Lyrics


Up the wall

Pictures high on walls.
glamorizing war.
Jesus just below,
Images of Love.
The Pope looks really fine,
In natural colored wood.
And Mona lisa’s never old,
just misunderstood.

Pour me another glass of wine,
you call them laws, i call them crimes.
A picture in my head of some great escape
(to where to whom)
I'll never know, you'll never know.
(from where from whom).

Shitty luck in life,
Can't seem to pay the rent.
burn your cards and cheques
confront your government.
The drugs taste really fine
in unemployment lines,
and you were always warned,
you just never cared.

Pour me another glass of wine,
you fucked me left, now you'll fuck me right
A picture in my head of some great escape
(to where to whom)
I'll never know, you'll never know.
(from where from whom).

Lost in perfection,
worshiping technology.
a movement of ideas
so called philanthropy.
Further away from love,
further up the wall.
and as we're nearing war
watch your pictures fall

Pour me another glass of wine,
read me my rights if we're still in time.
A picture in my head of some wild escape
(to where to whom)
I'll never know, you'll never know.
(from where from whom).
