Lyrics for Weird Leisure by Biffy Clyro:

Pre-Chorus
Where's everybody going?
Is it around to the pleasure house?
We're fighting an ugly war
And it's no good to freak out

Chorus
Oh please, it's obscene
I've seen your true colors and there's nothing underneath, only green
I stared at the pictures of canyons open between

Post-Chorus
When I caught your eye, I glimpsed a black star
Going on and on, you're not looking civilized

Verse 1
You're busted into pieces
You've polished off your cocaine
Your face is fucking numb
I can see the fear in your heart
Look out the window
See what you could've had
And I could be, I could be the
Best friend you ever had

Pre-Chorus
Where's everybody gone?
They've all abandoned my house
Nobody comes and goes
But it's not good to freak out

Chorus
Oh please, it's obscene
You focus on others and just pick apart their dreams
It's fucking mean
I stare at the stitch and there's nothing on underneath

Post-Chorus
When I caught your eye, I glimpsed a black star
Going on and on, it's a shame to be civilized

Verse 2
You're picking up the pieces
You're stepping off the ghost train
You could've been the one
I've got no more fear in my heart
Look out the window
See what you're gonna have
And I will be, I will be the
Best friend you've ever had

Guitar Solo

Bridge
Weird leisure comes, when all pleasure goes
Weird leisure comes, when all pleasure goes

Weird leisure comes, when all pleasure goes
Weird leisure comes, when all pleasure goes

Verse 3
You picked up all the pieces
And started your life again
You're my number one
I love, only hope in my heart
We're at the window
Surveying all we have
And I believe, I believe that
It's my turn, don't hold me back

Guitar Solo

Outro
It's my turn, don't hold me back
It's my turn, don't hold me back
It's my turn, don't hold me back

Song Facts

Weird Leisure is the fourth single of the upcoming album ‘A Celebration of Endings’.

Simon Neil talked in an NME interview about the track: “That’s a song about one of my oldest friends. He just chose the wrong path and got himself into a really tricky situation where his world closed in. He’d want help and you’d try to help, but then a week later you’re back to square one. Fortunately he’s in a good place now and on his way out of the darkness. I love this guy so much, but – fucking hell – he’s put me through some shit.”
