Are You Receiving Me

  • If your circles could be spirals
    And your idols weren't machines
    If you could pick up all the signals
    And flash on where you've been
    Maybe you don't feel it at all
    It's your own fault crawl boy, crawl!
    If you could quit the miming
    And try some different timing
    You could get a chance to be free
    Are you receiving me
    It's the pilot's plea
    Are you receiving me
    Close to insanity
    Are you receiving me
    Recharge your battery
    Are you receiving me
    (or are you out to lunch)
    If your prayers could all be answered
    And you were given time to pay
    The chances would be so heavy
    But you'd find a better way Writer/s: FENTON, HAY, KOOYMANS
