"A Secret Society" as written by and Ed Harcourt....
I'll teach you how to disappear
I need a willing volunteer
Vanish into thin air, leave your worries on these crowded streets
We're moving far away from here
I don't expect to shed a tear
Like a bull to a red rag
Drag me out of the city that never sleeps
Oh I can't believe I've lasted this long
Breaking bones and wasting songs
A secret society from prying eyes and sly deceits

I've changed my number don't try to call me
I'm ready to escape
I've often wondered if the future's the same as my fate
Let's turn the world on its head
Let's turn the world on its head

But I will not go quietly
I've pledged my part in history
Stick a flag wherever I go and make my mark on the people I meet
There are those who aim to lack their strength
They keep their passion at arm's length
It's such a petty price to pay
When you're wrestling with a losing streak
I've tried to rise above it all
Why bother with a fist in a wall?
And all this searching for my soul
Has drained me to an inch of my defeat

I've changed my number don't try to call me
I'm ready to escape
I've often wondered if the future's the same as my fate
Let's turn the world on its head
Let's turn the world on its head

We're moving far away from here
I don't expect to shed a tear
Like a bull to a red rag
Drag me out of the city that never sleeps
Oh I can't believe I lasted this long
Breaking bones and wasting songs
A secret society from prying eyes and sly deceits

I've changed my number don't try to call me
I'm ready to escape
I've often wondered if the future's the same as my fate
Let's turn the world on its head
Let's turn the world on its head
