about

One of Twelve.

lyrics

In a palace of ice, this side of paradise
Its a long way out, a short way in
For all the sad young men

With a taste for irony, and the offshore piracy
Oh benediction, we were slammed
By the beautiful and damned

I may bend, I may bite
I may buckle in the night
Slow my hand, because I am
Just an ordinary man

Holding on, because things will get easier
If I sing this song when I'm delirious

For a day on a throne, he resolved to walk alone
So he ploughed a field of sound
Until his blood spilt on the ground

And the tales he was told, made his blood run hot then cold
Winter dreams, jelly beans
The camel's back and majesty

Holding on, because things will get easier
If I sing this song when I'm delirious
Oh brother keep holding on
Because things will get easier
If you sing this song when you're delirious

Oh russet witch, Mr Ick, keep them coming fast and thick
The freshest boy, a perfect life
And tender is the night

Now I won't bend, I won't bite
I won't buckle in the night
Slow my hand, because I am
Just an ordinary man
