Higgs Boson Buzz

Intro: G D C x2
G D C
V1: I gotta warm Higgs Boson Buzz,
G D C
What does that say about us?
G Bm Em
Subatomic particles finer than dust,
F D
Just gotta trust you’re just because, just because
G D C G D C
Oh in the morning I get up, and in the evening I get down
G Bm Em
And in between time in the meanwhile you’re still hanging there
F D
In between the air and back again.

A D E
CH: We don’t make perfect things, we make beautiful things
A D E
Smash it all apart on a high flying ring
A D E
We don’t make perfect things, we make beautiful things,
A D E
Smash ourselves apart on a high-speed flying ring
F G A
Suddenly the Hadron Collider explains everything – whoa oh oh
F G A
Suddenly the Hadron Colllider explains everything.

V2: In the morning I break down,

Cos in the evening I get high,

And in between times in the meanwhile you’re still

Hanging there, in between the moon and everywhere,

Oh, I gotta warm Higgs Boson buzz, yes I do now,

What does that say about us, all those

Subatomic particles finer than dust,

Just gotta trust you’re just because, just because

Oh in the morning I get up, and in the evening I get down

And in between time in the meanwhile you’re still hanging there

In between the air and back again.

CH: We don’t make perfect things, we make beautiful things,

Smash it all apart on a high flying ring

We don’t make perfect things, [big fancy break] we make beautiful things,

Smash ourselves apart on a high-speed flying ring

Suddenly the Hadron Collider explains everything – whoa oh oh

Suddenly the Hadron Colllider, Suddenly the Hadron Colllider,

Suddenly the Hadron Colllider explains everything.

OUTRO: A D A D etc

Ah well you stop us from flying apart (thank you)

Keep us solid somehow in the dark (thank you)

Don’t get your relationship with quarks (fuck you)

But I trust you, it’s just you, Higgs Boson Buzz

Higgs Boson Buzz, Higgs Boson Ba-Buzz etc

Ah well you stop us from flying apart,
Keep us solid somehow in the dark,
Don’t get your relationship with quarks,
But I trust you, it’s just you, Higgs Boson Buzz
[ending on vortex vanish]
Higgs Boson Ba-buzz, Higgs Boson Ba-Buzz etc
Track Name: Bounceback
Bounceback

First time I seen your face it was another place you said get off my case
You had a can of mace, uh-huh, a can of mace, that’s right,
And you would spray it in my face, then we were apart
Like the very start, I cannot eat and I lie in the dark
Got no money and a broken heart, no money and I am broken.

Your eyes are blue, see is green, wish that you would stop running away
From me, eyes are blue, sea is green why don’t you jump in,
Stop troubling me (don’t cry baby, my sweet baby)

Like an American I cannot remember when
I ever felt so sick cos then you said
Just wanted to be friends you just
Just wanted to be friends.

First time I seen your face it was another place you said get off my case
Said you had banana cake, in liquid form, bana-na-na-na cake, that’s right,
And you would spray it in my face, then we were apart, like the very start,
I cannot eat and I lie in the dark,
Got no money and a broken heart, no money and I am broken.
Track Name: Sixties
60s Outta Sight


Nobody gets outta here alive, Sixties is just a lie

Only a dream, hard to sleep.

Nobody here’s got an alibi, Sixties is outta sight,

Only a dream, hard to sleep, man it was only a dream.


Nefertiti gets her Warhol shorts down at the no-brand store,

And Lazer Kanye waves that placard, doesn’t even know what it’s for,

And meanwhile Pepe’s moral compass is some cartoon dog from Osaka, Hei,

Says the west is out of heroes, doesn’t smell so good anymore.


Nobody gets outta here alive too late to even try sixties is just a lie,

‘Sama sings open fire, dream, hard to sleep, man it was only a dream (ooh!)


Martin Luther had a dream and john and yoko mise-en-scened,

You gotta make love and not war, turning on the human race,

Flying out of inner space, with Dr Gonzo, old-time lysergic,

Catch 22, no solution, sexual revolution, free free love and the G Men,

Oh even Lucy in the sky can’t stop the world from you and I

Blowing our brains right out of our foreheads,


Nobody gets outta here alive too late to even try sixties is just a lie,

‘Sama sings open fire, dream, hard to sleep, man it was only a dream

Nobody here’s got an alibi, too late to criticise, sixties is outta sight,
‘Bama’s drones open fire, dream, hard to sleep, man it was only a dream (C’mon!)

Track Name: Zombie Apocalypse
Zombie Apocalypse
Em-G
[crackling emergency intro]


Are you living, are you undead, which side are you on?

Now that everything we once knew has gone,

Jump from the end, right back to the start,

Cross my bleeding broken love-heart, let’s start again.


In the beginning, we still spoke of winning, sounds of gunfire, too late for that,

After all that, for all that, black hat, white hat, steal this, stab that.

What’s that, you got my back and I got your back,

Cos you know that you need me, and I know that I need you…


In the zombie apocalypse, I want you by my side,
In the zombie apocalypse, there’s nowhere to hide,
Come with me, we two will survive, we will reach the other side,
Whatever that looks like.

So we move from place to place, and everywhere you go, you look in
Each other’s face, and if you turn on me when I turn to you,
And it turns me on, and it turns me into, is that so wrong?
Don’t think about it too much, just sing along, just sing along, just sing along…

In the zombie apocalypse, I want you by my side,
In the zombie apocalypse, there’s nowhere to hide,
Come with me into the night, because our love will never die,
And I will always be your guy and, even if I have to, be, your, un,dead, guy.

Are we living in a nightmare, are we dying in a dream?
If I sleep then do not wake me, in this dream you’ll not forsake me,
Even if the zombies only take me, you’ll take me back, let me live in your shed,
Chained. To. A Heavy. Metal. Be-e-e-e-ed.

In the zombie apocalypse, I want you by my side,
In the zombie apocalypse, there’s nowhere to hide,
Come with me, through the night, cos our love will never die,
Stand the test of time, reach the other side, always have each other,
Don’t mind if you eat me let me be your zombie lover. [Wig Out] [x2]
Track Name: Crystal Clear
Crystal Clear

What a mistake I made, letting it all go to my head
No compromise, no room for anyone, no room for anything,
Anything but me.

Now I got plenty of time, now that I got everything that I thought I needed,
When all of the world is falling into line,
You’re a piece of the puzzle that I cannot seem to find.

Suddenly crystal clear, now that you’re not here,
I see you were first prize, when you were right before my eyes.
Suddenly crystal clear, oh so crystal clear,
Now that it’s crystal clear, I wish you were here.

It’s so infuriating, every time I do this to myself,
It was in my hands but I let it go,
Afraid to live, afraid to love, aaah.
