  • Alot of people around here lost the white in their eyes
    See the lust inside your heart, so why do you go and touch the sky?

    Think with their head argue with their gut
    Draft did you leave the door open it might encourage customers in
    I wish the barmaid shut
    Look like shit, down on my luck
    Two world wars and one world cup
    Scream by the desperate divided crutch
    Used to have an Empire then we grew up
    Lost everything who gives a fuck
    Money in the jukebox rocks all night
    Same shit bands too much hype
    Everyone knows, everyone sees fights
    Everyone drinks in the corner, right
    Everyone knows hes a C blood type
    Same rematch to much delight
    I love her she loves me to that's why we get together

    Alot of people around here lost the white in their eyes
    See the lust inside your heart, I don't want to touch the sky

    He's dizzy for Lizzy
    I'm dizzy generally
    Scapegoat hit by a girl befriended me
    Not that I care it's the only use to me
    She bouncing off walls through doors
    Pretend to be everything I wanna be and everything less
    [? ]

    Your leaving alone but you came together
    Who made the sun turn to stormy weather
    Leaving alone but you came together
    Who made the suns turn to stormy weather

    Alot of people around here lost the white in their eyes
    See the lust inside your heart, I don't want to touch the sky

    She said tonight Jay I'm gunna teach them a ballad
    An English man in every coward
    I was kinda impressed by the way she dressed
    I scoured this land to find a girl empowered
    Ask her again why her heart turned sour
    One of the ones that the boys devoured
    If your gonna learn a song you gotta sing along
    There's an English man in every coward
    I got money in the jukebox rocks all night
    Same shit bands too much hype
    Everyone knows, everyone sees fights
    Everyone drinks in the corner, right
    Everyone knows he's a C blood type
    Same rematch to much delight
    Well I love her, she lovin' me too that's why we get together

    [Repeat x2]
    Alot of people around here lost the whites in their eyes
    See the lust inside your heart I don't want to touch the sky
