Here every bird can fly Go where they will And every bird can sing To tell of good or ill But though this has been true In memory’s rein A black road they have built And fenced the land with chains And so when you would fly And would be free The black road now confines Your righteous liberty And so when you would sing Of true and false The black road has a rope To suffocate your voice They say the black road stands In time of need But it squirms like a snake To bite the hand that feeds A small bird tried to fly ‘Cross the black road Now she can sing no more Nor fly, for she is dead. Here every bird should fly Go where they will And every bird should sing To tell of good or ill

You got a Porsche, I got a hammer Huh huh huh Come on then I’m getting soaked standing here With you just sat in your ridiculous vehicle Standing here, it’s sodding cold While you fiddle with your climate control

I’m gonna teach myself I will be your hero I will learn from the best Watch movies and TV shows You gotta be tough Gotta show ‘em who’s boss But most of all it seems to me You gotta get cross Fancy gun looks cool And super power’s a help Touch of magic comes in handy And of course colossal wealth But none of these will work And no-one gives a toss If you don’t stare intensely And act as if you’re cross So here I am I’ve armed myself With all these hero’s skills You don’t need to look no further I’m the one who kills for you I am your knight in shining armour On a winged horse And all will bow before me When they see I’m very cross I’ll charge around the neighbourhood I’ll put on such a show And everyone will look and see That I am your hero They’ll be impressed but if they’re not They’ll find it to their cost There’s no getting away from me Cos now I’m very cross

Someone do something, someone be first Everything’s turning to ashes and dust The crows are lining up along the side of the road The crows are lining up along the side of the road What did you think would happen? What did you think would happen? Head in the clouds Head in the sand Head up your arse Head in your hands What did you think would happen? What did you think would happen? Done with your talking, run out of trust Cos everything’s turning to ashes and dust What did you think would happen? What did you think would happen? Money won’t help you, you’re in it with us Now everything’s turning to ashes and dust The crows are lining up along the side of the road The crows are lining up along the side of the road What did you think would happen? What did you think would happen? The crows are lining up along the side of the road The crows are lining up along the side of the road The crows are lining up along the side of the road

Monkey Men 03:16
Here come the monkey men Rat a tat tat Wind em up so They rat a tat tat Shields are drumming The rat a tat tat Wave their sticks They rat a tat tat See the pretty uniforms And their big black boots Got a hard on For rat a tat tat Give the nod then Rat a tat tat Off the leash for Rat a tat tat Bones to crack By rat a tat tat See the pretty uniforms And their shiny boots See the pretty uniforms Makes you want to think They signed up for The rat a tat tat What they came for The rat a tat tat Cha Cha Cha for The rat a tat tat All the guys go Rat a tat tat See the pretty uniforms And their marching boots
