lyrics

There’s more gravity in a bottle
Than there is in a jug or a glass
In case you feel you need to drink
It down hard and fast.

When an army gets to shore they burn
Their boats before they attack
That way they have to win
Cause there’s no turning back.

A ship is safe in the harbour
But that’s not what it is for.
What good is a window
On a house with no door.

Faites ce que je dis
Vendredi, Samedi et Dimanche
Arrête vos niaiseries
Et je vous donnerai une journée de relâche.

Faites ce que je dis
Vendredi, Samedi et Dimanche
Arrête vos niaiseries
Et je vous donnerai mon cœur sur ma manche.

There’s more humanity in a dog
Than there is in the highest class
In case you feel your speed
Got you there first but you came in last

When you build a castle out of sand
The sea will wash it away
That way you’ll be building
A new castle every day.

What good is a child
Unless they do their chores?
What good is a diamond
If otherwise you’re poor?

A ship is safe in the harbour
But that’s not what it is for.
What good is a window
On a house with no door.
