First Day

(feat. Timo Maas)
I see you found my underground
Help yourself to guns and ammo Placebo
Nothing here has ever seen the light of day
I leave it in my head First

It's the first day of the rest of your life Day

You'll remember me
For the rest of your life

Don't fuck it up

 

Five Years

Pushing thru the market square
So many mothers sighing
News had just come over
We had five years left to cry in

News guy wept and told us
He said 'earth was really dying'
Cried so much his face was wet
Then I knew he was not lying

I heard telephones, opera house, favourite melodies
There were boys, toys electric irons and T.V.'s
My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there

And all the fat-skinny people
And all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people
And all the somebody people
Never thought I'd need so many people

A girl my age went off her head
Hit some tiny children
If the black hadn't a-pulled her off
And I think she would have killed them

A soldier with a broken armfixed
His stare to the wheels of a Cadillac
A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest
And a queer threw up at the sight of that

Well, I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour
Drinking milk shakes cold and long
Smiling and waving and looking so fine
Don't think you knew you were in this song

And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor
And I thought of Ma and I wanted to get back there
Your face, your race, the way that you talk
I miss you, you're beautiful

We've got five years, stuck on my eyes
Five years, what a surprise
We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, that's all we've got
We've got
Five years.

 

Flesh Mechanic

He tries to embrace her
She wants him to race her
He needs a laser
To get it through her skull
(Means and lies and hatreds)?
Tears that fall in sequence
Cold caress in Imprints
Conversation growing dull
Says he's a poet
Loudly protoazoan
And he kisses ass for free
I took a vow of silence
When he tries to talk to me
I just turn on the tv.

He tries to impress her
Mentally undress her
It takes more to possess her
But in his pocket lies a hole
He's got a thousand talents
Charisma by the bagfull
Aristocratic parents
A rebel with a heart of gold.

Says he's a poet
This time he's gonna blow it
'Cause he's dancing with his... ego
I took a vow of silence
When he reads his words to me
I swallow words like a... Placebo.

He's strutting with your flesh mechanic
Gets him in a panic
He's wasting time
'Cause everybody is a star... In his eyes.

Careful not to give your favours
To your lonesome fucked-up neighbours
I had one who sent me her heart
In a tupperware container
All the movies in my head
They flicker with my bleeding heart
A careless slipping of the tongue
On just another private part
Blatant search for
Stoned affection
Fights the lust that
Breeds infection
Meet me at the... Intersection
Don't forget your... Fuel injection
He's strutting with your flesh mechanic
Gets him in a panic
He's wasting time
'Cause everybody is a star
In his eyes
You think this love is bona fide
You're being taken for a ride
Wrap your lip around your head
And slowly blow yourself away

 

Follow the Cops Back Home

The call to arms was never true,
Time to imbibe, here's to you,
I'll tell you stories bruised and blue,
Of drum machines and landslides.

Just one more round before we're through,
More psychedelic yuppie flu,
It's such a silly thing to do,
And now we're stuck on rewind..

Let's follow the cops back home,
Follow the cops back home,
Let's follow the cops back home,
And rob their houses.

The call to arms was never true,
Let's take a ride and push it through,
Suspended animation in blue,
And blame it on apartheid,

Let's spend the night in Jimmy choo's,
I'll give you coats and cheap shampoo,
I'll give you nothing else to do,
Now we're stuck on rewind..

Let's follow the cops back home,
Follow the cops back home,
Let's follow the cops back home,
And rob their houses..

Let's follow the cops back home
Follow the cops back home
Let's follow the cops back home
And rob their houses..

[instrumental]

The call to arms was never true,
I'm medicated..how are you?
Let's take a dive swim right through,
Sophisticated points of view.

Let's follow the cops back home
Follow the cops back home
Let's follow the cops back home
And rob their houses..

Let's follow the cops back home
Follow the cops back home
Let's follow the cops back home
And rob their houses..

