Lyric:

See those people there? They look after me
This is a photograph of who I might be
Man in a uniform... bride on his arm
Mum always was a fool for money and charm
He's been talkin' in his sleep again
Sayin' he's sorry, callin' my name
Sayin' how he's so ashamed....
Alone again on the laps of luxury
Alone again on the laps of luxury
Is there no escape
Since it happened I'd nothin' to say
It used to bother them but now it's O.K.
Mother cleans his dreadful house every day
Scrubbing at the stains that won't go away
They sent me away to the school in the park
They said it would be good for me
I still hear the other kids cry in the dark
Alone again on the laps of luxury
Alone again on the laps of luxury
Is there no escape
Alone again on the laps of luxury
I don't remember the last time I cried
I don't remember much except lies
See the little girl spirallin' down
This is a photograph of who she is now
"One day this will all be yours", he said
Tidy up your room and straight to bed
Tidy up those thoughts in your head
Alone again on the laps of luxury
Alone again on the laps of luxury
Is there no escape
Alone again on the laps of luxury
I could be anywhere right now
If I only had the nerve to leave this house
Maybe somewhere by the sea...
Take me somewhere, anywhere please!!!
We could make a pillow of sand and sleep
We could roll
We could make
We could see
We could scream
