My heart's lost in the movies
My laughs fit for TV
My thoughts are radio friendly
What've you done to me

I've seen all this before
My head's a civil war
When I'm bored
When I'm bored

But I'll do what I can
There's nothing in my plans
But staying sane
But stay insane

We wrote down our white lies
Until the ink ran dry
Then we quit
Then we quit

Cause stitches in my side
Are coming out tonight
I'm through with this
I'm through with this

My record's never cling
It's what impatience brings
To my plate
To my plate

I was doomed from the start
So when this falls apart
I'm not my end
I'm not my end

Come marching through graveyards
Of modern ???
Values long forgotten

I think we've all lost our minds
I think we've all lost our minds

Alright now

Now that I've been ???
My heads just one big noose
And I'm sick
And I'm sick

But I'll do what I can
There's nothing in my plans
But stay insane

    General CommentMan, this album rules. I like it even more than Ghost. Ben Cooper is one of the best lyricists I've ever encountered. He has such a unique vision. And musically, he's the most interesting guy going right now, in my opinion.

    A few comments:

    -Should be "My record's never clean" not "My records never cling"

    -The "graveyards" part should be "Rummaging through the graveyards / Of modern thought and values long forgotten"

    -"Now that I've been" part is actually "Now that I've paid my dues / My head's just one big bruise"

    -While I hadn't considered the "But staying sane / But stay insane" switch up (you're right, the phrases do sound similar), I don't think that interpretation fits with the theme of the album. It's about keeping it together in the modern age. I believe he just sings "But staying sane" twice the first time as well as once at the end.
