Warren of Thieves (feat. Frank Turner)

from Made of Waves by Kurtz



Oh come on, we had a deal
You take the high road while I get high
I wasn't asking for much of it, but still you had to steal
You take the lights and I'll take what's mine

You have the face of middle England
I have the face of a dog
I have the dirty ears of the unwashed
You have the ear of your god
Your saviour's a man of expensive taste
Which always struck me as odd
More at home in your mullioned mansions
Than down here in our mud

Beneath the marble and limestone
We built a warren of thieves
Beneath the sangfroid and cynicism
We whispered things that we mean
Beneath the thread needle three piece suits
We made our clothes out of leaves
Beneath the things that you wanted us to be
We've been the people we've been

Take it, it's yours
We won't act surprised
The world wasn't something we wanted

We found a nation underneath your foundations

Plant a fucking flag
Sanctify the dead
Fill the barrels with (dead) flowers
This one, this one is ours

Build a home for the lost and the forlorn
In the gap between the train and the platform
Leave the lions share for the lions
There are many like it but this one is mine
