"Back in the days" in lyrics
Everybody's on diet – nobody eats meat anymore
Nobody has a funnel – all guzzling wine
Back in the days everyone was crocked by thursday
I'm sitting on a sofa, smoking all the stuff on my own
Girls, girls, girls, I have to be fair I do not understand you, no.
Girls girls girls, you wouldn't sit on the back of my bike back in the days, no.
Now look at your boy! With his new clothes on.
Remembering those days what we call the undercover time
We couldn't make a link we couldn't say see you another time
Back in the days when I wish you were mine
And I would have been in custody if loving was a crime
For a passing while, would that bring back the rush of danger
which twisted our stomachs
back in the days
when we painted our eyes with black,<fn>“Painted our eyes with black” is both a reference to the schoolyard “rebels” or outcasts using strong or unconventional makeup, such as black eyeliner (think of glam rockers, punk rockers, goths/emos and such), and a more specific reference to Stanley Kubrick’s classic film (an adaptation of Anthony Burgess’ dystopian novel) <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Clockwork_Orange_%28film%29"><em>A Clockwork Orange</em></a>, where the main characters are acting in a very rebellious and anti-social way and wear a very specific kind of black eye makeup. The official music video, once again, features a recognizable image of the eyes of “Alex”, the main character of the novel/film.</fn>
of bloody course you get paranoid when the heads walk around dressed like Remmington Steele
(It) takes you back, back in the days, Norrmalmstorg, Maynard Keynes.
Walks in with a gun in Manhattan Chase, was gonna make a withdrawal, say excuse me
Nephilim bury em with the bullets left in em
My heart is blacker than the children of Thomas Jefferson
Blacker than back in the days of the tar and feathering
The cancerous endocrine, the ego that’s American
Back in the days we'd always hang out at the centre of the city
Nothing to do, but always fire happening
Cause suburban life was a private party and
Pull a girl, let loose and on to the next one
You know how we do when me and my crew bang,
been rapping this kid, since he was down with Wu-Tang.
Back in the days, into the chamber 36,
Big Tig' putting it down in dirty mix, provided by EQ,
i understand. Up to now I still can't forget you.
Inside a distant memory, It seems like time was taken away.
If I could change, i wanna back in the days
The love that came passed us by.
