Manana

Smash the buffers or go off the rails, it’s all the same when life’s break fails
Hit a mountain, or crash in the sea
Makes no difference as all can see

Skies of lead, grey with gloom, spinning eyes and spinning room
Drank too much and I’ve been chundering
Drank too much, head now thundering

Smash the buffers or go off the rails, it’s all the same when life’s break fails
Hit a mountain, or crash in the sea
Makes no difference as all can see

Knock it back to drown that pain, knowing it’ll just come back again
Heart plays a rhythm with lots of bass
Misery showing on a careworn face

Smash the buffers or go off the rails, it’s all the same when life’s break fails
Hit a mountain, or crash in the sea
Makes no difference as all can see

No more booze is what you’re thinking, but all the while you go on drinking
I’ll quit it soon, that’s what you say
And manana will be that magic day

Smash the buffers or go off the rails, it’s all the same when life’s break fails
Hit a mountain, or crash in the sea
Makes no difference as all can see
