Dreams Schemes and every things
Fill the dusty corners of your mind
As cars, boats and airplanes
Just remind you of a better time

As love's hopes and everyone's
Anyone worth a minute of your time
When unhampered by the agents,
Of the governors of the faceless so opaque,
As bare tree's and winter winds
Just confine you to, a bitter place
A time you can't face
A peace of your mind

We should be playing in the sunshine
Happy to be part of everything,
Not handled, greedy handlers
Brought down and destroyed
By their own ways
Liars! Liars! Smoking on pipes.
Dimwit fires
Who Just throw it in their way
And how's your father today
Was he caught in the rain ?
Waiting on a Bed
Putting up with the pain
Your three wishes expire
Now your back in the fire
Lock the genie in the shed
Put a pistol to his head

Not handcuffed to some wanker
Who doesn't know me
(and doesn't see (that) our lives are made-
(on) from all the efforts,
Of the masses,
And all the people who deserve a better - fate

Than a time you can't trace
No peace in your mind
A time you can't place
Now your back in the race,
Your three wishes expired
Now your back in the fire
(your three wishes expired,
Now your back in the fire)

See you just can't play
Now without a say
Always got to be the man
Always got to have the plan,
It doesn't run that way
Into the ether you'll say
(your three wishes expired,
Now your back in the fire)

Your three wishes expired,
Now your back in the fire
