Sing Along with the Common People


 Are you sure you want to live like common people?
You want to see whatever common people see?
You want to sleep with common people?
You want to sleep with common people, like me?


 But she didn't understand,
She just smiled and held my hand.


 Rent a flat above a shop,
Cut your hair and get a job.
Smoke some fags and play some pool,
Pretend you never went to school.


 But still you'll never get it right,
'cause when you're laying in bed at night,
Watching roaches climb the wall,
If you call your Dad he could stop it all.


 You'll never live like common people,
You'll never do whatever common people do,
You'll never fail like common people,



You'll never watch your life slide out of view,
And dance and drink and screw,
Because there's nothing else to do.


 Sing along with the common people,
Sing along and it might just get you through,
Laugh along with the common people,


Laugh along even though they're laughing at you,
And the stupid things that you do,
Because you think that poor is cool.


They'll tear your insides out
'cause everybody hates a tourist
Especially one who thinks it's all such a laugh.


You will never understand,
How it feels to live your life,
With no meaning or control,
And with nowhere left to go...
