I can make your head turn with just one word
I don't need no bombs to make my voice heard
Why when you strike me do you think I'll agree?
Which bit did you not like to begin with?

All those eternal songs
Rolling from your tongues
Dogmatic, xenophobic, folly

I can make your head turn with just one word
I don't need no bombs to make my voice heard
I can make you see that there's both you and me
What else could there be that we so need?

You can choose to ignore
But I've made you make that choice
New fangled ways to use your voice

So much money wasted
I'd like to bring you paper
We're all just as mad as each other

I can make your head turn with just one one word
I don't need no bombs to make my voice heard
I can make you see pas both you and me
What else could there be that we so need?

    General CommentSome lyrics just have the power inside, and the first line is this case. Makes me feel blue.

    General Commentjesus, I saw them live on thursday and it was so fucking great, I'd never experienced anything like that before... rupert's wicked, really wicked and the way he sang bombs was just unique.

    General CommentRupert says: Bombs was inspired by the bombing done by our government during the Bosnian war coupled with some of the metaethical theories wrtten by Christine Korsgaard(I think that was her name), an American Kantian philosopher. Although I can't remember the stories in the news or the philosophy that well now, the song has a very general, clear message.

    The tune for the verse is pretty much nicked from Blondie's 'Gloria', which was a hit at the time.
