lyrics

Number One with a Bullet

It was highway robbery -"Your road to ruin"
Which boosted my economy-• And your misery"
To buy studio recording time-"Paid for by crime•
Do you think you're my conscience, my Jiminy Cricket?
I can rationalise my behaviour, do you think you can fix it?
"Do the means ever justify the ends
If you lose your liberty and all of your friends?"

You're number one. You're number one. You're number one with a bullet.
You call it fun. You're on the run from what you've done. Now you've done it.

The high and mighty 747
Pancake landed close to Heaven.
The passengers and crew survived.
Even the stowaway never died.
I lined them all up on the road nearby
They were so grateful I didn't leave them to die.
Although in shock with their senses numb
They all bought copies of my debut album.
"Did any suspect you'd caused the accident?
Even if they did you would never repent”

You're number one...

I next had to blackmail certain DJs
Which was easy when I learnt their dodgy dealing ways.
Using radio promo and a TV show
I could convert to fans each and every foe.

Number one with a bullet at the top of the chart.
The things we have to do for the sake of our art.
"Was it worth it to promote your sound
When you're six feet under the moral high ground?•

You're number one....
