Graveyard Whistling

Album: Nothing But Thieves (2015)
  • All that afterlife
    I don't hold with it
    All your gods are false
    Just get used to it
    Let's go out tonight
    Kill some stubborn myths
    Set those ghosts alight, get into it.

    No one's getting younger
    Would you like a souvenir?
    Let it take you under,
    Feel your worries disappear

    'Cause if you don't believe, it can't hurt you
    And when you let it leave, it can't hurt you
    'Cause if you don't believe, then you know
    Then you know it can never do you harm
    'Cause if you don't believe, it can't hurt you

    Ok, I admit
    I'm not innocent
    I did everything and I would again
    I'm not listening
    I've heard everything
    Graveyard listening
    I'm into it

    No one's getting younger
    Would you like a souvenir?
    Let it take you under,
    Feel your worries disappear
    Pow

    'Cause if you don't believe, it can't hurt you
    And when you let it leave, it can't hurt you
    'Cause if you don't believe, then you know
    Then you know it can never do you harm
    'Cause if you don't believe, it can't hurt you

    Got a picture and a passport and a number
    Give me access to the cloud I'm living under
    When I go there will I find a sense of wonder?
    Open up the gates

    'Cause if you don't believe, it can't hurt you
    And when you let it leave, it can't hurt you
    'Cause if you don't believe, then you know
    Then you know it can never do you harm
    'Cause if you don't believe, it can't hurt you Writer/s: JOSEPH LANGRIDGE-BROWN, CONOR MASON, DOMINIC CRAIK, JIM IRVIN, JULIAN EMERY
