("One, two, one two three four")

("You can turn it up even a little bit more")

It overtakes me
It overtakes me
It overtakes me
Oh
Wah

It overtakes me
It master-slaves me
It overtakes me
Oh

It overtakes me
It overtakes me
It overtakes me
Oh
Wah

It overtakes me
It wakes and bakes me
It overtakes me
Oh

(You know that it is unreal)

(You know that it is unreal)
("You'll disappear in a black hole")
(You know that it is unreal)
("Floating out of control")

It overtakes me
It overtakes me
It overtakes me
Oh
Wah

("Yeah!")

It overtakes me
It overtakes me
It overtakes me
Oh
Wah

It overtakes me
It master-slaves me
It overtakes me
Oh

(You know that it is unreal)
(You know that it is unreal)

It overtakes me
It overtakes me
It overtakes me
Oh
Wah

It overtakes me
It wakes and bakes me
It overtakes me
Oh

It overtakes me
It overtakes me
It overtakes me
It overtakes me
It overtakes me
It overtakes me
It overtakes me
Oh

And I'm there
Looking up at the sky
And I'm scared
Thinking 'bout the way that I,
I don't understand
Anything at all
And how it overtakes me
And I'm just so small

Do I stand a chance?
