Sung by Ford Pier


Violins will not the spirit lift
Like another complimentary gift
Oh yeah

Act your age and everybody knows
What you like and where your money goes
Poisoning the seeds we sow today
Pissing in the estuaries

Hold your head up
Sell your sorrow
Lonely games with hungry gallows
Lowly, slowly, upright and holy
Seems your ending needs some mending

Hiding in the shadows, oh we do it well
Heaven's never been as bold as hell
Always shipped as frozen, sold as fresh
Take a number
Bitch to Bangladesh
