"Chained to the Rhythm" Lyrics:

Verse 1:

Are we crazy

Living our lives through a lens

Trapped in our white picket fence

Like ornaments

So comfortable, we're living in a bubble, bubble

So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble

Aren't you lonely

Up there in utopia

Where nothing will ever be enough

Happily numb

So comfortable, we're living in a bubble, bubble

So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble

Pre-chorus:

So put your rose-colored glasses on

And party on

Chorus:

Turn it up, it's your favorite song

Dance, dance, dance to the distortion

Turn it up, keep it on repeat

Stumbling around like a wasted zombie

Yeah, we think we're free

Drink, this one's on me

We're all chained to the rhythm

To the rhythm

To the rhythm

Turn it up, it's your favorite song

Dance, dance, dance to the distortion

Turn it up, keep it on repeat

Stumbling around like a wasted zombie

Yeah, we think we're free

Drink, this one's on me

We're all chained to the rhythm

To the rhythm

To the rhythm

Verse 2:

Are we tone deaf

Keep sweeping it under the mat

Thought we could do better than that

I hope we can

So comfortable, we're living in a bubble, bubble

So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble

Pre-chorus:

So put your rose-colored glasses on

And party on

Chorus:

Turn it up, it's your favorite song

Dance, dance, dance to the distortion

Turn it up, keep it on repeat

Stumbling around like a wasted zombie

Yeah, we think we're free

Drink, this one's on me

We're all chained to the rhythm

To the rhythm

To the rhythm

Turn it up, it's your favorite song

Dance, dance, dance to the distortion

Turn it up, keep it on repeat

Stumbling around like a wasted zombie

Yeah, we think we're free

Drink, this one's on me

We're all chained to the rhythm

To the rhythm

To the rhythm

Bridge:

It is my desire

Break down the walls to connect, inspire

Up in your high place, liars

Time is ticking for the empire

The truth they feed is feeble

As so many times before

They greed over the people

They stumbling and fumbling

And we about to riot

They woke up, they woke up the lions

Chorus:

Capitol Music Group

Turn it up, it's your favorite song

Dance, dance, dance to the distortion

Turn it up, keep it on repeat

Stumbling around like a wasted zombie

Yeah, we think we're free

Drink, this one's on me

We're all chained to the rhythm

To the rhythm

To the rhythm
