Strangeways Lyrics

Strange ways

I was born into confusion
My mother said to me
?When you become a man you'll understand?
But it's still a mystery

And if you want to get ahead
Get some decent clothes
The only way to make it
Dress the part that gets right up my nose

And I think to myself in this river of doubt
This is somethin' I can do without
But, strange ways is what I got
(Strange ways)

The Indians are coming
I saw it on TV
They're twenty thousand strong
But they always get depleted by the cavalry

Salvation is at hand
It's guaranteed
Just send a donation straight to God
One eight hundred, toll free

And I think to myself in this academy of fear
Where am I going, what am I doing here?
But strange ways is all I got
(Strange ways)

Aaa, aaa
Aaa, aaa
Aaa, aaa

Have you seen the headlines?
(Princess engaged)
Three million out of work
But that's on the second page

The alien has landed
Finger in his ear
Can't hear a word I am saying
But that ain't such a bad idea

And I think to myself in this cradle of lust
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
But strange ways is all you get
(Strange ways)
