5 flucloxacillin lyrics – los campesinos!

Loading...

[verse 1]
five flucloxacillin rattle in the pit of my purse
among the ones and the twos, i never finished a course
doctor said, “don’t drink on antibiotics”
reply, “it doesn’t matter, hangover’s always chronic anyway”

[pre-chorus]
a peloton of oaps cycling up behind me
shouting, “step up your paces, we’ve got places to be”
a pile-on of oaps crashing in my slipstream
i turn, “shut up your faces, i’m not your domestique”

[chorus]
they say if they had got the victory
they’d act with so much more humility
they say if they had got the victory
well, i guess we’ll never know

[verse 2]
am i a piggy bank of obsolete currency?
an order of merit from country known for tyranny?
another blister pack pops, but i still feel much the same
thirty-one, and depression is a young man’s game
found a fiver screwed up inside a prescription receipt
from the salbutamol (no, a gift from the sertraline)
hallowed be somnolence brought on by the tramadol
d-mned be the knowledge that’s it, now you have tried ’em all

[pre-chorus]
a peloton of oaps cycling up behind me
shouting, “step up your paces, we’ve got places to be”
a pile-on of oaps crashing in my slipstream
i turn, “shut up your faces, i’m not your domestique”

[chorus]
they say if they had got the victory
they’d act with so much more humility
they say if they had got the victory
well, i guess we’ll never know
well, i guess we’ll never know
well, i guess we’ll never know
well, i guess we’ll never know
