Those seducers [4x]
Bombed out lovers, gallant red flocks of mellow seducers, fine [find?] eager seekers, deep deef down
Beautiful lines from above and we're all a-glow
Raise her head and things get warm, hold on to its leg, before it flies away
Sun lit walks, I feel no harm, my primitive words match my primitive heart [hide?]

it's not as easy as it may seem, remember that yourself is steam

[chorus] and of course it don't mind, chasing a bee inside a jar [x2]

Then like sheep led to sacrifial slaughter, they don't mind, but they oughta, all the time (they oughta)
Their pretty shells are so inviting, well protected
Their eyes are rivers, they give me shivers

[chorus]

it's not time for the real life [live?] sign, it's not time for these fears of mine [x2]
I'm feeling troubled, I'm feeling trapped, can't shake that bubble off my back

it's not as easy as it may seem, remember that yourself is steam [x2]

it's not time for the real life sign, it's not time for these fears of mine
I'm feeling troubled, I'm feeling trapped, can't shake that bubble off my back
I feel no harm, I feel no harm, ...feel no harm

[chorus]

its not as easy as it may seem, remember that yourself is steam

what once was lost will never be found, keep spinning in circles until you break new ground
