CANT SEE THE SUN

Verse One
Joey got high on the 4th of December-
A night he will never forget
The world turned to plastic his body was glass
And he hasn’t come down yet
The word on the street is he can’t find no peace
He can’t find no release from the pusher-man’s leash
He swears blind he’s fine but the look in his eyes
Says there’s more here than first meets the eye

Chorus
But he can’t see the sun, no he can’t see the sun

Verse Two
Joey got laid on his birthday last year
He’s been thick with fear ever since then
A clown in a circus his face like a mask
Don’t ask him to drop the pretence
Joey boy, life on a tightrope it aint no life at all
Didn’t they tell you that in school?
There’s no sense in nonsense, no woman no cry
But he feels like he might fly

Chorus
But he can’t see the sun, no he can’t see the sun

Middle 8
What are you doing man? You haven’t a clue
The boys in the backroom, they’re all laughing at you-ou-ou-ou-ou OH NO.

Guitar solo

Verse Three

The bounds of the Earth have lost their appeal
Joey can’t tell what is dreams what is real
Big ships are flying around and around
Big fish are biting but they don’t make a sound
Even in summer he’s feeling the cold
The heat of the street it won’t help save his soul
He swears blind he’s fine But the look in his eyes
Says ‘There’s more here than first meets the eye’

Chorus
But he can’t see the sun, no he can’t see the sun
No he can’t see the sun, no he can’t see the sun oh no, oh no, oh no..
