Suddenly something has happened to me
As I was having my cup of tea
Suddenly I was feeling depressed
I was utterly and totally stressed
Do you know you made me cry
Do you know you made me die

And the thing that gets to me
Is you’ll never really see
And the thing that freaks me out
Is I’ll always be in doubt
It is a lovely thing that we have
It is a lovely thing that we
It is a lovely thing, the animal
The animal instinct

So take my hands and come with me
We will change reality
So take my hands and we will pray
They won’t take you away
They will never make me cry, no
They will never make me die
And the thing that gets to me
Is you’ll never really see
And the thing that freaks me out
Is I’ll always be in doubt

The animal, the animal,
The animal instinct in me
It’s the animal, the animal,
The animal instinct in me
It’s the animal, it’s the animal,
It’s the animal instinct in me x2

I hope that you miss me
Put me down on history
I feel such a reject now
Get yourself a life
I hope that you're sorry
For not accepting me
For not adoring me
That's why I'm not your wife

People are stranger
People in danger
People are stranger
People deranged or

I remember there was
Nothing I could ever do
Never could impress you
Even if I tried
Tell somebody who cares
Fill the room with empty stares
Go to bed and say my prayers
Keep them satisfied

People are stranger
People in danger
People are stranger
People deranged

Loud and clear I make my point my dear

I hope that you never
Get the things you wanted to
Now I cast a spell on you
Complicate your life
Hope you get a puncture
Everywhere you ever drive
Hope the sun beats down on you and
Skin youself alive

You better believe I'm coming
You better believe what I say
You better hold on to your promises
Because you bet, you'll get what you deserve
She's going to leave him over
She's gonna take her love away
So much for your eternal vows, well
It does not matter anyway

Why can't you stay here awhile
Stay here awhile
Stay with me

Oh, all the promises we made
All the meaningless and empty words
I prayed, prayed, prayed
Oh, all the promises we broke
All the meaningless and empty words
I spoke, spoke, spoke

Do-do-do, do-do-do,
Do-do-do, do-do-do

What of all the things that you taught me
What of all the things that you'd say
What of all your prophetic preaching
You're just throwing it all away
Maybe we should burn the house down
Have ourselves another fight
Leave the cobwebs in the closet
Cause tearing them out is just not right

Why can't you stay here awhile
Stay here awhile
Stay with me, oh oh!

Oh eh, oh eh, oh eh,
Oh eh [Repeat x4]

Do-do-do

Aahh, you and me it will always be
You and me Forever be,
Eternally it will always be you and me

Find your own direction 'cause there's sweetness in the air
You will be the world to me and I will always be
Dwelling in this happiness, your gift of purity

There was a game we used to play
We would hit the town on friday night
Stay in bed until sunday
We used to be so free
We were living for the love we had,
Living not for reality

Just my imagination x3
It was...
Just my imagination x3
It was...

That was a time I used to pray
I have always kept my faith in love
It's the greatest thing from the man above
The game I used to play
I've always put my cards upon the table
Let it never be said that I'd unstable

Just my imagination x3
It was...
Just my imagination x3
It was...

There is a game I like to play
I like to hit the town on friday night
Stay in bed until sunday
We'll always be this free
We will be living for the love we have
Living not for reality

It's not my imagination x3
It was...

It was...
Not my x16

I'm trying to control myself
So please don't stand in my way
I've waited for the longest time
This is what I wanted in my way

Move over, move over
There's a climax coming in my way
Move over, move over
There's a climax coming in my way

I don't like you, don't compromise
Shattered by your weakness
Shattered by your smile
And I'm not very fond of you, and your lies
Shattered by your weaknesses
Shattered by your smile

All the kids are going back to school
The summer's over it's the golden rule
And now I'm coming out to play
So please don't stand in my way
And all the things that seemed once to be
So important to me
Seem so trivial now that I can see

Move over, move over
There's a climax coming my way
Move over, move over
There's a climax coming my way

I don't like you, don't compromise
Shattered by your weakness
Shattered by your smile
And I'm not very fond of you, and your lies
Shattered by your weaknesses
Shattered by your smile
Shattered by your weaknesses
Shattered by your smile
Shattered by your weaknesses
I was Shattered by your smile
Shattered by your weaknesses
I was Shattered by your smile

Please don't stand in my way

They had an accident
And they never noticed anyway
A lack of originality
Couldn’t focus on the day
So much for the radio
Everybody sounds the same
Everybody wears the same clothes now
And everybody plays the game

