TAKE THE CROWN : 5 novembre 2012

BE A BOY

When you’re young you hope to be
Menacing in vanity 6 feet tall, maybe more
Bigger now than before
They said it was leaving me
The magic was leaving me
I don’t think so
I don’t think so
They said it was leaving
They said it with joy
Now I could make this last forever
And be a boy, and be a boy
When you’re young you hope to see
And carve your name into the street
And bounce your words off satellites
That keep the wasted up tonight
They said it was leaving me
The magic was leaving me
I don’t think so
I don’t think so
They said it was leaving
They said it with joy
Now I could make this last forever
And be a boy, and be a boy
There’s safety in the jungle
If you treat it like a toy
Make sure you talk to strangers
And be a boy, and be a boy
Be a boy
They said it was leaving me
The magic was leaving me
I don’t think so
I don’t think so
All the boys are gonna be someone
Your time did come but now it’s gone
Your time did come but now it’s gone
It takes a big man to be someone
All the boys are gonna be someone
Your time did come but now it’s gone
Your time did come but now it’s gone
It takes a big man to be someone
I’m half your age and lived twice your life
And I own the streets, you walk tonight
Your time did come but it’s no more
It takes a big man to be someone
I’m half your age and lived twice your life
And I don’t sleep alone tonight
Your time did come but it’s no more
It takes a big man to be someone

GOSPEL

I used to think about it when I was a little one all alone
Used to be so excited, so excited on my own
I used to think about it when I was a little one all alone
Used to be so excited, so excited in my home
You wouldn’t believe it even if I told ya
This little girl with too much exposure
Big bad world, eyes black like a raven
I knew right then my soul needed saving
You were way out of my league back then
Go anyway, be a man
I am sixteen and I love you and I’m standing on your step
I took a photograph in my mind
But I don’t know where it’s kept
I’m embarrassing and limited with thoughts I have repressed
But I’m sixteen and I love you and I haven’t lost it yet

I used to think about it when I was a little one all alone
Used to be so excited, so excited in my home
I used to think about it when I was a little one all alone
Used to be all about it, all about it on my own
You wouldn’t believe it even if I told ya
This little girl with too much exposure
Big bad world, eyes black like a raven
I knew right then my soul needed saving
This is the end
You were way out of my league back then
Go anyway, be a man
I am sixteen and I love you and I’m standing on your step
I took a photograph in my mind
But I don’t know where it’s kept
I’m embarrassing and limited with thoughts I have repressed
But I’m sixteen and I love you and I haven’t lost it yet

Let me be your gospel
Baby, we’ve got history
Let me be your gospel
Baby, we’ve got history
This is the end, my faithful friend (Let me be your gospel / Baby, we’ve got history)
The bitter end, coming home again (Let me be your gospel / Baby, we’ve got history)
This is the end
Drink to you, you always wished me well
And those that don’t “go fuck yourself”
Drink to you, you always wished me well
And those that don’t “go fuck yourself”
This is the end

CANDY

I was there to witness
Candice’s in her buisness
She wants the boys to notice
Her rainbows and her ponies
She was educated
But could not count to ten
Now she got lots of different horses
By lots of different men and I say
Liberate your sons and daughters
The bush is hot
But in the hole there’s water
You can get some, when they give it
Nothing sacred, but it’s a living

Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too high or a little too low
Got no self-esteem and vertigo
Cos she thinks she’s made of candy
Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too loud or a little too close
Got a hurricane at the back of her throat
Cos she thinks she’s made of candy

Ring a ring of roses
Whoever gets the closest
She comes and she goes
As the war of the roses
Mother was a victim
Father beat the system
By moving bricks to Brixton
And learning how to fix them
Liberate your sons and daughters
The bush is hot
But in the hole there’s water
As you win
She’ll be the hollywood love
And if it don’t feel good what are you doing it for?
Now tell me

Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too high or a little too low
Got no self-esteem and vertigo
cos she thinks she’s made of candy
Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too loud or a little too close
Got a hurricane at the back of her throat
Cos she thinks she’s made of candy

Liberate your sons and daughters
The bush is hot But in the hole there’s water
As you will
She’ll be the hollywood love
And if it don’t feel good what are you doing it for?
What are you doing it for (repeat * 8)

Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too high or a little too low
Got no self-esteem and vertigo
Cos she thinks she’s made of candy
Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too loud or a little too close
Got a hurricane at the back of her throat
Cos she thinks she’s made of candy (repeat)

