"One Point Perspective" lyrics - ARCTIC MONKEYS

"One Point Perspective"

I'm dancing in my underpants
I'm gonna run for government
I'm gonna form a covers band an' all

Back there by the baby grand
Did Mr. Winter Wonderland
Say "Come 'ere, kid, we really need to talk"?

Bear with me, man
I lost my train of thought

I fantasise, I call it quits
I swim with the economists
And I get to the bottom of it for good
By the time reality hits
The chimes of freedom fell to bits
The shining city on the fritz

They come out of the cracks
Thirsty for blood

Oh, just as the apocalypse
Finally gets prioritised
And you cry some of the hottest tears you ever cried
Multiplied by five
I suppose a singer must die

"Singsong 'round the money tree"
This stunning documentary
That no one else unfortunately saw

Such beautiful photography
It's worth it for the opening scene
I've been driving 'round listening to the score

Or maybe, I just imagined it all
I've played to quiet rooms like this before

Bear with me, man
I lost my train of thought
