305 Song Lyrics | Armed and Desperate

305

Another day another dollar
Will destroy you buttercup
This city’s beautiful
She’s starving she’s throwing up
This city’s desperate and oh oh
Down, down
Here we go

And if you care like you say that you care
Rush in heroically and hold back her hair
And if you care like I care
You take a higher road and leave her there

Oh I don’t know what’s left to love of this
There’s nothing left but nothing
We should tear it down and rebuild

I know that I can’t accept this as the way things are to be
I’m holding you at arms length baby
To take this wrist and twist you to your knees

Darling I am the salt of the earth
And I resolve to dive into your wounds
This city needs a dictator

Another day another dollar
Will destroy you buttercup
This city’s beautiful
She’s starving she’s throwing up
This city’s desperate and oh oh
Down, down
Here we go

I don’t know what’s left to love of this
There’s nothing left but nothing
We should tear it down and rebuild

I know that I can’t accept this as the way things are to be
I’m holding you at arms length baby
To take this wrist and twist you to your knees

Darling I am the salt of the earth
And I resolve to dive into your wounds
This city needs a dictator
