All those beautiful boyz

All those beautiful boyz
All those beautiful boyz

Born illegitimately
To a whore most likely
He became an orphan
Oh what a lovely orphan
He was sent to the reformatory
Ten years old was his first glory
Got caught stealing from a nun
Now his love story had begun

Thirty years he spent wandering
A devil's child with dove wings
He went to prison
In every country he set foot in
Oh how he loved prison
How awfully lovely was prison

All those beautiful boyz
Pimps and queens and criminal queers
All those beautiful boyz
Tattoos of ships and tattoos of tears

His greatest love was executed
The pure romance was indisputed
Angelic hoodlums and holy ones
Angelic hoodlums and holy ones

All those beautiful boyz
Pimps and queens and criminal queers
All those beautiful boyz
Tattoos of ships and tattoos of tears

All those beautiful boyz
Pimps and queens and criminal queers
All those beautiful boyz
Tattoos of ships and tattoos of tears

All those beautiful boyz...

Oh, for the sake of momentum
I've allowed my fears to get larger than life
And it's brought me to my current agendum
Whereupon I deny fulfillment has yet to arrive

And I know life is getting shorter

Coldplay

Where do we go nobody knows
I've gotta say I'm on my way, down
God give me style and give me grace
God put a smile upon my face

Where do we go to draw the line
I've gotta say I wasted all your time, honey, honey
Where do I go to fall from grace
God put a smile upon your face.
Yeah

And ah, when you work it out I'm worse than you
Yeah
When you work it out i wanted to
And ah, when you work out where to draw the line
Your guess is as good as mine.

Where do we go nobody knows
Don't ever say you're on your way, down
When God gave you style and gave you grace
And put a smile upon your face
Oh yeah
