Th Eraser Lyrics

Recommended Posts

those are actually very inacurate. these are better:

eraser

 

please excuse me but I've got to ask

are you only being nice

because you want something?

my fairytale i represent (or 'my fairytale i wrote descends')

be careful how you respond

as you might end up in this song

i never gave you an encouragement

and it's doing me in x5

 

the more you try to erase me

the more the more the more that I appear

the more the more the more

the more you try the eraser

the more the more the more that you appear

 

you know the answers

so why do you ask?

i am only being nice

because I want someone, something

you're like a kitten with a ball of wool

and it's doing me in x5

 

the more you try to erase me

the more the more the more that i appear

oh the more the more

the more i try to erase you

the more the more the more that you appear

 

no, you're wrong, you're wrong, you're wrong

 

analyse

 

a self-fulfilling prophecy of endless possibilty

your warning rings across the street

in algebra, in algebra

 

the fences that you cannot climb

the sentences that do not rhyme

in all that you can ever change

the one you're looking for

it gets you down x2

 

there's no spark

no light in the dark

it gets you down x2

you travel far

what have you found?

that there's no time

there's no time

to analyse

to think things through

to make sense

 

like candles in the city

you'll never look so pretty

while powercuts and blackouts

sleeping like babies

it gets you down x2

you're just playing a part x2

you're playing a part x2

 

oh there's no time

there's no time

to analyse

analyze x3

 

the clock

 

time is running out

for us

but you just move the hands upon the clock

 

you throw coins in the wishing well

with gold

you just move your hands upon the clock

 

it comes to you begging you to stop

wake up

and you just move your hands upon the clock

throw coins in wishing wells

for us

you make believe that you are still in charge

 

black swan

 

what will grow crooked you can't make straight

it's the price that you've gotta pay

do yourself a favour and pack you bags

buy a ticket and get on the train x2

 

'cause this is fucked up, fucked up x2

 

people get crushed like biscuit crumbs

and laid down in the bitumen

you have tried your best to please everyone

but it just isn't happening

no, it just isn't happening

 

and that is fucked up, fucked up

well this is fucked up, fucked up

 

this your blind spot, blind spot

it should be obvious, but it's not

but it isn't, but it isn't

 

you cannot kickstart a dead horse

you just crush yourself and walk away

i don't care what the future holds

'cause i'm right here and i'm today

with your fingers you can touch me

 

i am your black swan, black swan

but i made it to the top (this is repeated in background throughout this)

and this is fucked up, fucked up

be a black swan, black swan

and for spare parts

we're broken up

 

you are fucked up

fucked up

this is fucked up

fucked up

we are black swans

black swans

and for spare parts

we're broken up

 

skip divided

 

i'm in a skip divided malfunction

i flap around and dive bomb

frantically around your light

enveloped in a sad distraction

i got your voice repeating endlessly

could you guide me in?

could you smother me?

 

i swoop around your head

but i never hit

i'm blinded by your daylight

electric veins pass through me

i thought there was this big connection

i only got my name i only got this situation

i just need a number and location

without appropriate papers or permissions

i'm known to like tight situations

and i head into your french windows

i thought there was this big connection

i only got my name i only got my situation

i just need my number and location

 

and my mum keeps telling me

hey hey hey hey hey hey

the devil may

hey hey hey hey hey hey

you are a fool x2

for sticking round x2

yeah you are a fool you are a fool

for sticking round x2

i've done every trick in the book

i tried to look at you

every trick in the book

but how come i look?

 

no more common dress or elliptical caress

don't look into your eyes cause i'm desperately in love

in love x2

when you walk in the room everything disappears

when you walk in a room it's a terrible mess

when you walk in a room i start to melt

when you walk in a room i follow you round

like a dog, i'm a dog, i'm a dog, i'm a lapdog

i'm your lapdog, yeah

i just got a number and location

i just need my number and location

 

atoms for peace

 

no more going to the dark side with your flying saucer eyes

no more falling down a wormhole that I have to pull you out

the wriggling squiggling worm inside

devours from the inside out

no more talk about the old days

it's time for something great

want you to get out and make it work

 

so many allies

so feel the love come off of them

and take me in your arms

peel all of your layers off

i want to eat your artichoke heart

no more leaky holes in your brain

and no false starts

i wanna get out and make it work

 

and it rained all night

 

and it rained all night and washed the filth away

down new york airconditioned drains,

the click click clack of the heavy black trains,

a million engines in neutral.

the tick tock tick of a ticking time bomb

50 ft of concrete underground,

one little leak becomes a lake says the

tiny voice in my ear piece.

so i give in to the rhythm, the click click clack.

im too wasted to fight back

tick tock goes the pendulum on the old grandfather clock

 

and it rained all night and then all day,

the drops were the size of your hands and face,

the worms come out to see whats up.

we pull the car up from the river.

its relentless

invisible

indefatigable

indisputable

undeniable

so how come it looks so beautiful?

how come the moon falls from the sky?

 

harrowdown hill

 

don’t walk the plank like i did

you will be dispensed with

when you’ve become inconvenient

 

up on high and down hill

down where you used to go to school

that’s where i am

that’s where i'm lying now

 

did i fall or was i pushed x2

and where’s the blood? x2

 

and im coming home

i’m coming home

to make it alright

so dry your eyes

 

we think the same things at the same time

we just can’t do anything about it…

 

we think the same things

at the same time

we just can’t do anything about it…

 

so don’t ask me, ask the ministry

so don’t ask me, ask the ministry

 

we think the same things

there are so many of us

Oh you can’t count

 

we think the same things at the same time

there are so many of us

oh you can’t count

 

can you see me when I am running x2

away from there x2

i can’t take the pressure

no one cares if you live or die

they just won’t be gone

they won’t be gone

 

and i'm coming home

i'm coming home

to make it all right

so dry your eyes

we think the same things at the same time

we just can’t do anything about it

 

we think the same things at the same time

there are too many of us so you can’t

there are too many of us so you can’t count

 

it was me walking to the back of harrowdown hill

it was a slippery slippery slippery slope x2

i felt me slipping in and out of consciousness x2

i feel me

 

cymbal rush

 

try to sing but it doesn't come off the hook

try to build a wall but it's not high enough

 

 

it's all boiling over

all boiling over

 

 

sry to save your house try to sing you songs

try to run but it follows you up the hill

 

 

it's all boiling over

all boiling over

your little voice x2

 

no more conversation

no more conversation

you should have took me out when you had the chance

you should have took me out when you had the chance

i dont want to lose your number

losin' it, turnin' away

don't turn away

don't turn away
