Kasabian – West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum [Full Lyrics]

UNDERDOG

Kill me if you dare
Hold my head up everywhere
Keep myself right on this train

I’m the Underdog
Live my life on a lullaby
Keep myself riding on this train
Keep myself riding on this train

Love in technicolour, sprayed out on walls
Well I’ve been pounding at the pavement
‘Til there’s nothing at all
I got my cloak and dagger
In a bar room brawl
See the local loves a fighter
Loves a winner to fall

Feels like I’m lost in a moment
I’m always losing to win
Can’t get away from the moment
Seems like it’s time to begin

Kill me if you dare
Hold my head up everywhere
Keep myself right on this train

I’m the Underdog
Live my life on a lullaby
Keep myself riding on this train
Keep myself riding on this train

It don’t matter
I won’t do what you say
You’ve got the money and the power
I won’t go your way
And I can’t take for the people
They don’t matter at all
And I’ll be waiting in the shadows
‘Til the day that you fall

Feels like I’m lost in a moment
And I’m always losing to win
Can’t get away from the moment
Seems like it’s time to begin

Kill me if you dare,
Hold my head up everywhere
Keep myself right on this train

I’m the Underdog,
Live my life on a lullaby
Keep myself riding on this train

Tell me if you’re down
Throw your weapons to the ground
Keep myself riding on this train

Paper on the wire
Sold your soul for another one
Keep myself riding on this train
Keep myself riding on this train

WHERE DID ALL THE LOVE GO?

Eever took a punch
In the ribcage sonny?
Never met a soul
Who had no shrine
Keep this all in your mind
And get it inside my window
What do we pick up
Trying to kill each other?
You’re faking it son
Gonna get you tonight
I suck another breath
To the hearts of the Revolution
Coz you still ain’t right

Where did all the love go?
I don’t know, I don’t know
[I bet you can’t see it]
Where did all the love go?
I don’t know, I don’t know
[I bet you can’t see it]

Can’t see the signs
Of a real change a commin’
Take another sip
From your hobo’s wine
Get yourself a million miles
From the concrete jungle
This is a time
Full of fear full of anger
A heroe’s exchange for a telephone line
Whatever happened to the
Youth of this generation?
But you still ain’t right

Where did all the love go?
I don’t know, I don’t know
[I bet you can’t see it]
Where did all the love go?
Now I don’t know why
Oh why

The rivers of the pavement
Are flowing now with blood
The children of the future
Are drowning in the flood

Where did all the love go?
Now I don’t know why
I don’t know why

[instrumental]

In this social chaos
There’s violence in the air
Gotta keep your wits about you
Be careful not to stare
Oh-oh-oh-oh

Where did all the love go?
I don’t know, I don’t know
[I bet you can’t see it]
Where did all the love go?
Now I don’t know why
Oh why
[I bet you can’t see it]

SWARFIGA [INSTRUMENTAL]

FAST FUSE

Oh baby I was born
With a fast fuse
I’ve got not time to love
Just a city to abuse

Come get me
Wicked fines won’t arrest me
I’m like Lucifer’s child
Wild, acid done
Black sunglasses shade the morning sun
Come get me
All you fuckers can’t touch me
I’m a hooligan cryer, sire
Sit, don’t scatter
It don’t matter
Gimme 1…2…3…

Gold lightning in the skyline
Gold lightning in the sky

Oh baby I was born
With a fast fuse
I’ve got not time to love
Just a city to abuse

Oh baby I was born
With a fast fuse
I’ve got not time to love
Just a city to abuse

Vultures circle round
They wait above the ground

Oh
How dare you!
Not it’s time to address you
I’m the reason you claim
Shame, stalk my name
See my fist chopping off your reign
It’s getting hotter
Now I’m spitting out lava
Well I’m just putting it into words
Just genuine stock
Hear that bomb going tick tick tock

Gold lightning in the skyline
Gold lightning in the sky
Gold lightning in the skyline
Gold lightning in the sky

Oh baby I was born
With a fast fuse
I’ve got not time to love
Just a city to abuse

In the middle of the night
When they come for you
Where you gonna be?
What you gonna do?

