lyrics

In the shade of the viaduct
And the engine house tumble down.
The streets where your forefathers made their name
Look different now.
From the state of the chains wrapped around the gate -
28 years give or take.
There’s talk of drilling again,
But talk doesn’t put food on the plate.
Here where it’s one and all,
What’s stopping them?
What’s stopping us?

Down in the dumps,
Let the radon revive you.
Your father takes a pay cut again,
and your sister has moved back in.
I can tell from that look in your eye
You know where it all went wrong.
But Dad it’s 1994,
You’ve got to move with the times.
Here where it’s one and all,
What’s stopping them?
What’s stopping us?

You say it’s the pits, it’s the pits,
But the airs getting cleaner.
Take a light to the hole in your life
And shine it on the things that you love.
It doesn’t matter that we don’t know what we’re out here for,
We know what we’re up against.
Dust down your boots boys,
We can turn this around.

Here where it’s one and all,
What’s stopping them?
What’s stopping us?
