Abney Park — Life's the Thing lyrics

The page contains the lyrics of the song "Life's the Thing" by Abney Park.


Satiate my hunger
Nicotine patch that plugs this hole
And keeps my soul assunder
But I long for smells and sights
Real tastes, real muscles sting
To put my feet on higher ground
…real life is the thing
It’s been years since I watched the dawn
Break over a craters ring
It’s been years since I built a fire
And heard the jungle sing
I need to fill a hallow soul
Feel my trail take wing
Adventure off the beaten path
Real life is the thing!
Take me away from tiny towns
Tiny minds with tiny lives
Glaring eyes with perm-frowns
I’ll walk, I’ll fly or drive!
Take me to an unknow land
Where strangers always smile
Or take me to abandoned worlds
With no one there for miles and miles and miles!
