Treasure Island

Stay Wrong


Stay strong
Stay wrong
Keep your head up high
When its all going down

Its blue down town
Slums are getting colder
Soldiers getting bolder
A bullet to the heart
Then it all falls apart
The showdown's about to start

Play rough
Be tough
Pray to God you escape the cuffs
Wake up smell the blood
Let it flood
Lose your mind
Listen to the divine hymn
Ask forgiveness then commit crime

White lies cover black lines
Behind the clouds, sunshine

Stay strong
Stay wrong

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
