Someone's always on my tracks 
In a dark room you see more than you think 
I'm out of my place, got to get back
I sweated a lot, you could feel the violence 

I've got shears pointed straight at my chest 
And time moves slow when you count it
I'm better than them, and I think I'm the best
But I'll appear at midnight when the films close

'Cause I'm in a trance 
And I sweat 
I don't want to dance 
I want to go home

I couldn't live in those peephole places 
They might get to know my actions 
I'd run away from toilets and faces 
I'd run away to a non-date on the street 

 Cause I'm in a trance 
And I sweat 
I don't want to dance 
I want to go home

I feel trapped by mutual affection
And I don't know how to use freedom 
I spend hours looking sideways
To the time when I was sixteen 

 Cause I'm in a trance 
I'm frightened  Amphetamine frightened

I go to the top of the street 
I go to the bottom of the street 
I look to the sky, my lips are dry
