The Libertines US – Firetruck lyrics

It used to be easy
Just break the glass
And pull in case of fire
But my parents got wise
And moved me away
That was the last time
I saw her

I can see myself
Pouring the gas
And lighting the ring of fire
Making a spectacle of myself
But my firetruck does not come

Cloud-like smoke
In a box-like room
I watch the fish fry
I wait in the dark
With my rubber boots
I wait for an alarm

I see a firetruck
Filled with men
Head for the station house
She looked at me
With false alarm
No lights or sirens on
