Won't be the same

You're a piece of shit

You need the enemy, you need someone to crush
Somebody, weakling like you, cos you're not strong enough
Fuck democracy, do as I say, your ideas get in the way
You're nothing but a scrawny little piece of shit, you're gonna die anyway

You're on your own now
Wanna go home now now
Wanna go home now

But I'm just animal bones
But I'm just animal bones
But I'm just animal bones
But I'm just animal bones

Yeah

You need the enemy, you need someone to crush
Some fucker, weakling like you, cos you're not strong enough
Fuck democracy, do as I say, your ideas get in the way
You're nothing but a scrawny little piece of shit, you're gonna die anyway

You're on your own now
Just wanna go home now
Wanna go home now

But I'm just animal bones
I'm just animal bones
I'm just animal bones
I'm just animal bones

Son of a bitch

You're a piece of shit
You're a piece of shit
(Body bag, full of bones, put it down) you're a piece of shit
(Body bag, full of bones, put it down) you're just a piece of shit

    General CommentA few corrections needed here. The first line is 'You're a piece of shit', the reason it sounds like 'Won't be the same' is that it was taken from a demo tape which speeded up when they tried to copy it (if that makes sense).
    Rather than 'weakling like you, 'cos you're not strong enough', it's 'weaker than you to make you feel strong enough'.
    The chorus is 'You'll die alone, lonely and cold, honey I'm home' rather than what is posted.
    And finally, instead of 'put it down', it's 'You will die alone'. Still, it's kinda difficult to decipher some of the lyrics for their early songs.

    Oh, the meaning? I'm pretty sure it's about the fact that in war, the people who make the most important decisions, and thus make the most risks and are applauded as heroes, are the ones who are safest and the least at risk. But I could be wrong.

    General CommentOne of their early songs, which is very underrated in my opinion. Maybe it's because hardly nobody knows this song.

    General CommentI love the lines "Fuck democracy, do as I say, your ideas get in the way", they really remind me of sarcastic anarcho-punk bands (DKs et al). I think this song definitively has that sort of feel musically as well, being a lot more brutally simple than some of the others on Babyteeth like Loser Cop and Innocent X.

    As for a meaning I think infotainment_lad pretty much has it spot on.
