It's all in motion
No stoppin' now
I've got nothin' to lose
And only one way up

I'm burning bridges
I destroy the mirage
Oh, visions of collisions
Fuckin'bon voyage

It's all smooth sailing
From here on out

I got bruises and hickies
Stitches and scars
Got my own theme music
It plays wherever I are

Fear is the hand
That pulls your strings
A useless toy
Pitiful play thing

It's all smooth sailing
From here on out
I'm gon' do the damage
That was getting done

God only knows
Where love vacations
If reason is priceless
There's no reason to pay for it

It's so easy to see
And so hard to find
Make a mountain of a mole hill
And the mole hill is mine

I hypnotize you
And no one can find you
I blow my load
Over the status quo
Here we go

I'm a little bit nonchalant
But I dance
I'm risking it always
No second chance

It's gonna be smooth sailing
From here on out
I'm gon' do the damage
'Til the damage is done

God only knows
So mind your behavior
Follow prescriptions
Of your bloated savior

Every temple is gold
Every hook is designed
Hell is but the temple
Of the closed mind
Closed mind
Closed mind
Closed mind

It's all smooth sailing
From here on out

    Love this song. The whole album has a deeper feel to anything that's gone before. Introspective, cynical, and a little bit hurt is the feeling I get from it. I know nothing about Josh Homme's personal life but it sounds like he's been doing some thinking. There's a sense of loss here and of facing up to the reality of life. Not everything that goes around comes back around you know.

    As f_ck_d as the last year has been, Homme's got it right with this one. It can only be smooth sailing from here, buddy.
