Boy
Keep your stories close to your chest
To your chest
I said boy
Keep your secrets secret

They will make you an exhibit
Nail you to a wall
Something safe for the fireplace
A warning for their kids
For their kids

Boy
Keep your stories close to your chest
To your chest
I said boy
Keep your secrets secret

They will make you an exhibit
Nail you to a wall
Something safe for the fireplace
A warning for their kids
For their kids

    General Commentwhen i first heard this song, i had no idea it was by bloc party. the opening guitar part is just not something i think theyd do.

    meaning seems obvious (i think). dont go around telling your secrets to everyone.

    And for some reason this song reminds me of the warren zevon song "werwolves of london". I dont know why tho.

    General Commentthe correct lyrics are:

    Boy
    Keep your stories close to your chest
    To your chest
    I said boy
    Keep your secrets secret

    They will make you an exhibit
    Nail you to a wall
    Something safe for the fireplace
    A warning for their kids
    For their kids

    Boy
    Keep your stories close to your chest
    To your chest
    I said boy
    Keep your secrets secret

    They will make you an exhibit
    Nail you to a wall
    Something safe for the fireplace
    A warning for their kids
    For their kids
