Flat of the Blade
Massive Attack Lyrics


I'm not good in a crowd,
I got skills I can't speak of

Things I've seen will chase me
To the grave

I'm not good in a crowd,
I got skills I can't speak of
Over there
Things that I've seen
Will chase me to the grave

Led with your hands tied
Fetters and flies

You stumble the dunes
Complain to the moon

Backs to the wheel
There's granite to shove

Take it
They give it
So rivet for rivet
I will pilfer my family a bulletproof love

How does it feel
The weight of the steel?

The weight of the steel
The flat of the blade

How does it feel
To kneel at defeat?

To kneel at defeat
At the choices you make

I'm not good in a crowd,
I got skills I can't speak of

Things I've seen will chase me
To the grave

Backs to the wheel
There's granite to shove

Take it
They give it
And rivet for rivet
I will build for my family a bulletproof love

Fact is though Flat of the Blade IS one of the best songs off Heligoland. IMHO i revere Heligoland as a perfect flawless album. If i really had to pick a 'weak' song it'd be Rush Minute.

Rustowski

@Karmacoma i did say if i 'had' to. I know rush minute is a gorgeous song

Rush Minute? Wtf? That song is amazing.

Karmacoma

Even rush minute is atmospheric and awesome though!

I'm not good in a crowd,
I got skills I can't speak of


Things I've seen will chase me
To the grave


I'm not good in a crowd,
I got skills I can't speak of


Over there
Things that I've seen
Will chase me to the grave


Led with your hands tied
Fetters and flies
You stumble the dunes
Complain to the moon


Backs to the wheel
There's granite to shove


Take it
They give it
So rivet for rivet
I will pilfer my family a bulletproof love


How does it feel
The weight of the steel?
The weight of the steel
The flat of the blade



How does it feel
To kneel at defeat?
To kneel at defeat
At the choices you make



I'm not good in a crowd,
I got skills I can't speak of


Things I've seen will chase me
To the grave


Backs to the wheel
There's granite to shove
Take it
They give it
And rivet for rivet
I will build for my family a bulletproof love
