Back to Doom and Gloom lyrics

Doom And Gloom

I had a dream last night I was piloting a plane
And all the passengers were drunk and insane
I crash landed in a Louisiana swamp
Shot up a horde of zombies but I come out on top

What's it all about?
Guess it just reflects my mood
Sitting in the dirt
Feeling kind of hurt

And all I hear is doom and gloom
And all is darkness in my room
And through the light your face I see
And baby take a chance, baby won't you dance with me

We lost all the treasure in an overseas war
It just goes to show you don't get what you paid for
Bowing to the rich and you worry about the poor
Put my feet up on the couch and lock all the doors

What's the funky noise?
It's the tightening of the screws
Sitting in the dirt
Feeling kind of hurt

All I hear is doom and gloom
But when those drums go boom boom boom
And through the night your face I see
And baby take a chance, baby won't you dance with me

Yeah, baby won't you dance with me
Ah yeah

I'm fracking deep for oil but there's nothing in the sump
There's kids all picking at the garbage dump
I'm running out of water so I better prime the pump
I'm trying to stay sober but I end up drunk

We'll be eating dirt
Living on the side of the road
There's some food for thought
Gonna make your head explode

Feeling kind of hurt
Yeah

But all I hear is doom and gloom
And all is darkness in my room
Through the night your face I see
Baby take a chance, won't you dance with me

Yeah, Come on.
Baby won't you dance with me

I'm feeling kind of hurt
Baby won't you dance with me

Oh yeah

Sitting in the dirt, baby won't you dance with me
