Shiny Cage lyrics

Hiding faces turning pages
Still they read and read
Double deckers full of smokers
Look whos gone to seed
Well the suns getting higher
Think Ill take a flyer
The thought of its causing me pain
Ooh! shiny cage
Talk a walk under the subway
See an old school chum
Window shopping for a short while
Then well have some fun
Well the shops closing early
Everywheres deserted
Hello and down comes the rain
Oooh! shiny cage
Well do the town tonight
I know some girls then stop off for a bite
No strings to tie my kite
Well living for the night
No way to spend a life -- ooh!
