The powers that be
That force us to live like we do
Bring me to my knees
When I see what they've done to you
But I'll die as I stand here today
Knowing that deep in my heart
They'll fail to ruin one day For making us part
A Top five song for the Pretenders back in 1983, "Back On The Chain Gang" is such a depressing tune, but with a great dance hall style beat. The words read as though even when you succeed in love (which is definitely not a given in this song), it still feels like way too much work to deal with it. Makes you wonder why anyone would fall in love?
