From the album The Hurt & The Humour

Lyrics

I never thought I’d crash and burn
I make nice to a point of no return
Expectations fly so high
I drown inside

Automated sycophant
An enduring elephant
I raise smiles, never questions
Like am I jesting?

It’s a life on the lines
It’s a life in the service
The service of others
It’s a life on the lines
It’s a life in the service
The service of others like you my dear

The computations in my head
Tell me when and how to care
You think it’s love but it’s a system
Just listen

One plus one is always three
It can not work without the me
Soon as it’s fixed I’ll go on home
One plus one alone

It’s a life on the lines
It’s a life in the service
The service of others
It’s a life on the lines
It’s a life in the service
The service of others like you my dear

My head cracks open and your ”love” flows in
You crack a smile and pat me gently on the head
Good night sleep tight while I lay waste to your mind
Admit it to me boy you never wanted life

It’s a life on the lines
It’s a life in the service
The service of others
It’s a life on the lines
It’s a life in the service
The service of others like you my dear
