Lyrics‎ > ‎

Shadow Boxing

The Sandboy is drying in the sun.
He has a girl's hands and a smooth chest,
He's harming no-one.
He hears the waves crash, pins cold cash on unmasked skin,
Like it's a Greek wedding and he's the bride.

The Cardboard Box Brigade shiver by the river.
In their loose skin under bad breath they quiver.
Reading Tintin off the blanket inside,
And Paddy wears a Stetson as a remnant of his pride.

Shadow boxing
In a world that doesn't care.
And I'm aching, so I'm leaving,
All roads lead nowhere.
And I'm burning, and I'm numbed up inside,
And I don't know what to fight for anymore.

There's danger in the sunset, there's danger in your eyes.
Don't stare as you step over me, don't watch my demise.
You'd never believe it, but if you closed your eyes
I could tell you all about what I could have been.

Samson takes you to the cleaners.
He has ice-packs in strange places.
Fax them, axe them upon business altars
Till health falters for the ice man in his swivel chair.

Shadow boxing
In a world that doesn't care.
And I'm aching, so I'm leaving,
All roads lead nowhere.
And I'm burning, and I'm numbed up inside,
And I don't know what to fight for anymore.

We are the desperados.
We are paper, scorched, about to burn.

Shadow boxing
In a world that doesn't care.
And I'm aching, so I'm leaving,
All roads lead nowhere.
And I'm burning, and I'm numbed up inside,
And I don't know what to fight for anymore.
Won't someone show the way,
Show me the way, show me the way
To God’s door.
