|HALF A CHANCE
We want the cold hard facts
but we're fascinated with fiction
Half an ear to hear the truth
half truths are such an addiction.
Envious of how the other half live
because their half is bigger than yours
Waiting to strike it lucky
before you adopt a cause.
Half people, half heartedly
clocking in at half past
Tongue on automatic brain at half mast
waiting for half a chance.
All we need is half a chance.
Told by someone, somewhere to get a life
want it now on lay-by, and one for the wife.
Invisible people everywhere, uninvolved
part of the problem
but they want to be absolved.
Mediocre, middling, mucking around
walking in circles on the same ground
Half caring, half awake
only half a mind to concentrate.
All it takes is half a mind.
Nil-all at half-time
- waiting for half a chance
but comfortable indecision
makes it hard to advance.
Got the ball in your hands
and the goalpost in sight
but you won't get involved
'cause it's not your fight.
halfway to somewhere
but they got distracted.
What was that you were saying?
It hasn't impacted.
your mind and keep your cool
