about

A hymn for the middle-aged man who is confused by how it ended up as miserable as all this...

lyrics

Another year passes
You’re life’s a mess
You look in the mirror
And see the distress

Nobody warns you
About the toll it takes
But it’s all mapped out
In the lines on your face

You remember the plans
You never made
All the pointless things
That got in your way

You’ve worked yourself
Half to death
All that time wasted
And it makes no sense

Another year older
Another permanent frown
Another nail in the coffin
Another man down

Another step closer
Another irritated scowl
Another nail in the coffin
Another man down

You used to think
It would all make sense
But as the time goes by
It made no difference
So much for all that experience

You can’t get it up
It just gets you down
The hairy nostrils
The disgusting jowl

Can you remember when
It wasn’t that long ago
You were young and virile
The top of the show

But time is cruel
And time don’t care
But at least you don’t need a comb
If you’ve got no hair

Another year older
Another permanent frown
Another nail in the coffin
Another man down

Another step closer
Another irritated scowl
Another nail in the coffin
Another man down

Another nail in the coffin
Another man down

Hey hey, isn’t it a pity
No one warned you
About the nitty gritty

Hey hey, isn’t it a pity
No one warned you
About the nitty gritty

You’re all alone
Without a pally
Watch out son
You’re in snipers alley
Watch out son
You’re in snipers alley

Your marriage is fucked
You’re back on the shelf
You couldn’t satisfy her
You can’t satisfy yourself

Nothing is fun
Nothing is appealing
You’ve got to the point
Where you’ve got no feelings

Can’t turn back the clock
To a different time
When things where better
You knew your own mind

You’re stuck in the now
And your clothes don’t fit
So you lose some weight
But your breath still smells like shit

Another year older
Another permanent frown
Another nail in the coffin
Another man down

Another step closer
Another irritated scowl
Another nail in the coffin
Another man down
Another nail in the coffin
Another man down

You want to be interesting
You want to take a hobby
But the garden needs weeding
And that’s so fucking boring

Maybe you’ll find love
On the internet
But there’s only catfish there
To get your ding-dong wet

Then you realise
All your friends are dying
They’re the same as you
But they’re no longer crying

Going to funerals
Singing their praises
It won’t be long
Before you’re pushing up daisies

Another year older
Another permanent frown
Another nail in the coffin
Another man down

Another step closer
Another irritated scowl
Another nail in the coffin
Another man down
Another nail in the coffin
Another man down

Hey hey, isn’t it a pity
No one warned you
About the nitty gritty

Hey hey, isn’t it a pity
No one warned you
About the nitty gritty

You’re all alone
Without a pally
Watch out son
You’re in snipers alley
Watch out son
You’re in snipers alley
