Moons aligned as you were conceived
A moonflower in a startled sea
You caught hold of so many things
A current to the moon and you dug right in

You're dancing on your cord cuff
Pledged an oath to swallow your losses
You're swirling in the street dust
Cause the present is a gift that no one should give up

Move left, move right
But don't listen, but don't listen
You've got a voice like a hurricane system
So don't listen, no, don't listen
Move up, dream out
Don't listen, no, don't listen
You've got a voice like a fired flying missile
So don't listen, no, don't listen

Bridges fell in sweet release
But a moonflower hovered magically
You caught hold of an ancient thing
A channel to the earth, there was no need to dig

You're laughing in their handcuffs
Pledged a boycott of honest reflection
You're singing out the circus
I mean look what we inherited, how can they blame us?

Move left, move right
But don't listen, but don't listen
You've got a voice like a hurricane system
So don't listen, no, don't listen
Move up, dream out
Don't listen, don't you listen
You've got a voice like a fired flying missile
So don't listen, no, don't listen

Plug your ears, cover your eyes
Don't listen, don't you listen
They'll steal and supplant your every ambition
Don't listen, no, don't listen
You've only got one time
And you're missing, yeah, you're missing it
Take it back because it's not their decision
So don't listen, don't listen
