about setting off and following your nose, down the hall or through Patagonia

lyrics

When I took my eyes off the ball
It went bouncing down the hall
Shoulda made that telephone call
Shoulda met her in the shopping mall
I can’t ima-gine
What goes on in your brand new lab
Or put to ransom
A girl in a hansom cab
Just a chance that we can spiral in
Find the skylight and just drop in
And follow that bouncing ball
Follow that bouncing ball

I made a record on a piece of wax
It went down through the cracks
And now it’s done
We can never look back
And I’m a sailor
Cast adrift on a toxic sea
And all my crew mates
They’re pirates on a spending spree
Just a chance that we can spiral in
Find the jetty and just dive in
And follow that bouncing ball
Follow that bouncing ball
..down the hall
down the hall

It’s cata-to-ni- a
The sound of a thousand cuts
And in Patagonia
I felt the pain deep inside my guts
Just a chance that we can spiral in
Find the jetty and just dive in
Yeah you follow that bouncing ball
follow that bouncing ball
out the door and into the street
off the jetty and into the sea
far from you and me
from you
from me
