Smoke

Smoke has been detected in the hall...

Smoke has been detected in the hall
Smoke has been detected in the hall
Smoke has been detected in the hall

Edward spent his monday morning bullying the team
All the words you're not supposed to say
He said them anyway.
Edward stopped for coffee and a malted milk at half-past ten
Doodled out some naked pictures of his finance team
He'd read creativity is good

Edward spent his lunchtime with his personal assistant
And wondering if she thought that he was handsome
He decided that she might
Like older men
Edward led a meeting in the boardroom after three
Told the team that times were hard times were hard
Tight smiles extra miles
We're going to need to cut some fat

And all the way through the working day
How's a man supposed to cut when he's so interrupted by people
And all the way he could hear them say
So many questions and questions suggestions and questions he never even saw the text that read
Smoke has been detected in the hall

And all of the photos he'd framed have all gone to ashes now
And all of the plans that he'd made have all gone to ashes now
And all of the dogs that he'd raised have all gone to ashes now
And everything he ever had has all gone to ashes now
Smoke has been detected in the hall
Smoke has been detected in the hall
Smoke has been detected in the hall
Smoke has been detected in the hall
