About This Album

Lyrics

  • The Reflex

    [Verse 1]
    You've gone too far this time
    But I'm dancing on the Valentine
    I tell you somebody's fooling around
    With my chances on the danger line

    I'll cross that bridge when I find it
    Another day to make my stand, oh woah
    High time is no time for deciding
    If I should find a helping hand, oh woah

    [Refrain]
    Oh, why don't you use it?
    Try not to bruise it
    Buy time, don't lose it
    Oh, why don't you use it?
    Try not to bruise it
    Buy time, don't lose it

    [Chorus]
    The reflex is a lonely child, who's waiting by the park
    The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
    And watching over lucky clover, isn't that bizarre?
    And every little thing the reflex does
    Leaves you answered with a question mark

    [Verse 2]
    I'm on a ride, and I want to get off
    But they won't slow down the roundabout
    I sold the Renoir and TV set
    Don't wanna be around when this gets out

    [Refrain]
    So, why don't you use it?
    Try not to bruise it
    Buy time, don't lose it
    Oh, why don't you use it?
    Try not to bruise it
    Buy time, don't lose it

    [Chorus]
    The reflex is a lonely child, he's waiting in the park
    The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
    And watching over lucky clover, isn't that bizarre?
    And every little thing the reflex does
    Leaves an answer with a question mark

    [Instrumental Break]

    [Refrain]
    So, why don't you use it?
    Try not to bruise it
    Buy time, don't lose it
    Oh, why don't you use it?
    Try not to bruise it
    Buy time, don't lose it

    [Chorus]
    The reflex is a lonely child who's waiting by the park
    The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
    And watching over lucky clover, isn't that bizarre?
    And every little thing the reflex does
    Leaves me answered with a question mark

    Oh, the reflex, what a game, he's hiding all the cards
    The reflex is in charge of finding treasure in the dark
    And watching over lucky clover, isn't that bizarre?
    And every little thing the reflex does
    Leaves you answered with a question mark

  • You've done it all, you've broken every code
    And pulled the rebel to the floor
    You spoilt the game, no matter what you say
    Only metal, what a bore!

    Blue eyes, blue eyes
    How come you tell so many lies?
    Come up and see me, make me smile
    Or do what you want, running wild

    There's nothing left, all gone and run away
    Maybe you'll tarry for a while
    It's just a test, a game for us to play
    Win or lose, it's hard to smile

    Resist, resist
    It's from yourself, you have to hide, oh

    So come up and see me to make me smile, oh
    Or do what you want, running wild

    There ain't no more, you've taken everything
    From my belief in Mother Earth
    How can you ignore my faith in everything
    'Cause I know what faith is and what it's worth

    Away, away
    And don't say maybe you'll try

    To come up and see me to make me smile
    Or do what you want running wild

    Come up and see me, make me smile
    Or do what you want, running wild
