The futureheads - Idle hands

Lend me your ears
Let me tell you a lie
The needs must
When the devil drives
You have had a lot to say
Today
I don't mind
I'll take it all away

Give him his due
Don't speak ill of the dead
Or he will appear
And rush in
Where angels fear to tread

You have had a lot to say
Today
I don't mind
I'll take it all away

All of the things
You thought you knew
All of this time
Were never true
Oh, what can you do?

You
You can't control
How far you've come
And what you know


Oh, I can't see any way out
We're falling apart
It seems broken
Trashing about

The devil may care
But I don't
What does that say?
Our idle hands can't hold on anyway

You have had a lot to say
Today
I don't mind
I'll take it all away

You
You can't control
How far you've come
Or what you know
No, no, no
You can't control
The answer to a question you don't know

All of the things you thought you knew
All of this time
Were never true
All of the times
You never asked
Why
You just lived your life
It came true
Then grew to be something new
Something terrible
Festering
Cover your eyes in shame
Nothing but lies
You're not listening
Lies
You're not listening
Lies
You're not listening
