You're so wrapped up in your Jekyll-Hyde life

And the wife and the kids can see plainer than light.
A                         C#m
Fever(?) for them and the wife of before

Just to lie and(?) get out that door.

I know it's too late to change my strategy
  G             A           G             A
I know that I'm broke but I can't seem to pull away
C         D         C          D
Any way I move they turn their backs to me
G          A              G    A
What's the use they don't even speak to me

             D            A
What does it matter now?
           D             A
They don't seem to care
                D              A
There's nothing left to share

A               C#m
 Way up in that towerblock fortress
    D                        E
The view is of car-dumps and disused gasworks
A                             C#m
They don't come see you play around anymore
            D                              E
Cos they've packed your bags and left them outside the door

This is as close as I can get it - the lyrics that have a question
  mark after them are as close I as I could get although I'm pretty
  sure they're not right.  If anyone can shed any light on what the
  lyrics are please get in touch.  Cheers.
