Are you such a dreamer
To put the world to rights
I'll stay home forever
Where two and two always makes a five

I'll lay down the tracks
Sandbag and hide
January has April showers
And two and two always makes a five

It's the devil's way now
There is no way out
You can scream and you can shout
It is too late now

Because you're not there
Payin' attention
Payin' attention
Payin' attention
Payin' attention

Yeah I feel it, I needed attention
Payin' attention
Payin' attention
Payin' attention

Yeah I need it, I needed attention
I needed attention
I needed attention
I needed attention

Yeah I love it, the attention
Payin' attention
Payin' attention
Payin' attention
Soon oh

I try to sing along
But the music's all wrong
'Cause I'm not
'Cause I'm not

I'll swallow up flies?
Back and hide
But I'm not

Oh hail to the thief
Oh hail to the thief
But I'm not
But I'm not
But I'm not
But I'm not

Don't question my authority or put me in the box
'Cause I'm not
'Cause I'm not

Oh go up to the king, and the sky is falling in
But it's not
But it's not
Maybe not
Maybe not
