Editors - Bricks And Mortar Lyrics




No one understands,
The way you found your god,
There's a bullet in your hand.

I give a dog a bone,
He'll eat for the day,
But teach him how to kill then.

I am the coast defence,
I am the city wall,
Stealing pounds and pence from you all.

Still no one understands,
The way you found your god,
There's a bullet in your hand.

Pour salt water on the wound,
Pour salt water on the wound,
This home is more than bricks and mortar,
Pour salt water on the wound.

Ahhhhhhhhhh!

When the boy's older,
He'll have the arms of a soldier,
Those arms will never hold her again.
It's just like I told you,
When the boy's older,
He's gonna be a soldier for them.

Pour salt water on the wound,
Pour salt water on the wound,
This home is more than bricks and mortar,
Pour salt water on the wound.

I hope life is good for you,
I hope life is good for you,
I hope life is good for you,
I hope life is good for you.

Ohhhhhhhhhh!

  1. Edvard Munch

    This should have been a single instead of "Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool" honestly

    I first heard this song form a bus ride from Fukuoka to Osaka. It was dawn and we arrived in Osaka riding down downtown on the highway when my friend made me hear this song.. this song made me fall in love in Japan after hitting a low point having lived there so long at that point... This song reminds me of the place I plan to return to someday. Somehow I will return to you: Japan.
