Straylight Run Sympathy for the Martyr Lyrics

You just can’t relax and you can’t rely
On anyone for anything
So you make your complaints
And all everyone’s let you down
You just can’t ever win

Convinced there’s a war and it’s always
Everybody versus you
(Ba bada dada dada)
Convinced that your critics are watching
And you’ve always got something
You’ve always got something to prove

So tie the noose
And raise the cross
The martyr’s arrived
A desperate plea
For sympathy, it’s all you need

A laundry list of problems doesn’t make you interesting
And never getting help doesn’t make you brave
Not listening to reason doesn’t mean that you have faith
You’re just cutting off your nose to spite your face

So tie the noose
And raise the cross
The martyr’s arrived
A desperate plea
For sympathy, it’s all you need

And you want it all
(Ba bada dada dada)
Ba bada dada dada
You want it, you want it all
Ba bada dada dada
Ba bada dada dada
You want it, you want it all

You want it all

[You want it, you want it all
Ba bada dada dada
Ba bada dada dada] (x 8)
