grounds for separation lyrics – hall & oates

(daryl hall)

tin can sound and a dead-eyed crowd
can turn a sane man crazy and a crazy man sad
i can fight with the best, but i can only go so many rounds
and that’s grounds for separation
preparation for better things
gonna grow a new set of wings
and fly away

robot action, conditioned response
manufacture feeling like the tool and die
i can turn it on but i’m holding back the guarantee
and that’s grounds for separation
preparation for better things
gonna grow a new set of wings
and fly away

music, it’s my life and i’ve got it in me
but isn’t it a bit like oxygen, ’cause too much will make you high
but not enough will make you die
so i gotta keep it under control

/ hall oates lyrics
