The Champ

Album: A Celebration Of Endings (2020)
  • Never be seen, and never be heard
    This is the way, it's the grey man's curse
    Aren't we free, so how's this worse?
    Don't give me that bullshit, catch phrase
    "It was better in my day", 'cause I know

    You broke every little thing that you built
    You lost every little thing that you'd always cherished, and more
    You took every little breath that it took
    Don't analyse, just realize, you can't keep us at bay

    'Cause we are The Source
    Of all the things you're desperate to ignore
    When reality has washed upon the shore
    You're always turning tables
    And always telling tales I should ignore
    We are The Source

    virtual dream and a virtual life (life)
    Well, I'm in love with the older kind (kind)
    biblical truth and a cynical lie (lie)
    Don't give me that tight-lipped, bullshit
    "Who says it's do or die?"
    Well, I do

    You got every little thing that you want
    You took every little thing that you'd always needed and more
    You got every little thing that it takes, Champ
    Don't theorize, don't criticize
    Just get the fuck out of my face

    'Cause we are The Source
    Of all the things you're desperate to ignore
    When reality has washed upon the shore
    You're always turning tables
    And always telling tales I should ignore
    We are The Source

    We are The Source
    We are The Source

    We are The Source
    Of all the things you're desperate to ignore
    When reality has washed upon the shore
    You're always turning tables
    And always telling tales I should ignore

    We are The Source
    We are The Source
    We are The Source
    You're always turning tables
    And always telling tales I should ignore
    We are The Source Writer/s: Simon Neil
