      Album: Wincing The Night Away

      Lalalala
      Lalalala
      
      (Born to) Born to multiply,
      Born to gaze into night skies,
      When all you want’s one more Saturday.
      Well look here, until then
      They're gonna buy your life’s time
      So keep your wick in the air and your feet in the fetters
      ‘Till the day
      We come in doing cartwheels
      We all crawl out by ourselves
      And your shape on the dance floor
      Will have me thinking such filth and gouge my eyes.
      
      You be damned to be one of us, girl,
      Faced with the dodo’s conundrum
      I felt like I could just fly
      But nothing happened every time I tried.
      
      A dual tone on the wall
      The selfless fool who hoped he’d save us all
      never dreamt of such sterile hands.
      You keep them folded in your lap,
      Or raise them up to beg for scraps,
      You know he's holding you down
      With the tips of his fingers just the same.
      Will you be pulled from the ocean,
      But just a minute too late,
      Or changed by a potion,
      And find a handsome young mate
      For you to love.
      
      You'll be damned to pining through the windowpanes,
      You know you'd trade your life for any ordinary Joe’s,
      Well do it now or grow old.
      Your nightmares only need a year or two to unfold.
      
      Been alone since you were twenty-one,
      You haven't laughed since January.
      You try and make like this is so much fun,
      But we know it to be quite contrary.
      
      La la la la la la
      
      Dare to be one of us, girl,
      Facing the android's conundrum,
      I felt like I should just cry,
      But nothing happens every time I take one on the chin,
      You himmler and your coat,
      You don't know how long I've been,
      Watching the lantern dim,
      Starved of oxygen,
      So give me your hand,
      And let's jump out the window.
