  • I'm gonna paste you up
    Cover you in wallpaper
    Screw shelves into you
    And call you a wall

    that's all you are to me
    Tryna keep people inside
    Inside your sordid little house
    This is no white abode

    you can have skirting board shoes
    And plug sockets on your knees
    I'll hang a painting on your lip
    And put tinsel round it at Christmas

    Tryna keep people inside
    Inside your sordid little house
    Tryna keep people inside
    Inside your sordid little house
    You can't keep us inside much longer pal
    We've seen the view from the window
    You can't keep us inside much longer pal
    We've seen the view from the window

    It's glorious outside
    Have you seen the time?
    Have you seen the tide?
    We'll sing all night
    We need cohesion

    As time keeps moving
    We keep losing our rights
    Freedom is not the choices
    Between what job and what car

    You can just look back into history
    To find corruption and mystery
    And if we don't take note
    We'll wake up on the same boat

    Tryna keep people inside
    Inside your sordid little house
    Tryna keep people inside
    Inside your sordid little house

    It's glorious outside
    Have you seen the time?
    Have you seen the tide?
    We'll sing all night
    We need cohesion

    have you seen the time?
    Have you seen the tide?

    Grit ya teeth then break the glass
    Now sprint and don't look back
    Full pelt into the dense forest
    And ask him
    What's your thoughts on lionizing?
    What's your thoughts on tensions rising?
    Deep in the dense forest

    Tryna keep people inside
    Inside your sordid little house
    Tryna keep people inside
    Inside your sordid little house
    Tryna keep people inside
    Inside your sordid little house
    Tryna keep people inside
    Inside your sordid little house Writer/s: CHRIS BATTEN, LIAM RORY CLEWLOW, ROBERT ROLFE, ROUGHTON REYNOLDS
