Everything Everything – No Reptiles Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Slip from the trees to the dirt to the menace
To the wild to the car, under snow, cut to ribbons
Like a coral to your shin, like a manacle to swing
Fresh from the breast, now a river running fat
To the manor born a rat, to the manor born a flea
To a flood to a drain, now a rubber, now a chain

[Bridge]
I was in the war
You were in the war

[Verse 2]
Plump from the sugar-water pump
With the city at your back to the cannon with a match
From a milk into a mass grave
Never mind that, I can take that
Bones in a bowl like a toad-in-the-hole
Take the shape of the mould
Like a mummy on a pole and a merry little head
Bob around when you’re dead

[Bridge]
I was on my knees
You were on your knees

[Chorus]
And no reptiles
Just soft boiled eggs in shirts and ties
Waiting for the flashing green man
Quivering and wobbling just like all the eggs you know

[Bridge]
I’m going to kill a stranger
So don’t you be a stranger

[Refrain 1]
Oh baby, it’s alright
It’s alright to feel like a fat child in a pushchair
Old enough to run
Old enough to fire a gun
Oh baby, it’s alright
It’s alright to feel like a fat child in a pushchair
Old enough to run
Old enough to fire a gun
Oh baby, it’s alright
It’s alright to feel like a fat child in a pushchair
Old enough to run
Old enough to fire a gun

[Refrain 2]
Just give me this one night
Just one night to feel like I might be on the right path
The path that takes me home
Wise enough to know myself
Just give me this one night
Just one night to feel like I might be on the right path
Old enough to fire a gun
Just give me this one night
Just one night to feel like I might be on the right path
The path that takes me home
Wise enough to know myself
Just give me this one night
Just one night to feel
