FWN 99% official lyrics - (apparently)

Postby Leeming » Thu Apr 26, 2007 8:25 pm

I found these whilst searchin the net. I've edited a few bits.

They seem to all be correct tho!! ( I'm not takin credit)


1. Brianstorm:

Brian, Top marks for not trying,
so kind of you to bless us with your effortlessness
we’re grateful and so strangely comforted
and I wonder,
Are you putting us under?
cos we can't take our eyes off the t-shirt and tie combination
see you later Innovator!

Some want to kiss some want to kick you
There's not a net you couldn't slip through
Or at least that's the impression I get
cos you're smooth and you're wet
And she's not aware yet, but she's yours

She'll be saying "Use me", Show me the Jacuzzi
I imagine that it's there on a plate, you're our rendezvous rate
Means you'll never be frightened, to make 'em wait for a while
I doubt it's your style not to get what you set out to acquire
The eyes are on fire you are the un-forecasted storm

Calm, Collected and Commanding you leave the other stories standing
With your renditions and jokes I bet there's hundreds of blokes
That have wept because you've stolen their.......Thunder
Are you putting us under?
cos we can't take our eyes off the t-shirt and tie combination
see you later Innovator!



2. Teddy Picker

They’ve sped up to the point where they provoke,
The punch-line before they have told the joke,
Plenty of desperation to be seen,
Staring at the television screen,
They've sped up to the point where they provoke you to tell the fucking punch-line before you have told the joke,
“i'm sorry, sunshine, it doesn't exist, It wasn't in the top 100 list“

And it’s the 1000th time that it's even bolder
Don't be surprised when you get bent over
They told you but you were dying for it

Saw it and she grabbed it and it wasn't what it seemed
The kids all dream of making it, whatever that means

Another variation on a theme
A tangle on the television and a magazine
Do you reckon that they'd do it for a joke?
Do you reckon that they make them take an oath that says that we are defenders of any poser or professional pretender around

When did your list replace the twist and turn like a fist, replaced a kiss, Don’t concern us with your bollocks,
I don’t want your prayer, save it for the morning after

It’s the 1000th time that it's even bolder
Don't be surprised when you get bent over
They told you but you were dying for it

Let's have a game on the Teddy Picker
Not quick enough can I have it quicker
Already thick and your gettin' thicker? X2

Presuming that all things are equal
Who'd want to be men of the people when there's people like you



3 D is for Dangerous:

He knew what he wanted to say but he didnt know how to word it
The dirty little Herbert was thinkin' an escape but the place was well guarded
The guiltiness had started, soon as the other part had stopped

D is for Delightful and try and keep your trousers on
I think you should know you're his favorite worst nightmare

D is for desperately trying to simulate what it was that was alright three
quarters of an hour ago that had led him to be in the position, on the brink
of a mission, on the brink of an episode

He's nearing the brink but he thinks first, a parallel universe perhaps could be the perfect scene x3

He's nearing the brink but he thinks first, a parallel
I think you should know you're his favorite worst nightmare

D is for Delightful and try and keep your trousers on
you should know you're his favorite worst nightmare


4 Balaclava:

Running off over next doors garden before the hour is done
It's more a question of feeling than it is a question of fun
The confidence is the balaclava I’m sure you’ll baffle them good
Will the ending wreak of salty cheeks and runny makeup alone or will blood run
down the face of a boy bewildered and scorned
will you find yourself in a skirmish, will you wish you'd never been born
will you tie yourselves to the tracks and there isn’t no going back and its wrong wrong wrong but we’ll do it anyway cause we love a bit of trouble

Are you pulling her from a burning building or throwing her to the sharks
Can only hope the ending is as pleasurable as the start
The confidence is the balaclava, I’m sure you’ll baffle them straight and its wrong wrong wrong she can hardly wait

That’s right,
He won’t let her out his sight
Now the shaggers perform and the daggers are drawn, who’s the crooks in this crime? X2

That’s right,
He won’t let her out his sight x3

Will you be able to boast
That this day held the most flawless heist of all time

You knew that it would be trouble right before the very first kiss Quiet and
Unassuming but you heard that they were the naughtiest
She pleaded with you to take it off but you resisted and thought ‘sorry
Sweetheart I’d much rather, keep on the balaclava


5 Fluorescent Adolescent:

You used to get it in your fishnets
now you only get it in your night dress
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness
landed in a very common crisis
Everything's in order in a black hole
Nothing seems as pretty as the past though
That Bloody Mary's lacking her Tabasco
Remember when he used to be a rascal?