 

Grave To Soul

I Lost The Space I Would Have To Breath,
I'm out of air and then I start to have,
I'm in my own secluded world of sin,
I must escape the depression that I'm in,
I'm the one they tease, I'm the one they taunt, but when I'm gone, they're the ones I'll haunt,

For an eternity they will feel my pain,
For an eternity, again and again,
They will never do, what they did to me,
And the key to their souls, will belong to me,
My escape is something I may never find,
Cuz they torch the core of my fragile mind,
And the fire spreads through the trench of my soul,

I feel like I don't even have room to breathe,
I'm out of air and then I start to heave,
I'm in my own secluded world of sin,
I must escape the depression that I'm in,
I'm the one they tease, I'm the one they taunt, but when I'm gone, they're the ones I'll haunt,
Now extracting revenge will be my personal goal,
And they ruin me with their words like knives,
But soon I'll torture them and play with their lives,
And for an eternity they will feel ny pain,
For an eternity, again and again,
They will never do, what they did to me,
And the key to their souls will belong to me,

I feel like I don't even have room to breathe,
I'm out of air and then I start to heave,
I'm in my own secluded world of sin,
I must escape the depression that I'm in,
I'm the one they tease, I'm the one they taunt, but when I'm gone, they're the ones I'll haunt,

You go and eat me alive, you tear me apart,
Just wait til I reach inside... and tear out your heart...
For an eternity they will feel my pain,
For an eternity, again and again,
They will never do, what they did to me,
And they key to their souls, it belongs to me

 

Haemoglobin

I was hanging from a tree
Unaccustomed to such violence
Jesus looking down on me
I'm prepared for one big silence

How'd I ever end up here
Must be through some lack of kindness
And it seemed to dawn on me
Haemoglobin is the key

Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heart beat
Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heart beat

At the time they cut me free
I was brimming with defiance
Doctors looking down on me
Breaking every law of science
How'd I ever end up here?
A latent strain of color blindness
Then it seemed to dawn on me
Haemoglobin is the key

Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heart beat x4

Now my feet don't touch the ground
Now my feet don't touch the ground
Now my feet don't touch the ground
Now my feet don't touch the ground

As they drag me to my feet
I was filled with incoherence
Theories of conspiracy
The whole world wants my disappearance
I'll go fighting nail and teeth
You've never seen such perseverance
Gonna make you scared of me
Cause haemoglobin is the key

Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heart beat x4

Now my feet don't touch the ground X8

 

Hang on To Your Iq

Chinese masseuse, comes between us
Talks in haikus, plastic venus.
Got a headrush, in her pocket
Two rubbers two lubes, and a silver rocket

Hang on, hang on
To your iq, to your I'd
Hang on, hang on
To your iq, to your I'd

I'm lonely

Every morning, my eyes will open wide
I gotta get high, before I go outside.
Roll another, for breakfast
Burning clouds around, and in my solar plexus.

Hang on, hang on
To your iq, to your I'd
Hang on, hang on
To your iq, to your I'd

I'm lonely

Legs eleven, makes me stay up late
Two fat ladies on my back, and now it's eighty eight.
I'm a fool, whose tool is small
It's so miniscule, it's no tool at all.

Hang on, hang on
To your iq, to your I'd
Hang on, hang on
I'm lonely

Oh.

 

Happy You're Gone

Breathe me
Everytime you close your eyes
Taste me
Every time you cry
This memory will fade away and die
Just for today
Breathe me and say goodbye

[Chorus]
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
Now I can't look you in the eye
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye

See me
In the eyes of mother's child
Turn away
When you see me walkin' by
Once in a while
This melody will fade away and die
Just for today
Breathe me and say goodbye

[Chorus]
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
Now I can't look you in the eye
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye

I don't even want to try

[Chorus]
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye
How many times?
How many times?
Now I can't look you in the eye

 

Holocaust

Your eyes are almost dead
Can't get out of bed
And you can't sleep

You're sitting down to dress
And you're a mess
You look in the mirror

You look in your eyes
Then you realize

Everybody goes
Leaving those
Who fall behind

Everybody goes
As far as they can
They don't just care
They stood on the stairs
Laughing at your airs

Your mother's dead
She said
"Don't be afraid"

Your mother's dead
You're on your own
She's in her bed

Everybody goes
Leaving those
Who fall behind

Everybody goes
As far as they can
They don't just care

You're a wasted face
You're a sad-eyed lie
You're a holocaust

 

I Do

I wanna be much more like you
Your effortlessly graceful scene
That drips from every pore of you
Where logic cannot intervene
I wanna take a bath with you
And wash the chaos from my skin
I wanna fall in love with you
So how do we begin?

I wanna be a girl like you
The way you swing your hips in jeans
I wanna wear my face like you
Shisseido MAC and Maybelline
I wanna paint the town with you
And tickle you until you scream
I wanna fall in love with you

I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do

I wanna be much more like you
The way your smile lights up the room
I'll kick back this and flirt with you
Till jealously I'll stay in you
This confidence in me and you
This hope that you and I will bloom
I wanna fall in love with you

I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do
I wanna say I do

The question is do you?
