The Bends

Where do we go from here The words are coming out all weird Where are you now, when I need you Alone on an aeroplane Fall asleep on against the window pane My blood will thicken

I need to wash myself again to hide all the dirt and pain Cos I’d be scared that there’s nothing underneath But who are my real friends Have they all got the bends Am I really sinking this low

My baby’s got the bends, oh no We don’t have any real friends, no, no, no

Just lying in the bar with my drip feed on Talking to my girlfriend, waiting for something to happen I wish it was the sixties, I wish I could be happy I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen

Where do we go from here The planet is a gunboat in a sea of fear And where are you They brought in the CIA, the tanks and the whole marines, To blow me away, to blow me sky high

My baby’s got the bends We don’t have any real friends

Just lying in the bar with my drip feed on Talking to my girlfriend, waiting for something to happen I wish it was the sixties, I wish I could be happy I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen

I wanna live, breathe I wanna be part of the human race I wanna live, breathe I wanna be part of the human race, race, race, race

Where do we go from here The words are coming out all weird Where are you now when I need you
