Tracklist

London Crawling

length: 4:44

I'll call you up from a phone box
Your light is on it's 3 o' clock
We'll go for a drive with the radio on
And you'll come alive to a forgotten song

London crawling through the sodium glow
Just like lovers again
Slipping between the sheets of dirty rain

London crawling through the sodium glow
Just like lovers again
Slipping between the sheets of dirty rain

Under the cover of the narcotic night
The streaming colours of the traffic lights
The two of us dreading the end
Burning our money in a basement

London crawling through the sodium glow
Just like lovers again
Slipping between the sheets of dirty rain

Sunday morning and I don't want to go
Back to my single bed
To be lying alone out of my head

Don't stop at the lights
There's no one else coming

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la

London crawling through the sodium glow
Just like lovers again
Slipping between the sheets of dirty rain

Sunday morning and I don't want to go
Back to my single bed
To be lying alone out of my head

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la

Anything Could Happen

length: 4:15
They tried to kill us off
But this show's not over
Cos we were born to shine
And thrill like supernova

So dry your tears don't cry now
It's nowhere near the final curtain

[Chorus]
Anything could happen
This world's uncertain
Anything could happen

Down every darkened street
We'll search until we find them
With knives between our teeth
We'll creep up behind them
Oh 'cos creatures of our kind will not give in
Until the final curtain.

[Chorus]

I know you're hurting
Anything could happen
Anything could happen oh

I know you're hurting
But anything could happen
This world's uncertain
Anything could happen

La la la la, la la, la la la la, la la [Repeat x2]

Anyone Out There?

length: 3:23
On a mission through the night
Sounds and actions, flashing lights
Don't care what time's on the clock
Hear the discotheque tick-tock

Before they play the final tune
And I'm standing alone in a crowded room
Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone out there?
There must be somebody somewhere
Is there anyone out there?

What's the point in going home
To a silent answer phone?
Smoking cigarettes in bed
Noises ringing in your head

Before they play the final tune
And I'm standing alone in a crowded room
Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone out there?
There must be somebody somewhere
Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone out there?
There must be somebody somewhere
Is there anyone out there?

Catherine's Wheel

length: 5:22
Like a shot from the dark
In the silence of night
Down the black boulevard
Come the blinding headlights
If it isn't the hit
It's the thrill of the chase
You've got to admit
It's a hell of a place

[Chorus:]
But when she turns
How she sparkles and burns
And I am bound by her spell
I'm tied to her carousel
Like shooting stars
That scratch away at the dark
I know that my fate is sealed
On Catherine's wheel

So look down the tracks
See how far you've come
There's no turning back
The deal is done
Take hold of the rail
It's a heart-stopping ride
The sparks fall like hail
As she draws me inside

[Chorus]

Oh, the record goes round
The needle goes down
On a forgotten sound

[Chorus x 2]

Idiot Twin

length: 4:18
My idiot twin
Like a second skin
I just can't shake him
He's my stupid Siamese
A terminal disease
Forgive me please

[Chorus]
My idiot twin
He's part of me
But one day I'll kill him
He is my idiot twin
When he dies
I'm gonna be king
My idiot twin

My unwanted Gemini
The things I'd like to hide
Eat me inside
Times I wish I could forget
Crippled by regret
Dogging my steps

[Chorus]

All of the things I shouldn't have said
He put those ideas in my head
I want him dead

Shatterproof

length: 4:40
They may throw stones against the glass
But there's no need to worry
One day they'll want out help and ask
We'll turn and say we're sorry
If all the stars fall from the sky
And we've got nothing to cling to
There'll always be a you and I
And this is the song I'll sing you

(BRIDGE)
You and me should stick together
We were built to last forever

(CHORUS)
Shatterproof
Don't let go of your youth
If we don't run the race
Then we can never lose
Shatterproof
Because we know the truth
If we don't run the race
Then we can never lose

It doesn't matter what they say
Because the night is calling
I know a place where we can play
And watch the statues falling
''cause with this feeling in our blood
We'll be forever young
And our two hearts will always thud
Just like the rhythm of drums

(REPEAT BRIDGE)
(REPEAT CHORUS)

With just our hearts to guide us
We'll leave them all behind us
Oh no they'll never find us now

Shatterproof
Don't let go of your youth
If we don't run the race
Then we can never lose
Shatterproof
Because we know the truth
If we don't run the race
Then we don't ever have to lose
And we'll always be shatterproof

Shatterproof
Shatterproof
Shatterproof

Brilliant Fake

length: 3:22
Na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na na na

I like the taste
That's why I swallow the lies
'Cause everybody needs faith
If they want to survive
Give me your hand
Oh, I will fall to my knees
In such a beautiful sham
I was born to believe

I don't care
Whatever
Just kill the pain and stop the ache
Whatever it takes
Lie to me
I'm happy
And in your arms I will escape
You're my brilliant fake

Na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na na na

All of my life
I've never known what was real
But does it matter what is right
If you like what you feel?

