The Hoosiers Weirdo

It’s a miniature explosion

From a toy hand grenade

It’s just a scratch you could patch up

Before it fades

You don’t stop for anyone

And you only stop when you’re done

The fire in your belly burns in your eyes

But it’s not a war

It’s just a little conversation

It’s not a war

You’re just a weirdo

It was a misplaced phrase

Cut short our happy phase

But it’s just a graze

Not a war wound

And so you sneer at the bright side

And you pile up the sandbags

When you only need look in my eyes

But it’s not a war

It’s just a little conversation

It’s not a war

You’re just a weirdo, a weirdo, a weirdo

You’re just a weirdo, a weirdo, a weirdo

You’re just a weirdo, a weirdo, a weirdo

It’s not a war

It’s not a war

It’s just a little conversation

We’ve been here before

You’re just a weirdo, a weirdo, a weirdo

You’re just a weirdo, a weirdo, a weirdo

I love you my weirdo, my weirdo, my weirdo

It’s not a war

It’s just a little conversation

The Hoosiers Used To Be Love

Used to be

Used to be love

But it doesn’t matter, no it doesn’t matter

Used to be

Used to be love

But it doesn’t matter, now it doesn’t matter at all

Let’s make up our life

I’ll pretend I’m doing fine

Blissful sleepless night

Oh it just won’t let it show that I can’t let it go

Whisper in my ear (in my ear)

Your touch sweet paranoia

I am, I’m so hopeless

Got blissed stars, hope that you remember when it

Used to be

Used to be love

But it doesn’t matter, now it doesn’t matter

But it used to be

Used to be love

But it doesn’t matter, now it doesn’t matter

But it used to be

Used to be love

But it doesn’t matter, now it doesn’t matter at all

Change your frequency (frequency), to a different wavelength

Broken sympathy

And I just can’t let it show that I can’t let it go

Thousand sleepless nights (sleepless nights)

Took comfort in confusion

I am, I’m so hopeless

You got blissed stars, hope that you remember when it

Used to be

Used to be love

But it doesn’t matter, now it doesn’t matter

But it used to be

Used to be love

But it doesn’t matter, now it doesn’t matter

But it used to be

Used to be love

But it doesn’t matter, now it doesn’t matter at all

Tell me something, but that could be a chance

That could be a chance

But I keep on hoping

Lie, you tell me something, but that could be a chance

That could be a chance

Sleep, hope, a chance

Used to be

Used to be love

But it doesn’t matter, now it doesn’t matter

But it used to be

Used to be love

But it doesn’t matter, now it doesn’t matter

But it used to be

Used to be love

But it doesn’t matter, now it doesn’t matter

But it used to be

Used to be love

But it doesn’t matter, now it doesn’t matter at all

The Hoosiers Worst Case Scenario

You got out the wrong side of bed and liked it

The only love you get is unrequited

Mourning Monday, all week long’s not healthy

But being happy’s only for the wealthy

You can’t see past the worst case scenario

You’d be happier instead if you’d stayed in bed

I pray one day I’ll live to see you break a smile

Wallow in your miserableness as you tend to

You’ve mastered looking unimpressed, do I offend you?

Mourning Monday, all week long’s not healthy

I pray one day I’ll live to see you break a smile

(You can’t see past—you can’t see past worst case scenario.)

(You can’t see past—you can’t see past—)

Oh, oh, oh

The Hoosiers Money To Be Made

Put up your barricades

There’s money to be made

Continue your charade

Money to be made

What you’re asking for means the world to me

You draw close as you whisper precisely

Precisely

Your safety is assured,

Behind those eggshell walls

Of yours

Your safety is assured,

Behind those eggshell walls

Of yours

Friends and family fly by on wings of faith

Faithlessly I don’t recognise a face

Not a single face

Take this sorry soul

Made enough of a mess on my own

On my own

Put up your barricades

There’s money to be made

The Hoosiers Worried About Ray

Truth be told, the truth be told

I’m worried about the future holds, the future holds

I’m starting to worry about Ray

Truth be told, the truth be told

I’m worried about the future holds, the future holds

I’m seriously worried about Ray

They say the future’s out to get you

You know that I won’t let you fall

They say the future’s out to get you

You know that I won’t let you fall

Truth be told, the truth be told

I’m treading on my tippy toes, my tippy toes

I’m starting to worry about Ray

Truth be told, the truth be told

I’m treading on my tippy toes, my tippy toes

I’m painfully so worried about Ray

They say the future’s out to get you

You know that I won’t let you fall

They say the future’s out to get you

You know that I won’t let you fall

No!

