Lyrics - Everything In Time [B-sides, Rarities, Remixes]


Big Distraction

You’re my concentration
Everything else is a bore
I’ve got myself snagged on you
No self-control now

All that I want to do
Slep in the shadow of you
For the rest of my life

Now we can chisel
Chisel off built up walls
Of pain deposited from past lovers
Memories they can sleep
And we can live comfortably
For the rest of our lives

Wrong or right
Shipwrecked into you
Situation is foolish
Put up a fight
You’re my big distraction
Obvious companion
I’m falling fast
Like an avalanche

Indentured servant
A slave to a slave
Thank god for my hopeful heart
And for mutual feelings
Look how it’s balanced now
Maybe we’ll just settle down
For the rest of our lives

Wrong or right
Shipwrecked into you
Situation is foolish
Put up a fight

You’re my big distraction
Obvious companion
I’m falling fast
Like an avalanche

Look how it’s balanced now
Maybe we’ll just settle down
For the rest of our lives

Leftovers

Thinking what should I do now I don’t have you
Facing my demotion, I’m just a fish in your ocean
Has been that’s what I am with no backstage wrist band
I’m freaking, seconds of you, that’s not what I’m used to

Feed, feed them all to me
I’m careful with my stuff
What’s your policy?
First one’s free

I save ‘em up, I put ‘em in my pocket
I save ‘em up, I put ‘em in a jar
I save ‘em up, I’m going to need ‘em for later
I save ‘em up, and then they’ll go real far

Hand me downs, I’ll take downs
I’ll take the leftovers
Cold ones and the old ones, better than no one

Feed, feed them all to me
I’m careful with my stuff
What’s your policy?
First one’s free

I save ‘em up, I put ‘em in my pocket
I save ‘em up, I put ‘em in a jar
I save ‘em up, I need ‘em for later
I save ‘em up, and then they’ll go real far

I time it out, I gotta be real careful
I time it out, I get ‘em right on time
I time it out, get ‘em when I need him
Time is up, what’s left is over
It’s over
I can never have enough
I can never have enough
I sure am greedy, hand ‘em over to me

I save ‘em up, I put ‘em in my pocket
I save ‘em up, I put ‘em in a jar
I save ‘em up, gonna need ‘em for later
I save ‘em up, then they’ll go real far
I time it out, I’ll be real careful
I time it out, I get ‘em right on time
I time it out, I get ‘em what I need him
Time is up, what’s left is over

Under Construction

Success serenades me
And pressures at the door
Broken promise debris
Lie around from my mind war
And my accomplishments interrogating me
Today’s become tomorrow before I wanted it to be

Desperate discussions
Disturb the destruction
I assigned in my mind
I’ll be fine, I’ll be fine

‘Cause I’m under construction everyone
So you’ll have to mind the mess
I’m under some construction

I always had to try harder
I never really could keep up
Sitting in the corner
With my illness and bad luck
But in this humble place
I’m feeling like red wine
And I hope to get better with some time
I’ll be fine, in some time I’ll be fine

‘Cause I’m under construction everyone
So you’ll have to mind the mess
I’m under some construction

Correction
Modification
Alteration
Construction

And the rituals that soothe and disgust me
Will be gone in some time, I’ll be fine
In some time I’ll be fine, I’ll be fine

‘Cause I’m under construction everyone
So you’ll have to mind the mess
I’m under some construction

Construction
Feel better with some construction


Beauty Contest

Damsel in distress is quite submissive
Look how sun burnt my vanity is
Effeminate human creature
Superficial seducing detour
I’m going to the mall for the cookie-cutter
The ugly duckling will always suffer
Contaminated standards, don’t try to fight it
I better get back on my diet

Obsessed with the beauty contest
Beauty contest
How’d my vanity get such a mess?
Beauty contest
I’m obsessed

Reduce myself, I’ve got the strict restrictions
Not sexy enough without the regulations
Molten point countdown my fading features
Born to blossom and bloom to perish

Obsessed with a beauty contest
Beauty contest
I’ve got to get out of this mess
Beauty contest
I’m obsessed

And I’ve fallen, I can’t help myself
I’m feeling envious of all the rest
Your bringing out the lemming in me
A victim of the cattle-call disease
Not easy to be me
I feel swollen

Obsessed with the beauty contest
Beauty contest
How’d my vanity get such a mess?
Obsessed with a beauty contest

Obsessed with the beauty contest
Beauty contest
I’ve got to get out of this mess
Obsessed with the beauty contest

Obsessed with the beauty contest
Beauty contest
How’d my vanity get such a mess?
Caught up in the beauty contest

And I feel swollen
How’d my vanity get such a mess?

Full Circle

All I’ve ever touched or said to them
Becomes a rehearsal for you, just practice
And too many magic moments to be coincidence
It all comes full circle

I knew someone who knew you
And he introduced me to you
Your ex-girlfriend had a boyfriend
Who kissed my girlfriend who did Adrian

The world keeps on getting
Smaller and smaller
And everything comes ‘round
Full circle, full circle
Six degrees of separation
We all know someone else
It all comes full circle

And you come from England
My ex-boyfriend he is Indian
With a British passport we’re all connected
And everyone is affected

The world keeps on getting
Smaller and smaller
And everything comes ‘round
Full circle, full circle
Six degrees of separation
We all know someone else
It all comes full circle

The world keeps on getting
Smaller and smaller
And everything comes ‘round
Full circle, full circle
Six degrees of separation
We all love someone else
It all comes full circle

Cellophane Boy

And I’m not the judge or the referee
And I can’t accept, ‘cause I am uptight
And the smokes getting into my eyes are burning
My concern is I just might give you my life

