"Suffocate" as written by Grant Nicholas, Taka Hirose and Jon Lee....
Show it to me one way
I've got to see it all
Scientific radar
Reaching through the storm
There's got to be hope
As people move on
We've got to keep on believing

It's time to give it everything
A world unite let us in
Hear me cry
Suffocate, let them die
A better life, say goodbye, hear me cry

I see everything silver and gold
Way up I'm reaching out
Clouds white as snow
There's got to be hope
As people move on
We've got to keep on believing

It's time to give it everything
A world unite let us in
Hear me cry
Suffocate, let them die
A better life, say goodbye, hear me cry

Hear me cry
Why don't you hear me
Why don't they hear me
Suffocate
Let them die
A better life to say goodbye
Give, give enough I care

    General CommentI think thats the version off the first pressing of Polythene. Thats weird though cause I'm listening to that exact version now.

    General CommentI think the newer version was re-released prior to the release of YWTS. It can be found on the singles compilation.

    General CommentThe original polythene pressing version is a classic down-tempo, 3-piece song, but lacks the grunginess of the rest of the tracks on that album.

    The new version has a decidedly "sythetic" sound to it. Much more slickly (and heavily) produced.

    TBH, the new version is mountains better. This was my least favorite track off Polythene when I first heard the record (yes, I liked it even less than Tangerine). Now, it's way up the list.
