A night in television wonderland
Just one more
Fairytale about some rich bitch
Lying by the swimming pool
Its golden school
Living's easy when you make the rules

Last friday was the first time
It took only about half a minute
On the stairway
It was child's play
The odds turn out even
When you give up believing in the

Chorus
Cold law steel claw
Try to get on board you find the lock is on the door
Well I say 'no way
Don't try to keep me out or there'll be hell to pay'
I don't know who's right or who's wrong
But it doesn't really matter when you're lying in the gutter
Its a see saw
A long hot battle with the cold law
Is what you get for messing with the steel claw

The politicians have forgotten this place
Except for a flying visit in a black mercedes
No election time
They cross the line
And everybody runs to watch the pantomine
If they could see what's going on around here
So many people hanging on the edge
Crying out for revolution
Retribution
The odds turn out even
When you give up believing in the
Repeat chorus

Sometimes I think I'm going crazy
Sometimes I do a line
Makes me laugh
Makes me want to take a joyride
On the high tide
Sometimes I'm contemplating suicide
Meanwhile eddy's on the west coast
He's making out with some sweet senorita
Up in frisco you and I know
The odds turn out even
When you give up believing
Repeat chorus
