Same Shit, Different Title

In the middle of amazing You shove your love into my face I wrestle it down to the ground And then smack it around the place In the middle of a tightrope I can see it with your eyes You’re sitting there with your highbrow hair And then sharpening your knives This is all out warfare I got nothing left to lose This is all out warfare Until there’s no one left to shoot In the middle of a Tesco Like a two-bit Britney Spears You spin around without a sound And then kick me in the queers This is all out warfare I got nothing left to lose This is all out warfare Until there’s no one left to shoot This is all out warfare All out war

I’ve got some memories Some memories of days And some of those memories Are losing their shape Like people and places Reminders with holes A shoe without laces is no shoe at all It seems such a shame When the whole thing fades away Don’t leave your brain in the sun I mix up the meanings Make it up as I go Forgetting the endings Without letting it show I can fix it with fiction Extract all the facts My crippled descriptions All wonky and scratched It seems such a shame When the whole thing fades away Don’t leave your brain in the sun In the sun In the sun

I’m never going to make you cry I’m never going to make you try I’m never going to feed you lies I’m never going to wet your eyes I’m never going to let you down I’m never going to make you frown I’ll burn this city to the ground And turn it around Turn it around You’ll never be on your own You’ll always have a place called home I’m never going to let you sink I’m never going to leave you alone I’m never going to let you down I’m never going to make you frown I’ll burn this city to the ground And turn it around Turn it around I’m never going to let you down I’m never going to make you frown I’ll burn this city to the ground And turn it around Turn it around I’m never going to make you cry I’m never going to wet your eyes I’m never going to let you down I’m never going to make you frown Turn it around Turn it around

Don’t stand too close to the fire Don’t stand too close to the fire You might go up and expire Don’t stand too close to the fire There’s a danger in my heart It’s working down to my toes There’s a danger in the dark There’s a danger I might explode I need to warm me up I need to get out of town I’m doing the best that I can But my can is wearing out Don’t stand too close to the fire Don’t stand too close to the fire You might go up and expire Don’t stand too close to the fire There’s a danger in my heart It’s working down to my toes How do you turn it off? When will it grow cold? I got to go to work in the morning I got to stop the fuss and be on my way Working for the money’s not as fun as they say Don’t stand too close to the fire Don’t stand too close to the fire You might go up and expire Don’t stand too close to the fire

Open your ears and open your eyes I’m ready to speak Open your windows and look at the sky I’m ready to peek I've got a fever like an atom bomb I feel like a monster made of hydrogen Cross all your fingers and cover your toes I’m going to explode I am burning brighter than the sun I am burning brighter than the sun Take all your chances or take me to yours We could be friends Let’s have a sandwich and let’s share a straw Friends ‘till the end You’ve got a face that I’ve been looking at There’s something about you in that bobbly hat But first I must warn you I might melt your heart I’m ready to start I am burning brighter than the sun I am burning brighter than the sun I am burning brighter than the sun I am burning brighter than the sun Bright white light like the sun Bright white light like the sun Open your ears and open your eyes Kung fu my voodoo with lightsaber strikes Stronger than the mighty Megatron Winning every other marathon Wrestle the bestest out of the ring I’m going to begin I am burning brighter than the sun I am burning brighter than the sun I am burning brighter than the sun I am burning brighter than the sun

Hold your horses Your horses you must hold Hold your horses Your horses you must hold Hold your horses Hold your horses This horse is on hold Stop it do not rush it Pressure will just crush it You might fluff it You have got to hug it So don’t bug it You have got to love it So don’t rub it and keep those hands right off it Hold your horses Your horses you must hold Hold your horses Your horses you must hold Hold your horses Hold your horses This horse is on hold Cool it do not move it If you want to use it You’ve got to prove it You may just go lose it Stop before you drop it You might bodge it So don’t fudge it You’ve got to rough and tough it Hold your horses Your horses you must hold Hold your horses Your horses you must hold Hold your horses Hold your horses This horse is on hold
