Lyrics: The Fun Powder Plot

When we turn up in our turn up’s, our hearts are heavy,
our heads are ready to levy.

For the yippee-less swing, for the tot-less cot, for the mock,
for the shock, for the fun powder plot.

With courage and conviction, in donkey-jaw diction,
we cry for the cause because the courts have left us lonely;
disowned us daddies like the poopers of the party.

Gently, gently take them from me… gently, gently take them from me…
gently, gently take them from me, and I’ll be left dumfound as a donkey.

This is a booty call; my boot up your arse hole. This is a Freudian slip; my slipper in your bits.

"Serving as much as a statement of intent as a cracking album-opener, Wild Beasts’ The Fun Powder Plot is the sound of a band confidently lurching towards ’semi political critique’. As the twisting guitar melodies swirl about you, it is Hayden Thorpe’s aching falsetto (ish) vocal performance that grabs you and doesn’t let go. Not only does it not let it go, you’ll find yourself singing “my boot, my boot, up your asshole” for days – aptly demonstrating the bands new found ability to match whimsy with weight – the song is named after the Fathers 4 Justice parliament protest."
