Metric Police And The Private Lyrics

Last updated: 05/16/2010 11:00:00 AM

Get straight, wait here while I try to find the exit sign
When will you stop asking strangers, no one wants what we want
Keep one eye on the door, keep one eye on the back
Never expect to be sure

You're working for the police and the private, the pirates and the pilots
Fingerprinted waiting for the train
The doctor, the writer, the hairdresser,
Felt up and fingerprinted waiting for the train

Lord lord mother, you're all losing love
Lord listen love, you're all missing mama
Lord lord mother, you're all losing love
Lord listen love, you're all missing something I don't got

There's a place that ends here I know
When they close the gates I'll cry
I'm so tired of never sleeping
The whole world wants what we're on

Didn't make this up I learned, I learned it from a friend
My friend is coming clean, she told me
Keep one eye on the door, keep one eye on the bed
Never expect to be sure, who you're working for

You're working for the police and the private, the pirates and the pilots
Fingerprinted waiting for the train
The doctor, the writer, the garbage collector
Fingerprinted waiting for the train

Lord lord mother, you're all losing love
Lord listen love, you're all missing mama
Lord lord mother, you're all losing love
Lord listen love, you're all missing mama

Lord lord mother, you're all losing love
Lord listen love, you're all missing mama
Lord lord mother, you're all losing love
Lord listen love, you're all missing love

Got to get out
Got to get to you, the orphanage is closing in an hour
