Shriekback - Nerve

To my knowledge, these lyrics were only ever available on the Shriekback Digital Conspiracy mailing list as one of the Songs of the Week.  The lyric transcription was made for the post, then was corrected by the band to provide accuracy.

Feel free to sing along!



NERVE by Shriekbackxml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /

Bassline has no point of view
Impatient
Waiting for a statement
Faith don’t come so easily
This proves nothing
Only bursting bubbles
Legs open, eyes crossed
Pressing on the nerve
We all like that
We all like that

Arafat got such evil eyes
cased in armour
Twenty thousand bodyguards
Only trust the devil I know
Drawing circles
Gonna call him up now
head line, heart line
Pressing on the nerve
We all like that
We all like that

Pumping, Gushing, Running, Hiding
Pull tighter
Pull tighter
played on one string
fire is inside
Expressed in Molotovs
Click, flash, no pictures
Make mine Kalashnikov
Compound fracture
Pressing on the nerve
We all like that
We all like that
