  • Roll a four, roll a nine
    Find yourself washed up in paradise
    Like before you didn't mind
    Someone else washed up in paradise, everyday

    What a nice day for a murder
    Yourself a killer but the only thing you're killing is your time
    There's nothing absurder than a burd'
    It's a burden to your heart, soul, body, spirit and mind

    Don't look back at me like that, she won't take you back
    I said too much, been too unkind
    Get off your back, stop smoking that
    Change your life, just might change her mind, her mind

    Roll a four, roll a nine
    Find yourself washed up in paradise
    All the fours to all the nines
    I lost my phone in paradise, pay as you go

    What a nice day for a murder
    Say you're a killer, I think you're killing is time
    There's nothing absurder than a burd'
    It's a burden to your heart, soul, body, spirit and mind

    Oh, don't look at me like that, she won't take you back
    Done too much, been too unkind
    Get up off your back, stop smoking that
    Change your life, think it'll change her mind

    Don't look at me like that, she won't take you back
    Said too much, been too unkind
    Get up off your back, stop smoking that
    Change your life, just might change her mind Writer/s: PETER DOHERTY
