Track Name: Prelapsarian
It's a violence intrusive, a violence inclusive,
Oh privacy's all at an end...

Oh watch the dirt it's on the screen now,
Click you decide,
Research a theory that you should, deride,
I'm at the forum for an unhealthy ride,
Because my brain's desensitised...

Oh all the insides on display now,
Psychoanalyse,
A prelapsarian could not, survive,
You open up or else you, die.
Oh Adam what did you decide...?

Oh why do you seem, so surprised?
We changed our names into long numbers,
Long numbers....

Oh my
Don't we electrify
Only please televise
On standby
Track Name: Judas
And are you feeling just quite right,
Now you've seen the other side,
I wasn't sure if it was tight,
I wasn't sure how much I'd lied...

So follow me, no don't leave me,
Don't cheat me, don't cheat me,
So follow me, deliver me,
Don't cheat me, don't cheat me.

And i know that there's a circle there,
And its people well they don't care,
I don't notice if you like it much,
Let's just do it for the rush...

Follow me, no don't leave me,
Don't cheat me don't cheat me,
So follow me, deliver me,
Don't cheat me, don't cheat me.
Track Name: Bleached Bones
We found bones, bleached by the sun
Oh Lord, what have we done?
Cause you lied and you cheated with the rest, now
You face the desert now yeah your final test
Oh take it, but where will you stay?
No spare stables for the horses, the horses, today

Oh Lord, take me higher
Light my fire
And shut the door.
Oh Lord, you're such a liar
Little town crier
Well not much more

Beware the vultures that feed on their own dead
Beware the snake that'll crawl in your bed.
We found bones, bleached by the sun,
Oh lord, what have we done?
Oh take them, but where will they lay
No spare caskets for sinners and outcasts today

Oh Lord, take me higher
Just light the fire
And shut the door.
Oh Lord, you're such a liar
Little town crier
For not much more
Track Name: Sick With Love
You were sick with love
And now you've got to go
One night is not enough
To even say hello

Reciprocation made it real
Now I'm down low
One night is not enough
To even say hello

You fell in love with
Something you wanted to be
Are you now
Happy?

Whether it's the stuff that's in my brain
Or the blood that's in my veins
I'll always love you
In every single way
I was too scared to get too close
I don't want to see my ghost
But I'll always love you
In every single way

You fell in love with
Something you wanted to be
Are you now
Happy?
Track Name: Follow Your Leaders
In my garden intensify my love, it's dry
It takes a thousand years to blind, and see.
Oh split the rock and open up my soul
Cause in the foliage something knows.

I don't know why I am, I'm following
I heard his words they seemed wise and true.
We've all had falls but we're not suffering
We're told our souls are pure as new.

Follow your leaders
Follow your leaders home
Time, they make you smile
By your own.

We've all had falls and we're now suffering
Because the cure don't seem so sweet
He pulled the wool, or she gave us a smile
So we walked as if asleep.

Follow your leaders
Follow your leaders home
Time, they make you smile
By your own.

A kiss
And I will show you
A kiss
To make him bleed.

Teach us to care and not to care
Settle for something inbetween
It's teeth it's a wild beast, oh no.

Follow your leaders
Follow your leaders home.

Follow your leaders
Follow your leaders home
Follow your leaders
Why don't you just leave us alone?
Track Name: Love Letter
I don't think I'm gonna leave better
Lost my head when I said that I would go and get her
Are you sending me a love letter?
I don't think I'm gonna make it any better

I've seen you all smoking cheese
You're crawling to me on your knees
I'll be fine, I'll be fine
Pour myself another glass of wine

I don't know why I'm so scared
Saw you smoking on the stairs
Now I'm scared, now I'm scared
Now i I see you've got your teeth bared

I don't think I'm gonna leave better
Lost my head when I said that I would go and get her
Are you sending me a love letter?
I don't think I'm gonna make it any better

I've lost hope but you know best
Is this just another test
Run away, run away
Escape to live and fight another day

Are you mad, but I'm still stoned
Just a skill that I have honed
Are you fine, are you fine
Let's go have another glass of wine

FASTER!

I don't think I'm gonna leave better
Lost my head when I said that I would go and get her
Are you sending me a love letter?
I don't think I'm gonna make it any better
