Walking Man

Wake up in an icebox
Every clock in the house blinks you're out of luck
All your magical boxes
Are cold to the touch and won't wake up

Chorus:

Now you're waiting for the walking man
But I don't think he understands
He's doing just what he can
On the other side...

Curse at the shower
Swear at the plastic and the glass
Jump in your new car
Everything on the dash just starts to flash

Now you're waiting for the walking man...

Middle 8:

Time goes by so slowly
Knows you're in a manic rush
Time goes by so quickly
Feels your deadlines welling up...

Now you're waiting for the walking man...

Stab at the buttons
Want to reach inside and show who's boss
Eyeball to eyeball
You can stare all you want he won't let you cross

Now you're waiting for the walking man....
 

Unknown Track

Unknown track, Unknown artist,
No one beating at your door
Unknown track, Unknown artist
A silhouette and nothing more.

Pour your heart out, pour your heart out on the floor
Tears are streaming, tears are streaming through the walls
You're the apple of someone's eye.

Unknown track, Unknown artist
Another song no one will hear
Unknown track, Unknown artist
All the gear and some ideas.

Pour your heart out...

The waves they pass right through you
But they never leave a scar
Your skin is alabaster
But your fingertips are hard.

Unknown track, Unknown artist,
No one beating at your door
Unknown track, Unknown artist
A silhouette and nothing more

Pour your heart out...

Was that my go, was that my party
Wish I'd known it at the time
I'd try harder to be better, ignore all the warning signs

Unknown track, Unknown artist,
Unknown track, Unknown artist,

There's someone beating at your door

Golden Snowflake

I don't want to take a lifetime

to get where I wasn't meant to be

You lot always had it easy

A golden ticket and a mystery

chorus:

You keep on about your Beatles and your Stones

Is that your music or your troubles and the pills you're on?

You can roll your eyes and reminisce all you want

You try living for a future that's already gone.

 

You were baby, baby boomers

Now you're just a ticking bomb.

You can label me a snowflake

But I'm melting from the things you've done.

You keep on about...

We are living in a spotlight

and we hide among our emojis

Your idea of a youthquake

Is double denim and a new LP

You keep on about......

 

Last Thing on TV

They made you a promise and you believed them

A glittering palace of Leisure and chrome

Now you are older, you see right through it

But you cling to the side afraid to let go.

And it's all the same

When the sun goes down

It's all the same

When the lights go out

chorus:

You're watching the last thing on TV

Hoping the dot won't fade into that infinity

Watching the last thing on TV

Hoping the dot won't fade into that infinity

 

You chose a path and followed the breadcrumbs

Food for the body if not for the soul

You look around and you know the landscape

Spinning in circles to find your way home

And it's all the same

When the sun goes down

It's all the same

When the lights go out

chorus:

You're watching the last thing on TV...

Middle 8:

When did we get so old....
