He calls and you heel. While you stare he steals
And then talks in terms of salvation – All in good time, all in good taste.
And now you’re broken, sets in motion wheels within wheels,
Wheels within wheels. Wheels within wheels. Wheels within wheels

We know and you’re so young. Come on. Come on.
You say he’s just a friend. You keep your peace of mind bitter to the end.
Come on. Come on. Come on let it out. Let it out.
From the bottomless pit of my heart, from the murky depths of my soul
I’m asking you to give me a start. I’m telling you to let us go.
You paint us all so black.

He smiles, we all laugh. That smile – it’s a photograph.
And we talk when we are told to, talk in good faith, all in good taste.
The constant winding, binding, grinding wheels within wheels,
Wheels within wheels. Wheels within wheels. Wheels within wheels

We know and you’re so young. Come on. Come on.
You say nobody cares and there you’re wrong again and everybody cares.
Come on. Come on. Come on let it out. Let it out.
From the bottomless pit of my heart, from the murky depths of my soul
I’m asking you to give me a start. I’m telling you to let us go.
You paint us all so black.
