  • I hope there's a shot in the dark
    That if I keep it up I can keep on going
    They say that life is short
    And it can't be bought by the likes of me
    I heard that it won't be long
    Until we're gone like dew in the morning
    Stop the clocks! Pull up your socks!
    Go find a fountain to wash it off

    So kill the screen, head to Medellin
    To shout and scream and find your trouble
    Live amongst the orange roses
    Pull vogue poses and wash it off
    Lord knows I'm in the field
    Hellhounds are back and on my heels

    They said I died last week
    In the Pacific Ocean no words were spoken
    Plane fell right out the sky
    But they dunno why, but don't you worry
    'Cause life's a lie, so roll the die
    Keep on trying to wash it off
    (Go wash it off)
    (Go wash it off)
    (Go wash it off)

    Don't you even think of me
    'Cause I'll be free beyond the lLevee
    All that's left is a Ghost Machine
    And it can't be reached but you can try
    You should go buy the boat
    And build a moat, untie yourself

    Go wash it off
    Go wash it off
    Go wash it off

    You're my ride or die
    I just wish, I'd said goodbye one last time
    (One last time)
    Now all that's left is a ghost machine
    It can't be reached, it won't be seen again
    (Seen again)

    'Cause you were my ride or die
    I just wanted to say goodbye
    (Say goodbye)
    'Cause all that's left is a ghost machine
    It can't be reached, it won't be seen again

    Go wash it off (go wash it off)
    Go wash it off (go wash it off)
    Go wash it off (go wash it off)
    Go wash it off (go wash it off) Writer/s: Edwin Thomas Congreave, Jack William Bevan, James Andrew Smith, Yannis Barnabas Emanuel Philippakis
