LYRICS
I met Tommy boy
He was out on a trial
He hollered out:
‘Lemme get you a drink’
He ruled with joy
His pain empire
I drank it down
And let it sink

He pulled me in
It was really quite frightening
Through troubled water
I could not see

Blow up, blow out
Hand me your lighter
Grow up, shout out
Got a tattoo
Blow up, blow out
I’ll be a fighter
For you won’t let me down

I got up and took a walk on you

I drank it down
Swallowed me whole

A king of pain
Triumphantly
He ruled with joy
His pain empire
I let him reign
Pour down on me

Blow up, blow out
Hand me your lighter
Grow up, shout out
Got a tattoo
Blow up, blow out
I’ll be a fighter
For you won’t let me down

And I, I’m doing quite alright
Most everything is fine
Not suicidal, you’re right
I used to be

Blow up, blow out
Hand me your lighter
Grow up, shout out
Got a tattoo
Blow up, blow out
I’ll be a fighter
For you won’t let me down

And I, I’m doing quite alright
Most everything is fine
Not suicidal, you’re right
I used to be

I got up and took a walk on you
