Lyrics:

There's such a beautiful mess up in my room, 
My thoughts are tangled in the legs of chairs,
I like to think that it's my token of genius,
But then again...
Maybe I just don't care...

I'm going crazy with the speed of living,
I'm leaving parts of me all over the place...
I think I've found a piece that looks like my heart,
But then again...
Maybe it's just my face...

Possession, possession, 
Paying the price...
Possession, possession, 
Run for my life...

I charge my dreams up with the cheapest batteries,
The light goes out and everything looks dim,
I stumble 'round, pretending that I'm dancing,
Doing fine...
Until the truth breaks in...

Cameras are thieves, they always take my picture,
A tape recorder stole my voice today...
I think machines and clocks have secret motives,
But then again...
Maybe they're made that way...

Possession, possession, 
Paying the price...
Possession, possession, 
Run for my life...

I paint my shirt with a all the latest outrages,
Just like I did so many years before,
It drives me to the brink of pink disaster,
But I don't mind...
That's what possession's for...

Possession, possession, 
Paying the price...
Possession, possession, 
Run for my life...
