Elbow – Leaders Of The Free World lyrics

I'm sick of working for a living
I'm just ticking off the days 'til I die
I miss you Louise
And the sickest little pleasures keep me going in between pulling teeth

Periscope up
I've been looking for a ladder
I need to see the commander in chief
And remind him what was passed on to me

Your mum don't sleep!
The friends you keep!
I didn't raise a thief!

But the leaders of the free world
Are just little boys throwing stones
And it's easy to ignore 'til they're knocking on the door of your homes

My thinking isn't driven
But the music always gives me a lift
I'm so easy to please
But I think we dropped the baton like the 60's didn't happen. Oh no.

Periscope up
I've been looking for a ladder
I need to see the commander in chief
And remind him what was passed on to me

Your mum don't sleep!
The friends you keep!
I didn't raise a thief!

Passing the gun from father to feckless son
We're climbing a landslide where only the good die young
