"To Die Like Mouchette" as written by Gareth Davies, Matthew Davies, Ryan Richards, Kris Roberts and Darran Anthony Smith....
Kick start your heart just like an engine
Battered and overused
Are we really ready?
I don't think it's any use

If you think it feels close to you angel
There's nothing left to lose

Please believe in what I have to say
The symptoms that you have are so lost
You're wires are crossed, are you leaving?

Discarded on the floor we feel the pain
Nestled and over joyous
Well, if you tell your truths to me
So sorry to let it go

If you think it feels close to you angel
It's only one excuse

Please believe in what I have to say
The symptoms that you have are so lost
You're wires are crossed, are you leaving?

Well, just leave, we never analyze the way
You didn't like the look of his eyes or of his smile
You have to leave it, we're on our way

Please believe in what I have to say
The symptoms that you have are so lost
You're wires are crossed, are you leaving?

Well, just leave, we never analyze the way
You didn't like the look of his eyes or of his smile
You have to leave it, we're on our way

    General CommentJudging by the title this one's probably about the film 'Mouchette'.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    I guess the lyrics are probably relevant to the movie in some way, they certainly have a tragic sort of feel to them.

    General CommentThis is from an interview with rocksound and matt:

    ---------
    Tell us about the interestingly titled 'To Die Like Mouchette'
    ''Mouchette is a French film from the 60s. I studied film in university before the band kicked off and I've always been interested in different cinema. When we were writing the record, Sky was showing ‘Mouchette’. It’s about a girl who had a lot of family trauma. She has to be the main responsible person in the family and look after her disabled brother, all that burden is thrown on her shoulders. She’s just a girl and she’s forced to grow up right there and then and take on those responsibilities. It ends quite tragically - she gets raped by a screwed up guy and dies accidentally. It’s not a song about that film but it made me think about the way that innocence can be really flipped and taken away quite quickly from people.''

    guess you were right a bit :]

    General CommentThese lyrics are actually missing a verse near the beginning:

    Discarded on the floor
    We feel the pain, nestled and over-shores.
    If you tell your truths to me, so sorry to let it go
    If you think it feels close to you
    Hey angel, it's only one excuse
