Lyrics

All shades of grey with no end in sight,
so we turn the lock and key and hold the night-light tight.
When it feels just like the sun will never touch this place
and we've spent our lives just counting lines and pulling out greys.
Keep it up, son. Keep it up. You're doin' alright,
it's just a broken heart in a dole queue line.
But you'll never teach an old dog, teach an old dog new tricks.
But you'll watch your grave get deeper with every shovel you dig.
I met an old man on the street the other day,
and he taught be about the right and wrongs of having your way.
He said "You'll never win it if you play life like a game,
if you look straight through a person just for something to gain.
There is no baby born in this life that is better than you, there is no feudal forced
agenda in the womb, it's true.
The cross and crown have left it a little hard to cope.
But you'll never lose sight if you never lose hope."
There are billions of other people in this world and no-one has a clue.
Take these words please don't keep them to yourself,
because these words are all I have to give to you.
We have all been down, that's just the way life is.
We have all worn frowns instead of smiling, kid.
We have all been down, but we'll get up again.
Not all kings wear crowns, at least you have your friends.
Intelligence
seems a solid ground,
but when you try to pin it down
you see that holes are found.
Dumb
just means you missed the point,
or else you're working on a different level.
Never let them tell you that you're thick,
or you're underachieving.
They're the ones who picked the goals,
so don't believe them when they say
"You've let yourself down, let us all down."
Beside my college there's an unemployment office,
there's a nightclub next to a funeral home.
Beside my college there's an unemployment office,
there's a nightclub next to a funeral home.
It's in one door and it's out the other,
well it's in one door and I'm goin' home.
It's in one door and it's out the other,
well it's in one door and I'm goin' home.
There are billions of other people in this world and no-one has a clue.
Take these words please don't keep them to yourself,
because these words are all I have to give to you.
We have all been down, that's just the way life is.
We have all worn frowns instead of smiling, kid.
We have all been down, but we'll get up again.
Not all kings wear crowns, at least you have your friends.
(We have all been down)
(Gotta pick the right one, gotta pick the right one now)
(We have all been down)
(But it's a long way, a long way to the ground)
(We have all been down)
(Gotta pick the right one, gotta pick the right one now)
(We have all been down)
(But it's a long way, a long way to the ground)
