  • I wouldn't listen to her, she'll only break your heart
    I'd rather listen to man, woman but not whatever you are
    We'll tip it over the edge and watch it disappear
    I'll paint a picture of you, well my impression of what is inside

    With your stolen eyes
    I'm gonna stare at the sun
    Until I burn them out
    And then I'll picture a knife fight

    We're gonna dig up the sky tonight
    Bury the sun for the rest of our lives
    Lay low and never lie
    We're gonna stay here 'til we make it alright

    I'm going to grip onto her tiny saxophone
    Place an absurd mound of flesh down the tube
    And whistle what's inside
    I'll tie a ribbon to her because she's all I need
    And then I whisper to her, I'd gladly live my whole life on my knees

    With your stolen eyes
    I'm gonna stare at the sun
    Until I burn them out
    And then I'll picture a knife fight

    We're gonna dig up the sky tonight
    Bury the sun for the rest of our lives
    Lay low and never lie
    We're gonna stay here 'til we make it alright

    We're gonna dig up the sky tonight
    Bury the sun for the rest of our lives
    Lay low and never lie
    We're gonna stay here 'til we make it alright

    What's the use if we're struggling on?
    We've got to let this go
    Before it sinks its claws
    Deeper into our souls
    We've got to stick together,
    We've got to stick together
    We've got to stick together
    What's the goal if we're struggling on?
    We've got to let this go
    Before it sinks its claws
    Deeper into our souls
    We've got to stick together,
    We've got to stick together
    We've got to stick together
    We've got to stick together
    We've got to stick together
    We've got to stick together Writer/s: SIMON ALEXANDER NEIL
