John Lydon – Fishing lyrics

Closed mouth catches no flies.
Burning bridges as you're crossing is not very wise.
When analyzed, be tongue-tied.
Play snakes and ladders, but not suicide.
Like casting pearl before swine.
Talking to you is a waste of time.
You burned the bridges you've been crossing.
Go crawl back into your dustbin.
Crawl back in your own dustbin.
From you expect this lack of respect.
To be sly, not one of a kind.
Pretty picture, bad frame of mind.
Like casting pearl before swine.
Talking to you is a waste of time.
You burned the bridges you've been crossing.
Go crawl back into your dustbin. (x4)
I've learned caution.
This comes from wisdom.
These altitudes.
These dizzying heights.
These bottomless pits.
These sweet delights.
Like me, you are unlike me. (x2)
Go crawl back in your dustbin.
Talking to you is a waste of time.
You burned the bridges you've been crossing.
Under surveillance.
Sweet subservience.
I think you're stupid, but you're worth the mention.
People who need people are the stupidest of people.
Go crawl back into your dustbin. (x5)
