  • Fish from the paper, fresh from the sea
    The cracks in the pavement, the city in siege
    I don't know where to replace it or who to believe
    Can't find on the pavement or lay on his knees
    Scratching around in a second I got where you should be

    We're going to wake up the nation, don't be no drag
    Shake up the station, a night up ahead
    We're going to wake up the nation, don't be no drag
    Shake up the station, a night on our hands

    Nowhere to be
    Nowhere to be

    Get your face off the Facebook and turn off your phone
    The death of the post box, no one is home

    Scratching around in a second I got where you should be

    Nowhere to be
    Nowhere to be

    We're going to wake up the nation, don't be no drag
    Shake up the station, a night up ahead
    We're going to wake up the nation, don't be no drag
    Shake up the station, a night on our hands

    We're going to wake up the nation, don't be no drag
    Shake up the station, a night up ahead
    We're going to wake up the nation, don't be no drag
    Shake up the station, a night on our hands Writer/s: PAUL WELLER, SIMON DINE
