Ribbon Road lyrics


Unfinished Business

UNFINISHED BUSINESS

We're always around when the story's ending
We're always around when the bird has flown
When the door is closing, the train is leaving
We're always around when the chips are down

We're the ones below the line
For us the train is never on time
Whatever happens to us all
We know the boat will never call

So far as we can see ahead
We see no chance of daily bread
Or somewhere for us all to live
Or someone who's prepared to give

We're always around when the story's ending
We're always around when the bird has flown
When the door is closing, the train is leaving
We're always around when the chips are down

Lonely hearts and troubled minds
But we can always read the signs
The truth will come, the axe will fall
‘cos you've already had it all

Unfinished business this will be
Look outside and you will see
Darkness and a yellow sun
The end of life for everyone

We're always around when the story's ending
We're always around when the bird has flown
When the door is closing, the train is leaving
We're always around when the chips are down
