I spy a set up, ain't nothing but a fix You can set your trap, and you can get your kicks You invite me in, to your woven web Can’t move my wings, can’t move my legs Stuck! Fucked! Silent assassin, glistening in the sun Whirlpool vortex, spinning around Can’t move, can’t scream, even if I try You pegged me only to, hang me out to dry Stuck! Fucked!

I can still remember there was this one time I was driving with you There was a song by Prince on the radio and I sang two lines in tune I think we were both equally surprised When you said to me ‘that sounded alright’ I guess it’s not something I ever expected to hear you say Yeah I guess every dog has it’s day But still I can’t get no satisfaction No no no, I can’t even get a reaction It’s like there’s no interaction And we’re slowly running out of traction But it’s not too late, we can still turn this around Whatever we have lost can still be found Never say never say never Just gotta be prepared to look together

You better watch your feet - there's snakes in the street Sandstorms a-brewing - time to get moving Sahara's a long way out - 15 hours back to Taghazout Dog tired so sick feeling bad - blood orange bile in the riad Guess the tagine chicken wasn't that fresh - Gotta get outta Marrakesh Goats in the trees - Essouira breeze Cool atlantic air - after the crumby bus-station in Agadir Cobra's with mouths sewn closed - a little too long on Atlas mountain roads Sifting through the Dades Valley - in our own film in Ouarzazate Nobodies even tried selling me hash - gotta get outta Marrakesh

Shall we start at the beginning, but never cross the finish line Stumble a little along the way, while we're running out of time Yeah shall we start at the beginning, or shall we begin at the start Do you know the difference, can you even tell the two apart These are the answers that struck me today I haven't got the answers but the questions still stay These are the questions that won't go away I haven't got the answers coming today Well how late is too late, and how far is too far How much is too much, and how little til it's sub par Shall we just laugh it off, treat it as a joke Or shall we watch it burn, admire the patterns of smoke These are the answers that struck me today I haven't got the answers but the questions still stay These are the questions that won't go away I haven't got the answers coming today Shall we consider our options, take it seriously Ahhhh, think things through, and push the boundaries Or is it better we walk away, is it better we left it Just exactly how much, is too much fucking effort These are the answers that struck me today I haven't got the answers but the questions still stay These are the questions that won't go away I haven't got the answers coming today
