Now what is it that happens when you grow up?
Booster seat and booster pack
Become energy boosters and getting the sack
And you only become scared once the
Truth. Comes. Dawning!
Somewhere, a person dreams of dungaree blue skies
It’s a Cadburys world, it’s just covered in flies,
And I don’t really care about those middle-class lies
But how they maintain that look in their eyes
Which say’s ‘We’re safe’, ‘It’s the right choice’ and ‘We really can change the world’.
Growing up means this; a cynical balance of love and hate.
Now we know reality’s deal,
It’s big-arsed builders eating sushi, reading ‘the sun’,
And tough-nut primates who’s god gave them a gun,
But it’s not all really that immoral to steal,
And there’s that look again. We aren’t ever safe,
I know that this life’s for real.
