  • It's the disease of the age
    It's the disease that we crave
    Alone at the end of the rave
    We catch the last bus home

    Corporate America wakes
    Coffee republic in case
    We open the latch on the gate
    Of the hole that we call our home

    Protect me from what I want,
    Protect me protect me

    Maybe we're victims of fate
    Remember when we'd celebrate
    We'd drink and get high until late
    And now we're all alone

    Wedding bells ain't gonna chime
    With both of us guilty of crime
    And both of us sentenced to time
    And now we're all alone

    Protect me from what I want,
    Protect me protect me

    Protect me from what I want,
    Protect me protect me

    Protect me from what I want,
    Protect me protect me

    Protect me from what I want,
    Protect me protect me Writer/s: WILLIAM LLOYD, BRIAN MOLKO, STEFAN OLSDAL, STEVEN HEWITT
