  • Son of Henry, I'm the first in line
    To the throne, smell my mustard gas
    I slash swords through your wooden spine
    Well it cut my heart and it blew my head
    We made love at the side of the road
    Reflex, you better know this flows fast
    This river is particularly sinister
    Close your eyes and take my hand

    I wanna scream one last death medley
    I am looking for a reason to secure a forward motion

    Love that golden rule, that golden rule
    Need that golden rule, that golden rule
    Secrets are the truth, they are the truth
    We need that silver rule, that silver rule

    Face to face with the ball and chain
    I'll poke my head up till its red
    I tell my secrets and you took my pain
    About a broken heart and I will do it again
    Son of Henry, I'm the first in line
    To the throne, smell my mustard gas
    I slash swords through your wooden spine
    Well it cut my heart and it blew my head

    I want to scream one last death medley
    I am looking for a reason to secure a forward motion

    Love that golden rule, that golden rule
    Need that golden rule, that golden rule
    Secrets are the truth, they are the truth
    We need that silver rule, that silver rule Writer/s: SIMON ALEXANDER NEIL
