"Uniform" as written by and Kele/lissack Okereke....
Run the risk of being accused
You cast your lot with the self-abused
But you were honest, for once

You take ten steps further, everyone, oh
You better speed up
Did I mention reverse?
Why get ahead when you can be third worst?

In a uniform
Of all that can hurt in a uniform
Why do yourself when you could do worse?

In a uniform
Of all that can hurt in a uniform
Why do yourself when you could be, yeah, when you could be runnin' (la la la la)

Do you like my dress? Oh, it's from seventy-four
Ripped in the arms from the girl before

Like everything I've owned or had
Like a charity gone bad

Lying to my phone (lying to my phone)
Cheating lines just to be alone

In a uniform
Of all that can hurt in a uniform
Why do yourself when you could do worse?

In a uniform
Of all that can hurt in a uniform
Why do yourself when you could be, yeah when you could be, oh

Runnin', all the time
Runnin', all the time

You're thinkin' like you're drunk but you're not, you're not
You're just stone-cold blind to what you've got
And you keep takin' all your cues from Iscariot, but you keep runnin'

You're thinkin' like you're drunk but you're not, you're not
You're just stone-cold blind to what you've got
And you keep takin' all your cues from Iscariot, but you keep runnin'
