Wheels within wheels
Turning wheels
Tumbling towards a conclusion
A crimson cascade
The blood in the bowl
And the mind that you're in is walking the world
But you feel like you're walking on water
Face up to the fact
Face up to the truth
Face up to reality
You're just being used
There's a spark in your eyes
When she calls she'll explode
And she's blaming it all on crossed wires

When the clocks move sideways (in the Fellini days)
When the clocks move sideways (in the Fellini days)
Ah Fellini days

Fix a stare at the wall
Avoiding the accusations that lurk in the mirror
Trying to catch my attention
Reflect on the fact
That your life is such a mess
Whose fault is that anyway?
The shutters are closed
Did you lock all the doors?
Arm the alarms?
Sheath all the knives?
Unload the guns?
Throw out the pills?
Did you remember to switch off the TV?
Don't answer the phone
Provide the impression there's nobody home (in the Fellini days)
As if there was anyway (in the Fellini days)
As if there was anyway

When the clock moves sideways
The clock moves sideways

Tick, tock
Tick, tock
Tick, tock
Tick, tock
Tick, tock
Tick, tock
Tock, tock
Tock, tock

(In the Fellini days)
When the clock moves sideways
(In the Fellini days)
When the clock moves sideways
(In the) Fellini days

Regardez
Don't answer the phone
(In the Fellini days)
Regardez

Wheels within wheels turning wheels
Tumbling towards a conclusion
Wheels within wheels within wheels
Tumbling towards a conclusion
Tumbling towards a conclusion
Tumbling towards a conclusion

Wheels within wheels within wheels
Tumbling towards a conclusion

Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
For auld lang syne
For auld lang syne
Fellini days
Fellini days
Fellini days


Live version (2002)

Wheels within wheels
Turning wheels
Tumbling towards a conclusion
A crimson cascade
The blood in the bowl
And the mind that you're in is walking the world
But you feel like you're walking on water
Face up to the facts
Face up to the truth
Face up to reality
You're just being used
There's a spark in your eyes
When she calls she'll explode
And she's blaming it all on crossed wires

When the clocks move sideways (in the Fellini days)
When the clocks move sideways (in the Fellini days)
When the clocks move sideways
Ah Fellini days

Fix a stare at the wall
Avoiding the accusations that lurk in the mirror
Trying to catch my attention
Reflect on the fact
That your life is such a mess
Whose fault is that anyway?
The shutters are closed
Did you lock all the doors?
Arm the alarms?
Sheath all the knives?
Unload the guns?
Throw out the pills?
Did you remember to switch off the TV?
Don't answer the phone
Provide the impression there's nobody home (in the Fellini days)
As if there was anyway (in the Fellini days)
As if there was anyway

When the clock moves sideways
The clock moves sideways

Tick, tock
Tick, tock
Tick, tock
Tick, tock
Tick, tock
Tick, tock
Tock, tock
Tock, tock

When the clock moves sideways (in the Fellini days)
When the clock moves sideways (in the Fellini days)
When the clock moves sideways (in the Fellini days)

Wheels within wheels turning wheels
Tumbling towards a conclusion
