who died 23

Now you're here, they can't shove you back
I know you live your life out of spite

And I'm waiting for Jude the obscene (Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)
I'm waiting for Jude the obscene (Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)
(Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)
(Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)

The good ones first so get back in the queue
(So get back in the queue)
You trawled your way through our grim school
(You trawled your way through our grim school)

I hear your crowing in my sleep, in my dreams
A great dark wave shivers over me

I'm waiting for Jude the obscene (Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)
I'm waiting for Jude the obscene (Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)
(Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)
(Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)

(Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)
(Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)
(Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)
(Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)

Boys with bashed in eyes line the roads
(Boys with bashed in eyes line the roads)
But the longest walk was the walk back home
(The longest walk) Alone (was the walk back home)

Now you're here, they can't shove you back
You go on living your life out of spite

And I'm waiting for Jude the obscene (Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)
I'm waiting for Jude the obscene (Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)
I'm waiting for Jude the obscene (Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)
Waiting for Jude the obscene (Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)
Waiting for Jude the obscene (Waiting, I'm waiting, I'm)


05. Bowels Of Love

Yeah, you took me, naive and ugly, into your festering heart
And you poured Eros' maggots down my throat, until I choked

There's nothing darker than love that's gone sour
Satan's spit, love that's gone sour

Yeah, you took me, naive and ugly, into your festering heart
And you rammed Eros' maggots down my throat, until I choked

There's nothing darker than love that's gone sour, Satan's spit
Nothing darker than love that's gone sour, Satan's spit

Out of the bowels of love
Bowels of love
Bowels of love
Bowels of love

Out of the bowels of love
Bowels of love
Bowels of love
Bowels of love

Love
Love


06. Misery

Here comes the misery, yeah
Coming back to make me pay, yeah
I wanted you haunting me, but not just yet
Give the memories time to blossom into regret

You come to my house, I don't know what you're talking about
I owe you nothing, I owe you nothing,
You say you need friends or something
Just shut up, I'm feeling guilty, get away from me I'm thinking
No way this again

You come and stand and face me, you're betrayed
Like I should say something or ask you to stay
And now you're gonna go all girlie on me
You always left me wanting, now I want you to leave

You can talk about the things that you say you left behind
While you lead me down dark alleys in the ghettos of your mind
You've got that look on your face, that I could never comprehend anyway

Fuck you, waste my time
And tell me that you're broken hearted now
A long way back to where you've been
You cry alone, martyrs alone

Here comes the misery, yeah
Coming back to make me pay, once again
I wanted you haunting me, but not just yet
You better go before I do something I regret

You can run, call the cops, cry your eyes out, give them the lot
You can say I marked your face,
But you do these things to yourself anyway
I can never be with you, this is over, this is over, this is over, hey


07. Bad Mother

It's a beautiful day, but I don't see it that way
The sky's too bright for my tired eyes to take
And I wish I was home, I'm edgy, cramped and cold
Trying to keep down the things that you keep wanting to throw Up

You only mean it, 'cos you look like Jesus
You really mean it, when you look like Jesus

In your retirement home, watching you wanting to die
This thing has sucked all the dignity from your life
And this used to be fun, this used to be what you want
Now its just the same as everything, you run away

You only mean it, if you look like Jesus
You really mean it, 'cos you look like Jesus

The vicious vulgar colours clash, like the twelfth day of July
Left abandoned in a field, endless wailing scaring me
I could see beyond the field, being left alone in lonely summer
I am stuck out here, waiting for you to take me home

You only mean it, if you look like Jesus
You only mean it, if you look like Jesus
You only mean it, 'cos you look like Jesus
You only mean it, 'cos you look like Jesus
(I'm falling, I'm falling)
You only mean it, 'cos you look like Jesus
You really mean it, 'cos you look like Jesus
You only mean it, 'cos you look like Jesus
You really mean it, you really mean it, 'cos you look like Jesus
You really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it (I'm falling)
You really mean it
You really mean it
You really mean it


