lyrics

Growing apart is natural
When you burn at different ends
Could meet in the middle one day
To resolve our differences

This industry is tough
But the money is good
Hard manual work
White collar livelihood

Relationships are hard work
I get bored easily
Nasty and ruthless
Fake sincerity

The promise that kills me
That road trip round the coast
It will happen
The passenger is a ghost

Filling cracks with paper
Sent it down
Running from debts
Is normal in this town

Filling cracks with paper
Sent it down
Running from debts
Is normal in this town

Completely obsessed
The brokers are clowns
They don't have the passion
To turn this all around

I wanted it so bad
Old habits die hard
Distant reality
Scrapped in the shipyard

Filling cracks with paper
Sent it down
Running from debts
Is normal in this town

Filling cracks with paper
Sent it down
Running from debts
Is normal in this town

The wreath around a model
No body in the box
The bigger man did
Actions above the talk

Call to the cliff side
The final straw is found
Woken up by the law
Smoke bellows out

Filling cracks with paper
Sent it down
Running from debts
Is normal in this town

Filling cracks with paper
Sent it down
Running from debts
Is normal in this town
