[Hook: Florence Welch]
Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way
And all of the ghouls come out to play
And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues strong
It's always darkest before the dawn
All these pretty lights... can't you see 'em?
Endless nights - and my life's museum
Where we see our heroes, and pretend to be 'em
And we seize the day... carpe diem
Previous to this dream state I had leftovers on each plate
Left shoe, all tatted up, from this long journey my feet ache
Left the life that I lived 'cause every day was just replays
And I dreamed big, walked around in my PJs
And my street days is still here
Never changed, like I still wear the pair
Phone call, what for?
We ain't long distance, I'm still there
Still on the blocks with gun cocks and gunshots
I'm up, I'm the leader of a sound of what's hot
$12 showers at the truck stops
Would give anybody motivation that you must not lose this
(Demon days) evil nights - (countin' hours) frequent flights
(God flow) people strife - (hear it once) speak it twice
Hearts never break even, and they change colour like seasons
Backs turn like treason - but somehow you swear you ain't leavin'
Follow me now, follow me now
Spoonfuls of sugar and handfulls of medicine help it go down
Help it go down, help it go down
I was just a fool in a room full of innocents, look at me know
Look at me know, look at me know
Feel my words (look at this sound)
Reminiscing on when I was lookin' out on the city
Wishing a million motherfuckers'd give me that crown
Bitch, I run this town...
All of the people out there with me right now...
Raise your motherfuckin' flags...
See this is the beginning... this is ours...
This is Black Flag...
