A Messy Room

Small room, dim light wonít lift my gloom,
Music playing, people laughing but canít hear what their saying,
Channel flicking, room so quiet can hear the clock ticking.

Staring round this messy room,
Partyís over, am all alone.

Wanting to speak out for this generation, trying to make them see,
Weíre not happy; itís an abomination,
Drowning in a sea of mediocrity.

The partyís over am all alone.

Trudging round my hometown, face in constant frown,
I hate what happens in this town,
Letís get together and burn the fucker down.

Starting round this messy room.

Quite sad Dave, but is has a nice gentle feel to it, depite the anger at the end.

Tiny typo
hear what their saying,

Try ...hear what they're saying...
