This was killing me for years when I was a single man, and now that I'm married, it's turned into a bit of a hot debate between me and my wife... Won't give any hints either way in case it sways you...

But please, could anyone help with the lyrics to Sick Pay in the middle eight?

?????
Out here on the reservations
And you know it's not exactly clear
Who's out there, and what's the destination

Anyone? Richard??

"Uncertainty bores us out here" is my take on it...

These are the lyrics as posted on YT by someone who covers the song (could still be wrong though)

We’ll get by on my sick pay
And the shelter of each other
Do not disturb signs hung on every wall
And the paying guests will shuffle quietly down the hall

And one of these days I will fall in love again
And one of these days you’ll find you call me baby now
Baby now, baby now, baby now

We’ll get old or get even
And suffer longing looks in cold winters
Out on the borders where hopes and parody
Plays it’s tricks on you while you play tricks on me
And one of these days I will fall in love again
And one of these days you’ll find you call me baby now
Baby now, baby now, baby now

Long term divorces out here
Out here on the reservations
And you know it’s not exactly clear
Who’s out there and what’s the destination


And one of these days I will fall in love again
And one of these days you’ll find you call me baby now

Baby now, baby now, baby now, baby now, baby now, baby now, baby now

Maybe we still got a shelf life

''Uncertainty forced us out here'', maybe?

Damn. These are all good. Some of them were in the mix before, some not. Uncertainty forced us out here is the leader. Hadn't thought of that before. The question still lingers...
