The Bad Thing
Arctic Monkeys Lyrics


Do the bad thing
Take off your wedding ring
But it won't make it that much easier
It might make it worse

Oh, the night's like a whirlwind
Somebody's girlfriend's talkin' to me, but it's alright
She's sayin' that he's not gonna slap me or try to attack me
He's not the jealous type
And I only need to get half an excuse and I'm away
But when there's no excuses, that's much easier to say
I've been before
And all these capers make her too forward to ignore
Well, she's talkin', but I'm not entirely sure, oh

Do the bad thing
Take off your wedding ring
But it won't make it that much easier
It might make it worse

Oh, I'm standing at the bar and somebody's partner's talkin' to me
But I don't know that is what she isn't
She murmurs things to confirm that the tragedy is true
And I knew how she could have anyone she wants
And I'm strugglin' to think of an immediate response

Like, I don't mind
Be a big mistake
For you to wait
And let me waste your time
Really, love, it's fine
Really, love, it's fine

And then the first time it occurred that there was something to destroy

I knew before the invitation that there was this ploy
Oh, but she carried on suggestin' a struggle to refuse
She said, 'it's the red wine this time, but that is no excuse.'

Do the bad thing

But it won't make it that much easier
It might make it worse
Oh, the night's like a whirlwind
Somebody's girlfriend's talking to me, but it's alright
She's saying that he's not gonna slap me or try to attack me
He's not the jealous type
And I only need to get half an excuse and I'm away
But when there's no excuses, that's much easier to say
I've been before
And all these capers make us to look for it to ignore
See, she's talking but I'm not entirely sure (ah)
Do the bad thing
Take off your wedding ring
But it won't make it that much easier
It might make it worse
Oh, a sudden disheartener
Somebody's partner's talking to me
But I don't know that is what she isn't
She murmurs things to confirm that the tragedy is true
And I knew, how could she not? She could have anyone she wants
And I'm struggling to think of an immediate response
Like, "I don't mind, it'd be a big mistake for you to wait
And let me waste your time
Really, love, it's fine"
I said, "Really, love, it's fine"
And then the first time it occurred that there was something to destroy
I knew before the invitation that there was this ploy
Oh, but she carried on suggestin', a struggle to refuse
She said, "It's the red wine this time, " but that is no excuse

LYRICS:

Sometimes there's a crack in the world that I can peer through,
To see it for what it really is.
There's an ugly face staring back.
Demons are everywhere.
They draw the hatred from inside of me.
There were times at the top of the Earth that I wish that I could throw
Everyone and everything.
Watch the mountains snap the necks of the hypocrites,
I'm bathing in the thought of it.

The severed dreams of all the weak, quenching thirst inside of me,
And the scream it holds the key, unlocking this for all to see.

Fly past the trees, ascend to holy air and breathe
Far from the leaves, transcend these earthly boundaries
Fly past the trees, ascend to holy air and breathe
Far from the leaves, transcend the fucking boundaries

Isn't this desire that you're looking for?
Or is insanity just knocking at your door?
And give me just a piece and surely you will find,
Everything is better on the other side.
But can you look within and find what is in store?
This life is but a scream that has become your whore
It's tearing a hole inside
You're buried alive.

Sometimes there's a hole in the Earth that I can step through,
To get away from the twisting of tongues.
It looks a lot like a grave when I'm staring up,
Feeling the soil creep over me.
There were times at the top of the Earth that I wish that I could throw
Everyone and everything.
Watch the mountains snap the necks of the hypocrites,
I'm bathing in the thought of it.

I'd like a reason just to help them bleed.
Give me a reason, come on give it to me.

Fly past the trees,
Far from the leaves,
Fly past the trees, ascend to holy air and breathe
Far from the leaves, transcend the earthly boundaries

Isn't this desire that you're looking for?
Or is insanity just knocking at your door?
And give me just a piece and surely you will find,
Everything is better on the other side.
But can you look within and find what is in store?
This life is but a scream that has become your whore
It's tearing a hole inside
You're buried alive.

Yeah, there's a crack in the Earth, there's a crack in the Earth, yeah
I'd like a reason just to help them bleed.
Give me a reason, come on give it to me.
