Living Is A Problem Because Everything Dies

/
Biffy Clyro

 

Come on baby do you think it’s good to feel
Like I’m lying here swimming in memories
I fear God because everything dies babe
Got a gun in the back of my car
A spasm of good sense is making my eye twitch
I’ve had enough of all your consolation

I’m drowning caught in a shit tide
Tape my face to the inside of love
Nothing to eat but fears in the back seat
Well I’ve met God and he had nothing to say to me

I pray to God that you’re right before my eyes
Bathed in white light with halos in your eyes

Don’t wanna waste no more time
Time’s what we don’t have
Everywhere I look someone dies
Wonder when it’s my turn

How well do you know me?
Leave an open door, what you looking for
Babe when you come down?
I built a time machine to escape from
All the pain in the back of my car
Living’s a problem because everything dies babe
Save yourself you’re not too far away

I pray to God that you’re right before my eyes
Bathed in white light with halos in your eyes

Don’t wanna waste no more time
Time’s what we don’t have
Everywhere I look someone dies
Wonder when it’s my turn

Saturday Superhouse

Biffy Clyro

 

I’ll be sitting on the left side, you’ll be sitting on the right
Dying to share our problems, make everything alright
Then I see a darkness, you see the blinding light
Will Oldham’s in the corner moaning « Can’t you write your own lines »

If we don’t know where we belong
It’ll make no difference from where we started
Look out kid because here it comes
You’re not the lucky ones

There’s a dozen corpses on the left side, I swear one’s smiling at me
Compliments on your confessions baby, wow you really showed me
You think that you’re full of conviction, really you’re just trying to survive
Tie them up then spit them out it’s good to help the boy shine

If we don’t know where we belong
It’ll make no difference from where we started
Look out kid because here it comes
You’re not the lucky ones

Who’s Got A Match?

/
Biffy Clyro

 

Which of the witches do you belong?
The one with the eye patch or the one who’s highly strung
I know you can’t trust anyone
How do you capture a photograph?
Put it to sleep pretend you’re having a laugh
I know you thought you’d have the last

I’m a fire and I’ll burn burn burn tonight
I’m a fire and I’ll burn burn burn tonight
I’m a fire and I’ll burn burn burn tonight
I’m a fire and I’ll burn burn burn tonight

The midget is frigid I put it to you
Who’s got a match I’ve got the petrol to set it too
I know I shouldn’t have trusted you
It’s making me tense when you’re telling me
It’s just the facts that don’t compute the classic way
I guess I’m wrong again anyway

I’m a fire and I’ll burn burn burn tonight
I’m a fire and I’ll burn burn burn tonight
I’m a fire and I’ll burn burn burn tonight
I’m a fire and I’ll burn burn burn tonight

I’m a fire and I’ll burn tonight
I’m a fire
I’m a fire and I’ll burn tonight
I’m a fire

I’m a fire and I’ll burn burn
I’m a fire and I’ll burn burn
I’m a fire and I’ll burn burn
I’m a fire and I’ll burn burn
I’m a fire and I’ll burn burn
I’m a fire and I’ll burn burn
I’m a fire
I’m a fire
I’m a fire.

As Dust Dances

/
Biffy Clyro

 

There’s a man on the corner selling dozens of bones
Every type of bone except the one that I want
Ever think what your eyes do they’re trying to sleep
But where your tongue rests, is it against your teeth

And now it’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than everything it decides to touch

Asleep is the safest place you could be
You can try hard to catch it, it just catches you
Imagine a camera coming up from your feet
Relax all your muscles son just hope your hearts in one piece

And now it’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than everything it decides to touch
It’s bigger than a halo, a devil, an angel and a crow

The bones got the wrong detail I hoped it would have
Safe for a shin bone or even a hand

It’s such a lonely ride
It’s such a lonely ride
It’s such a lonely ride
It’s such a lonely ride
It’s such a lonely ride
It’s such a lonely ride
It’s such a lonely ride
It’s such a lonely ride

And now it’s bigger than us
It’s bigger than everything it decides to touch
The bones got the wrong detail I hoped it would have for you
Safe for a shin bone or even a hand

There’s a man on the corner selling dozens of bones
Every type of bone except the one that I want.

