Docker's life and a renegade. Working class some might say. Living in the past saying, somethings never seem to last. Busy streets that don't care. There must be work somewhere. The moment is complete, penny dreadful falling at my feet. Now I see it. Picks up and reads it. The old west has the key to a fighting man like me. Co's I'm Billy the kid you know, I'm putting on a western show. Londoner. Tragic gunslinger. A violent man of many means. Where do I start in this old town. Find a gun and shoot them down. Or maybe I should rob a train, in the good old British rain. Start a brawl in a local pub. Spilling out onto Wapping mud. Torn out teeth and hair. I'm beaten on the back with a wooden chair. Now I see it. Picks up and reads it. The old west has the key to a fighting man like me. Co's I'm Billy the kid you know, I'm putting on a western show. Londoner. Tragic gunslinger. A violent man of many means. So it doesn't go to well. The Bobby's here all gave me hell. I tried to fight them all but they're bloody big and six foot tall. I'm holding out for her Majesty, to send me love and set me free. Oh if I cant do the time then I really shouldn't do the crime. Now I see it. Picks up and reads it. The old west has the key to a fighting man like me. Co's I'm Billy the kid you know, I'm putting on a western show. Londoner. Tragic gunslinger. A violent man of many means. Oh this is me.

When you wake up in the morning. There's nothing in your head. Why do you have to take forever. Before some words are even said. Time for dreaming isn't real. It doesn't matter how you feel. So take, One step at a time. Then it's all fine. One last time. There's no mountain, you have to climb. Get yourself up off the sofa. Hunger makes you growl. Why don't you switch on the toaster. Spilling your tea brings you down. Time for dreaming isn't now. It doesn't matter when or how. So take, One step at a time. Then it's all fine. One last time. There's no mountain, you have to climb. One step at a time (then it's all fine) One last time. Late for work and it's raining. They always increase your fare. You don't have to work for ever. No one seems to care. Time for dreaming isn't now. It doesn't matter when or how. So take, One step at a time. Then it's all fine. One last time. There's no mountain, you have to climb. One step at a time. One last time. One step at a time.

All My Days 03:05
Hell or high water, don't you have the time to see. Take it from another, hide it from the powers that be. So set us free (we don't have the answer) On our way (take it from another) All my days, you could be a brother to me. I don't have a problem, I saw no point of view. Turning down an offer, we'd do the same for you. So set us free (we don't have the answer) On our way (take it from another) All my days, you could be a brother to me. So set us free (we don't have the answer) On our way (take it from another) All my days, you could be a brother to me. Take me to your leader, I just want to bring them down. Save me from disaster I'll be your lost and found. So set us free (we don't have the answer) On our way (take it from another) All my days, you could be a brother to me. To me. To me. To me.

Some say you should be so lucky, I say I don't even worry about that. It's becoming a fact. Let go of all your troubles, I know I can even think about that. An emotional fact. Tell me now am I heartless. Tell me now does it, all come down to what the hell's it all about. I know it's not the money. I know I should never worry about that. It's not even a fact. Let this become your mission. I know I can even think about that. An emotional fact. Tell me now am I heartless. Tell me now does it, all come down to what the hell's it all about. summer sun it takes me down, Burns my soul from inside out. So to give another day, I start to find I fall away. There beneath an open bridge, the water traps beneath a ridge. Pressure builds it can not stay, so it finds another way. Set me free like rivers flow, run away and let it go. Never seems to stop at all, I will wash away the shores. Tell me now am I heartless. Tell me now does it all come down to what the hell is this.

Crowded round the town's old square, many people I know are there. We shout and scream about our rights, with disagreements there'll be fights. The army tries to take control, they're warning us that we must go. Those that stay will hang from trees, the highest branch is meant for me. Some how things get out of hand, the farmers run as we burn their land. What the hell do they want from me, am I really worth it. No one gave us any rights, the only choice now is to fight. Nothing else for us to do. Am I really worth it. The Sargent try's to take control, warning us that we must go. You must disperse he shouts with hate, before you find that it's too late. So come and take us one by one, there's no regrets for what we've done. See the fires are burning high the funeral pyre's alive tonight. Some how things get out of hand, the farmers run as we burn their land. What the hell do they want from me, am I really worth it. No one gave us any rights, the only choice now is to fight. Nothing else for us to do. Am I really worth it. I don't think we can change this, I know it's not my business guaranteed that we will fight all night. I must give into reason, Co's I know that this ain't treason, guaranteed that we will fight all night. Some how prison doesn't seem so bad. Or carting me off to a far away foreign land. Some how things get out of hand, the farmers run as we burn their land. What the hell do they want from me, am I really worth it. No one gave us any rights, the only choice now is to fight. Nothing else for us to do. Am I really worth it.
