Friends and Enemies

  • I see a choir coming down the hill
    They're singing devil songs
    A welded, twisted melody

    They don't ask but still they come around
    They see that you're not wanted
    I don't want you to ruin it

    They had eyes like a backwards sunset
    A golden curve
    They gave me armbands made of concrete
    I have to swim, I have to swim

    Cause you were not right
    You were just righteous
    With a friend as good as you, who needs enemies?
    I guess we all make mistakes

    I took a road I didn't recognise
    And waited for a call to
    Help me get her stabilised

    I nursed her and then she came around
    I prefer her conscious
    Than dreams within a dream

    Her eyes were described as deep set cigarette burns
    Please keep me in the right context
    I have to learn, I have to learn

    Cause you were not right
    You were just righteous
    With a friend as good as you (friend as good as you), who needs enemies?
    Was it that bad?
    (Let me tell you 'bout the truth in us)
    Am I really that venomous?
    (Let me tell you 'bout the world)
    With a friend as good as you, who needs enemies?
    I guess we all make mistakes
    And time is gonna tell
    Or maybe it never will

    Friends as good as you, friends as good as you
    Friends as good as you, friends as good as you
    Friends as good as you (let me tell you 'bout the truth in us)
    Friends as good as you (let me tell you 'bout the world)
    Friends as good as you (let me tell you 'bout the truth in us)
    Friends as good as you

    Cause you were not right
    You were just righteous
    With a friend as good as you, who needs enemies?
    Was it that bad?
    (Let me tell you 'bout the truth in us)
    Am I really that venomous?
    (Let me tell you 'bout the world)
    With a friend as good as you (friend as good as you), who needs enemies? (friend as good as you)
    With a friend as good as you (friend as good as you), who needs enemies?
    I guess we all make mistakes
    But we're growing
    But we're growing
    But we're growing
    But we're growingWriter/s: Simon Alexander Neil
