Letra

There is no help coming once you’re outside of the circle
All that’s left after that is »Hey there genius, how you doing?»
I was half-way back to my house before the film was even done
Saying «Hey I made that mountain and now it’s swallowing me up»

[Verse 2] The results are in and it looks like everybody gets a big old slice of nothing
Everything was cool, I have no idea how it happened
How about you melt into the pavement and slip on down the drain?
Saying «You should’ve seen me man, I can almost taste the sale!»

[Pre-Chorus 1] No words, no sounds, no more A.M. dread
No more dead dogs, screw-ups
Hey that doesn’t sound so bad, does it?

[Chorus 1] I’m not gonna pay it back
Have you completely lost your mind?
What if I don’t wanna?
What if the money comes alive?
They take turns

[Verse 3] Doctor death appears as if from nowhere and says something dumb
Like «If this is the answer then what is the question?»
Then «Oh fantastic! Here come the secret police again»
«Would you buy a guitar off these men, would you pay good money for a dinner with LeBron James?»

[Verse 4] It’s a shame to break up your holiday like this
It seems kinda fishy to me, but the monorail is king
If you lived here you’d be home by now
If you lived here you’d be home by now
My weekend just slipped down the drain
I got all dressed up for nothing

[Pre-Chorus 2] No words, no sounds, no more A.M. dread
No more dead dogs, screw-ups
Hey that doesn’t sound so bad

[Chorus 2] I’m not gonna pay it back
Are you outside of your mind?
What if I don’t wanna?
What if the money comes alive?
They take turns

[Bridge] Why’d you take away my evening?
I got all dressed up
«Hey there genius, how you been feeling?»
We were half-way home before they realised what we’d done

Why’d you take away my evening?
I got all dressed up
«Hey there genius, how you been sleeping?»
Yeah I made that mountain and now it’s swallowing me up

[Chorus 3] I’m not gonna pay it back
Are you outside of your mind?
What if I don’t wanna?
What if i don’t wanna?

It wasn’t my idea
Not sure who said it first
Go ahead, I dare ya!
You’re not fit to wear the shirt

[Outro] I got all dressed up for nothing!
I got all dressed up for nothing!
I got all dressed up for nothing!
I got all dressed up for nothing!
