INTRODUCTION:

(00:22) Introduction to "No Surprises"

VERSE ONE:

(01:56) A heart that's full up like a landfill

(03:26) A job that slowly kills you

(04:23) Bruises that won't heal

(05:31) You look so tired unhappy

(06:00) Bring down the government

(06:39) They don't, they don't speak for us

(07:27) I'll take a quiet life

(07:56) A handshake of carbon monoxide

(09:10) With no alarms and no surprises

(10:03) Silent, silent

(10:38) This is my final fit

(11:37) My final bellyache
