lyrics

You were smarter than me
But you broke a heel
We were running for the bus
That levelled the field

They put mercury in the oranges
Poisoned the village pump
Breath live nerve gas

You wield the cosh
I’ll hold them up
You wear the trousers
I’ll be the mystic

We’ll out those fuckers baby
We’ll out those fuckers

You were harder than me
But you broke a heel
We were running in the street
That levelled the field

I don’t see your name in The Lives Of The Saints
But you do get a mention in the book of evidence
Here’s your mention in the book of evidence

You wield the cosh
I’ll hold them up
You wear the trousers
I’ll be the mystic

Out if eth corner of my eye
You were standing on the corner
I asked you
Is that cigar smoke or teargas?
You said, “What’s the difference?”
But I was looking or an answer
I was kind of looking for an answer

You wield the cosh
I’ll hold them up
You wear the trousers
I’ll be the mystic

Scratching around
Holding our balls
Waiting for conquering lions
Taking our turns on the edge of town
On your knees on the gravel ground

Wheels are spinning kicking up dust
Waiting or conquering lions

Relax my friend
It’s only wishful thinking

If I lost you I would write your name in the street

Wishing won’t make you a soldier