08. Me Vs. You

I just came to get my things
I'm not drunk or anything
I saw a light on in your house
Undo the chain and let me in, I want to talk

I never wanted this disease
I never wanted you to leave, hey
I never wanted this disease
I never wanted you, I never wanted you to leave

It used to give me guilty thrills
Feeling in control and feeding on your innocence
I watched you torture yourself days
And fucking you got boring when it didn't feel so wrong

I never wanted this disease
I never wanted you to leave, hey
I never wanted this disease
I never wanted you, I never wanted you to leave

(I can see you in my dreams)
(I can see you in my dreams)
(I can see you in my dreams)
(I can see you in my dreams)

Let the grass grow over me
Let the grass grow over me
Let the grass grow over me
Let the grass grow over me
You watch the grass grow over me
You watch the grass grow over me
You watch the grass grow over me
You watch the grass grow over me

(I can see you in my dreams)
I never wanted this disease
(I can see you in my dreams)
I never wanted you except when you were on your knees
(I can see you in my dreams)
I never wanted this disease
(I can see you in my dreams)
I never, I never, I never wanted you to leave

09. Loose

Let me try on your dress, it turns me on when we're a mess
Something's kicking in, I smell the summer on your skin
I'm sick of being down, we're coming up so let's go out
We won't live forever now, so let's make the most of it somehow

Your body is loose (And you're going down)
Your body is loose (You're going down)
Your body is loose (And you're going down)
Today

I don't care where you're from,
Whatever planet you think you're on
'Cos you're my space cadet, I'll go anywhere with you, yeah
Maybe you're still lonely, but I love you, you're my best friend
We look like sister and brother, according to all our friends

Your body is loose (And you're going down)
Your body is loose (You're going down)
Your body is loose (And you're going down)
Today

Your body is loose (And you're going down)
Your body loose (You're going down), yeah
Your body is loose (And you're going down)
Today

There's no guns firing now, big yellow cranes hold up the clouds
And this season's changed me, I've fallen into a different skin
We make quite a pair and we look stupid, we don't care
We need no explanation, just keep on taking the happy pills

Your body is loose (And you're going down)
Your body is loose (And you're going down)
Your body is loose (And you're going down)
Today

Your body is loose (And you're going down)
Your body is loose (And you're going down), yeah
Your body is loose (And you're going down)
Today

Let me try on your dress


10. Diane

Hey little girl, wanna go for a ride?
There's room and my wagon is parked right outside
We can cruise down Robert Street all night long
But I think I'll just rape you and kill you instead

Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane)
Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane)

I hear there's a party at Lake Cove
It'd be so much easier if I drove
We could check it out, we can go and see
Come on, take a ride with me

Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane)
Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane)

Lay down together for a while
I'll put all your clothes in a nice neat little pile
You're the cutest girl I've ever seen in my life
But it's over now and with my knife

Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane)
Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane)
Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane)
Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane), Diane (Diane)


11. 30 Seconds

I can feel you breathing and you're sticking to my skin
Someone shut the morning up, my conscience creeps back in
I don't hear the words you say when you just come around
I don't hear the words you say, I just see you lie

There's one thing that I should remember
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There's one thing that I should remember
There is a light at the end of the tunnel

Buggered by a priest when you were seven years of age
The age of understanding came with blood and semen stains
All your hope in politics, handed back yourself
Is there anything as disgraceful I can see again

There's one thing that I should remember
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There's one thing that I should remember
There is a light at the end of the tunnel

How did we get from the blue lamp disco to cracking up in San Francisco
I look at myself in a sober light, I'm not Elvis but I'm alright

I can feel your breathing when you tear me from within
Unhinged and unravelled as you rip my fucking skin
I can put my head back on but it's the wrong way round
Feeling up the ladder, you won't get back down

There's one thing that I should remember
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There's one thing that I should remember
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There's one thing that I should remember
Oh, there is a light at the end of the tunnel
There's one thing that I should remember
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
