about

Words and music by Peter Marley

lyrics

i’m the last man standing for the crowd
blood and bodies everywhere around
the emperor is weighing choices, he hears the cruellest voices
drops his thumb to grind me to the ground

well it’s alright, yeah it’s alright
i’d gladly gladiate again for you

flying back from space so deep and dark
aliens and sun-storms dog my course
will you want this travelled soul a thousand light years old
but thanks to einstein younger than i was?

well it’s alright, yeah it’s alright
i named a dozen planets after you

well it’s alright, yeah it’s alright
i’d crash into that meteor for you

my last trick is diving in this pool
to fetch a statue of you way way down
big shoes stop me swimming back up, my breath is leaving my lungs
everyone just laughs: a drowning clown

well it’s alright, it’s alright
i stole the circus for you for a while

well it’s alright, oh yeah it’s alright
the elephants and tigers have you now
