Gang Of Youths – Poison Drum lyrics
[Verse 1]
And I'm not afraid of the man next door
He's calm and quiet with a heart of stone
He fires a fire away that'll kill us all
And I'm not moving to a halfway house
To work my hands for the temple
How I'd die for pretty things on bigger walls

[Refrain 1]
And try to have it all
And try to have it all

[Verse 2]
And I won't listen to the men on stage
They want my share of the minimum wage
And fear the final things that we could know
And I'm not seeing what the vicar sees
To fall in love with the whole trapeze and
Stow the self away like a poison drum

[Refrain 2]
It's a sign that we'll be gone
It's a sign that we'll be gone

[Chorus]
And when you walk
There's a fire, there's a fire in your bones
And when they talk
There's a liar, there's a liar in their clothes

[Verse 3]
And I'm not afraid of the ghetto lords
And they carved our names on the city walls
But they lack the fire of faith that'll save us all
And I'm not doing what I can't avoid
To sell my soul for the trade and toil of
Fate and final things before the soil

[Refrain 3]
To try to have it all
And to die to have it all

[Chorus]
And when you walk
There's a fire, there's a fire in your bones
And when they talk
There's a liar, there's a liar in their clothes
And when you walk
There's a fire, there's a fire in your bones
And when they talk
There's a liar, there's a liar, there's a liar, there's a liar ,there's a liar, there's a liar, there's a liar, there's a liar in their clothes

[Bridge 1]
There's no reason why we can't be loyal
There's no reason why we can't be loyal
There's no reason why we can't be loyal
There's no reason why we can't be loyal

[Bridge 2]
But I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid
But I'm not afraid
But I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid
But I'm not afraid
But I'm not afraid
But I'm not afraid
But I'm not afraid
But I'm not afraid
But I'm not afraid
But I'm not afraid
But I'm not afraid
But I'm not afraid
But I'm not afraid
No, I'm not
I'm terrified

[Chorus]
And when you walk
There's a fire, there's a fire in your bones
And when you talk
There's a liar, there's a liar in their clothes
Yeah when you walk
There's a fire, there's a fire in your bones
And when they talk
There's a liar, there's a liar in their clothes

[Outro]
I'm not afraid of the man next door
He's calm and quiet with a heart of stone
He fires a fire away that'll kill us all
But I am doing everything I can
For the minds of men that I've never met
Too tired from saving money just to save myself