And I can’t relate to the hypnotist
And I can’t get close, ‘cause the plastic wrap
And I want to have kids
But their fathers up inside the clouds
The distance between is on my mind

Up until now things have been fine, temporarily
You’re cute but the circumstance has changed
Your substitution method, crutch
Your whole protection from your pain
This presentation of my play
Is to change my cellophane boy

It’s not the 70’s
Let your future fly with me

Up until now things have been fine, temporarily
You’re cute but the circumstance has changed
Your substitution method, crutch
Your whole protection from your pain
This presentation of my play
Is to change my cellophane boy
And I want your habit to be me
Your harbor and your refugee

Everything In Time (Los Angeles)

She asked how we are
She asked if I was all weird again
And of course I am
But I’m trying really hard
So I lied to her
And I was wearing this prisoner face
So deep inside she had to know
Once again I’ve lost control

For everything there is a reason
Everything I hope in time will come

Lying in your bed
I am a refugee you try to love
But the love that he killed
Keeps coming back and haunting me
Am I wasting all of your time
And all my cute days on regrets?
Is it healthy that we met?

Everything always in time will show
Then we will know it will show
Everything always in time will come

Is it wrong holding on
To my best friend my faded lover?
Who knows?

Cinderella hope
And it’s all because he made me laugh
Coincidence or fate
Running towards a catastrophe
Save me

Everything always in time is gone
It’ll be gone, we’ll be gone
Everything always in time will come
Oh it will come, it will come
For everything there is a reason
I believe for everything there is a reason
And everything always in time will come

You're So Foxy

You caught my fall making out on alcohol
An innocent mistake
Falling in love on accident, I didn’t mean to

Constant danger, constant stranger
It started out so sweet
And now we’re both feeling incomplete
I don’t know how much I can take
We’re on, we’re off

We’re knocked down and getting up
We try to fight it, the agony and ecstasy
And it’s painful but it’s worth it
‘Cause you’re so foxy and I think your kinda good for me
you’re so foxy

Mental earthquakes, conversational mistakes
My army of words
I can’t believe you’re crawling back for more out of desire

Destiny or chemicals, emotions are susceptible
And you I can’t resist
I can’t seem to walk away from this
So show me how much you can take, are you in or out?

You’re knocked down and getting up
You kinda like it, the agony and ecstasy
And it’s painful, I’m sorry
But you’re so foxy I can’t let you get away from me
‘Cause you’re so foxy
So get out of my way I’m feeling so in love today
It can’t be understood
And when were feeling good it’s really good
The kind of good that feels like fate
We’re back and forth

We’re knocked down and getting up
We try to fight it, the agony and ecstasy
And it’s painful but it’s your fault
‘Cause you’re so foxy and you got yourself all over me
You’re so foxy

And I can’t take it, it’s hard to take it
I can’t take it
It’s painful but it’s worth it
‘Cause you’re so foxy
I think you must be good for me

Panic

Today is going to be easy
Today ‘cause you’re not around
I’ll leave off my makeup
I’ll sleep in my bed
To pass all the time by

Today ‘cause you’re not around
Today you won’t be around

I concentrate on empty spaces
A passive pondering of blankness
Sit down shut up, controlled obsessions
Your absence it exhausts me

I always panic when I’m left
I always panic when I’m left

Today I feel destructive
Today who cares about myself?
I’ll live in denial
And I’ll beat up my head
And I’ll eat all the chocolate
Today ‘cause you’re not around
Today you won’t be around

I can’t control my feelings
I sip on dreams and choke on real things
Detach myself for preservation
I struggle to not want you

I always panic when I’m left
Is it healthy that we met?
If you stop coming will I forget?
I always panic

Today is going to be simple
Today ‘cause you’re not around
My heart will pound lazy
No one to impress
No smile is required
Today ‘cause you’re not around
Today you won’t be around

New Friend

Mind my own business, I’m on my journey
And I have enough old friends to keep me company
But you way “Hey what’s up, you want to hook up?
You wanna hand with me?
Kick back, relax, feel happy and lazy”

You’re sent to me one time
You come to me two times
Why me? Three times
Well abracadabra now I’ve got a new friend

Let me introduce you to my ne friend
I got a new friend
Let me introduce you to my new friend
I got a new friend

Mind my own business, I’m on my journey

I against I on my journey
Happily interrupted extremes are extreme
So with my brand new friend we touch the boundaries
Like a little kitty’s whiskers, cautiously 

Experimental expressions and downward looks
You come sniff around, I’m not sure what to do
But like a big explosion, magically
Look at me I think I might have found a new friend

Let me introduce you to my new friend
I got a anew friend
Let me introduce you to my new friend
I got a new friend

You’re sent to me one time
You come to me two times
Why me? Three times
Serial monogamy, I got a new friend

Everything In Time (London)

Everything I do
Everything is you

Cinderella hope
And it’s all because you made me laugh
Coincidence or fate
Running towards a catastrophe

And everything I choose
Everything for you
And everything always in time will come
And I believe its all for a reason

She asked how we are
She asked if I was all weird again
And of course I am
But I’m trying really, really hard
So I lied to her
And I was wearing this prisoner face
So deep inside she had to know
I’m feeling lost inside the low
Everything always in time will come

Lying in you bed
I am a refugee you try to love
Am I wasting all of your time
And all my cute days on regret?
Is it healthy that we met?

Everything always in time will come

Is it wrong holding on
To my best friend my faded lover?
Who knows?

Coincidence or fate
Running towards what is meant to be
Save me

Everything always in time will show
Then we will know, it will show
Everything always in time will come
And I believe for everything there is a reason
And everything always in time will…

Everything I do
Everything I do is you
