holy deadlock lyrics – anthony phillips

where we are, it’s cold and lonely
there we are, oh god if only
either one of us would go away

where we are, is next to nowhere
even the highway just hates to go there
nothing in the world could make it stay

why do we sit here in misery
is it democracy or just insane?
you and your yen to be high in society
speaking financially, it looks like rain:
and you say: “boy, you better be nice to me
i’ll get what is coming to you
i’ll take all the property too”.

where we are is holy deadlock
god had a nerve when he named it wedlock
couldn’t he have found another way?

where we are, it’s cold and lonely
there we are, oh god if only
either one of us would go away

why do we sit here in misery
is it democracy or just insane?
you and your yen to be high in society
speaking financially, it looks like rain:
and you say: “boy, you better be nice to me
i’ll get what is coming to you
i’ll take all the property too”.
