I had a fistful of nothing, then the penny dropped
One for my troubles, from the very top
What I wouldn't give
Wise men in bubbles, my to make it pop
The hot getting hotter, isn't easy is it
What I wouldn't give

Sons killing brothers, seems a little twisted
Air by the bottle, now you get the picture
Doesn't matter does it
(Come On)
For the day is long and I just want to live

But the rope that's holding me's about to give
(Come on, come on, come on, come on)
And the truth is nothing more if not a bridge
This is my purpose now to
(Come on, come on, come on, come on)
This is my purpose now to

Shine
Shine
Shine
Shine
A life time of promise, in the pity pool

I have a headful of knowledge, never went to school
A lie if I'm honest, if I'm honest this is
How philosophical, how philosophical of...
Been there I've done it, up against it all
The wars at the bottom, time to heed it's call
So instead they crawl, doesn't matter does it
Though most can't be bothered
(Come on)
For the day is long and I just want to live

But the rope that's holding me's about to give
(Come on, come on, come on, come on)
And the truth is nothing more if not a bridge
(Come on, come on, come on, come on)
This is my purpose now to
This is my purpose now to

Shine
Shine
Shine
Shine

I have seen it all before my friends
Take me out and show me where it ends
Take me out and tell me where it ends
I have heard it all before my friends

Are we closer? The beginnings in your head
Are we closer? The beginnings in your head
Are we closer? The beginnings in your head
Are we closer? The beginnings in your head
Are we closer? The beginnings in your head
Are we closer? The beginnings in your head
Are we closer? The beginnings in your head

Are we closer? The beginnings in your head
For the day is long and I just want to live
But the rope that's holding me's about to give
(Come on, come on, come on, come on)
And the truth is nothing more if not a bridge
(Come on, come on, come on, come on)
This is my purpose now to
This is my purpose now to

Shine
