*** Selling Out Your Future ***

Switching on the city lighting all the
Homes feel so secure
Cos the west is ever caring she can
Keep your fires burning
Switching to a bedroom lighting
Hiding low you're insecure
Hand around the candle you say
There's no more joy to come tomorrow

CAUGHT IN THE ACT
You were taking your time
You said everything's fine
You said nothing would change
Nothing would change so
Nothing would

Selling out your future
Selling out your future

Drew the curtains shut the light out
Slept alone on the floor
But you couldn't stop the draft
Creeping underneath the front door
You ignored the press gang selling
Lottery tickets at the stairs
But you already sold your hat for a
Dark green helmet yesterday

CAUGHT IN THE TRAP
You had nothing to choose
You saw everything lost
You had nothing to say
Nothing to say so nothing's said

Selling out your future
Selling out your future

Switching on the city lighting all the
Homes feel so secure
Cos the west is ever caring she can
Keep the camera staring
Switching on the colour vision
Smiling faces lie to you
Faded voices crying “Fall into line then Fall - out”
Come tomorrow

CAUGHT IN THE TRAP
You were taking your time
They were buying your mind
You had nothing to say
Nothing to say so nothing's said

Selling out your future
Selling out your future
