Going Through the Motions
  Lyrics

Buffy: Every single night
The same arrangement
I go out and fight the fight

Still I always feel
This strange estrangement
Nothing here is real
Nothing here is right

I've been making shows of trading blows
Just hoping no one knows
That I've been
Going through the motions,
Walking through the part
Nothing seems to penetrate my... heart

(stakes a vamp)

I was always brave
And kind of righteous
Now I find I'm wavering

Crawl out of your grave
You find this fight just
Doesn't mean a thing

Vampire: She ain't got that swing

(knocks her down)

Buffy: Thanks for noticing

Two vamps and a goatlike demon:
She does pretty well
With fiends from hell
But lately we can tell
That she's just

Two Vamp: Going through the motions

(Buffy slays one with a sword)

Goatlike Demon: Going through the motions

One Vamp: Faking it somehow

(Buffy kicks him)

Goatlike Demon: She's not even half the girl she...
(Buffy guts him with the sword)
...Owwwww!

Buffy: Will I stay this way forever?
Sleepwalk through my life's endeavour?

(cuts the knot to free a handsome man tied to a tree)

Saved Guy: How can I repay —

Buffy: Whatever!
I don't want to be
Going through the motions
Losing all my drive
I can't even see
If this is really me
and I just wanna be
(slays a vampire)
....Alive
