  • [Verse 1]
    Yes, I broke the telescope twice
    Honey, your et cetera blows me and my confetti
    Over a splendid range
    I evolved a century as I read that diary
    The car left the road
    And all I could see was present day
    Without the tattoos or tyres
    A girl is on the cover again
    Turn the channel over, I require every lung
    Measure up a plaster cast 'cause I feel mortal
    Let's make a man
    And let's give him triggers

    [Chorus]
    Oh, you rust the gears with your blood
    Slow release your medicine ball on me
    Less of the priest you wanna be, wanna be
    Throw your body onto the cogs
    Girls Aloud, you're sapping my energy
    Speaking in tongues in enemy territory
    Wreck a piston they can't ignore
    Microsoft, you wanna be my lover
    Terrors and tears, I found me in the gutter
    'Cause this is a rehearsal no more
    Teeth and nails, your little anatomy
    War on the Tyne, you're playing a lottery
    Bodies replete with everything, everything
    All of the prisoners clamouring, clamouring
    I decide there's nothing in my body
    How can I be sure there's nothing in my body?

    [Verse 2]
    I demand a shuffling of cards
    Doctor (In!) and animal (Out!)
    Terrify us with your tales of a tragic loss
    Half an hour later they'll be on my eyeballs telling the time
    And fashioning stretchers asking me
    "Who left all the pyramids on?"
    First the Romans, then all the birds
    Lipstick on your feathers
    Oh, I'm a dinosaur
    Even now I hear them from the engines run like
    Luddites and lambs
    Like luddites and lambs

    [Chorus]
    Oh, you rust the gears with your blood
    Slow release your medicine ball on me
    Less of the priest you wanna be, wanna be
    Throw your body onto the cogs
    Girls Aloud, you're sapping my energy
    Speaking in tongues in enemy territory
    Wreck a piston they can't ignore
    Microsoft, you wanna be my lover
    Terrors and tears, I found me in the gutter
    'Cause this is a rehearsal no more
    Teeth and nails, your little anatomy
    War on the Tyne, you're playing a lottery
    Bodies replete with everything, everything
    All of the prisoners clamouring, clamouring
    I decide there's nothing in my body
    How can I be sure there's nothing in my body?

    [Outro]
    Stone and the soil, you're killing me, killing me
    Steam and the oil, you're telling me, telling me
    Lovers, I know you're out of your element
    Joking aside, I've never been anything
    Faking my death, you're telling me, telling me
    Measure my breath, you're selling me, selling me
    Heal the hull, I want it to be over
    Flashing a bulb, you're gonna hurt somebody
    Oh, you want her for your euphoria
    Bullets and effigies, narrower, narrower
    Money in mouths, you're selling me, selling me
    Heavenly hounds, you're telling me, telling me
    Bodies replete with everything, everything
    Bodies repeat with everything, everything
    I decide there's nothing in my body
    I decide there's nothing in my body
    I decide there's nothing in my body
    How can I be sure there's nothing in my body?
