"Hierarchy" as written by and Shingai Elizabeth Maria/smith Shoniwa....
Where did my brave side go?
T'was beaten by thieves
Who snatched with no hands
Said they promised to
Take us to enchanted lands
And I hope you understand

Like falling leaves
From the sky we'd never touch the ground Why dare to shovel dreams that we have found Tired of being gagged and bound

The hierarchy, the hierarchy you search for (x3)

The taste of bitter fruit
Your tongue was ready
You thought your sense astute
You saw us laugh while we
Were crying inside
Spittin blood just like a mudslide

It's time to chance
Chance the dance you never
Thought you could do
My arms are open wide,
A great bayoux
And I hope that so are you


When this hierarchy, the hierarchy you search for (it happens) The hierarchy the hierarchy we search for (that's the) The hierarchy the monarchy's going to fall, and you want more, for?

Before you get bored
Look what you've done now
Is it worth the blood
We might only be here for a while

Where have you been
The child with the golden wings
I heard you sing
The child with those goddamn wings
Slaughter the skeletons from my soul

    It's such a good song.
    I love how The Noisettes seem to promote love and peace.

    I think this part might be about organized religion and how it's pointless to kill over beliefs when we only live for so long. We could just be enjoying our lives instead.