Oh the boys a slag, the best you’ve ever had
The best you ever had is just a memory and those dreams weren’t as daft as they seemed, not as daft as they seemed my love when you dreamed them up

Flicking through a little book of sex tips
Remember when the boys were all electric?
Now when she’s tells she's going to get it
I'm guessing that she'd rather just forget it

Clinging to not getting sentimental
Says she wasn't going but she went still,
Likes a gentlemen not to be gentle
Was it a mecca dobber or a betting pencil?

The boys a slag, the best you’ve ever had
The best you ever had is just a memory and those dreams weren’t as daft as they seemed, not as daft as they seemed my love when you dreamed them up

Oh Flo, where did you go?
Where did you go?
Where did you go?

Your Falling about
you took a left off Last Laugh Lane
You were just soundin' it out
but you're not coming back again. X2

You used to get it in your fishnets
now you only get it in your night dress
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness
landed in a very common crisis
Everything's in order in a black hole
Is everythin' as pretty as the past though?
That Bloody Mary's lacking her Tabasco
Remember when he used to be a rascal?



6 Only ones who know:

In a foreign place, the saving grace was the feeling,
That it was her heart that he was stealing,
he was ready to impress and the fierce excitement, the eyes are bright he couldnt wait to get away, and I bet that Juliet was just the icing on the cake,
Make no mistake, no

And even if somehow we could have shown you the place you wanted,
Well I’m sure you could have made it that bit better on your own,

And I bet she told a million people that she'd stay in touch,
But all the little promises they don’t mean much when there’s memories to be made,
And I hope you're holding hands by new years eve,
They made it far too easy to believe that true romance cant be achieved these days,

And even if somehow we could have shown you the place you wanted,
Well I’m sure you could have made it that bit better on your own,
You are the only ones who know


7 Do me a favour:

When the mourning was complete.
When there was tears on the steering wheel dripping on the seat,
Several hours or several weeks,
I'd have the cheek to say they're equally as bleak

It's the beginning of the end
The car went up the hill and disappeared around the bend
Ask anyone they'll tell you that It's these times that it tends
To start to break in half,
To start to fall apart
Hold on to your heart.

Do me a favour and break my nose
Do me a favour and tell me to go away
Do me a favour and stop asking questions

As she walked away well her shoes were untied
and the eyes were all red you could see that we'd cried
and I watched and I waited until she was inside
forcing a smile and waving goodbye.

Curiosity becomes a heavy load, too heavy to hold, too heavy to hold.
Curiosity becomes a heavy load, too heavy to hold,
it’ll force you to be cold

Do me a favour, and ask if you need some help!
She said, "do me a favour and stop flattering yourself"
and to tear apart the ties that bind,
Perhaps fuck off, might be too kind,
Perhaps fuck off, might be too kind.


8 This house is a circus:

This house is a circus, beserk as fuck
We tend to see that as a perk though. Look what it's done to your friends,
their memories are pretend, and the last thing that they want is for the feeling to end

This house is a circus, beserk as fuck
We tend to see that as a perk though. Look what it's done to your friends,
their memories are pretend, and the last thing that they want is for the feeling to end

There’s a room full of trouble and there's lovers to be had
Those walls make sinners out of such lovely lads
Scaling the corridors for maidens in the maze
In here normally you slip into familiar ways

And We’re forever unfulfilled
And can’t think why
Like a search for murder clues
In dead men’s eyes

Forever unfulfilled
And can’t think why
Like a search for murder clues
In dead man’s eyes

The more you open your mouth the more you're forcing performance
All the attention is leading me to feel important
(Give me obnoxious) (Give me obnoxious now)
Now that we're here, we may as well go too far

Wriggling around an incident you won't forget
There's certainly some venom in the looks that you collect
Aimlessly gazing at the faces in the kiln
and we're struggling with the notion that it's life not film

This house is a circus, beserk as fuck
We tend to see that as a perk though. Look what it's done to your friends,
their memories are pretend, and the last thing that they want is for the feeling to end


8 If you were there, beware:

If you were there, beware the serpent soul pinchers
350 no thank yous and nobody flinches
Go on girl, go on, give us something gruesome we require your grief,
the thugs help the thieves as they're trying to rob
the words from her gob and take the swords to the innocents

