Misery 03:59
Life is a cesspool of misery And I forgot to take my pills today Now I look around and I hate everything Cos life is a cesspool of misery yeah Life is a song that you don't want to sing You don't even know what key it's in And you only get one chance to play it perfectly Cos life is a cesspool of misery Come on! I am the dog that nobody wants Drowning in a river of jeers and taunts Life is a circus full of clowns and tigers And the inmates are running the asylum Life is a cesspool of misery Thank god it's only temporary I can't wait for death to come and set me free Cos life is a cesspool of misery Good god! A cesspool of misery (Take it to the bridge) No matter what I do no matter what I say Nothing ever ever seems to go my way I'm not quite ready for suicide So I guess I'll stick around for a little while I don't want to be me but everything dies On a black planet there's no time to cry Sing a sad song to get some relief Cos life is a cesspool of misery Life is a cesspool of misery And I forgot to take my pills today Now I can't wait for death to come and set me free Cos life is a cesspool... of misery! A cesspool of misery

Toy Museum 04:54
Tell me I'm dreaming, please tell me that you still love me I want to believe that, I haven't fucked up everything The nights have grown long, the nights have grown long and dark and freezing How can I go on? I'm wallowing in my own self pity Like exhibits in a toy museum Like the crumbling walls of the Colosseum I'm gathering dust and broken dreams The illusion has faded When the blue turns black When the blue turns black, when you left me I left the country I want to take it all back, want to take it all back but my bridges are burning Like exhibits in a toy museum Like the crumbling walls of the Colosseum I'm gathering dust and broken dreams The illusion has faded When the blue turns black  Baby I'm lonely now, my heart is crying out for you To just hold me now, don't let me go please hold me forever I'm just another sucker looking for some cheap kicks A wretched motherfucker with a bag of dirty tricks I never deserved a love like this, wake me up when it's over When the black turns grey Like exhibits in a toy museum Like the crumbling walls of the Colosseum I'm gathering dust and broken dreams   Wake me up when it's over When the black turns grey

Wake up in the morning It's time to face reality I can't help wondering  How did I ever end up here? Form a neat line Because it's time to take your pills Watch the Don Quixotes As they battle their windmills So I'm hanging out here With my angel in the cuckoo's nest We're swapping our stories about How life is a fucked up mess I'm feeling so high that I could almost fly There's bars on the windows  In case I really wanna try They'll loosen the straps If you promise not to bite They'll prick you with needles If you insist to fight There's a ginger genius That says she's the architect around here Let's go out on the balcony Maybe smoke will make our minds clear So I'm hanging out here With my angel in the cuckoo's nest We're swapping our stories about How life is a fucked up mess I'm feeling so high that I could almost fly There's bars on the windows  In case I really wanna try Let's sit in a circle and tell our woeful tales No one can help you If you refuse to help yourself I'll draw an angel for you And a demon for me We can laugh at all the in-jokes In our tragic poetry So I'm hanging out here With my angel in the cuckoo's nest We're swapping our stories about How life is a fucked up mess I'm feeling so high that I could almost fly There's bars on the windows  In case I really wanna try Because everything's fine As long as I'm here But where are you? Where have you gone?

Alienation 04:47
I was born out of darkness I clung on for dear life Branded with lasers Cut with the sharpest knife I burst out uninvited Covered in blood and shrieks Into the shadows I made my retreat Alienation (is what I feel) Alienation (got to persevere) Succumb to my killer instinct I grew to formidable size Now I am just a monster In their eyes Navigate the iron labyrinth I picked them off one by one I must embrace this beast That I've become Alienation (is what I feel) Alienation (got to persevere) I'm just trying to survive With my predatory guile As I sneak up behind With my wicked double smile If you pierce my hide I spill vitriolic bile It's corrosive to your skin That's just part of my design Through the unthinking process of natural selection The strong reap all the benefits The weak don't get a mention Don't save the pretty kitty Better run, better run Ready or not cos here I come Alienation (is what I feel) Alienation (got to persevere)

Walk with me down to the river Think of all the wrong we've done We'll wade out into the water Wash our hands clean of blood We bear the scars of ages  Marked by the ones we love We embrace the current that rages Dragging us to oblivion I have a tongue of silver I will tell you beautiful lies I'll make you share my burden I'll use you as a crutch When you listen to me I will lead you astray Why won't you listen to me? I promise I won't do it again Walk with me down to the river Feels like we've been here before You dragged my broken body Out on the burning shore You'll push me into the fire I'll pull you under the waves It's either all or nothing This is not a temporary phase Let's tell a different story Let's start over now Pretend it never happened We can make the past die Doesn't it sound so tempting To erase all the hurt? We can rip out those pages If you only say the word Let's write a brand new chapter We both know how it ends Let's just go through the motions As the cycle starts again Let's tell a different story Let's start over now - It's all or nothing Pretend it never happened We can make the past die - It's all or nothing I'm a manipulator I'm only filled with hatred - All or nothing As we lose control What a sight to behold - It's all or nothing All or nothing Walk with me down to the river Think of all the wrong we've done We'll wade out into the water Wash our hands clean of blood We bear the scars of ages  Marked by the ones we love We embrace the current that rages Dragging us to oblivion
