Progressive, sinister B Side with an ending similar to that of Nature_1, but sped up. Played since the early days of the band but probably dropped shortly after the band began to play songs from the upcoming Origin Of Symmetry, as this was an old song at the time. Part of the song was played again in 2012, and once more in 2013. The chord progression of the song bears similarity to "Doll's illness" by Tchaikovsky from his "Album for the Young".

Live

Host was played often during early concerts before the band broke through. The only known full play of the song today is the Plymouth Hoe performance in 1997. Although it did not made a confirmed appearance during the Showbiz tour, it was soundchecked at least once in 2000.

The song then reappeared fifteen years after its last known performance in 2012 where it appeared in a shorter form for eleven gigs, usually as an intro to Time is Running Out. Host was believed to have been played just once in 2013.

Lyrics

I’ve read you well

I just wanna get away Cos' you used my love I just need to get away My trust in you has been abused My trust in you has been overused

Sick of this space Wish we could be far away Cos' I wasted all my youth I’ll never see it again My trust in you has been abused My trust in you has been overused

I will welcome you to everything Because you've bled me dry now I just wanna run away Because you've bled me dry now I just wanna run away

I just wanted too much I wish we could be far away And if my wish comes true You’ll never see me again

I’ve read you well

I just wanna get away 'cause you used my love I just wanna get away My trust in you has been abused My trust in you has been overused

I hate this place I just wanna run far away 'cause I've wasted all my youth And you’ll never see me again My trust in you has been abused My trust in you has been overused

So I'll welcome you to everything, yeah I'm your half-wit like I said you could be 'cause you've bled me dry now I just wanna get away 'cause you've bled me dry now I just wanna ride away

I just wanted too much I just want to run away And if my wish comes true You'll never see me again
