lyrics

Getting A License


I feel an ocean coming over my emotional composure
And it won’t stop coming in
I took a taste from out of space
And now I’m wasted - face to face
With everyone I’ve ever been
Taking it all on one day
Sleeping it off ‘til Sunday
Saving the suit ‘til Monday arrives
I’m alive

Ooh oh ooh oh
But I’ll be getting a license
Ooh oh ooh oh
Yeah I’ll be getting a license
It’s what we do, the chosen few
And I’ll be getting a license, getting a license soon

This information keeps me stationery
Rooted to the ground – see how the walls are coming in
Escaping all this mess impossible – everything you know is wrong
Surprise, surprise – you’re on your own again
Taking it all on one day
Sleeping it off ‘til Sunday
Saving the suit ‘til Monday arrives
I’m alive

Ooh oh ooh oh
But I’ll be getting a license
Ooh oh ooh oh
Yeah I’ll be getting a license
It’s what we do, the chosen few
And I’ll be getting a license, getting a license soon

Ahhhhhh……. Ahhhhhh

Back to where it all begins
Strike the band and start again
And I’m gone
But I don’t know where I’ve been

Ooh oh ooh oh
And I’ll be getting a license
Ooh oh ooh oh
Yeah I’ll be getting a license
It’s what we do, the chosen few
And I’ll be getting a license, getting a license soon
