Lyrics

Time waits for no one
And we have no control
It's such a strange affair

It lives without us
And offers no parole
Always one step ahead

Sitting in the palm of your hand
Squeeze if it pleases you
Sitting in the palm of your hand

I heard a rumour
That you've been working me
As your ambassador

I'm in the pocket
Just like a refugee
Without an exit clause

Sitting in the palm of your hand
Squeeze if it pleases you
Sitting in the palm of your hand

This road leads no where
Why won't you set us free?
Why sail against the tide?
What do you want from me?
Yeah

Clock and dagger (cloak and dagger)
Why play this power game? Yeah-yeah
Clock and dagger (cloak and dagger)
Don't keep me sitting in the palm of your hand

Yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah

Sitting in the palm of your hand
Squeeze if it pleases you
Sitting in the palm of your hand
It's now or never, now more than ever

Clock and dagger (cloak and dagger)
Why play this power game? Yeah-yeah
Clock and dagger (cloak and dagger)
Can't keep me sitting in the palm of your hand

Clock and dagger (cloak and dagger)
Why play this power game? Yeah-yeah
Clock and dagger (cloak and dagger)
You can't keep me there, keep me there
Sitting in the palm of your hand (cloak and dagger)
Don't keep me, don't keep me
Sitting in the palm of your hand (cloak and dagger)
Don't ya play this power game
