It might come in a letter,
Darkness falls in a telephone call;
I await the unexpected
With one ear to the party wall.
Is it the pricking of the conscience,
Is it the itching of hair shirt,
Is it the dictionary definition
Of a precipice to skirt?
It's the nutter alert.

Though this face is familiar
Something in it has bred contempt;
I never asked for your opinion
Or your back-handed compliments.
Oh, but here comes that special nonsense
All the words out in a spurt,
The unhinging of the trolley
As the mouth begins to blurt...
It's the nutter alert

I can see we're in trouble
From that glint in the eye you've got;
There's no sense to the story,
Comprehensively lost, the plot.
And how contorted is that logic
You so forcefully exert:
You're a car crash in the making,
Head-on, that's a racing cert.
It's the nutter alert,
This is the nutter alert.

    General CommentThose are the lyrics for Every Bloody Emperor.

    These are the correct lyrics for this song:

    It might come in a letter,
    Darkness falls in a telephone call;
    I await the unexpected
    With one ear to the party wall.
    Is it the pricking of the conscience,
    Is it the itching of hair shirt,
    Is it the dictionary definition
    Of a precipice to skirt?
    It's the nutter alert.

    Though this face is familiar
    Something in it has bred contempt;
    I never asked for your opinion
    Or your back-handed compliments.
    Oh, but here comes that special nonsense
    All the words out in a spurt,
    The unhinging of the trolley
    As the mouth begins to blurt...
    It's the nutter alert

    I can see we're in trouble
    From that glint in the eye you've got;
    There's no sense to the story,
    Comprehensively lost, the plot.
    And how contorted is that logic
    You so forcefully exert:
    You're a car crash in the making,
    Head-on, that's a racing cert.
    It's the nutter alert,
    This is the nutter alert.
