The Rakes – Suspicious Eyes lyrics
Oh God I'm running late again
I don't believe this
Another Wednesday morning on the train to work
And my weekend spread into the middle of the week
I'm boozing every night, 3 hours sleep
Check out the people, all stare at my feet
Guy next to me pretends to read the Metro
Sort of bloke who calls everybody bro
But only met a black guy at Uni though
And the lady with the kid watches the guard meet the train
Suspicous Eyes
Looking for the end
Suspicous Eyes
Looking for the end
A young Asian guy with a rucksack on his back
Jumps on to the tube, is he ready to attack?
God just imagine it being all over, trapped in the tube with nowhere to go
All the smoke and confusion, stuck in this dark coffin
The man with the paper, he moves from his seat
Why did that kid stand so close to me?
I'm sick of them moaning that they're being picked on,
But it's them running round with the bombs
I'll grab the kids, leave London's town
Join a white flight to Surrey and beyond
Suspicious Eyes
Looking for the end
Suspicious Eyes
Looking for the end.
These people are assuming who I am, but they're wrong
Got a beard and a bag so they think I got a bomb
I saw everyone's reaction soon as I stepped through the door
All acting like they've never seen a brown person before
The guy infront of me, he should be reading his paper
I'm checking my watch 'cause there's an interview that I'm gonna be late for
Everytime I step on the tube, there's a dude in his suit who ain't got no manners,
Doesn't he know staring is rude?
And if you're so scared, move! I've just stopped caring
I'm off at the next stop mate just keep staring
Suspicious Eyes
Looking for the end
Suspicious Eyes
Looking for the end
Extra chrous (during chorus)
Clocks are ticking and we leave on time (repeat until end)
