Marillion – The Rakes Progress lyrics
(music: marillion lyrics: steve hogarth)

What do you do when your roots have dissolved and broken down
And the soil that you grew in when you were small
Has become nothing more than dirt in some dirty town

When you list all the qualities that you despise
And you realize you're describing yourself

And breakin' someone up inside
Is your only source of pride
