Lyrics

The lanes were silent There was nothing, no one, nothing around for miles I doused our friendly venture With a hard-faced Three-word gesture

I started something I forced you to a zone And you were clearly Never meant to go Hair brushed and parted Typical me, typical me Typical me I started something And now I'm not too sure

I grabbed you by the guilded beams Uh, that's what tradition means And I doused another venture With a gesture That was absolutely vile

I started something I forced you to a zone And you were clearly Never meant to go Hair brushed and parted Typical me, typical me Typical me I started something And now I'm not too sure

I grabbed you by the guilded beams Uh, that's what tradition means And now eighteen months' hard labor Seems fair enough

I started something And I forced you to a zone And you were clearly Never meant to go Hair brushed and parted Typical me, typical me Typical me I started something And now I'm not too sure

I started something I started something Typical me, typical me Typical me, typical me Typical me, typical me Typical me I started something And now I'm not too sure

OK Stephen, do that again?
