GET SOME SCARS I was coming down fast from where once was wonder I was coming down fast, black dog on my back. I was coming down fast from where once was wonder, I was coming down fast. The night was cool and bleeding black As you crawled out across the glass - oh oh! With my blood and bones and feathers in your teeth. I swear to God the Ghost and Father sometimes it’s just so much harder So much harder to hold your breath than to breathe, But it comes so easily. Oh while we’re young yeah, let’s go out and get some scars Because when we’re older we’ll wear them to tell us apart. No this feeling won’t last, so we sink to a slumber Singing “every balloon you blow up I burst” No this feeling won’t last so we sink to a slumber Screaming “you killed me first”. Where once was wonder is now the feeling of weeping like the water wheel That just keeps turning till we’re numb - "blue summer, no dice son” Set these controls for that blue moon just like you did when I was cruel But if we’re going up and up and up we aren’t coming down too soon. Oh while we’re young yeah, let’s go out and get some scars Because when we’re older we’ll wear them to tell us apart. When I get to the gutter I get up and a show you the scars that I won on my way to the bottom. When I get to the gutter I get up, I get up and I show you the scars. Oh when we’re older, let’s meet up and show the scars we got when we were young, we’ll need them to tell us apart.

I saw a Buller Man in blue on my tv “what’s going on ? there’s a fire, it’s a riot, it’s a riot!” He said “Don’t worry son, they’re not like you or me” But I’m not buying it, buying it, buying it, no! You always hold your head up high, When its a long, long, long way down, in this town It ain’t so far to fall when you’ve got nothing at all And money makes the merryworld go-round When the future is never good enough then They throw some punches, spill some blood Like you would if you’d been fucked by the Bullingdon Club You carry the pot and I’ll carry the can Hear the sound of glass! oh my how we ran! My dear boy you’ll never understand how it was when I was a Buller man We were young and reckless, we dressed to kill But if we fucked you up, we could pay the bill I close my eyes real tight because I think I can still remember our Lavender Hill (and the glory) When the future is never good enough then They throw some punches, spill some blood Like you would if you’d been fucked by the Bullingdon Club The future is when we’ll fall in love So we’ll rip this joint, just smash it up Like you did when you were young in the Bullingdon Club - WE ARE, WE ARE, WE ARE THE BULLER BOYS - IN BLUE, IN BLUE, IN BLUE, BLUE AND IVORY C’mon on my baby, yeah come sit down next to me WE ARE, WE ARE, WE ARE THE BULLER BOYS - IN BLUE, IN BLUE, IN BLUE, BLUE AND IVORY so C’mon on my darling, yeah come put your lips on me then you'll DANCE DANCE DANCE for me baby - DANCE DANCE DANCE for me darling - C’mon now honey, come lie down next to me The future’s never good enough so they throw some punches, spill some blood like you would if you’d been fucked, by the Bullingdon Club. Because everybody wants to change the world but nobody ever wants to change so, let’s all dance to the sound of lonlieness close our eyes and scream until it’s over.

Jump high, crouch low, wind me up and watch me go - 123123 Geronimo! Up - Down - Stop - Go - Talons, claws and teeth and bones - Get back yeah get back cos she’s gonna blow. Sometimes we shoot to kill sometimes we shoot to mame, baby life moves so fast it’s all the same. Now you’ve got a pistol and I’ve got a fever, so put down your gun and pick up my receiver. Your heart is a weapon the size of your fist, all love is war baby, so pick a side and tell me do you love or do you hate me? Silent God - Violent Love - The Devil he got Tiger Blood - tick tock tick tock He come pull the the pin. Lust - Lies - Vice - Sin - in the Kremlin, White House and Berlin where a heart is a weapon like it’s always been. Sometimes we shoot to kill sometimes we shoot to mame, baby life moves so fast it’s all the same. When I heart the word culture I reach for my revolver - hate straight from my chamber into your aorta. Your heart is a weapon the size of your fist, all love is war baby, so pick a side and tell me do you love or do you hate, yeah do you love or hate me. Your heart is a weapon the size of your fist, pray with me be gentle, plant your hate, with a kiss. Half a brick in a stocking, the switchblade, the sword, blow me to forever cos baby I’m bored. Your heart is a weapon the size of your fist, all love is war baby, so pick a side and tell me do you love or do you hate me?

Oh Lord when did I become this beast wild with hunger? When did they give it to me, oh this disease? My hearts a lonely hunter, as I punch in the numbers Not with a smile, just a mouth full of teeth Singing “oh come good water, we’ll drink like we oughta, oh come good water, oh come soothe your soul, oh come good water we’ll drink like we oughta, come ease the thirst in your husk of a soul” Oh the Devil got me dancing, Oh the Devil got me, Oh the Devil got me dancing got this oh so comfortable disease, the Devil got me. Come pull me out come break this spell that I'm under Anethitised to what I want, what I need Oh yeah I got religion, my saviour television! It turned this house into a den full of thieves! Singing “oh come good water, we’ll drink like we oughta, oh come good water, oh come soothe your soul, oh come good water we’ll drink like we oughta, come ease the thirst in your husk of a soul” Oh the Devil got me dancing, Oh the Devil got me, Oh the Devil got me dancing got this oh so comfortable disease, the Devil got me.
