lyrics

Moving to older classrooms
Changes lives
The weak get weaker
Kings step down

A toilet cubicle
I can just fit in
Dictators dictated
Threats scratched on the door

Lazy teachers
Hated back
Their energy's long gone
We're sold as a con

Reinvention's easier
The further away you go
Running from life
With shadows you can't outgrow

This city is a village
Where the past is always near
Round every corner
Has potential of fear

This city is a village
Where the past is always near
Round every corner
Has potential of fear

This adult environment
Is populated by kids
The same insecurities
Capped at the end

Assessment days are wasted
Uncle sealed the job
Another privileged one
On the pile to rise above

Old school networks
Lets the wealth flow
Banks and buildings
Assets château grown

The only one whose trying
It's not the done thing here
Relatives and purse holders
Rule and sneer

This city is a village
Where the past is always near
Round every corner
Has potential of fear

This city is a village
Where the past is always near
Round every corner
Has potential of fear

A harbour man
A harbour man
A harbour man
A harbour man
A harbour man
A harbour man
A harbour man

A harbour man in the country
No ties to the land
He dreams of the sea
Spad in hand

Dirty overalls
In a city boutique
A rural outcast
A working class freak

Poor connections
Only get you so far
Digging graves and cutting grass
Is the summer of caviar

No help from anyone
Did it on my own
Familiar words
A self made groan

This city is a village
Where the past is always near
Round every corner
Has potential of fear

This city is a village
Where the past is always near
Round every corner
Has potential of fear
