We expected something, something better than before

Behind a painting, lock it up and leave?
Behind a painting, lock it up and leave?

I?ll get money, I?ll get funny again
I?ll get money, I?ll get funny again

We expected something more
You were always weird but I never had to hold you
We were always weird but I never had to hold you
Walk away now and you're gonna start a war
Whatever went away, I?ll get it over now
Whatever went away, I?ll get it over now
Walk away now and you're gonna start a war
We expected something, something better than before

Behind a painting, lock it up and leave?
Behind a painting, lock it up and leave?

I?ll get money, I?ll get funny again
I?ll get money, I?ll get funny again

We expected something more
You were always weird but I never had to hold you
We were always weird but I never had to hold you
Walk away now and you're gonna start a war
Whatever went away, I?ll get it over now
Whatever went away, I?ll get it over now
Walk away now and you're gonna start a war
