Overture/Going Through the Motions

This song is by Joss Whedon and appears on the television soundtrack Once More, With Feeling (2002).

Every single night
The same arrangement
I go out and fight the fight
Still, I always feel the strange estrangement
Nothing here is real
Nothing here is right

I've been making shows of trading blows
Just hoping no one knows
That I've been going through the motions
Walking through the part
Nothing seems to penetrate my heart

I was always brave and kind of righteous
Now I find I'm wavering
Crawl out of your grave
You find this fight just doesn't mean a thing

She ain't got that swing

Thanks for noticing

Demon and vampires:
She does pretty well with fiends from hell
But lately, we can tell
That she's just going through the motions (Going through the motions)
Faking it somehow

She's not even half the girl she - ow.

Will I stay this way forever?
Sleepwalk through my life's endeavor?

Handsome young victim man:
How can I repay - -

- Whatever.
I don't want to be
Going through the motions
Losing all my drive
I can't even see
If this is really me
And I just want to be
