Take Aim

Album: West Rider Pauper Lunatic Asylum (2009)
  • Nightmares, oh nightmares come on now
    Getting my days all wrong now
    Risen from prison an outlaw
    Spending our time in the lion's jaw
    In the end you sink or swim
    I'm eager, I'm eager

    Loving more loving come on now
    Socially biting your tongue now
    Run down oh run down old houses
    Feeding the cats to the mouses

    [Chorus]
    Oh take aim now!
    Oh take aim now!
    Can you see me in the way now
    Oh take aim now!
    Oh take aim now!
    Gotta get us out of here

    Drop them and give them star prizes
    Lock them away in high rises
    Held off and called on by truncheons
    Rattling keys to the dungeons

    [Chorus]

    Don't take me over
    I bid you all farewell
    I've got to leave
    Tears on my shovel
    Switch me off today

    [Chorus: x2]

    Don't take me over
    I bid you all farewell
    I've got to leave Writer/s: SERGIO PIZZORNO
