Some Riot

Album: The Seldom Seen Kid (2008)
Play Video
  • A friend of mine grows his very own brambles
    They twist all around him 'til he can't move
    Beautiful, quivering, chivalrous shambles
    What is my friend trying to prove?

    The booze turns a tall gentle boy to a terrible totem
    And the kids gather 'round trying to see what's inside
    I think when he's drinking he's drowning some riot
    What is my friend trying to hide?

    Cause it's breaking my heart, it's breaking my heart
    And it's breaking my heart to pull on the reigns
    Brother of mine, don't run with those fuckers
    When will my friend start singing again?
    When will my friend start singing again? Writer/s: CRAIG LEE POTTER, GUY EDWARD JOHN GARVEY, MARK ELLIS POTTER, MARK POTTER, PETER JAMES TURNER, RICHARD BARRY JUPP
