Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Something isn't right
I don't know how I know
But baby, it's despite
Your dog-and-pony show
Verse 2
I can hear it coming
You're only going through the motions, baby
With your engines humming
You're just going through the motions, baby
Verse 3
Feel like I'm in jail
With you and Mr. Hyde
A guy who leaves a trail
About a mile wide
Verse 4
So it starts already
That you're just going through the motions, baby
You can throw confetti
But you're still going through the motions, baby
Going through the motions, baby
Verse 5
They'll have a big parade
For every day that you stay clean
But when the trumpets fade
You'll go under like a submarine
And you won't see it coming
No, you won't see it coming
Verse 6
You could have it made
Up there in San Rafael
But baby, I'm afraid
I'll never see you well
Verse 7
Because I've seen the tally
And you're just going through the motions, baby
To a big finale
That comes from going through the motions, baby
Going through the motions, baby
Going through the motions, baby
You're just going through the motions, baby
