lyrics

So the battle has been fought but it seems you’ve just forgot?
So let me save you let me save you
I will smash this palisade between tomorrow and today
Cos the little frown upon your face is based on the fear of being a disgrace

Today, but not today, until it all just turns out right
I hope the truth just doesn’t bite

You’re 25 you’re 32 you’re 54 I’d still love you
But that don’t matter, cos I’m not here to review
I could’ve been the one who knew you know just the one who wants to screw you
So push me away push me away and I’ll say thank you cos I feel I have to

Run away just run away until it all just turns out right
I hope the truth just doesn’t bite
Seize the day but not today – cos someone said a dirty word
Against that “piece of you” they heard

What What What? You’re going away?
You’re going away? I hope you come back the same
What What What? You’re moving on up?
You’re moving on up in this real life computer game?

Today, but not today, until it all just turns out right
I hope the truth just doesn’t bite
Seize the day but not today – cos someone said a dirty word
Against that “Piece of you” they heard
Run away just run away, until it all just turns out right
I hope the truth just doesn’t bite
Seize the day but not today, cos someone said that you were lame
At this real life computer game
