See the lyrics, below:

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:
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

ORIGINAL POST (2/8): Katy Perry‘s slowly setting her new single — “Chained to the Rhythm’ — free.

Perry, who began teasing the song earlier this week, unveiled a global stunt today (February 8) through which she scattered a series of disco balls at various points across the world (“Leave your bubble and bring your headphones,” she tweeted with a map). Fans had the opportunity at any given checkpoint to plug their earbuds into the orbs and listen to the track, and thankfully for us, a few brave Perry-disciples posted the results to Twitter.

Yup, fans from Brazil to Germany to Paraguay shared bits of “Chained to the Rhythm,” which sounds like the bop fans have been hoping to hear from Perry’s forthcoming fourth studio album. “Turn it up, it’s your favorite song / Dance, dance, dance,” Katy mellowly croons over the mid-tempo jam.

Perry, who will perform at the 2017 Grammy Awards, told InStyle in September that she’s angling for a whole new sound with her next project, which she’s all but confirmed will drop later this year.

“Even when I was working with my go-to producers, I’d always push them to play me a beat that was reserved for Three 6 Mafia something like that,” Katy said. “I know exactly how to write a lyric over that because my strengths are melody and lyrics. I’m putting myself in unexpected situations and that is breeding a lot of new color.”
