Lyrics Declan McKenna - The Key to Life on Earth

"The Key to Life on Earth"

gold, let it unfold, imagine you’re dressed in gold,
roaring crowds in manchester will manage to be told,
oh and your king
the boy you loved in spring,
the way she looks at him,
the common goal,
and waiting for the kids to go

we’ve been, held back for after school meetings,
they’ve got it in for me,
for what its worth,
the key to, life on earth

jokers, happy go xenophobe locals,
have got it in for me,
for all im worth
the key to, life on earth

holy smokes,
you kids and your jokes,
asking where we got our jeans,
and where the hell we found our coats,
cause dirty streets these days are graced by nikes of black and green,
and headstrong boys in chinos barely grasp what that could mean,
and they lie,
then men that wrung us dry,
the boys who poked your eye,
the common fool, the walk to school for you and i

we’ve been, held back for after school meetings,
theyve got it in for me,
for what its worth,
the key to, life on earth

the thing is, the out of touch, scrounging rich kids, 
are living here for free,
on my home turf
the key to, life on earth,

call in to wake you up in the morning, iron your suit and tie forever till you die

join forces like carousels and their horses forever spinning round,
and never coming down

come out and join us honey we will sort u out
come work in brookfield park and we will shut your mouth
come work in sainsburys babe until you’ve had enough
come on out come on out
