Fallen Lyrics

So they say you're trouble, boy
Just because you like to destroy
All the things that bring the idiots joy
Well, what's wrong with a little destruction?

And the Kunst won't talk to you
'Cause you kissed St. Rollox Adieu
'Cause you robbed a supermarket or two
Well, who gives a damn about the prophets of Tesco?

Did I see you in a limousine
Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
Turn the rich into wine as you walk on the mean
Well the fallen are the virtuous among us
Walk among us
Never judge us
Yeah, we're all Up now and get 'em, boy
Up now and get 'em, boy
Drink to the devil and death at the doctors

Did I see you in a limousine
Flinging out the fish and the unleavened, well
Five thousand users fed today
Oh, as you feed us
Won't you lead us
To be blessed

So we stole and drank Champagne
On the seventh seal you said you never feel pain
I never feel pain, won't you hit me again?
I need a bit of black and blue to be a rotation

In my blood I felt bubbles burst
There was a flash of fist, an eyebrow burst
You've a lazy laugh and a red white shirt
I fall to the floor, fainting at the sight of blood

Did I see you in a limousine
Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
You turn the rich into wine
Walk on the mean
Be they Magdalene or virgin, you've already been
You've already been, already seen
That the fallen are the virtuous among us
Walk among us
Never judge us
To be blessed

So I'm sorry if I ever resisted
I never had a doubt you ever existed
I only have a problem when people insist on
Taking their hate, placing it on your name

Some say you're trouble, boy
Just because you like to destroy
You are the word, the word is 'destroy'
I break this bottle and think of you fondly

Did I see you in a limousine
Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
To the whore in a hostel
Or the scum of a scheme, turn the rich into wine
Walk on the mean
It's not a jag in the arm
It's a nail in the beam
On the barren Earth
You scatter your seed
Be they Magdalene or virgin
You've already been
Yeah, you've already been
We've already seen

Yeah, you've already been, we've already seen
That the fallen are the virtuous among us
Walk among us
Oh if you judge us
We're all damned
