[One...two...three]

Declan liked his checks in the Earth
Junk food, wasting the Earth
I got the fear of Gods in somewhere
From where I just don't know

Backlight, dead and then down
A gallery of soulless clowns
I've got myself a habit I'm never gonna kick
And I can see where it's gonna end

When I was young
I was taught a little song
I only ever sing it
When things are going horribly wrong
It goes: Take a tiptop lease from a Jägermeister plant, a baby hyena, and an olive branch,
Stick it all in a fruit blender with some milds and some lovers and a vintage flavor
And just to make sure you never wake up
In twenty-five years in an office job
Other people weep
But if I get a little something I can sleep
Other people weep
But I just need a little something to make me sleep
Other people weep
But if I get a little something I can sleep

She made it perfectly clear
She didn't want me anywhere near
An empty flat with the heating full-up
So why do I feel so cold?

Keep expecting her to walk through the door
The old coat, thrown on the floor
I've lost the only beautiful thing in this world
I think that I might just turn in

When I was young
I was taught a little song
Which I only ever use
When things are going horribly wrong
Give me two soft arms to hold me tight
From the demons that haunt me in the middle of the night
A moon full of grass and a bundle of light
Should help me to see through the dark
It's best to take precautions when you're sleeping alone
'Cause you never ever know how you're gonna get thrown
I've got a sleeping hat, I wear it in bed
I keep it inside my head
Other people weep
But I just need a little something to make me sleep
Other people weep
But if I get a little something I can sleep
