This world is hard and no one gives a shit
To help anyone or give them their just pay.
There is no hand out and they take more than they give.
And you find you're going crazier each day.

And the one you love, you are torturing.
'Cause all that fucking pressure leaves a whipping sting.
And you will know, when you've nowhere else to go,
That you've got to turn to something that is enlightening.

I am going town, going down to Leopardstown.
When the horses run a flat, for I'm flat broke. I'm going down
Where the wine and whiskey flow. Leave the ladies all aglow.
Back to wander Francis Street in the morning.

I've just got to be strong, 'cause it's lasted so long,
That the sadness now that has me in its grip.
I'm completely worn, of thinking I have to conform
And I have to give the stale life the slip.

But I love you that's why it's so hard to leave,
But I know I have to be strong, 'cause it's lasted so long,
To create a new dynamic of our lives,
To try to cut the pain and strife.
Don't give up on me, for I won't always be gone.
