"Toerag" as written by Luke Crowther, Joel Stoker, Grant Marsh and Robert Pyne....
Walk out of the door and make my way up the street
Cold wind in my eyes, runs a tear down my cheek
Not a soul to be heard, so no point to complain
At least the sound of the birds compensates for the rain

Hit the queue for the bus and then I join the line
Same faces for the last ten years of my life
See them more than my friends; I couldn't tell you their names
Shattered glass on the floor, the kids have run out of games

And I don't see that's ever gonna change

One hour passes 'till I'm back on my feet
' A stone's throw I will be walking, 'till I'm off the street
Hang my coat to dry; settle down with the herd
Some I really don't mind; some just get on my nerves

Turn my back to the clock because it slows the time
Take out a cigarette and hear the match strike
Turn the radio on to drown the sound of the rain
' Same bands, same songs play again and again

And I don't see that's ever gonna change

Tell me I'm not right; say what you like; I'm miles away
And expect nothing changing except for the name of the day

And I don't see that's ever gonna change
And I don't see that's ever gonna change

From my place of work I move away in haste
Time there moves slow but rushes when I'm away
Pass a girl from my school; the conversation's brief
Gotta catch that train; get myself some relief

I meet up with friends and they knock off at six
I pull at five and walk about for a bit
Watch the world go by through an empty glass
And I know that won't be the last, so...

Tell me I'm not right; say what you like I'm miles away
And expect nothing changing except for the name of the day

But I don't see that's ever gonna change
But I don't see that's ever gonna change
But I don't see that's ever gonna change
But I don't see that's ever gonna change

Creep back into bed and then I pull up the sheet
High over my head and uncover my feet
'Till the room goes dark and I'm miles away
Jump to the alarm and start another day
