lyrics

naturally there are some questions now
answer them i shall best as i know how
but let’s not get carried away
there’s a time and place for everything
let’s remember what we become
when we try to be the things we know we’re not

if i could i would i promise you
naturally i knock on plastic wood
if it is a matter of time
it is a conflicted and twisted circus mime
if it is a matter of fame
take another number but with a better name

in the meanwhile there are things to do
like making lists of things to never do
if it is a matter of love
sometimes it’s a dragon and sometimes it’s a dove
if it is a matter of wealth
spread it like a secret you can’t keep to yourself

do you wanna’ know what’s behind my self-control?
do you wanna’ see what’s behind the scenery?
it’s not me

in the meanwhile there are things to do
like making lists of hunches and of clues
if it is a matter of fate
maybe it’s just running very very late
if it is a matter of death
don’t ask me ‘cuz i have not tried it yet

do you wanna’ know what’s behind my self-control?
do you wanna’ see what’s behind the mystery?
it’s not me
