  • Scratch card glory, or waist-low pleasure?
    Black eyes, nosebleeds, don't look back now
    My white abode, do you remember my white abode?
    But it's such a thrill, just to find out

    Sorry, you're not
    A winner
    With the air so cold and a mind so bitter
    What have you got
    To lose but false intentions
    And a life so pretentious?

    Scratch card glory, or waist-low pleasure?
    Black eyes, nosebleeds, don't look back now
    My white abode, do you remember my white abode?
    But it's such a thrill, just to find out

    Sorry, you're not
    A winner
    With the air so cold and a mind so bitter
    What have you got
    To lose but false intentions
    And a life so pretentious?

    (Scratch card glory) or waist-low pleasure?
    (Black eyes, nosebleeds) don't look back now
    (My white abode) do you remember?
    I sweat, I ache

    Sorry, you're not
    A winner
    With the air so cold and a mind so bitter
    What have you got
    To lose but false intentions
    And a life so pretentious?

    What? What? What?

    Goodbye, your world is

    Insert your coin (insert your coin)
    Please try again (please try again)
    Insert your coin (insert your coin)
    Please try again (please try again) Writer/s: Chris Batten, Liam Rory Clewlow, Robert Rolfe, Roughton Reynolds
