Strangeways
Strange, strange

I was born into confusion
My mother said to me
'When you become a man you'll understand'
But it's still a mystery
'And if you want to get ahead
Get some decent clothes
The only way to make it
Dress the part'
That gets right up my nose

And I think to myself in this river of doubt
This is something I can do without
But strangeways is what I got

The indians are coming Isaw it on tv
They're 20,000 strong
But they always get depleted by the cavalry
Salvation is at hand
It's guaranteed
Just send a donation straight to God
1-800 toll free

And I think to myself in this academy of fear
Where am I going what am I doing here
But strangeways is all I got

Have you seen the headlines
Princess engaged
3 million out of work
But that's on the 2nd page
The alien has landed
Finger in his ear
Can't hear a word I am saying
But that ain't such a bad idea

And I think to myself in this cradle of lust
Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust
But strangeways is all you get
