Few minor adjustments to Lost Kitten, based on what you guys transcribed. This is the version I'll be posting in the first post.


Don't say yes if you can't say no
Victim of the system, say it isn't so
Squatted on the doorstep, swallow that blow
Leaving without you, can't say no

Halfway starts with happiness for me
Halfway house, lost kitten in the street
Hit me where it hurts, I'm coming home to lose
Kitten on the catwalk, high heeled shoes

No more hot-headed Saturdays
They got it, they want it, they give it away
Tell me one thing, you would never do
I was looking for a hooker when I found you

You've got my eyes
You've got my eyes
You'll never be mine
Ah
But you've got my eyes

When you lie I cover it up
When you hide I cover it up
When you cry I cover it up
When you come undone I cover it up

I'm so pent up I was coming on to you
Happy in the night time, howling at the moon
Sipping on a cocktail, drinking in the loo
There's something about you I hold on to

You've got my eyes
You've got my eyes
You'll never be mine
Ah
But you've got my eyes

When you lie I cover it up
When you hide I cover it up
When you cry I cover it up
When you're blind I cover it up
When you lie I cover it up
When you hide I cover it up
When you cry I cover it up
When you come undone I cover it up

They got it, they want it, they give it away
They got it, they want it, they give it away
They got it, they want it, they give it away
They got it, they want it, they give it away

When you lie I cover it up
When you hide I cover it up
When you cry I cover it up
When you come undone I cover it up

(They got it, they want it, they give it away
They got it, they want it, they give it away
They got it, they want it, they give it away
They got it, they want it, they give it away)

The Void

All night
Like a child
I stayed up to prove I could keep up

All night
Like a fool
I stayed up to prove I could keep up
With you

All night
They plan ...

All night
sing along with the band that plays in your head
------------------------------------------------------------------
These'll be sufficiently annoying to transcribe/figure out how to put up. This was what I thought I heard, but who honestly knows what they really sing.

All night
No plan; life is grand while you're still in the void.

All night
Sing along with the band while you're losing your voice.

All night
No plan; life is grand while you're (?)pulling my choice(?).

All night
Sing along with the band while you're still in the void.

I think it might be

From MMI directly:

WHEN I GET TO THE BOTTOM OF IT I SINK... SEEMS LIKE NOTHING I SAID EVER MEANT ANYTHING BUT A HEADLINE OVER MY HEAD... THOUGHT I MADE A STAND… ONLY MADE A SCENE... THERE'S NO FEAST FOR THE UNDERFED... ALL THE UNKNOWN DYING OR DEAD… KEEP SHOWING UP IN MY DREAMS... THEY STAND AT THE END OF MY BED... HAVE I EVER REALLY HELPED ANYBODY BUT MYSELF? TO BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF SONGS... TO BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF GIRLS... THOUGH THE POINT WE'RE MAKING IS GONE... PLAY IT STRIPPED DOWN TO MY THONG... I'LL SHUT UP AND CARRY ON... THE SCREAM BECOMES A YAWN... OUR PARENTS DAUGHTERS AND SONS... BELIEVED IN THE POWER OF SONGS... WHAT IF THOSE DAYS ARE GONE? MY MEMORY IS STRONG... ANYONE NOT DYING IS DEAD... AND BABY IT WON'T BE LONG... SO SHUT UP AND CARRY ON... THE SCREAM BECOMES A YAWN... I'LL SHUT UP AND CARRY ON... THE SCREAM BECOMES A YAWN... BABY, WHEREVER YOU ARE... BABY, WHATEVER YOU DO... FASTER THAN YOU THINK ...
TIME STAGGERS ON

Wanderlust
---
I've been sleepwalking
Through the railway station
Wake me up
When they call my destination

Where I've been
I was bound to leave behind
All device
And all disease was mine

Oh (?), speeding out of reach
Oh (?), you're the one I had to meet

I never wanted to go home (Wanderlust will carry us on)
There was nothing there for me (Wanderlust will carry us on)
In a high-rise on my own (????? on highways for so long)
Looking out in a mirrored balcony (Wanderlust will, carry us on)

Will there ever be a place for you and me?

(Wanderlust)

I'm rolling in
For seven day weekends
Living up again
To my own reputation

Can you comfort me?
'Cause I've got no armor
Keep moving on down the line
Keep on going further

Oh (?), speeding out of reach
Oh (?), you're the one I had to meet

I never wanted to go home (Wanderlust will carry us on)
There was nothing there for me (Wanderlust will carry us on)
In a high-rise on my own (????? highways so long)
Looking out in a mirrored balcony (Wanderlust will carry, carry, carry us on)

I don't know where to go
Now I got nowhere to hide (Nowhere to go, nowhere to be)

I don't know where to go
Now I got nowhere to be (Oh wanderlust will carry us on)

Walk fifty city-blocks down
Where they always find us (Wanderlust, will carry us on)

Will there ever be a place for you and me?

(Wanderlust will carry us on)

Will there ever be a place or you and me?

The Wanderlust

I've been sleepwalking
Through the railway station
Wake me up
When they call my destination

Where I've been
I was bound to leave behind
All device
And all disease was mine

Oh
Speeding out of reach
Oh
You're the one I had to meet

I never wanted to go home
(Wanderlust will carry us on)
There was nothing there for me
(Wanderlust will carry us on)
In a high-rise on my own
(... the highways for so long)
Looking out in a mirrored balcony
(Wanderlust will, carry us on)

Will there ever be a place for you and me?
(Wanderlust)

I'm rolling in
For a seven day weekend
Living up again
To my own reputation

Can you cover me?
'Cause I've got no armor
Keep moving on down the line
Keep on going further

Oh
Speeding out of reach
Oh
You're the one I had to meet

I never wanted to go home
(Wanderlust will carry us on)
There was nothing there for me
(Wanderlust will carry us on)
In a high-rise on my own
(I've been known to (?)pace(?) the highways so long)
Looking out in a mirrored balcony
(Wanderlust will carry, carry, carry us on)

I don't know where to go
Now I got nowhere to hide
(Nowhere to go, nowhere to be)

I don't know where to go
Now I got nowhere to be
(Oh wanderlust will carry us on)

Walk fifty city-blocks down
Where they always find us
(Wanderlust
Will carry us on)

Will there ever be a place for you and me?
(Wanderlust will carry us on)

Will there ever be a place or you and me?
-----------------------------------------------------

This is how I hear The Wanderlust. It ain't perfect.

Nothing But Time

Steal once
Pay twice

Advice to heed
I won't
I might

Advice to heed
Steal once
Pay twice

Advice to heed
I won't
I might

Advice to heed

Steal once
Pay twice

Advice to heed
I won't
I might

Advice to heed
Steal once
Pay twice

Advice to heed
I won't
I might

Advice to heed

You always said that love was not enough
Always on the move

Advice to heed

And even though we long to shut it up
We could never choose

Advice to heed

Now we know there's nothing awaiting us
Better than the truth

Advice to heed

I wanted to be part of something
I got nothing but time
So the future is mine
(Advice to heed)

I wanted to be part of something
I got nothing but time
So the future is mine
(Advice to heed)

I wanted to be part of something
I got nothing but time
So the future is mine

All the lyrics except for The Wanderlust are now up in the first post. I think they're all more or less accurate.

Hmmm, maybe for Wanderlust...?
I’ve met all my friends on highways for so long

... Or something like that.
