Lately I have realised
That I need to simplify
Thoughts pass like ships in the sky
Do, or do not, there is no try

Chorus:
Life became complicated
When modern times arrived
Board games are underrated
I want a different life
They say, well get out of the city
We say, well there's no such thing
As a house in the country (in the country)

I am trying to rectify
Habits that clog up my mind
No time to be meek and mild
Live simply like a child

(chorus repeat)

Simplify, your life
Simplify, life

Used to be a major scale
But the melody went stale
Musical cacophony let
Eensy Weensy spider free
You're a rich little boy
Who's had to work for his toys
You've got all the sensibilities
Of an upper class guy

No I'm not your little slave
No I don't twist and turn that way
Only got bad things to say
You're always asking what is up with me

Could never tell you what happened
The day I turned seventeen
The rise of a king and the fall of a queen
Seventeen, seventeen

Oh, you are embarrassed of me
Cos I use my tongue freely
Bet you wish I couldn't speak
Cos when I do, you know
I tell you why you're being weak
You want a hassle free life
Go get your upper class wife
Oh, she's got all the personality
Of a lemon that has been
Truly sucked dry

You teach me how to behave
I felt you question the way
I was brought up as a baby
Well you don't know fuck about my family

Could never tell you what happened
The day I turned seventeen
The rise of a king and the fall of a queen
Seventeen, seventeen

Never fell down like a princess
I used to kid myself in this stress
That it was just how things
Were meant to be
Oh, seventeen,
Seventeen
 

I can’t break the cycle
Am I just a fool?
Falling down like dominos
Hit by family jewels
Pass it down from kid to kid
The chain will never end
Unless I decide to go to it
Will I see the end?
Oh, don’t you find it strange?
Only thing we share is one last name
Did I beat you at your own game?
Typical of me to put us all to shame


Welcome to the family jewels
Coal to diamonds, sold to fools
Welcome to the family jewels
Simmer and suffer, can’t keep his cool
I can’t keep my cool
I can’t keep my cool


Family said that I decided
To live a loveless life
Is it my fault we stay divided
‘Cause I’ve got too much pride
Pass the parcel, wrap unwrap
And open up the locks
Out come flying all the secrets
Of Pandora’s Box
Oh you think I’m unfit
Little did you know that I was cut for it
No glass slipper will ever fit
‘Cause I could never see a diamond in it


Welcome to the family jewels
Coal to diamonds, sold to fools
Welcome to the family jewels
Simmer and suffer, can’t keep his cool
I can’t keep my cool
I can’t keep my cool


And when we’re in the dark
It echos in your heart
And when you’re far away
It becons me to stay
And when we’re in the dark
It echos in your heart
And when you’re far away
It becons me to stay


Welcome to the family jewels
Coal to diamonds, sold to fools
Welcome to the family jewels
Simmer and suffer, can’t keep his cool


Welcome to the family jewels
Coal to diamonds, sold to fools
Welcome to the family jewels
Simmer and suffer, can’t keep his cool
I can’t keep my cool
I can’t keep my cool

I was dreaming something dark
Hiding body parts
A broken dog, a broken leg
I left it cold, I left it dead
Oh I’m a guilty one
And know what I have done
Yeah, I’m a troubled one
And I won’t be forgiven


Guilty on the run
And I know what I have done
Guilty on the run
And I’m never forgiven
I was just a kid
That you could not forgive because it’s harder
I was just a kid and all I really wanted was my father


I killed a dog so small and rare
Touched his technicolour hair
I left it bruised and black and lame
I left it running full of shame
Oh I’m a guilty one
And know what I have done
Yeah, I’m a troubled one
And I won’t be forgiven


Guilty on the run
And I know what I have done
Guilty on the run
And I’m never forgiven
I was just a kid
That you could not forgive
Because it’s harder
I was just a kid
And all I really wanted was my father


Spent years singing to forget
Spent years singing “no regret”
Then suddenly it all becomes clear
I’ve been sorry all these years


I was just a kid
That you could not forgive
Because it’s harder
I was just a kid
And all I really wanted was my father
Guilty on the run
And I know what I have done
Guilty on the run
And I’m never forgiven
Guilty on the run
And I know what I have done
Guilty on the run
And I’m never forgiven
