He grows out his stubble just so that he can
Scratch at the sunburn that coloured my arm.
Civilians read bibles behind glass windows.
Is this what constitutes normal behaviour?

Got soul! Got vision! Got mind to leave here.
You soon made an enemy of me.
I Warned you: don't make an enemy of me.

I'll take your heart with such little commotion,
By crippling disease or with deadly love potion.
I'll bind you and gag you and all's well that ends, I suppose.

Got a call, are we not interesting?
Fair to say we are not interesting at all.
Broke down laughing and screaming for more,
But if this changed your life, did you have one before?

And what have we got that is of any use?
Allegiance to team that we cannot pronounce.
Image seared, dermis spread across tiled floor.
A taste on the tongue that you and me both abhor.

Got soul! Got vision! Got mind to leave here.
You soon made an enemy of me.
I Warned you: don't make an enemy of me.

I'll take your heart with such little commotion,
By crippling disease or with deadly love potion.
I'll bind you and gag you and all's well that ends, I suppose.

Got a call, are we not interesting?
Fair to say we are not interesting at all.
Broke down laughing and screaming for more,
But if this changed your life, did you have one before?

    Song MeaningI don't think it's the full picture but Gareth states in Heat Rash:

    "I took a taxi in White Plains, New York and the driver had his young daughter sat in the passenger seat, they were reading to eachother.It was adorable. Insulting others' sexual prowess, longing for football ueber alles. Ventolin acquired from a bent chemist/fan of the band, in order to stop me chocking on dust in the Californian desert."
