Track Name: Missing
I heard you're missing
Where did they take you?
I got your missive
I read it half way through
I think you'll find
That we're ok
But you're offline
You're hard to find
And we're ok
But you're offline

You could be
Post evictim
You could be
Royalty
On an island
Of your making
Are you free?
Arguably

I heard you're missing
I heard you're missing

I heard you're missing
Someone tried to phone
I didn't pick up
The number was unknown
I think you'll find
That we're ok
But you're offline
You're hard to find
And we're ok
But you're offline

You could be
Poster victim
You could be
Celebrity
We won't waste
Our time looking
Are you free?
Arguably

Blown to bits, shot to pieces
Lost at sea, you and me
Kind regards, felicitations
The platitudes you spoon feed me

I heard you're missing
I heard you're missing
Track Name: Law Here
Keep the medicines out of direct sunlight
And you bark don't bite if you want to survive
Keep the windows closed in case I go blind
And the air I breathe has been through you and I don't mind

Don't you think they know?
I'm insured
Don't you think they know?
I want to be ignored
They're living in the walls
Laughing through the floor
Don't you think they know?
I'm feeling so unsure
It's the law here
It's the law here

Please release me when I'm fully grown
I can go outside and find friends of my own
We'll keep the windows closed in case I go blind
And the air I breathe has been through you and I don't mind
It's so bright
It's so bright
It's so bright

Don't you think they know?
I'm insured
Don't you think they know?
I want to be ignored
They're living in the walls
Laughing through the floor
Don't you think they know?
I'm feeling so unsure
Of the law here
What's the law here?
Track Name: Control Issue
An attraction to the cruelty of nature
Did not endear you to your peers
Though they never said they hate you
They didn't show you love either

Stop talking about the things you want
Start talking about the things you don't need
Stop taking pictures of your food
Stop breathing. Stop it

I'm taking control
I'm digging a hole
I'm taking control
Give me the control

They never let you ring the school bell
They run and hide when you show your face
You fucked up every party you went to
The cost of distaste
The look on their face

Stop talking about the things you want
Start talking about the things you don't need
Stop taking pictures of your food
Stop breathing. Stop it

I'm taking control
I'm digging a hole
I'm taking control
Give me the control

Inattention to behaviour in others
Pay attention to the words on your screen
Your attention to this matter is required
Attention span. Attention please

Stop talking about the things you want
Start talking about the things you don't need
Stop taking pictures of your food
Stop breathing. Stop it

Control, control, control, control issue
Track Name: Vitamins
Met in a taxi queue
I'm going home with you
And I can hardly wait
Can we call this a date?

Vitamins
Won't you get them in

Discount holes in the floor
Somebody sold the door
I'll pay your library fine
If you will just be mine

Vitamins

Got to get away
Safe from heresay
Got to get away
Can't stand the replay
Got to get away
Fight the decay
Got to get away
Get away, get away

Vitamin K is nice
You need it in your life
My life is in your fridge
Sometimes I get the itch

Will I get home on time
It's looking borderline
Go to the pharmacist
If anythings remiss

Vitamins

Got to get away
Safe from heresay
Got to get away
Can't stand the replay
Got to get away
Fight the decay
Got to get away
Get away, get away

It's a contagious lie
Mind working overtime
Cat hairs on your black dress
Burning hair makes a mess

Wait in a taxi queue
I'm coming home to you
Smell of the night before
Fall asleep on the floor

Vitamins

Got to get away
Safe from heresay
Got to get away
Can't stand the replay
Got to get away
Fight the decay
Got to get away
Get away, get away
