Erasure – Brother And Sister lyrics

When I was young
I would scream blue murder
'Til I had my own way
Run from the family
And tell of a story to spite my elders
Round and round, the boy
In the garden of lies and science fiction

Brother and sister and father of mine
Keep us together and keep us in line
A lot we depend on a lot we can do
Send love to mother, I'll be good to you

To pollute of the mind of a minor
The only escape from the rigours of life
Pretend we're a family and try to believe
In the virtues of truth
Round and round, caught up
In a tangle of lies and deception


Round and round and round and round and
Round and round and round and round
Round and round and round and round and
Round and round and round and round


Still we're going 'round, the boy in the garden of lies
