Del Amitri

Everybody in the fun house 
Says they want out
But we're taking our time
'cos we're in love with time
 Whole generations thinking of themselves 
As infidels and pop stars  While the bomb loses patience
We line up and just lean against the bar

 Stone cold sober, looking for bottles of love.

 Caught in the headlights 
Wide-eyed and ready to receive 
We are the dead life
 Locked in dogfights, lost in disbelief 
And these dark days
Make the nights seem brighter than they are
So while fleet street rolls and the moon glows 
In the fun house the fun starts 

 Stone cold sober, looking for bottles of love.

Born in the half-light
Of threats and bribes 
In a hopeless porn parade 
We get the dog's life, tidbits train us
What to wear, what not to say
When you're footloose but you just feel limbless 
Life gets in the way
So we get loaded or totally legless
But stay the same

 Stone cold sober, looking for bottles of love.
