What I'm really wanting,
A brand new machine
One for converting plastic to dreams
If you ride upon the tiger you can never get off
They get hungry

One thing is certain,
All the rest are lies
Beautiful and dammed ones
Never realize
That the dark is light enough to see the ignorance of greed
Still she cries

Come on come on get up
I wanna take you
Away from all of this
And what has got you Lost and feeling down
You just get it off your back,
Let it fly away

Poetry of motion
Counting out the beats
To hear a voice in every mind
Sounding out retreat
And as they run
They look behind
To see what tempts the wandering eye
Still she cries

Come on come on get up
I wanna take you
Away from all of this
And what has got you lost and feeling down
You just get it off your back,
Let it fly away

Trouble with the life of
The Emperor's new mind
Casual viewin' in spite of
What gets left behind
Gentlemen you may include me out,
Ladies please accept my bow
Still she cries

Come on come on get up
I wanna take you
Away from all of this
And what has got you Lost and feeling down
You just get it off your back,
Let it fly away

    General CommentThe way I interpret this song is it being about possessions, money and just material things all around ending up owning people and getting away from the things that own you in order to be free. It's a feel good song to me, that's just saying get loose and relax....Don't stress yourself out. I really like the line "That the dark is light enough to see the ignorance of greed", which to me suggests that no matter how self absorbed, depressed or bad things are for you....There's always a hint of what is positive in life, and what the right thing to do is.
