Thinkman – The Formula lyrics

Sit back and relax
Sit back and relax, you're watching television in superb stereo
Well it's an interview but it's a second take
There's a questioner but your mind's at stake
It's a room designed for propaganda's sake
He's a rich man now, there's no escape (Sit back)
You can't take it where you're going, you can't take things where you are, you can't take 'em with you
You can't take it where you're going, you can't take things where you are, you can't take 'em with you
Let's break down the formula
Let's switch off the set
Let's break down the formula
Let's switch off the set and be glad we finally met

I could crash my car through your screen
I could take a match to your empire
And teach you how to dream, how to dream (?), how to dream (?), how to dream (?)

You open the door let me into your house
You show me how you cry, you tell me how you scream and how you watch when you're alone
You can't take it where you're going, you can't take things where you are, you can't take 'em with you
(Sit back and relax)
You can't take it where you're going, you can't take things where you are, you can't take 'em with you
Let's break down the formula
Let's switch off the set
Let's break down the formula
Let's switch off the set and be glad we finally met
Let's break down the formula (You can't take it where you're going, you can't take things where you are)
Let's switch off the set (You can't take 'em with you)
Let's break down the formula (You can't take it where you're going, you can't take things where you are)
Let's switch off the set (You can't take 'em with you)
Let's break down the formula
Let's switch off the set (You can choose any channel from your chair)
Let's break down the formula
Let's switch off the set (But I've got a better idea, tear up the guide, rip down the aerial)
You can't take it where you're going, you can't take things where you are, you can't take 'em with you
You can't take it where you're going, you can't take things where you are, you can't take 'em with you
Let's play real life, real life instead
Let's play real life, real life instead
Let's play real life, real life instead
Let's play real life, real life instead
Let's play real life, real life instead
Let's play real life

Let's break down the formula
Let's switch off the set

(Relax) Let's break down the formula

Let's play real life

(Sit back and relax) (Real life) You can't take it where you're going, you can't take things where you are, you can't take 'em with you (Let's switch off the set) (Real life) Take things where you are (Instead)? (Let's play) (Sit back and relax) Real life (Let's break down the formula) You can't take it where you're going, you can't take things where you are, you can't take 'em with you (Let's switch off the set) (Real life) Take things where you are (Instead)? (Let's play) (Sit back and relax) (Let's break down the formula) You can't take it where you're going, you can't take things where you are, you can't take 'em with you (Let's switch off the set) Take things where you are (Instead)? (Let's play) Sit back and relax, you're watching television in superb stereo
