Lyrics

I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving England is mine, it owes me a living But ask me why, and I'll spit in your eye Oh, ask me why, and I'll spit in your eye But we cannot cling to the old dreams anymore No, we cannot cling to those dreams

Does the body rule the mind Or does the mind rule the body? I dunno

Under the iron bridge we kissed And although I ended up with sore lips It just wasn't like the old days anymore No, it wasn't like those days, am I still ill? Oh Am I still ill? Oh

Does the body rule the mind Or does the mind rule the body? I dunno

Ask me why, and I'll die Oh, ask me why, and I'll die And if you must, go to work, tomorrow Well, if I were you I wouldn't bother For there are brighter sides to life And I should know, because I've seen them, but not very often

Under the iron bridge we kissed And although I ended up with sore lips It just wasn't like the old days anymore No, it wasn't like those days, am I still ill? Oh Am I still ill? Oh
