Kinks – Predictable lyrics

Don't know why I'm even bothering.
Yeah, that's the mood I'm in.
Go out for a walk then I come back in.
Yeah, the mood that I'm in.
Every day of my life
Can't even communicate with my wife
That's the word of the year
All I see, all I hear.

Go to my office, sit at my desk,
Predictably just like all of the rest.
I sit and I dream about far away places,
Away from the people with frowns on their faces.

Once we (once we) had dignity and grace
Now we (now we) have got nothing but our own time to waste.

Yeah, that's the word of the year
All I see, all I hear
Why can't it be like never before?
Yeah, ain't life a bore
Life gets more and more...
Just like I've heard it all somewhere before.
Sure as the nose on my face
Same for the whole human race

One day (one day) it's gonna get better some way (some way)
I wish it would get worse any way (any way)
What can I lose, it might turn into something better.

It gets harder and harder the harder I try
Feels like a good time to die
I kiss you hello then I kiss you good-bye
Just like the stain on my tie
Just like the jacket I wear
The way that I'm combing my h
