lyrics

Lay back for me
You are just exactly what I need
In this cold town

Lay back for me
The three of us in circus and in liberty
It’s been too long

So throw your guilt religion
To the liars and the weak
This is the politics and war of ecstasy
And all the nonsense of that vision
That is failing every test
Is the comedy and death of your senses

The alternative to real world
Is just time for me and a fantasy
Be blind to myself to idolise
The alternative to real world
Is just time for me and a fantasy
I’m blind to myself to idolise

You work so deep
Astonished and in rapture
I can barely speak
These are hard times
Hormones in key
A slow whispered wet confession
From our body heat
There’s no return

The alternative to real world
Is just time for me and a fantasy
Be blind to myself to idolise
The alternative to real world
Is just time for me and a fantasy
I’m blind to myself to idolise
