Marnie – Alphabet Block lyrics

[Verse 1]
Quick fire, I’m on time, you’re ahead of schedule
Blue walls, propaganda mixed with scare stories
Straight lines, colour coded, lead the way to a dead end waiting room
Machines throb, we’re fluorescent in buzzing lights
These corridors smell so strange in this alphabet block I’m in
Fear and loathing and wondering
Alphabet block

[Pre-Chorus]
Holding on, holding on
Everybody’s the same when it matters
Holding on, we’re holding on
Hold my hand, don’t let me go (blend into chorus)

[Chorus]
Ru-un, ru-un, we won’t waste a second
A second, you’re out of time
You might find, when you’re on alphabet block

[Chorus]
Ru-un, ru-un, we won’t waste a second
A second, you’re out of time
You might find, when you’re on alphabet block

[Verse 2]
Cigarettes, littered ground, medieval houses
All the cars bumper to bumper, not enough space
Break it down and resign to the fact that there are no promises here
Drink this down, swallow hard, don’t ask questions, right?
Just turn around, wait a week, till the alphabet block is done
Fear and loathing, still wondering
Alphabet block

[Pre-Chorus]
Holding on, holding on
Everybody’s the same when it matters
Holding on, we’re holding on
Hold my hand, don’t let me go (blend into chorus)

[Chorus]
Ru-un, ru-un, we won’t waste a second
A second, you’re out of time
You might find, when you’re on alphabet block (blend)

[Chorus]
Ru-un, ru-un, we won’t waste a second
A second, you’re out of time
You might find, when you’re on alphabet block

[Bridge]
A softly spoken voice gives a choice
But I’m not ready to make a decision
Solitary soul, solitary soul
‘Cause I need you with your warm advice
Won’t hesitate, won’t pay the price
All I ask of you: can we just…

[Chorus]
Ru-un, ru-un, we won’t waste a second
A second, you’re out of time
You might find, when you’re on alphabet block

[Chorus]
Ru-un, ru-un, we won’t waste a second
A second, you’re out of time
You might find, when you’re on alphabet block
