about

In the High Street, they fall into a conversation with a man of late middle years who is down on his luck, and, with no hope except to busk songs of injustice, which fall on deaf ears of his fellow sufferers, unwilling shoppers who brush past, simply happy to have someone to look down on.

lyrics

A MOST UNLUCKY MAN
1:
THERE`S NO DENYING, NO USE LYING
I`M NOT A LUCKY MAN
I`M ON THE RACK, NO TURNING BACK
IT`S JUST THE WAY I AM

CHORUS
DON`T YOU KNOW THERES NO PRIZES PAID
FOR COMING BOTTOM OF THE LEAGUE
DID YOU KNOW, THERES NO PRIZES MADE
FOR DISAPPOINTING ALL YOU SEE
2:
NO ILLUSION, SAVE CONFUSION
THERE'S NO MASTERPLAN
I`M RUNNING BACK, THERES NO ATTACK
I`M ALWAYS IN A JAM

CHORUS
DID YOU KNOW GETTING KNOCKED BACK IS MY TRADE
ALL THE HEARTACHE MAKES ME BLEED
DID YOU KNOW, IF THERES A CHOICE THERE TO BE MADE
I`LL TURN THE WRONG CARD, DON’T YOU SEE

3:
THERE`S NO WAY BACK, NOWHERE TO FALL BACK
NOW I DON`T CARE A DAMN
THE TROUBLE BREWED BLACKENED MY MOOD
NOW I JUST, LET IT STAND

I DON`T CARE FOR THE PEOPLE I USED TO SEE
THEY DON’T MATTER MUCH TO ME
I DON’T CARE FOR THE PROBLEMS THAT THEY MADE
NOW I `M RUNNING AWAY FROM ME
