"Long Way Down" as written by Francis Healy and Douglas Payne....
It's a long way down
Above the two tone town
And it's no funny when you're stuck in the middle
I'm coming up for air
I could be anywhere
It makes no difference when you live in a puddle

Now that I see it
How can I breath when my heart's in my mouth
And not on my sleeve
Better run little rabbit
Back to your hole in the ground
It's a long way down
It's a long way down

The people look so small
Sliding off the wall
Getting dizzy as they fall in the gutter
I watch the seagull
Swooping past the steeple
Crying for his dinner as he shits on the sinners

Now that I see it
How can I breathe when my heart's in my mouth
Instead of my sleeve
Better run little rabbit
Back to your hole in the ground
It's a long way down
It's a long way down

Mama
An eye for an eye
You'd say you'd never take a side
Papa
I'm too young to die
They'll never take me
They'll never take me alive
They're never taking me alive
They're never taking me alive
