dancin with the damned/another head case

Dancing with the damned

Outside the rains falling down

Got a pocket full of loose change

Enough to get me out of this town

Got a plastic bag full of my stuff

I left you a note

Just hope it’s enough

One last glance as I look around

Flash floods and flash backs

As the dust settles on the hunting ground

Tainted breath and tired eyes

Is all that’s left behind

Searching for the truth but been living a lie

Chorus

I’ve been dancing with the damned

Feels like walking on quicksand

I let my self be lead astray

Only just realized today

I’ve been dancing with the damned

This place is doing nobody any good

The party has to stop

Got to get my head out of this dirty hood

Ain’t no seasons here the years always grey

And the ace of hearts and queen of pain

Still beg you to stay

Don’t light a candle don’t say a prayer

I’m not your saviour never was meant to be

I hate to see you in dispair

I gotta go and save my soul

Find the strength to let you go

Don’t Wanna drag you down this hole

Chorus(x2)

I’ve been dancing with the damned

Feels like walking on quicksand

I let my self be lead astray

Only just realized today

I’ve been dancing with the damned

Outro

Lost in the void all hope destroyed

Feeling like a guilty child

Hanging with the boys hell we are the unemployed

Gonna make the first move find a new groove

This madness has to end

Going to take the rough and make it smooth

Another head case

It’s late afternoon

I’m already howling at the moon

My friends say I got the blues

I just need some more booze

Society seems to be winning the war

It keeps pushing through the back door

Right now life tastes so bitter

Good job I’m no quitter

Chorus

I’m just another head case

Someone who’s loosing the race

Head up in the clouds

I’m ripping the “Turin shrouds”

For Christ sake, I’m screaming out loud

Work tries to pin me down

But I’m still the talk of the town

We all need help to cope

You try living without hope

You can call me wrong

But I just wanna belong

I don’t fit into your plan

So take me back to where it all began

Chorus

I’m just another head case

Someone who’s loosing the race

Head up in the clouds

I’m ripping the “Turin shrouds”

For Christ sake, I’m screaming out loud
