  • Lyrics
  • Well how's your view of thing today
    Got up young to fade away
    The sinners sin but aren't aware
    Our fables take us everywhere
    I can't keep up with you
    I can't keep up

    I can't compete with history
    We'll film it live but dub our tale
    The mystery must stay inside
    Look at our homes, look at our lives
    In control of the morning
    In control of the sea

    You are creating all the bubbles at night
    I'm chasing round trying to pop them all the time
    We don't need to trust a single word they say
    You are creating all the bubbles at play

    There's a girl, there's a girl
    There's a girl, there's a girl
    And she's down by the river
    In her own creepy world
    There's a girl, there's a girl
    And she's down by the river
    It's time to consider
    That baby is a sinner
    She'll wash away your sins
    And go home

    I only once upset my kin
    Accused him of a moral slip
    Well he came back and claimed a change
    I know his life's the same again
    I can't ask him again
    I should let it go

    You are creating all the bubbles at night
    I'm chasing round trying to pop them all the time
    We don't need to trust a single word they say
    You are creating all the bubbles at play

    There's a girl, there's a girl
    There's a girl, there's a girl
    And she's down by the river
    In her own creepy world
    There's a girl, there's a girl
    And she's down by the river
    It's time to consider
    That baby is a sinner

    There's a girl, there's a girl
    There's a girl, there's a girl (She'll wash away your sins)
    She's face down in the river (She'll wash away your sins and go home)Writer/s: SIMON ALEXANDER NEIL
