False Dawn

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 There’s an inevitability
As to how this will occur
Success will be fleeting
Go by in a blur

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 We’ll top the table
Before anyone has us sussed
But by season’s end
We’ll probably have gone bust

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Old reliables, normally plodders
Will spring around like lambs
But that’s just until the slaughtering starts
And they’re loaned out to the Rams

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And all the new blood
Will flatter to deceive
For when the culling starts
That first dawn, will be so hard to retrieve


are those chimes i hear in the background?
