"Karaoke Soul" as written by and Mcrae....
Pull me close look into my eyes
Smile at me when you stick in the knife
We're bleeding into a cup when we've got enough
We'll just paint the walls
And we don't care how much it hurts
You think you're cursed it's what you deserve

'Cause you're talking rock and roll
Walking karaoke soul
I can see you desperate to please
Let me treat you for your disease

Between angels and ropes babe what would you chose?
As you kick the dust from your perfect shoes
Your wolf suit is wearing thin and your real skin looks like it never bleeds
And you're playing to the crowd as the ship goes down comforting me

'Cause you're talking rock and roll
Walking karaoke soul
If you see me falling sleep
Please don't wake me from this dream

Yeah you're talking rock and roll
Walking karaoke soul
If you see me falling sleep
Please don't wake me from this dream

Yeah you're talking rock and roll
Walking karaoke soul
I can see you desperate to please
Let me treat you for your disease

Faith is gone and love is gone
Your disease
And fear is stronger now
Your disease...

    General CommentTom says about karaoke soul:
    " Every aspect of our society and culture has now been reduced to a competition with pre-determined results, much like American elections. Pop music is an interactive soap opera, TV and newspapers are celebrity court circulars telling us what the new Kings and Queens of light entertainment are up to now. And chief Pop Idol himself, Tony Blair, learns a new dance routine every week, hoping we won't notice he's re-hashing the same old tunes. Yes it's all bright and breezy stuff that none of us should get too worked up about. After all, weren't The Monkees manufactured? Fuck off, you're a twat."

    General CommentLove the Tom McRae quotes!

    This sounds like a reference to The Holy Grail:

    Smile at me when you stick in the knife
    We're bleeding into a cup
