The Mission - Chelsea Blue lyrics
It's just like you oh Chelsea Blue
to ask me to fly and then you tether my wings
I always knew oh Chelsea Blue
how cold is the blood that flows through your veins
you patronize and you condescend
you delude yourself and you pretend
Too often wiser but also more despised
I swear by all the saints I will avenge you
I'm not ungracious but I'm also not obliged
And I won't apologise if I offend you
One man's trash is another's treasure
And one man's poison is another's pleasure
There's always two sides to a story
Do you abhor me or adore me?
I've been dying to tell you Chelsea Chelsea Blue
That privilege is a flight of your conceited imagination
Does it surprise you that I despise you?
And I thank God for my emancipation
You raise your sword to my olive branch
And your empire falls like an avalanche
How can you live in such denial?
Small minded prejudice is so vile
