Raw meat for the balcony
Another mugging in Tin Pan Alley
Another heart attack takes the centre stage
You might think I'm being cynical
But after these years I can still pass the physical
Still got my corner, still got my edge

And the waitress takes an order for another round
And I try to blend my way into the crowd
But the hunter of the autograph he wants my name
And I just can't find the strength to turn him down

Raw meat for the balcony
Don't get me wrong I don't need your sympathy
Just lend me a needle and spare me a dime
I'm just a tear in the public eye
From laughing or crying it don't mean that much to me
Some sort of reaction is all that I need
And the cognac goes down better in the hotel room
When you are staring at the writing on the wall
Condemned by the critics who wanna tear me down
When it's just another lyric going for a song

I'm raw meat

We're low life on the highway in search of coin
Picking up the pennies off the road
Guided by direction in the wake of stars
We were driven by a dream that has broken down
But the bandwagon, well it's parked up in another town
Well I hope that tomorrow that its heading out our way
To get us out of this tunnel where we've paid our dues
With friends we buried out there beyond the lights

Raw meat for the balcony
Is that all I am, all I'm gonna be?
Raw meat for the balcony
Nobody's fool but mine, is that my destiny?

But if the bandwagon takes off for another town
And the suits that buy the wine they don't like my songs
Well, though I'm playing to empty tables
Till that curtain falls
I'll always have the strength to carry on
I'll always have the strength to carry on (raw meat)
I'll always have the strength to carry on (raw meat)
I'll always have the strength
I'll always have the strength
I'll always have the strength to carry on (raw meat)

Raw meat raw meat raw meat raw meat raw meat (raw meat raw meat)
Raw meat raw meat raw meat raw meat raw meat (raw meat raw meat)
I will always have the strength to carry on
(Raw meat raw meat raw meat raw meat raw meat)
I will always have the strength to carry on
(Raw meat raw meat raw meat raw meat raw meat)
Carry on
Carry on
Raw meat raw raw meat
Raw meat raw raw meat

(I'll always have the strength)
Raw meat
(I'll always have the strength)
Raw meat

That's all I'm gonna be
That's all I'm gonna be

Raw meat raw meat raw meat
(I'll always have the strength)
Raw meat
(I'll always have the strength to carry on)
