The Captain

/
Biffy Clyro

 

Angels fall to the floor
Like they would if I was Captain
Silver children, she roared
I’m not the son of God
Somebody help me sing
Can anybody hear me?
Liars and lovers combine tonight
We’re gonna make a scene

Somebody help me sing, whoa
Somebody help me sing, whoa

Help me Captain of our crippled disguises
I won’t show what’s underneath
It’s time for surprises
I can’t climb up your ladder
I cannot ride your horse
I’ve swallowed half an hourglass
So now the landscape is swollen up

I gave birth to a fire
It’s like it’s features were burning
I’m in control
I am the son of God
Somebody help me sing
Can anybody hear me?
Line up your soldiers on final time
We’re gonna have a ball

Somebody help me sing, whoa
Somebody help me sing, whoa

Help me Captain of our crippled disguises
I won’t show what’s underneath
It’s time for surprises
I can’t climb up your ladder
I cannot ride your horse
I’ve swallowed half an hourglass
So now the landscape is swollen up

Let’s lock death away…

That Golden Rule

/
Biffy Clyro

 

Son of Henry, I’m the first in line
To the throne, smell my mustard gas
I slash swords through your wooden spine
Well it cut my heart and it blew my head
We made love at the side of the road
Reflex, you better know this flows fast
This river is particularly sinister
Close your eyes and take my hand

I wanna scream one last death medley
I am looking for a reason to secure a forward motion

[Chorus]
Love that golden rule, that golden rule
Need that golden rule, that golden rule
Secrets are the truth, they are the truth
We need that silver rule, that silver rule

Face to face with the ball and chain
I’ll poke my head up till its red
I tell my secrets and you took my pain
About a broken heart and I will do it again
Son of Henry, I’m the first in line
To the throne, smell my mustard gas
I slash swords through your wooden spine
Well it cut my heart and it blew my head

I want to scream one last death medley
I am looking for a reason to secure a forward motion

[Chorus]
Love that golden rule, that golden rule
Need that golden rule, that golden rule
Secrets are the truth, they are the truth
We need that silver rule, that silver rule

Bubbles

/
Biffy Clyro

 

Well how’s your view of thing today
Got up young to fade away
The sinners sin but aren’t aware
Our fables take us everywhere
I can’t keep up with you
I can’t keep up

I can’t compete with history
We’ll film it live but dub our tale
The mystery must stay inside
Look at our homes, look at our lives
In control of the morning
In control of the sea

You are creating all the bubbles at night
I’m chasing round trying to pop them all the time
We don’t need to trust a single word they say
You are creating all the bubbles at play

There’s a girl, there’s a girl
There’s a girl, there’s a girl
And she’s down by the river
In her own creepy world
There’s a girl, there’s a girl
And she’s down by the river
It’s time to consider
That baby is a sinner
She’ll wash away your sins
And go home

I only once upset my kin
Accused him of a moral slip
He came back and claimed a change
I know his life’s the same again
I can’t ask him again
I should let it go

You are creating all the bubbles at night
I’m chasing round trying to pop them all the time
We don’t need to trust a single word they say
You are creating all the bubbles at play

There’s a girl, there’s a girl
There’s a girl, there’s a girl
And she’s down by the river
In her own creepy world
There’s a girl, there’s a girl
And she’s down by the river
It’s time to consider
That baby is a sinner

There’s a girl, there’s a girl
There’s a girl, there’s a girl
(She’ll wash away your sins)
She’s face down in the river
(She’ll wash away your sins and go home)

God and Satan

/
Biffy Clyro

 

I talk to god as much
As I talk to satan
‘Cause I wanna hear both sides
Does that make me cynical,
There are no miracles and
This is no miraculous life
I savour hate as much as I crave love
Because I’m just a twisted guy
Is this the pinnacle, Is this the pinnacle
The pinnacle of being alive?
Now I see the light

Well I look up to god
But I see trouble
‘Cause this ain’t a miracle
I just want to take my chance
To live through a miracle

I know for certain that someone
Is watching but is it from up or down?
I make you miserable you stick with me
Although you know I’m gonna
Ruin your life
We walk into the tide

Well I look up to god
But I see trouble
‘Cause this ain’t a miracle
I just want to take my chance
To live through a miracle

When the see-saw snaps and splinters your hand
Don’t come crying to me
I’ll only see your good side
And believe it’s a miracle, a miracle

I slap the water and watch the fish dance
To the ripples of us
We’re just dull blue duds
Blinking eyes encased in rust
This ain’t a miracle
This ain’t a miracle
This ain’t a miracle
This ain’t a miracle
Ooohhh

