  career stakes

come on down to the party
on heart attack beach
you can watch as the waves
break on cancer-death reach

there's a cave in the rocks
where the spiders have died
and they come floating out
at the change of the tide

come on, try to return
try to swim through your life
back to basics, before
you were caught in the strife

of the nine to five cut
and the day to day drain
through the year by year rot
of frustration and pain

raise your eyes to the gloom
in the grey of the sky
where the sun used to rise
and the birds used to fly

then remember the trouble
that's dogged you of late
track it back to its roots
in the cradle of hate
