lyrics

(Haha, So classic you.)

The time is right you've got to jump the fence and run.
Rip that dollar collar off your neck and run.
There's no line or guest list,
to your bedroom is where we like to exist.
We like to exist.

Bust me while I'm still alive.
Classic Diversion every time.

You seem to know everyone that is hanging 'round.
I'll airlift you away from this incestuous crowd.
Spilt milk, eggshells,
crunching under feet as we slip away,
we slip away.

Bust me while I'm still alive.
Classic Diversion every time.
Bust me while I'm still alive.
Classic Diversion

Now you say your down and out,
followed around by dark clouds,
You've got to get up and out,
because nothing ever happens
when you're sitting on your habits waiting.

Whoa, make a move now.
Make a move now.
Make your move now.

The time is right you've got to jump the fence and run.
Holding on, like it's the last chopper outa 'nam.
Don't doubt it, don't crowd it,
sniper on the roof is asleep
so make your move now.
Make your move now.

Bust me while I'm still alive.
Classic Diversion every time.
Bust me while I'm still alive.
Classic Diversion
