patrolling days lyrics – the hives

patrolling days

waited far too long
for this day to dawn
marked position with an x and kept floating on
now i stretch and yawn
all impostors gone
once again it’s time to reap and sow
i’m a rising tide
rollercoaster ride
we’re ch-ch-chuggin right into the fun
i wont be denied
so you open wide
cause i’m only looking out for you

my patrolling days are over
and i ain’t shot n*body since
i fought the big cheese out of office
and showed the hep kids how to dance
and now we’re gonna take a ride on the wiggle and sway
i got my finger on the trigger and it’s time to play
and with every little step i blow your mind away
forever h-p-a!

what now! it’s going down!
from way up top to the down low
take a chromosome
make it monochrome
and i’ll tell you what i’m gonna do
be a rising tide
rollercoaster ride
we’re ch-ch-chuggin right into the fun
i wont be denied
so you open wide
cause i’m only looking out for you

my patrolling days are over
and i ain’t shot n*body since
i fought the big cheese out of office
and showed the hep kids how to dance
and now we’re gonna take a ride on the wiggle and sway
i got my finger on the trigger and it’s time to play
and with every little step i blow your mind away
forever h-p-a!

cause see i rolled in through the back door
when it was my turn for throne
i never wanted to stand on your pedestal man
cause i was born to build my own
when they say do or die, i said no way no how,
they said i wouldn’t last for long

but i’m still standing in the hurricane’s eye and it’s dancing to my song
again i rolled in round the back door, no i ain’t got no common sense
so you can b*tch and whine,
but you best stand aside cause i’m doing it again
well no i won’t unwind, i wont be dumped behind,
i wont be coolly led astray
so on the dotted line, i slit my thumb and sign yours truly, hpa!

my patrolling days are over
and i ain’t shot n*body since
i fought the big cheese out of office
and showed the hep kids how to dance
and now we’re gonna take a ride on the wiggle and sway
i got my finger on the trigger and it’s time to play
and with every little step i blow your mind away
forever h-p-a!
