The Fallen Lyrics

by Franz Ferdinand

So they say, you're a troubled boy
Just because you like to destroy
All the things that bring the idiots joy
Well, what's wrong with a little destruction

And the Kunst won't talk to you
Because you kissed, St. Rollox Adieu
Because you robbed a supermarket or two
Well, who gives a damn about the profits of Tesco

Did I see you in a Limousine
Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
Turn the rich into wine an' you walk on the mean
Well, the fallen are the virtuous among us
Walk among us, never judge us, yeah we're all

Up now and get 'em, boy, up now and get 'em, boy
Drink to the devil, death to the doctors

Did I see you in a Limousine
Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
Well, five thousand users fed today
Oh, as you feed us won't you lead us, to be blessed

So we stole and drank champagne
On the seventh seal you said, you'll never feel pain
An' I never feel pain, won't you hit me again
I need a bit of black and blue, to be a rotation

In my blood I felt the bubbles burst
There was a flash of fist, an eyebrow burst
You've a lazy laugh and a red white shirt
I fall to the floor, fainting at the sight of blood

Did I see you in a limousine
Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
You turn the rich into wine, walk on the mean
Be they modeling a virgin, you've already been
You've already been, already seen
That the fallen are the virtuous among us
Walk among us, never judge us, to be blessed

La, la, la

So, I'm sorry, if I ever resisted
I never had a doubt, you ever existed
I only have a problem when people insist on
Taking their hate and placing it on your name

So they say, you're a troubled boy
Just because you like to destroy
You are the word, the word is 'Destroy'
I break this bottle, think of you fondly

Did I see you in a limousine
Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
To the whore in a hostel or the scum of a scheme
Turn the rich into wine, walk on the mean
It's not a jag in the arm, it's a nail in the beam

On the barren earth you scatter your seed
Be they modeling a virgin, you've already been
You've already been an' we've already seen
That the fallen

You've already been an' we've already seen
That the fallen are the virtuous among us
Walk among us, if you judge us, we're all damned
