Track Name: Better Happen Soon
I saw New Order in ‘84
I had a time when I followed the Fall
I skipped up the Pennine Way
And drowned myself in the urban rain
I’m a country boy
Who followed the lights
The music drew me
To City Life
Well, its been good and bad,
And sometimes sublime
Despite drunken nights
And Petty crime

I’ve been here for 22 years
I’ve always worked both ends of the room
Something good better happen soon
Something good better happen soon

I was at the Hacienda back in the day
The PSV and the International 2
But I sat at my day job every day –
Drawing obscene doodles to you –
I never mean to make this my stopping place
And not everything has been to my taste
But there comes a time
When the music fades
And its time to head
For some better days

I’ve been here for 22 years
I’ve always worked both ends of the room
Something good better happen soon
Something good better happen soon

Manchester’s stuck in its own myth
And I’m not sure its one I’m happy with
Well, thanks for the memory
And the laughs and the rest
And I’ll send you a postcard
From where I go next.
Its an easy place to land
A bad place to grow –
Bad farmers
Reap what they sow
Don’t get me wrong
I’ve no regrets –
I chose my bed
And I lay in it –
But I’ve seen better worlds
Just a flight away
And I might have to try
And get away
The Joy Division theme park
Was not my idea
And to be honest
I don’t think its got any place being here.

Track Name: The Wreckage
So very
thinks to choose
his time

But the hammer
can fall
in a second

Make the day
last long
get in line

Lets not
things could have
been better

won’t you get in line
won’t you get in line
won’t you get in line

Did I ever
ask you
what you did
with your time?

Let us go
down again
and look at
the wreckage?

At the place
it happened
there’s nothing
to notice

There’s a boy
at the window
and he was there
on that morning

will he forget?
will he forget?
will he forget?
will he forget?
