We begin
Choose ourselves
Looking good
In our car
The world waves
Ourselves so immense
A girl and a boy
Bigger than everyone

This is efficient living
This is efficient living
This is efficient living
Everyone

You're the one
Suits my plan
Work hard
It will come
Your day says
The sound fills the air
The music of us
Is bigger than stereo

This is efficient living
This is efficient living
This is efficient living
Everyone

But the days get long and I can't see through
And the days drag on and I hate you

This is efficient living
This is efficient living
This is efficient living
Everyone

    General CommentI don't know what exactly happened to Compulsion. They seemed to just fade away after the 2nd album. Shame. Love love love this song. The line "But the days get long..." is my favourite. I think it's pretty simple, charting a relationship from beginning to (difficult) end.
