I'm With Her 03:39
Schooled Another word for watched a man do Born with the right of God to explain So the faculty would have you believe All you read Ride her rogue third wave Woman is the winter, fortune and the chain That I bow to She's ice cold, thousands of years old And nothing I can do Proved Second term for talk-me-into Truth served to make a crocodile cry And not nothing more The bird's stock and store Is nevermore place some worth on why Not my president but chosen nonetheless To lead me through She's ice cold, thousands of years old And nothing I can do
You're a mess my girl And I foresee you making mess of me You're obsessed, so cold for one so blessed Who'd play the beaten chest The stress is slowly making history... ...out of me I can't breathe You make a mess out of me I can dress myself Though I can't see you thinking less of me Is this a test, then how do I impress If sunday brings your best, the rest Are days for wresting misery... My imaginary friends They all talk amongst themselves Form a line and wait for years Cause I'm mad
To Wembley to see the Scottish play And chase the white devil dogs away Blue faces, lime ginger hair Fairy liquid in Trafalgar Square If this is all we stand for Then we lost long before And this is all you are You're nothing anymore Caged lion likes a fight But easy meat keeps him occupied Dumb families peer through glass The lion don't take one more glance Big day for the bitter fools The cynics sit and cite their winter rules And there's me like a grassy Moor Would I could fall in with the rowdy horde Hate that comes from somewhere Outshines our five yard stare Symbolic savoir faire Outshines our five yard stare Our houses are asleep Boiled down to song and sheep So desperate to be known For anything to call our own
Heart of the city went cold when we got old The animal picked down to the bones Part of the pity we do as we are told Son of mine, find the time To find yourself some piece of mind Oh never take me away From the shell in which I'm set in my ways Ain't no time, ain't no world like those days When the boredom passes send me a sign Heart of this city is sewn to mine When you find your answer Sing me a line out of love All for the money, who wants to be a star Just one chance to take it too far Each somebody, all lungs and beating heart Go let it out, scream about The space you can't be you without And if I close my eyes for a while I find I'm already there All that I want is to prove how I care
