lyrics

Better turn up the heat and get me off my feet cause baby it's cold outside
A little something to eat and maybe watch some TV and then it's turn out the light
I get up before dawn and throw my monkey suit on; sir may I sell you my time?
As it goes on and on, I ask myself before long, "Do I want to live or survive?"

And the world keeps on turning
And that fire keeps on burning
Yeah, the world keeps on turning round and round

Yeah, the world keeps on turning
And that fire keeps on burning
I wanna turn it upside down

So give me a week out there with my best friends
A city to roam, a frontier to pretend
I'm alive
So build me up and burn me down

Give me a place I can go in the bad times
A memory trip when I close my eyes
I'm alive
So build me up and burn me down

Sometimes I feel like it's wrong but I just play along and pretend it's okay
I collapse like a lung and I bite my tongue when I've got something to say
So when you want to sing "Welcome to the Machine" at the end of the day
As bad as it seems on a losing team, you still go out and play

And the world keeps on turning
And that fire keeps on burning
Yeah, the world keeps on turning round and round

Yeah, the world keeps on turning
And that fire keeps on burning
I wanna turn it upside down

So give me a week out there with my best friends
A city to roam, a frontier to pretend
I'm alive
So build me up and burn me down

Give me a place I can go in the bad times
A memory trip when I close my eyes
I'm alive
So build me up and burn me down

The man stands before the temple and this is what he sees
A band of lucky seven
And they're all following me

He throws his arms in the air
And looks up to the sky
A crowd of people surrounds him
To celebrate being alive

So give me a week out there with my best friends
A city to roam, a frontier to pretend
I'm alive
So build me up and burn me down

Give me a place I can go in the bad times
A memory trip when I close my eyes
I'm alive
So build me up and burn me down
