about

Retoons project. Shooting at the World lyrics written circa 1986 (other titles, Engineer, The Train)

lyrics

Life in the city
And you grow old
Weary of the people
And the things you are told
Well, it's better to be in love with you
Come on lets go away
This never-ending saga of soap
Will never make TV
Life’s dull and boring trudge we troop
To make an end for the day
And the steely wheels of commercial rope
So eager for us to obey

Wives in the kitchen
Have a good day dear
Standing on this train Is so fascinating

Cramming down the undertrain
Feel our bodies close to yours
Bosses sitting watching clocks
See you be in on time
Rush hour troopers of the 9 to 5
Never seeing no one you ever knew
And the old routine of the anonymous gape is
Siting close to you

Wives in the kitchen
Have a good day dear
Standing on this train Is so fascinating

I'll build a bridge
I'll fix the itch
I'm the engineer
Get us out of here

Lover, as you lay with me
We plan our great escape
Lover, lives of one that wants to see
Before it gets too late
I'm not so old and your quite fair
Lover; save yourself
Save yourself your last ounce of blood
Now's our chance to make it
Out of here

I'll build a bridge
I'll fix the itch
I'm the engineer
I'll get us out of here

Wives in the kitchen
Have a good day dear
Standing on this train Is so fascinating
I'll build a bridge
I'll fix the itch
I'm the engineer
Get us out of here

about

KCJ RAR York, UK

Song creator, independent artist.
KCJ RAR's Project Retoons, happy time, recreating my songs from the 70's and 80's, home recording guitars and virtual instruments to create classic rock numbers that never were; symphonic prog epics that could have been; and avant-garde psychedelic art rock grooves that surely fill a gap in music history? Maybe not, but lots of fun! ... more
