Lyrics

Escape from hard hat city

 

6am, Groundhog Day

Yellow foot soldiers, come out to play

Dodging suits chasing blame

Yellow foot soldiers, numbers in chains 

Life sentenced trackered souls

Yellow foot soldiers, digging their holes

Warning lights slow the flow

'cause a girl in an office with a clipboard says so

 

In black yards, on white snow

Yellow foot soldiers lined up in a row

 

In the grey I sail away

I take you with me

Everyday I escape 

From hard hat city

In the grey I feel the sun

Your right here with me

Everyday when my mind runs

From hard hat city

From hard hat city

From hard hat city

 

Farewell sweet job 'n' knock

Yellow foot soldiers, slaves to a clock

Counting hours over days

Yellow foot soldiers, lives wished away

Classrooms test old school heads

Yellow foot soldiers, taught to suck eggs

Safety teams search for gold

'cause a girl in an office with a clipboard says so

 

In black yards, on white snow

Yellow foot soldiers are told where to go

 

In the grey I sail away

I take you with me

Everyday I escape 

From hard hat city

In the grey I feel the sun

Your right here with me

Everyday when my mind runs

From hard hat city

From hard hat city

From hard hat city

 

I stretch out and scratch cards in a van,

Dream of you to forget what I am.

 

I stretch out on scratched cards in a van,

Dream of you to forget what I am.
