Factory Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

In passage of time
To a cigarette burn
In the book that I read
To the sentence I learn

Up and down, going round
Going round till we drown again
I'm gonna set myself up
I'm gonna up to the top

Up to the top to the top
I'm going down to the ground
Going round till we drown
Going round till we drown again

Factory
Imitation of life
Factory
We all go out to lunch

A certain rayon we know
Has left us unaware
Someone else has taken leave
Someone who did care

Elevators just don't crash
The answer lies within
Elevators, elevators
Answer lies within

To the glittering prize
To the fool in the sky
I've got a jewel in my eye

I'm going up coming down
Going round till we drown
Going round till we drown again

To the center of the man
Because he had a plan
He had a plan to escape
But now we've got it on tape

Going up, coming down
Going around
Going round till we drown again

Factory
Imitation of life
Factory
We all go out to lunch

A certain rayon we know
Has left us unaware
Someone else has taken leave
Someone who did care

Elevators just don't crash
The answer lies within
Elevators, elevators
Answer lies within

Factory
Going out to lunch
Factory
Going out to lunch
