Morrissey Life Is A Pigsty Lyrics

Last updated: 12/09/2012 11:10:00 AM

Life Is A Pigsty

It’s the same old S.O.S.
But with brand new broken fortunes
And once again I turn to you
Once again I do I turn to you
It’s the same old S.O.S.
But with brand new broken fortunes
I’m the same underneath
But this you, you surely knew
Life is a pigsty
Life is a pigsty
Life is a pigsty
Life is a pigsty
Life, life is a pigsty
Life, life is a pigsty
Life, life is a pigsty
Life is a pigsty
And if you don’t know this
Then what do you know?
Every second of my life I only live for you
And you can shoot me
And you can throw me off a train
I still maintain
I still maintain
Life, life is a pigsty
Life is a pigsty
And I’d been shifting gears all along my life
But I’m still the same underneath
This you surely knew
I can’t reach you
I can’t reach you
I can’t reach you anymore
Can you please stop time?
Can you stop the pain?
I feel too cold
And now I feel too warm again
Can you stop this pain?
Can you stop this pain?
Even now in the final hour of my life
I’m falling in love again
Again
Even now in the final hour of my life
I’m falling in love again
Again
Again
Again
I’m falling in love again
Again
Again
Again

POETRY CAN´T BE DISCUSSED | Reviewer: Renato | 12/7/12

Morrissey is a poet, and poetry is a manifestation of his own mind and soul. Morrissey is and always was melancholic, depressive, and sad, and his poetry (since the time of The Smiths) always expressed that.
"Life is a Pigsty" is a wonderful and intense song...a perfect song that express very well Moz's soul. Just like so many other Morrissey's song, this song talks to many people, but it is not his intention to be understood by all.

There are wars and misery all over the world. People are killed in the streets of the U.S.A or Europe, children are killed by israeli bombs in Palestine. Wars are still occurring in Middle East... Serbia and the rest of the Balkans suffered with wars for centuries...That doesn´t mean that a poet should be in silence. Blame the politicians e let the artists to say what has to be said.

true to you, in my own strange way. | Reviewer: Jay | 6/26/12

In the depths of your despair, when life has treated you like a pigsty, again. When you need a voice, to know that someone feels your pain, that man has always been there. You couldnt create somthying like this except from the heart.

Wonderful. | Reviewer: Solange | 11/11/11

This song is a masterpiece... not only its content, but also the power with which Morrissey sings it. It particularly makes my hair stand on end. I do admit, of course, that it is painful, however, you don't need to listen to it over and over to feel depressed; you can only relate to it, period. I just can't stand it when so many people criticize Morrissey negatively for his style... why don't they listen to something else? Fellows, classify your songs better and enjoy it when a song and the way it is sung is incredible, like this one. Oh, and the fact that this guy is rich doesn't make him happy, so shut up and learn to live life!

life is a pigsty | Reviewer: Abel | 6/21/08

music to my ears is what i have to say, this song is Morrissey through and through, and if he doesnt make you think twice about how much we as humans affect ourselves then you dont know what it is to be human. it seems he knows exactly what to say to re-assure you thats you are human and you have a right to feel this way because everything is not candy coated like most people make it out to be.

The Ultimate | Reviewer: liz | 1/26/08

Having been a fan of Mozza and the Smiths for more years than i care to remember, this is the man at his ultimate best!! Having seen him perform it recently at The Roundhouse, London, it blew me away.. Yes there was a tear in the eye, touches the heart this track, let's face it we can all relate to it...

me me me me | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/6/08

Enough about you, he didn't write that song thinking about you, self centered miserable bitches. You don't always have to relate your sorry life to every song you hear or every movie you see.

"Somebody have to flip burgers and I'm glad it's not me"

Amazing | Reviewer: Josh | 12/13/07

Yeah, it was raining on my way to work and then all of a sudden this song came on with the thunder crashing and rain falling in the background of the song and it was a wonderful way to classify the misery outside the cab window. Life indeed is a pigsty. But the pain Morrissey sings about is about a love which he wishes to ignore but knows will only resurface - a pain most of us will always endure.

perfect song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/11/07

Really, if you do not cry with this song you're not a human being.... i agree my friend

the most adorable song i've ever listened to.....

this song changed my whole life

yes i am a human being.....

life is sometimes a pigsty!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/8/07


Sean i just can't understand the way u are thinking mate!!
so according to you, singers or groups should not play music on countries which have suffered from war
(like Serbia) or from poverty (like Mexico)???
don't think that the fans would appreciate your thinking...

furthermore SP Morrissey isn't a medicine for depression...doctors are the solution 2 u Shimon!!
so no need to burn their cd's or not listening 2 them...but mozz hasn't ever said...hey guys who suffer from depression..listen to me and be ok!!!

this song is magnificent...2 my opinion the best of his solo carrer...and equivalent to It's Over
keep the good job Mozzer!! we love you

enough misery-by-numbers gazillionaire rocker | Reviewer: sean | 9/30/07

I haven't listened to him in so long. Well done Simeon for breaking away, I was once trapped in that stew myself, it does you absolutely no good whatsoever to listen to Morrissey, it just keeps you there.

Watching him perform this in Serbia (on youtube) is an irony I can barely believe - he lives in Clarke Gable's mansion counting his millions of dollars and he's singing about his put-on misery to people who have been through civil war and Nato bombings.
Boo-hoo for you Morrissey

Enough! | Reviewer: Shimon | 9/4/07

I have spent my last two years, listening to Steven Patrick Morrissey, suffering with it, and handeling my pain. Well, f..k it. I am done digging in my own misery. I will stand up, with the help og music providing hope. I'm out here, my twelve Morrissey/Smiths record will never be played again, on any stereo.

Really, if you do not cry with this song you're not a human being. Its melancholical melody and the painfully true lyrics that morrissey performs are such a great shot into anyone's soul.
