You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking
And after a while, you can work on points for style
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile
So that when they turn their backs on you,

You know it's going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you get older
Hide your head in the sand,
All alone and dying of cancer
And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest you have sown
And it's too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw around
Dragged down by the stone (stone, stone, stone, stone, stone)
I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise

That everyone's expendable and no-one has a real friend
And everything's done under the sun

Who was trained not to spit in the fan
Who was broken by trained personnel
Who was fitted with collar and chain
Who was breaking away from the pack

Who was found dead on the phone
