You have always got to move
You'll always try to prove
That there is something new
In everything you do

You are mostly in your car
You always seem so far
No matter where you are
You're thinking of your car

And everything you say
Is really just a play
For you to get your way
And I found out yesterday
That no matter what you say
And no matter what you do
That you have got to move

*Chorus*
*You have always got to move*
*You're racing just to prove*
*That there is something new*
*In everything you do*

You are mostly on the phone
You say you're coming home
You say you're all alone
But I know you're not alone

And everything you say
Is really just a play
For you to get your way
And I found out yesterday
That no matter what you say
And no matter what you do
That you have got to move

*Chorus X4*

    My InterpretationOne reason I like CAKE so much is because the lyrics aren't always from the lead singer's male perspective. The part beginning with "You are mostly on the phone" reflects the age-old neglected wife and cheating husband.

    This song could also be about the kind of people who spend their lives running. Whether it's towards or away from something, the stationary person in the relationship eventually realizes.
