Lyrics:

Breaking In

 

Watching…

It’s just static in transmission

But that’s alright ‘cause no-one’s listening

Just break the code so I can get in

It’s the contact I’ve been missing

 

Dim the light and watch for movement

In the intra-red confusion

Our bodies glowing in the night

They’re watching us on television

 

Breaking in

Breaking out

 

Cut the wire on inhibition

Let go of your indecision

Feel the pulse as it starts to quicken

Deactivate the nervous system

Deactivate

 

I’m breaking in

I’m breaking out 

Deactivate

I’m breaking in

Breaking out

They’re watching us on television

Watching…


 

Imperfekt 

 

Don’t give me automation

Give me something I can feel

Give me something to believe in

Something imperfekt and real

 

Take me to the place 

We used to be before

Before we complicated everything

And we wanted more

We should have locked the door

 

Don’t give me automation

Give me something I can feel

Give me something to believe in

Something imperfekt and real

 

Watch the porcelain mannequins 

Walk through the door

When they try to talk 

They pull their strings

But it’s just dead air

Cause there’s no-one there

 

Don’t give me complication

Give me something I can feel

Give me something to live for

Something imperfekt and real

 

We’re bound to get it wrong

We’re bound to get it right

As long as it’s real

Then that’s alright

We’re bound to get it wrong

We’re bound to get it right

As long as it’s here

With you tonight

We’re bound to get it wrong

Bound to get it right

As long as it’s ours

Then we’ll be fine

 

Don’t give me automation

Give me something I can feel

Give me something to believe in

Something imperfekt and real
