Ladytron “Versus”

Everything to gain
From the pain
From the rusted iron chains
That only trusted eyes can break
Shame paraded
Front and centre
Blame placed on redundant sensors
Please translate
Secundum sensum
Thus deny unjust consensus

Whence the blade be thrust
With cuirass blushed
Retouch thy fate
Clutch that brimming
Sense and feeling
Indicating
Custom framing
Thus narrating
Everything to gain

When the pain becomes too great
Lends undue weight
To undulate the sense of shame paraded
Front and centre
Replace redundant sensors
Please translate
Secundum sensum
Trust your gut
And thus deny unjust consensus

Everything to gain
To abstain would be senseless
Leave you exposed
Laying prone and defenceless
Predisposed
In the throes of disclosing repentance
When heaven knows
You served your sentence

Whence the blade be thrust
Remaining fair and just
Retouch thy fate
Clutch that brimming
Sense and feeling
Indicating
Custom framing
Thus narrating
Everything to gain
Please translate
Secundum sensum
Reawaken
Front and centre
