Carried Away Lyrics

Carried Away

Nothing’s sacred when you flash your teeth
Treading water but you forget to breathe
Pretty places, rats in races hatch a black swan
When the lights go out we’ll be long gone
 
Waves breaking
And the whole world’s shaking
It’s a high price that we pay
The clock’s ticking and her halo’s sinking
Don’t get sentimental and don’t get carried away
 
Turn the pages
While your eyes still see
Between the fine lines
It seems right to me
No part of me white collar
Part of me gold
No part of million dollars gonna save my soul
All the light’s are out
Where are you now?
 
Waves breaking
And the whole world’s shaking
It’s a high price that we pay
The clock’s ticking and her halo’s sinking
Don’t get sentimental and don’t get carried away
 
I’m on a red eye flight
I’ve never worn ya
Clothes smell like California
Dog might bite but at the end of the day
I’m on a red eye flight
I’ve never worn ya
Clothes smell like California
Dog might bite but at the end of the day
Don’t get carried away
 
Waves breaking
And the whole world’s shaking
It’s a high price that we pay
The clock’s ticking and her halo’s sinking
Don’t get sentimental and don’t get carried away
