Spock's Beard – The Great Nothing: V: Missed Your Calling lyrics

See the writing on the wall
Once the man who had it all
You threw it all away, look around and nothing's left
You've got nothing to forget
No golden yesterday

'Cause you missed your calling
You could have lived up in the sky
You missed your calling every time

Watch the lady throw the rune
Have her come up to your room
She comes from Montreal
There's no limelight only line
And Tequila's made you blind
It's time to lose it all

'Cause you missed your calling
You could have lived up in the sky
You missed your calling one more time

The boy has got potential
But he'll never have commercial success
We gave him good direction
But he always thought that he knew what's best
We tried to set him straight
His calls will have to wait
We tried to change his future fate
But now it's too late

Something keeps telling quiet now, quiet now - quiet now
Mother says quiet down, quiet down - quiet down.........
