Lyric "Meanwhile, Back In The Real World..."

Last night, what could it mean
In a dream I was at sea
And I was dragged off to drown from the gantry
By kids that looked just like me
As we sank to the depths of the deep
We discussed how
We could be living in utopia now
But no one else could hear a sound

Gee whizz, does this mean a streak of piss
To anyone or anybody else?

Meanwhile back in the real world
There's a girl who lives on my street
Doesn't have any shoes on her feet
Meanwhile back in the real world
There's a million things that we could shout about

Tonight there's a boy in a mask in a fist-fight
Against a skin-head in braces
The whole sight was like a retro sideshow
Although I took my part in the panto so proudly
I must have screamed "he's behind you!" so loudly
I couldn't quite tell friend from foe

Gee whizz...

Meanwhile back in the real world
Saw her standing on the main road
Flagging cars in the freezing cold
Meanwhile back in the real world
There's a million things that we could shout about

Hold up, I hate to mither you while you're so dressed up
Maybe the rays from the screen got you messed up
You must be pissed off mister
If you believe the price of a shirt at a punk night
Is worth a half of your life on a website
Putting the world to rights

Meanwhile back in the real world
Someone's lying in a bathtub
Water's red and she won't wake up
Meanwhile back in the real world
There's a million things that we could shout about
