"Adoration"

[ from the album "Hypnoprism" (2010) ]

Lyrics

There are people who always say
They cherish life in a special way
Just as you do and others they
Look up to someone in a special way

I knew a girl who would pray all day
Now she would kneel while he would say
Why adore something that you can't see
Stay down here and talk to me

In the end they thought they found
A special idol to adore
Then they lost the cheaper kind
Just to watch him more and more

One of these days we'll build a home
There'll be a room we can be alone
And in a year maybe there will be
A higher life for you and me

Everyone is searching for
A brand new idol to adore
And in the time it takes to win
Adoration comes within
Seethe and turn a dozen times
Feel it all ends up in sighing
Patience is the highest virtue
Winning here is what we all do

Seethe and turn a dozen times
Seethe and turn a dozen times
Seethe and turn a dozen times
Seethe and turn a dozen times

(I knew a girl who would pray all day)
Adoration comes within (Seethe and turn a dozen times)
Seethe and turn a dozen times (Seethe and turn a dozen times)
Feel it all ends up in sighing (Seethe and turn a dozen times)
Patience is the highest virtue (Seethe and turn a dozen times)
Winning here is what we all do (Seethe and turn a dozen times)

Seethe and turn a dozen times
Seethe and turn a dozen times
Seethe and turn a dozen times
Seethe and turn a dozen times
Seethe and turn a dozen times
