China Crisis Safe as Houses Lyrics

Safe as houses
Built on quicksand
Because I place my trust
In small town dreams
It's common on crooks
I know the strain of day to day
Busy, busy everybody
I've seen the strangest times
It's far from noticed
Busy, busy everybody
I know the strain of day to day

I shook of my world
But stood back in amazement
I saw the greatest of worlds
To be the cheapest attraction

Safe as houses
Built on quicksand
Because I don't compete
For nobody's place
Making any difference
I know the strain of day to day
Busy, busy everybody
If you could join me now
I would not want for anything or anyone

I shook of my world
But stood back in amazement
I saw the greatest of worlds
To be the cheapest attraction

Safe as houses
Built on quicksand
Because I waste my time
In backstreet dealings
Killing often, every time
I know the strain of day to day
Busy, busy everybody
I've seen the cruelest times
It's far from noticed
Busy, busy everybody
