Garbage - Blood For Poppies lyrics

Alternative rock band Garbage, led by the flawless, Scottish singer Shirley Manson, return to the music scene in 2012, seven years after their post-'Bleed Like Me' hiatus! The group have picked the amazing track "Blood For Poppies" as the first single from their fifth album "Not Your Kind of People", due in mid-May 2012 via Garbage's STUNVOLUME record label and Liberator Music. This is too good! Just close your eyes, and it feels like we're in the '90s again! Garbage haven't lost their 'touch' as "Blood For Poppies" features high doses of grungy guitars and an instantly-catchy hook.


Salute the sun I've been sitting here all night long
Hauling rock over Buddha with the Longhorn
I got a hole so rip a pocket off my uniform
With the Blackwatch Boys gets your heads down
Duty calls but it is way too late I'm too far gone
Waiting for Godot hell with my pants down
Cracked the stash sent me crying in the midday sun
I miss my dog and I miss my freedom

I don't know why they are calling on the radio
They know I'm here just out of sight
I don't know why they're calling on the radio
He's by my side and I know I'm right

I hate the things I think about you when I'm all alone
I know you're tough but I've been gone for so long
I play the memories of you inside my head
So all those pictures of us burn and radiate
Watch the clouds and I'm falling, falling through the cracks
Head beats and the heart is pounding fast
Off the ground into the starry dark
Into your arms I'm falling
I'm falling I'm falling


I don't know why they are calling on the radio
They know I'm here just out of sight
I don't know why they're calling on the radio
He's by my side and I know I'm right

My brain my body's fried
I've got to stay alive
I've got to take a chance and keep on moving

I don't know why they are calling on the radio
They know I'm here just out of sight
I don't know why they're calling on the radio
He's by my side and I know I'm right

I see your light from miles away
I see your light from miles away
I see your light from miles away
