A recording from the 'You Can't Buy Back Your Life' Sessions that didn't make the record.


At night you bite your head off.

Look back to the years that have since passed,
Picture the moment that led to the bottom of that glass
Sometimes you think that you can hide it from yourself,
But there's nowhere left to run.

At night you bite your head off.

Change. The years have come and they have passed,
And you have changed - still staring at the bottom of that glass,
You thought you'd find a little cheer to dull the pain,
And it works, but the pain comes back again.

At night you bite your head off.

Worm of a man I call him,
I call him out to beat him,
Despite his efforts we are
All in all a better people.

Worm of a man I call him,
Poison incarnate watch him,
Betrayed his mother he did,
All in all we're better people.
