The Litter And The Leaves Lyrics

The Litter And The Leaves by Enter The Haggis  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The Litter And The Leaves Another link in the chain getting rusty breaking
Down in the gutter with a smile
It's another case of finding your place
Another number showing what it's made of
But the sun sweeps the shadows from the concrete
Morning comes and it's another day
But the streets have voices, the walls have ears
And they're never gonna go away

On our feet is where we're gonna land
(You can find me in the gutter)
The gutter is the place where we will make our stand
And with a smile on my face and a bottle in my hand
You can find me in the gutter in the morning
Here with the litter and the leaves we tremble
Here's where our memories were made
All the real life starts in the gutters and the bars
Long after the light of day has faded
Cause we just don't know how to take it we feel
Cheated and excited and afraid
As they all shake hands and draw their lines in the sand
And forget about the mess they've made

On our feet is where we're gonna land
Placing the blame on the chain of command
And with a smile on my face and a bottle in my hand
You'll find me in the gutter in the morning

They have been sighted, they have been indicted
We have ignited, to break until they bend
We will deny them, this will be our anthem
We will defy them, til the bitter end

Words, witnesses heard
We know it's not that simple
Their lies open our eyes
Force us to rise irate
The world isn't this small
We know it's not that simple
And the gutters give birth and we're filling the street
And the city will shake with the sound of our feet

And we'll sing our gutter anthem til the day we die

Life goes on, the city fades away
You can't see the fireworks by the light of day
We're not on the payroll, we're just getting by
But we'll sing our gutter anthem till we die, die, die
We'll sing our gutter anthem till we die
