"Battle In Me" as written by Shirley Ann Manson, Bryan David Vig, Douglas Elwin Erickson and Steve W Marker....
I look at you
And that's a dancer drinking
What a mess
A drink record lipstick
You've made a joke
Do you hear me laughing?
Get out my face
Before I loose my patience

Oh me and you
Let's cut the story
And when I'm gone
It takes a lot to shake me
So shake it,
It's the battle in me

It's the battle in you
It's a battle in me

It's a bloody war
Of patricians
Let's see which one of us
Is gonna least the ?

Cause I hear voices of my witch
Surround me
And I'll be down
If I'm done
Why ride the place?
Why ride the ? stop spinning
?
I want something to happen
So make it happen

It's the battle in you
It's a battle in me

Let's take a torch
Through the past to the future
?
See how it feels
With the passing warning
We'll be down
When we're done

Shake it, shake it
Shake it up

Shake it, shake it
Shake it up

Cause it's the battle in you
It's the battle in me

It's the battle in you
It's a battle in me

Shake it, shake it
Shake it up

Shake it, shake it
Shake it up

    Lyric CorrectionFor reference, until this gets fixed, the correct lyrics for Battle In Me (as best as I can tell) are as follows:

    Look at you
    An accident of drinking
    What a mess
    A train wreck of lipstick
    What a joke
    Well do you hear me laughin'?

    Get out my face
    Before I lose my patience
    Oh me and you
    Let's cut this party
    Little boy
    It takes a lot to shake me (so shake it)

    It's the battle in me
    It's the battle in you
    It's the battle in me
    It's the battle in you

    It's a bloody war
    Of attrition
    Let's see which one of us
    Is gonna last the night
    'Cause I have all
    Of my wits around me
    And I'll be damned
    If I'm done

    Why rob the place?
    Why won't the room stop spinning?
    Oh make it hard
    Want something to happen
    So make it happen

    It's the battle in me
    It's the battle in you
    It's the battle in me
    It's the battle in you

    Let's take a torch
    To the past and the future
    Let's make out
    I won't tell your girlfriend
    See how it feels
    With the passion burning
    We'll be damned
    When we're done.

    Shake it, shake it
    Oh shake it up
    Shake it, shake it
    Oh shake it up
    Shake it, shake it
    Oh shake it up
    Shake it, shake it

    'Cause it's the battle in you (it's the battle in me)
    'Cause it's the battle in you (it's the battle in me)

    Oh shake it, shake it
    Shake it up
    Shake it, shake it
    Shake it up
    Shake it, shake it
    Shake it up
    Shake it, shake it
    Shake it off

    Lyric Correctiongenerally correct in the above post, but for the following stanza:

    'Why rob the place?
    Why won't the room stop spinning?'

    which should actually read:

    'White rabbit plays
    Right when the room starts spinning'
