  • Are we crazy?
    Livin' our lives through a lens
    Trapped in our white picket fence
    Like ornaments
    So comfortable, we're livin' in a bubble, bubble
    So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble
    Aren't you lonely
    Up there in utopia
    Where nothing will ever be enough?
    Happily numb
    So comfortable, we're livin' in a bubble, bubble
    So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble

    Ah, so good
    Your rose-colored glasses on
    And party on (woo)

    Turn it up, it's your favorite song
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up, keep it on repeat
    Stumblin' around like a wasted zombie
    Yeah, we think we're free
    Drink, this one's on me
    We're all chained to the rhythm
    To the rhythm, to the rhythm

    Turn it up, it's your favorite song
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up, keep it on repeat
    Stumblin' around like a wasted zombie
    Yeah, we think we're free
    Drink, this one's on me
    We're all chained to the rhythm
    To the rhythm, to the rhythm

    Are we tone deaf?
    Keep sweepin' it under the mat
    Thought we could do better than that
    I hope we can
    So comfortable, we're livin' in a bubble, bubble
    So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble

    Aha, so good (so good)
    Your rose-colored glasses on
    And party on (woo)

    Turn it up, it's your favorite song
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up, keep it on repeat
    Stumblin' around like a wasted zombie
    Yeah, we think we're free
    Drink, this one's on me
    We're all chained to the rhythm
    To the rhythm, to the rhythm

    Turn it up, it's your favorite song (oh)
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up, keep it on repeat
    Stumblin' around like a wasted zombie
    Yeah, we think we're free
    Drink, this one's on me
    We're all chained to the rhythm
    To the rhythm, to the rhythm (woah)

    It is my desire
    Break down the walls to connect, inspire
    Ay, up inna your high place, liars
    Time is ticking for the empire
    The truth they feed is feeble
    As so many times before
    The greed over the people
    They stumblin' and fumblin' and we about to riot
    They woke up, they woke up the lions (woah)

    Turn it up, it's your favorite song (hey)
    Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
    Turn it up (turn it up), keep it on repeat
    Stumbling around like a wasted zombie (like a wasted zombie)
    Yeah, we think we're free (ah)
    Drink, this one's on me (ah)
    We're all chained to the rhythm (we're all)
    To the rhythm, to the rhythm (we're all chained to the rhythm)

    It goes on, and on, and on
    It goes on, and on, and on (turn it up, it goes on and on and on and on)
    It goes on, and on, and on (on and on and on it goes)
    'Cause we're all chained to the rhythm Writer/s: Ali Payami, Katy Perry, Max Martin, Sia Furler, Skip Marley
