"Bandits" as written by and Graeme Ross Campbell Charles Wishart Austin....
Cardboard crown across the side says "Fragile"
Shirt unbuttoned, pleasure fool, I'm agile
Ripped up forms, men with swords, tear the flesh
Eyes like shadows, one-way ticket, Marrakesh

Both doors and windows caught on fire, high speed train
Smashed up lives, torrential downpour, I need pain
Stuntmans' wife, back alley, mattress, wrath of addicts
Underwater, second language, mathematics

Run like a racehorse
Outright madness
Under the bridge
You'll make out like bandits

Make it stop
Hurry up
Go away
Fight it off
Hit it hard
Dig a hole
Show the way
Take it off
Break it up
Make it bleed
Try it now
Call it off
Kick it out
Let it breathe
Tie it down

Motion sickness, dry and yellowed, heaven beckons
Tornado boredom, target practice, seven seconds
Cimetiere, du mon prinaz, fair decision
Russels' viper, 3AM, midair collision

Silly girls and beat up boys all goin' fast
Lightin' fires, killin' music, blowin' glass
Whispered fury, deepest secret, seperate treasures
The eyes go pink, I slap your forehead, desperate measures

    General CommentI saw Buck 65 playing this in London a couple of years ago and he told the story behind it. As far as I recall, it was about being stuck under a bridge in the rain somewhere in the north of England (Leicestershire I think) and having some... ahem... fun times under there ;oD

    My OpinionI've spent a lot of time trying to figure out what this song means and I admit it's eluded me.

    But it sounds incredible.

    General CommentAwesome song, but "Cimetiere, du mon prinaz???" Really? Try something that actually exists, oh, like i dunno: Cimetière du Montparnasse (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…).
