lyrics

IF YOU WERE WAY OFF THE GRID
IF YOU WERE NOTHING BUT MYTH
WOULD YOU LOVE WHO YOU LOVE?
WOULD YOU KISS OTHER LIPS?

I ONCE WALKED DOWN THE STREET WHERE I LIVED
FOR A BLOCK, IN ATONEMENT
ONCE I GOT UP THE NERVE IN A MAD WORLD

SHELLED SEX, LIQUID AND THIN
FELT THE BREATH ON MY NECK OF A DEALER'S GRIN
AND THE MYSTERY SWIRLED AROUND A MAD WORLD

CHORUS:
THE ONES I LOVE ARE STRANGERS LIVING WHISPERED LIVES
DENYING EVERYTHING WE'D KNOWN AS TRUTH THAT TURNED TO LIES
DANCING ‘ROUND THE DANGER 'TIL DEFINITION BLURS
BLISSED AND TWISTING IN THE WIND THAT’S BLOWING THROUGH A MAD WORLD

A JAW SLACKED LIKE A HINGE ON PIN
BLACK AS AN AXE, STIFF AS TIN
MURMURING SLURS IN A MAD WORLD

A NERVE WRACKED, TAUT, AND FLINCHED
AN ASSASSIN'S LAUGH, QUIVERED AND PINCHED
CACKLED AND PURRED IN A MAD WORLD

CHORUS:

BRIDGE:
TWO LEFT FEET, TWO LEFT FEET
I HEAR THE DEVIL'S GOT TWO LEFT FEET

I SLEEPWALK, INVENT A FACE
CORONATED INSOMNIAC KING OF THE MAZE
CHARRED AND CURLED IN A MAD WORLD

CHORUS:
