Bite Hard Lyrics

by Franz Ferdinand

You don't know I sing these songs about you
You don't know the pseudonyms I assume
You don't know the pseudonyms I assume for you

Are you happier now that the gods are dying
Or do you dream of Heston with omniscient fear?
You should be happier now with no one to pray to
Or would I love to break your knees from beggin' and prayin'

Bite hard, well, it's a broken smile
Breaking their hearts and breaking their minds
Bite hard, well, it's a 505
Your engine's alive, we ride together
Bite hard, bite hard

I may be lonelier now but I'm happy alone, honest
I ain't lonely alone but what would we talk about anyway?
No, I'd never resort to kissing your photo, honest
I just had to see how the chemicals taste now, honey

Bite hard, well, it's a broken smile
Breaking their hearts and breaking their minds
Bite hard, well, it's a 505
Your engine's alive, we ride together
We ride together, we die together
Bite hard, bite hard, oh, bite hard

Oh, I never, I never, I never, no, I never
I just had to, I just had to
I just had to see my honey

Bite hard, well, it's a broken smile
Breaking their hearts and breaking their minds
Bite hard, well, it's a 505
Your engine's alive, we ride together
We ride together, we die together
