Dark Dark Heart lyrics

In an office two miles underground
They can't tell night from day
Secretaries typing errors of judgement
In eternally full in-trays
Phones ring in, get put on hold
Well I'm just waiting for my nails to dry
I was coming unstuck with nothing to show
You stuck to him like felt on velcro

But now he's gone solo
He's taken all the amps, smashed the bedside lamp
Taken all the lightbulbs and the decorative wheelclamps
You got a dark dark dark heart
It's the heart of darkness
Now you live in a filing cabinet
You're another painful smiling face
What you had doesn't even have the grace
To be forgotten without a trace
It lies, it cheats, it moans, it bleats
Almost human in every detail
In this stinking room, no-one goes to bed
There's nothing to say that hasn't been said
It's not enough to wish you were dead
You had the last laugh but he didn't know why
He jumped out the window, man, he thought he could fly
You got a dark dark dark heart
It's the heart of darkness
