lyrics

Nowhere


Everyone’s going nowhere
It seems so crystal clear
It’s the only certainty I’ve got
For myself throughout the years
Everyone’s going nowhere
And going nowhere fast
The time for desperate measures’ up
This is always gonna last
Cos’ I can’t get up - And I can’t get down - But I can get nowhere.

All over through the city
I see the people run
They fly away in panicked flocks
To be burnt down by the sun
And whatever sense of pity
Might invade us when we look
We’re the same old dangling crooks, who got
Stuck on the butcher’s hook
Cos’ I can’t get up - And I can’t get down - But I can get nowhere.

Everyone’s going nowhere
It seems so crystal clear
It’s the only certainty I’ve got
For myself throughout the years
Everyone’s going nowhere
And going nowhere fast
It’s time to drink the bitter cup
And slowly sink towards the past
Cos’ I can’t get up - And I can’t get down - But I can get nowhere.
Everyone – Everyone – Everyone – Everyone -

And all over through the city
I see the people run
They fly away in panicked flocks
To be burnt down by the sun
And whatever sense of pity
Will be useless, will be naught
We’re the same old bumbling idiots
Who scream when we get caught
Cos’ I can’t get up - And I can’t get down - But I can get nowhere.
Cos’ I can’t get up - And I can’t get down - But I can get nowhere.
But I can get nowhere.
But I can get nowhere.
