Lyrics

You can’t
You can’t get it
You can’t
You can’t do it
(etc)
You can feel that blood inside

You can’t
You can’t get it
You can’t
You can’t do it
(etc)
You can feel that blood inside

Understand me now
Understand me good
Understand these words
I just want to be understood
Yeh yeh

Cause I can not even hear no more
Cause I can not hear those sirens singing
Cause I don’t wanna know, I don’t know the score
Cause it looks to me like this world is winning
So don’t open up your mouth and tell me it isn’t true now
Don’t tell me the rain is going to fall down

Oh yeeeeeh
And it’s thicker than you
So far I go

What do you want to follow me for?
Follow me no more
What do you want to follow me for?
Follow me no more

Oooooooooooooooh

It’s going to pour down around you
So hold my hand and tell me it isn’t true
Yeh, it’s gonna pour down around you (?)
So hold your hand and tell me it isn’t true

You can’t
You can’t get it
You can’t
You can’t do it
(etc)
You can feel that blood inside

(repeat another three times)

What do you want to follow me for?
Follow me no more
What do you want to follow me for?
Follow me no more

What do you want to follow me for?
Follow me no more
What do you want to follow me for?
Follow me no more
