Suck in, blow out
The same air in the same town
Oh it goes on and on and on and on
Gaze out, double glaze in
Heavy eyelids keep my thoughts in
Oh it goes on and on and on and on and on but...

Meanwhile in Hollywood
Oh this world’s over you know
And in suburbia
Oh this world’s over you know
But then I guess what would I know?

Is there anyone else out there?
Have a moment to themselves
While they’re stacking some shelves
In the new complex
Yes, we’re all impressed by your brand new multi-storey car park
and state of the art shopping mall

(Mark II) You’re oh oh oh
(Comfortable) You’re oh oh oh
(Respectable) And you’re oh oh oh

We still suck in, blow out
The same air in the same town
Oh it goes on and on and on and on
Gaze out, double glaze in
Heavy eyelids keep my thoughts in
Oh it goes on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on and on but...

Meanwhile in Hollywood
Oh this world’s over you know
And in suburbia
Oh this world’s over you know
But then I guess what would I know?

You have gotta have dreams
And they tear at the seams
Like sleeves with leaves and LSD
So your mind can explode
You’re hired by a bigger, better man than yourself

(Mark II) You’re oh oh oh
(Comfortable) You’re oh oh oh
(Respectable) And you’re oh oh oh

We still suck in, blow out
The same air in the same town
Oh it goes on and on and on and on
Gaze out, double glaze in
Heavy eyelids keep my thoughts in
Oh it goes on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on and on but...

Meanwhile in Hollywood
And in suburbia
Meanwhile in Hollywood
And in the Middle East

It goes on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on
And on and on and on but...

Meanwhile in Hollywood
Oh this world’s over you know
And in suburbia
Oh this world’s over you know
But then I guess what would I know?

If you love them, let them go

    General CommentI think it's "marketing" rather than Mark II. Other than that I think you have it spot on.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure a couple of things need correcting:
    "Gaze out, double glazing"

    "Meanwhile in Hollywood
    all is well so you know
    and in Suburbia
    all is well so you know" etc.

    "(Marketed) Ghetto - oh - oh"

    I think these are right, quality song xx
