( moonshake )

When you're off-kilter and the world it makes no sense
When you spy intruders at your first line of defence

Switch into deep neutral
Drop everything you know
Switch into deep neutral
And everything goes

When everyone's so uptight their laces are undone
Keep taking the tablets, keep the darkness on the run

If you switch into deep neutral
Your consumer choice is made
Switch into deep neutral
And the competition fades

In a deep neutral state there's no race to be won
There's nothing to do cause there's nothing to be done

Switch into deep neutral
Say "that's the way it goes"
Switch into deep neutral
And everything flows

When I make a small commitment, that's when I get the fear
I up the dose of neutral, it's the only legal gear
The cost of living's so dear

Switch into deep neutral
Drop everything you know
Switch into deep neutral
And anything goes

Talking to my best friend, she said that she was going to die
I said "living is for losers, so there's no need to cry"

Switch into deep neutral
As you hit the endless night
Slide along the tunnel
To the distant wheel of light
