Meryn Cadell - Steam Clean Express lyrics

Nothing can keep you down.
Nothing can keep you dumb.
Nothing can keep you marching.
Nothing will keep you young.
You talk about your life in sports analogy
Secretly you're feeling kind of empty
You play the stock market in your spare time
Away from the demanding rocket science grind
Are you on the highway clenching
Your teeth in your mouth, and the wheel in your hand...
With your self-help tape on 10 are you rattling the windows?
Do you think you just saw your last chance fly past and go?
Paper clip, paper
Keeping it together
Stay with it, stay with it forever.
Paper clip, paper
Keeping it together
Stay with it, stay with it forever
Life is hammered down to just one hamster
Wondering if you are gonna feed it.
Or does it have to roll over, play dead,
For you to even see it.
The problem is that when you wear your nice lace
Buttoned to the top it irritates your neck
Where you had an operation a few years back
And they removed the defiant look from your face.
Paper clip, paper
Keeping it together
Stay with it, stay with it forever.
If everyone else jumped off a cliff....
Would you drive down to the bottom in your Jeep
And go through everyone else's wallets,
Just to see if there was anything worth keeping?
Don't settle down, don't settle
For nothing til you're clear on who you're doing it for.
Are you gonna let your petri dish of plans
Fester by the back door?
The road well-travelled is the boring one.
You're gonna fall asleep on the ride, hon
A bit of drool against a dirty window
Keeping you from going where you should go.
Paper clip, paper
Keeping it together
Stay with it, stay with it forever.
Paper clip, paper
Keeping it together
Stay with it, stay with it forever.
If you can never be too rich or too thin.....
When you eventually collapse on the street,
Is it expensive to keep the story out of the newspaper?

Once the sod really takes root here,
And the trees are large enough
That the dogs can't pull them out of the ground,
This will be a lovely place to live.
If money can't buy you love, what are you saving it for?
Thinking small thoughts? Thinking mall thoughts?
Counteract it baby with a little acting up maybe
