Friends in High Places

I’ve got friends in high places
I could really use their influence
Cos when you’re tired of being trapped in a cul-de-sac
They’ve what it takes to make the difference
A virtuous life lets you sleep at night but then for that there’s always benylin
And as it turns out tonight I’ve an appetite for an injection of adrenalin
 
A lift awaits to take me to the twenty-second floor
Where the fortunes of the few make misery for many more
 
I’ve got friends with sly faces
Dare you step into the dragon’s den?
Where a shake of the hand and a payment plan
Are going to sort you out right there and then
I want to look down on this cut throat town instead of feeling insignificant
And there are people I know who seem the way to go
With what it takes to make the difference
 
A lift awaits to take me to the twenty-second floor
Where the fortunes of the few make misery for many more
 
In twenty seconds time I will be knocking at the door
And Fortune’s wheel will turn tonight for now and evermore
