Arctic Monkeys - Nettles Lyrics

Sank into their calculations and snorted on a stench
A bare arithmetic
Look for the boy who was hanging his head low
More trophies and ideas
To follow their pretend

With a scowl in his pocket and a smile on his face
He followed with obedience and fell in the nettles

I flew in some spiky whispers and he bought his own rope
And skipped against the rode
Did start not to find the dark lead and catch that man i hope
Devices man are closed
He lost all his foot holes

And with a scowl in his pocket and a smile on his face
He followed with obedience and fell in the nettles,
Fell in the nettles,
Fell in the nettles

He was a toothpick and the garlic and the cinder upon the path
Failed to blunt or hinder, a slow collapse
And clinging to the door frame he was trapped
After a reminder of where he had been

With a smile in his pocket and a scowl on his face
There was nowhere to flee
Just had to tent in the nettles

    Fucking underrated, this would've fit pretty well on Humbug imo

    This song makes me think of The Fall. Almost if Alex is playing a character base on Mark E. Smith.

    Haha, it's pretty much different, this song is mostly in 5/4 metric, and 3 diatonicly descending notes can be found in a lot of songs ^^'
