Schumacher the Champagne

Album: This Modern Glitch (2011)
  • Schumacher the Champagne
    My teeth have never looked quite this yellow and my body never quite this fat
    I'll pay well over the odds just to have some teenage abandoned bar
    I hit the ice of the fifth of Jan and I swear it was an act of faith

    But I don't get angry when I'm feeling down
    I just take my thoughts into the centre of town
    And Schumacher the Champagne never needed good cause to celebrate
    Schumacher the Champagne, might as well be proud of last place

    We used to set ourselves on fire when chemistry was twice a week
    And now I pay for it over a counter whilst they become fitness freaks
    My bad habits are taking over all the good left inside
    But I don't get angry when I'm feeling down

    I just take my thoughts into the centre of town
    And Schumacher the Champagne never needed good cause to celebrate
    Schumacher the Champagne, might as well be proud of last place
    And Schumacher the Champagne never needed good cause to celebrate

    Oh take me as I am
    Oh take me as I am
    Oh take me as I am
    or not at all

    Or not at all
    Or not at all
    Or not at all
    Or not at all
    Or not at all Writer/s: MATTHEW EDWARD MURPHY, DANIEL JOSEPH HAGGIS, TORD OEVERLAND KNUDSEN
