Hi! I've requested this transcription:
https://lyricstranslate.com/en/bad-flamingo-mama-raised-you-right-lyrics...
But then I decided to give it a chance and write the lyrics myself. Heh, the lyrics still sound like a puzzle to me.

Rust got in the weed
I saw their faces changed
???
Watching they do ?
If and when it hurts
Was some whiskey on ??
???
And don't matter ???

Bloody fists and broken jaws still ??? see the light
Your mama raised x3
Your mama raised you right
You will start a war just for some peace of mind
Your mama raised x3
Your mama raised you right

And while talked about ???
To the ???
Because it turned with a dusty wind
And you slash the tires of the getaway???
Because we ain't ???
We ain't ???

Bloody fists and broken jaws still ??? see the light
Your mama raised x3
Your mama raised you right
When you come in you start a war just for some peace of mind
Your mama raised x3
Your mama raised you right

If our ???
That were only strangers in the end ?
'Cause we picked the loneliness side x2
Feather ???
???
'Cause we picked the loneliness side x2

Bloody fists and broken jaws still ??? see the light
Your mama raised x3
Your mama raised you right
You will start a war just for some peace of mind
Your mama raised x3
Your mama raised you right

Hi Till!

Damn, cool song but a damn hard one to understand.
Here's what I've got so far:

Rust got in the wind,
I saw their faces changing in the bar,
watching the dough.

?
?
?

Bloody fists and broken jaws,
still they see the light.
Your mama raised you,
mama raised you,
mama raised you right.

You would start a war
just for some peace of mind.
Your mama raised you,
mama raised you,
mama raised you right.

?
?
?

Then you slashed the tires
of a getaway Mustang
because we ain't, we ain't ???

Bloody fists and broken jaws,
still they see the light.
Your mama raised you,
mama raised you,
mama raised you right.

When you come in, you start a war
just for some peace of mind.
Your mama raised you,
mama raised you,
mama raised you right.

We bow our heads
?
?
'cause we picked the loneliest side.
'Cause we picked the loneliest side.

Fare thee well to the departed
?
?
'cause we picked the loneliest side.
'Cause we picked the loneliest side.

Bloody fists and broken jaws,
still they see the light.
Your mama raised you,
mama raised you,
mama raised you right.

You would start a war
just for some peace of mind.
Your mama raised you,
mama raised you,
mama raised you right.

Your mama raised you,
mama raised you,
mama raised you right.

Let's see what others come up with. I've noticed the official channel for this group does include the lyrics in their videos' description, but they haven't officially uploaded this track for some reason.

Rust got in the wind
I saw that face has changed
Sittin' in the bar
Watchin' the dirt

If and when it hurts
Pour some whisky on 'n' in
Of where it hurts
And the Matador

Bloody fists and broken jaws till they see the light
Your mama raised you, mama raised you, mama raised you right
You would start a war just for some peace o' mind
Your mama raised you, mama raised you, mama raised you right

And I
Took a bat to the weather vane
Because in ten
We could dust your end

And you
Slashed the tyres of the getaway Mustang
Because in the end
We ain't grown men

Bloody fists and broken jaws till they see the light
Your mama raised you, mama raised you, mama raised you right
When you come in you start a war just for some peace o' mind
Your mama raised you, mama raised you, mama raised you right

If I were his
And one of you his friends
They were only strangers in the end
'Cause we picked the loneliest side
'Cause we picked the loneliest side

Fare-thee-well
To the departed
Have left me a full even back-scarring
'Cause we picked the loneliest side
'Cause we picked the loneliest side

Bloody fists and broken jaws till they see the light
Your mama raised you, mama raised you, mama raised you right
You would start a war just for some peace o' mind
Your mama raised you, mama raised you, mama raised you right

Your mama raised you, mama raised you, mama raised you right

Thank you! Yeah, the song is pretty new, mb Bad Flamingo will upload an official video and we'll get original lyrics but I think flattenedpotato did an amazing job.

Jeez I saw that line 'Fare-thee-well To the departed' in some review and forget about it, damn.
