​Short sharp shock

This song is by Performance and appears on the EP Short Sharp Shock EP (2006) and on the album (We Are) Performance (2007).

Let's set sail for nowhere,
You've got the clothes and heaven knows,
It's time that we were comatosed.
My eyes shut with envy at what you do,
Come back to me,
I lost you when I won a taste for losing.

You're abusing me,
That's the only reason that I'm here.
I need a short sharp shock. Yeah...
I need a helping hand.

I need crime (it's time), I need a short sharp shock. (It's time)
You're my electric chair.
(Strap me down and hold my hand)
Blind fold me.
I need a short sharp shock.

Idle lives of laughter and magazines,
The centrefold I'm sure I'll never ever hold.
Your fate fixing fingers are around my throat,
You make me laugh,
While talking me through photographs of late night,
Wasting days.
That's the only reason that I'm here.

I need a short sharp shock. Yeah...
I need a dream come true.

I need crime (it's time), I need a short sharp shock. (It's time)
You're my electric chair.
(Strap me down and hold my hand)
Blind fold me.
I need a short sharp shock.

Drive me twi (it's time).
I need a short sharp shock. (It's time)
I need intansive care
(Strap me down and hold my hand)
Blind fold me.
I need a short sharp shock.

I need a short sharp shock. Yeah...
You're my electric chair.

I need crime (it's time), I need a short sharp shock. (It's time)
You're my electric chair.
(Strap me down and hold my hand)
Blind fold me.
I need a short sharp shock.

Short sharp shock.
(Strap me down and hold my hand. Blind fold me. I need a short sharp shock)

Take your time.
Break your time.
Fake your time.
Strap me down, I need a short sharp shock.
