lyrics

Far away from life’s illusion
Stand up straight don’t take the cure
It’s a forty stop solution
Might make you feel unsure

This is a street life
Anything you want to see
Anything you wish to know
See a ruby as it glistens in the snow
Pick it up, a little blood you will know

Don’t shoot the messenger
He’s come so far, he’s hurting, he’s in pain
He’s fleet of foot, he’s good at begging
Living well beyond his means
Carries a knife inside his jeans

A rocking boat, a feather boa
Of itching teeth and shaking hand
I feel my ageing knees will buckle
As the violence flows
From my unprotected hand
