One Off Pretender Lyrics

Living on them pills lying in squalor
That's the life of the late night bar crawler
The most outrageous man I met once said
"I could take a belly full of lead and wouldn't wind up dead"
He wants his song to make you shiver
a little like there's a ghost coming your way
Have you ever been told that something's forever
and had your heart broken the very next day

Shout it from the rooftoop
You canshout it from the rooftop
But you can't tell it to the paper, they've already been paid

To be ten different people that's easy, it's easier than being yourself
I'm the one off pretender I'm not happy, picking life off the shelf
He taught me, time wasted, it's time spent well
The a mans dead if he doesn't have a story to tell
Dead if he's lying in a dirty jail cell

Coz when your down they'll kick you
the jury doesn't matter at all
The jury doesn't matter at all
Tell me officer when your baton kissed me
did it make you feel tall?

And no one asked you where you come from
No one told you of these times
And no one asked you where you come from
No one told you of these times

That is your life don't waste it
Why don't you run away?
A man to reckon with he knows how to persuade
Says you won't get a sun tan in this government shade
Does it make you quiver a little, the way they say
"We're gonna fuck you". take a little bit of freedom away every day

You can shout it from the rooftops
You can shout it from the rooftops
You can shout it from the rooftops
But you can't tell it to the paper, they've already been paid.