Copycat, copycat, copycat
Copy copy copy copy yourself
Copycat, copycat, copycat
Copy copy copy everyone else

I’ve got a great idea
I will change things on my own
I see my vision very clear,
Wouldn’t wanna be another clone
So much for the radio, the radio is sad
Sad, sad, sad

They had an accident
But they never noticed anyway
A lack of originality
Couldn’t focus on the day
So much for the radio
Everybody sounds the same
Everybody wears the same clothes now,
And everybody plays the game

Copy everyone else x4

Fee fi fo she smells his body
She smells his body
And it makes her sick to her mind
He has got so much to answer for
To answer for, to ruin a child’s mind

How could you touch something
So innocent and pure
Obscure
How could you get satisfaction
From the body of a child
You’re vile, sick

It’s true what people say
God protect the ones who help themselves
In their own way
It’s true what people say
God protect the ones who help themselves
In their own way

He was sitting in her bedroom
In her bedroom
And now what should she do
She’s got so much insecurity
And his impurity it was a gathering gloom

How could you touch something
So innocent and pure
Obscure
How could you get satisfaction
From the body of a child you’re a vile, sick

Sorry son, this is what I’ve done

It was a long sad supper without you
I had to be cruel to be kind
We have to leave the past behind
La la la
And isn’t it strange how people can change
And isn’t it weird how people I feared
They all seem worthless now

I will ride on my bicycle,
I ride thinking of you
As I’m riding on my tricycle,
I ride

I see the sun in the trees,
And I feel the psychedelic breeze
And I see the sun in the trees,
And I feel the psychedelic breeze

Sorry son, this is what I’ve done
This is what I’ve done
It was a long sad supper without you
Please don’t hold me responsible
I tried and tried
It wasn’t the same without my brain
It wasn’t a game, it wasn’t a game
Oh not now

I will ride on my bicycle,
I ride thinking of you
As I’m riding on my tricycle,

And I feel the psychedelic breeze

All my life
Is changing every day
In every possible way

In all my dreams
It's never quite as it seems
Never quite as it seems

I know I've felt like this before
But now I'm feeling it even more
Because it came from you

Then I open up and see
The person falling here is me
A different way to be

I warn more
Impossible to ignore
Impossible to ignore

They'll come true
Impossible not to do
Impossible not to do

Now I tell you openly
You have my heart so don't hurt me
You're what I couldn't find

Totally amazing mind
So understanding and so kind
You're everything to me

All my life
Is changing every day
In every possible way

And oh my dreams
It's never quite as it seems
Cause you're a dream to me

If you, if you could return
Don't let it burn, don't let it fade
I'm sure I might be rude
But it's just your attitude
It's tearing me apart
It's ruining everything
And I swore, I swore I would be true
And honey so did you
So why were you holding her hand
Is that the way we stand
Were you lying all the time
Was it just a game to you

But I'm in so deep
You know I'm such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger
Do you have to, do you have to
Do you have to let it linger

Oh, I thought the world of you
I thought nothing could go wrong
But I was wrong
I was wrong
If you, if you could get by
Trying not to lie
Things wouldn't be so confused
And I wouldn't feel so used
But you always really knew
I just wanna be with you

And I'm in so deep
You know I'm such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger
Do you have to. do you have to
Do you have to let it linger

And I'm in so deep
You know I'm such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger
Do you have to, do you have to

Zombie

composer: Dolores O’Riordan
premiere: The Cranberries
Another head hangs lowly,
Child is slowly taken.
And the violence caused such silence,
Who are we mistaken?

But you see, it's not me, it's not my family.
In your head, in your head they are fighting,
With their tanks and their bombs,
And their bombs and their guns.
In your head, in your head, they are crying...

In your head, in your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie,
ey, ey, ey. What's in your head,
In your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie?
ey, ey, ey, ey, oh, dou, dou, dou, dou, dou...

Another mother's breakin',
Heart is taking over.
When the vi'lence causes silence,
We must be mistaken.

It's the same old theme since nineteen-sixteen.
In your head, in your head they're still fighting,
With their tanks and their bombs,
And their bombs and their guns.
In your head, in your head, they are dying...

In your head, in your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie,
ey, ey, ey. What's in your head,
In your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie?
ey, ey, ey, ey, oh, oh, oh,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, hey, oh, ya, ya-a...
