From the album Subject To Change
It happened again yesterday
Just when I thought that I got away from the Thought Police
Sliding off my tongue – a casual statement is flung
See it's reception – what have I done with my glossary?
"I said something without meaning now I know I was wrong
If I was unkind, can I rewind where that come from?
If I say it without meaning can I change my mind?"
For instance, when I've had a drink
I wager my wages I'll say something that's going to come out strong
But those are the ways – chucking in my chip shop days
Brought up by handstand, then led astray by a wicked plan
