Fast Fuse

Album: West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum (2009)
  • Oh baby I was born
    With a fast fuse
    I've got no time to love
    Just a city to abuse

    Oh baby I was born
    With a fast fuse
    I've got no time to love
    Just a city to abuse

    Come get me
    Wicked fines won't arrest me
    I'm like Lucifer's child
    Wild, acid done
    Black sunglasses shade the morning sun
    Come get me
    All you fuckers can't touch me
    I'm a hooligan crier, sire
    Sit, don't scatter
    It don't matter
    Gimme one two three

    Gold lightning in the skyline
    Gold lightning in the sky

    Oh baby I was born
    With a fast fuse
    I've got no time to lose
    Just a city to abuse

    Oh baby I was born
    With a fast fuse
    I've got no time to lose
    Just a city to abuse

    Vultures settle round
    They wait above the ground

    Oh
    How dare you!
    Not it's time to address you
    I'm the reason you claim
    Shame, stalk my name
    See my fist chopping off your reign
    It's getting hotter
    Now I'm spitting out lava
    Well I'm just putting it into words
    Just genuine stock
    Hear that bomb going tick tick tock

    Gold lightning in the skyline
    Gold lightning in the sky
    Gold lightning in the skyline
    Gold lightning in the sky

    Oh baby I was born
    With a fast fuse
    I've got not time to lose
    Just a city to abuse

    In the middle of the night
    When they come for you
    Where you gonna be?
    What you gonna do?

    Heaven may come
    And heaven may call
    But I won't be there
    (Hey hey!)

    Heaven may come
    And heaven may call
    But I won't be there
    (Hey hey!)

    Heaven may come
    And heaven may call
    But I won't be there
    (Hey hey!)

    Heaven may come
    And heaven may call
    But I won't be there
    (Hey hey!) Writer/s: SERGIO PIZZORNO

  • Fairy from Berlin, GermanyIt was absolutely not written for/about Liam Gallagher. Tom dedicated it to Liam a couple of times when Kasabian toured with Oasis in 2009, but he also dedicated it to many other people, often their support acts, like for example Miles Kane. Dedications are just an acknowledgment, a nice gesture, and have rarely anything to do with the song's content.
  • Liam from Utrecht, Armeniahe said during the oasis concerts at wembley stadium this summer, it's written for and about Liam Gallagher, and you can see that back in those lyrics!
  • Amber from Brooklyn, Nydoes anyone think he looks like Kurt Cobain a little?
