Declan McKenna – British Bombs Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
Great snakes, are we moving already?
Good gravy, did you say it cost a penny or two for you?
We’re talking ’bout the bad starts
My baby brother has already got a gas mask
‘Cause it’s a good old-fashioned landslide
Killing with your hands tied
In the homemade rope, set sail
Babe, we read it in The Mail, no hope now

[Chorus]
Great way to fool me again, hun
Great acting, it’s good what you tell ’em
Great Britain won’t stand for felons
Great British bombs in the Yemen

[Verse 2]
Why does it seem a fever dream for all?
The call you made to me
You said I’ll feel one day each year, a worry
We shall remember the dead
And we’ll remember the dead so they know that we’re sorry
But then carry on

[Chorus]
Great way to fool me again, hun
Great acting, it’s great what you tell ’em
Great Britain won’t stand for felons
Great British bombs in the Yemen
Great way to fool me again, hun
Great acting, it’s great what you tell ’em
Great Britain won’t stand for felons
Great British bombs in the Yemen

[Verse 3]
How could it be the money?
It’s the vote that matters to me
You say you’re hungry, but you won’t eat the caraway seed
Doesn’t matter in the wreckage, what should you say?
“Well, I found myself a little peckish last Tuesday”
This is what you signed up for, no questions
Reckon we could offer peace, damn the weapons conventions
Well, it’s on the table, but it’s no good, can’t you hear
All our worries for fear, carry on

[Chorus]
Great way to fool me again, hun
Great acting, it’s great what you tell ’em
Great Britain won’t stand for felons
Great British bombs in the Yemen
Great way to fool me again, hun
Great acting, it’s great what you tell ’em
Great Britain won’t stand for felons
Great British bombs in the Yemen

[Bridge]
It’s a good old-fashioned landslide
Killing with your hands tied
In the homemade rope, set sail
Babe, we read it in The Mail, no hope now
And it’s a total fucking whitewash
The people that we might squash
And move from home soil, set sail
For wherever the fuck got oil this time
And if it’s not a fucking war crime
It’s a total waste of your time
And getting so much worse
Get real, kid, your country’s been at war since birth now
And if it’s not a fucking outrage, what’s it all about then?
Now, it’s one on one
Great Britain’s gonna tell you where it all went wrong and then carry on

[Chorus]
Great way to fool me again, hun
Great acting, it’s great what you tell ’em
Great Britain won’t stand for felons
Great British bombs in the Yemen (Great, great way to fool me again, hun)
Great way to fool me again, hun (Great, acting, it’s great what you tell ’em)
Great acting, it’s great what you tell ’em
Great Britain won’t stand for felons
Great British bombs in the Yemen

Devlin – Just Wanna Be Me (The Devil In Album)

[Hook]
I just wanna be me
I just wanna be me
Til the day that I’m free
You do you, I’ll do me

[Verse 1]
I look back now and I can’t explain it
Always knew that i was waiting for greatness
Mum wanted me to work in the slave shift
But I was writing my lyrics in the grave shift
Perfecting the style so amazing I rose through the ranks so quick I was blazing
Sorry to upset you mother but right now I’ve gotta do me. Time’s wasting
I had a scheme and a dream. Time that I prove I could stand on my feet
Jab or weave here in the city full of feats and fiends
Life don’t stop, time don’t sleep
I feel like I’m lost
My ears are on fire, they speak
And they all think they know what’s best but…

[Hook]
I just wanna be me
I just wanna be me
Til the day that I’m free
You do you and I’ll do me

[Verse 2]
They laugh at your vision, make a lasting decision
To let your heart be driven
Like the Batmobile with the Stig in
Keep shit real in the field no fibbin’
Real we can feel cause that’s how we’re living
We’re all different here in Great Britain
So embrace yourself and envision that your skin never left you imprisoned
Be whatever you wanna be man, kill ’em
You’re unlike any other, aim for the sky my brother
Do it your way, this life is a bitch but love her
In the doorway I see the ghost of a soul that I knew last summer
Love to your girl and your kids and your mother
We can’t hold joy without stifer

[Hook]
I just wanna be me
I just wanna be me
Til the day that I’m free
You do you and I’ll do me

[Verse 3]
They’re like Devs do a grime track, I’m like why, would you like that?
Would you lend me your score if things got raw like before on the floor no money up in my bank
I didn’t think so mate so let me do me in this life while I wait to right my mistakes
Wipe these slates everyday is a new blind date
I’m unsure of what I just might face but as long as I’m true to myself what this path might lead to is fate
I’ll follow this road like that Dorothy girl
Even if the bricks ain’t golden and I bet I do it historically well
I ain’t no big shot in your focus just me in this illogical world

[Hook]
I just wanna be me
I just wanna be me
Til the day that I’m free
You do you and I’ll do me