A Whole Child Ago

/
Biffy Clyro

 

I don’t want to let you know your hearts an attraction
But I know what you’re looking for
It’s me you’re waiting for
You’re not allowed to live anymore

And a whole child ago I would sleep all day
Doing handstands in bottle bins
To prove that I’m sane
And I’m not fooling around

Looks like we made it
I can tell that she’d been flying
Looks like we made it tonight

I’m the second devil on your right or left with an eyeball
Melting out the corner of my mouth
The wings are bleeding
You’re not supposed to fly anymore

And a whole child ago I would sleep all day
Doing handstands in bottle bins
To prove that I’m sane
And I’m not fooling around

Looks like we made it
I can tell that she’d been flying
Looks like we made it tonight

Looks like we made it
I can tell that she’d been flying
I saw her in the sky

Why don’t you just ask her yourself
Why don’t you just ask her yourself
Why don’t you just ask her yourself
Why don’t you just ask her yourself
Why don’t you just ask her yourself
Why don’t you just ask her yourself.

The Conversation Is…

/
Biffy Clyro

 

I wander streets at night and hope to god to see your face
The fluorescent billboards sell a wonderful life that doesn’t exist anymore
The conversation is
The conversation is over

What will I do if I’m wrong
Will I blame it on everyone
Else like I always do
So I’m a coward because of you

Are pills the only way to make myself complete again
They become the only way to a wonderful life with a happy ending
The conversation is
The conversation is over

What will I do if I’m wrong
Will I blame it on everyone
It’s like I always do
I’m a coward because of you
I’m finding it hard to explain why I think that I’m right again
I’d love someone else to blame so I’m a coward because of you
And then you try to understand what it takes to be a man
And then you look into your hearts it defines you

What will I do if I’m wrong
Will I blame it on everyone
It’s like I always do
I’m a coward because of you
I’m finding it hard to explain why I think that I’m right again
I’d love someone else to blame so I’m a coward because of you
And then you try to understand what it takes to be a man
And then you look into your hearts it defines you

The conversation is over
The conversation is over.

Now I’m Everyone

/
Biffy Clyro

 

Happiness is an allusion
Hold me close to see me a little more
Until my body feels your magic touch and steals my skin before it rots
My castle is a great illusion

Now I’m everyone, now I’m everyone, now I’m everyone
Now I’m everyone, now I’m everyone, its less than I’ve ever been

Hairy eyes are an obstruction
Help me die don’t wanna rush ya
And all I need is a philosophy of noise to help me laugh and breathe
My castle is a great illusion

Now I’m everyone, now I’m everyone, now I’m everyone
Now I’m everyone, now I’m everyone, its less than I’ve ever been
Now I’m everyone, now I’m everyone, now I’m everyone
Now I’m everyone, now I’m everyone, its less than I’ve ever been

This is the one [x38]

Semi-Mental

/
Biffy Clyro

 

I smoke my face in, night after night
To numb the pain and stop the world spinning round and round
But how was I to know that in my mind I’m not so pure
Look into my eyes you can see I’m many different people

You shone a light on my life, now I’m just sentimental
You shone a light on my life, now I’m just sentimental

I’m not a drinker, I try it every night
I force it down to throw it up and start all over again
But I will climb a tower to stick my flag on top
And look down on everyone, help me to salute the people

You shone a light on my life, now I’m just sentimental
You shone a light on my life, now I’m just sentimental

You have tried to resist the pain, but you know you’re not alone
I have tried to resist the pain, but now I’m all alone

You shone a light on my life, now I’m just sentimental
You shone a light on my life, now I’m just sentimental

Love Has A Diameter

/
Biffy Clyro

 

You can give up if you like your heads lying down at your feet
You can call on the phone anytime you want to talk to me
If you know who you are you can always go round and see
If you don’t and you’re scared concentrate and grit your teeth

I’m watching the radio cause I don’t compare
I’m watching the radio but it’s the television looking at me

Wooooah
Wooooah
Wooooah
Wooooah

Feathers will fly if you shoot a bullet full of bubble gum
At my throat or my heart I’m protected by a humming bird
Receive only luck if you can it wouldn’t be a constant mistake
Over flown but under worn so please come follow me

I’m watching the radio cause I don’t compare
I’m watching the radio but it’s the television looking at me
I’m watching the radio cause I don’t compare
I’m watching the radio but it’s the television looking, the television looking at me

