Howard Lawrence – Miles Away lyrics

Give yourself a glimpse of the new world order
Come in then lock the gates
I'm the fat cat in charge
Who lets the inmates date the guards
You're gonna run em out when it's too late

Cover your eyes…...
This may not be a pleasant thing to watch
Never thought I'd find religion here
But got hooked on single malt Scotch

How do we survive?
We haven't found the secret yet
Chasing friends online is all we know
And to really get creative we beat ourselves senseless
Why don't we just pack our bags and go?

Gotta get to the airport
22 miles to catch that plane
If the shadow jumps that wall again
I might just go insane
The end of what I love is near
Who can fly this bird with broken wings?
Across the pond they're betting against
The next savant that we crowned king

Dark circles frame his eyes
Uploads the database that tracks his known failures
When friends arrive he polishes his act
The change is subtle——otherwise he cracks
He swears he's safe but shrinks from reality
Why won't he expose his self-loathing malady?

We're running in place here
Wasting all these gifts to make ends meet
No wonder we're lost
This brilliant master plan was never even our idea
But we subsidize it's cost

You can bring your dog to see me
But don't expect to rid him of his fleas
We buff the patient's chart here
His treatment just might trigger a new disease

What passes here for breaking news
Just teaches kids to hate our views
Whaddawe expect them to do?
Hurry up already
We're tryin to hold steady
The more they fear the less we beg
So let's just blow the powder keg

Gotta get to the airport
22 miles to catch that plane
If the shadow creeps outside again
We'll all end up insane

The noise is growing louder now
She can't maneuver in reverse
The rocks are bubbling underground
Pick up the phone and call the head nurse please!
