Too Far

let's go
a drive in the car
don't take it too slow
don't take it too far

who do you trust
to let you be just who you are
to take you away from all this
but never too far

now that you think
that you're better than me
that you've set yourself free
that you are somebody
if just for one moment
you'd let yourself be
what you set out to be
then you might yet agree
nobody else gets to see what you see
'cause you've hid up the tree
and swallowed the key

you put it all down
as you pick it all up
you parade it around
through the streets and the underground
now that there's no one to tell you
you take it too far

one last ride in the car
won't take it too fast
not going too far

where were you taught
you were better than me
that you'd set us all free
that you were somebody
why were we less
than you'd have us all be
and why couldn't we see
that we ought to agree
well, nobody else
gave a damn what you thought
or the battles you fought
'cause the distance you bought
was too far
you took it too far, took it too far
