Australia (Live On Letterman)
Time to put ze earphones on!
La la la laaaaa!
La la la laaaaa!
La la la la
Born to... Born to multiply
Born to gaze into night skies
All you want's one more Saturday
Well look here, until then,
They're gonna buy your life's time
So keep your wick in the air and your feet in the fetters
'till the day...
They come in doing cartwheels
We all crawl out by ourselves
And your shape on the dance floor
Will have me thinking such filth and gouge my eyes
You'd be damned to be one of us, girl
Faced with the dodo's conundrum
I felt like I could just fly
But nothing happened every time I'd try
A duo-tone on the wall...
Selfless fool who hoped he'd save us all
Never dreamt of such sterile hands
You keep 'em folded in your lap,
Or raise them up to beg for scraps
You know he's holding you down
With the tips of his fingers just the same
Will you get pulled from the ocean
But just a minute too late?
Or changed by a potion
And find a handsome young mate for you to love?
You'll be damned to pining through the windowpanes
You know, you'd trade your life for any ordinary Joe
Well do it now or grow old
Your nightmares only need a year or two to unfold
You've been alone since you were twenty-one
You haven't laughed since January
You try and make like this is so much fun
But we know you to be quite contrary
La la la la la la la
Dare to be one of us, girl
Faced with the android's conundrum
I felt like I should just cry
But nothing happens every time I take one on the chin
You're Himmler in your coat
You don't know how long I've been
Watching the lantern dim
Starved of oxygen
So give me your hand and let's jump out the window
