I'm making my escape, making my escape
I tell myself that everything's in shape
Everything's in shape, but me
How long can we stay, how long can we stay?
I tell myself that everything is great
Everything is great, well how am I doing?

I've got a great idea
I'm going to wait right here
I've got a great idea
I'm going to wait right here
While everything is adding
Up, up, up
Everything is adding
Up, up, up

Breaking both my hands, breaking both my hands
Telling me to 'take it like a man'
Take it like a man, I can't
I don't understand, I don't understand
Please repeat whatever you just said
Nothing's making sense, well how am I doing?

I've got a great idea
I'm going to wait right here
I've got a great idea
I'm going to wait right here
While everything is adding
Up, up, up
Everything is adding
Up, up, up

They're breaking both my hands, they're breaking both my hands
They're telling me to 'take it like a man'
Take it like a man, well **** that
I don't understand, said, I don't understand
So please repeat whatever you just said
'Cause nothing's making sense, well how am I doing?

I've got a great idea
I'm going to wait right here
I've got a great idea
I'm going to wait right here
While everything is adding
Up, up, up
While everything is adding
Up, up, up
