    Lyrics

    I never was a violent man
    Said the man in the bar with his head in his hands
    Trying his best to understand the cause of his dismay
    But years of gin have broken him
    And left him cold where he fitted in
    It's too late to turn around and find another way

    All the lights in the late night lock-in
    Fade away when he gets in
    And the girl from fifteen years ago
    Has packed and gone away
    She said it'll never be what it used to be
    What happened to all that energy
    You took too many liberties, and I'm tired of being afraid
    So night after night she took flight
    Hiding swollen eyes and a wounded pride
    The best years of her life denied, sold for liquid shares

    [Chorus:]
    The victims of this world, are advertised on posters
    A beach and a pretty girl, if you just drink their potion
    It's another week 'til his cheque comes through
    He's got a fiver left to spend on food
    But the doors of the bar are open, and he breaks another rule
    He sits on the stool that bears his name
    His favorite glass is called the same
    And he's never kept waiting, 'cause he pays the landlord's wage
