Lady Liberty

Placebo's Notes

When I was 9, I moved from the east coast of the States to Switzerland.

This track is meant to take the country of America and represent it as an ex-girlfriend, to which I made this song. It's an idea I've been working on for quite some time and now, thanks to the help from Fabian Sandfuchs at #ArgovianSC, it's finished.

//Verse
 
I remember when the rules were hard to break
We would dwell on every one of our mistakes
A couple cigarettes is all it takes
While my old man's sillhouette follows pace
 
Lookin at the charred remains
of our lives as we shrug an we walk in place
Lost in a chronic haze
Haven't thought about the rest since we parted ways
 
first night alone i slept on the floorboards
Thought id never smile again, rottin like a poor corpse
Dark room, like i'm livin' in blackout
You were gone, just a piece of my past now
 
I was lost without you
you tossed me out too, they all love talkin' bout you
'Cause you're so damn pretty overseas
But when you get up close, you'll see just why i'm over she
 
//Hook
 
Good riddance
Lady Liberty lies
yea she lookin for affection at the minimum price
Good riddance
Lady Liberty cries but
she's still holdin' out a bowl for all your nickles and dimes
Good riddance
Lady Liberty's kiss
Keep the people convinced that their freedom is bliss
Good riddance
Makin' history, bitch
The lines from the states but the delivery's swiss
 
//Verse
 
we all grew when we relocated
the lot of us all of us nothing but changed men
was proud to call you mine but im prouder to be outta there
now im trippin balls an im smokin with the mountaineers
 
and youre a mess now, you got a new man
but let me tell you, bitch that goblin isnt human
Now you all about the cash, left your dreams in the casket
And to this fucking day im sure you think you're fantastic
 
Well you're dirty. To many scumbags
screwin' this dumb hag ruin the batch,
i'll never come back, never return,
silence your sirens so you remember my verse
 
I guess it aint your fault I never believed in you
Is this the relationship that i'm pledgin' my allegiance to?
There was a time when I would never doubt your words
But every time you grab my heart and Rip it out, it hurts
 
Good riddance
Lady Liberty lies
yea she lookin for affection at the minimum price
Good riddance
Lady Liberty cries but
she's still holdin' out a bowl for all your nickles and dimes
Good riddance
Lady Liberty's kiss
Keep the people convinced that their freedom is bliss
Good riddance
Makin' history, bitch
The lines from the states but the delivery's swiss
 
//Verse
 
dont know up from down
but I know back home was a fucked up. town
Light the fires
with the liberty torches
the Pied Piper
got no sympathy for us
 
the american dream
will tear at the seams
I guess the world just aint as fair as it seems
It aint me, its you, bitch
Now i make music just to tell em all what you did
