The Lines

lyrics

First come, first served
I got here first
Red in tooth and claw...
Read the sign and keep your distance
Keep away from me
I’m not on your side...
I can’t recognise a scrap of myself in you
And I can’t get over it
I can’t get my head around it
“If there is something wrong
I can look after you”
These aren’t the lines on which we think
“How are you getting on?
I can look out for you”
You were built to break
It’s not my problem
It’s a natural law...
It’s so natural and all your weakness
Puts me on edge
I’ve got my eye on you...
I refuse you the peace and quiet that you seek
I’m not your ally
I am an island
