another bloated disco, another sniff of romance i'll forget 

Em D C D

we promised to ourselves before we came out we'd do something we regret 


these people are your friends 


this cunted circus never ends 

C D Em

I won't remember anything you say 

I lost my social skills a while ago but now i feel them coming back 
my eyes were rolling when we met and now they are preparing for attack 
i want to fall in love tonight and form the perfect unbreakable bond 
you can be my teenage jenny agutter, swimming naked in a pond 
you know i'm always moanin' 
but you jumpstart my seratonin 
but how d'you know you've ever really loved? 

but when i feel like this, i know it doesn't matter 
when i eat when i'm not hungy i'm sure i feel my face get fatter 
then i thin out every weekend and i think that she might want me 
but i always slip off my own 'cause... 

i let those feelings haunt me, they control me, but tonight i'm letting go 
you're more then just a photo album, you're more than what some people let you know 
and if we ever make it home, i'll tell you all the things that shaped me thus 
something forged in a phonebox but lost in a restaurant we've got so much to discuss 
here, have you tried the blue ones? 
i hear he's got some new ones 
sleep is not an option tonight 

look at us just stand and stare 
look at them just pose and pout 
and we'll all be standing here 
until the pigs chuck us out
