boltcutter lyrics – grinspoon

killer wax said the warden when she arrived on the scene first
heart attack, like the poet that needed another verse
when they find out about recent issues
don’t be surprised that there’s no one listening

boltcutter, to break those bolts and chains
you’ve suffered more than anyone can take
another person came to take your place
another boltcutter

k-mart, price collapse, and all the pounds were buried
beneath the corner of the manchester and the computers section
where i got kidnapped then scarred
falling from grace was a big decision
cos you had placed in the compet*tion ring

boltcutter, to break those bolts and chains
you’ve suffered more than anyone could take
another person came to take your place
another boltcutter… hey!

when you’re getting old, is it better? (x4)
now you’re getting old, is it better?
when you’re getting old, is it better?

you made this the compet*tion that it was never meant to be
because of opportunist students
and if there was a prize, it was within yourself
follow that road to the oldest city
give me that rope and i’ll show you how to swing

boltcutter, to break those bolts and chains
you’ve suffered more than anyone could take
another person came to take your place
another boltcutter, hey!
