Tell Roger, He’s Annoying! Lyrics

A Call to Arms
(Greaves / Rennie)

All the losers and the failures tonight
Take up arms cos it’s time to fight
Heads buried, deep in the sand
Now it’s time to make a stand

All your life, you’ve missed out
Now I wanna hear you shout

Chorus
I’m calling at the top of my voice
It’s time to make a choice
This is not a false alarm
This is a call to arms

So now we’re standing on the front line
You have your reasons and I have mine
A life to lose, a life to save
Stand your ground boy, just be brave

Let the glory fill your mind
Leave your fears behind

Chorus
I’m calling at the top of my voice
It’s time to make a choice
This is not a false alarm

Ooh, who do you think you are?
Ooh, who do you think you are?
Ooh, who do you think you are?
This is my place, you’re in my space
Get out of my face

Sick of being cut to size
Get your eyes on the prize

Chorus
This is a call to arms
This is a call to arms

Counted Out
(Greaves / Rennie)

I’m oppressed by irrational fears
I can’t move or speak
I can’t think in this atmosphere
So helpless and so weak

Chorus
I can feel it drawing near
And it cuts me like a knife

Why does courage abandon me now?
Surely a friend in need
Seems I must be all lucked out
Left with a fear that I must feed

Claustrophobic and deranged
Paralysed and out of sorts
Fighting this feeling that’s so strange
But it’s a war that must be fought

Chorus

Whisper be stubborn my friend
Get up when you fall down
Cos you’re not counted out

Chorus

I can feel it, I can feel it
And it cuts me, and it cuts me
Leave’s me frozen cold with fear
And I’m begging, and I’m begging for my….

Where Do We Go From Here..?
(Greaves)

Another day, another cold shoulder
Why can’t we talk instead of growing older?
I’ve tried so many times and ways
To show you how I feel
But now I don’t have anything left to give
I wish that we could talk it over
But oh, where do we go from here?

Inside, in pieces lies my broken heart
I think it’s time we made a brand new start
I’d rather be all on my own
Than feeling this way
And I can’t think of a reason to stay
I just want an end to this pain and this heartache
But oh, where do we go from here?

I’ve got this aching in me
I think we both know what we need to do

Remember when we used to be as one
Stay awake all night just waiting for the sun
I don’t know when things started to change
But I know they can’t stay the same
You told me to go to hell, here I am
I just want an end to this pain and this heartache
I wish that we could talk it over
But oh, where do we go from here?

How Does It Feel?
(Greaves / Rennie)

The strangest feeling’s coming over me
Like I’m a prisoner who can’t break free
The walls are crashing like a tidal wave

And if you wanna come with me
Well just go down and be brave
Can’t say it won’t hurt a little
It’s time to leave so get on your way

Chorus
How does it feel?
I’m an animal, a cannibal, so unreal
How does it feel?
I could chew you up, spit you out
I’ll go right through you
How does it feel?
I’m an animal, a cannibal, it’s so unreal
How does it feel?

So now you know a little of my style
Maybe you would like to stay a while
You’ll earn your keep if you don’t mind pain

I’m just a little sadistic
And all these things make me smile
And soon you’ll learn to love it
I will keep you as a slave my child

Chorus

And if you wanna come with me
Well just go down and brave
Can’t say it won’t hurt a little
It’s time to leave so get on your way

Chorus

Same Old Sky
(Greaves)

Carried away on a crest of a wave of emotions
I never thought I’d feel this way at all
What was once so far away has become so close
A timely reminder of how things should be

Who knows what the future holds for you or me?
Or if we’ll ever meet each other again?

Chorus
Eat, sleep, laugh and cry
We all live under the same old sky
Breathe drink, live and die
We all live under the same old sky

Separated by nothing more than a time zone
The world’s getting smaller every day
I only have to close my eyes and I’m right there
Suddenly, you aint so far away

Who said the story has to end, my learned friend?
I say, it’s only just begun

Chorus

Who knows what the future holds?
I guess we’ll see
I’m sure we’re gonna meet each other again

The Science of Losing Control
(Greaves / Rennie)

My heart wont stop ticking
Like a broken clock
My magma blood through autobahn veins
Hairs stand on end
Up and down the back of my neck
Here comes the rush, it’s starting again

Chorus
So you’ve just gotta let it go
This is the science of losing control
It’s just something that I need you to know

I feel my neurons snapping
They fizzle and pop
Electrified, bottom to top
I’m going up a gear as I ride through the fear
Screaming round the bend, it’s starting over again

Chorus

It’s so easy
Come on and release me
We can lose control together
We can learn to crash and burn
Come and please me, we can lose control together
We can learn to crash and burn

Chorus

So you just gotta let it go
Just gotta let it go
This is the science
The science of losing control

Irrelevant Nightmares
(Greaves / Rennie)

Into the arms of Morpheus I fall
A grain of sand in the vastest desert
This hourglass has no relevance to me
Am I me in this lucid state I feel?
Or do I have the chance to be another
Experience beyond darkest clarity

And if I try to examine closely
Behind the veil that hides my being
Will I embrace what it is I see?

I’ve had a taste of a total stranger
And the scent is so unfamiliar
Points of view, something new to see
Am I scared of realising
All the truths that I have written
Is it all too ugly to be revealed?

Why do I feel so vacant?
Explain this timeless moment
Everything is so shapeless
I’m slipping with the current
Am I really the only one?
To tread these footsteps into
The mind of a fool
Can I walk on through?
Turn the corner to the truth

I’m so tired of being unsure
And I’m not sure of who I am
Should it matter I like what I see
I guess it’s time to just start guessing
I’m ready to get my hands dirty
What’s round the corner?
Who will come with me?

After all is said and done
I can’t accept this thing that I’ve become
Should I be left alone to burn in hell?
Erased from memory as well

How can I ever show my face?
While I wear this mask of disgrace
I have to grin and bear this burden cross
And fathom order out of chaos

I lay in my bed no money to spend
Gone in the head I’ve gone round the bend
Without you hear, my life’s a room spare
I need you here but what do you care?
Nothing is sacred, all is permitted
Nothing is static, fixed or fitted
I walk through the hallways of my being
I fight the darkness, can’t see or be seen
The only permanence is change
Designs forever re-arranged
Without you here I’m in despair
I want you near, you never cared

Dark rivers of the heart, sailing, sailing on
Dark rivers of the heart, the beating and the flow
Sleep walking in the dark, fleeting shadows
No-one follows
And it’s taking my soul away

Taking my soul away

Dark rivers of the heart, feelings drain away from me
Dark rivers of the heart, strewn by the winds but connected by sins
Sleep walking in the dark, getting further and further apart
No-one follows, no-one follows
And it’s taking my soul away

No-one follows

And it’s taking my soul away

(No-one follows, no-one follows)

Taking my soul away
Taking my soul away….
