The Working Day Is Done
No, not Cyndi … Neil.
They say that life imitates art. In this particular case I would argue art is imitating life.
When the working day is through
And you’re waiting in the rain
For another overdue
Overcrowded railway train
And the movie poster screams
“It’s the best film ever seen!”
But it’s all a different world
To which you have never been
And you’re bored out of your mind
So you keep yourself amused
Reading the Financial Times
Of the fellow next to you
Then something in you snaps
And you shout with all your lungs
“We give and get nothing back!”
When the working day is done.”
Neil Hannon - Divine Comedy
Unfair - possibly, but Hannon / Divine Comedy has a history of social observation. In this particular case and entire double album on Office Politics. Wont it be grand when we no longer have to deal with them?
