why bother talking
if nobody's listening?
blame it on the final
phase of your induction
why bother talking
if nobody's listening?
name it as a firstborn
the firstborn is dead

there's a knife in my hand
covered in blood, i can't understand

WHY, FUCKER, WHY?

wave upon wave upon
wave upon wave

why bother sitting?
i can't stand sitting
just blame it on someone
it's your own instruction
why bother talking
if nobody's listening?
name it as a firstborn
the firstborn's alive

there's a knife in my hand
covered in blood, i can't understand

WHY, FUCKER, WHY?
WHY, WHY, WHY, WHY?

i've waited so long
i've waited so long
to see what it takes
i can't say no
i can't say no
to see what it takes

aah aah aah
aah aah aah

we're letting it go
just before time
sink to the bottom
of our lives
we're letting it go
before our time
helping us through our sad lives

do you believe in magic?
do you believe in magic?
do you believe in magic?
do you believe in magic?

wave upon wave upon
wave upon wave

    General CommentThis has to be one of my top biffy songs. They are my favourite band ever. I think the song is about someone who is so highly strung and stressed and delusioned that they lost it and kill someone? Would love to hear responses!
