    Paperlate paperlate

    Paperlate, oh I'm sorry but there is no one on the line
    Paperlate, oh I'm sorry but rest easy no news is good news

    Oh it's too easy to live like clockwork
    Tick tock watching the world go by
    Any change would take too long
    So dry your eyes
    Ooh it's too easy to live in a cold sweat
    Just sitting dripping in pools below
    You can wipe your face
    Kill the pain
    But the fever won't go, no no

    Paperlate
    Pull it together now
    Put your feet back on the ground
    Paperlate
    Ooh don't worry now
    You're not alone
    Look around you
    Paperlate
    Ooh I'm sorry but there's no one on the line
    Paperlate
    Ooh I'm sorry but rest easy no news is good news

    Oh it's too easy to compute your future
    Taking no risks and playing too safe
    Any change would take too long
    So dry your eyes
    Ooh it's too easy to talk about rocking the boat
    Making changes and changing track
    But you'd better not lock that door
    'Cause you'll be coming back

    Ah you're breathing faster
    Silence the only sound
    There's no need to be nice on the way up
    'Cause you're not coming down

    Paperlate paperlate
    Paperlate paperlate
    Paperlate paperlate
    Paperlate paperlate

    Paperlate
    Ooh I'm sorry but there's no one on the line
    Paperlate
    Oh I'm sorry but rest easy no news is good news
