This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In)

Re-typed for easier reading:

1. THE CLINCHER
TOUCH
I’LL STAND FOR NOTHING LESS
OR NEVER STAND AGAIN
THESE ARE THE LIMITS WHEN ONE’S BURIED
THIS BODY’S LEFT THE SOUL
COULD WE HAVE KNOWN
NEVER WOULD I, HELPED TO NAIL DOWN
CAREFUL OF DRIFTING OFF
NOW LOSING TASTE AND TOUCH
TURNING A PALE BLUE LEANING IN TO SAY
THIS BODY’S LEFT THE SOUL
THE BRAIN NEEDS OXYGEN
CAN’T SNEAK AROUND THIS BAIT
HIS CATACOMB HAS GOT ME BY THE CHIN
THIS BODY’S LEFT THE SOUL
(CHORUS)
COULD WE HAVE KNOWN
NEVER WOULD I, HELPED TO NAIL DOWN
WITH NOTHING TO GAIN
HERE’S THE CLINCHER, THIS SHOULD BE YOU
NOW SATURATE, AND TOUCH
NOW SATURATE, THE EARTH
(LAST CHORUS)
THIS HAPPENED TO BE, NEVER CHANGING
HOLDING INSIDE, THE PHOBIA VIEWED
MADE COLD AND CRIPPLED, ENDING IT ALL

2. GET SOME
I TRIED AN IDEA FOR NO REASON
KEEP THE SUN OFF OUR SHOULDERS
CRAWLING BACK TO
(CHORUS)
A BLACK OUT
TOUCHING NEW LIFE
FACE DOWN
SET THE PACE AGAIN
THE DRIVE THE IDEA STILL EXISTING
SAT AND SHUDDERED BROKE THE PATTERN
FALLING INWARD
IN AND DOWN UP AND OUT
LET IT GO FOLLOW WAY BACK
CALL IT OFF ANY DAY ANYWAY
MAKE YOU FEEL THIS
BLACK OUT
TOUCHING NEW LIFE
FACE DOWN
SET THE PACE AGAIN
(BRIDGE)
DON’T TAKE THE FALL
WE’D HATE TO SEE
THAT’S ENTERTAINMENT
GET SOME
EYES ON THE GOAL
LAST ONE TO GET
IS PASSSED OVER LOOKED OVER
NEVER REHEARSE
THEY’VE SPIKED THE WATER
IT’S IN THE BLOOD
GET SOME
WE’VE UNDERESTIMATED
HOW CAN I
GET SOME
HOW CAN I
GET SOME
(OUTRO)
A BLACKOUT
COULD THIS BE THE ONE

3. VITAMIN R (LEADING US ALONG)
SOME WILL LEARN, MANY DO
COVER UP OR SPREAD IT OUT
TURN AROUND HAD ENOUGH
PICK AND CHOOSE OR PASS IT ON
BUYING IN HEADING FOR
SUFFER NOW OR SUFFER THEN
IT’S BAD ENOUGH, I WANT THE FEAR
NEED THE FEAR CAUSE HE’S ALONE
AND HE HAS BECOME
(CHORUS)
WELL IF THEY’RE MAKING IT, MAKING IT
THEN THEY’RE PUSHING IT, PUSHING IT
AND THEY’RE LEADING US ALONG
THE HASSLE OF, HASSLE OF
ALL THE SCREAMING FITS, SCREAMING FITS
THAT PANIC MAKES REMORSE
AFTER ALL, WHAT’S THE POINT
COURSE LEVITATION IS POSSIBLE
IF YOU’RE A FLY, ACHIEVED AND GONE
THERE’S TIME FOR THIS AND SO MUCH MORE
IT’S TYPICAL CREATE A WORLD
A SPECIAL PLACE OF MY DESIGN
TO NEVER COPE OR NEVER CARE
JUST USE THE KEY CAUSE HE’S ALONE
(BRIDGE)
OVER AND OVER A SLAVE BECAME
OVER AND OVER A SLAVE BECAME
OVER AND OVER A SLAVE BECAME
OVER AND OVER IT’S SLAVE
(3RD CHORUS)
WELL IF THEY’RE MAKING IT,
THEN THEY’RE PUSHING IT,
AND THEY’RE LEADING US ALONG
THE HASSLE OF
ALL THE SCREAMING FITS
THAT PANIC HELD BEFORE
WELL IF THEY’RE MAKING IT
AND THEY’RE PUSHING IT
AND THEY’RE LEADING US ALONG
LIKE A CANCER CAUSED
ALL THE SCREAMING FITS
AND THEIR PANIC MAKES REMORSE

