"30 Seconds" as written by and Andrew Cairns....
I can feel you breathing
And you're sticking to my skin
Someone shut the morning up
My conscience creeps back in

I don't hear the words you say
When you just come around
I don't hear the words you say
I just see you lie

There's one thing that I should remember
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There's one thing that I should remember
There's a light at the end of the tunnel

Buggered by a priest
When you were seven years of age
The age of understanding
Came with blood and semen stains

[Incomprehensible] in politics
Has handed back yourself
Is there anything as disgraceful I can see again?

There's one thing that I should remember
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There's one thing that I should remember
There is a light at the end of the tunnel

How did we get from the blue lamp disco
To cracking up in San Francisco?
I look at myself in a sober light
I'm not Elvis but I'm alright

I can feel you breathing
When you tear me from within
Unhinged and unraveled
As you rip my fucking skin

I can put my head back on
But it's the wrong way round
Feeling up the ladder
You won't get back down

There's one thing that I should remember
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There's one thing that I should remember
There is a light at the end of the tunnel

There's one thing that I should remember
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There's one thing that I should remember
There is a light at the end of the tunnel

There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There is a light at the end of the tunnel

There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There is a light at the end of the tunnel

There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
...

    General CommentAm I the only one who thinks a few aspects of this may be semi-autobiographical? Particularly the 'How did we get from the blue lamp disco/to cracking up in San Francisco/I look at myself in a sober light/I'm not Elvis but I'm alright' bit. This was written when the group were at the peak of their fame, but also cracking up, and the band were referred to as 'the Evil Elvises' a fair bit...

    General CommentI think the infotainment lad is right...and that is a great line, the whole Andy's/Therapy?'s poetics of that time is stuffed in in...

    I look at myself ina a sober light
    I'm not Elvis but I'm allright
