Testo inside & out - genesis


Released on spot the pigeon e.p., 1977.

Inside

Brother seems theyre letting him out next year
Hes behaving himself, I hear
Governor conway says it will be fine
Just as long as he can tow the line

Its the same old story
But it says here mum youre not to worry
cos some you lose and some you lose

At this party, he was on his own
All he did was say hed take her home
But it seems they didnt go straight there
cos on the porch, she told him,
Put your hand here

Yes its that same old story
They told her mum shes not to worry

Police if what she says is so,
Well never let him go!

Him never a word could be heard
Not even the sound of a bird
Singing it over again, telling a different story
Never the same as before
See the summer going out by the door
Brother and now that youve paid for those lies
Get another disguise

Its twenty years now since our kid came free
Oh I remember august 53
But it wasnt quite like they said
With that behind you, you cant plan ahead
Yes its the same old story
They say youre free, but dont worry
What they saids not so
Theyll never let you go!

Him never a word could be heard
Not even the sound of a bird
Singing it over again, telling a different story
Never the same as before
See the summer going out by the door
Brother and now that youve paid for those lies
Get another disguise

Out
