  • Don't walk the plank like I did
    You will be dispensed with
    When you've become
    Inconvenient
    Up on harrowdown hill
    Near where you used to go to school
    This where I, this where I am lying down
    Did I fall or was I pushed
    Then wheres the blood?

    But I'm coming home, I'm coming home
    To make it all right
    So dry your eyes

    We think the same things at the same time
    We just can't do anything about it.
    We think the same things at the same time
    We just can't do anything about it.

    So don't ask me ask the ministry
    So don't ask me ask the ministry

    We think the same things at the same time
    There are so many of us
    Oh you can't count
    We think the same things at the same time
    There are so many of us
    Oh you can't count

    Can you see me when I'm running
    Can you see me when I'm running
    Away from there
    Away from there
    I can't take the pressure
    No one cares if you live or die
    They just want me gone
    They want me gone

    But I'm coming home, I'm coming home
    To make it all right
    So dry your eyes

    We think the same things at the same time
    We just can't do anything about it
    We think the same things at the same time
    There are too many of us so you can't
    There are too many of us so you can't count!

    It was walking to the back down Harrowdown Hill
    It was walking to the back down Harrowdown Hill
    It was a slippery slippery slippery slope
    It was a slippery slippery slippery slope
    I feel me slipping in and out of consciousness
    I feel me slipping in and out of consciousness
    I feel me Writer/s: THOMAS EDWARD YORKE