 

Born on a Horse

/
Biffy Clyro

 

I pronounce it aluminium,
‘Cause there’s an I next to the U and M
Now write it down slowly and read it out fast
She’s got eyes, preposterous eyes
I’ve never had a lover who’s my sister or my brother before

I’ve been counting on the wrong things
To make life feel alright
You could be my acid queen
Until the end of time
‘Cause you can have it all
You’re stuck in the middle
Raise them one and all
I was born on a horse thats all

I like to think I’m just a thouroughbred
In all but name and with no horses flesh
We’re galloping slowly through this broken glass
She’s got hooves, preposterous hooves
I’ve never had a lover who’s my sister or my brother before

I’ve been counting on the wrong things
To make life feel alright
You could be my acid queen
Until the end of time
‘Cause you can have it all
You’re stuck in the middle
Raise them one and all
I was born on a horse thats all

‘Cause you can have it all
You’re stuck in the middle
Raise them one and all
I was born on a horse thats all

Mountains

/
BIffy Clyro

 

Took a bite out of a mountain range, thought my teeth would break the mountain down
Lets go I want to go, all the way to the horizon
Took a drink out of the ocean and, treading water before I drowned
Lets dive, I want to dive, to the bottom of the ocean
Took a ride, I took a ride, I wouldn’t go there without you
Lets take a ride, we’ll take a ride, I wouldn’t leave here without you

I am the mountain
I am the sea
You can’t take that away from me
I am the mountain
I am the sea
You can’t take that away from me
‘Cause you tear us apart
With all the things you don’t like
You can’t understand, that I won’t leave
‘Til we’re finished here and then you’ll find out
Where it all went wrong

I wrote a note to the jungle and
They wrote me back that I was never crowned
King of the jungle so, there’s a end to my horizon
Took a ride, I took a ride, I wouldn’t go there without you
Lets take a ride, we’ll take a ride, I wouldn’t leave here without you

I am the mountain
I am the sea
You can’t take that away from me
I am the mountain
I am the sea
‘Cause you tear us apart
With all the things you don’t like
You can’t understand, that I won’t leave
‘Til we’re finished here and then you’ll find out
Where it all went wrong

Nothing lasts forever, except you and me.
(You are my mountain, you are my sea)
Love will last forever, between you and me.
(You are my mountain, you are my sea)

I am the mountain
I am the sea
You can’t take that away from me
I am the mountain
I am the sea
I am the mountain
I am the sea

Shock Shock

/
Biffy Clyro

 

Well you scratch and you scratch ’til your face comes away
Replaced by a hole a vortex just waiting to play
I commend you violence

Well I enter a cave with my wrists sticking out
The soles of my feet worn down to a dusty mess
I’ll stay numb to these accidents

Well you talk and you talk like you trying to shock me
I don’t even know what the fuck we’re still arguing about
Maintain my silence

You’re a shame to your dad ’cause you’re killing his days
Irresponsible life you’ve only yourself to blame
Maintain your friendliness

Well you talk and you talk like you trying to shock me
I don’t even know what the fuck we’re still arguing about
Maintain my silence

You’re wondering why you’re exhausted, exhausted from using these lies
I’m sure you’ll regress again
Maintain your silence

I’ve been crippled by shock, shocked again
I’ll continue to douse your violence
With kisses of hate and silence
I’ve been crippled by shock (shock, shock, shock, shock, shock)

Many Of Horror

/
Biffy Clyro

 

You say « I love you, boy »
I know you lie
I trust you all the same
I don’t know why

‘Cause when my back is turned
My bruises shine
Our broken fairytale
So hard to hide

I still believe it’s you and me ’til the end of time

When we collide we come together
If we don’t we’ll always be apart
I’ll take a bruise; I know you’re worth it
When you hit me hit me hard

Sitting in a wishing hole
Hoping it stays dry
Feet cast in solid stone
I’ve got Gilligan’s eyes

I still believe it’s you and me ’til the end of time

When we collide we come together
If we don’t we’ll always be apart
I’ll take a bruise; I know you’re worth it
When you hit me hit me hard

You said love was letting us go against what
Our future is for…

Many of horror
Our future’s for many of horror

I still believe it’s you and me ’til the end of time

When we collide we come together
If we don’t we’ll always be apart
I’ll take a bruise; I know you’re worth it
When you hit me hit me hard

Booooom, Blast And Ruin

/
Biffy Clyro

 

I’ve had enough
You burn the bridge I’ll cut the boat in half
Control
I’ve said enough, you keep the secrets I know you’ll never spill
Sold

