Take a walk, look don’t talk
Take your life in your own hands
Kicking a** on the grass (for what)
Just for a couple of dimes

It goes tick tock, tick tock, tick tock (oh)
Cos they’re mixed up, pumped up, drugged up (oh)

[Chorus:]
We can't take it we just can't take
Can't blame it on the sign of the times
No hand shake just heartbreak
It's just another man shot in the back
Shot in the back, shot in the back

Can't you see what you’ve got
You’ve got your lives in your back pockets
No second chance dreams of the past
It’s just a crazy life sleeping in pain

It goes tick tock, tick tock, tick tock (oh)
Cos they’re mixed up, pumped up, drugged up (oh)

[Chorus:]
We can't take it we just can't take
Can't blame it on the sign of the times
No hand shake just heartbreak
It's just another man shot in the back
Shot in the back, shot in the back
