Now there are no words to describe
How you feel, there's no even keel
I've run out like the film in my fax
I know I'm gonna end up on my jacks

There's so much to say that can't be said
So I don't want to get out of bed
Why would you throw it all away
Just to come to see me so dismayed?

If they could see how I played the game
I'd put my dead relations to shame
And now that everything is wrong
How long do you think that I can go on?

There's a hundred reasons that I know
To take the towel and throw it in
To ring and try to make it end
But I can't let them down who upon me depend

If they could see how I played the game
I'd put my dead relations to shame
And now that everything is wrong
How long do you think that I can go on?

I tried to put on it a positive spin
And ended up with nothing
In my life to do one good thing
If I could think of something

Till the rain falls and I should shamble back
With all around my head air raid flak
Deep down I might jump off the pier
So whatever you do, don't let me go near

And if they could see how I played the game
I'd put my dead relations to shame
And now that everything is wrong
How long do you think that I can go on?

I tried to put on it a positive spin
And ended up with nothing
In my life to do one good thing
If I could think of something

And ended up with nothing
If I could think of something

There are no words to describe
How you feel and there's no even keel
I've run out like the film in my fax
I know I'm gonna end up on my jacks

And If they could see how I played the game
I'd put my dead relations to shame
And now that everything is wrong
How long do you think that I can go on?

And that's it