4. STILL RUNNING
SAY IT SAY IT
SAY IT SAY IT
ALONG YOU SUPPORT
THEN EMBRACE ANOTHER REASON TO SEE
SUCCESS WE UNFOLD
CLUTCHING FIRM BETTING HE PANICS FOR SURE
SAY IT SAY IT THAT IT’S DONE
I WANT IT NEED IT DONE
THE LIE, WANT TO KNOW
HAS IT MET, EXPECTATIONS SO FAR
(CHORUS)
STILL RUNNING NEVER WAKING UP
TO SAY IT
STILL RUNNING NEVER WAKING UP
SAY IT
(BRIDGE)
SELFISHLY WALKING THROUGH KILLING THE ANGLES
PICKING AND CHOOSING TO SCREW
ALL OF US ONE BY ONE
SO RUN MAKE AMENDS
FEELING TORN BOY YOU BETTER BE SURE

5. BREACH BIRTH
BE BRAVE RESHAPE
CAN’T FORCE ALL INTO MOLDS
PASSING OUT SCHEMATICS
FORCING ALL INTO MOLDS
ONCE MORE ABOUT TO CHANGE
SOME TRY AND FALL BENEATH MOLDS
WELL IT’S YOUR RIGHT SO
(CHORUS)
I’LL KEEP ON THIS PATH
TURNING AROUND BENDING THE SHAPES
CUTTING IT IN
WE COULD EXCEL BEYOND
THE LATTER FOOLS
START A NEW TONE
HATING THE SAME
EMPTY THE ROOM
SO CREATE, RECLAIM
SOVEREIGN SHAPES TEMPTING US
RATION OUT, THEIR SCHEMATICS
DARE WE LIVE WITHOUT MOLDS
SO FAR WHAT’S LEFT BETWEEN
THEY TRY AND FAIL BENEATH MOLDS
(BRIDGE)
FEEL LOCKED IN A ROOM
AND STARTING TO CHOKE
ENTICING THE SHAME
AWAKEN A WORLD OUR OWN

6. PANIC PRONE
GAVE IN AGAIN
THE BASTARD
CAN’T KEEP REFUSING RIGHTS
SO HE’LL LOAN THE CASH
BUT THE SIN
IS ON THE HANDS OF YOU
SO TO CARE OR
PLEAD SILENCE, WEAK HANDS ARE CALLING
THERE’S CLOSE ENOUGH
AND THERE’S TOO FAR
IT WON’T CHANGE AN EMPTY STARE
BUT I CAN’T SEEM TO END
THESE IMAGES
HAUNTINGLY LOOKS LIKE HELL
(CHORUS)
SO TO CARE OR
PLEAD SILENCE
WEAK HANDS ARE CALLING
(LAST CHORUS)
TO END THIS CATASTROPHIC SCENE
AWAKE AND BREATHE IN
(BRIDGE)
COME, ENTER THE FOREIGN
FACE, ALL THAT’S SHAMEFUL
CHEAT, MAY THE PAST FIND
OUT, SEPARATING

7. ANOTHER KNOW IT ALL
DAMN YOU’RE SO DULL
STILL NEED TO BORROW YOUR HATE
CHANGE WHAT THEY CAN
PERSUADE US BACK UNDER COVER
OH OLD YOU’RE SO OVER
WHO MADE YOU KING OF THE AGES
TENDING THE WOUNDS
THINKING OF ADDING ANOTHER
(CHORUS)
BUT THE
CHOSEN NEVER WRONG
HE SAT HOLDING
SEVERAL THOUGHTS
I’LL TAKE ANYTHING
THAT’S NOT BOLTED DOWN
TRICKING US IN, DON’T GET ALONG IF THEY’RE BROTHERS
SO PHASING IT OUT, CORRECTING VISION WITH FISTS
AND DRAWING A LINE, STILL GIVE IT LESS THAN A WEEK
CHECKING THE WOUNDS, THINKING OF ADDING ANOTHER
(BRIDGE)
FREE WHAT’S BOLTED DOWN

