Ready to Start

  • Businessmen drink my blood
    Like the kids in art school said they would
    And I guess I'll just begin again
    You say you, can we still be friends

    If I was scared
    I would
    And if I was bored
    You know I would
    And if I was yours
    Well I'm not

    All the kids have always known
    That the emperor wears no clothes
    But to bow to down to them anyway
    Is better than being alone

    If I was scared
    I would
    And if I was bored
    You know I would
    And if I was yours
    But I'm not

    Now you're knocking at my door
    Saying please come out against tonight
    But I would rather be alone
    Than pretend I feel alright
    If the businessmen drink my blood
    Like the kids in art school said they would
    Then I guess I'll just begin again
    You say you can still be friends

    If I was scared
    I would
    And if I was pure
    You know I would
    And if I was yours
    But I'm not

    Now I'm ready to start

    If I was scared
    I would
    And if I was pure
    You know I would
    And if I was yours
    But I'm not

    Now I'm ready to start

    Now I'm ready to start
    I would rather be wrong
    Than live in the shadows of your song
    My mind is open wide
    And now I'm ready to start
    Now I'm ready to start
    My mind is open wide
    And now I'm ready to start
    Your mind surely opened the door
    To step out into the dark
    Now I'm ready Writer/s: Jeremy Gara, Regine Chassagne, Richard R Parry, Tim Kingsbury, William Butler, Win Butler
