LYRICS

Alligator:

I am a hangover standing in line.

Just here to collect the smell of cheap wine.

I need some cash, to scratch the belly of an alligator.

Two weeks of feast, two weeks of famine.

 

You want it, you want it to stop,

You beg it, you beg it to halt.

Just swipe it, wipe it clear.

 

And Iím so tired of walking around forever,

And Iím so tired of falling down,

And Iím so tired of stumbling around forever,

Of breaking everything.

Iím breaking everything.

 

I am a laundrette caught on a spin,

You wear a suit, a state of divine,

You need their cash to touch the hand of an orchestrator.

Beg borrow and steal, take pounds of flesh.

 

Envy:

 You see a waterfall,

Go find the source,

If you find nothing at all,

Tell me whereíd you look?

 

Canít seem to get what you want,

I never seem to get what you want.

 

Is this the end or beginning?

Tell me who is winning?

Is this the end or is this envy?

 

Bet on a three-legged horse,

Ask me now for remorse.

Always betting on a winner,

But whoís to know?

 

Canít seem to get what you want,

I never seem to get what you want.

 

Is this the end or beginning?

Tell me who is winning?

Is this the end or is this envy?

 

Ladybug:  

Ladybug, why do you not see me?

Kyoto rising, swaying in the breeze.

Ladybug, do as your daddy says,

I stole a ĎWí just so youíd see red.

 

I wonder what it feels like,

Being on the West side,

Holding the key.

I wonder what it feels like,

Showing me your best side,

Still I canít see.

 

How does it feel, to be riding so high?

What will you say, when so many ask you why?

What will you do, when weíre pulling out the rug?

You donít have long, to live, Ladybug.

 

Slip, slide away.

You slip slide away.

 

Ladybug you got me on my knees.

Kyoto rising, swaying in the breeze.

When you find out who it is knows best,

Tell me will you play it like the rest?

 

I wonder what it feels like,

Getting on your push bike,

Youíre number one.

And I wonder what it feels like,

Heading in a straight line,

Up to the sun.

 

How does it feel, to be riding so high?

What will you say, when so many ask you why?

What will you do, when weíre pulling out the rug?

You donít have long, to live.

 

Something has got to give,

Somethingís got to give.

 

How does it feel, to be riding so high?

What will you say, when so many ask you why?

What will you do, when weíre pulling out the rug?

You donít have long, to live, Ladybug.

 

Monday to Friday:

I see you, an elegant sir,

I want to be you, in a nice white shirt.

You look so cool,

In your £80 suite.

 

Got your own desk,

And your personalised email address.

Thursday/Friday for drinking,

Sunday is for sinking.

 

I got, I got, I got,

A job in the city.

But do I, do I, do I,

Want to fit in?

I got, I got, I got,

A job in the city.

My tie is my noose,

It seems it really fits me.

 

You clock in,

In your nice white shirt.

Work over, digging corporate dirt.

Lifeís so cruel as it passes by you.

 

Cos youíve got your own desk,

And your personalised email address.

Thursday/Friday for drinking,

Sunday is for sinking.

 

I got, I got, I got,

A job in the city.

But do I, do I, do I,

Want to fit in?

I got, I got, I got,

A job in the city.

My tie is my noose,

It seems it really fits me.

 

Monday to Friday,

Monday to Friday,

Itís the same.

 

One Step Down:

Call you up when I hear,

You couldnít scream no more.

Run the mile, make the step,

Thatís all it takes to start.

 

But why should you care?

 

Start laughing at the people,

And the voices in your head,

Start laughing at the pain,

Cos the pain wonít last.

 

Itís one step down,

Just one step down,

This one step downís,

Just one step down.

 

Take the chance,

Run the race,

The end cannot be that far.

Life wonít wait,

Follow your heart,

You can be great again.

 

But why should you care?

 

Start laughing at the people,

And the voices in your head,

Start laughing at the pain,

Cos the pain wonít last.

 

Push Away:

If I was a man Iíd walk much taller than I can.

If I had a plan to make you stay by my side.

If I had more time, Iíd take your dreams and make them mine.

 

Nothing ever goes the way I plan,

To have you near,

Hold you through your fear,

Heaven sent you here,

But I still push away.

 

Touch to a touch,

A lip to a lip.

Pain to our pleasure,

Love that cannot be measured.

If I had more time, Iíd tell you all thatís on my mind.

 

Nothing ever goes the way I plan,

To have you near,

Hold you through your fear,

Heaven sent you here,

But I just push away.

 

I want to stay,

I want to stay.
