Spleen United – Failure 1977 lyrics

You put your right hand on your left hand shoulder
You're crossing the crowd and facing the ground
You're never going to join their godless order
You find the magic in sports because the meaning is lost

Remember when you had the power,
The power to move from one place into another, another yeah
But now you always come up shorter and shorter
You find the magic in sports because the meaning is lost

The failure ain't the going
It's the staying down
It's the staying down

Remember when you had the will, had the will to go on
But now your body is old and your will is gone
Remember when you had the power,
The power to move it from one place into another and another one

Don't you miss the fever and the wild, wild things you did to yourself?
Oh what you did not to do it
Don't you miss the feeling of the outside coming in?

Strange is the need to show it
To reach it out
To reach it out
And the failure ain't the going
It's the staying down
It's the staying down

The pressure, the pressure
Leads to the high end
Taking you far away
Depression, depression
Takes over heartache
Keeping you warm and safe

Failure ain't the going
It's the staying down
It's the staying down

Failure ain't the going
No, it's the staying down
The staying down
