Safe as Houses

This song is by China Crisis and appears on the album What Price Paradise (1986).

Safe as houses
Built on quicksand
Because I place my trust
In small time tricksters comin' on crooks
I know the strain of day to day
Busy, busy everybody
I've seen the strangest times
It's far from noticed
Busy, busy everybody
I know the strain of day to day

I shook up my world
And stood back in amazement
I saw the greatest of worlds (might be "I sold the greatest of worlds")
To be the cheapest attraction

Safe as houses
Built on quicksand
Because I don't compete
For nobody's place
Could make it any different
I know the strain of day to day
Busy, busy everybody
If you could talk me down
I would not want for anything or anyone

I shook up my world
And stood back in amazement
I saw the greatest of worlds
To be the cheapest attraction

Safe as houses
Built on quicksand
Because I waste my time
In backstreet dealings
Give me nothing every time
I know the strain of day to day
Busy, busy everybody
I've seen the cruelest times
It's far from noticed
Busy, busy everybody
