​Desperate Days

This song is by Poison Girls and appears on the album Songs Of Praise (1985).

Desperate days. Nothing on the airways

People just standing around

Talking on corners

Waiting for the end to come

Jezebel for a hand to hold

Everywhere's the same, no one's to blame

The escalator

Everyone's running up and down

At the same time

Who could have guessed the end of the line

Would look like this

Jezebel signs of praise

She never sang before

Desperate days. Nothing on the airways

People just standing around

Sitting on fences

Waiting for times to change

Jezebels kneels in the rain on the runaway

Crying for love that's gone

No one's to blame, ain't it a shame

The escalator jammed

There's nowhere to go-nowhere left to go

The destination failed

We aimed for the sky. We aimed to high

Now we've gone to ground

Jezebel sings songs of praise

She never sang before

Desperate days. Nothing on the clock face

People drifting around

Taking no chances

Waiting for the bang to come

Jezebel waves goodbye on the runway

Trying hard to understand

Empty paper empty pages

The indicators blank

There's nothing to say nothing left to save

It's far too gone

The planes were in the sky

When the fuel ran dry

We were forced to land

Jezebel sings songs of praise

She never ever sang before
