lyrics

GOING SOMEWHERE

I stepped out my front door / My feet took me to walk / The old familiar streets
To look at the pavement / And see the white elephants / Littered at my feet
I understand the nature of defeat

So I’m going somewhere
While I’m going nowhere
There is somewhere in this world I’d rather be
Where it’s meant to be and life is sweet

I’m not looking for something / There’s no destination / No destination
I am trying to get lost / To escape the sensation / That I am stuck in a repeat
That I am stuck in a repeat

So I’m going somewhere
While I’m going nowhere
There is somewhere in this world I’d rather be
Where it’s meant to be and life is sweet

There is somewhere in this world I’d rather be
But now I recognise the nature of defeat
There’s no more talking to the magpies in the street
Because it doesn’t matter
Too much sugar rots your teeth / My conscience doesn’t bother me
Too much sugar rots your teeth / My conscience doesn’t bother me

There is somewhere in this world I’d rather be
Where it’s meant to be and life is sweet
