Track Name: Broken Faucet - Radio Edit Version
I traveled on the wrong trying to find a way off it
I had a big red balloon till a bigger kid popped it
Lost my key to the door did you ever come across it?
Seems I struggle with the flow like a broken faucet

I got my coat & a pocket full of small change
Got a good, good friend and a belly full of yellow flames
I got a rose and ticket for a fast train
I got a short fuse fixed and a remedy to use your pain

Well the clockwork doll she could never keep a-smiling
And the tears of a clown no they're never drip-drying
There's a fat rat gambling on the road it's looking rocky
& nobody here relaxed there’s a crowd getting jumpy

I got some boots & a penny for your wishing well
I got a flute and a glimpse of where the blue sky fell
Can flick a coin, don't mind a-heads or tails if it lands
I'm by the stream with a bucket full of bad dreams off my hands

Some people will come & some people will go
Moving round and round from town to town, where they are you never know
But there's no point me banging my head on this wall
Circling round & round on the same old ground waiting for the axe to fall

I got my coat & a pocket full of small change
Got a good, good friend and a belly full of yellow flames
Can flick a coin, don't mind a-heads or tails if it lands
I'm by the stream with a bucket full of good times on my hands
Track Name: Poor Boy
Poor Boy working hard
For more than peanut pay
But his time is dwindling
Like autumn days

Poor Boy thinking hard
Poor Boy been hard done
Where did those big dreams go?
Where do they run?
From where, oh where do they come?

Poor boy working hard
But the taxman takes his pay
He’s got a bone to pick
Anyway

For empty promises
You lose your rag
But you swim along with the tide
When you’re waving your blue flag

Poor Boy feeling scared
Of losing all he pined
A worried wife at home
A worried mind

Poor boy lost his job
God knows he needs a hand
Seems any foot could fall
In quick sand

For empty promises
You got no bag
But you swim along with the tide
Now you’re waving your red flag

A two-way conversation
Is now a one-way street
Opinion steam rolls us
Off our feet

For empty promises
You’ve lost your rag
But you swam along with the tide
Now you’re waving your white flag

Poor Boy thinking hard
Poor Boy been hard done
Where did those big dreams go?
Where do they run?
