lyrics

Come together, all and sundry
Oh my lover, he went off me
I know his fears, but he knows my weaknesses

I don't push against the whirlpool
Just kinda freewheel on this cycle
Please just let me concentrate on something...

Doormats of the world unite! Keep it simple, not too tight
All that recourse running down, my friends on Facebook rally round
I don't believe in digging deep, prefer to dream about next week
I live my life in such denial, it's worth it just to see him smile

I slide along my sliding scale
That tells me who you are
I grip the sheets and grit my teeth
The failure's quite bizarre
The flags are flying from the roof
I'm terrified of my own truth
I dig a hole and bury all the messages my brain received last night

Trial and trauma, sparse melody
So familiar, always haunts me
I took the stand, I got a shock, my bones were full of electricity

I never said that I was careful
But I don't need another skinful
Christ! Please just let me concentrate on something...

Doormats of the world unite! The bell's been rung- get back on site
The tunnel entrance falls on down, I aggravated some old ground
Blown too much smoke now, don't you think? -
So come on, come on and buy me another drink
Well, I ain't aggro, I ain't sin - just terrified I don't fit in

I slide along my sliding scale
That tells me who you are
I grip the sheets and grit my teeth
The failure's quite bizarre
The flags are flying from the roof
I'm terrified of my own truth
I dig a hole and bury all the messages my brain received last night
