  • 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
