Lyrics

Murder Mile

Words drip off the page
Their bloody splatter drives me insane,
The only person dyin' here is me
As words drip off the page.

Bastards serenade me 
with their shouting and cursin',
Kicking bottles on a noisy street
And It's my ears they're hurtin'.

Livin' on the Murder Mile 
Tryin' to write
Tryin' to raise a smile,
First drafts scrunched up
Lie in a pile,
Cos I'm livin' on the Murder Mile.

The girls next door taunt me
With all the love they're makin',
I imagine the contortions needed
For these walls to be shakin'.

Livin' on the Murder Mile 
Tryin' to write
Tryin' to raise a smile,
First drafts scrunched up
Lie in a pile,
Cos I'm livin' on the Murder Mile.

Editors harass me
'til I'm far beyond breakin',
Deadlines loom like days of execution
It's my head that's left achin'.

Livin' on the Murder Mile 
Tryin' to write
Tryin' to raise a smile,
First drafts scrunched up
Lie in a pile,
Cos I'm livin' on the Murder Mile.

Sirens interrupt me
Just as I am reloadin',
Those bastards squeal like little girls
Their booted feet are runnin'.

Words drip off the page
Their bloody splatter drives me insane,
The only person dyin' here is me
As words drip off the page.
