I never thought that I'd be the one
To say I've had enough
Yeah
I've opened up my closet and the skeletons are catching up
I'm waiting for my chance to bail
But the goddamn ship set sail
I know without a doubt, that I want out
But there's not a chance in hell

Time to admit it, a man's got a limit
Going through the motions
I've hit the bottom, lost and forgotten
Going through the motions
My minds about to overload
It's time I'll be sad to blow
Then we'll be going through the motions
Go Go Go
Hey

10 minutes later and finally I've got it up
You know that somethings wrong when you've begun to gather dust*
So what's the point in aiming tall
When your guaranteed to fall
My reflections crack
And looking back it's all recognizable

Time to admit it, a man's got a limit
Going through the motions
I've hit the bottom, lost and forgotten
Going through the motions
My minds about to overload
It's time I'll be sad to blow
Then we'll be going through the motions
Go Go Go

[break]

Going through the motions
Going through the motions
Going through the motions
Going through the motions
Going through the motions
Going through the motions
Going through the motions
Going through the motions
Going through the motions
Going through the motions
Going through the motions

Whoa!

Time to admit it
A mans got a limit
Oh, I've hit the bottom, lost and forgotten
Going through the motions
My minds about to overload
It's time I'll be so sad to blow

And we'll be going through the motions
Going through the motions
Going through the motions
Going through the motions
Going through the motions
Going through the motions
Going through the motions

    This song is awesome! :)
    My crush's fave song! Lolz!
    He found it through me!
    Because i'm a massive mcfly fan, he said to me on the bus one day " what are you listening to? " and i said " you won't know them, but a band called mcfly". He said " here's a mcfly song ( shine a light) are you listening to that? "
    Of course the answer was no, so he asked what song it was and i told him it was going through he motions on their 3rd album. He asked if he could listen ( which meant i sat next to him for about 30 minutes as he wanted to here some more and then he said i love this song it's my fave!
