  • Wrap me up in goodbyes
    Old Sargasso sky
    'Cause I'm about to take flight
    Please don't ask me why
    And if the devil wants me
    Tell him I got high
    'Cause life is what you make it
    You got yours and I got mine

    When the end comes my way
    Will I drop to my knees and pray?
    And if my parents ask you
    Tell them I'll be okay

    And now the robots have made the rounds
    Sand dunes fill up all our towns
    Foxes howl and the creepers prowl around
    The peeling wet bricks of London town
    Foxes howl and the way men cower
    Won't you find a way for me somehow?
    So let's get dirt on an Oxford shirt
    Throw a party so we won't get hurt
    See you frown through your evening gown

    When I fall from the wagon
    Twisted frown from the businessmen
    Won't you find a way from me somehow?
    When I fall from the wagon
    Hiding from the businessmen
    Won't you find a way from me somehow?

    I tried to make a call to heaven
    Phone lines cut back in '97
    Radio silence all the way down
    The robots make all the paper rounds
    And all the kids have left the towns
    Foxes howl and the preachers bow down

    When I fall from the wagon
    Twisted frown from the businessmen
    Won't you find a way from me somehow?
    When I fall from the wagon
    Hiding from the businessmen
    Won't you find a way from me somehow? Writer/s: Edwin Thomas Congreave, Jack William Bevan, James Andrew Smith, Yannis Barnabas Emanuel Philippakis
