Back On The Chain Gang (Re-mastered for 'Pirate Radio') (Re-mastered for 'Pirate Radio')

Pretenders

I found a picture of you, o-o-oh, o-o-oh
You had hijacked my world at night
To a place in the past we´ve been passed out of, o-o-oh, o-o-oh
Now we´re back in the fight

We´re back on the train, yeah(ho-ah)
O-oh, back on the chain gang(ho-ah)

Circumstance beyond our control, o-o-oh, o-o-oh
The phone, TV and the news of the world
Got in the house like a pigeon from Hell, o-o-oh, o-o-oh
Threw sand in our eyes and descended like flies

And put us back on the train, yeah(ho-ah)
O-oh, back on the chain gang(ho-ah)

The powers that be
That force us to live like we do
Bring me to my knees
When I see what they´ve done to you
Well, I´ll die as I stand here today
Knowing that deep in my heart
They´ll fall to ruin one day
For making us part
I found a picture of you, o-o-oh, o-o-oh
Those were the happiest days of my life
Like a break in the battle was your part, o-o-oh, o-o-oh
In the wretched life of a lonely heart

Now I´m back on the train, yeah(ho-ah)
O-oh, back on the chain gang(ho-ah)
