"Been Training Dogs" as written by and Kiernan James Mahon Thomas Rhys Bellamy....
Been training dogs again
To bite your little princess
And making sure they make a scene
Running errands all the way
Communicate in codes
You've just gotta make the in-roads

Holding on, to what you've got
Making plans, just to stay alive
Doing time, oh you bet you will
I'm doing mine, by the side of the road
Making out, 'cause I'm making good
What it's all about, like I said I would
Then you realize, well, look who's laughing now

We take pride in our work
The key's the execution
And, hey that's what we had in mind
But we're not just having fun
I wouldn't want to be ya
Cause we're drawing blood if we see ya

And we're not afraid to use animals
Or anything else that'll tear itself a hole
Yeah we'll be just like dumb fucking animals
If that's the kind of game you want to play

    General CommentI'm hearing the chorus fine but some of the verse lyrics are off:

    Been training dogs again
    To BITE YOU little princess
    AND make you surely make a scene
    Running errands all the way
    Communicate in codes
    We just gotta make the INROADS (= a hostile invasion)


    We take pride in our work
    For easy excecution
    And pain THAT'S what we had in mind
    But we're not just having fun
    I wouldn't wanna be ya
    Cos we're drawing blood if we see ya.

    PS it's this kind of snarling malevolence that makes this band great ;)

    General CommentMy absolute favourite lines in that song:

    - "I wouldn't wanna be ya
    Cos we're drawing blood if we see ya."

    (When I hear this, I just wanna grab a fucking spray-can and bomb the streets with these words, haha.)

    - "And we're not afraid to use animals
    Or anything else that'll tear itself a hole
    Yeah we'll be just like dumb fucking animals
    If that's the kind of game you want to play"

    (This line is so fucking brilliant. Metaphorically using digging animals as a reference to digging someone's grave and just bury them. This is by far the best revenge song ever.)

    General CommentI read in an interview with the band that this song is about growing up in their hometown of Reading.
