I've got myself
In a masochestic hold
Why don't you let go
Shake it off but
Just to redirect my flow
Come on let's go

Sit up straight
I'm on a double date
I've got to find my way
Into the light, heavy, middle weight
We don't stop for rock around the clock
Motor mouthing off
In front of every other road block

Come again and tell me
What you're going through
Like a girl who only knew
Her child was due

Memories of everything
On lemon trees on Mercury and
Come to me with remedies
From five or six of seven seas and
You always took me with a smile
When I was down
Memories of everything
That blew through

Looking up into
A reverse vertigo
What an undertow
Give it up
Another stubborn Scorpio
Come on, let's go

Sit up straight
I'm on a double date
I've gotta find my way
Into the light, heavy, middle weight
We don't stop for rock around the clock
Motor mouthing off
In front of every other road block

Come again and tell me
What you're going through
Like a girl who only knew
Her child was due
To the moon she gave another good review
Turn around and look at me
It's really really you

Memories of everything
On lemon trees on Mercury and
Come to me with remedies
From five or six of seven seas and
You always took me with a smile
When I was down
Memories of everything
That blew through

Sit up straight
I'm on a double date
I've gotta find my way
Into the light, heavy, middle weight
We don't stop for rock around the clock
Motor mouthing off
In front of every other road block

(2x)
Memories of everything
On lemon trees on Mercury and
Come to me with remedies
From five or six of seven seas and
You always took me with a smile
When I was down
Memories of everything
That blew through
