"The Handsome Life Of Swing" as written by and Michael Richard/watkins Lewis....
{write to someone, let the subject burn,
If it's slow for my reply then ignore the wait,
But as long as you want everything and as long as you won't ever do,
Return, return, return to you}

Point the blame, push the blame, who's to blame today?
Point your finger, lose your mind, all you do is pray,
Look out, get down, fall down, your masquerade will do,
But in time my friend we all will see right through.

Inside won't be here to stay,
King for a day, that's all I'll say.

(such a party bum, you should know that right away,
Let the subject burn, and wish that all the fucking time, )

Point the blame, push the blame, who's to blame today?
Point your finger, lose your mind, all you do is play.
Look out, get down, fall down, your masquerade will do,
But in time my friend we all will see right through.

Yes, in time, won't be here to stay,
King for a day, that's all I'll say.

But here, thought I got a home,
Sit down, got a home,
Got a home, got a home,
Got home, and I know.

    General Commentsomeone's gotta figure out what he's saying after "Such a party bum, You should know that right away,
    Let the subject burn, and wish that all the fucking time"
    because its really getting annoying not knowing, and no website has it AT ALL

    I think the song is pretty self explanitory, in that there really isnt any hidden meanings in it, all that I dont get is the title of the song, but i guess with a lot of lostprophets songs there are a lot of weird titles

    General CommentTo me, What I'm thinking is the Title, The Handsome Life of Swing....Don't they mean swing, as in swinging?
    I mean, I'm not saying I'm completely right but the first bit..."Write to someone". the fact that it's just "someone" is like they're swinging. I think the rest can be put into that perspective too.
