Bloc Party – Storm And Stress lyrics

Promise you'll say if it gets
Promise you'll say if it gets too much
Don't be so scared of corners
Don't be so tired of this life

You drink to laugh
You drink to cry
You wear me in
You wear me

You really suffer for it
You really suffer for your art
Don't be a martyr for it
Don't be a martyr for the cause
Your eyes tell it
Your eyes tell the truth

You drink to laugh
You drink to cry
You wear me in
You wear me

You're not always
You're not always right

A new fight for a last rite
A new fight for a last rite
You can fight a new fight
You can fight it's alright

You're the life of the party
You make my world spin around

The first time is the next time
This time is the last time
And this time is the last time
Cos this time I will fight

You're not always right

    Person believes that they can handle their strenuous partying but its taking a toll on their life. They wont admit yet that its getting to be "too much" mainly because they feel they need to prove that they can handle it - hence the suffering for an art and being a martyr. This persons bad habits are cyclical, "this time is the last time," and someone speaks out to tell them to stop - "you're not always right." They confront the person because they see how its stressing them out - this person tired of life and it seems they don't care if they die for or from it.
