"Just the Motion"

"When you're rocked on the ocean, rocked up and down,
Don't worry.

When you're spinning and turning, round and round,
Don't worry.

You're just feeling seasick, you're just feeling weak.
Your mind is confused
and you can't seem to speak.

It's just the Motion.
When your landlord is knockin, and your baby needs rockin,
Don't worry.

When your job is losin and your friends are confusin,
Don't worry.

You're just feeling seasick, you're just feeling weak.
Your mind is confused
and you can't seem to speak.

It's just the Motion.
Blown by a hundred winds,
Knocked down a hundred times,
Rescued and carried along.

Beaten and half-dead and gone,
And it's only the pain that's keeping you sane,
And gives you the mind to travel on.

Oh the motion won't leave you, Won't let you remain
Don't worry.
It's a restless wind, And a sleepless rain,
Don't worry.

Under the ocean, At the bottom of the sea
You can't hear the storm,
It's as peaceful as can be.

It's just the motion."

- Richard Thompson & David Byrne
