Waking up as the sun goes down
Body all in pain
Straight out the door to the worst part of town
Shooting up in vain

Slips all his money to the man
Here we go again, here we go again
Got bags of mercy in the palm of his hand
Shooting up in vain

And so he heads for the closest roof top
And now he's free with the skyline behind
But it won't be long until his high will drop
And then you know what he'll try to find

Such a shame

Now he's back on that hunt for more
Body all in pain
Wanting to get back to where he was before
Shooting up in vain

So now he goes and sells his wedding ring
Here we go again, here we go again
But now he's sold exactly everything
Shooting up in vain

And so he heads for the closest roof top
And now he's free with the skyline behind
But it won't be long until his high will drop
Then you know what he'll try to find

Shooting up in vain
Such a shame
Such a shame

Down to bed as the sun goes up
Body all in pain
Now the swears he's going to stop
Shooting up in vain

He's doctor Jekyll and he's mr Hyde
He's got to listen to that voice deep inside
Got a one way ticket on a derailed train
Got a one way ticket on a derailed train

Shooting up in vain
Such a shame
Such a shame

Got a one way ticket on a derailed train
Go to stop shooting up in vain
Got a one way ticket on a derailed train

Got a one way ticket on a derailed train
Go to stop shooting up in vain
Got a one way ticket on a derailed train

Got a one way ticket on a derailed train
Go to stop shooting up in vain
Got a one way ticket on a derailed train

Got a one way ticket on a derailed train
Go to stop shooting up in vain
Got a one way ticket on a derailed train