DIFFERENT

When I look you in the eyes,
Something deep inside me dies,
’cause I know you won’t get better, better, better…
You’d rather be right than be loved,
The only thing I’ve understood
Nothing’s ever good enough.
I stumble through the words as they’re leaving me,
Tremble at the sight of Your Majesty,
And I cut myself just to get them out.
This time I’ll be different, I promise you,
This time I’ll be special, you know I will,
Just don’t leave with me in your eyes.
This time I’ll be better, I want you to know,
This time I’ll be special, oh God, make it so,
Just don’t leave with me in your eyes, your eyes, your eyes…
You took my youth, you took my health,
And if you’re not here I’ll fight myself
You’re supposed to make this better, better, better
No self-control and no reason why,
If I don’t change, then we both die,
This is it for you and I.
Blisters at the end of my fingertips,
Praying to a God I don’t think exist
Will you listen now?
Can you forgive me somehow?
This time I’ll be different, I promise you,
This time I’ll be special, you know I will,
Just don’t leave with me in your eyes.
This time I’ll be better, I want you to know,
This time I’ll be special, oh God, make it so,
Just don’t leave with me in your eyes, your eyes, your eyes…
Closer now to the end,
If love was the answer,
Then hope was the question.
Closer now, let’s pretend
We’ve never been out here before.
This time I’ll be different, I promise you,
This time I’ll be special, you know I will,
Don’t leave with me in your eyes.

S**T ON THE RADIO

ALL THAT I WANT

Maybe you know, you should cause it shows
Caught me looking at your legs, see through your clothes
I hold you goodbye just a little too long
We don’t act like it’s wrong
See where you’ve been, you looked to the side
Not in the eyes, no not in his eyes anymore
His eyes
I know the secret skinned you alive
But the heart has chosen
All that I want
Is to pick you up and out of that dress
Carry it to the depths
And feel the sin of your flesh
It’s all that I want
Arching your back with that look on your face
All that I need’s an hour of space
When did it change?
I guess when we started sweeping under carpets
I’ll talk you to sleep
And no one will know
He hasn’t a heart so he can’t change your soul anymore
Your soul
I know the secret skinned you alive
But the heart has chosen
All that I want
Is to pick you up and out of that dress
Carry it to the depths
Feel the sin of your flesh
Now I confess
Do you think of me less?
Get it off your chest
But if you wear that dress
You are the one
And I wanna tear your clothes off baby
But you’d be homeless in your heart
All that I want
Is to pick you up and out of that dress
Carry it to the depths
Feel the sin of your flesh
Now I confess
Do you think of me less?
Get it off your chest
But if you wear that dress
You are the one

HUNTING FOR YOU

i walk around these empty streets
they say there’s nothing left for me
i say there’s no one here for you
down in the land,
the land of the blind
the one eyed king,
he stole my mind and i let him
everything i like’s illegal, seductive
addictive immoral, corrosive, destructive
but i’ve got kind words in my heart.
it’s a passion
your fashions, in fashion
tonight i’m hunting for you
tonight i’m hunting for you
tonight i’m hunting for…
the stone is set,
the dye is cast
i am the wreckage of my past
and i am not afraid to ask
i sail away my sanity j
ust to find some company
now darling
everything i like’s illegal, seductive
addictive immoral, corrosive, destructive
your addiction to danger
makes me no stranger
it’s fashion, oh fashion
tonight i’m hunting for you
i’ll be good but i won’t be cheap
there is no limit here for me
and i’ll take everything i need
i mean everything, everything
you can waste away in fashion
when you chase the daylight home
you can waste away in fashion
when you chase the daylight home
tonight i’m hunting for you
you can waste away in fashion
tonight i’m hunting for you
when you chase the daylight
home tonight i’m hunting for you

INTO THE SILENCE

When karma reaches you
I wanna be there just in case it needs help
You made me be so cruel to myself
The love of power or the power of love
you need help
When karma reaches you
I want to be there to catch that fall
Get down beside you and watch you crawl
How does it feel to be alone?
Down there
When you fall apart again
It won’t break my heart
If I told you my secrets
You’d never look at me the same way
Well I guess you’re right,
some things I can’t change
When karma reaches you
I wanna be there
just in case it needs help
I won’t fall apart again
I don’t test my heart
Is there any wonder
With this sadness inside us
Was it sent for the hunger?
Was it meant to divide us?
Into the silence
Into the silence
Into the silence
Into the silence
When karma reaches you
I wanna be there to catch that fall
Get down beside you and watch you crawl
How does it feel to be alone?
Down there
Don’t fall apart again
Don’t test my heart
Is there any wonder
With this sadness inside her
Was it sent for the hunger?
Was it sent to divide us?
Into the silence
Into the silence
Into the silence
Into the silence

