Stiff Little Fingers — Get A Life lyrics

Well you snap to attention and pay heed to what they say
Cos you know that you please them all that way
And you don't need to think now cos your mind has gone astray
And they'll do your thinking anyway
And your head is full of ideas that don't mean a thing

With your new sense of duty and your brain washed shiny clean
It's time to take your part in the parade
Yet you sound like your father and I don't want to be mean
But did you never want to break away
And your head is full of answers with no questioning
And your life is very simple you won't let the outside in

(Chorus:)
Won't you tell me, why won't you get a life?
Are you scared of what feels right?
Won't you help me, reach the meaning of you

Well it's hard for me to understand how this could be
You're the same age as me, yet you're older by years

Well you snap to attention and pay heed to what they say
Cos you know that you please them all that way
So I won't try to change you, you can carry on that way
But I hope you come back to life one day
And your head is full of ideas that don't mean a thing
And your life is very simple you won't let the outside in

(Chorus)
