Basement Flat Lyrics

by Midnight Oil

Must be time for a second chance
I can't escape this basement flat
Writer's cramp and claustrophobia

Must be time for a second chance
I can't escape this basement flat
Writer's cramp and claustrophobia

Must be time for a better place
My sink leaks and the rats
Have won the race, over and over

Must be time for a new idea
Pack up my things, get away from here
They're never gonna trace me

People upstairs make so much noise
Drive me mad with their electrical toys
Louder and louder

What can I do?
There must be some solution
What can I do? Oh
There must be some solution

Must be time for a second chance
I can't escape this basement flat
Got writer's cramp and claustrophobia

Must be time for a better place
My sink leaks and the rats
Have won the race over and over

What can I do?
There must be some solution
What can I do?
There must be some solution
What can I do?
There must be some solution

Staying by rent outside, no radio out loud
No drinks, no friends, no animals
No TV set, no girlfriends there

That'll come down, just be around
[Incomprehensible]
And once they stop
