    Lyrics

    I'm told the eventual downfall
    is just a bill from the restaurant.
    You told me I could order the moon, babe,
    just as long as I shoot what I want.

    What the last ten minutes have taught me:
    bet the hand that your money's on.
    Where the hell have the '70s brought me?
    You trade me away long gone.

    For the love of a god, you say,
    not a letter from an occupant.

    The time that your enemy gives you,
    good times are not the ones you want.
    I cried five rivers on the way here,
    which one will you skate away on?

    The tune you'll be humming forever,
    all the words are replaced and wrong,
    with a shower of yeahs and whatevers,
    you trade me away long gone.

    For the love of a god, you say,
    not a letter from an occupant.

    Where have all the sensations gone? (x4)
    It's the song, the song, the song that's shaking me.