They say the future’s out to get you

You know that I won’t let you fall

They say the future’s out to get you

You know that I won’t let you fall

The future’s out to get you, the future’s out to get you, oh

The future’s out to get you, the future’s out to get you, oh

Truth be told, the truth be told

I’m worried about the future holds, the future holds

I’m so tired of being worried about Ray

The Hoosiers The Most Peculiar Day Of Your Life

I got a problem with the big man

I’m not big he isn’t clever but he leathered me good

And what’s it take to be the big man

Apart from size

Apart from size

And now my problem’s with the policeman

I’m just saying please man can’t you turn a blind eye

An eye for an eye

I said hey, you couldn’t write it

The most peculiar day of your life

I said hey, don’t fight it

Just hope the tunnel ends in a light

I got a problem ’cause you’re laid back

You see I wanna pick a fight every now and again

Don’t think you’re safe ’cause we go way back

You say that’s ok, I don’t mind

The mirror’s wrong upon reflection

I think I know myself less the longer I stare

I stare, I’m aware, self-aware

Out on my ear

I’m just another drop in the lake

Let me make myself clear

For you appear to be struggling to take

Wise words could never reach us

How could we ever read the lipless, lipless

The Hoosiers Handsome Girls And Pretty Boys

She had a facelift to keep her chin up

She was forever feelin’ low

Seventeen-ninety-nine from Argos

She had a discount code

He had a Big Ben heart

An only child with a ten-ton aorta

But the pressure, the pressure

Was enough to oxygenate the moon

His mother wanted a daughter

With a face to light up the room

Always chasin’ the rapture

They beg you to clap your hands

Make a lot of noise

For the handsome girls and the pretty boys

Hungry for adoration

They beg you to raise your arms

Like you’ve got a choice

They rule this world so we lift our voice

To the handsome girls and the pretty boys

They met in Knightsbridge but they never hit it off

Their feelings were soft as snow

Bone-dry, sawdust-filled decanters

From Atlanta

They were just for show

They were just for show

Always chasin’ the rapture

They beg you to clap your hands

Make a lot of noise

For the handsome girls and the pretty boys

Hungry for adoration

They beg you to raise your arms

Like you’ve got a choice

They rule this world so we lift our voice

To the handsome girls and the pretty boys

Always chasin’ the rapture

They beg you to clap your hands

Make a lot of noise

For the handsome girls and the pretty boys

Hungry for adoration

They beg you to raise your arms

Like you’ve got a choice

Give in to sin and just rejoice

For the leaders to whom we lift our voice

You better clap your hands

Make a lot of noise

For the handsome girls and the pretty boys

The Hoosiers Clinging On For Life

I need you to reach me

Teach me how to love

I need you to reach me

Teach me how to love

‘Cause I must have got it wrong

If I had love then it’s gone

I’ve been living without it for oh so long

And that’s the way it goes

I suppose

Made enough mistakes

Between two of us to sink this thing

We’re still clinging on for life

Made enough mistakes

Between two of us to sink this thing

We’re still clinging on for life

I need you to reach me

Teach me how to love

I need you to reach me

Teach me how to love

Must have got it wrong

If I had love then it’s gone

I’ve been living without it for oh so long

And that’s the way it goes

I suppose

Made enough mistakes

Between two of us to sink this thing

We’re still clinging on for life

Made enough mistakes

Between two of us to sink this thing

We’re still clinging on for life

And I must have got it wrong

If I had love then it’s gone

I’ve been living without it for oh so long

And that’s the way it goes

When your head can but suppose

And instead of answers

It’s full of “I don’t knows”

And that’s the way it goes

I suppose

The Hoosiers Eye Contact

Don’t make eye contact

You should know better than that

You should not give what you’ll only be wanting back

I should know better than to let you attract

Me when my guard is down

But it’s always down for you

Yes it’s always down for you

Don’t make eye contact

I should know better than to fall in love

The Hoosiers Killer

I hate my work, but I’m in control

I’m fearless now, but it cost my soul

Save yourselves, the moon is full

Under its power, gravitational pull

Blood red lips, they shake like leaves

You’re flesh and blood, but what’s underneath?

Don’t turn out the lights

Kiss yourself goodnight ’cause there’s a killer

And he’s coming after you

Kiss yourself goodnight, tonight

‘Cause there’s a killer and he’s coming after you

It’s alright to scream

I’m screaming too,

Why’d you think I do the things I do?

For shadows haunted me like ghosts,

So I became what I feared the most

I conduct fear like electricity

A man made monstrosity

Don’t turn out the lights

Kiss yourself goodnight ’cause there’s a killer

And he’s coming after you

Kiss yourself goodnight, tonight

‘Cause there’s a killer and he’s coming after you

Oh oh, oh oh

Don’t turn out the lights

Kiss yourself goodnight ’cause there’s a killer

And he’s coming after you

Kiss yourself goodnight, tonight

‘Cause there’s a killer and he’s coming after you

Don’t turn out the lights, kiss yourself goodnight

‘Cause theres a killer and he’s coming after you

Don’t turn out the lights, tonight ’cause there’s a killer.

Oh oh, oh oh
