The Darkness - Givin' Up Lyrics

The Darkness Permission to Land cover art

My mamma wants to know
Where I'm spending all my dough
Honey, all she does is nag, nag, nag
But I won't apologise
I'd inject into my eyes
If there was nowhere else to stick my skag

All I want is brown
And I'm going into town
Shooting up as soon as I'm back
My friends have got some good ****
All I want is some of it
Gimme, gimme, gimme that smack

Well I've ruined nearly all of my veins
Sticking that ****ing **** into my arms

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Givin' up, givin' up givin' a ****
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Givin' up, givin' up givin' a ****

Getting off my face
There's a dragon I must chase
Honey, I'm the scourge of all mankind
And everyone but me
Is destined just to be
Slaves to the remorseless grind

But I found myself an easy way out
Sticking that ****ing **** into my arms
Into my arms

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Givin' up, givin' up givin' a ****
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Givin' up, givin' up givin' a ****

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Givin' up, givin' up givin' a ****
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Givin' up, givin' up givin' a ****
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Givin' up, givin' up givin' a ****
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Givin' up, givin' up givin' a ****
