This song is by The Delgados and appears on the album Domestiques (1996).

Take a short, take a short change
Taking time, time to rearrange
Slow me down, slow me down; it's good
Hit it far, hit it far you could

Take another shortcut
Figure out the place to be
What's another foul up
When you're getting words for free?

What's the world, what's the world gone?
Over up, over up shown (?)
Get in line, be in time, stop
Show me what, show me whatcha got

Have you ever earned it?
Pleasantries in trade for thought?
What's another setup?
Elevate from what you're not
So, so

Shut up
Take emotion
You're satisfied when I have tried
No one has it all inside
So, shut up
No one's watching
Take on board what you have scored
Second chances find you floored

Stop sitting on the fence
Not furious, suspense
Quick, call up to the scene (?)
Sit quietly, obscene

Never could forgive it
Falling for the other side
Never could admit it
Falling for forgotten pride
So, so

Shut up
Take emotion
You're satisfied when I have tried
No one has it all inside
So, shut up
No one's watching
Take on board what you have scored
Second chances find you floored

They go to school
Insubstantial in for fools
Joining them and they're no fun
Watching favours overturn
Fortune is as fortune does
Line up, line up without us
We'll take your chances, take the game
Take it, take it
