where are we?
what the hell is going on?
the dust has only just begun to form
crop circles in the carpet
sinking feeling

spin me round again
and rub my eyes
this can’t be happening
when busy streets a mess with people
would stop to hold their heads heavy

hide and seek
trains and sewing machines
all those years
they were here first

oily marks appear on walls
where pleasure moments hung before
the takeover the sweeping insensitivity of this
still life

hide and seek
trains and sewing machines (oh, you won’t catch me around here)
blood and tears (hearts)
they were here first

mmm whatcha say,
mmm that you only meant well?
well of course you did
mmm whatcha say,
mmm that it’s all for the best?
of course it is
mmm whatcha say?
mmm that it’s just what we need
you decided this
whatcha say?

oh, what did she say?

  1. The first time I ever heard this song was after downloading a mashup that put it to the music of U2′s “With Or Without You”. This is the first time I’ve heard it untouched.
