Handcuffed
(Riff Regan, Steve Voice)

Choose my life
The one I want
Haven’t got time
Don’t want to be bought

Somebody out there
Knocking down the door
Well he’ll give you five years
In the diplomatic corps

You’re handcuffed to your life
Handcuffed
You’re handcuffed to your life
Handcuffed to your life
I volunteered for mine
Yeah

Dedication move
And you want to be a star
Everybody out, electric guitar
Somebody out there who hasn’t got a clue
Everybody saying ‘What do you do?’

You’re handcuffed to your life
Handcuffed
Handcuffed to your life
Handcuffed to your life
I volunteered for mine
Yeah

Everybody knows, nobody else
Politicians cry, don’t know themselves
So out the camera, on TV
One rule for you, one rule for me

Monday morning, lying in bed
Friday screaming out of your head
In retrospect -a life of crime
Just a way of doing time

Slide down the old mystery road
No real clue where it goes
Nobody really wants to know
’Cos you play too fast, you play too slow

You’re handcuffed to your life
Handcuffed
You’re handcuffed to your life
Handcuffed to your life
I volunteered for mine
Yeah

Everybody knows, nobody else
Politicians cry, don’t know themselves
So out the camera, on TV
One rule for you, one rule for me

Monday morning, lying in bed
Friday screaming out of your head
In retrospect -a life of crime
Just a way of doing time

All the straights put you down
Strange, strange that you move around
Born too late, too late to follow
They’re born too late
Too late tomorrow

You’re handcuffed to your life
Handcuffed
Handcuffed to your life
Handcuffed to your life
I volunteered for mine
Yeah.  Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