8. TUG-O-WAR
FEED THE CUT AND GET IN LINE
TO LIVE AND BURN IS TUG-O-WAR
RAPED
GO BACK AND FORTH UNTIL IT’S LEARNED
TO SUFFER NOW OR NOTHING’S GAINED
THEN WAKE WITHIN A FREEZING SWEAT
PUSH AND PULL, COLLECTING DOUBT
STARTING SEEDS
(CHORUS)
LOST INSPIRATION, PANIC ON THE RISE
A SEVERED ATTEMPT IGNORED
THE REASON NEVER OUTWEIGHS THE TRUTH
SO BACKING UP AND LEAN AGAINST
THE LIARS CLUB COMETH SHAME
WASTING FARTHER COLLECTING DOUBT
STARTING SEEDS
(BRIDGE)
SO HAND IT OFF, DON’T CARE ENOUGH
CAUSE IGNORANCE, IS IN BLISSFUL REACH
LOST INSPIRATION, PANIC ON THE RISE
A SEVERED ATTEMPT IGNORED
LOST INSPIRATION, NEVER PLAYED THE GAME
A SEVERED ATTEMPT IGNORED
FEED, THE LAST HEAD TRIP

9. TO RETURN
TO RETURN TO THE COLD
IT ISN’T MUCH FUN
TO TOUCH THE TREES NO ONE HAS KNOWN
GO REST YOUR HEAD
CAUSE YOU CAN’T MISS THIS
POOR BOY BECAME
A SLAVE TO USE
NOW DESPAIR MOVES IN SO CLOSE
TOO MANY YEARS FREE AT LAST
HE DIDN’T KNOW SO LEARNED TO SPEAK
HE CLEARS HIS THROAT
CAUSE YOU CAN’T MISS THIS
(CHORUS)
POOR BOY BECAME
A SLAVE TO USE
REBUILD WHAT’S LEFT
OF THIS CHILD, SO WEAK
SORRY, CHANGES, TRAMPLE THE PLAN
DEATH, STORES, VICTIMS
ONCE MORE
KEEP ON BURNIN’ THROUGH THE NOOSE
TO RETURN, TO THE COLD
IT ISN’T MUCH, BUT I’M FREE AT LAST

10. EMOTIONAL DROUGHT
IT’S POSSIBLE THAT THE WORST
OF THE INSIDE
COULD TAKE OUR PENCILS AWAY
END CREATING
CAN’T LET THE TEACHERS LAY WASTE
OF A NEW MIND
PREVENT EMOTIONAL DROUGHT
AND WATCH THE PACE QUICKEN
TRY TO NEVER TOUCH
TRY TO NEVER TOUCH
(CHORUS)
WON’T KEEP HOLDING BACK MY CONSCIOUS
REALIZE
THERE’S A CHOICE TO NOT END UP LIKE YOU
NOT END UP LIKE YOU
LET’S TURN OUR WRETCHED DEBATES INTO ACTION
BY DIPLOMACY GAIN, BACK A HANDSHAKE
TIED AND UNABLE TO TEND, TO THE WOUNDS THAT WERE MADE
SO MUCH CLOSER TO SHAME WE SEE BUT NEVER TOUCH
(BRIDGE)
SEARCH
FOR
TRUTH
ONE MORE MAN
TEARING AT THE THROAT OF
NEVER DROPPED AS FAST AS
COLORING THE FATE OF
IS BETTER THAN FATE OF YOU

11. BEND THE BRACKET
SO THE WATER’S THICKENING
HIS COLLAR’S PULLED, BEGIN TO BE AWARE
IT’S ON, THAT HE NEEDS TO FOCUS
BEYOND THAT MAN, HE BRINGS A WORLD OF PAIN
CAUSE,
(CHORUS)
THE WAR IS ON, TOO WEAK TO MOVE
CALL IT OFF, SORRY REFUSED
SO WE BEND THE BRACKET
SHOVE IT DOWN ANYTHING TO MAKE IT FIT
IT’S ON, AND BEING FOOLISH WON’T COVER UP
EXPOSING THEM AS FAKES
SO BOREDOM CAPTURED ANOTHER FOOLISH
SHREDDING HIM TO BITS IT’S ON
AND THE MORE WE TENSE UP, AVOIDING PAIN
YOU’LL NEVER LEARN A THING
