oh no, how the thrill has gone
just age and carry on
hello, hello, hello, hello
we're sleeping like electric eels
and looking like a psyco
in a real good dream

oh lets go 'a the controls
we all want to be safe
safe in in magnetic fields
slowly floating still

where are we going?
hello, hello, hello, hello
we're sleeping like electric eels
and laughing at the psycho
in a real bad scene just like we are
we are science fiction wimps
thinking that we're real stunt pilots
that let go of controls

we all want to be safe
in magnetic fields
slowly floating still

    General CommentI don't understand why no one has commented on this song..its amazing. I think this song is about how these people kinda wanna live on the edge but don't really have the courage to do it.

    General Commentagreed, like you have this dream or something (aspiration not dream.. but whatever) and you just kinda keep floating thru life w/out attempting it
    i got some shitty version of the song that only has a minute of it but from what i've heard it's beautiful, as always to be expected from em:)
