Lyrics

Who's that car in your driveway?
I left a message on your phone
Who's that fool visiting you
When you said you were alone?
I'll smash your rhythm box
You think I won't dare
I'll never be back
I turn to go

This is your deliverance
I've been living in a box
Can't take it any more
You played me for a fool
You're dancing on my own grave
I chose to die
But there's a place for me
Far over the sea
And it's in my mind
I turn to go

I turn to go

I stared at the sun
You have no soul
You'll turn to stone
My heart is cold

I'll leave this town
(He'll leave this town)
I'll start again
(He'll start again)
You think I won't dare
I'm walking away
Just watch me now!
(Just watch him now!)
You'll pay the price
I've stared at the sun
You have no soul
My heart is cold
I'll turn to go
(He'll turn to go)
I'll walk on by
(He'll walk on by)
I'll smash your rhythm box
You think I wouldn't try
I'll never be back
My heart is cold
I'll turn to go
Your tongue is forked
I'm not your clown
I'll leave this town
I'll start again

Now goodbye goodbye girl
You're easy to let go
You've made love with Bill and Ben
Jed and Jeff and Joe
Red fluorescent cocktail
I smell their sperm on you

I'll scorch the ground
I'll scotch the rumour mill
You never pulled weight
You never had faith
You'll miss me when I'm gone
Just wait and see
I'm out like a shot
How could this happen to me?
I stayed in line
I turn to go

Who's that car in your driveway?
I left a message on your phone
I'm not your clown
You have no soul
You'll be sorry one day
You showed no faith
Just watch how it's done
My heart is cold
I turn to go

I stare the stare
You let me down
I stayed in line
I'm the piggy in the middle
You think I won't dare
I'll just walk away
Just watch me now
And I won't care
Don't care any more
You'll pay the price
I stared at the sun

You have no soul
My heart is cold
My plan is made
I'll walk away
I'll turn to gold
You have no soul
Your tongue is forked
I'll leave this town
I'll start again
I turn to go
