Full Steam

Album: Draw The Line (2009)
  • All our lives we've dreamed about it
    Just to find that it was never real
    This sure ain't no great Valhalla
    Coming closer each turn of the wheel
    Forlorn adrift on seas of beige
    In this our Golden Age
    Bullied suckered pimped and patronized
    Every day your tawdry little lives
    So loose your head
    And step within
    The silence deafening
    Now you saw it coming
    And I saw it coming
    We all saw it coming
    But we still bought it
    Now you saw it coming
    And I saw it coming but still
    Running full steam ahead
    In and out of consciousness
    It breaks my heart to see you like this
    Crying wringing hands and cursing fate
    Always so little far too late
    It's 3am I'm wide awake
    There's still one call to make
    Now you saw it coming
    And I saw it coming
    We all saw it coming
    But we still bought it
    Now you saw it coming
    And I saw it coming
    We all saw it coming
    But we still bought it
    Running full steam ahead
    Running full steam ahead
    Running full steam
    Now you saw it coming
    And I saw it coming and I
    Running full steam
    Now you
    And I
    We all saw it coming
    But we still bought it
    We all saw it coming
    But we Still bought it Writer/s: DAVID GRAY
