Bet you somethin'
I can get your mouth shut
Bet you somethin'
I can get your mouth shut

You wanna warnin'

Stab your back

You wanna warnin'

Stab your back

You wanna warnin'

Stab your back

Bet you somethin'
I can get your mouth shut
Bet you something'
I can get your mouth shut

You wanna warnin'
You got a warnin'
Stab your back

Hey, fuck the people
Hey, fuck the people

Last moon a cigarette
Hang myself on a chandelier
Laughin' at another
On a funny thing

Bet you somethin'
I can get your mouth shut
Bet you somethin'
I can get your mouth shut

You wanna warnin'
You got a warnin'
Stab your back

Hey, fuck the people
Hey, fuck the people

Bet you somethin'
I can get your mouth shut
Bet you somethin'
I can get your mouth shut

You wanna warnin'
You got a warnin'
Stab your back

Last moon a cigarette
Hang myself on a chandelier
Laughing at another
On a funny thing

Bet you somethin'
I can get your mouth shut
Bet you somethin'
I can get your mouth shut

You wanna warnin'
You got a warnin'
Stab your back

Hey, fuck the people
Hey, fuck the people
Fuck the people
Fuck the people

    General CommentYup, it's true, this song is dedicated to Miss Florence Rey, as Jamie clearly says that the beginning of this video -
    youtube.com/…

    As for the lyrics, the two incomprehensible lines are ''you want a pony, you got a pony''.
    Also, the chandelier part is actually ''hang my self from a tree'', not chandelier, as it says in every lyrics found on the internet I don't fucking know why.

    General CommentApparently this one is about Florence Rey, French criminal. That might just be a guess though. Great song.

    General CommentI would say its about hate and betrayal ('stab your back')
    And not caring what 'the people' think/do

    General CommentI think this song is about Florence Rey from the point of view of the crime. The crime is saying "fuck the people."

    You wanna warnin'
    You got a warnin'
    Stab your back

    ^I think that means she wanted a warning before she got caught, she got a warning that the cops were after them (the car chase, the sirens), and the "stab your back"/betrayal is about the crime betraying her to the cops instead of allowing her to get away with it.

    "Fuck the people" is the crime saying to her, who gives a fuck about the people? Do whatever you want to do even if other people get hurt, etc.

    Bet you somethin'
    I can get your mouth shut

    ^That part means (in my interpretation) that the crime believes it can get her to keep her mouth shut and not say anything which it does because Florence Rey is well-known for not speaking about the crimes she was involved with.
