The Audient

Don't want to know about foreign wars
or miners plundering distant shores
Better off just to ignore
the world as it decays
Gotta get my kids to school
slave my guts out for fuck all
every day till nighttime's fall
until the darkness stays

Don't sing to me about anything sad
Give me a tune that will make me forget
Show me a place in your soul to hide
cos life is far from over yet

Bitch of a day, bastard of a week
Happiness plays Hide And Seek
Soon my bones will start to creak
and I'll retire and die
You there, singing songs at me
do me a favour and make me feel free
Thanks for your generousity
when I ask, for you know why

Don't sing to me about anything sad
Give me a tune that will make me forget
Show me a place in your soul to hide
cos life is far from over yet
