"Standing on Your Head" as written by and John Squire....
He's falling down a staircase, he don't know just how to stop
He's forty flights from bottom and sixty from the top
He's a man on a mission as brave as he's sane
A lonely life's ambition got a sieve for a brain

You won't miss your water 'til your well runs dry
You can't taste the truth when you're drinking a lie
It's a long hard road but we've got to make it through
So tell me, tell me, tell me what in the world, are we gonna do?

So don't dig yourself any deeper
The only color that I see is red
My life will be so much sweeter
When I'm standing, tall on your head

And when you reach the bottom when you hit my killing floor
I'll be there to greet you and show you to the door
It's a bright sunny day, not a cloud in the sky
So say your prayers one last time 'cause today's the day you die

So don't dig yourself any deeper
The only color that I see is red
My life will be so much sweeter
When I'm standing, tall on your head

You should be better off dead
My life will be so much sweeter
When I'm standing, tall on your head
You gonna say now and don't let me down
No, I'll never forget now, you put me down

You can run like a cheetah
Oh, I'll still catch you
You can tear me to pieces
Do anything you want to do
