Since we're feeling so anaesthetised
In our comfort zone
Reminds me of the second time
That I followed you home

We're running out of alibis
On the second of May
Reminds me of the summertime
On this winter's day

See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end

Every step we take that's synchronised
Every broken bone
Reminds me of the second time
That I followed you home

You shower me with lullabies
As you're walking away
Reminds me that it's killing time
On this fateful day

See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end

From the time we intercepted
Feels a lot like suicide
Slow and sad, come in silence
Arise a bitter mine
See you at the bitter end

I love to see you run around
And I can see you now
Running to me
Arms wide out
See you at the bitter end

Come on reach inside
Grab the gentleness inside
Heard a cry
Six months time
In six months time
Prepare the end
See you at the bitter end

What makes people on here think that discussing and conjecturing about someone's sexuality and trying to label it is an okay thing to do? Uncool.

His "faux-gay" is what I'd call androgynous:
"Although Molko was brought up in a strict household that disapproved of artistic expression (his father wanted him to become a banker), he rebelled by assuming an androgynous image, wearing nail polish, lipstick, and eyeliner, and listening to punk music. "
He is Bi-Sexual as well so you could be forgiven for thinking it's faux-gay!

The ghost he's embracing is clearly a woman.  Just sayin'
Good Tune!!

They only have two good albums.

Solid 9. I'm not a big fan of their stuff generally but this tune kicks ass.
Bangin'.  I like this a lot.  Instant 8.
No love for their radio hit??

Don't know these guys at all - is this or other albums worth owning? This is pretty good.
Everbody in my classroom loves this song! (Even the teacher & the ginger kid)
What is all this noise in the early morning?
Yes I am awake now....

definitely a good tempo, dangerous when you're cycling because you end up at the beat.
For those who likes this tempo, I could advise to try "raining in paradize", by Manu Chao

 
also because you won't hear that car coming up behind you. And it's going faster than you despite your cadence. Surprised

I always remember back to playing SSX3 when I hear this one
There is a fantastic mash up with....someone....and this tune.

Great song.
This soooo rrrrrrrrooooooocksssssss

more more more! 
S-M-O-K-I-N-G!
Totally rocks. . . 
Great song, and one of my favorite album covers.
{#Guitarist} .......... {#Drummer} ......... {#Yes}
Man, talk about relentless rock!  I was exhausted by the time the song ended, and I wasn't even chair-dancing.  Gooood schtuff!  {#Dancingbanana_2}
What a great antidote to a triple dose of The Who - rockin' and passionate (sexy and sad album cover, too). If I weren't in a shared office I'd be chair-dancing. 8 from the Nottingham jury.
Living GODS!!!

An awesome track I've always loved. . . great to finally hear it on RP!!!
 
This song shouldn't be on the never played pile.  sort it out, I know 'Whinning Molko' isn't everyones cuppa tea but this is a great track.
This song is amazing, it should be played far more often!
I'd love to hear.... please
what a great song play pls :)
