about

They said it’s clearly not for you,
If you gotta ask what it’s for/
You keep yours there on the table
Right next to your office door.

There was a time when life was simple;
That was before you had it all.
So when you have time you return to the cradle.
Lift the bearing, and watch it fall...

I’m sure it’s not that you haven’t got
All the peace of mind you want,
But all you hear with it in your ear
Is a dismal, ticking clock.

Wake me up now if you’re able,
Rescue me from a Newton’s Cradle.

Now you’re climbing up Jacob’s Ladder;
Now you’re running on Maxwell’s Wheel.
Telling yourself that it really matters
Just how cozy your office feels.

But lately
You feel like you’re missing something -
What it is, you can’t quite recall.
You can’t get no rest in the cradle...
Lift the bearing and watch it fall.

I’m sure that you have a lot to do,
But you really can’t complain.
Every day you can work and play,
And you never feel the strain…

Wake me up now if you’re able,
Rescue me from a Newton’s Cradle.
