Let It Go

The Belly Of The Beast

Pierce Campbell
written by Pierce Campbell


A song about CT and commuting for a living.


Take the train every morning Leave the house at five, get in at 8:09 Grab a coffee, fold the paper Take another sip, read one more line It's always a rush in the morning and no-one ever talks Caught in the current on the sidewalk chorus Yes I'm livin' in the belly of the beast I've always followed the signs Yes I'm livin' in the belly of the beast It's such a good friend of mine Always thought of leaving the city But I come back here every day Dreamt of owning my own business Funny how dreams slip away Lost control of my life so many years ago This is all that I know A watch a handshake and a pension Not much to show for forty years But I made choices I could live with Lord knows I'll not shed any tears
