coal gives me energy
wisdom gives me sight
leave a little at the bottom
to soften up the fight

a chemical imbalance
imposed upon the weak
how i needed to be stronger
so lather rinse repeat

It's always simple
never clean
it's always easy
but the journey is obscene

i've found an answer
for the darkest night
even though my load is heavy
when i'm loaded it's so light

you come round here
i'll fix it for ya (x2)
you come round, you come round, you come round here
i'll fix it for ya


'ol jack leather
breaks into a crowd
and in a moment he's absorbing you

a great big chauffer
makes him on the prowl
like an ogre with a point of view

he's not old
but he's grey
and he breathes bewitched and decay

he's a big tall man
with superfluous frame
its a dangerous occasion
like a rat in a cage
let him go

'ol jack leather is a dangerous man

what will you do at the end of the day
biding the time waste the whole day away

where will you go when the fun is all gone
oh take you're time
mmh mmh mmh
don't be long


wake up (x4)

wake up and wipe the tears from your eyes
wake up now no need to wear a disguise

wake up and put on your sunday shoes
wake up now you ain't got nothing to lose

wake up
wake on up
