Floating, I'm floating, I'm gloating, I'm pleased
Watch me, you can't touch me, I'm down on your knees
It's not easy being here with you
There's so much that I would rather do
But that's OK because I'm floating through
The hole
In your heart


Lying, we're lying, in postcards and vans
Crying, you're crying, all over my hands
I don't care about the things you do
It must be horrifying being you
You screwed me up and broke my heart in two
And someday someone will do that for you
There's a hole in your heart

I'll retrogress anytime you're around
I'll retrogress anytime


Feeling so violent but nothing comes through
Concealing your feelings is poisoning you
You can cry and you can go insane
Watch the helicopters in the rain
Pump it in and pump it out again
Your emotion is a one-way train
There's a hole in your heart

Ohhh, Ahhhh
