in the end lyrics – faithless

my baby was born in a bed
with white sheets, machines and heat
traveled home in a car to a three room nest, eats and sleeps
laminate flooring to crawl on, tv
talks, starts to walk, amongst love and security

goes to school, learns to read and write
probably follows a team with his friends
and gets to ride the train
fall in love, probably fly on a plane
get to work all week and spend what he earns
on the high street

he’s got doctors, nurses, fireman, churches
kindergarten, wedding bells and jet black he*rs*s
p*ssport, bankcard, maybe his own yard
locks and alarms, trinkets and charms
maybe a baby in his arms

my baby was born on his knees
one of poverty’s offspring
came into the world coughing
already full of mama’s disease

went back to a flat, with no gas, no cash
rapped in a duvet full of cigarette ash
mama can’t get no sleep
baby never quite get enough to eat

goes to school, learns to steal and fight
probably form a team with his friends
go steam those trains
fall in love and never trust n*body again
gets to work all week standing on the high street for joe
hustling blow

hustling blow
