There’s a lot more people better off than you

I saw you sitting on the pavement
Watching the goose-step of the crowd
You were a picture of rebellion
A kleptomaniac and proud

Well I should’ve seen it coming
from miles away
kiss the pavement goodbye
and say hello to the ice age

Queen Jane
You’ve got everything to fight for
Queen Jane
You’ve got everything to lose
Queen Jane
You’ve got everything to live for
And there’s a lot more people worse off than you

Well let’s just pretend we’re human beings
for a while
Chronic Shyness
Can drive us to a smile

Queen Jane
You’ve got everything to cry for
Queen Jane
You’ve got everything to win
Queen Jane
You’ve got everything to die for
And there’s a lot more people better off than you

The say your vacant face
Helps the tourist trade
If they could see you in your leisure time… well

A funny thing happened on the way to here
The headlines read like the end was near
For Queen Jane

The say your vacant face
Helps the tourist trade
If they could see you in your leisure time…

Queen Jane
You’ve got everything to fight for
Queen Jane
You’ve got everything to lose
Queen Jane
You’ve got everything to die for
And there’s a lot more people worse off than you

Queen Jane

It wouldn’t happen in another world
It couldn’t have happened to a nicer planet
It would’ve happened in another world
So don’t pretend to care when you don’t care

Ten years asleep
In the queue for the late night bus
With all of us

Breakfast television
Is the biggest decision I’ve made
In the last decade

It wouldn’t happen in another world
It couldn’t have happened to a nicer planet
It would’ve happened in another world
So don’t pretend to care when you don’t care

Ten years asleep
It’ll be far too late
To call 0898

Ten years asleep
Every mind is UXB
So don’t pretend that…

It wouldn’t happen in another world
It couldn’t have happened to a nicer planet
It would’ve happened in another world
So don’t pretend to care when you don’t care

All the punks are pushing thrity years
And are hardly feared
All the young dudes
Work for all the old brutes
In expensive suits

Ten years asleep
’cause your grave is empty
But already dug

Ten years of sleeping knees
Instead of news
So don’t complain that…

It wouldn’t happen in another world
It couldn’t have happened to a nicer planet
It would’ve happened in another world
So don’t pretend to care when you don’t care

There, there, there
