The punishment of luxury
Is in the air for all to see
And it's ugly now
And it's getting worse every day


(Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Dilettantes savoir faire
Can I have my check please, Sir?
'Cause I'm leaving now
Couldn't take it another day
(Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Think you're right? Think you're free?
Floating in your purgatory
But you made your choice
And you're living it every day
(Hey! Hey! Hey!)
Lazy girl, dirty boy
Surrounded by your broken toys
And you don't know how
To make the pain just go away
(Hey! Hey! Hey!)
So close your eyes
And shut your mouth
You make me want
To scream and shout
So close your eyes
And shut your mouth
You make me want
To scream and shout
So close your eyes
And shut your mouth
You make me wanna
Scream and shout
The punishment of luxury
Is in the air for all to see
(Hey! Hey! Hey!)
The punishment of luxury
Is in the air for all to see
(Hey! Hey! Hey!)
The punishment of luxury
Is in the air for all to see
(Hey! Hey! Hey!) (For all to see!)
Punishment of luxury
Is in the air for all to see

As We Open, So We Close lyrics

Have you seen the cold facade
Concrete hands so scaled and scarred
Did you touch this cruel veneer
Born of pain and forged in tears
Veil of sorrow washed away
Bathed in love, I'm new today
Take me to your fragile place
I promise I will show you my real face

As we open, so we close
As we open, so we close
As we open, so we close

As we open… so we close
Close
Close
Close
Close

Ghost Star lyrics
Across the sky and clear away
Reaching out to hold you
Echoes dead across the bay
I wish I could have told you
And sand it blows into my eyes
As love it tries to blind me
Far beyond horizon's fall
The darkness yet to find me

And on that night and in that way
You wove your magic slowly
The broken boy is healed again
I fall into you wholly

Unforgiving and now all alone
Where's the beauty that you bled?
When you've buried all the pain that you have known
I will carry you to bed

Where's the perfect that you used to know?
Where's the rainbow in your head?
When you've cast all your enemies to stone
Who will carry you to bed?

Take the feelings I used to know
Keep them with you in my stead
Someday when all the wild horses have been tamed
You will welcome me to bed

Kiss Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Bang lyrics

Go
Kiss Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang Bang
Mao Tse-tung and Uncle Sam
Sold the world bought the car
This time you've gone too far

Ha, Ha, Ha, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
Love and war, all is fair
Run Run Run, Kick Kick Kick
Everything makes me sick

Tick Tick Tick, Tock Tock Tock
Mr Hyde and Dr Spock
Fuck you and your theory
Nothing you do can get near me

Kiss Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang Bang
Kiss Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang Bang
Kiss Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang Bang
Kiss Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang Bang
Kiss Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang Bang
Kiss Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang Bang
Kiss Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang Bang
Kiss Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang Bang

One More Time lyrics
I didn't think I'd love you like the past
‘Cause everything you gave me didn't last
I never heard a woman calling out my name
With the love and power and the passion that you gave
So hold me in your arms and say you're mine
And you can break my heart just one more time

I couldn't bear to see your face again
It takes me years to overcome the pain
I'm praying to the sky above
Never let me ever fall in love

So hold me in your arms and say you're mine
And you can break my heart just one more time
And hold me in your arms and say you're mine
You can break my heart just one more time

So hold me in your arms and say you're mine
You can break my heart just one more time
Hold me in your arms and say you're mine
You can break my heart just one more time

Precision & Decay lyrics
From Luxury to Landfill
And Precision to Decay
The Highway of Prosperity
To Collapse and Decay
The Ford Rouge plant at Deerborn Michigan
Men and Machine
A Song of Power, Day and Night
There is no such thing as Labour Saving Machinery

Precision & Decay
Precision & Decay
Precision & Decay
Precision & Decay

Robot Man lyrics
Robot Man, Robot Man, Robot Man
Got me running as fast as I can
In the head you're the perfect machine
There's a hole where your heart should have been
Robot Man, Robot Man, Robot Man
Got me running as fast as I can
In the head you're the perfect machine
There's a hole where your heart should have been

Well I used to wish I was enough
‘Cause I gave you love and all of that stuff
But I'm sick and tired of crying
Faking, cheating, lying
Pretending my heart was so tough

Robot Man, Robot Man, Robot Man
Got me running as fast as I can
In the head you're the perfect machine
There's a hole where your heart should have been

And I used to wish that this was the end
‘Cause I couldn't bear to be without friends
But refusing all assistance, keep them at a distance
People only get the message that you send

Robot Man, Robot Man, Robot Man
Got me running as fast as I can
In the head you're the perfect machine
There's a hole where your heart should have been

Robot Man, Robot Man, Robot Man
Got me running as fast as I can
In the head you're the perfect machine
There's a hole where your heart should have been

Robot Man, Robot Man, Robot Man
Got me running as fast as I can
In the head you're the perfect machine
There's a hole where your heart should have been

Been
Been
Been

The View From Here lyrics
Climb the mountain of your fear
You should see the view from here
Walk with me until we're done
Take the long road. don't go home
As the knife goes deeper in
Nothing remains of where it's been
Pull the petals one by one
Finally they're all gone

Sliding backwards down the slope
Clinging desperately too hope
Watching you untie the rope
Cast away, couldn't Cope

Climb the mountain of your fear
You should see the view from here

Climb the mountain of your fear
Easy said and done from here

Everything ever seen, photographs of magazines
Vivid colour, black and white
All reduced to isotype

Everything ever said all the voices Inside your head
Travel at the speed of light
Now compressed in isotype

All words you used to write
Treasure spirits taking fight
Sovereign and I'm shining bright
All replaced by isotype
Every corner open dream
Each precious words perfect team
Suddens chase of endless nights
All reduced to isotype
