Builder of Routines

Album: Rewind The Film (2013)
  • I've sealed myself in
    Laminated all of my skin
    Sellotaped my world in bits
    I must embrace paralysis

    Only in you do we see ourselves
    Only in you can we see our end
    So sick and so tired of being 4 real
    Only the fiction still has the appeal

    Builder of Routines
    It makes me safe and clean
    It crucifies parts of me
    But never seems to make me bleed

    Only in you do we see ourselves
    Only in you can we imagine our mend
    So sick and so tired of being 4 real
    Only the fiction still has the appeal

    How I hate middle age
    In between acceptance and rage
    Democracy has sure made a fool out of me
    But I am the builder of routines Writer/s: JAMES BRADFIELD, NICHOLAS JONES, SEAN MOORE
