For the girls it's knowledge beyond their years
and a half brass wedding dress
when the babies cry you wipe their tears
forget that lifes a mess

For the boys it's brand new bank accounts
money they can't afford
saving for that first new house
working too hard to be bored

No time to talk
(nothing to say)
don't run don't walk
(all work no play)
silver knife and fork

Find a cure for all their pain
drive all thoughts from out their brains
squeeze them dry and see just what remains
walking in chains

Sleeping late just once a week
a headache every night
trying hard to make ends meet
old clothes feel so tight

Indiscretion from time to time
with a friend from out of town
you close your eyes it's not a crime
it's a shame to turn it down

Nothing to hide
(it's everywhere)
a one way ride
(don't pay the fare)
no sense of pride
(no one to care)

All night buses and empty trains
walking home in the pouring rain
look inside and see just what remains
walking in chains

All night buses and empty trains
walking home in the pouring rain
look inside and see just what remains
you've got me walking in chains