I don't care
Whatever
Just kill the pain and stop the ache
Whatever it takes
Lie to me
I'm happy
And in your arms I will escape
Oh, my brilliant fake

Na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na na na

Three Ring Circus

length: 4:24
The lights go out without a sound
You can feel the mounting tension
On the bed of nails where we've laid down
Far too many times to mention

[Chorus:]
I was on the high wire looking down
For my safety net
When I swear I saw you with that clown
How can I forget?

You can learn to swallow swords
But it hurts so much more
Swallowing my pride
On a three-ring circus ride

They watch us from the ringside seats
As the knife throwing commences
And though it all looks very cheap
I still can't bring you to your senses

[Chorus]

You can learn to swallow swords
But it hurts so much more
Swallowing your pride
On a three-ring circus ride

Some people ride the wall of death
And it's so dangerously thrilling
Some people fall and break their necks
With just the sky above still spinning

Juggling a precious thing
Pretty soon it will all be broken
If you think I'll jump through hoops with him
I think you must be joking

[Chorus]

You know that trick they do with swords
Well it hurts so much more
Swallowing my pride
On a three-ring circus ride

Drive

length: 4:13
Voices in my head
Say it's getting light
It's hard to go to bed
When you've been up all night

So as the day slips through the blinds
Don't let us break down
We should be racing from this murder scene

Like jets that cross the sky
Leaving our trails to fade and die
I know we're confused
But we've nothing to lose
Let's get in the car and drive

Through the twisted streets
With neon in our veins
And in our hearts there beats
The sound of subway trains

I know tomorrow's nearly here
Don't let it stop now
We should be rushing from the burning crash

Like jets that cross the sky
Leaving our trails to fade and die
The dawn's gonna break
We're both still awake
Let's get in the car and drive

Get in the car and drive
So grab the keys
Forget the trash
We'll take the car
We'll take the cash
And somewhere down the motorway
We'll find a place where we can stay forever

Get in the car and drive
Get in the car and drive
Get in the car and drive

Deep Space

length: 4:44
What if there's another world
Circling a distant star
And on this planet lives a girl
Won't you tell me where you are?

(CHORUS)
I'm in deep space
I think I'm falling
And I feel like I'm a million miles from home
I'm in deep space
Can you hear me calling?
''cause I'm searching for the light to save my soul
Is there anybody there that can pull me out of this black hole?

From the past right to the present
I've been waiting for a sign
For an angel sent from heaven
A rocket in this starless sky

(REPEAT CHORUS)
Well I built myself a capsule
And I've drifted days and nights
When I look into the darkness
There's a vacuum in my life

I'm in deep space
I think I'm falling
And I feel like I'm a million miles from home
I'm in deep space
Can you hear me calling?
''cause I'm searching for the light to save my soul
Is there anybody there that can pull me out of this deep space?

I'm in deep space
I'm in deep space
Is there anybody there that can pull me out of this deep space?

Underneath a Distant Moon

length: 3:14
Goodbye world, adios
This is where I'm getting off
They say I'm lost
But I'm happy here

All you boys and you girls
Who were not made for this world
I know a way to where you'll feel immune
Underneath a distant moon

Memories mingle with dreams
Like old newspapers in the wind
Sometimes they drift along for miles
Or cling to something for a while
Before they're gone
Over the roof tops and beyond

Let this night take me and you
And wrap us in its velvet blue
And from this world we'll be delivered soon
Underneath a distant moon

Someone That She Used to Know

length: 2:55
That I haven't heard in quite a while
But I've seen her with boys
That I didn't think would be her style

Always around out on the town
She can barely say "hello"
Waving at her watching me drown
I'm just someone that she used to know

The screeching of brakes
Of a taxi in the midnight rain
Is all that it takes
To bring it back to her again

See her around out on the town
She can barely say "hello"
Waving at her watching me drown
Just someone that she used to know
Someone that she used to know

See her around out on the town
She can barely say "hello"
Waving at her watching me drown
Like someone that she used to know

See her around out on the town
She can barely say "hello"
Waving at her watching me drown
Just someone that she used to know