Wooooah
Wooooah
Wooooah
Wooooah
(i will claw at your own feet)
Wooooah
(just because it tastes so sweet)
Wooooah
(take it out quiet star)
Wooooah
(its not like your in need)
Wooooah

I’m watching the radio cause I don’t compare
I’m watching the radio but it’s the television looking at me
(I will claw at your own feet)
I’m watching the radio cause I don’t compare
(take it out quiet star)
I’m watching the radio but it’s the television looking, the television looking at me

Wooooah
Wooooah
(television looking at me)
Wooooah
Wooooah
(television looking at me)
Wooooah
Wooooah
(television looking at me)

Get Fucked Stud

/
Biffy Clyro

 

Oh my distorted smile will tighten its grip
Now somebody is asking when you will disappear
You have to believe yourself to be happy now
You can’t reply on someone else to be happy

Get fucked stud it’s time to kill
Only you see the sunset on amphetamines

All hands on the courtesy cunt
Get fucked stud I know you will burn in hell
For pretending to be the god of all men I demand of you
Pretend to burn in hell to be
The god of all well follow me
You’re fucking right. I’m all at sea
My teeth are made of baby hair

The skyline is burning red so we’ll all go down
Follow my head to survive cause it won’t take us long to come round
The skyline is burning red so we’ll all go down
Follow my head to survive cause it won’t take us long to come round

Get fucked stud it’s time to kill
Only you see the sunset on amphetamines

The skyline is burning red so we’ll all go down
Follow my head to survive cause it won’t take us long to come round

Folding Stars

/
Biffy Clyro

 

Take a long hard look at yourself
How did you end up here
The blood drips like red inverted balloons
Tomorrow is a promise to no-one

If you want, follow me and I’ll lead you inside
You don’t have to run and hide

Eleanor, Eleanor
I would do anything for another minute with you because
It’s not getting easier, it’s not getting easier

In a bedroom with no windows or doors
All the happy people are crying
You can’t hold a gaze for a second or two
It always ends in total darkness

Eleanor, Eleanor
I would do anything for another minute with you because
It’s not getting easier, it’s not getting easier
You will be folding stars
You can’t ever understand
It’s not getting easier, it’s not getting easier

It ends in a place with no love only hate
And a mirror reflecting the truth
In your eyes, in your face you can’t wash it away
From your cold, cold heart

I hope that you’re folding stars

9/15ths

Biffy Clyro

 

We’re on a hellslide help us help us

Are you irrelevant? You’re falling to pieces

How do you become one again?
Are you an elephant? You’ve fallen to piececs
How do you do?

We’re on a hellslide help us help us

Machines

/
Biffy Clyro

 

I would dig a thousand holes to lay next to you
I would dig a thousand more if I needed to
I look around the grave for an escape route of old routines
There doesn’t seem to be any other way

Cause I’ve started falling apart I’m not savouring life
I’ve forgotten how good it could be to feel alive

Crazy as it sounds you wont feel as low as you feel right now
At least that’s what I’ve been told by everyone
I whisper empty sounds in your ear and hope that you won’t let go
Take the pieces and build them skywards

Cause I’ve started falling apart I’m not savouring life
I’ve forgotten how good it could be to feel alive

I’ve started falling apart I’m not savouring life
Take the pieces and build them skywards
I’ve forgotten how good it could be to feel alive
Take the pieces and build them skywards

I’ve started falling apart I’m not savouring life
Take the pieces and build them skywards
I’ve forgotten how good it could be to feel alive
Take the pieces and build them skywards

I’ve started falling apart I’m not savouring life
Take the pieces and build them skywards
I’ve forgotten how good it could be to feel alive
Take the pieces and build them skywards

Take the pieces and build them skywards
and
Take the pieces and build them skywards
and
Take the pieces and build them up to the sky.

Drop It

/
Biffy Clyro

 

I fell in love with the root of all good
She turned round and left me
I knew that she would

I fell in love with the root of all evil
Now I’m just starting to see

I drop into the ocean
My friend the stormy sea
As long as the blindness
Won’t leave me tonight

I felt the wrath of the chosen one
I wanted forgiveness but was given none
Let all the lights scream in my eyes
That’s how I want it to fee

I fell in love
I fell in love
