If all I am is flesh and blood, I might as well be dog food
And if all it was, was just a test I think I passed
Cos I'll wear the clothes, I'll eat the food, I'll whisper the words but it's not true
Cos I'm alight I don't know why
I'm just so glad I found you

Far away
I'll make sure you remember
Far away
I'll make you all remember
Me!

Might just of been fools
I'm way too wasted
I'm creeping so close
I can almost touch it

I want your way
You cannot leave me
You have got to stay
Stay

I want a roof that's see through
They said survive and I will
And if you move I'll shoot you
So stay completely still

Your mind is dead
With these old ideas
Your mouth is shut

And I don't want space
Cos space is so cold

Far away
I'll make sure you remember
Far away
I'll make you all remember

Far away
Far away
Far away
Far away
Far away
Far away

    General CommentI like this band alot, even though I don't think they have that much to offer in terms of originality, there's something about this song that moves me.

    General Commentas far as i know, they've not played brighton, which is basically cheaper for me to travel to instead of london so i've missed out on seeing them. i did an interview with them via email for my site...
