Shriekback - Nowhere Nothing Never lyrics

I had the Pushback
I heard the Hard Word
came up the hard way
it didnt phase me
I had the fire in the belly

I learned the door codes
I kept my nose clean
I got the Soft Eyes
I took the Lump Sum
and I trousered it away

my special insights
were used in sound bites
I worked the Drawdown
I planned the Clawback
avoided Mission Creep

I had the Upgrade
I got the Ensuite
A seat with sight-lines
I got the Glad Hand
(that put the tin hat on it)

It dont make no never mind
It dont make no never mind
every naked ape it wants to live for ever

It dont make no never mind
when you leave the world behind
I got 3 words for you
'Nowhere Nothing Never'

I hawked a new deal
broke off some blue chip
I found the nosebag
finessed the big beasts
it was a simple thing to do

I did the Grand Slam
and then some handstands
used only name-brands
(I had some Quality moments)

I met the Big Cheese
he sent his Lynch Pin
gave me his new book
I read the whole dam' thing on the plane

and all of these scenes
there in my grand scheme
were all I had dreamed.
(Cocked up the one time-
it was an isolated case)

It dont make no never mind
It dont make no never mind
Every human soul and all our best endeavours

It dont make no never mind
when you leave the world behind
Just keep this in mind
'Nowhere Nothing Never'

I found the Right One
we had too much fun
couldn't keep our pants on
and I never ever looked at another

we had a rapport
that you would die for
as big as that door
and I finished her sentences for her

we found the on switch
and then we got rich
and in the last ditch
there was nothing still left to accomplish

we made a fine pair
it didn't stop there
we climbed the grand stair
and walked the old collonade in the summer..

It dont make no never mind
It dont make no never mind
every naked ape it wants to live for ever It dont make no never mind
when you leave the world behind

I got 3 words for you
'Nowhere Nothing Never'
