lyrics

I GUESS IT DON’T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS
(Bridie)

I sit at the window and I can’t see a thing
We’re not looking closely we’re just giving in
When they spin the wheel of fortune we all clap and dance
And we drink and we laugh and we sing
It’s a hope we hang on to dearly
The chances of winning are grim

And I guess it don’t get much better than this
All the time I feel fine
Do we settle for some ordinary bliss
All the time I don’t mind

This little country it’s little again
We never caught on to the old vision thing
But we’re fools if we sit back and stare at the ground
While the weasels and analysts sing
If we want our place in history
We can’t let the frustration drive us to fashionable drinking again

And I guess it don’t get much better than this
All the time I don’t mind
Do we settle for some ordinary bliss
All the time I don’t mind

It’s all in the family well it must be if they say
I’ll take the pills on the couch and then sleep it away
We all fake it in fine style we’ve still got our pride
And we talk and act tough like we win
The way that we keep our heads up
While they’ve been stripping away every gain that we’ve made
Oh it’s much too easy

And I guess it don’t get much better than this
All the time I feel fine
Do we settle for some ordinary bliss
All the time I don’t mind

My Friend The Chocolate Cake Melbourne, Australia

Their name alone should have ensured a quiet life. No one dreamed of ARIA awards, two years of sold-out Edinburgh Festival dates or the kind of ageless and eternally devoted audience. Somewhere within the unlikely union of kitchen sink piano tales, vivid chamber orchestration and hell-raising instrumental shenanigans, the Melbourne band has carved out a 20 year, seven album history. ... more
