O.Children – “Ruins”

Valentine, there’s no-one left to part from you and I,
Bandits from the East have squeezed us dry,
And if we should be calm before we lay,
We’ll thank our lucky stars for yesterday.

Killin’ time, cruising round the ruins in the sun,
Seething blood embezzled by this gun,
Don’t dare make a peep before they go,
Not a shiver, from head to toe.

Stick with me,
Go mad here,
Don’t be scared,
I’m here.

Out of the shadows, I’m cutting and screaming,
Protecting your honour, with a shot in my hand,
A number knife gun, I’m cutting and kicking,
The sand of the desert, the eyes of the dammed,
I’ve got nothing to say, I feel fine I’m okay,
I don’t have nothing to say, i feel fine i’m ok.
You gotta run, run, run, run, run,
Don’t let them be crying, with the blood in my hands.

Valentine, the ruins are no place for you to play.
They’ll kill you if you come back here again,
The ruins are no place for you to play,
They’ll kill you if you come back here again,
Save yourself and run down to the sea,
Find a place to lay and wait for me,
The ruins are no place for you to play.
They’ll kill you if you come back here again.

They’ll kill you if you come back again.

Os O. Children vieram de Londres e têm Tobi O’Kandi à cabeça (voz), com Andi Sleath (bateria), Gauthier Ajarrista (guitarra) e Harry James (baixo). O nome foi retirado de um tema de Nick Cave depois de O’Kandi e Sleath terem sido alvos de um processo judicial, pelo controverso projecto musical Bono Must Die, movido pelo próprio Bono. Esta nova fisionomia chegou em 2008.
