"Monster Boots" as written by and Johnny Borrell....
If lust and longing were all we knew
And love was kissing on the roofing view
Of the office workers and their camera phones
My heart would pump to let you know
That you could take this song, if it's any good at all

Hide it somewhere when your new love calls
And if he asks if you hear his music playing
Tell him it's the rattling of old bolts and chains
That held your heart in but now you're starting
To forget you ever knew me and you won't let me in

If lust and longing were all we knew
And you were someone special, and I was too
For would you take this song, put it on your wall
Hide it somewhere when your lover calls
If he asks if that's music playing
Tell him that the rattling of old bolts and chains

How it went old so quickly but that was long ago
When you could fall in love with every one you know
And consume the songs like DNA
Cut me open and tell me what they'd say

Pierce my skin with your own elbow
Stake Sebastian can tell you what he knows about that
And how it feels, oh ohh, let me in

She says, break the rules now
Talk like you've got nothing to lose
Don't dance with nobody else
And he's drunk at the wheel again
Ooh, must've be somewhere with a monster smile
It's way too tight

Let me tell you what I know
She's got to leave this alone
Ohh, find a way out of here
She can still make it home

Now we both know longing, how it gets under your skin
But then I saw you making eyes at him
When you can take me over, take it all
Close that distance, smash that door
Beat me up or take my car
One last time before you crawl

But when your lover calls
Under the bed when his bullet falls
If he asks if that's music playing
Tell them that the rattling of old bolts and chains

In the night when you watch it fall
You gotta do now
Is let me in, let me in, let me in

She fixing stubs onto her belly
She walks like she's got nothing to lose
Still she just can't look at no one else

While in the basement there is blood on his knees
Turning to see what she would feel
When everybody has gone home
Let me tell you what I know

We could just leave this alone, ohh
And find a way out of here
He could just make it, her [Incomprehensible] in their tongue
And she's in a basement crime
She can't give this much of a fuck again

So she'll go to another with dodgy heels on
Dance with him to the beat of this song
Teach him up not be this much at his hopes
And then just another number on a generation kill
Dance, dance, too much time to kill

And if I see her, I'll tell her you said, hi

    If lust and longing were all we knew
    And love was kissing on the roof in view
    Of the office workers and their camera phones
    My heart would pump to let you know
    That you could take this song, if it's any good at all

    Hide it somewhere when your new love calls
    And if he asks if he hears music playing
    Tell him it's the rattling of old bolts and chains
    That held your heart in but now you're starting
    To forget you ever knew me and you won't let me in

    If lust and longing were all we knew
    And you were someone special, and I was too
    For would you take this song, put it on your wall
    Hide it somewhere when your lover calls
    If he asks if that's music playing
    Tell him that’s the rattling of old bolts and chains

    How it went old so quickly but that was long ago
    When you could fall in love with every one you know
    And consume the songs like DNA
    Cut me open and tell me what they'd say

    Pierce my skin with your arrow and bow
    Saint Sebastian can tell you what he knows about that
    And how it feels, oh, ohh, let me in

    She says break the rules now
    Talk like you've got nothing to lose
    Don't dance with nobody else
    And he's drunk at the wheel again
    Rumoured to be somewhere with a monster smile that’s way too tight

    Let me tell you what I know
    She's got to leave this alone
    Ohh, find a way out of here
    She can still make it home


    Now we both know longing, how it gets under your skin
    But then I saw you making eyes at him
    When you could take me over, take it all
    Close that distance, smash that door
    Meet me up or take my call
    One last time before you crawl

    Into the back when your lover calls
    Under the bed when his bullet falls
    If he asked if it’s music playing
    Tell them that’s the rattling of old bolts and chains

    In the night when you watch it fall
    All you gotta do now
    Is let me in, let me in, let me in

    She fixes studs onto her ballet shoes
    Walks like she's got nothing to lose
    Still she just can't look at no one else

    While in the basement there is dirt on his knees
    Trembling to see what she’ll reveal
    When everybody has gone home
    Let me tell you what I know

    We could just leave this alone, ohh
    And find a way out of here
    We could just make it,
    Her arrows are flying, they don’t hit their target and
    She's in her basement crying
    She can't give this much of a fuck again

    So she'll go to another with Clergerie heels on
    Dance with him to the beat of this song
    Teach him that the beast must earn his horns
    And me I’m just another number son of generation kill
    These days too much time to kill

    And if I see her I'll tell her you said hi

    General Commentwhy has this got no comments on it? Its my favorite song from the Album.... I think he's talking about an Ex who has moved on and got a new man. Easy to relate to...

    General CommentThis is without doubt the best song on an otherwise mediocre record.
    It's definitely about an ex but it's more complex than just that, cause it seems like she still wants him too or isn't getting over him: "She's in the basement crying, she can't give this much of a fuck again".

    Anyway these lyrics have way too many faults, I'll post better ones after a careful listen one of these days :)
