"Chaka Demus" as written by and Jamie Alexander Treays....
Alot of people around here lost the white in their eyes
See the lust inside your heart, so why do you go and touch the sky?

Think with their head argue with their gut
Draft did you leave the door open it might encourage customers in
I wish the barmaid shut
Look like shit, down on my luck
Two world wars and one world cup
Scream by the desperate divided crutch
Used to have an Empire then we grew up
Lost everything who gives a fuck
Money in the jukebox rocks all night
Same shit bands too much hype
Everyone knows, everyone sees fights
Everyone drinks in the corner, right
Everyone knows hes a C blood type
Same rematch to much delight
I love her she loves me to that's why we get together

Alot of people around here lost the white in their eyes
See the lust inside your heart, I don't want to touch the sky

He's dizzy for Lizzy
I'm dizzy generally
Scapegoat hit by a girl befriended me
Not that I care it's the only use to me
She bouncing off walls through doors
Pretend to be everything I wanna be and everything less
[? ]

Your leaving alone but you came together
Who made the sun turn to stormy weather
Leaving alone but you came together
Who made the suns turn to stormy weather

Alot of people around here lost the white in their eyes
See the lust inside your heart, I don't want to touch the sky

She said tonight Jay I'm gunna teach them a ballad
An English man in every coward
I was kinda impressed by the way she dressed
I scoured this land to find a girl empowered
Ask her again why her heart turned sour
One of the ones that the boys devoured
If your gonna learn a song you gotta sing along
There's an English man in every coward
I got money in the jukebox rocks all night
Same shit bands too much hype
Everyone knows, everyone sees fights
Everyone drinks in the corner, right
Everyone knows he's a C blood type
Same rematch to much delight
Well I love her, she lovin' me too that's why we get together

[Repeat x2]
Alot of people around here lost the whites in their eyes
See the lust inside your heart I don't want to touch the sky

    Lyric CorrectionI think the lyrics sound more like this:

    A lot of people around here lost the whites in their eyes.
    I see the lust inside your heart, so won’t you go and touch the sky.

    Think with the head, argue with the gut,
    Draught if you leave the door open
    “It might encourage customers in”
    I wish the barmaid shut
    Look like shit, down on my luck
    Two world wars and one world cup
    Scream by the best divided crutch
    Used to have an empire, then we grew up
    Lost everything, who gives a fuck

    Money in the jukebox rocks all night
    Same shit bands, too much hype
    Everyone knows everyone sees fights
    Everyone drinks in the corner, right?
    Everyone knows there’s a C blood type
    Same we match and matches alike
    I love her, she loves me too, that’s why we get together

    A lot of people around here lost the white in their eyes.
    I see the lust inside your heart, and I don’t wanna touch the sky.

    He’s dizzy for Lizzie, I’m dizzy generally
    Scapegoated by a girl befriending me
    Not that I care, it’s the only use of me
    She bounce of walls through doors she tends to be
    Everything I want to be and everything less
    I stress this guess at the problem we stressed
    ?????? heavy on your lungs, down your spine
    Shit I got pleurisy

    You’re leaving alone but you came together
    You make the sun turn stormy weather
    Leaving alone but you came together
    We made the sun turn to stormy weather

    A lot of people around here lost the white in their eyes.
    I see the lust inside your heart, and I don’t wanna touch the sky.

    She said “Tonight J, I’m gonna teach them a ballad
    An Englishman in every coward”
    I was kind of impressed by the way she dressed
    I’ve scoured this land to find a girl empowered
    Asked her again why her heart turned sour
    One of the ones that the boys devoured
    If you’re gonna learn a song, gotta sing along
    There’s an Englishman in every coward

    Money in the jukebox rocks all night
    Same shit bands, too much hype
    Everyone knows everyone sees fights
    Everyone drinks in the corner, right?
    Everyone knows there’s a C blood type
    Same we match and matches alike
    I love her, she lover me too, that’s why we get together

    A lot of people around here lost the white in their eyes.
    I see the lust inside your heart, and I don’t wanna touch the sky.
    A lot of people around here lost the white in their eyes.
    I see the lust inside your heart, and I don’t wanna touch the sky.

    General CommentI love it, typical jamie!

    I think it's about how we all just follow eachother round and everything's so mundane now.
    the line 'i see the lust inside your heart and i dont wanna touch the sky' and infact the whole chorus is about how we dont do anything about anything. The song is pure genius i love the whole album!

    General CommentI think the line: "He's dizzy for Lizzy, I'm dizzy generally" is an allusion to the Beatles song Dizzy Miss Lizzy

    General CommentI think "lost the white in their eyes" means people smoking weed and getting red, bloodshot eyes. "Touch the sky" also means getting high, like Jimi Hendrix's "kiss the sky" in Purple Haze.
