Fooled around enough with numbers
Let's not be ourselves today
Is it my imagination
Is it just someone's face

Pleasantly out of proportion
It's hard to hold on to the ground
Now I didn't come to run and this is everything
And gravity lets you down

[Chorus:]
And I get wild wising up
I just can't let go
I get wild when I get ready
And I can hardly talk
Living lights special lights
Yellow turns to blue
And I get wild it's automatic
And I can hardly move

Go ahead and pull the curtains
Check to see if I'm still here
Let me lose my perspective
Something worth waiting for

Somewhere in South Carolina
And gravity don't mean a thing
And all around the world each and every one
Is playing with a heart of steel

And I get up climbing out
How did I get home?
I'll survive the situation
Somebody shut the door
Beautiful, beautiful
Climbing up the wall
I get by on automatic
No surprise at all

No one here can recognize you
Here is everything that you like
Feelings without explanations
Somethings are hard to describe
The sound of a cigarette burning
A place there where everything spins
And the sound inside your mind
Is playing all the time
Playing with a heart of steel

[Chorus]

And I get up, pushing up
How did I get home?
I'll survive the situation
Somebody shut the door
Shut the door, shut the door
Climbing up the wall
I get by on automatic
No surprise at all

[Chorus]
