"Plastic Hearts" as written by Gary Powell, Anthony Rossomando, Carl Barat and David Hammond....
You sauntered off and you said how’s tricks
You can’t mix drugs with your politics
So we took and talked and lost the plot
And after that everything seemed fine
And as it stings and beautiful collide
We watch each others worlds ride under the tide
With intoxicating hands
Cold cold hearts
And well laid plans

Are you listening
Are you listening
As the days
Like the waves
Pile up behind you

La la la la la
You keep it all
Melt my plastic heart
And help me move on
I’m moving on

How do you escape
The great pails of pouring rain
Go to an island or a house in Spain oh
La la la la la la oh
Oh how we’d kill to go
Erect the gutters and move us in
Life or buildings and medicines
We all make the same mistakes
Our pitfalls pull us together

Are you listening
Are you listening
As the days
Like the waves
Pile up behind you

La la la la la
They keep it all
Melt my plastic heart
And help me move on
Ohh

???

La la la la la
You keep it all
Melt my plastic heart
And help me move on
La la la la la
Keep it on

Friends for life and acquaintances
Romance and great distances
There’s been so many casualties
But I cannot run out over these
Oh no

    General Commentim pretty sure it says:
    "in this distinct and beautiful collide,
    we drag each others worlds down under the tides,
    with intoxicated hands,
    cold cold hearts and well laid plans"

    also:

    "la la la la la,
    keep it on"
    instead of "they keep it all"

    "why can't i move on"
    not "im moving on"

    "go to a foreign island or a house in spain,
    going la de da de da de oh,
    oh how i'd kill to go"

    "erect the gunners and rivets in"

    and then the ??? bit you put is:
    "kick this round my bedroom floor,
    hate the daylight hours which you wont ignore,
    but the tide, the tide has drifted away"

    and finally:
    "theres friends for life and accquaintances,
    there's romance from great distances,
    there's been so many casualties,
    but i cannot wallow over these, oh no"
