Sonny fell in love and they left town, got a 9-to-5 that brought him down and they fly towards the Sonny stole the wages from the boys took it for the kids to buy some toys and they fly towards the Sonny took a beating for his prize people passing by ignore the cries and they sigh towards the sun When they told him P45'd him right, they took his pride and killed what's inside outright, yeah killed what's inside outright Sonny hit the sauce when he came home insisted he was boss and showed her so and she cries towards her Sonny took his time to get things right wrapped his lips around a 45 and he flies towards the Sun

Well I break down, sometimes all night. Such sorrow to be here without you, on my own. Tonight it's not right where you are and where I am away so far from your arms and your heart Hey you it's a pleasure to meet you such a treasure to hold you and I yearn just to hold you Oh my poor heart, poor pride. I cried, for you I'd do all things that's right Hey you it's a pleasure to meet you such a treasure to hold you and I yearn just to hold you Hey you it's a pleasure to meet you such a treasure to hold you and I yearn just to hold you

The feeling Marcus got reminded of another time, the feeling when he shot the car mechanic in the eye. He wanted to not to crack he begged him just to change the oil, the mechanic had the knack and Marcus' temper it did boil Johnny's in the slammer a plaything for the other boys. That feeling of submission and chin scraping the back destroys Johnny's cracked again and he's reaching for the inmates throat. The noises that he hears reminds him of a dying note Coz this is when the crazies come out this is when the crazies come out Susie killed her man she stabbed him about 200 times. She'd gained a little weight, result from giving him a child. He'd started sleeping round with every slapper in the town so Susie cut him up for being all that brought her down. Coz this is when the crazies come out this is when the crazies come out Phillip's last in class no longer mothers golden child. He'd wee'd himself at school the torments really drove him wild. He took his fathers gun and initiated what he'd planned, 15 bodies later his face is on the newspaper stands Coz this is when the crazies come out this is when the crazies come out

We beg our ma's as years go by to sing another lullaby those paisley curtains said goodbye sometimes I like to wonder why A smile is often hard to trace upon a once familiar face and if we stop to look at the sky our space is gone with some passerby although you share a next of kin they killed the passion deep within left and let you lay on the ground you picked yourself up never got down but somewhere along the line you grew up tall your head held high grabbed your fears and crossed that line screamed out loud I feel fine We beg our ma's as years go by to sing another lullaby those paisley curtains said goodbye sometimes I like to wonder why But somewhere along the line you grew up tall with head held high grabbed your fears and crossed that line screamed out loud I feel fine

Hey you bunch of fools I have just the thing to bend the rules hey get off your stools I am not the one to suffer fools come over here and get yourself really near Drop your toys and get your head over here Cause I'm feeling alive now and I'll never come down now Hey kick off your shoes you can never see you've paid your dos hey shake off your blue which you will never win until you lose Make a noise and make it audibly clear Drop your toys and get your head over here Cause I'm feeling alive now and I'll never come down now Cause I'm feeling alive now and I'll never come down now

The further I go down the harder it is to turn around Waiting for the reverie The emperors new gown, a feeling upon which it's frowned Waiting for the reverie This is how I feel

When I first met you you were someone else but all that's changed maybe for the best you've lost that charm and your winning smile but gained a heart and those sleepy eyes And aren't you feeling sleepy now And aren't you feeling sleepy now remember when we would talk of when when I was nine, you were an older ten your fire died when you first realised we must grow up and live a life of lies And aren't you feeling sleepy now And aren't you feeling sleepy now
