    This sombitch nowhere's jewelled lights
    Overflashing trade marks at war
    "Hungry eat cake!" - "Thirsty Drink Cola!"
    Piss stained boy slumps in a door

    His hundred year old teenage eyes
    Watch the lights chase green to red
    Stuck to his head seed bun and fries
    Waiting for the world to end

    I'm gonna live right in your face
    I'm gonna lie here while you play
    Fuck you, yeah and fuck this place
    Don't think you're chasing me away

    Don't think you're better than I am
    The music stops, your chair is gone
    When they weigh the balance, man
    You done no good and I done no wrong

    I am the mess on your doorstep
    You'll see me here until I die
    Yeah, walk on by, look straight ahead
    I'll be here till the whales can fly

    The angel says: 'The gate's unlocked
    But it ain't you must make amends
    The rich guys try and beat the clock
    Waiting for the sale to end -

    Don't think they're better than you are
    The music stops, their chair is gone
    When they weigh the balance, man
    They done no good and you done no wrong'

    Yeah, I'm stopped in front of you
    Waiting for the world to start
    Yeah, I'm stuck at the front of the queue
    Waiting till your world falls apart

    My day begins when your party ends,
    A booby trap in your bouquet
    Dynamite in these happy times,
    Valium for the mortgage rate
    I'll cough in your face as the markets crash
    I'll dog your steps from Pall Mall to The Strand
    My time and place is real, yours incomplete
    As we dream the future we make it wake

    Yeah, I'm up at the front of the queue
    And when you fall you'll fall just once
    Yeah I'm up at the front of the queue
    Waiting till your world falls apart
