Marillion - The last straw

Tekst piosenki:

   Hotel hobbies padding dawns hollow corridors
  a typewriter cackles out a stream of memories
  Drying out a conscience, evicting a nightmare
  Opening the doors for the dreams to come home
  We live out lives in private shells
  Ignore our senses and fool ourselves
  to thinking that out there there's someone else cares
  someone to answer all our prayers, our prayers...
  Are we too far gone, are we so irresponsible
  Have we lost our balls, or do we just not care
  We're terminal cases that keep talking medicine
  Pretending the end isn't quite that near
  We make futile gestures, act to the cameras
  With our made up faces and PR smiles
  and when the angel comes down, down to deliver us
  we'll find out that after all, we're only men of straw
  But everything is still the same
  passing the time passing the blame
  we carry on in the same old way
  we'll find out we left it too late one day
  to say what we meant to say
  Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the water,
  those problems seem to arise the ones you never really thought of
  the feeling you get is similar to something like drowning
  out of your mind, you're out of your depth, you should have taken soundings
  Clutching at straws, we're clutching at straws, we're clutching at straws
  And if you ever come across us don't give us your sympathy
  You can buy us a drink and just shake our hands
  and you'll recognise by the reflection in our eyes
  that deep down inside we're all one and the same
  We're clutching at straws - we're still drowning
  Clutching at straws - we're still drowning, yeah
  Clutching at straws - I'm still drowning
