little beast lyrics – elbow

whole towns slippin’ down a hill
like a spine of something dead
slide in shadow cobble-creep
burn your mark and leave

trench conventions yellow eyes
follow her the local flower
the girls a priest to me at least
since baptism peroxide

fear is not respect, correct
but it’s the best you’re gonna get
sharp blow to the bridge of the nose
sharp blow and anything goes

fear is not respect, correct
but it’s the best you’re gonna get
sharp blow to the bridge of the nose
sharp blow and anything goes

/ elbow lyrics
