Bramble 06:51
My friends are wrapped in bramble / he don't know how to gamble / he only knows how to ramble / and so his shit is in shambles / he sinks down to the bottom of the ice pool / where his blackberry face lays to rest / what were the last thoughts that went through the mind of a fool / as the cold drink filled his chest / he said why was I so besotted with the thought of being caught / did it seem rock n' roll it wasn't cool / and if I hadn't had to flaunt it with that shit that I had bought / would I be drowning here in this ice pool You understood your gamble / you read all the preamble / and you made sure to sample / the life you couldn't handle / where was your genius when you knew you should run / but you couldn't bear to leave it behind / why should your wife be sat here drinking all your gin / all I wanna do is rewind / why were you so besotted with the thought of being caught / did it seem rock n roll it wasn't cool / and if you hadn't had to flaunt it with that shit you had bought / would I be sitting here on this bar stool / My job is to untangle / to work all the angles / and then I have to strangle / the guy I'm supposed to handle / he sank down to bottom of the ice pool / where his blackberry face laid to rest / why what the last thoughts that went through the mind of a fool / as the purple seeped from his chest / why was he so besotted with the thought of being caught / did it seem rock n roll it wasn't cool / and if he hadn't had to flaunt it with that shit that he bought / would have have bleed out there in that ice pool / [twiddly guitar]
