lyrics

Why am I always running out of what I need?
Of what I need?
Of what I need?

Why must plenty be followed by austerity?
So much less, so much less

I'm a camera that's fixed to measure
The signs of slow decay
Empty centre, nothing's left
Whatever's been earned has already been spent
Sell another pound of your own flesh
The only way to pay the debt

Everybody else is where they already are
Far away, far away

And Everybody else sings someone else's song
Sing along, sing along

I'm leaning on the windowsill,
I'm staring at the day
Without a word to say
I'm a medication
I'm penicillin
I'm coca-cola, cortisone or Thorazine

I'm the candle, I'm the flame
That burns in the strangest way:
Without a wick,
Without a match
Burning out on the plain
