If only we could fly...

The Blackout style
Gareth Lawrence
Take 'em to the Merthyr Bridge
Can you feel it?

My g-g-generation
Get the fuck up!
My g-g-generation
Are you ready?
Do you know where you are?

Welcome to the valleys punk, take a look around
It's The Blackout fucking up your town
We downloaded the shockwave
For all the ladies in the cave to get your groove on
Maybe I’m the one who flew over the cuckoo's nest
But guess who's next? (Who?)
Generation X, generation strange
Sun don't even shine through our window pane

So go ahead and talk shit
Talk shit about me
Go ahead and talk shit
About my g-g-generation

’Cause we don't, don't give a fuck
And we won't ever give a fuck
Until you, you give a fuck about me
And my generation

Hey kid, take my advice
You don't want to step into a big pile of shit
Captain's drunk, your world is Titanic
Floating on the funk, so get your groove on
Maybe I am just a little fucked up
Life's just a little fucked up
Generation X, generation strange
Sun don't even shine through our window pane

So go ahead and talk shit
Talk shit about me
Go ahead and talk shit
About my g-g-generation

’Cause we don't, don't give a fuck
And we won't ever give a fuck
Until you, you give a fuck about me
And my generation
’Cause we don't, don't give a fuck
And we won't ever give a fuck
Until you, you give a fuck about me
And my generation

Who gets the blame?
You get the blame, and I get the blame
Who gets the blame?
You get the blame, and I get the blame
Do you think we can fly?
Do you think we can fly?
Do you think we can fly?
Well I do, I do
Fly!

DJ bass-off! Bring it on!
The Blackout love Limp Bizkit!

So go ahead and talk shit
Talk shit about me
Go ahead and talk shit
About my g-g-generation

’Cause we don't, don't give a fuck
And we won't ever give a fuck
Until you, you give a fuck about me
And my generation
’Cause we don't, don't give a fuck
And we won't ever give a fuck
Until you, you give a fuck about me
And my generation

    General CommentIt's actually "Take 'em to the MERTHYR bridge"

    MERTHYR Tydfil is there home town, and theres a big bridge there (Y)

    They barely changed the song really :/ not really putting a mark on the song as theirs. hm.

    General CommentOkay, so as well as the Merthyr bit, it's not 'Gav worms' (wtf?) but 'Gareth Lawrence,' a.k.a. Snoz, and you'll notice that that part is pretty much just drums.
    Also, I think 'The Blackout love their bass jam' is actually 'The Blackout love Limp Bizkit,' referring to the original artist.

    Although they didn't really change it a lot, I much prefer this to the original version. And it kicks ass live!!!
