VICTORY KIDS

VICTORY KIDS

(J. Elliott/E. Gryner)

He sees the city burn
Melted-down illegal turns
Biker vigils and blackened boys
He’s still making a bit of noise for

Victory kids and their weekend wars
Madness comin through the floor
It’s trickery he’s seen it all before
Train wrecks nobody can ignore
He lets them go
The legend lying low

Club lights up everyone!
Let’s get this freak reunion done
Then paint our eyes dark for McQueen
When it gets hard to be human beings

Oh those Victory kids and their weekend wars
There’s life in them yet but oh what for
It’s trickery he’s seen it at the door
Train wrecks on the Dance Cave floor
He lets them go
the legend lying low
He’s already gone for gold
The legend lying low

Where did the future go?
Everyone wants an android soul

Here comes the end of joy
He’s still making a bit of noise for…

BOY [work in progress]

You're so far away / And sometimes afraid / All the knives they throw / In you I see gold / There in your eyes / So what they'll wait a while / You're spinning for miles and miles / Boy don't despair / The world waits out there / From the moment you came it's always been out of order / Dn't break what can't bend / Do what you can boy.

SWEET NOTHING

Look at me I got a bullet in my heart
And in your hand is where the other five are


What do you think I’d do
Drive to the well to wish for you
Oh no
‘Cause you gave me sweet nothing


Hey surprise I’ve healed after all this time
No more pretending and praying for affection’s sign


What do you think I’d do
Cry to myself cause it never came true
Oh no
You gave me sweet nothing
You gave me sweet nothing
You gave me sweet nothing


How can I feel something
When you took my time
I wasted all my energy on you
I don’t think about you
Like my heart once told me to
Cause nothing’s all you gave me as I recall


[solo]


What do you think I’d do
Drive to the well to wish for you
What do you think I’d do
Cry to myself cause it never came true


Oh no
‘Cause you gave me sweet nothing
You gave me sweet nothing
You gave me sweet nothing…
