Hurry up boy
You're making me wait
Twist my arm boy
Chinese burn
You smell like shit boy
What have you been doing?
You smell like shit boy
Me and you

Suffocate you
Sweat and semen
Negate desire
With promises
We've all been hurt boy
And learnt the hard way
Tear it down boy
Start again

God sends disasters
God sent you to me

Why so worried?
You didn't let me down
Why so sad boy?
You didn't wear me out
If you don't feel it
Like the others
If you don't feel it
You never will

God sends disasters
God sends disasters

The flames of desire have taken hold
If I don't burn with you I burn alone

    General Comment:this song should be taken out, it is not even a legitimate bloc party song.

    My Opinion:I've never heard the song, but I think that from the second chorus, the lyrics are very powerful. I understand this is a very young, and not so legitimate song, but I still like the lyrics.
    And I'm not saying that Kele isn't gay because I don't know, but the song could have been written from another's perspective.
