"Wife By Two Thousand" as written by Chris Corner, Liam Coverdale-howe, Ian Pickering and Arthur Hamilton....
Never so complete just failing on its feet
Choking out these last few days here
Never ever lied all confidence at all times
Trying hard to love myself
I think that I need some working on so work on me
I think that nothing's getting through so get to me
Just another no show waste of passing go
Christ knows how we get to be here

No one's broken no one's beaten
I can see a rainbow near them
I can see a rainbow

Never so confused just laughed out cost abused
Aiming loosely your direction
Always too extreme all case and cause to plead
Striving hard to spite yourself
I think that I need some working on so work on me
I think that nothing's getting through so get to me
Just another no name taken passing blame
Christ knows how we get to be here

No one's broken no one's beaten
I can see a rainbow near them
I can see a rainbow
I can see a rainbow

Always coming clean all case and cause to bleed
Trying hard to like yourself
Never so complete just failing on its feet
Choking out these last few breaths here
I think that I need some working on so work on me
I think that nothing's getting through so get to me
Just another no show scissors paper stone
Christ knows why we get to be here

No one's broken no one's beaten
I can see a rainbow near them
I can see a rainbow
I can see a rainbow

    General CommentAt the beginning of the song there is a ethereal repeating sounding voice that is hard to decipher. What is she saying? What does it mean? It sounds like Bjork (a favorite).

    It sounds like:

    It seems so long
    I hurt no one
    (repeat)

    There are a few other parts. One part sounds like it's being played in reversed.

    General CommentI think the line "Never so confused just laughed out cost abused" should be "Never so confused just laughed out cussed abused".

    Makes much more sense.

    General CommentLet your girlfriend work on you. Apparently you didn't lie to her about calling and asking her out. ROT.
