SHOTDOWN

(Guy Thomas)  1985

So much goin' on in this city life
That don't have nothin' to do with me
All the glitter and glamour passes me by
Ain't never been my reality
I live somewhere down seventh avenue
The nightlife here is a rough affair
They bring their knives and their guns
And their drugs along
It's like there's no way out of here

Well I'm shot down beaten up
My back against the wall
I'm shot down and I've had enough
I'm just lookin' for a place to fall
And I'm shot down, shot down yeah
Singin' na na na na na na na na na na

I wake up to the city life, city life
Every weekday at 6 a.m.
Packin' up aluminum extrusions
A blue collar worker
That's what I am
Well, I get home and I'm tired
I turn on the tube
I watch as it teases me
With perfect women, perfect families
And perfect fun
Is that what life's suppose to be

Well I'm shot down, beaten up
Tryin' to stand tall
But I'm shot down and it's hard enough
Hard enough just to crawl
When you're shot down, shot down yeah

Singin' na na na na na na na na na na

I not sure what it is I beleive in
And I'm not one for good advice
So chances are I'll go on
Like I've always been
A victim of my own device

And I'm shot down, beaten up
Tryin' to stand tall
But I'm shot down and it's hard enough
Hard enough just to crawl
When you're shot down, shot down yeah

Singin' na na na na na na na na na na
