Verse 1

He’s pleased to meet you underneath the horse
In the cathedral with the glass stained black
Singing sweet high notes that echo back
To destroy their master
May be a long time till you get the call-up
But it’s sure as fate and hard as your luck
No-one’ll know where you are

Chorus

It’s just a brief smile crossing your face
Running speed trials standing in place

Verse 2

When the socket’s not a shock enough
You little child what makes you think you’re tough?
When all the people you think you’re above
They all know what’s the matter
You’re such a pinball yeah you know it’s true
There’s always something you go back running to
To follow the path of no resistance

Chorus

It’s just a brief smile crossing your face
Running speed trials standing in place
It’s just a brief smile crossing your face
Running speed trials all over the place

Ending

Play these chords to fade-out while Elliott sings “Oooh-ooh-ohh”, etc.:


During the part where the words are “No one’ll know where you are”, you might try:

No one’ll know where you are

Same for “To follow the path of no resistance”

Neither one is completely right, I don’t think, but maybe each is part right.
