lyrics

there is no side of my consciousness that you have never seen
from the spice heads in the market to the morning shakes and somewhere in between

and when I met you
you were minimal in weight
you just floated on the surface on your own tectonic plate

they call you paracetamol
they call you co co codamol
they call you soluble ampheta-hope I make you better-mine

she wants you to follow her in to the fray
she forgets her purse but you’re willing to pay
you play the disciple and she plays the joker
you’re endlessly patient
you’re there when she wants to be sober

she only wants to be with boys like that
and you don’t wanna be with girls like that

she tells a tale of betrayal
but the story isn’t true
still I relinquish my religion
I choose to believe in you

they call you paracetamol
they call you co co codamol
they call you soluble ampheta-hope I make you better-mine

you offer her something she’s not had before
you feel like she’s willing to let you be more
you grab her and tell her you’ll always be there
you’re starting to get somewhere
then she’s changing her tune
says she feels like she’s wearing a noose around you
then you watch her recline to the scourge on the name of this town
you’re waiting for her to come down

and we run from the cops as they’re pushing the spice heads over
but they came to the house and section her in her pyjamas
she's convinced there’s no problem until they cut off her resources
now they poke with a stick as she rattles around the asylum

where your story isn’t true
I choose to believe in you
