lyrics

I was a modern dreamer
she bright but conservative
I know it now
I made enough to see her
she made enough to live
I know it now
I wanted to be anywhere but here
just need to find where that is

made love and sound investments
but in the lift one night
I know it now
she said, ‘feel bound by a common logic
footloose and otherwise’
I know it now
'I wanted to feel something more obscene
I mean sometimes I wake up already bored with my dreams'

always you’re so certain that it’s always working
that someone is somewhere plucking
on the strings hooked into your heart

so we covered the car up with branches
stripped off set fire to the fences
stole the streets with the moon as our compass
discovered stars were always above us
I saw your face when we stopped at a stream
it seemed lit but not from the TV
this one was ours I know it now

always you’re so certain, that it’s always working
that someone is somewhere plucking
on the strings hooked into your heart
stripped of stories
plain and performing
its naked ancient function
naive possessed of nothing
