Transport, motorways and tramlines
Starting and then stopping
Taking off and landing
The emptiest of feelings
Disappointed people clinging on to bottles
And when it comes it’s so, so disappointing

Let down and hanging around
Crushed like a bug in the ground
Let down and hanging around

Shell smashed, juices flowing
Wings twitch, legs are going
Don’t get sentimental
It always ends up drivel
One day, I am gonna grow wings
A chemical reaction
Hysterical and useless
Hysterical and…
Let down and hanging around
Crushed like a bug in the ground
Let down and hanging around

Let down and hanging around
Let down and hanging around
Let down and hanging around

You know, you know where you are with
You know where you are with
Floor collapsing, falling, bouncing back
And one day, I am gonna grow wings
A chemical reaction [You know where you are]
Hysterical and useless [You know where you are]
Hysterical and [You know where you are]
Let down and hanging around
Crushed like a bug in the ground
Let down and hanging around
