I walked behind you in the crowd But never said your name out loud It's always the same And all the things I never said All the words that got away Accidentally on purpose Out of my brain on the plane The things we say we'll never do again... But this time I mean it! And as the darkness closes in Can't fight the tide from within Give me one more chance And I'll do it all over again Give me one more chance And I'll do it all over again Give me one more chance 2020 worse than feared This is my place when things get weird Been stuck in here for weeks With testcard freaks and modular geeks Give me one more chance And I'll do it all over again Give me one more chance And I'll do it all over again Give me one more chance

Take me to where the music's loud I want to lose it in the crowd This isolation has to end So many broken hearts to mend Kill the lights This city sleeps tonight And it's alright, it's alright Hit the lights This city comes alive And it's alright, it's alright So tired of being within these walls No one around to hear me call Finding my way through all this fear One day it's gonna disappear Kill the lights This city sleeps tonight And it's alright, it's alright Hit the lights This city comes alive And it's alright, it's alright Seems like this world is going wrong The list just goes on and on... Kill the lights This city sleeps tonight And it's alright, it's alright Hit the lights This city comes alive And it's alright, it's alright

Nothing is rose-tinted when I think of you Every colour turns to shade of blue Everybody says I should go with the flow But here I am Drowning in indigo Here I am drowning in indigo Here I am drowning in indigo Only you can pull me from this sea There are no lifeguards watching over me I'm waiting here but you'll never show Still I wait... Drowning in indigo Here I am drowning in indigo Here I am drowning in indigo Here I am drowning in indigo Here I am.

Bring back the days when it was easier to light up the room When did this world become so dimly lit? There's nothing coming around here But the same old broken record shit Creatures in the corridor trying to undermine the fabric Do you know anything about the dangers in this house? Who popped the cable, popped the cable on the slit? There's nothing coming around here But the same old broken record shit I struck a pose hoping you'd see something that you won't forget You flew right past me being trailled by a long thin cigarette You got what I got but I want all the rest of it There's nothing coming around here But the same old broken record My future rests on the head that is spinning around You should have lied and said I haven't changed a bit Instead of coming around here With the same old broken record shit Theodore observe and learn something here You picked yourself a real bizarre guardian angel And now he's coming around here With the same old broken record

V1 Looking back I thought you had it all But no one's here to catch me from the fall So many times I've tried to look ahead But I turn around to look instead. V2 Now I see right through this big grey wall I'm running backwards looking through it all So many thoughts are playing in my mind I think it's time to take a look inside.

Automation 04:32
Do you have problems following instructions To the letter? Do you think all this automation Will make your life better? I need to be like a machine Turn me off before I get too keen Like a machine Turn me on/turn me off So you got the sack For breaking down/for getting sick Replaced you with a chip Although it's cruel The robot with your job Is shiny & it's cool (10 million followers already...) Now you work for food Sleep in your car Welcome to the scrapheap When you used to be a star I need to be like a machine Turn me off before I get too keen Like a machine Turn me on/turn me off Used to drive a taxi Used to fly a plane Used to work a checkout Used to have a name Used to have a contract Working zero hours Bright shiny future Where are you now? Because it's true This can happen to you What will you do When this happens to you?

There goes my fist again Through another small window pane There's something gnawing in my brain There goes my fist again Through another small window pane A weather warning from a friend today A tidal wave is heading my way She said finally I'll be getting the drift Out in the mid-Atlantic Neptune struggles to find his way Surrendering to the latest wave he says: "I suppose we'll all be washed up some place, some day" There goes my fist again Through another small window pane There's something gnawing in my brain There goes my fist again Through another small window pane
