STONE-BREAKING

When you swing the hammer
when you hammer it home
on the island with a tail
we are

On her walls in the city shes got pictures of the coast
shes got identical boyfriends
she cant decide which one she despises the most
on her walls in the city shes got pictures of the coast
shes got identical boyfriends
she cant decide

The big fish, in a small town
using last years routine
hung on borrowed lines
the big deal, with a limited view
me and the other critics
are not impressed
- were not confused!

On a rope her image swaying
as she left she scratched a note
she said Im only one person
I cant decide which one I relate to the most
on a rope her image swaying
as she left she scratched a note
she said Im only one person
I cant decide

So why accept an imitation?
The Real McCoy is better than some pale impersonation
we may be burning out but were still burning
I may be slow but at least Im still learning

When you swing the hammer
when you hammer it home
on the island with a tail
we are breaking stone
when you swing the hammer
when you hammer it home
on the island with a tail
we are breaking stone

The big fish in a small town
the big deal with a limited view
we are not amused!

When you swing the hammer
when you hammer it home
on the island with a tail
we are breaking stone
