[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
