Paroles officielles de la chanson "Little Wonder"

Well, it's my very little wonder, it's one that I will keep
You can take it with you if it helps you when you're trying to sleep
And the men who are a cut above today are often not so very deep
Young ladies of means will say, I am, I am, I am, I am, I am
Sittin' on the edges of their seats on the light rail tram
Amongst the could-a-beens, also rans
It's very little wonder if you cry, it's very little wonder you don't cry
The birds were framed, babies were framed, so too the black sky
You can't hear the ready laughter in my song
When I was laughing all day yesterday and all night along
Till we shook off the fears, had us both in tears
O brother, don't clean out your ears and you might be amazed
To find the secrets of the city in its alley ways
In the bins behind the swill cafes
Amid the clean-picked chicken bones and cartilage a spirit groans
Small heartbeats and a red beak groans
O pity, where's my little body gone?
You'll know why it's very little wonder, you don't cry
Don't be ashamed of a guilty little rain, don't be ashamed
It's just the drink, it's just the drink, it's just the drink
One marks a place, one makes a time
One stops a living and one goes about dying
Somebody blew their brains out in this room
I can feel it like it happened just this afternoon
On the wall behind some furniture there's a stain in a shape of Africa
O fear walks tall, when it's halfway up the hill with its friend alcohol
I could hear the heavy footsteps in his hollow halls
Little wonder that he soon devised to rid them all
In one great gushing fall
The billion tiny devil's feet which nightly walked that bloody beat
Hi ho, ho hum, get yourself a gun
Open up your heart, let the bleeders run
Hi ho, ho hum, move this thing along
Open up your heart, let the evening come
Hi ho, ho hum, get yourself a gun
Open up your heart, let the bleeders run
Hi ho, ho hum, think about your mum
Open up your heart, let the evening come darkly in
