Use your intuition
It's all you've got
Keys are revving
There's a dozen locks
Standing your way
So goes the gold age
To your entire life

Grab a path from all the things they sell
But they don't let go
Just touch your shin bone
Keep them away

I know what I know
But nothing will fill the hole
So let your mind go (let my mind go)
Straight down the runway
Does one want to
Get more used to?
The mall and misery (the mall and the misery)
The dead mouths it costs to be alive

Oh she lies half burning
From the batting crows
You're falling like a lamb
What you've never been told
There's a new world
Somewhere a good girl
Lives and breathes

Part of her opened the callow mind
Audio has stolen the morning tide
There's a dark time
This is a dark life
Feel your heart

I know what I know
But nothing will fill the hole
So let your mind go (let my mind go)
Straight down the runway
Does one want to
Get more used to?
The mall and misery (the mall and the misery)
The dead mouths it costs to be alive
