The snow on the screen we're going light speed tonight
Like Bonnie & Clyde except we don't die tonight
And the blister packs coats and crumpled up notes appear
It's a break from the swill, the piss they distill around here
A break from the swill, the piss they distill around here

Lift off of this Metropolis
When this town comes down,
I wish I wish
My first degree emergency
Is kettled by your cavalry
I wish I wish

The cash machine queens when ambulance teams arrive
In their skeletal jeans they take Refugees for wives
When their collars get felt their glorified belts won't keep 'em warm
And we'll run up the strand, your wrist in my hand
We know we're born
Yeah I know I'm born
Yeah I know I'm born

Lift off of this Metropolis
When this town comes down
I wish I wish
My first degree emergency
Is kettled by your cavalry
I wish I wish

And when all of your friends are my enemies
Wishing me gone as I'm running away
And my only defence is the worst of me
Out in the open for all to survey
When you settle for less than I promised you
Knowing that all of our barrels are scraped
If it seems like it's harder to say to you
It's 'cause some things are just harder to say

Lift off of this Metropolis
When this town comes down
I wish I wish
My first degree emergency
Is kettled by your cavalry
I wish I wish
