  • We're rotten fruit
    We're damaged goods
    What the hell, we've got nothing more to lose

    All evidence has been buried
    All tapes have been erased
    But your footsteps give you away
    So you're backtracking

    Ah ah ah
    You fell into our arms
    You fell into our arms
    We tried but there was nothing we could do
    Nothing we could do
    You fell into our,
    You fell into a

    We're rotten fruit
    We're damaged goods
    What the hell, we've got nothing more to lose
    One gust and we will probably crumble
    We're backdrifters Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
