lyrics

I hear the body count
An enquiry's being announced
I can't feel anything at all
Couldn't cry if I wanted to

The radio plays on
With all the songs to take you home
To a place where I can rest
Another person pays the price

And when you wake up you need to get up too
And don't you come to your senses then let consciousness suffocate you
Pulling the covers over you
Saying leave me alone
Won't you leave me alone

In the warmth
In the sinking sand
In the warmth
With the curtains drawn

I don't want your tears
I don't want your disease
I don't want to hear your pleas for help

And when you wake up you need to get up too
And don't you come to your senses then let consciousness suffocate you
Pulling the covers over you
Saying leave me alone
Won't you leave me alone

I need my anaesthetic
I need my entertainment
Turn on the comedy channel
Turn on the music channel

(One day it's gonna go off like a bomb
I'll see clearly what I should have done
Everything I've been ignoring
All the things I've been avoiding)
