(Lawrence Gowan)
There you sit
Staring at the dead screen
And it's sad
Life ain't like your daydream
Every rat, gets an easy pigeon
Every snake, somehow works a way in
It's hard enough to sleep at night
Darlin' so you've been kicked inside
You're not the first one
Missing a pound of pride
You'll see worse than me
In your day
Sooner or later
Everyone's heard to say that all in all
It's a great dirty world
Never safe
You're at the disadvantage
Then you start
To hear the subtle message:
Play along - in time they're going to reach you
Play it down - eventually they beat you
It's hard enough to sleep at night
Darlin' so you've been kicked inside
You're not the first one
Missing a pound of pride
You'll see worse than me
In your day
Sooner or later
Everyone's heard to say that all in all
It's a great dirty world
Everyone's cut by this knife
Don't expect nothing from life
But everything we've got to give
Give it all
Give it all
Give it all
It's hard enough to sleep at night
Darlin' so you've been kicked inside
You're not the first one
Missing a pound of pride
You'll see worse than me
In your day
Sooner or later
Everyone's heard to say that all in all
It's a great dirty world
Darlin' so you've been kicked inside
You're not the first one
Missing a pound of pride
You'll see worse than me
In your day
Sooner or later
Everyone's heard to say that all in all
It's a great dirty world
Darlin' so you've been kicked inside
You're not the first one
Missing a pound of pride
You'll see worse than me
In your day
Sooner or later
Everyone's heard to say that all in all
It's a great dirty world
Darlin' so you've been kicked inside
You're not the first one
Missing a pound of pride
You'll see worse than me
In your day
Sooner or later
Everyone's heard to say that all in all
It's a great dirty world
