Relay

Lyrics

You can hear it in the street
See it in the dragging feet
The word is getting out about control
Spies they've come and gone, the story travels on
The only quiet place is inside your soul

From tree to tree, from you to me
Traveling twice as fast as on any freeway
Every single dream, wrapped up in the scheme
They all get carried on the relay

Relay, things are brewing
Relay, something's doing
Relay, there's a revolution
Relay, relay, hand me down a solution, yeah
Pass it on, come on, a relay

Someone disapproves of what you say and do
I was asked to see what I could really learn you

From tree to tree, from you to me
Traveling twice as fast as on any freeway
Every single dream wrapped up in the scheme
They all get carried on the relay

Relay, things are brewing
Relay, something's doing
Relay, there's a revolution
Relay, relay, hand me down a solution, yeah
Pass it on, pass it on, pass it on, hey you, pass it on,
We're on the relay, get a moving, get on a moving on,
The relay, the relay, the relay, the rela
