    Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
    You fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way
    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

    Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
    You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

    And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking
    And racing around to come up behind you again
    The sun is the same in the relative way, but youre older
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

    Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
    Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
    Hanging on in quiet desperation is the english way
    The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say

    Class. Best lyrics ever written

    Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band – Rockaliser Baby

  5. Did you ever hear about the Great Deception
    Well the plastic revolutionaries take the money and run
    Have you ever been down to love city
    Where they rip you off with a smile
    And it don't take a gun

    Don't it hurt so bad in love city
    Don't it make you not want to bother at all
    And don't they look so self righteous
    When they pin you up against the wall

    Did you ever, ever see the people
    With the tear drops in their eyes
    I just can't stand it, stand it no how
    Living in this world of lies

    Van Morrison - 1973
