Thornley Keep A Good Man Down

I know this comes as no surprise

but the wool’s been pulled over our eyes for years

And all the while we sit with our legs crossed

as some poor bastard finds he’s lost ten years

That’s just another day I live inside my head

I’m tired of all the ways that I wish I was dead

It’s been so many years I’ve finally figured out a way to keep a good man down

I locked you up and threw away the key to all your better days, my bad, my friend

There’s so many things you’ll never be, many things you’ll never have, so sad, oh well

That’s just another day I live inside my head

I’m tired of all the ways that I wish I was dead

It’s been so many years I’ve finally figured out a way to keep a good man down

As you’re floating through the paces of your day

There’s a burning need to get yourself away

Everywhere temptation starts to breed

The things you know you’ll never need to

satisfy that greed

Satisfy that greed

I know this comes as no surprise but the wool’s been pulled over our eyes for years, my dear

That’s just another day I live inside my head

I’m tired of all the ways that I wish I was dead

It’s been so many years I’ve finally figured out a way to keep a good man down