NOT LIKE THE OTHERS

You do something that reminds me
The days of rage are now behind me
I have to live outside the law
Cause I’m a naughty boy with a dirty habit
Tryin to use some teenage magic pickin’
Panties off the floor
And when she comes, she comes for hours
No, she don’t fake for no one, she don’t fake for no one
And the flaw gives it away with you
It’s true, I was close to do
And fall in love
Oh baby, please
Begging you darling please
Under the covers
You and me are not like the others
You and me are not like the others
Please
Begging you darling please
God loves a lover
You and me are not like the others
You and me are not like the others
You do something that reminds me
I’ve no resistance, follow blindly
And baby, that’s what I came here for
Cause you pulled me out of my sedation
Back to the side street meditation
Another sexual metaphor
So when you come, she crawl for hours
No, I don’t fake for no one
She don’t fake for no one
And the flaw gives it away with you
It’s true, I was close to do
And fall in love
Please
Begging youdarling please
Under the covers
You and me are not like the others
You and me are not like the others
Please
Begging you darling please
God loves a lover
You and me are not like the others
You and me are not like the others
We are not like the others
Under, under the covers
God loves,
God loves a lover
We are not like the others
We are not like the others
Under, under the covers
God loves,
God loves a lover
We are not like the others
Please
Begging, my darling please
Under the covers
You and me are not like the others
You and me are not like the others
Please
Begging, my darling please
God loves a lover
You and me are not like the others
You and me are not like the others

LOSERS

There will always be someone better than you
Even if you’re the best
So let’s stop the competition now
Or we will both be losers
And I’m ashamed I ever tried to be higher than the rest
But brother I am not alone
We’ve all tried to be on top of the world somehow
‘Cause we have all been losers
I don’t wanna be laid down
No I don’t wanna die knowing
That I spent so much time when I was young
Just trying to be the winner
So I wanna make it clear now
I wanna make it known
That I don’t care about any of that shit no more
Don’t care about being a winner
Or being smooth with women
Or going out on Fridays
Being the life of parties
No, no more, no
There will always be someone worse than you
Sister don’t let it get to your head
‘Cause you won’t be on top of the world so long
In constant competition
This ain’t about no one in particular
But I could list a few I’m removing myself from the queue
Don’t care about being a winner
Or being smooth with women
Or going out on Fridays
Being the life of parties
Don’t care about being harder
Or being Daddy’s favorite
Or if you think I’m a mimic
Or if I am a loser
Don’t care about being a winner
Or being smooth with women
Or going out on Fridays
Being the life of parties
Don’t care about being harder
Or being Daddy’s favorite
Or if you think I’m a mimic
Or if I am a loser
No, no more
No more
No more
No more
No more
No more

REVERSE

We’re in land on fire In the middle of the sea
When you close your eyes
Tell me what you hear
Tell me what you feel
When you cross that heart
And you hope to die
You might get your chance
It could be tonight, could be tonight
Oooooo
Can you feel it coming
Oooooo
Can you feel the calling
So put your hand in my hand
Watch them burning down this island
To see your brown eyes there
Lit by the riots that they’re running from
It’s just a bad day
Not a bad life I’ve seen your eyes
You were born to fight
Born to fight
There’ll be someone here
When they come for me
They need to cross that place
Where a heart should be,
Where a heart should be
Oooooo
Can you feel the calling
Oooooo
Can you feel the calling
May this moment of surrender
Live in your heart forever
The earth will move and shake
But they can never keep us apart
Born to the life they gave us
Of bitterness and failures
Though I may lose myself
They can never keep us apart
We’re in a land on fire In the middle of the sea
When I close my eyes
Only you, only me
Oooooo
This is our finest hour
Underneath the seats of power
The earth will break the chains
You know they’ll never
Keep us apart
So put your hand in my hand
God knows, we own this island
The truth will move and shake
But they can never keep us apart

EIGHT LETTERS

We became the parade on the streets that we once cleaned,
Expendable soldiers smiling at anything R
aised on a feeling our lives will have meaning eventually
We were once the answer and then you discover
Your actually just one thing after another and
What was the question and why was the lesson so deafening.
This all that matters now
And that was all that happened anyhow
You can look back but don’t stare
Maybe I can love you out of there
And when I went away what I forgot to say was
All I have to say eight letter three words one meaning
And outside forces didn’t make it easy so
I thought I’d go before you leave me
Self preservation was no explanation for anything
Oh but the truth is more than we’ll ever comprehend
I’ve just started to understand my friend all of that distance
cause I fell in love with the enemy
This all that matters now
And that was all that happened anyhow
You can look back but don’t stare
Maybe I can love you out of there
And when I went away what I forgot to say was
all I had to say eight letter three words one meaning
eight letter three words one meaning
At last we meet on no man’s land just footprints in the sand
We meet on no man’s land at last
And when I went away what I forgot to say was
all I had to say eight letter three words one meaning
eight letter three words one meaning
One meaning, just one meaning, one meaning
