  • You're not alive until you start kicking
    When the room is spinning and the words ain't sticking

    And the radio is all about a run away model
    With a face like sin and a heart like a James Joyce novel

    Saying "Sister, sister, how I missed ya, missed ya
    Let's go wrist to wrist and take the skin off of my blister"
    If you're a Rock Star, Porn Star, Superstar
    Doesn't matter what you are, get yourself a good car, get outta here

    But the boys in the better land
    You're always talking 'bout the boys in the better land
    The boys in the better land
    But the boys in the better land
    You're always talking 'bout the boys in the better land
    The boys in the better land

    Driver's got names to fill two double barrels
    He spits out "Brits out" only smokes Carrolls
    And he's refreshing the world in mind body and spirit
    Mind body and spirit
    You better hear it and fear it
    Oh thats the spirit

    Saying "Sister, sister, how I missed ya, missed ya
    Let's go wrist to wrist, and take the skin off of my blister"
    If you're a Rock Star, Porn Star, Superstar
    Doesn't matter what you are, get yourself a good car, get outta here

    But the boys in the better land
    You're always talking 'bout the boys in the better land
    The boys in the better land
    But the boys in the better land
    You're always talking 'bout the boys in the better land
    The boys in the better land

    Driver's got names to fill two double barrels
    He spits out "Brits out" only smokes Carrolls
    And he's refreshing the world in mind body and spirit
    Mind body and spirit
    You better hear it and fear it
    Oh thats the spirit

    Saying "Sister, sister, how I missed ya, missed ya
    Let's go wrist to wrist, and take the skin off of my blister"
    If you're a Rock Star, Porn Star, Superstar
    Doesn't matter what you are, get yourself a good car, get outta here

    But the boys in the better land
    You're always talking 'bout the boys in the better land
    The boys in the better land
    But the boys in the better land
    You're always talking 'bout those boys in the better land

  • James Oloughlin from DublinI feel like this song has a similar message to zombie by the cranberries, about how set in the past many irish nationalists are. And how Irish nationalism has gone from a united Ireland for all to a united Ireland for the Irish.
