Cocktail parties for the rich and influential
But walking on my hind legs feels unnatural
Talking to the man with a mouth like an asshole
The girl who fucks like a bucket was coming on like a snowball
They killed some kid last night on the night bus
Dropped him off between Euston and King's Cross

You know I despise violence
You know I can't make any sense of it
All the Jiminey Crickets were moaning in the stairwell
They shit themselves, they promise to faithful
You know I just wanna be famous
You know I just wanna serve a purpose
Follow the spiral staircase down into the station
Who is the source of all this misinformation
Sex and death chase through my brain
Till I wake up and c-c-come again
The train pulls out of the darkness
I dance out of the tunnel
Numbers which at first seemed random are consequential
They come together like the pieces of a puzzle
Synapse after synapse till the growth is exponential

Talk to the man with a mouth like an asshole
Talk to the man with a mouth like an asshole
Talk to the man with a mouth like an asshole
The girl who fucks like a bucket was coming on like a snowball
Ring the bell, Jim
Ring the bell, Jim
Jim, Jim, J-Jiminey, ring the bell
All is well, Jim
All is well, Jim
Jim, Jim, J-Jiminey, ring the bell

And when it's all said and done,
You'll find it's all just barely begun
And when it's all just barely begun,
You'll find it's all said and done

On nights like these
All the kisses and ooh la la
When you're down on your hands and your knees
Don't even know any more who you are
Ooh la la
Ooh ooh la la

I've been up for hours searching for answers
Messages hidden in the back pages of newspapers
They call you cunt, fat, homo, paki, nigger,
This city was built on the dreams of spies and sailors
Eastern Europe is calling for me
I wanna disappear behind the curtain completely
And every empire was founded on slaves
Rule Britannia, Britannia rules the waves
" "
" "
We crossed the ocean on a ship made out of slaves

Now be a good boy Jim
And run up and help Jim
Be sure to roll over and tuck your tail behind your legs and beg Jim
You're my best friend Jim
You are my servant Jim
You are not worth the shit that dribbles from my chin Jim

Talk to the man with a mouth like an asshole
"
"
The scenery seems to tremble like an interrupted signal

Ring the bell Jim
Ring the bell Jim
Jim Jim Jiminy, ring the bell

All is well Jim
All is well Jim
Jim Jim Jiminy, ring the bell
