Out on my motorbike around the ring road
Sulphur lights reflected off the water and
life looks better when it’s scrolling by

I’m in freefall it looks much cuter when you're
21 holding off the future
but the leather on my skin feels just the same

You seem surprised that I’m a little bit fractured

Oh we’ve had millennia of this kind of thing
Oh you know that’s why I’m a coiled spring
Summer fashion my blood starts to sing
Oh you know that’s why I’m a coiled spring

Nights I go out and if it’s starry I find
Arcturus, Vega, maybe Venus
and I pull myself back together in the dark

When the motor’s screaming’s when I do my thinking
There’s a stillness inside my mind
and all the clocks stop ticking for a while
