"Fire Department" as written by and Jemima Pearl Abegg Jamin Orrall....
Stand down, beat it in, eyes closed tight
It was cold last year when you blocked me out
Our ships went down on that night
These hearts were drowning but you bought me out

This time I'm held up by a safety pin
Safety pin oh a safety pin
Stuck and sewn up like a mannequin
A mannequin, mannequin, mannequin
You can call the god damn fire department
That's the last time I'll ever let you in
You can call the god damn fire department
That's the last time I'll ever let you in

Carve out, belt up, I can see
You see me drowning but you block me out
Our ships were sunk on that night
These hearts were drowning but you bought me out

This time I'm held up by a safety pin
Safety pin oh a safety pin
Stuck and sewn up like a mannequin
A mannequin, mannequin, mannequin
Just don't, just don't even use you lungs
Cause that's the last time I'll ever let you in
Just don't, just don't even use you damn lungs
Cause that's the last time I'll ever let you in

Bloodshot eyes and I look up
You take the water from my lungs to fill your cup
This is no longer fair
This is no longer fair
This is no longer fair
This is no longer fair!

This time I'm held up by a safety pin
Safety pin oh a safety pin
Stuck and sewn up like a mannequin
A mannequin, mannequin, mannequin
You can call the god damn fire department
That's the last time I'll ever let you in
You can call the god damn fire department
That's the last time I'll ever let you in

This time I'm held up by a safety pin
Safety pin oh a safety pin
Stuck and sewn up like a mannequin
A mannequin, mannequin, mannequin
Just don't, just don't even use you lungs
Cause that's that last time I'll ever let you in
Just don't, just don't even use you damn lungs
Cause that's that last time I'll ever let you in

    General CommentI think this song is simply about someone hurting you and messing you around - not sure. It's very good though - why are there no comments??

    General CommentYeah, why the hell aren't there any comments? I love this song. Only BYOP could get away with a song sounding like this.

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship in which the singer is giving more than getting ("this is no longer fair") and is fed up with it ("that's the last time I'll ever let you in"). The person is changing and compromising themself ("stuck and sewn up like a mannequin") to get the other person to stay with them, even if the relationship is screwing them up.

    but goddamn is it catchy and wonderful.

    General CommentThis sounds to be about a one-way relationship, where he takes her for granted to always give what he needs, and she's just about had enough.

    I love this song :]
