lyrics

Round The Twist

Lift up your eyes, the dawn surprise
You chase the sun through perfect skies
To fall into a dream
Who can tell you what it means?
Who can tell you what it means?
Your life is never what it seems

In darkest woods the thrill’s still there
You run and shout without a care
You call it make believe
No-one is seeing what you see
You lie so perfectly
You lie so perfectly

Hey!
Do you notice?
Can you hear this?
Are you going round the twist?
Or is there something you have missed?

Hey!
Do you notice?
Can you feel this?
Are you going round the twist?
Or is there something that you miss?

You throw the book, you raise the blade
You look towards your masquerade
And all the mess you made
Towards the sin that you purveyed
Oh if only you’d behaved

The distance of your chemical stare
The way you treat the ones who care
You’re sinking in despair
Oh but it’s not really fair
You’re gonna need some help down there

Hey!
Do you notice?
Can you hear this?
Are you going round the twist?
Or is there something you have missed?

Hey!
Do you notice?
Can you hear this?
Are you going round the twist?
Give us back the one we miss.
