THIS HOUSE IS HAUNTED
looks like a ruin, you think nothing's doing
under the arches, something's still moving
we lie together, for ever and ever
the truth be uncovered, no face in the mirror
 
i always said, you should leave them dead
now this house is haunted, i lived in the ruins
 
one day they'll discover, you're still with me my lover
credence is craving, the truth be uncovered

i sent them your letter, that read like a lecture
there on the pages, the laughter, the rages
 
she always said, we'd be better off dead
this house is haunted, the face in the mirror
 
kiss me and shiver, one day they'll discover
you're with me my lover, the truth be uncovered
kiss me and shiver, one day they'll deliver
the news of your heart, so dearly departed
 
i always said, we'd be better off dead
now this house is haunted
 
she always said, i'd be better off dead
this house is haunted
 
this house is haunted
 
CINDERS
burnt my old place down
and sold the cinders to my council town
so rag your hair and paint your face
the money's all been spent
 
and you waited here outside of space
and you came and so I went
and you said that's what life's all about
i knew exactly what you meant
 
DEEP BLUE SEA
glad to see, sad to say
and get my things and get away
i've got a light-beam soul inside my head
so get my gear and knock 'em dead

like the sunshine, and the moon glow
and the light thrown on a deep blue sea
 
came back here, to the state we're in
and fake it fast to see their grin
too slow to lose, too fast to win
i come back here, the state we're in

but you're the sunshine, you're the moon glow
you're the light thrown on a deep blue sea
 
amazed and a mess, is this all for me
you got my gear and got me free
i've seen the lie that strains and never wins
so fade me fast or make me grin

like the sunshine, and the moon glow
and the light thrown on a deep blue sea
we're the sunshine, we're the moon glow
we're the light thrown on a deep blue sea
blue sea
blue sea
blue sea
blue sea
 
blue sea
blue sea
blue sea
blue sea
 
we're the sunshine, we're the moon glow
we're the light thrown on a deep blue sea
 
we're the sunshine, We're the moon glow
we're the light thrown on a deep blue sea
blue sea
blue sea
blue sea
 
BY MYSELF
i've been better by myself
never really needed no one else
all those years I left behind
people who messed up my mind, my mind
i really don't mind
 
i was waiting for someone
to come along and give me, what i wanted
people said i'd gone for good
well how they mis-understood my mind
i really don't mind
 
i'll find another way to pick up my head and say, forget it
I'll find another way to pick up my head and say, forget it
by myself
by myself
by myself
by myself
 
i was dreaming of the past
all the hopes and fears that never lasted
all those fools can go for gold
shut your mouth or save your soul, you don't know
d'you really don't know?
 
i'll find another way to pick up my head and say, forget it
i'll find another way to pick up my head and say, forget it
all by myself
by myself
by myself
by myself
 
FROM YOUR FAVOURITE SKY (JOHN PEEL SESSION)
do you dare,
take a breath?
do you dream of a tragic death?
i know you do
 
d'you possess, s'avoir faire
d'you put cheap bleach on your hair?
you delicate flower
 
and so what is love?
and who am i?
to dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky
 
and so what is love?
and who am i?
to dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky
 
do you dress,
like a dame?
do you burn on a catholic flame?
by the hours, by the hours, by the hours
 
you were born,
forth from joy
and you're every girl and boy
you know you are, you know you are
 
so what is love?
and who am i?
to dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky
 
and so what is love?
and who am i?
to dare to pull the stars from your favourite sky
 
from your favourite sky
 
do you dare,
take a breath?
do you dream of a tragic death?
 
A STRANGE ARRANGEMENT OF COLOUR (LIVE)
a strange arrangement of colour,
you found your feet where you put her
 
i'm after you, you're after me
the things that we say, the things that we see
 
we've got to be good looking
where did you go?
what did you see, when you were there?
what did you leave?
leave?
leave?
leave?
 
the lie that is reflected,
the times that we neglected
 
you're after me, I'm after you,
the things that we say
the things that we do
we've got to be reminded
 
where did you go?
what did you see, when you were there?
what did you leave?
leave?
leave?
leave?
 
times that we reflected
lies that we rejected

i'm after you, you're after me
the things that we say, the things that we see
 
we've got to be good looking
where did you go?
and what did you see, when you were there?
what did you leave?
leave?
leave?
leave?
 
a strange arrangement of colour
 
MONKEYS
you can take a million of the monkeys
put 'em through a hoop
you can make a packet from the racket
boil 'em down for soup
 
i can hear the sound of music
the lingering taste of the jewellery
you're a walk on ghost,
you're a living host of,
all that they want you to be, you to be
 
you can take a million other monkeys
put 'em through a hoop
you can make a packet from the racket
boil 'em down for soup
 
i can hear the sound of make-up
the lingering stench of the jewellery
you're a walk on ghost,
you're a living host of,
all that they want you to be, you to be
 
i can hear the sound of music
the lingering taste of the jewellery
you're a walk on ghost,
you're a living host of,
all that they want you to be, you to be

walk on ghost, living host
walk on ghost, living host
living ghost, walk on host
living ghost, walk on host
 
BIG TEARS
how long have you worn that dress?
the colour shows all the mess
they dont want that kind of thing round here
you've been trying too hard it's clear
you've been dying to dry those big tears
 
you got a head full of library books
your mother had all the looks
but they dont want that kind of thing round here
you've been trying too hard it's clear
you've been dying to dry those big tears
 
d'you know what they all think about you?
do you know how they can't live without you?
 
we've got our heads full of common sense
but thats not much recompence
'cos i dont want that kind of thing round here
we've been trying too hard it's clear
now we're dying to dry those big tears
 
how long have i worn this shirt?
the colours shows all the dirt
they dont want that kind of thing round here
i've been trying too hard it's clear
now we're dying to dry those big tears
big tears
big tears
big tears
