There's a glimmer on the highway
It goes its way I go my way
There's no golden setting sun
Coming free for anyone
I don't mean to take it lightly
Can't help thinking on it nightly
But all that I can seem to do
Is see the darker side of you
I wish I'd time to be distracted
Maybe change the way I acted
Don't ask me how it came to this
Or what my sense of knowing is

Down the track with sergeant franco
Our one doesn't even rank
Though I've got money on the win
I've got no winners coming in
You said you were lead it'll be alright
You're only lonely it'll be alright
You're slow to show but it'll be alright
I used to move right through you it'll be alright
You dressed to test but it'll be alright
Tear your wits to bits but it'll be alright it'll be alright

There's a girl she's on the run
Who knows what she's running from
On the lam from speaking ghosts
On the lam from what she hates the most
It's a wonder that she is not crying
It's a wonder she's not dying
And I wonder why I care
Care enough that I put it there

You said you were lead it'll be alright
You're only lonely it'll be alright
You're slow to show but it'll be alright
I used to move right through you it'll be alright
You dressed to test but it'll be alright
Tear your wits to bits but it'll be alright it'll be alright
Now for something else completely
You are never gonna reach me
You're a slave to British boys
British boys who make British noise
So don't act like you're above me
Stop pretending that you love me
You've got nothing on me son
And I've got the smoking gun
