Lyrics

You never were a happy child
Not careless not a minute light or lying
The more they ran a quicker mile
The more your feet would stop and smile
The stone collecting knight
But there was a corner glow so sober and bright
They were their grip on you
So you never craved for anything
But a lion call or similar ring out yonder
Someone was pulling chains up above
Like pencils grey turned black
Someone offering a sudden way to burn
A worthy way out of the flat
Big holes blunders or sudden death
We went like hip hop hup hop
Yeah we all would get to thirty-five
But never fire a start
We’d never think of anything you really ought to be glad
Tunnels ain’t it funny how
Tunnels they make us feel so tall
All we did was run and hide
Oxygen or hammer fight
Posing like a little god
That painted all the other hearts white
Tunnels are more hidden child
Tunnels are more relevant to you
A tunnel’s never been denied
Tunnels could be stealing your youth
And waiting for another car
No one gave a damn about fools like us
With a cold hand in your open shirt
You picked and payed your breeze
We woke the sunfair line
And on the road they amped the mike
We spent the time they wrote
While blood was waiting for a sign
And now we find a way
To turn out all those tunnel lights
With serial heart confess we fell for sense not size
And we’ll find an end to it soon
But we never got rid of those eyes
We were everybody’s pervert lies
Something you don’t talk about with guys
We struck a little tunnel road and looked for the whore with style
Something was more precious to you every minute filled you
You really didn’t have to go i really saw a star born in you
We’re never getting paid to look at the other end
We’ll never get a velcro stuck smile with these tunnels in mind
Cause we never gather anything with light bulbs repulsing our eyes
And these tunnels are like mules in spring that's what we just did
So you want to ride a car like that a-tunnelled rock?
