So I got to running like hell ♪ ♪ I could tell that you played for keeps ♪ ♪ Now I live on a boat
That sits on a moat ♪ ♪ On top of piss river
Outside your castle ♪ ♪ And when death comes ’round
We all sing, “Oh, what an asshole” ♪ ♪ He stirs quite the fuss
And he causes quite the hassle ♪ ♪ We all buy black suits
As our lives go on mute ♪ ♪ And meet under the belfry
To cry and say sorry ♪ ♪ And oh my God ♪ ♪ Do you want to play chess
Inside my chest? ♪ ♪ You move, I move, you choose, I choose ♪ ♪ And who, who, who?
I beg like an owl ♪ ♪ As I sit on my perch
And I stare and I scowl ♪ ♪ I know I left you
But I cannot forget you ♪ ♪ Now I only know
How to harm or upset you ♪ ♪ See, I came for your love
But I stayed for your anger ♪ ♪ And you rocked me, mama
Like a babe in a manger ♪ ♪ And oh my God ♪ ♪ Oh my God ♪ ♪ I tried to pray
But I didn’t know what to say ♪ ♪ So I just mumbled some names ♪ ♪ I said, “I hope they’re okay”
Then “Amen” ♪ ♪ They were the names
Of my family and friends ♪ ♪ And the planet’s so lonely
And the planet’s so cold ♪ ♪ And if I’m so lucky
I’ll die when I’m old ♪ ♪ I pray no disaster, no fire, no rain ♪ ♪ And I pray that no devil
Gets inside my brain ♪ ♪ As the world does its twirl
Between the moon and the sun ♪ ♪ Casting clock shadows
beyond everyone ♪ ♪ And the hours devour us ♪ ♪ As I stare out my window
As I ride this bus ♪ ♪ And man, it goes fast
And man, what a blur ♪ ♪ But I’d ride it the same
Oh, just as it were ♪ ♪ It’s that feeling in my stomach
When the light was low ♪ ♪ And I’d get warm in my chest
When my heart would slow ♪ ♪ And that feeling in my head
When the music played ♪ ♪ I get dizzy in my soul
From the glad song they sang ♪ ♪ What a dream to have ever
Felt the air so warm ♪ ♪ What a dream to have even
Ever been born ♪ ♪ And oh my God ♪ ♪ Oh my God ♪ ♪ I saw you coming
So I got to running ♪ ♪ But next time I’ll stay put ♪ ♪ (vocalizing) ♪
