Upstairs they have begun to sweep the floors
and night begins to speak of possibilities, silence promises

The city's full of storylines,
do I have to sing those rhymes?
Those possibilities, broken promises

Take away your easy jokes and leave me with the monkeys
I know every place to go and will not go for pennies

They talk to me on every screen
someone's always calling me
Is this a movie scene,
a movie moving scene?

My back is turned
against the call,
I drop my keys and kiss the floor
countless are the roads from here
but my heart is nowhere

    Lyric CorrectionThere are some parts where I think the words slightly differ. But maybe I have a different version, so here's what I hear:

    Upstairs they have begun to sweep the floors
    the night begins to speak of possibilities, silence, promises

    city's full of storylines,
    do I have to sing those rhymes?
    possibilities, broken promises

    Take away your easy jokes and leave me with the monkeys
    I know every place to go, but will not go for pennies

    talk to me on every screen
    someone's always calling me
    Is this a movie scene,
    a moving movie scene?

    My back is turned
    against the car,
    I draw my keys and kiss the floor
    countless are the roads from here
    but my heart is nowhere
