Biffy Clyro

"The Modern Leper"

[Verse 1]
A cripple walks amongst you
All you tired human beings
He's got all the things a cripple has not
Two working arms and legs

[Verse 2]
And vital parts fall from his system
And dissolve in Scottish rain
But vitally, he doesn't miss them
He's too f*cked up to care

[Chorus]
Is that you in front of me?
Coming back for even more of exactly the same
You must be a masochist
To love a modern leper on his last leg, on his last leg

[Verse 3]
I've crippled your heart a hundred times
And still can't work out why
You see, I've got this disease
That I can't shake and I'm just rattling through life

[Verse 4]
Well, this is how we do things now
Yeah, this is how the modern stay scared
So I cut out all the good stuff
Yeah, I cut off my foot to spite my leg

[Chorus]
Well, is that you in front of me
Coming back for even more of exactly the same?
You must be a masochist
To love a modern leper on his last leg
Well, I am ill but I'm not dead
And I don't know which of those I prefer
Because that limb which I have lost
Well, it was the only thing holding me up, holding me up

[Bridge]
Well, I'm lying on the ground now
And you're walking through the only door
Well, I have lost my eyesight like I said I would
But I still know

[Outro]
That that is you in front of me
And you're back for even more of exactly the same
Well are you a masochist?
To love a modern leper on his last leg
And you're not ill and I'm not dead
And doesn't that make us the perfect pair?
Just you and me, we'll start again
And you can tell me all about what you did today
What you did today
