  • I'm not good in a crowd
    I got skills I can't speak of
    Things I've seen will chase me
    To the grave

    I'm not good in a crowd
    I got skills I can't speak of
    Over there

    Things that I've seen
    Will chase me to the grave
    Led with your hands tied
    Fetters and flies

    You stumble the dunes
    Complain to the moon
    Backs to the wheel
    There's granite to shove

    Take it
    They give it
    So rivet for rivet
    I will pilfer my family a bulletproof love

    How does it feel
    The weight of the steel?
    The weight of the steel
    The flat of the blade

    How does it feel
    To kneel at defeat?
    To kneel at defeat
    At the choices you make

    Hey, hey, hey
    I'm not good in a crowd
    I got skills I can't speak of

    Things I've seen will chase me
    To the grave
    Backs to the wheel
    There's granite to shove

    Take it
    They give it
    And rivet for rivet
    I will build for my family a bulletproof love Writer/s: Damon Albarn, Grantley Evan Marshall, Guy Edward John Garvey, Neil Davidge, Robert Del Naja
