lyrics

I’m in the pocket, I’m lit like a rocket
And I’m looking for the place we should go
And they used to provide it now you have to buy it
So we’re thinking: “Any port in a storm”

And no one ever thought I would give it up for free
We will get to the deepest need tonight
I wanna be inside it when the crowd goes wild

Idling: Let the world spin round
On me: And everything go down
Baby: rest assured that I don’t belong here

So push it again, step right up to the ledge
and never wonder worry how you get down
Such a lucrative scheme, such a fleeting release
With all the bodies that have littered the ground

And sure we could say “No” to the pleasurable machine
But why would we bite the hand that feeds? Oh no
We’re mounting up the horse and its around we go

Idling: Let the world spin round
On me: And everything go down
Baby: rest assured that I don’t belong here
Idling: like a love gone south
On me: when there is no way out
Baby: and everything that I know if wrong here

And it seems like a waste of time
For heart, head, and soul, and mind
For we are the young who have walked in circles

And every now and then I feel I sometimes get it right
But it descends to the animal inside
Watching as my body’s taken for a ride
