lyrics

You are here right now
I am not alone
whoever you are
I don’t really care
you lay down on the floor
and you ask for a massage
this place isn’t yours, no

It’s been the same mechanism
for a dozen years
some backs are smaller, some are wider
and ears at times wear rings
it’s been the same mechanism
for a dozen years
some hair is shorter, some is longer
some mouths whisper dirty things
oh yes, they do

You’re all white with body lotion
my hands slide up your back
I’m kissing your neck
we keep a slow but steady motion

It’s been the same mechanism
for a dozen years
some backs are smaller, some are wider
and ears at times wear rings
it’s been the same mechanism
for a dozen years
some hair is shorter, some is longer
some mouths whisper dirty things
oh yes, they do

You’re still here, but you'll be gone
and I’ll be wide awake
unable to sleep
at 2:15 a.m.
I know I will be scared
and I’ll wish the night away
for the loneliness to fade

Yet the band performs their material with the brightest smile and grin, which pretty much portrays the down- and the upside of life and everything. Melancholicious. Not exactly a walk in the park. ... more
