Headin' For A Fall
(c) Blairhill Records
Comin' out of every mouth around me
Simply don't know who to believe
Blue skies pixellated
On a screen above my head
Wish that it only was a dream
I'm reeling from the Real
Because it hits me like I've run into a wall
Better get me some momentum
Because otherwise I'm heading for a fall
Brother, sister listen
This ain't no time for wishin'
We got a world ambition
Heading for it, heading for it
Brother, sister waken
History won't stand no fakin'
This world it needs some shakin'
Headin' for it, headin' for a fall
Standing on that favourite stage tonite
Wonder how else they get their kix
That's apple pie and motherhood
And wireless in the neighbourhood
We need a brand new bag of tricks
Instinctively I feel
That it's important to be stylishly appalled
Though lately I do recognise
It's likely that we're heading for a fall
A sample of K-Punk: on Gordon Brown
