Locomotion Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (Crossing every ocean for the sake of locomotion) Across every ocean For the sake of locomotion But I wouldn't have a notion How to save my soul I walk down the sidewalk Run down the boardwalk Stop and make small talk But I can't say no to you I can't say no, I can't say yes I can't even write down my own address I can't touch Heaven, it's a little too far It's the only way to travel Got dreaming on a par I'm staring through the window Wonder where you are Moving through the landscape at a million miles an hour Across every nation From the harbour to the station It's a form of inspiration It's a power to the state They run down the railways Sail across the seaways Fly through the airways But they can't say no to you I can't stand up, I can't stand still I know you wouldn't like it if I told you how I feel I just want to say that it's only common sense But the words always fail me at my own expense I'm staring out the window Wonder where you are Moving through the landscape at a million miles an hour Across every ocean For the sake of locomotion But I wouldn't have a notion How to save my soul I walk down the sidewalk Run down the boardwalk Stop and make small talk But I can't say no to you
