Neck On Up

  I gave the girls the eye
  I've given lust a try
  I'm just an average guy
  From the neck on down
  I used to have my fun
  When all was said and done
  I only wanted someone
  From the neck on down
  Maybe it's one too many mornings after
  Maybe I'm sick of my own nervous laughter

  Now I'm looking for heaven
  From the neck on up
  For a perfect eleven
  From the neck on up

  I was a typical man
  I had a master plan
  I thought that heaven began
  From the waist on down
  And I had always said
  That I could use my head
  But I was thinking instead
  From the waist on down
  Maybe it's one too many frozen shoulders or
  Maybe I haven't noticed getting older

  Trapped in a dream
  Something has to change in this endless stream
  Of ships that pass in the night
  Is this what I want out of life?
  I want to know what this game is about
  I want someone to try and figure me out

  I can't determine why
  But I'm a different guy
  Your modus operandi
  Turned me inside out
  It's not that I don't care
  About your fine hardware
  But you've got something else there
  I can't figure out
  Maybe I just can't finish what I've started or
  Maybe it's simply that I've been outsmarted

  Now I've found my heaven
  From the neck on up
  You're a perfect eleven
  From the neck on up
