Wombats, The - Our Perfect Disease Lyrics




We don't admit it but we've never seen eye to eye
My hobby's moaning and yours is making money
It's always a shock when old friends pass by
But with you it's no death in the family

Let's not talk about hate when there's hell to pay
For my cowardice and your bad timing
We don't admit it but we've never seen eye to eye
But it's not through a lack of trying

It was the perfect disease we had
Something to argue and scream about
Who do I see about contracting it back?
And locking it somewhere it can't get ripped out
It was the perfect disease we had
And in its absence lies a painful fact
We all need someone to drive us mad

I didn't say it but you never were the honest type
You tried to fabricate a bedtime story
And now I miss those games we had of Jekyll and Hyde
Ever since the day that we parted company

Don't send a helping hand
I need a battering ram
To beat the reasons that I miss you so sorely
We didn't say it but we never saw eye to eye
Now life is carefree and equally as boring
It was the perfect disease we had
Something to argue and scream about
Who do I see about contracting it back?
And locking it somewhere it can't get ripped out
It was the perfect disease we had
And in its absence lies a painful fact
We all need someone to drive us mad

I need you in the TV
I need you on the train
I need you every single which way
I need you in the mirrors
I need you in my bed
I need you to wreck my head
I need you in the TV
I need you on the train
I need you just to stand in my way
I need you in the mirrors
I need you in my bed

It was the perfect disease we had
Something to argue and scream about
Who do I see about contracting it back?
And locking it somewhere it can't get ripped out
It was the perfect disease we had
And in its absence lies a painful fact
We all need someone to drive us mad

  10. Amy Gilroy

    Freaking amazing !

  11. Scott Brennand

    I went to watch their concert last night! It was so good. This is my fav song out of all of them, but they didn’t play it! But the concert was amazing, the wombats never get old. My dads always loved these guys, and I’ve heard their songs since I was a baby. ❤️😘😁😝😂💗🥳

  12. 야나다

    This was my first Wombat's song, just writing this comment brings back very good memories

  13. Rachel

    I NEEDED YOU TO WRECK MY HEAD

  14. Nicole Law

    My boyfriend introduced me to these guys, they’re amazing.

  15. this is music

    Darren 😂

  16. Pxxch_e

    amazing work!! Btw- I am born in 2003 :D

  17. izzie

    this song is bittersweet to the max..

  18. Tora tyler

    If you ever get a chance to go to a festival with them there- fucking go

  19. Lazzy Go

    lepsze polskie disco polo

  20. midsummersky

    christ, those AM vs. wombats comments are agitating to see. they're just too bands who happened to start around the same time in the same musical genre. and then they happened to drift off into different directions. both AM and the wombats are cool in their own way, the rest is just preferences. i love them both for different reasons.

  21. dutchsloth gaming

    Am I the only one who wonders where they recorded this vid?

  22. Marcelo S.

    Br aq???

  23. That Smile

    Why does Murph look so hot in this video?

    Megan Thomson

    Lets be honest. When does he not?

    That Smile

    +Megan Thomson Haha right?

  24. Terrance Branch

    I've found it! FINALLY!

  25. Teznar

    Italia 2 mi ha portato qui.

  26. Trygve Nilsen

    This was the first Wombat song I heard. I was about eleven years old and my sister put this on. The Wombats was really the first music me and her both enjoyed just as much. It actually braught us closer, and til' this day The Wombats are still my #1 favorite band. They are amazing.

    Ells

    I've been listening to the wombats since like infant school. But especially as a teenager I've always loved the wombats XD

  27. Lydia

    why is it so easy for me to cry to this song?

    Green Squig

    +Lydia Cus you realise what a bullshitter you are.

    Lydia

    +Green Squig nah, I think that it's because I need someone to drive me mad, but I don't have friends so

  28. anida saengxayabandith

    brings back memories again... :)

  29. Nicki Minaj Kerim Kancc

    Vh1 commercial..

  30. Amy G

    i dont get how someone wouldnt like this song.... :'o

    AMVS-DxD

    I don't get why anyone wouldn't like this band

  31. Señor Taco

    Does it matter if "A" copied "B's" style etc?? . Everyone has an idol, inspiration or role model. If you can come up with an idea in a vacuum, then i"ll salute you for that. But till then, take seat and shut your mouths.

  32. Claire Withers

    Saw the wombats yesterday and they were insane, they're so underrated

  33. Shalom Yossef

    one of the best albums ever made

    Dan Collins

    Shalom Yossef it may be very good but you are clearly not educated on music if you think this is one of the best albums ever

    Shalom Yossef

    Here is another genius , do yourself a favour and do not comment to me anymore

    Jake Robinson

    Dan Collins how did you manage to trigger someone that quickly. That takes some skill. Fair play 👏

  34. Chloe Everett

    These guys are so underrated.

    Sophie Hawton

    +fretui medak wow dude. mind blown. you just summed how I feel about underated bands . however these guys like the 1975 are getting popular. the popular girl love them

    Violet Carter Noske

    Fun fact, I've liked them since 2009 lmao I love them so much.
    They still have a big following.
    Oh and I know all the lyrics every song in the "this modern glitch" album.

    Megan Thomson
