Lyrics Town Called Malice

Well stop dreaming of the quiet life 'cos it's the one we'll never know
And quit running for that runaway bus 'cos those rosey days are few hey
Stop apologising for the things you've never done
'Cos time is short and life is cruel
Up to us to change in a town called Malice
Rows and rows of disused milk floats dying in the dairy yard
And a hundred lonely housewives
Clutch empty milk bottles to their hearts
Hanging out their old love letters on the line to dry
It's enough to make you stop believing when tears come fast and furious in a town called Malice, hey ha
Pah pah pah pah pah lah pah pah pah pah lah pah oh
Pah pah pah pah pah lah pah pah pah pah lah pah
Struggle after struggle year after year
The atmosphere's a fine blend of ice I'm almost stone cold an' dead in a town called Malice ooh yeah
A whole street's belief in Sunday's roast beef gets dashed against the cop
So either cut down on beer or the kids new gear
It's a big decision in a town called Malice, ooh yeah
Ooh, the ghost of a steam train echoes down my track
It's at the moment bound for nowhere just going round and round oh
Playground kids and creaking swings lost laughter in the breeze
I could go on and
I probably will but sooner put some joy back in
In a town called Malice yeah ha, ooh ooh ooh ooh
In this town called Malice, yeah
In town called Malice ooh yeah
