Like Low Life

 

Jade’s smashed on alco-pops by mid-day

And her little kid sister Faye’s got a taste

For the stuff now she’s eight

Dave’s selling ten pound wraps to his mates

Dealing gate-way drugs to the blind and the brave

And the Friday brigade

 

Jumped up marked down we’re falling around like low life

Hung up strung out we’re torching the town like low life

 

Tom’s got a past he’s still running from

He’s dreaming of kingdom come

Throwing crumbs to the crows and the bums

While Craig leads the black sheep parade

Che Guevera in stolen shades

With his mace and a home-made grenade

 

Jumped up marked down we’re falling around like low life

Hung up strung out we’re tortured and loud like low life

 

Like low life

Like no life I know

Like no life I know

Like no life at all

 

I heard Beth tried digging speed for a bet

It’s funny how quick you forget but I guess

It’s a year more or less

And there’s me caught between the devil and the vitamin c

All the lifestyle magazines and this cheep

Subterranean dream

 

Jumped up marked down we’re falling around like low life

Hung up strung out we’re torching the town like low life

Jumped up marked down we’re falling around like low life

Hung up strung out we’re tortured and loud like low life
