---- CHORUS from birth to death and all the time between we hide we are not seen we surrendered everything surrendered our control we pledge, now and forever to surrender to the hole ---- there are stories of the outside stories we've been told stories that encourage us to fit into the mould ---- CHORUS ---- -we shouldn't have left- mbu- -ink mbu- -ink boun- boun- boun- bound- -given -given -give- boun- boun- -ink boun- -given -given -given -ink -ink mbu- -ink -given -given -given (tore tore -rom/bu- bu- bu- bu- bu- bu- bu- bu-/boun- boun- boun- -ink) boun- boun- -given boun- boun- boun- boun- boun- -given boun- gi- -ink -ink -ink -ink -i- boun- boun- boun- -given boun- gi- boun- boun- bou- boun- -given boun- -given (tore tore -rom/bu- bu- bu- bu- bu- bu-) ---- but leaving is exactly what we did (what we did) and leaving was the only thing that tore tore us from the grid (tore us from the grid) (the the the the th- th- th-) the grid that we were tied to that no longer holds us down (holds us down no more) and finally we see what we were missing there's so much more ---- tell me if you can (i can't) why we were buried underground and tell me if you can (i said i can't) if it is better than what we found and tell me if you can (shut up) why we believed what we were told i swear if i get hold of him (of who?) i'll c- ---- we are sinners; we can not forgive nor be forgiven for the pledge that we once took was bound in blood (we shouldn't have left) but i think we all agree that this escape was meant to be as we discover whole new worlds outside our own ---- we feel no remorse when we walk out the door so taking it slowly we start to explore taking it slowly we find so much more

mary was a beautiful clockwork canary but she had to be constantly wary for the things that could happen if she was not they would tear her to bits on the spot they wound her up and they never let her join in their games and she did not know what to do there was not a soul that she knew to turn to and so alone if only someone would throw her a bone someone was there someone wanting to end dispair he promised he'd take good care and he did he created a world where the bird could live in peace at last persecution was now in the past mary was a beautiful clockwork canary and her life was no longer so scary for an artist had rescued her from her hell and he gave her her freedom as well ---- eva was a beautiful clockwork retriever and she was a firm nonbeliever for the others tormented her day and night because she was unable to fight

i innocently walk into a resaurant i innocently walk up to the tills innocently ordering a burger i innocently hand over some bills innocently eating, i innocently chew but something in this cheeseburger's decidedly askew and hold on just a moment - what is that funny taste and why is it exactly that my ketchup's been replaced and now i know why you were shify, i know why you avoid my eye when i order a cheeseburger i don't expect to die ---- CHORUS but dying is the thing that's on the menu and i swear i never knew and in my dying moments there is little i can do but i'll be damned if i give up you will pay for what you've done but i don't have a lot of time - the symptoms have begun ---- as i sit here the world begins to fade there is nobody coming to my aid and as my final moment's drawing near i look into your eyes and show no fear and as your final moment's nearly here you look into my eyes and shed a tear ---- CHORUS dying is the thing that's on the menu and you swear you never knew but in my dying moments there is plenty i can do and i will never give it up until you've paid for what you've done i'll find you in my final moments you can't hide and you can't run ----

this is too hard half an hour gone so far still i can't unroll this roll looking closeley i still can't find it i wonder if i ever will i don't think i posses the needed skill (help me someone) so i approach my problem with my mind i see i have been blind i should have folded the edge back in when i had the chance (there should be a simple way) but even though i pick and pick and pick and pick the end refuses to unstick and i am left believing that this roll doesn't have an end at all (it's too late; i meet my fate) the tape has now become me the only thing i know this mission that began an indeterminate time ago (i've not slept in fifteen days) but even though i pick and pick and pick and pick the end refuses to unstick and i am left believing that this roll doesn't have an end at all (it's too late; i meet my fate)

invade and do not be afraid there's nothing i can do nothing i can do to stop you and something seems to be amiss i can't believe i payed for this for you ---- CHORUS you the ones who waste my bandwidth the ones who tell your friends the ones who never think of the one on whom this site depends you're the reason i'm in abject poverty the reason i'm not eating and the reason this is self defeating ---- i tried to make this worth my while i tried to do it with a smile but my mind returns to andrew and what i thought were lies i find myself wearing his shoes and i begin to sympathise ---- CHORUS ----

