It’s Not testo

I keep going round and round on the same old circuit
a wire travels underground to a vacant lot
… something I can’t see interrupts the current
and shrinks the picture down to a tiny dot
and from behind the screen it can look so perfect
but it’s not

so here I’m sitting in my car at the same old stop light
I keep waiting for a change but I don’t know what
so red turns into green turning into yellow
but I’m just frozen here in the same old spot
and all I have to do is to press the pedal
but I’m not

People are tricky you can’t afford to show
anything risky anything they don’t know
the moment you try – … kiss it goodbye

so baby kiss me like a drug, like a respirator
and let me fall into the dream of the astronaut
for I’ll get lost in space that goes on forever
and you … just an afterthought
and I’ll believe it’s you could make it better
though it’s not
no it’s not
no it’s not…
