We'll take it back to the ocean no creatures left here no tears at all

Oh my you dream the dream of a century no flowers pick for no tears at all

We'll raise camps and worship the weak wounded no salt here

We are another light we are another noose for you to let the wicked grasp on to let the wicked pull on

We live to devastate all that we've learn't a precious rose is left to burn save me

Never understood the cold of London's fog a bitter freeze on human love

Love our precious human love our priceless and precious human love

In the centre your eyes are grey if i begged and promised you would you even say

I'm fucking worth it I'm worth the broker's ink and as the sun beats stronger I'll stop and think

Lets have one night one night above all the others where we promise that our souls will wrap together

In a perfect lock we can see the lights drawing nearer beneath that bridge the outside world won't even chance don't burn that rose away don't take a chance

Nothing left to live for only the booze I'm peeling sequins from my tired shoes we're never safe here in broken minds we'll die

Reach for the tuscan sun pleading we're not the only ones to go away on sailing ships to find another love

We're pulling claws from each other just to feel the warmth of the breast we'll crush and devour love

All that is true oh precious feeling I've taken chances on you oh wonderfuck I'm still in love with you

    General CommentGod I love these guys, more people need to comment on this!

    that aside the whole No Tears for The Creatures album lyrically came across as a much more personal reflection of the bands lives than the previous two albums, thats why I love it most of all! We're invited into walking with there souls...

    You can almost smell the frustration and anger! "wonderfuck I'm still in love with you..." I'm pretty sure that this song is about longing for a lost love, and they're very pissed off!
