lyrics

I'm walking through the streets at night
The shadows cast no sun
I've got no sense of what is right
I'm alright when the game's begun
But now the whistle's blown

I'm talking to complete strangers
About the universe
Life and everything made sense last night
But fortune's gone from bad to worse
I can't find my way back home

The future's written in the stars
The past has been rubbed out
The present is a gift
So pass it round

A song is playing in my head
Over and over again
My body's plainly under-fed
But that tune will always feed my brain
When there's nothing else to do

I hear your voice, it's such a tease
With E.S.P. I'm cursed
I'm testing out these theories
This entropy will be reversed
The moment I'm with you

The past is written in the stars
The future's been mapped out
The present's all wrapped up
So take it now

I'm talking to complete strangers
In the pub and on the bus
I just do not know where to stop
I'm living life for both of us
But dying to get home

The future's written in the stars
The past has been rubbed out
The present is a gift
The past is written in the stars
The future's been mapped out
The present's all wrapped up
The past is written in the stars
The present's just a scam
The future is with you
So here I am
