He's brilliant but he's wasting away.
Not making the best of his gifts
he's strayed away.
He wants to grow up and not give in.
The fighting's hard but the chance is thin.
This is where his brilliance kicks it.


Turn off your alarm clock.
Take off your watch.
Time has taken flight through the nearest window.
Turn off your inhibitions.
They serve as a restriction.
Lock the window.
Keep the breeze in.
Keep time out.

verse 2 - scatting

So have a seat.
Take this impression down and leave it in your knees.
Shake shake.
Watch yourself go.
Take a bit of time to watch yourself.
Watch yourself go. x3
