    LYRICS

    Tick-tock, tick-tock, the clock is counting down
    We’ve come to the end if there’s no other way round
    Could it be that we’ve been dreaming and had it wrong?
    Could it be that we’ve been on to something all along?

    A shot in the dark falls foul of the laws of the jungle
    You’re back to square one, you’ve seen the whole life cycle
    Strayed off the beaten path, entered a foreign land
    Been waltzing together, but dancing in quicksand

    Chorus:
    Well we flew to New York City with nothing to lose
    Hello Chicago, we’re here to hear some blues
    Been on the run to Houston, laying down our songs, said
    Thank God Los Angeles welcomed us with open arms, they did

    On your own with a microphone staring at your feet
    You need a reservation to get in you can’t just walk in off the street
    You may find redemption on a lonely path to ruin
    Just so they can say there go some crazy, but righteous men

    Shunned by the bright lights of a tired talent show
    Whilst in this place forget what it is that you think you know
    Every song has its moment, like every dog has its day
    You learn it’s hard at times to even get out of your own way

    Chorus

    This crazy telemetry, this sidewalk poetry
    This terrible analogy of a poor man’s philosophy
    This singular lack of empathy, this deep- rooted conspiracy,
    This clear daylight robbery, won’t someone enlighten me?

    Strayed off the beaten path, entered a foreign land
    Been waltzing together, but dancing in quicksand

    Chorus
