Back to the lyrics overview


I’m caught in the flow if things
My memory’s a broken machine
This is how my day begins
This is just one day unseen
Lets do it serpentine any time
Lets do it right here

It is bad that you’re good for me
Did I love you just randomly?
I’m caught in the flow of sound
And you’re just some melody

Let’s do it serpentine, any time
Let’s do it right here

There’s a cute little litany
Put it on my shoulder
Eight o’clock and we agree
It makes me look much older

Got my clockwork company
Got my dark green trenchcoat on
I’m sure it will always be
Someone staying and someone gone
