"The Pacemaker" as written by and Even Johansen....
Slow down the pace
I have never known me this out of place
If stupid acting dumb, is the shape of things to come
And I add up that sum
Then this is where I can't get back from

Take my hand, I will follow
Only you can slow this down
Take my hand, and I will mellow
Cos only you can hold me like a tourniquet
Make me stay, here with you

No ego left to bruise
At least there's something good in most bad news
I just don't want to cruise
With anyone of all the young dudes
Cos round for round
Only uncool will travel on gravel ground

So take my hand, I will follow
Only you can slow this down
Take my hand, and I will mellow
Cause only you can slow this down
You can slow this down

So take my hand, I will follow
Cos only you can slow this down
Take my hand, and I will mellow
Cos only you can hold me like a tourniquet
Make me stay, here with you

    General CommentPretty sure he actually sings "Take my hand and I will mellow" not "I will know".
    Such a lovely song.

    I think it's about the first bit of a relationship when you run around like a chicken with it's head cut off (as Magnetic Fields would have it).

    General CommentI think.. its about him meeting someone who's made him feel so much better.. more comfortable with life and peaceful and happy. And only that person can keep him straight.
