through a hole in the saddest soul
where nothing's better or worse
down a tube, swallowed like food
you sat around, broke it down
laugh and scream, you split a seam
shot through like blood into a dream
you woke up, no it's not true
you blink your eyes, go back inside
up and down a retired clown
got in his very small car and drove around
down a chute, you got the boot
and close your eyes, it's no surprise
where you goin', which way's the wind
who's that knockin' six in the mornin'
time is like a train
and our love is just the same
it's gonna go if we don't keep on runnin'
yes it's gonna go if we don't keep on runnin'
yes it's gonna go if we don't keep on
back and forth
the spoon and the fork
get up and go
he calls out your name, take the crown
spin around, dry your eyes
and put it down, laugh and scream
you split a seam
you leave it open for everyone to see
hello, hello i've gotta go
if you need to know
look out the window

    General Commentlyrics are a little off, but this song is pretty amazing...i'm not really sure what it's about? i'm guessing she's talking about a guy who's chasing after a girl. who knows. its a great sing-along.

    General Commentdown a chute, you got the boot...
    ....[& now you want the other one too,
    laugh & scream, you split a seam
    you mark you right, sew it back up]....
    ....and close your eyes, it's no surprise

    it's missing that part,.. but i'm not positive that the last line is right. :x

    Through a hole in the saddest soul
    where nothing's better or worse
    down a tube, swallowed like food
    you sat around, broke it down
    laugh and scream, you split a seam
    chop through like blood into a dream
    you woke up, no it's not true
    you blink your eyes, go back inside

    up and down a retired clown
    got in his very small car and drove around
    down a chute, you got the boot
    and now you want the other one too
    laugh and scream, you split a seam
    you mark your right, sew it back up
    close your eyes, it's no surprise
    where you goin', which way's the wind

    who's that knockin' six in the mornin'
    time's like a train
    and our love is just the same
    it's gonna go if we don't keep on runnin'
    yes it's gonna go if we don't keep on runnin'
    yes it's gonna go if we don't keep on

    back and forth
    the spoon and fork
    get up and go
    he calls out your name, take the crown
    spin around, dry your eyes
    and put it down,
    laugh and scream, you split a seam
    you leave it open for everyone to see
    hello, hello i've gotta go
    if you need to know
    look out the window

    and who's that knockin'
    two in the mornin'
    time's like a train
    and our love is just the same
    it's gonna go if we don't keep on runnin'
    yes, it's gonna go if we don't keep on runnin'
    yes, it's gonna go if we don't keep on

    time's like a train
    and our love is just the same
    it's gonna go if we don't keep on
