Getting up is easy
When you're first to get the message
That it's time to put your money
Where your mouth is today

But if your friends are all asleep
You've got pillows on your feet
Then your objectives will be lost
You will float on away

When the cavalry comes
You'll find us looking for a reason
To break down these walls and jump
When the cavalry comes
You'll find us looking for a reason
To show you the brave don't run, don't run

A proper cup of coffee
From a proper coffee shop
Was all I needed to get
A little purpose in life

Well the reasons are clear
My bearings aren't there
My compass points me in the
Wrong direction all night

But when the cavalry comes
You'll find us looking for a reason
To break down these walls and jump
When the cavalry comes
You'll find us looking for a reason
To show you the brave don't run, don't run

They said, I bet you'll never make it on your own
They said, I bet you'll never learn this, no no no no
They said, I bet you'll never get this, no no no no
No no no no, no no no no, no no...

When the cavalry comes
You'll find us looking for a reason
To break down these walls and jump
When the cavalry comes
You'll find us looking for a reason
To show you the brave don't run, don't run

(Layered)
When the cavalry comes, you'll find us looking for love
On every street-corner and circus in the city tonight

When the cavalry comes, you'll find us looking for trouble
With the jocks and the disciples of the new modern light
