​M.I.A

This song is by This Way to the Egress and appears on the album Mighty Seed (2013).

Let's take a trip around the world.

Let's take a trip around the world,
See what you can see.
Don't talk too much, I wonder where you are.

Let's all laugh at the sea,
Such a salty means.
The sand it crunches underneath our feet.

I can't believe it's you,
Follow us around.
Hoping for our scraps just like a dog.

M.I.A is a good dog,
Just like a little flea.
Hopping all around and round our feet.

Pretending that we see
The urchins in the street,
Their bleeding as they toss us to our knees.

I can't believe it's me,
I used to be right next to them
And now it's like I never knew their names.

Pretending that we see
The urchins in the street,
Their bleeding as they toss us to our knees.

Let's take a trip into this bar,
Find what you can find.
These oceans are the blind leading the blind.

Feature is the break,
Broken down our feet,
And we are marching right into the sea.

I can't believe it's me,
Follow you around.
Hoping for your scraps just like a dog.

You are not a good dog,
Just like a tiny tick,
Falling up and down and down this trick.

Pretending that we see
The urchins in the street,
Their bleeding as they toss us to our knees.

I can't believe it's me,
I used to be right next to them
And now it's like I never knew their names.

Pretending that we see
The urchins in the street,
Their bleeding as they toss us to our knees.

You are so over zealous.
Pick up your sticks and tell us
What verse you want to hear
As you pass by.

Crescendo is a bit too loud now,
Toss of the coin, turn your hats round,
Fall into your pockets dear and come along.

There's a town way down that I want to see,
Caring not the path down into the street.
There's a man selling wares from his suitcase yes!
Hold it up to the light and I'm screaming now.

You can laugh, you can tease but we're going west,
To our neighbours yard inside clarence.
To the city or the next bazaar,
It's a wonder that we are alive at all.

Pretending that we see
The urchins in the street,
Their bleeding as they toss us to our knees.

I can't believe it's me,
I used to be right next to them
And now it's like I never knew their names.

Pretending that we see
The urchins in the street,
Their bleeding as they toss us to our knees.

I can't believe it's me,
I used to be right next to them
And now it's like I never knew their names.
