So, you're out on a limb but you're feeling so grand
As the rulers of this country take you by the hand
Cause you're safe in the knowledge you got somewhere to go
But you're nerves gonna crack and it's starting to show
Now the wife's gone and left you and the kids have left home
Your job's in the balance and the mortgage has grown
The car's repossessed so you're back on the bus
Is it all happening, is it worth all the fuss?
It's all as plain as could be
If only you could see
Take your face from the pillow and breathe
Is this the life that you've wieved?
