After getting my vinyl version, I had to share some delicious “…Like Clockwork” lyrics:
1. Keep Your Eyes Peeled:
“And I know you’ll never believe, I play this as though I’m alright. If life is but a dream: wake me up.”
2. I Sat By the Ocean:
“Lies are a funny thing. They slip through your fingertips because they never happened to you. Time wounds all the heals as we fade out of view.”
3. The Vampyre of Time and Memory:
"I’ve survived. I speak; I breathe. I’m incomplete. I’m alive… Hooray. You’re wrong again cause I feel no love."
4. If I Had a Tail:
“Tears of pleasure, tears of pain, they trickle down your face the same.”
5. My God is the Sun:
"I don’t know what time it was. I don’t wear a watch. So good to be an ant who crawls atop a spinning rock…"
"Fates favour the ones who help themselves. The rest feel the sting of the lash as they row… The boat to hell."
7. Fairweather Friends:
"One day when we’re far away from everything that hurts, drink wine and screw is all we’ll do. Every day."
8. Smooth Sailing:
"I’ve got bruises and hickies, stitches and scars. Got my own theme music plays wherever I are. Fear is the hand that pulls your strings: a useless toy, pitiful plaything. I’m in flagrante in every way."
9. I Appear Missing:
"Don’t cry: With my toes on the edge it’s such a lovely view. Inside: I never loved anything until I loved you. Confide: I’m over the edge, what can I do but shine? I’m falling through…"
10. Like Clockwork:
"Most of what you see, my dear, is purely for show, because not everything that goes around comes back around, you know. Holding on too long is just fear of letting go, because not everything that goes around comes back around, you know. One thing that is clear, it’s all downhill from here."
