Same Old Tune

The same thing day in day out
What on earth is this about?
Playing the same track everyday
The same old tired tune always played

Up at 4am five days a week
The future looks very bleak
Same moans and groans batter the ears
All thinking on future fears

The same thing day in day out
What on earth is this about?
Playing the same track everyday
The same old tired tune always played

Some cry themselves to sleep
Many hungry mouths to feed
Others grin and bear it once again
Who are they kidding when they pretend?

The same thing day in day out
What on earth is this about?
Playing the same track everyday
The same old tired tune always played

Some brave souls take a risk
On a new path, turns and twists
Whilst others stand still like stone
Feeling empty and dying alone

The same thing day in day out
What on earth is this about?
Playing the same track everyday
The same old tired tune always played

We all hope for a miracle once in a while
To escape mundane lives lived by trial
But nothing comes knocking at your door
You have to go get it if you want more

The same thing day in day out
What on earth is this about?
Playing the same track everyday
The same old tired tune always played

The same old tired tune always played
The same old tired tune
Always played
The same old tune
Always played…
