"Residue" as written by David Gibbs, Steve Hurley, Frederic James Eltringham and Jonathan W. Skibic....
(One, two, one two three four)

Residue
Tell me what can I do
To get the trace of you
Off of me?

Oh, residue
On the tip of my tongue
And filling up my lungs
Where I breathe

Oh, oh
I wish that I could face all the flavors I still taste
I wish that I could peel off all the layers that I feel
Of residue
Ooh

Residue
On the small of my back
And making me go slack
When I'm brave

Oh, residue
Like a rash on my skin
And dripping down my chin
When I shave

Oh, oh
I wish that I could face all the flavors I still taste
I wish that I could peel off all the layers that I feel
Of residue

Hiding underneath my nails
And puncturing my stiff starched sails
Wash and dry, iron and fold
It's starting to get kind of old
It's starting to make me feel old
Oh

Residue
On the edge of the bed
And propping up my head
So I can't sleep

Oh, residue
In the corners and seams
And dancing in my dreams
Midnight's deep

Oh, oh
I wish that I could face all the flavors I still taste
I wish that I could peel off all the layers that I feel
Of residue
Residue
Residue
Ooh
