Against The Grain

lyrics

[V1]
Called him up in the evening
You could hear him but he wasn’t there
There was a photo by the telephone
You could see him but he wasn’t there

[V2]
You got a lot of nice things, hey
And you can do what you like
But it’s the same thing every day
When you’re stuck on standby

[V3]
It’s bright on the top side
But it feels like you’re in a hole
Just dying to get out
You can feel it taking its toll

[CH]
Gotta be down to be up sometimes
So when it’s good it’s all so fine
There’s a strain against the grain

[V4]
And what if this is
The best you can do
Nothing to fall on
Nowhere to run to

[V5]
It’s bright on the top side
But it feels like you’re in a hole
Just dying to get out
You can feel it taking its toll

[CH]
Gotta be down to be up sometimes
So when it’s good it’s all so fine
There’s a strain against the grain
