Kongos – Take Me Back lyrics

I talk of six while forgetting five
Can't even taste if my food's alive
I'm watching music that I can't hear
Staring down some invisible fear

And once again the question's asked
I answer yes! But the moment's passed
I'm guess I'm always tomorrow-bound
How many more till I'm underground?

Oh oh I remember now
Too far below to turn around
Too bright a light to let go now
Take me back my friend
Take me back back on home

Now what I'm saying is nothing new
This repetition's right on cue
A wise man said you're amused to death
Too much talk - too much wasted breath

You're overjoyed and over-fed
Over-sexed - you're almost dead
Gotta work gotta stay awake
God I'm tired can I take a break
