Crack of dawn, every morn, when you've gone to see your men
On my feet in choking heat, back in bed, start again

Working my hands down to the bone in this town
The weight of the world is dragging me all the way down

Twenty years, big ideas and all I've got to show is this
A dead end life, a drunken wife, and all my friends are taking the piss
Man I'm tired, boy I'm tired, I'm a model citizen
Work until the morning then we go to bed and start again

Working my hands down to the bone in this town
The weight of the world is dragging me all the way down
Where is the girl I was to build my home round?
The weight of the world is dragging me all the way down

It's breaking my heart
It's breaking my heart
It's breaking my heart
It's breaking my heart

It's breaking my heart
It's breaking my heart
It's breaking my heart
It's breaking my heart
