Back On The Chain Gang lyrics

I found a picture of you, oh
It hijacked my world that night
From a place in the past we've been cast out of, oh
Now we're back in the fight

Yes, we're back on the chain gang
Whoa, back on the chain gang

A circumstance beyond our control, oh
The phone, the TV, and the news of the world
Got in the house like a pigeon from hell, oh
Sand in our eyes, descended like flies

Yes, we're back on the chain gang
Whoa, back on the chain gang

The powers that be
That force us to live like we do
Bring me to my knees
When I see what they've done to you

But I'll die as I stand here today
Knowing that deep in my heart
They'll fall to ruin one day
For making us part

I found a picture of you, oh
They were the happiest days of my life
Like a break in the battle was your part, oh
Lonely heart, lonely hearts

Yes, we're back on the chain gang
Whoa, back on the chain gang
