lyrics

Decline to Fall

Never let them tell you that
It's later than you think
Pick up the final straw
To use it in your drink
And in some country where
It's always party time
Slow decline
Sip your stiff red wine

No-one who knows you
Could ever expose you like we do
We can't help it
You're a party to this too

You're sinking faster than
A leaking submarine
Still telling tales of all
You should have done and might have been
There but for the grace of God
I'd follow you some more
Good angels stopped me
That's what I pay them for

No-one who knows you
Could ever expose you like we do
We can't help it
You're a party to this too

Never let them tell you that
It's later than you think
You take the final straw
And drop it in your drink
And in some country where
It's always party time
Sad decline
You'll sip the stiff red wine

No-one who knows you
Could ever expose you like we do
We can't help it
You're a party to this too
