Suzi Wu – Speed lyrics

[Verse 1]
The devil
The devil
The devil
The devil gave me everything
Now I have nothing left
He listens to my stories and he picks out which ones best
And when I start to panic he plucks it from my chest
I’d say it’s quite mechanic
He’d say it’s what sells best
And then it’s to my bedroom
Hanging words and mind
Ugly little couplets
Take up little time

[Bridge]
But there’s no stopping growing
There’s no space to bleed
Like sunflowers on speed
I got someone to be

[Chorus]
Faster than a choir boy’s voice
Breaking into deadly choices
Running with the right-wrong boys
World is turning redrum-coitus
Faster than a winter’s night
Breaking into bleak mid-summer
There’s no stopping growing now
Faster than a garage drummer

[Verse 3]
Elephant and Castle
Sunny, full of lust
Smoke it to the ashes
And play among the dust
And if we’re doing good
They’ll tell us that we’re greedy
And if we’re bad well then we’re needing feeding

[Bridge]
But there’s no stopping growing
There’s no space to bleed
Like sunflowers on speed
I got someone to be

[Chorus]
Faster than a choir boy’s voice
Breaking into deadly choices
Running with the right-wrong boys
World is turning redrum-coitus
Faster than a winter’s night
Breaking into bleak mid-summer
There’s no stopping growing now
Faster than a garage drummer

[Verse 4]
I’ve often met the barman
I think that he’s convinced
That I’m the second coming
Of everything he’s missed
He’s so eager to tell me
I’ve got to tell him straight
I’m choking on my drinking
I leave a bitter taste

[Verse 5]
I might be a soldier
I might go back to school
I might fall out of love
And lose my mind to rules
But I’ll tell you when I’m older
And I’m wearing my true face
How I miss those sunny days
Scrambling for a place
