The Circus (Dave Powell Mix)

This song is by Erasure and appears on the album The Two Ring Circus (1987).

Call it new technology and they use it to burn and they show no concern
Work for their prosperity while the big wheels turn, now it's too late to learn

Don't upset the teacher
Though we know he lied to you
Don't upset the preacher
He's gonna close his eyes for you

And it's a shame
That you're so afraid
Just a worker waiting in the pouring rain
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream

Father worked in industry, now the work has moved on and the factory's gone
See them sell your history where once you were strong and you used to belong

There was once a future
For a working man
There was once a lifetime
For a skillful hand
Yesterday

And it's a shame
That you're so afraid
Just a worker waiting in the pouring rain
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream

There was once a future
For a working man
There was once a lifetime
For a skillful hand
Yesterday

And it's a shame
That you're so afraid
Just a worker waiting in the pouring rain
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream (broken dream)
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream

Of a broken, of a broken dream
