Magazine - Shot by Both Sides

The debut single from the album Real Life (1978) - though now appears on Maybe it's Right to be Nervous Now

This and that, they must be the same,
What is legal is just what's real,
What I'm given to understand is exactly what I steal.
I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd,
I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd,
I was shocked to find what was allowed,
I didn't lose myself... in the crowd.

Shot, shot... by both sides,
On the run, to the outside of everything.
Shot, shot... by both sides,
They must have come, to a secret understanding.

New offences always in my nerves,
They're taking my time by force,
They have to rewrite all the books again,
As a matter of course.
I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd,
I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd,
I was shocked to find what was allowed,
I didn't lose myself... in the crowd.

Shot, shot, by both sides
On the run, to the outside of everything.
Shot, shot... by both sides,
They must have come, to a secret understanding.

Why are you so edgy, kid?
Asks the man with the voice,
One thing follows another,
You live and learn and you have no choice.
I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd,
I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd,
I was shocked to find what was allowed,
I didn't lose myself... in the crowd.

I didn't lose myself in the crowd.
I didn't lose myself in the crowd.
I was shocked to find what was allowed,
I didn't lose myself... in the crowd.
I'm gonna worm my way,
I'm gonna worm my way,
I'm gonna worm my way,
I'm gonna worm my way,
I'm gonna worm my way,
I'm gonna worm my way,
I'm gonna worm my way,
I'm gonna worm my way,
Shot, shot, by both sides,
I don't ask who's doing the shooting.
Shot, shot, by both sides,
We must have come to a secret understanding.

{break}

We must have come to a secret understanding.
