down is the new up






get yourself together
let the light pour in
pour yourself a hot bath
pour yourself a drink
nothing's gonna happen
without warning

down is the new up
what is up, buttercup?
down is the new up
is the new up

your services
are not required
your future's bleak
you're so last week

ladies and gentlemen
without a safety net
I shall now perform
a 180 flip flop
I shall now amputate
I shall now contort

because down is the new up
what if I just flip flop?
down is the new up
down is the new up
down is the new up
is the new up

you crawled off and left us
you crawled off and left us
you bastard
you bastard

you're on candid camera
the chink in your armor
topsy turvy town
topsy turvy town

shake your pockets out
pass it on
pass it down
topsy turvy town
topsy turvy town

you crawled off and left us
you crawled off and left us
you bastard
you bastard

you crawled off and left us

(water)

get yourself together
let the light pour in
pour yourself a hot bath
pour yourself a drink

nothing's gonna happen without warning

so down is the new up
what is up?
just flip-flop

down is the new up
is the new up

(chorus):
won't you be my girl?
won't you be my girl?

your services
are not required
your future's bleak
your so last week

ladies and gentlemen
without a safety net
I shall now perform a 180 flip-flop
I shall now amputate
I shall now contort

because down is the new up
what if I just flip-flop?

down is the new up
is the new up

(chorus)
you crawled down and left us
you crawled down and left us
you bastard
you bastard

you're on candid camera
a chink in your armour
topsy turvy town
topsy turvy town

shake your pockets out
pass it on
pass it down
topsy turvy town
topsy turvy town


note: 'pour yourself a hot bath/pour yourself a drink', 'down is the new up black is the new black', 'all on candid camera', 'the chink in your armour', 'while people are carrying tongueing fucking drinking all on candid camera.',

"pick you up by the heels" "shake your pockets out"
"do a headstand" "YES! its true" "down is the new up"
"better learn the ropes" "learn to tie yer own knots" "down is the new up"
"give keys" "everything that the whole place needs"
"get with the program" "down is my road"

sundaycomedown
empty streets
ant powder

tennis ball
swollen lip
creamscryingcream
long long long long
hold me cool down

firework rocket
a braver man than eye

sunday papers
artichoke broken hearts
vodka
railings cling clang
the sound of empty bottles
berlin
in a sack
hang on
heavy metal

change
digital channel

'this is a stitch up'

they are only being nice because they want something

the chink in your armour
you fatal flaw
spitting an obligatory compliment to make me feel at ease

lunatic
soothsayer
naysayer
hypocrit
be amusing
be amused
makes notes
say nothing
admit everything
admit nothing

politics is poison
words are blunt instruments
you give nothing

so receive nothing
i am imagining
while people are carrying
tongueing
fucking
drinking

all on candid camera
right now this camera is saying nothing