Boom, blast and ruin girl
Causes distraction
You’re rooted in hell

I can’t surprise you girl
The truth is in motion
You cover it well
But you’re praying for some action so you won’t realise
You used to be wrong, I used to be right

I flick the switch
I wake up in a copse of sweat and tears
Soaked
I swallow truths
We fit like ice cream on an open wound
It soothes

Sink like cathedrals girl
Into the ocean
We rise to the sun

I can’t surprise you girl
The truth is in motion
You cover it well
But you’re praying for some action so you won’t realise
You used to be wrong, I used to be right

Boom, blast and ruin girl
Causes distraction
You’re rooted in hell

I can’t surprise you girl
The truth is in motion
You cover it well
But you’re praying for some action so you won’t realise
You used to be wrong, I used to be right

Cloud Of Stink

Dance if you wanna dance, if you wanna sweat
Sweat if you wanna smell, go do it alone
Fuck if you wanna fuck, if you wanna cum
Sleep if you wanna sleep, talk more in the morn’

Look up to the sky, is it still good to feel alive?
Well I can dance on top of a hurricane

This combination will make it’s way round
Congratulations on marrying this clown

Swing if you wanna swing, hanging on a rope
Burn if you wanna bur, do it on your own
Cry if you wanna cry, acknowledge your heart
Wish if you wanna wish, the only way is up

Blame it on the world, visit them one and all
You have to comprehend what your heart says

This combination will make it’s way round
Congratulations on marrying this clown

There’s a black mould on my frazzled lungs, it whistles
My throat is gone, I’m still holding on but I don’t have long
No I don’t have long

‘Cause it goes on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on
It whistles (Let go)

‘Cause it goes on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on
It whistles (Let go)

Dance if you wanna dance, if you wanna sweat
Sweat if you wanna smell, go do it alone
Fuck if you wanna fuck, if you wanna cum
Sleep if you wanna sleep, talk more in the morn’

Know Your Quarry

/
Biffy Clyro

 

When I was young, I first encountered my crippled lungs;
I felt them burn, and cursed them ever since.
I was turning blue, in a match right in front of you,
and i slithered to the floor, hope I score some more.

I won’t go where the sun doesn’t shine
Go crazy in the evening if we sail up right(?).
Love is a shadow, in the brightness it dies;

because tonight,
we raise the sun, and we shine it over everyone.
And if we won a crash oh hush(?),
our lips should kiss each other so;
i just want to feel your body,
i want you to know your quarry.

you can see the world looking down from a different universe,
can we save every single one of them, the only half I’ve hands(?)
my father cradled us; we’re bright blue and we’re covered in blood,
we staggered through the door, trouble’s taken score.

I won’t go where the sun doesn’t shine
go crazy in the evening if we sail up right(?).
Love is a shadow, in the brightness it dies;

because tonight,
we raise the sun, and we shine it over everyone.
And if we won a crash oh hush(?),
our lips should kiss each other so;
I just want to feel your body,
I want you to know your quarry.

I just want to, feel your body; I want you to, know your quarry.
I just want to, feel your body; I want you to, know your quarry.

Whorses

/
Biffy Clyro

 

Who’s the hippy now?
I cut it off to make you proud,
abuse my limbs until the sun goes down
I don’t want to be alone again.
Got Jesus’ Autograph,
no handshake or pat on the ass
his saving grace was talking fast
I don’t want to be bored again
am I ready to take that chance,
put my faith in someone else?

Let’s use this dynamite,
we’re only making noises

I’ll make the brightness yours
so we can deny who we are,
I Love you but not today
the darkness fell like a shout.
am i ready to take that chance,
put my faith in someone else?

Together we stand,
we’re at the bottom of the cove
it looked like rain but, it felt like snow
Because wherever we stand, we’re at the bottom of the hole,
we’ll dig our way out, but we’ll still say no.

The wound is king and how,
his whorses turn they make him proud
his vision’s clipped like wings and crowns
lets use this photograph
he’s never had the chance to believe in something else.

let’s use this dynamite, we’re only making noises
we want to affect a change with voice and electrical noises

Together we stand,
we’re at the bottom of the cove
it looked like rain but, it felt like snow
Because wherever we stand, we’re at the bottom of the hole,
we’ll dig our way out, but we’ll still say no

Darkness fell like a shout;
the darkness fell like a shout;
darkness fell like the shout;

we want to affect a change, with voice and electrical noises

wherever we crash, we’re gonna blame it on the old
unique to the touch, and crippled to the bone
however we stand they’ll be swinging from the ropes
unfinished and young or unhappy and old
