"Cut Ups" as written by and John Mcparland Stephen Swindells....
Some of the things that you cannot avoid
You can do what you do, but can't do what you want
You can put all your time, your money, your life
Hope for the best or you can gamble the lot
You can howl at the moon or reach for the stars
Order a death at a nominal cost
Past the point of no return
But then arrive on time, you have to dodge the fare
Peter robs Paul to pay for his course
Of highly inflated pharmaceutical wares
It's a curse to his life, but he knows the risk
If you want to get real then this is it
On the 19th floor, looking down
See the sights, not a soul around
See the sky, learn to fly
Take a jump, let's go for a ride

Something to say, well then say it now
Something to do, well then do it
Lots to gain, lots to face
Lots to prove, so baby

Time is back again
Blind to everything
Take the medicine, come and see
I believe we'll still be here inside a thousand lives or more

Faces, places, nothing ever changes
No one gets remembered for the good that they've done
Finders, keepers, movers, shakers
Breakers, makers, on the top 40 show

Something to say, well then say it now
Something to do, well then do it
Lots to gain, lots to face
Lots to prove, so baby

Time is back again
Blind to everything
Take the medicine, come and see
I believe we'll still be here inside a thousand lives or more

The minute you're born, from the moment you talk
Is the minute you see, then you know what's in store
Jostled, pushed from pillar to post
Volunteering to work on the graveyard shift
Admiring the fools who are robbing you blind
While watching your back, cause they're always behind
What good is a vote if you haven't a voice
If you haven't a voice you've got no choice

Something to say, well then say it now
Something to do, well then do it
Lots to gain, lots to face
Lots to prove, so baby

Time is back again
Blind to everything
Take the medicine, come and see
I believe we'll still be here inside a thousand lives or more

Time is back again
Blind to everything
Take the medicine, come and see
I believe we'll still be here inside a thousand lives or more
