Life in a Glasshouse

  • Once again I'm in trouble with my only friend
    She is papering the window panes
    She is putting on a smile
    Living in a glass house

    Once again packed like frozen food and battery hens
    Think of all the starving millions
    Don't talk politics and don't throw stones
    Your royal highness's

    Well of course I'd like to sit around and chat
    Well of course I'd like to stay and chew the fat
    Well of course I'd like to sit around and chat
    But someone's listening in

    Once again we are hungry for a lynching
    That's a strange mistake to make
    You should turn the other cheek
    Living in a glass house

    Well of course I'd like to sit around and chat
    Well of course I'd like to stay and chew the fat
    Well of course I'd like to sit around and chat
    Only only only only only only only only only only
    There's someone listening in Writer/s: COLIN CHARLES GREENWOOD, EDWARD JOHN O'BRIEN, JONATHAN RICHARD GUY GREENWOOD, PHILIP SELWAY, PHILIP JAMES SELWAY, THOMAS YORKE, THOMAS EDWARD YORKE
