Katy Perry – Chained To The Rhythm lyrics
[Verse 1: Katy Perry]
Are we crazy?
Living our lives through a lens,
Trapped in our white picket fence,
Like ornaments.
So comfortable, we're living in a bubble, bubble,
So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble.
Aren't you lonely,
Up there in utopia?
Where nothing will ever be enough?
Happily numb.
So comfortable, we're living in a bubble, bubble,
So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble.

[Pre-Chorus: Katy Perry]
So put your rose-colored glasses on,
And party on.

[Chorus: Katy Perry]
Turn it up, it's your favorite song,
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion.
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat,
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie.
Yeah, we think we're free,
Drink, this one is on me,
We're all chained to the rhythm,
To the rhythm, to the rhythm.
Turn it up, it's your favorite song,
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion.
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat.
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie,
Yeah, we think we're free,
Drink, this one is on me.
We're all chained to the rhythm,
To the rhythm, to the rhythm.

[Verse 2: Katy Perry]
Are we tone deaf?
Keep sweeping it under the mat.
Thought we could do better than that,
I hope we can.
So comfortable, we're living in a bubble, bubble,
So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble.

[Pre-Chorus: Katy Perry]
So put your rose-colored glasses on,
And party on.

[Chorus: Katy Perry]
Turn it up, it's your favorite song,
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion.
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat,
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie.
Yeah, we think we're free,
Drink, this one is on me,
We're all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm, to the rhythm!
Turn it up, it's your favorite song,
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion.
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat,
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie.
Yeah, we think we're free,
Drink, this one is on me,
We're all chained to the rhythm,
To the rhythm, to the rhythm!

[Bridge: Skip Marley]
It is my desire,
Break down the walls to connect, inspire.
Ay, up in your high place, liars,
Time is ticking for the empire.
The truth they feed is feeble,
As so many times before.
They greed over the people,
They stumbling and fumbling
And we're about to riot.
They woke up, they woke up the lions!
(Woo!)

[Chorus: Katy Perry]
Turn it up, it's your favorite song,
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion.
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat,
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie.
Yeah, we think we're free,
Drink, this one is on me.
We're all chained to the rhythm,
To the rhythm, to the rhythm!

[Outro: Katy Perry]
Turn it up
Turn it up
It goes on, and on, and on
It goes on, and on, and on
It goes on, and on, and on
'Cause we're all chained to the rhythm
