      About "Tattoos"

      Lyrics for Frank Turner - "Tattoos"

      Oh it's payday, yes it's payday
      I got my pay check from the man
      There's not so many jobs that I can get these days
      With these marks all over my hands
      But I'm gonna take that check
      I'm gonna head across the track
      To the wrong side of this town

      I'm gonna open the door
      I'm gonna bask in the roar
      Of that familiar buzzing needle sound

      Because the ink in my skin
      Where the needle went in
      However many years ago
      Has left marks on my arms
      And they say who I am
      Everywhere that I go

      Some people have one and
      Some have one that they're ashamed of
      Most people think that we're fools
      Some people don't get it and
      Some people don't care
      And some of us we have tattoos

      Oh it's fading, yes it's fading
      Some of the things that I believed back then
      Yes my skin has started sagging and
      The ink has started running
      And I've got buddy tattoos with people
      Who aren't friends
      Oh I've even got black X's from when I was straight edge
      So crack open a beer friends now
      And let's make a pledge

      If we had the luck to live our lives
      A second time through we'd be sure to get the same tattoos

      Because the ink in my skin
      Where the needle went in
      However many years ago
      Has left marks on my arms
      And they say who I am
      Everywhere that I go

      Some people have one and
      Some have one that they're ashamed of
      Most people think that we're fools
      Some people don't get it and
      Some people don't care
      And some of us we have tattoos

      We've got hearts for the lovers
      And playing cards for the gamblers
      Black flag bars for the punks
      And sailing ships for the ramblers
      We got skulls for the living

      And the pain pays our dues
      And some of us we have tattoos
