He said, "You're just as boring as everyone else
When you tut and you moan
And you squeal and you squelch"
He said, "You're just as boring as everyone else
Nothing ever happens"

Things replace things, days replace days
Things replace things

She said, "I'm gonna use my teeth and my claws"
She said, "I'm gonna use my teeth and my claws"
She said, "I'm gonna use my teeth and my breasts"
"I'm gonna make it happen", she said

Run run run, run run run
And you cannot run or ever, ever escape
Run run run, run run run
You cannot run or ever hide it away

Run run run, run run run
Something glorious is about to happen
Run run run, run run run
The reckoning

They go, "You're just as boring as everyone else
When you tut and you moan
And you squeal and you squelch"
They go, "You're just as boring as everyone else
Stuck past timing"

The fear and the yearning
The fear and the consumption
The fear and the yearning
"It's gonna eat you alive", they go

Run run run, run run run
And you cannot hide or ever, ever escape
Run run run, run run run
And you cannot hide or ever put it away

Run run run, run run run
Something glorious is about to happen
Run run run, run run run
The reckoning

They go, they say, they go
They say, they go

Why'd you have to get so hysterical?
Why'd you have to get so hysterical?
Why'd you have to get so hysterical?
Why'd you have to get so hysterical?

Why'd you have to get so hysterical?
Why'd you have to get so hysterical?
Why'd you have to get so hysterical?
Why'd you have to get so fuckin' useless?

Play it cool, boy, play it cool, boy
Play it cool, boy, play it cool, boy
Play it cool

OKEREKE, KELE/LISSACK, RUSSELL/MOAKES, GORDON/TONG, MATT