fall and don't stall the ground it does call and yes we await you and no we can not hate you for despite the worsening weather you bring us together ---- now the bombs are falling like a heavy metal rain we gather in the countryside and plan our new campaign and even though we're dying and our cities are in flames there's plenty still to smile about and we are taking names i think you'd be surprised how well distraction eases pain and we are keeping busy and we're not going insane 'cause war is never permanent and life goes on the same and in what little time we have we may as well join in the game ---- we escaped from the light and the fire and the bombs that you drop take us higher ---- destroy what you can and then move on we will still be here when you are gone we'll still be here still be without fear still united and still we will fight to survive fall and don't stall

i wanna be the very best like no-one ever was to catch them is my real test to train them is my cause i will travel across the land searching far and wide each pokemon to understand the power that's inside ---- CHORUS it's you and me i know it's my destiny oh, you're my best friend in a world we must defend a heart so true our courage will pull us through you teach me and i'll teach you pokemon gotta catch 'em all ---- every challenge along the way with courage i will face i will battle every day to claim my rightful place come with me; the time is right there's no better team arm in arm we'll win the fight it's always been our dream ---- CHORUS ----

the deadline's on the way you can't delay it's like this every day a litany of paperwork you'll go bezerk and you are drowned you are unwound and when you see there's more no more ---- CHORUS what do they want from you and what what do they want you to do the paperwork goes on and on and on you feel the meaning's gone ---- what if i escaped here and started a war what if someone else already tried that before what if when i leave here i'm shot in the head what if there's a reason i was sent here instead what if there was suddenly a shortage of steve what if there was suddenly a reason to believe what if i could make it to the manager's supply imagine if i managed to destr- (just shut up and die) ---- you hate what you became it's all the same you forgot your name and even though you try your best you fail the test and now it seems they crushed your dreams you soldier on you can't go on ---- CHORUS what do they want from you and what what do they want you to do the paperwork goes on and on and on you feel the meaning's gone ---- sitting in the dark and waiting for the answer sitting in my cube with a terapin enhancer sitting in a box with "filed" on the side sitting in a box because i'm trying to hide thinking of the days when i didn't have to do this thinking back to when i could, with relish, reminisce thinking what a waste my life is spent inside a box thinking how i hate it here and watching the clocks what if i escaped here and started a war what if someone else already tried that before what if when i leave here i'm shot in the head what if there's a reason i was sent here instead what if there was suddenly a shortage of steve what if there was suddenly a reason to believe what if i could make it to the manager's supply imagine if i managed to destr- ----

i can't blame you i must take that blame myself for even though it was you who asked me i shoould have known that it would end badly for one of us but you were making such a fuss i know now and i think that i knew then - i shouldn't have let you come and now what have you become? ---- trenchfoot's on a rampage (so hide your bones and lock up your cuddly toys) trenchfoot's on a rampage (he's really pretty angry and he's making lots of noise) trenchfoot's on a rampage (there's nothing anyone can do to stop him) trenchfoot's on a rampage (it's really pretty grim) we can not know how long his rage will last it's lasted longer in the past but we can not give up just yet; there's still a chance he might forget the world's in chaos, falling to the ground he just goes round and round and round and round again, he'll never stop he's like a gyro in a top ---- (trench) trenchfoot's on a rampage (so hide your bones and lock up your cuddly toys) (he's on a rampage) trenchfoot's on a rampage (he's really pretty angry and he's making lots of noise) trenchfoot's on a rampage (there's nothing anyone can do to stop him)

i know you're here you're drawing near hello, little travellers, come rest your weary feet hello, you have stumbled on my personal retreat hello and be aware that you're entirely unwelcome here while you may be the first to enter you will not be the first to leave i swear that i will tear you limb from limb from limb and i apologise - i know you weren't expecting me and there's a part of me that wants to disagree but you have violated everything that's dear to me i hope that you can see why your destruction has to be has to be

it's warm in here why do you have to fight it's warm in here why do you have to fight i know you know that i don't have a choice but still you fight, you resist if i die you will rejoice have you no inkling of the world outside your mind is there no way that you could care for other creatures you might find ---- have you been taking medicine? i feel a little ill ---- it's warm in here why do you have to fight with your repulsive medication (aah) and i am looking forth with fear to my approaching termination you don't even care that there's a living breathing thing inside you you don't even know that i'm alive and you don't even care that i depend on you for everything and all the while you nurtured me our friendship was a sham and i am lost without you

the hat, it wants to fit the hat wants me to wear it the hat, it wants to fit but i don't want to tear it the hat is far too small for me the hat is far too tiny the hat is really small the hat is sad the hat is sad the hat is sad once i had a head that would slip right inside with ease but i have grown since then the hat is far too small for me the hat is far too tiny the hat is really small the hat is sad
