Nitrogen Pink

Album: Polly Scattergood (2007)
  • Nitrogen pink and a whole load of Wednesdays
    They're these sweet rotting memories
    That keep you alive

    Nitrogen pink, please
    Throw me a moment just to
    Get my composure and to
    Stamp on a fly

    And the boys had they're pearls
    And the girls had to backs
    And everybody was laughing at you
    Singing isn't it, isn't it, isn't it
    Such a funny old world the way tragedy strikes

    Nitrogen pink and a whole load of Wednesdays
    They're these sweet rotting memories
    That keep you alive
    Nitrogen Pink please throw me a moment just to
    Get my composure and to stamp on a fly

    And the blind man was seeing clouds all grey
    Until the weather man blew his rain away
    And nobody, nobody, nobody make a sound

    Nitrogen pink and a pill for my breakfast
    And a bag full of ketchup that he spilt on his tie
    Nitrogen pink for the unwritten bible
    About this mad mad days survival
    Till he kicked it up in the flames

    And all the education daddy, it never paid
    Because the fat man took my innocence away
    And I though and I thought and I thought
    You said all the streets were paved with gold

    Nitrogen pink for the real captain red beard
    For the unlikely pianist, the sad and the gay
    Nitrogen pink for the man in the corner
    For the pig in the slaughter house
    The sweet melody

    Played slot machines got so rich then we lost it
    Found a hole in my pocket
    Crack a smile and we're okay

    That long drive home
    Nothing much ever after
    Nothing hurts me more than laughter
    Man I wish you could be here

    Nitrogen pink and a whole load of Wednesdays
    They're these sweet rotting memories
    That keep you alive

    Nitrogen pink, please
    Throw me a moment just to
    Get my composure and to
    Wave you good bye
