lyrics

Have you heard the latest?
Guess they're on to me
Fiction, fact, the judgement's passed
Trajectory complete

A game of reputation
Word of mouth to feed
Who made you the justice gun
The judge and the jury?

Words on the attack
The cannonballs you fire

Keep on loading barrels
You're safe inside the boat
'Til your name is the skull they paint
Upon the ol' crossbones

Words on the attack
The cannonballs you fire
Light the fuse and laugh
And watch 'em fall into the sea below
I wanted to be friends not foes

Eye for eye
Knocked out my teeth
It's the not the way that it's gotta be

Words on the attack
The cannonballs you fire
Light the fuse and laugh
And watch 'em falling over
Why are you words on the attack?
The cannonballs you fire
Light the fuse and laugh
And watch 'em fall into the sea below
I wanted to be friends not foes
But you just like the smell of smoke
