You take control of having what you want around you
And every blink of your eye can make an old man seem younger
Than every single day in his life before
You carried 'round his weight like it was yours to show the world
I'm kinda level-headed, too
But this loose lip of yours could sink Fifth Avenue
We all tried to share your point of view
Before we set the wheels in motion and launch into the ocean
All aboard the sinking ship is leaving
With all the secrets that you sold me, the ones without replies
All aboard, you better stop believing
We've only watered down the smallest town so we could multiply
I want a special meeting, too
With Captain Everyday of station Navy Blue
Now we all tried to share your point of view
But you've completely undermined us
And now I'm here to drop the line
Let's turn around
There's nobody around for miles
There's no one around
There's nobody around for miles
There's no one around
There's nobody around for miles
Sweep 'round and 'round
There's nobody around
We got a long way to go
We got a long, we got a long, we got a long
You take control of having what you want around you
And every blink of your eye can make an old man seem younger
Than every single day in his life before
You carried 'round his weight like it was yours to show the world
There's nobody around for miles
There's no one around
There's nobody around for miles
There's no one around
There's nobody around for miles
Sweep 'round and 'round
There's nobody around
We got a long way to go
We got a long, we got a long, we got a long
