The Libertines - Time For Heroes lyrics

Did you see the stylish kids in the riot?
Shovelled up like muck, set the night on fire
Wombles bleed truncheons and shields
You know I cherish you, my love

But there's a rumour spread nasty disease around town
Caught around the houses with your trousers down
A head rush and in the bush
You know I cherish you, my love
Oh, how I cherish you, my love

Tell me what can you want?
Now you've got it all, ah, the scene is obscene
Time will strip it away, a year and a day
And Bill Bones, Bill Bones knows what I mean

He knows it's eating, it's chewing me up
It's not right for young lungs to be coughing up blood
And it's all, it's all in my hands
And it's all up the walls

Now the stale chips are up and they hope stakes are down
It's these ignorant faces that bring this town down
And I sighed and sunken with pride
You know I passed myself down on my knees
Yes, I passed myself down on my knees

Tell me what can you want?
Now you've got it all, ah, the scene is obscene
Time will strip it away, a year and a day
And Bill Bones, Bill Bones knows what I mean

There's fewer more distressing sights than that
Of an Englishman in a baseball cap
And we'll die in the class we were born
That's a class of our own, my love
A class of our own, my love

Did you see the stylish kids in the riot?
Shovelled up like muck, set the night on fire
Wombles bleed, truncheons and shields
You know I cherish you, my love
Yeah, I cherish you, my love