If you were there, beware the serpent soul pinchers.
Can't you sense she was never meant to fill column inches
haven’t you had enough, what you're trying to dig up Isn't there to be dug,
the thieves help the thugs as they're trying beat the good grace of a sweetheart
Out to the point she'll comply

Why leave her on her own, If I'd have known, then I wouldn't have said it
I wouldn't have said it, if I would have known
Why leave her on her own. If i predicted tears then i wouldn't have said it,
I wouldn't have said it, if i would have known

There's a circle of witches, ambitiously vicious they are
And our attempts to remind them of reason won't get us that far
I don't know what it is that they want
I don't know what it is that they want
But I haven't got it to give and she hasn't got it to give


9 The Bad Thing:

Do the bad thing,
Take off your wedding ring,
But it wont make it that much easier, it might make it worse,

the nights like a whirlwind,
Somebody's girlfriend's is talking to me but its alright,
She's saying that he’s not gonna slap me or try to attack me,
He’s not the jealous type,
and I only need to get half an excuse and I’m away,
But when there’s no excuses that’s much easier to say,
I've been before, but all these capers make us too good for her to ignore,
She's talking but I’m not entirely sure

Do the bad thing,
Take off your wedding ring,
But it wont make it that much easier, it might make it worse,

A sudden disheartener somebody's partner's talking to me,
But I don’t know that is what she is, and she murmurs things to confirm that the tragedy is true,
And I knew 'how could she not, she could have anyone she wants,
And I’m struggling to think of an immediate response,
Like I don’t mind, be a big mistake, for you to wait, and have me waste your time,
Really love its fine, said really love it's fine.

And then the third time it occurred that there was something to destroy,
I knew before the invitation that there was this boy,
Oh but she carried on suggesting a struggle to refuse,
She said it was the red wine this time, but that is no excuse


10 Old Yellow bricks:

Old yellow bricks, Love's a risk,
Quite the little Escapologist
Looked so miffed when you wished for a thousand places better than this,

You are the fugitive but you don’t know what you're running from,
You cant kid us and you couldn’t trick anyone,
Houdini, love you don’t know what you're running away from,

Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up? Blinded by nostalgia,
Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up

She was enraged by the way that the emperors were trapped in the cage,
and her days she deemed dull leading to nights reading beer bottles,

You're such a fugitive but you don’t know what you're running from,
You cant kid us and you couldn’t trick anyone,
Houdini, love you don’t know what you're running away from,

Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up? Blinded by nostalgia,
Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up!

You're at a loss just because, It wasn’t all that you thought it was,
You are the fugitive but you don’t know what you're running away from,

She said I want to sleep in a city that never wakes up and revel in nostalgia,
I know I said who wants to sleep in a city that never wakes up but,
Dorothy was right though

12 505:

I'm going back to 505, If its a 7 hour flight or a 45 minute drive,
In my imagination you're waiting lying on your side With your hands between your thighs

Stop and wait a sec,
when you look at me like that my darling what did you expect,
I’d probably still adore you with your hands around my neck or I did last time I checked,

Not shy of a spark,
The knife twists at the thought that I should fall short of the mark,
Frightened by the bite though its no harsher than the bark,
The middle of adventure, such a perfect place to start,

I'm going back to 505, If its a 7 hour flight or a 45 minute drive,
In my imagination you're waiting lying on your side With your hands between your thighs

But I crumble completely when you cry,
It seems like once again you've had to greet me with goodbye,
I’m always just about to go and spoil the surprise, take my hands off of you’re eyes too soon,

I'm going back to 505, If its a 7 hour flight or a 45 minute drive,
In my imagination you're waiting lying on your side With your hands between your thighs and a smile

Strangely I still keep getting emails correcting those lyrics.
I think they are correct as they were copied from a lyrics sheet.

Well apparently it was someone over at arcticmonkeys.com who copied them in, so i'm guessin he may have edited a few bits possibly? which seems a bit stupid.

I think THIAC has a few wrong bits like:

instead of 'Wriggling around an incident you wont forget'

replaced with 'Wriggling around in incidence you wont forget'

i could be wrong tho!

That sounds wrong to me, it doesn't really make much sense.
I'd expect they lyrics on that sheet are correct, I'll try and get hold of a copy of the sheet.
