It is __
Take control

All that was need, seething, teething
Take one more

It is growing

We were searching for a truth that was there all along
Little snarling little creeps will be the words to this song
That righteous indignation dollar turning you on,
Turn off the television (x2)

All that was need, seething teething
Take one more

He is growing
God looks on
He is growing

God looks on (x2)

What a way to go
I’m still running for a bus that we missed years ago
A perfect antidote
More connections made
It’s inevitable

He was reaching out to touch me (x2)
He was

He was reaching out to touch me (x2)
He was reaching

It’s like joking, joking, choking

...
And never changing colour
You went a mile

Still invincible
And screaming out to the world
That you're wrong
You're so wrong

And I was reaching out to touch him (x2)
I was

And I was reaching out to touch him (x2)
I was reaching

It’s like joking, joking, choking

Is this not what you expected? (x4)
Now (x4)

    General Commentreal lyrics:

    billy's worries take control all at once
    needing seething teething take one more
    he is growing and we were searching for a truth
    that was there all along
    all those knowing little seeds would be the words to this song
    that righteous indignation dollar turning you on
    turn off the television
    turn off the television
    all at once
    needing seething teething
    take one more
    he is growing as god looks on
    he is growing god looks on
    god looks on
    what a way to go
    i'm still running for that bus that we missed years ago
    a perfect antidote more connections made it's inevitable
    that he was reaching out to touch me
    he was reaching out to touch me he was
    he was reaching out to touch me
    he was reaching out to touch me
    he was reaching out
    he's not joking joking joking
    indelible an ever-changing colour
    you winner man
    he's invincible and screaming at the world
    that you're wrong
    you're so wrong
    and i was reaching out to touch him
    i was reaching out to touch him i was
    i was reaching out to touch him
    i was reaching out to touch him i was
    i'm not joking joking joking
    is this not what you expected

    General CommentI believe this is about the death of Bill Hicks. 'billy's worries' 'righteous indignation dollar' 'turn off the television' 'he is growing, god looks on'... plus the band are all fans of his... seems obvious to me.

    General CommentThis is one of the more depressing tunes I've heard. The music is beyond merely sorrowful; it's haunting, desparate, and surreal. Love the phrase "still running for a bus that we missed years ago."

    General Commentmassive bereavement.. separating us from our home. the world's disconnection from everything we're searching for. it's right in front of us, yet we keep doubting it. but as more and more of us come to realizations of truth, god's energy is coming back.

    General CommentThe lines "He was reaching out to touch me" and "I was reaching out to touch him" makes me think of Michaelangelo's painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. This song makes me think of God creating Adam, sending him to live on earth and then Adam finds that his paradise isn't so perfect after all, of course after sin was committed. Just my take on it though. I'm just getting familiar with this song and it's my initial interpretation. I kinda expect it to change soon though.

    General Commentit may be a coincidence but 'massive bereavement' is the name of one of the horses that Alan Partridge comments on in episode 2 of The Day Today.
