Bloc Party - Four Album Lyrics



Bloc Party - Four Lyrics






So He Begins To Lie

The camera's watching
He takes a breath
Even though that they know
That he knows
That they're on to him
He don't break a sweat, no

It grows and grows and grows
Inside of him
There's nothing there
All along he knows
Those mirrors started to lie to him
His reflection faded

The crowd are waiting
He takes the stage
Cross his heart, hand on heart, open heart
That he's gone legit
He was never there, no

As easy as closing his eyes
So he begins to lie

The camera's watching
The camera's watching him lie

3x3

Three times three
First cut first
Pierce the skin
It binds us
Spit cum blood
Liquid wax
No one loves you
As much as us

By all in me that's holy
By all in me that's blessed
I made to you a promise
That this is forever and ever
Amen

Three times three
Lose all fear
Let the flames
Dry those tears
It takes hurt
To be pure
Now you're one of
You're one of us

No means no

No/Yes
No
Yes...

Octopus

It hid and it hid in his bedroom
Psycho killer teen dream action film
Gonna show you how we get down
In my hood

Bubbling bubbling cheap champagne
Leyendecker hole wrecker feel no pain
Lying face down when I swing your way
And what?
What's my name, what's my name?

Mary Anna said it's a no-go
She don't feel like, she don't think so
I don't know why I feel like crying
Well come on, come on
Say come on, come on

They ran and they ran from his classroom
Roll another 40, make them scream
Gonna show you how we do things
In my hood

Tripping and a-tripping, erase all tapes
John Wayne, Rob Roy feel no pain
This is the point where you look the other way

You done
Lost your mind

Real Talk

Can we get real for a moment?
You're my one and only friend

Watch the sunset from your sedan
Let your hand rest on mine

I've lived in every town
But here is where I find home

My mind is open
And my body is yours
Show me the sign
Please

I was so sure, I was faulty
And not able to love
But then you crept up on me
While I was dreaming
Whispered love into my ear

If you're tired
I can drive us
We can go back
To my place

My mind is open
And my body is yours
Show me the sign
Please

Kettling

We smash the window
Popo don't f*ck around
As their cameras take pictures of us
We just laugh
We laugh

Because they can't stop this
We can feel it in our bones
The future's ours, yes it is
We can feel it in our bones

We drop the lighter into the gas
If the whole world is watching us
Let them watch us
Let them watch

They can't stop this
We can feel it in our bones
The future's ours, yes it is
We can feel it in our bones

Day Four

It's in the trees
It's in the leaves
This time I know
That I'll stay clean

Anything it gives
Anything it gives it will take back
The city's here for you

My light burns low
And I know it's running out
They say stay brave
But I know it will return

I've felt death
Rising from me
From my fingers
And out my mouth

If you're ever lonely
If you are alone stay that way
The city's here for you

My light burns low
And I know it's running out
They say stay brave
But I know it will return
On the fourth day
On day four

Coliseum

Got nightmare walking on two legs
There's a word for people like us
Can't shake the feeling
We're moving backwards
History repeating itself

Ain't got time to prove
Why even bother?
Just ignore the signs
Ain't got time to lose
Can't change the drama
In time you'll see
The empire never ended

McSweeney draws first blood
Teeth hit the floor
Fingers twitch on the remote
The crowd want more more more
They're waiting for the ground and pound
To turn his face into raw meat
Little Johnny turns to mommy
"This is is what I want to be..."

Because

Pain is hopeful
Pain is holy
Pain is healthy
Pain heals

V.A.L.I.S.

When in motion
World is frozen
Talks in circles and Greek
He's into epiphany
He's into philosophy
He's into methyl amphetamines
He's into science
But he's lost his way
He's not the real me, but I can hear
I can hear, I can hear him
From my future

Show, show, show show me
You gotta show me the way

Past and present
Are superimposed
He has seen this before
He's into conspiracy
He's into theophany
He's into phenomenology
He's into deeds
He don't mix his words
He's not the real me, but I can hear
I can hear, I can hear him
From my future

Show, show, show show me
You gotta show me the way

Team A

How many times do I have to tell you?
That these are my things
Been running your mouth
But people been listening
If you wanna throw down
We can go downtime
Any time, any damn time
Any time of the week

See I know that you're hating
Anticipating a breakthrough
I been there, done that, over with
Ain't nothing you can teach me
Ain't got no time for Le Baron
Ain't got no time for The Alibi
No we ain't cool boy, don't even try

I'm going to ruin your life

See we ain't at school, snitches get stitches
You might be fast boy but I'm faster than you
So let's make this clear, no misunderstandings
Better watch where you're walking and watch what you say
Any time, any damn time, any time of the week

Ain't got no time for Yo Yo, ain't got no time for The Groucho
No we ain't cool and you don't even know

I'm going to ruin your life

Truth

It was the truth
That fell from these lips
It blinded us
And then the darkness left

So I am yours now
Respectfully
I am yours now
Truthfully

It burnt the stain
Left on my mind
Our hearts, our hearts, they beat
A quarter tone apart

Cause I am yours now
Respectfully
Why can't I do it?
You complete me

Our kind is hard to find
And if it will be
It will be with you

I am yours now
Respectfully
I am yours now
Truthfully

The Healing

Calm down, let the world spin round
There ain't no other place to be
Take this lifeline
Skin tears
But the flesh will weave
Back together again
Only scars now

Go easy, just be
As life gets longer
Got all the time you need
Stay with me my dear
As life gets harder
Whatever strikes, you'll heal
You will heal

Breathe out, let it come around
Let your colours return
Turn a corner
Every time he barks
Just shut the devil out
Let these arms embrace
You know I'm down

You will heal

We Are Not Good People

Think fast boy, think on your feet
If you don't know it now you never will
You're so young to be so heavy
Rip off the seal and let me school you

You see angels melt when they touch the ground
You see you're not dumb, you're just not aligned
Because you could be the one percent
If you wanna

We're not good people
This is a warning

If God is God then why is he secret?
Today's the day you've been set free
They might claim the best things are hidden
But I was here, you came to me

With these five lines you will be reborn
A superman or maybe a jock
You can crush the whole world in your hand
If you wanna

We've got the doorway
We've got the hallway
You can't restore yourself

We're not good people
This is a warning
