Song Description

Stomping electro-rock track from Worldview's "Our Condition" album. About being overlooked, rejected. Disillusionment, pessimism, being worn down. Full-length version also available. Written, performed and recorded by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

Remember when those dark clouds lifted
To offer you a bright new vista
The day had come to set your stall out
You'd got the goods to knock them all out

On a high of self-esteem
You were confidently waiting on the call
But the world thought differently
No the world it didn't think of you at all

You found no takers, no takers
You must have been so rudely awakened
No takers, no takers
You couldn't reach the movers and shakers
No takers, no takers
Peddling your wares will wear you out

To say you live and learn is quite true
But by the time you've learned your life's through
How could you know you'd end up worse off
By trying to mould it to some purpose?

Took you all that time to see
Hard work hardly enters into it at all
That the world works differently
No the world it didn't think of you at all

You found no takers, no takers
This world welcomes chancers and players
No takers, no takers,
We get on through fluke or through favours
No takers, no takers
Peddling your wares will wear you out

But none of this bothers me
Cos my eye's on posterity
And over time we will see
If hindsight's going to honour me
I'll be slow burning, for slow learners
Yeah some of my mud will stick
If I'm slow burning, for slow learners
Will I live to witness it?

No takers, no takers,
You never got to prove you're the greatest
No takers, no takers
You couldn't move those movers and shakers
No takers, no takers,
And they may get it sooner or later
But I'm jaded, hopes fading
Peddling these wares has worn me out
Peddling my wares has worn me out
Peddling your wares will wear you out