Heaven may come
And heaven may call
But I won’t be there
[Hey hey!]

Heaven may come
And heaven may call
But I won’t be there
[Hey hey!]

Heaven may come
And heaven may call
But I won’t be there
[Hey hey!]

Heaven may come
And heaven may call
But I won’t be there
[Hey hey!]

TAKE AIM

Nightmares, oh nightmares come on now
Getting my days all wrong now
Risen from prison an outlaw
Spending our time in the lion’s jaw
In the end you sink or swim
I’m evil, I’m eager…

Love them oh love them come on now
Socially biting your tongue now
Run down oh run down old houses
Feeding the cats to the mouses

Oh take aim now!
Oh take aim now!
Can you see me in the way now
Oh take aim now!
Oh take aim now!
Gotta get us out of here

Drug them and give them star prizes
Lock them away in high rises
Held up and called on by truncheons
Rattling keys to the dungeons

Oh take aim now!
Oh take aim now!
Can you see me in the way now
Oh take aim now!
Oh take aim now!
Gotta get us out of here

Don’t take me over
I bid you all farewell
I’ve got to leave…
Tears on my shovel
Switch me off today

Oh take aim now!
Oh take aim now!
Can you see me in the way now
Oh take aim now!
Oh take aim now!
Gotta get us out of here

Oh take aim now!
Oh take aim now!
Can you see me in the way now
Oh take aim now!
Oh take aim now!
Gotta get us out of here

Don’t take me over
I bid you all farewell
I’ve got to leave…

THICK AS THIEVES

There we were thick as thieves
Frightened by shadows and the autumn leaves
We wore stolen hats, fitted souls
Aided by lies amongst the media foes

And hey ho
Where did it go?
When did we lose our sight?
And it’s a nice show
The ones we perform
Performing them day and night
Night…

See the lines upon my face
Walking circles with the human race
And all the little people
They want to be free
But I can’t get there
Coz I got you holding me back

And hey ho
Where did it go?
When did we lose our sight?
And it’s a nice show
The ones we perform
Performing them day and night
Night…

Let me be free

La lalala la lalala
la lalala la la la la
La lalala la lalala
la lalala la la la la

Gave you all the high skies
But you gave me night
I gave you all the high skies
But you gave me night, yeah
I gave you all the high skies
But you gave me night
I gave you all the high skies
But you gave me night
Let the lights sing again…

There we were thick as thievess
Frightened by shadows and the autumn leaves

Goodbye my sweet
Goodbye
Goodbye….

WEST RYDER/SILVER BULLET

Mist covers the ground
In the city
Engine rumbles quiet
As we drift by

I wish you could see it
Through my crooked eye
Oh your beauty
Plays me just like a guitar string [it’s so true]

I want your touch
Oh how I want you far too much
She my baby
He’s my baby

Ahhhhh [x 8]

Days drift into one
It’s so pretty
Travelling Wilbury’s, Polly’s photofits
And this stolen car
Is loaded with junk
It’s so dirty
He’ll be the death of me
But that’s ok

I want your touch
Oh how I want you far too much
She my baby
He’s my baby

Ahhhhh [x 8]

VLAD THE IMPALER

Face check I walk this beach
I’m frying in the heat in the cauldron stir me
Chop down my diamond teeth I ain’t got
The simple things in life have been lost
You have got to witness
This is your last retreat
My last repeat

All my friends are as sharp as razors
cut you down if you touch the faders
High class girls hung in elevators
Now we have got the floor

Damn!

Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get looser

Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get looser

You can’t miss me I’m still alive
Snake skin shoe’d I’m pleading homicide
Come on and feel this I’m still alive
Joker meet you on the other side

Banshie I hear you call
We need to raise the dead we need to raise the people!
Cut throat this blood runs thick
It is true
The simple things in life have been lost
You have got to witness
We are the last beatniks
The lost heretics

All my friends are as sharp as razors
cut you down if you touch the faders
Listen up all you masqueraders
Now we have got the floor
Now we have got the floor

Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get looser

Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get looser

Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose [yeah]
Get loose, get loose [yeah]
Get loose, get loose [yeah]
Get loose, get looser

Die!

Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get looser

Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get looser

You can’t miss me I’m still alive
Snake skin shoe’d I’m pleading homicide
Come on and feel this I’m still alive
Joker meet you on the other side

[This is your life]

Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get loose
Get loose, get looser

LADIES & GENTLEMAN [ROLL THE DICE]

I tell you something isn’t right
The way i’m feeling kept me up all night
I fix myself another drink
I guess that’s crazy i need time to think
And all the good ones got away
All the good ones gone to waste

And I take another hit
And do I really get my joy stealing?
All the TV’s hypnotised
All the loonies on the rise
And oh man what I got to tell you

Tonight Ladies and Gentlemen
I roll the dice
Just gimmie that dice
It’s been so hard working for no one
I roll the dice
Just gimmie the dice

Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah

Wakey wakey rise and shine
Put down your souvenirs I think it’s time
We’ve been dead behind the eyes
Switching stations as our country dies

No matter what you do, you know
The world it keeps on turning
We never feel a thing
Come on and meet me at the Carnival

Tonight Ladies and Gentlemen
I roll the dice
Just gimmie that dice
It’s been so hard working for no one
I roll the dice
Just gimmie that dice

Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah

No matter what you do, you know
The world it keeps on turning
We never feel a thing…

SECRET ALPHABETS

This is the end of the tracks
Where the fountains
Climb into your eye
Nobody’s hurting and nobody’s lying
They climb into your eye
Never to die…

They say the man he used to sail on his journey
And laid a trap so much
The pilgrims for their money
He placed his gold all over this world

And in morning as he looked out over Cairo
He makes his process
And his smoked them in a barrum
He could not die
And we never found out why

This is the end of the tracks
Where the fountains
climb into your eye
Nobody’s hurting and nobody’s lying
They climb into your eye
Never to…

This is the end of the tracks
Where the fountains
Climb into your eye
Nobody’s hurting and nobody’s crying
They climb into your eye
Never to die…

No one’s getting older
Everybody’s feeling young
Journey’s almost over now
There’s hope for everyone

This is the end of the tracks
Where the fountains close
[This is the end of time]
This is the end of the tracks
Where the fountains close
[This is the end of our life]

FIRE

Shake me into the night
And I’m an easy lover
Take me into the fight
And I’m uneasy brother
And I’m on fire

Burn my sweet effigy
I’m a road runner
Spill my guts on a wheel
I wanna taste uh-huh
And I’m on fire
And I’m on fire

And I’m on fire
I’m on fire
Whoo Whoo
Whoo Whoo

Wire me up to machines
I’ll be your prisoner
Find it hard to believe
You are my murderer
I’m on fire behind you
Heads a fallen sky

I’m on fire
I’m on fire
Whoo Whoo
Whoo Whoo

I’m on fire
I’m on fire
Whoo Whoo
Whoo Whoo

HAPPINESS

I will follow you now
Wherever you go
I’ll be with you now
Stick around forever
And I never wanna see those tears again
No no
When will you realise
That I ain’t that tough

Save what you got
Keep it safe
Don’t ever stop
There’s nothing more
It’s nothing less
It’s all we got
It’s happiness
It’s happiness…

Ain’t that right
Ain’t that right

And I will have a thousand dreams
Of how I care for you
Through these careless dreams
Look into the future
And I never wanna see those tears again
No no
When will you realise
That you make me breath out

Save what you got
Keep it safe
Don’t never stop
It’s nothing more
It’s nothing less
It’sall we got
It’s happiness
Happiness
Oh it’s always been you
It’s always been you

And I know you got to make it right
Handing out my feelings
On these groups are too loud

Oh and it don’t matter
Yeah I pay my dues
And you know there’s one thing
That keeps us together
It’s gonna keep us together
Now now now now

Save what you got
Keep it safe
Don’t ever stop
It’s nothing more
It’s nothing less
It’s all I got
It’s happiness

Happiness!
