(Bursting out) (?)
(Throwing stones on Friday night) (?)
(Words can never harm us)

The same quiet faces cover the walls
We all say someone grown so lonely now
We [evoke (?)/exact] the maximum shame
The same the same

All our preparations are spared
They're winding up their fierce affairs
They take away everyone leaving me here
Again the same

Work at home
Work at home

The fun is outgrown the saccharine answer
The same sad chords and the same false start
The same fine music and the same hired cars
The same fat columns at the same bazaar
The same phone-call and the same dry bar
The same fast target and the same desire
The face this second shows the people we are
The Priest is STICKY and is POPULAR

Work at home
Work at home - the chemical way
Work at home - emasculation
Work at home - kiss the old men
We'll know when we're ready to begin again

WE'RE ALL BRACED UP - READY FOR THE ACCIDENT
WE [THINK/SAY] THIS COFFEE'S ALRIGHT - BEEN SO LONG BEEN SO LONG
BE UNDERSTANDING - UNDERSTAND - SAY AHH
WHEN IT'S COLD OUTSIDE WE RESORT TO SINGING SONGS

The same mud collar and the same white bar
The same [blind corner/tight struggle] and the same late farce
The mirror's so lucky it sees what we are
The vascular bundle[s] and the jugular
The oblique direction[s] and the same way home
The same bad karma and the same hard body
The cake tastes solid and the milk goes sour
The skin gets sticky and the breath unsure

Work at home
Work at home - react to this thing
Work at home - reject your image
Work at home - embellish this fear
Assemble older people and their friends in here

The soulless show affectionate fear
The bad dead feelings seep into us now
We take hand, say obvious prayers
The taped heart starts from instinct
We all light fires on separate stairs
The consequence is theory until now
The arched back the elegant anger
The same hard stale reasons

Say when - say die - say ahh
Say when - say die - say ahh
Say when - say die - say ahh
Say when - say die - say ahh
Say when - say die - say ahh
Say when - say die - say ahh
Say when - say die - say ahh
Say when - say die - say ahh
Say when - say die - say ahh
Say when - say die - say ahh
Say when - say die
