lyrics

Tigers in the Park


On the buses schoolgirls tease
Windblown kisses miss their rides
Painted springs and frozen smiles
Canter nowhere in the breeze

Youth confined to sink estates
Restless creatures, hooded snakes


After homework, adult things
High on something, bitter pills
Sharpened blades and blunted minds
Rusted horses, chains on swings
Numbers glow on sweating palms
Ring-tones clash with car alarms

No respect and bass bin thrills
Silent futures, blank weekends
Pointless stations, breaking glass
Feral children, clockwork kills
Friendly needles puncture skin
Lovely liquids boil within

Chorus:
Paper tigers in the dark
Not burning bright or breaking hearts
Wasting time in wasteland park
No more futures, no more sparks.
