Silver Spoon

On a mountain side
All the things you took for granted
Gone in one fell swoop

And when a front suspension failure left you paralysed from the neck down
You got to see how brutal life can be
Cos you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth
And now it’s gone in the blink of an eye

Who can explain why privileged young men break their bodies?
Is the good life grey?

And when a glacial erratic left you paralysed from the neck down
You got to see how fickle fate can be
Cos you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth
And now it’s gone in the blink of an eye

When you’re paralysed you get to see how brutal life can be
And if you want me to take that spoon from your mouth
Then let me know with a blink of your eyes
