Fingers Never Bleed

  • All alone, a boring job
    Mincing words to fall asleep
    Expertise on air guitar
    So your fingers never bleed

    I know you think you could do this without me
    But I know I could do without you
    Failed ambitions held up on a trident
    Hope predictions of future come true

    All the tin can buildings rattle the sidewalk
    All the cars upturned talk like the trains
    Ten thousand red balloons over New York
    Hope the bridges all burn your life away

    So you banned a friend from
    Took the marrow from disease
    White collar criminal
    So his fingers never bleed

    I know you think you could do this without me
    But I know I could do without you
    Failed ambitions held up on tridents
    Hope predictions of future come true

    All the tin can buildings rattle the sidewalk
    All the cars upturned talk like the trains
    Ten thousand red balloons over New York
    Hope the bridges all burn your life away Writer/s: Anand Mathew Wilder, Christopher E Keating
