Lyrics



You're not alive until you start kicking

When the room is spinning and the words ain't sticking

And the radio is all about a runaway model with a face like sin and a heart like a James Joyce novel



Saying "Sister, sister, how I missed ya, missed ya

Let's go wrist to wrist and take the skin off of my blister"

If you're a rockstar, pornstar, superstar, doesn't matter what you are

Get yourself a good car, get outta here



Well

But the boys in the better land

You're always talking 'bout the boys in the better land

The boys in the better land

But the boys in the better land

You're always talking 'bout the boys in the better land

The boys in the better land



Driver's got names to fill two double barrels

He spits out "Brits out", only smokes Carrolls

And he's refreshing the world in mind, body and spirit

Mind body and spirit

You better hear it and fear it

Oh, that's the spirit



Saying "Sister, sister, how I missed ya, missed ya

Let's go wrist to wrist and take the skin off of my blister"

If you're a rockstar, pornstar, superstar, doesn't matter what you are

Get yourself a good car, get outta here



Yeah

But the boys in the better land

You're always talking 'bout the boys in the better land

The boys in the better land

But the boys in the better land

You're always talkin' about the boys in the better land

The boys in the better land



Driver's got names to fill two double barrels

He spits out "Brits out", only smokes Carrolls

And he's refreshing the world in mind, body and spirit

Mind body and spirit

You better hear it and fear it

Oh, that's the spirit



Saying "Sister, sister, how I missed ya, missed ya

Let's go wrist to wrist and take the skin off of my blister"

If you're a rockstar, pornstar, superstar, doesn't matter what you are

Get yourself a good car, get outta here



Yeah

But the boys in the better land

You're always talking 'bout the boys in the better land

The boys in the better land

But the boys in the better land

You're always talkin' about the boys in the better land

The boys in the better land
