Can't you see we're meant to be like the ghosts in the radio?
Tesla's floating signals going places no one else will go
'cause they say they care but they don't mean it.
They're only there when it's convenient.
Soon as asphalt turns to gravel they can't be found.
But all we've tried to do is stick around and hold this rhythm down.
Twiddley-dee! It's like money in the bank when you strike that chord
and sound on sound the reels go 'round. They are Les Paul and Mary Ford!
Then my hardest labour is a pleasure.
A trip down a trail to a treasure.
The featherweights flew when they found out it's all up hill.
But all i've tried to do is keep the will
when every jackpot's nil
it gives me a thrill
