You say you’ll take me
I don’t want your pity
I won’t play bench warmer for thee

You say you like me
So where was the party?
That I wasn’t invited to

You say you love me
Ha! You’ll never fool me
You’ll never be my friend

Well, we started a war and I’ve got to break it to you
Well, we started a war and I’ve got to take it to you
He said, She said, the bombs are flying. Oh, the guns are crying.
He said, She said, the captain shouts, “Oh, lets take ‘em out.”
Come on

I was running along,
And I was writing my songs,
And there you were just a singing along

Now it’s hitting my light
Just to keep reading signs
Let’s just lose track of time till the planets collide

Here’s to the Soviet sun
Cause the Empire won
Now everyone says that Siberia’s fun

You say you’ve lost your footing
Well, I won’t be held down pouting
Only losers lose their home

You say you’ve lost your light again
I say, it’s time to pick a fight again
My life is Gods, I don’t care to die

You say you’ll leave me dreaming now
Well, babe, you’ve got me scheming now
And you never were my friend

So maybe you don’t feel anything
Your voice is cracked from all the cigarettes
And maybe you just don’t get it

So maybe I will tell your mother
That you don’t know me like your brother
Caress your bottle to sleep
