Long Way Down

Track 5 from the album Stigmata Playing Up Again.

Lying in your malformed body
Growing like plant life, see in black and white
Being very proud of nothing
That was a good idea for a story
Nothing makes me laugh like you do
So I just sit here, laughing at nothing
Finally you're winning something
Now it's all over, smile for the camera
You should be careful what you say
Don't want your kids to run away
It's a long way down
You're not around when it begins
There's never time to fill you in
It's a long way down
Happy since you gave up washing
Meeting some friends around the old building
Eating what you find in Tesco
You've got expensive tastes for a soldier
Wanting life to get exciting
Cleaning the chimneys of famous people
Book ourselves a week at Butlins
Killing two birds with one stone
