It wouldn't take a long time to explain what lies between us
And it wouldn't take a genius to work out what the scene is
It might just take a pilot to give you a natural high
But you're sending off those bottle tops for your free piece of mind
And are you just waving or drowning?
It's so hard to tell when you're so far away
Oh, innocence has passed you by a long, long time ago
I was the fly upon your wall and I saw what you know
Your pornographic priestess left you for another guy
You frighten little children and you always wonder why
Always wonder why
The mercury is rising and it's not all that surprising
In the land of milk and honey where you make big money
And it always keeps the rain off and it always keeps you dry
But back home the people hate you and you never did know why
But I think I'm going to tell you
Just give me fifty thousand lire for my thoughts
Oh, innocence has passed you by a long, long time ago
I was the fly upon your wall and I saw what you know
The supermarket checkout girl once smacked you in the eye
When you eat no one else does but you always wonder why
Always wonder why
It would take a gunshot just to clear your head awhile
And after all this time how can you stand there
Look at me and smile?
Now are you just waving or drowning?
It's so hard to tell when you're so far away
Oh, innocence has passed you by a long, long time ago
I was the fly upon your wall and I saw what you know
Degeneration suits you, now I'm going home to cry
You won't be seeing me again but you'll always wonder why
Always wonder why
