"Yes Please" as written by and Matthew James Bellamy....
I cannot sleep
There's too much noise in my head
I cannot sleep
I want it here instead

I never thought that this could come to this
I just want to look at your face in peace now
You'll never miss
But I can

I cannot keep
The shame that's clawed us out
I will not keep
Your shut-up, shut-up lies

I never thought that this could come to this
I just want to live in bliss, in peace now
You will never miss
But I can

    General CommentAlot of people get song confused with ashamed, hence why some people think the lyrics are wrong.

    General Commentim not sure on the song meaning (i always listened to in the context of insomnia based on agnosticism, kind like the dyslexic insomniac who would lay awake all not wandering if there's a dog). i do know that thi is "yes, please" as found on hullabalo. do know that there is a file circulating on P2P that is mislabelled as "yes please" but is actually "ashamed".

    General CommentThere’s too much noise in my head!
    I cannot sleep,
    I want it here instead!

    I never thought that this could come to this.
    I just wanna look at your face in peace now.
    You’ll never miss.
    But I can...

    I cannot keep
    The shame that’s clawed us out!
    I will not keep
    Your shut-up, shut-up lies!

    I never thought that this could come to this.
    I just wanna live in bliss, in peace now.
    You will never miss.
    But I can...
