Liner Notes

Reaction


She's taking me to the station, got to work the day shift

A picture of her patience as she pulls down this rail

Got me in her suitcase, got to pay the duties

They're sending me a name, now, but how does it work?


The sound is stimulating, her breathing keeps me waiting

Legs of true creation longing for elation

Puritan approach, there's nothing like that here

And I can't get no rest in when I'm moving with her


But meaning never comes, it's just reaction

Meaning never comes, just reaction

Reaction, you will dance, dance, dance

Reaction, you will laugh, laugh, laugh

Reaction, tell me what will you do?


Hunger puts it in my mouth, I move to miss the blow

My hand goes to reach it, I look up when I'm below

Talking to myself, reaction's favorite friend

I still can't seem to change it, see me lean with the bend


But meaning never comes, it's just reaction

Meaning never comes, just reaction

Reaction, you will dance, dance, dance

Reaction, you will laugh, laugh, laugh

Reaction, tell me what will you do?
