  • I see houses
    Rows and rows
    Of red bricks
    I see black cars
    Some
    Blood-stained exit
    You got
    A feeling that you
    You've been
    In here before
    How many lives
    Will you waste
    How many tears
    Must you taste

    Before your freedom
    Ah-ah-ah
    Before your freedom
    Ah-ah-ah

    I see mountains
    Blood-red sunsets
    I see
    A billion stars
    Love deafened
    And betrayed
    You got
    A feeling that you
    You've been
    In here before
    How many lives
    Will you waste
    How many tears
    Must you taste

    Before your freedom
    Ah-ah-ah
    Before your freedom
    Ah-ah-ah

    Don't be late

    You got
    A feeling that you
    You've been
    In here before
    How many lives
    Will you waste
    How many tears
    Must you taste

    Before your freedom
    Ah-ah

    You got a feeling
    That you
    You've been
    Here before
    How many lives
    Will you waste
    How many blood
    Must you taste

    Before your freedom
    Oh

    It's just
    This murder
    Trouble and strife
    Turning me
    Into another guy
    It's just murder
    Trouble and strife
    Turning me
    Into another guy

    Oh

    Don't be late
    Don't be late
    Don't be late
    When I call you up

    Oooh-oooh-ooh-ooh
    Oooh-oooh-ooh-ooh
    Oooh-oooh-ooh-ooh
    Oooh-oooh-ooh-ooh

    Ooh
    Oh-my, my, my, my
    My, my, my, aaah Writer/s: RICHARD ASHCROFT
