He's pleased to meet you underneath the horse
In the cathedral with the glass stained black
Singing sweet high notes that echo back

To destroy their master
May be a long time 'til you get the call-up
But it's sure as fate and hard as your luck

No one will know where you are
It's just a brief smile crossing your face
I'm running speed trials standing in place

When the socket's not a shock enough
You little child what makes you think you're tough?
When all the people you think you're above

They all know what's the matter
You're such a pinball yeah you know it's true
There's always something you come back running to

To follow the path of no resistance
It's just a brief smile crossing your face
I'm running speed trials standing in place
It's just a brief smile crossing your face
I'm running speed trials all over the place

Songwriters
SMITH, STEVEN P.
