Lyrics Back On The Chain Gang

I found a picture of you oh oh oh oh oh oh
What hijacked my world that night
To a place in the past we've been cast out of?
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Now we're back in the fight
We're back on the train hey hey
Oh oh back on the chain gang
A circumstance beyond our control oh oh oh oh oh oh
The phone the TV and the news of the world
Got in the house like a pigeon from Hell oh oh oh oh oh oh
Threw sand in my eyes and descended like flies
Put us back on the train yeah
Oh oh
Back on the chain gang
The powers that be that force us to live like we do
Bring me to my knees when I see what
They've done to you
But I'll die as I stand here today knowing that deep in my heart
They'll fall to ruin one day for making us part
I found a picture of you oh oh oh oh oh oh
Those were the happiest days of my life
Like a break in the battle was your part oh oh oh oh oh oh
In the wretched life of a lonely heart
Now we're back on the train yeah
Oh oh back on the chain gang
