Libertines – General Smuts lyrics

Well life is short
We spend all our time
Just fucking fighting my friend
Well a soul can't be bought
Not with a cheap rhyme
And I know that when I die
I'm gonna go down with the general
Up with the general smuts


Well I've been stuck in a hole
And it's dark down here
Every time I've thought I've seen the light
Well it just fades and disappears
Just fades and disappears
Just fades and disappears
Just fades and disappears


I've seen a face in the shadows
And I've said "how do you do?"
And I've been living in this horror show
Which just never ends
I'm gonna go down with the general
Back to the general smuts
I'm going down with the general
Up with the general smuts


Fades and disappears
I've seen a face in the shadows
And I've said "how do you do?"
And I've been living in this horror show
For much too long
I'm going down with the general
Back to the general
Down with the general
Up with the general smuts
