I use to think that I was lonely
When I was a young boy
Doing what they told me
(Living rather coldly)
Too many lessons in the school class
Stated my allegiance
Mixing with the wrong class
I lived at home with all my family
Even had my own key
It was given to me
(Parents listened to me)
Allowed to be alone
(Then left me alone)
There was never any friction
Starring in my own film
(A starring role in my film)
It was my addiction
(It was science fiction)
You don't have to wait
The world will carry on
It's there in your face
But it won't stay for long
Let's be a nation
And sit upon a throne
Don't ever hesitate
Just carry on
The older boys were rather surly
Living in the wrong place
Made me grow up early
But it was my home
As I complete my own existence
Staring at my own life
(I look at the old one)
Fading in the distance
Down a semitone
Smiling faces of the neighbors
Proud of their endeavors
Unemployed forever watch TV at home
You don't have to wait
The world will carry on
It's there in your face
But it won't stay for long
Let's be a nation
And sit upon a throne
Don't ever hesitate
Just carry on
