Last Orders

from Dr. Dee's Verbal Surgery by Dr. Dee

lyrics

so wrapped up in the air you breathe,
it's filling up fast, you'd better believe,
last orders, dear friends, take a bow,

absolute health, cheers to the bar,
they say that the end is now not far,
don't cry for what's gone, live for now,

THERE'S NO TIME TO WASTE TODAY,
REMEMBER THIS TASTE TODAY,
DRINK TO WHAT'S GONE, SMASH THE GLASS,
THIS IS NO TIME TO SIT ON YOUR ARSE!

get your rocks off, rock your socks,
watch a shiny plastic fantastic box,
a digital dream with double-whipped cream,

visions appear in front of your face,
you black out the windows and join the race,
to a virtual dream that's silicon-clean,

BUT THERE'S NO TIME TO WASTE TODAY,
REMEMBER THIS TASTE TODAY,
DRINK TO WHAT'S GONE, SMASH THE GLASS,
THIS IS NO TIME TO SIT ON YOUR ARSE!

wheeling and dealing, men in their vibe,
but a hollow and pasted poster of life,
goes tick-tock away on the shelf,

do you think this is what I should be?
peel back the skin and all you'll see,
is a one and a billion noughts,

one more drink now, what do you say?
it eases the pressure but such a price to pay,
and I ain't got time for these thoughts,

what did you say, time to call it a day?
leave to where signs won't post you the past?
anchor up? out of town? out of sight?
get out fast, leave tonight.
