  • It was one of those times
    When I wasn't really there
    I'm a side effect I said
    In town disintegration was
    Doing me in
    Do me in again

    Sometimes so good
    Makes me think of revolution
    Can we do it again
    Something in our blood
    Makes people needy people
    Consuming again

    Boys
    Get straight
    Shot down
    In flames
    Small time
    Happenings
    Too late
    Boys
    Get straight

    Reactivate
    Reload

    Sometimes so good
    Makes people needy people
    Getting used again
    Some things in our blood
    Makes it so easy for them
    Consume consume again

    Reactivate
    Reload

    Boys
    Get straight
    Wild life
    Escapes
    High time
    Happenings
    Too late
    Boys
    Get straight Writer/s: JAMES DOVIAK, JOHNNY MARR
