I've got the hots for the sluts in the 
Well-thumbed pages of a magazine
I want to drive, want to fly like I do in the 
Dreams I've never really been in

Heat up and cool down in a dream machine

[repeat main pattern]

I drive like a priest and then I'm shooting lights
I'm burning tyres with some guy whose hair is turning white
I know the girls that I pass, they just ain't impressed
I'm too old to give up, but too young to rest

I've got that run-to-a-club, over-dubbed 
Feeling social when the world is sleeping
The plot starts to thicken, then I sicken and 
I feel like I'm cemented down
I'm so juiced that the whorey lady's 
Sad sad story has me quietly weeping
But here comes the dawning, 
Here comes the yawning demented clown

(I'm dreaming) but I know it's all hot air
(I'm dreaming) I'll get back to that rocking chair
(I'm dreaming) of the day when I can share the wealth
(I'm dreaming) dreaming of the day I can control myself
The day I can control myself
Hey, hey... the day I can control myself
