LyricsEdit

Why am I so scared that the shadows on the wall from yesterday?
I turn and tell my dad I saw ghosts in the park wooing girls with cakes
And their moms are scared 'cause they haven't been home in two or three days
Wind blows trees through the tops of my hair, I saw wolves in the fog, I can see through the rain
Oh man and things have changed, in the snow filled lakes where there used to be waves
I feel deranged, they're building beaches inside so it's sunny all May
I don't know, I think it's strange, 'cause I know we met before but I cannot place it
I don't know if there's any real danger but the creatures all know that it's safer in the dark


Why am I so scared of explosions going off just any old way
I turn, ask is it that bad, they say we've much bigger problems, we got wolves on the plane
And they left their den 'cause of cracks in the pipes through the murky graves
They're running just as fast as the hares, they say you shouldn't leave a place if you can eat there
Oh man and things have changed in the snow filled lakes where there used to be waves
I feel deranged, they're building beaches inside so it's sunny on me
I don't know, I think it's strange, 'cause I know we met before but I cannot place it
I don't know if there's any real danger, but I'm alright if you're alright
I'm alright if you're alright, I'm alright if you're alright, man...


She cuts her diamonds so they look like a decoy lover
Many fine costumes but they're not like mine
He said "I'd kiss you, sometimes I don't wanna kiss you,
Don't mean I don't like to kiss you, just means these lips are mine"
He kept on jerking and he kept on working
He got wrapped up in lovin' but we opened him just in time
He said "Don't make your problems my funny problems
Because I've got problems but I'll cover them up in time
Don't make your troubles my funny troubles
Because I've got troubles, why you talk about 'em all the time?"
They break you down, sometimes I wanna eat him
Sometimes I just wanna meet him for a good meal
But to eat you better win so loud (they break you down)
And sometimes he just wanna basement
Sometimes, man, he can never take it when he
Do not look at you but deep inside it's fine


Thinking about torture,
Torture, don't let it get you down
There's other ways to fight torture
I hope it gets you 'round
Shaking it off with me


Man, now don't get too freaky on me!
