Lyrics

There's too many people planning your downfall

When your spirit's on trial these nights can be frightening Sleep transports sadness to some other mid-brain And somebody here will not be here next year

So you stand by the board full of fear and intention And if you think that they're listening Well, you've got to be joking Oh you understand change and you think it's essential But when your profession is humiliation...

Say the wrong word to our children We'll have you, oh yes, we'll have you Lay a hand on our children And it's never too late to have you

Mucus on your collar A nail up through the staff chair A blade in your soap And you cry into your pillow

To be finished would be a relief To be finished would be a relief To be finished would be a relief To be finished would be a relief To be finished would be a relief To be finished would be a relief

Say the wrong word to our children We'll have you, oh yes, we'll have you Lay a hand on our children And it's never too late to have you

To be finished would be a relief To be finished would be a relief To be finished would be a relief To be finished would be a relief To be finished would be a relief To be finished would be a relief
