  • History's so strong
    History's so strong
    History's so strong
    History's so strong

    Sing another drinking song the honky tonk will do
    Make another breaking bomb your favorite ingénue
    This the distant dawn
    This the distant dawn

    I put my cards up on the table
    I do this speak cause I am able
    One pixie's broken down devotion
    I threw my pistol in the ocean
    Eyes wide with revelation
    Shine at the police station
    And when the verdict comes round
    I'm sure that you will go down

    Stay all night, we'll save the population
    Pistol and its pawn
    Sail it through the lexicon
    Pistol and its pawn
    Blood and borderlines be drawn

    Take another bottle down the brothel and the shrew
    Make another awful sound, a rather gothic brew
    History's so strong
    History's so strong

    I put my cards up on the table
    I do this speak cause I am able
    One pixie's broken down devotion
    I threw my pistol in the ocean
    Eyes wide with revelation
    Shine at the police station
    And when the verdict comes round
    I'm sure that you will go down

    Stay all night, we'll save the population Writer/s: ANTHONY KIEDIS, CHAD SMITH, JOHN FRUSCIANTE, MICHAEL BALZARY
