Going Nowhere Fast

Sunshine burns through the windscreen
Dirty jobs and the language obscene
Stuck in rush hour time moving by
Leaving this town hope I don’t come back ‘til the day I die

Cos oh yeah life’s a blast
Going nowhere fast
Sure hope this ain’t gonna last
Going nowhere fast

Dead-end job with minimum wage
Get laid off and it’s back to the jobs page
Late night movies and yesterday’s curry
Stay in bed all day ain’t in no hurry

Cos oh yeah life’s a blast
Going nowhere fast
Sure hope this ain’t gonna last
Going nowhere fast

Dirty rain throwin’ itself down
Burnt out cars cover the waste ground
Stereo blasting down the road 90 mile an hour
Graffiti all along the watchtower

Cos oh yeah life’s a blast
Going nowhere fast
Sure hope this ain’t gonna last
Going nowhere fast

It’s a free world but I can’t afford a thing
And it brings me down
Living in overweight middle-aged middle-income
Middle of the road town

Red brick houses with brown rooftops
Grey concrete and boarded-up corner shops
Streets full at chucking out time
Sirens hunting down another crime

And oh yeah life’s a blast
Going nowhere fast
Sure hope this ain’t gonna last
Going nowhere fast

Oh yeah life’s a blast
Going nowhere fast
Sure hope this ain’t gonna last
Going nowhere fast
