"Melt Into The Walls" as written by and Chris Ryan Greenough William G. L. Keeley....
The night is cold, you lie with ghosts you have let down,
An empty bed betrays you, you lie awake and wonder what went wrong
The lights have died, the love they gave on borrowed time,
And you'll melt into the walls, melt into the walls

Your time has run out, your time has run out,
They lied, they lied baby, and I tried I tried lately

I'll drink you slow, I'll drink you slow but for a price,
Water turns to poison and loving touch gives way to lonely nights
It's a fine white line, it's a fine white line you're stumbling across,
You'll melt into the walls, melt into the walls

Your time has run out, your time has run out,
They lied, they lied baby, and I tried I tried lately

Please don't you ask,
Please don't you ask me how it feels,
For she was the last,
To light up my night and make me sing

Your time has run out, your time has run out,
They lied, they lied baby, and I tried I tried lately

    General Commentfrom muchmusic.com/music/artists/…

    "YEAH. I GUESS THAT SONG IN SPECIFIC WAS ABOUT THE FEELING OF PLAYING SHOWS AND BEING ON A REAL HIGH FROM WHAT PEOPLE-- WHAT PEOPLE COME TO YOUR SHOWS GIVE YOU; WHAT THE MUSIC GIVES YOU; AND THEN WHEN EVERYONE LEAVES, WHEN, YOU KNOW, THE SHOW IS OVER, WHAT THAT FEELS LIKE IF YOU'RE GOING HOME ALONE OR SHIT LIKE THAT. SORRY. EXCUSE ME."

    General CommentMogwai? Which Mogwai song?

    I was going to say that it sounded like a total Radiohead ripoff! That said, its a really amazing song, when you sound like Radiohead, that's likely to happen!
