They were saying that I was done.

One last shot of the gun.

Felt like I couldn't have fun without hurting someone.

But life is art and art, to me, music, music, to me, love -

And homespun wisdom weaves through friction and heals transgression -

And I am on the prodigal son.

I am the prodigal son.

I am the prodigal son.

I am the prodigal son.

I am the prodigal son -

And love is, love is, love is, love is, love is, love is always just around the corner.

So to all of you who said I was mad, one last wave of the hand.

Your villainous face on the glass at the airport.

And I say 'Farewell, flakes, I'll always love you beyond your mistakes"

And of those of you who want to have fun,

I'll see you in Islington.

I'll see you in Islington. 

I'll see you in Islington.

I'll see you in Islington.
