Lyrics

Working Class Hero

As soon as you’re born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you’re clever and they despise a fool
Till you’re so fucking crazy you can’t follow their rules

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they’ve tortured and scared you for twenty-odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can’t really function you’re so full of fear

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you’re so clever and classless and free
But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There’s room at the top they’re telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill

A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me

My Little Old Town

If you have ghosts, you have everything
If you have ghosts, you have everything
You can say anything you want
And you can do anything you want to do
If you have ghosts, you have everything

One never does that
One never does that
You can call it surprise, there it is
And a part of it is me
One never does that

In the night I am real
In the night I am real
The moon to the left is a part of my thoughts
And a part of me is me
Forever is the wind
In the night I am real

Dreamers

If you have ghosts, you have everything
If you have ghosts, you have everything
You can say anything you want
And you can do anything you want to do
If you have ghosts, you have everything

One never does that
One never does that
You can call it surprise, there it is
And a part of it is me
One never does that

In the night I am real
In the night I am real
The moon to the left is a part of my thoughts
And a part of me is me
Forever is the wind
In the night I am real

Hallelujah

The other day I found myself up on the corner
I thought I run into a friend of mine
Ended up that he was just a stranger
I said hello as he passed me by
Then he turned and put a gun to my head
He said, “My friend I’m going to rob you blind”
I said “You must be down on your luck
I’m outta money and I’m all out of time”
He pulled the trigger and I fell to my knees
My spirit left and then my body went cold
I’m looking down upon the lights of the city
I feel alive, but I’m dead and gone
Ain’t no more walking down the side of the road
Ain’t no more sleeping on the edge of a frame
Ain’t no more favors from someone I don’t know
Cause there ain’t nobody to hear me, nobody’s around

Hallelujah, coming home
Hallelujah, he’s dead gone
Hallelujah, somethings wrong
Hallelujah

So tell me now if your singing can bring me
Another day with my feet on the ground
I miss living and living misses me
I miss it so much that I’m holding me down
For all the things that I never could change
For all the reasons that I never understood and why
I feel alone baby
I’m dead and gone baby
There’s somethings wrong
Cause you know I still feel alive
My train is rolling down the line
And I’m waiting for it to bring me the dream
Of holding you up in my eyes
Open my love honey
I’m up above honey
Oh don’t give up on me
Cause I’m coming down
I’m not a one nighter
I ain’t a flat liner
I’m everything in between the harmony, singing loud<

Hallelujah, I’m coming
Hallelujah, it’s dead and gone
Hallelujah, somethings wrong
Oh Hallelujah
Its just a song

The other day I found myself up on the corner
I thought I run into a friend of mine

These Moments

If you have ghosts, you have everything
If you have ghosts, you have everything
You can say anything you want
And you can do anything you want to do
If you have ghosts, you have everything

One never does that
One never does that
You can call it surprise, there it is
And a part of it is me
One never does that

In the night I am real
In the night I am real
The moon to the left is a part of my thoughts
And a part of me is me
Forever is the wind
In the night I am real
