Loopy says he likes it up on top
Yes, he knows if he ever lets go
The pretty machine
Will swallow him whole

He has no fear
He has no sense of shame
He will not stop
Until everybody everywhere
Wants to know his name

The one hit wonder, he likes the big time
He says he wants to live the kind of life
That will make the folks back home
All bitch and whine

He knows if he ever even gets the chance
He'd sell his soul
To make the monster dance
They can't hurt you unless you let them

Loopy says he sure
Does like the good life
Yes, he knows all those women who scheme
Are just pretty pictures in the pretty machine

He knows if he ever even gets to try
He will bite down hard to make the monster cry
He knows if he ever even gets the chance
He'd sell his soul to make the monster dance
They can't hurt you unless you let them

I will say it again
They cannot hurt you unless you let them

Loopy says, he likes it up on top
And he prays to God
And he hopes like hell
That the pretty machine, they will never fail

He has no fear
He doesn't really even have the time
He knows that the world is in love
With the pretty machine
Oh yeah, the pretty machine

The one hit wonder, he likes the big time
He wants to live the kind of life
That will make the folks back home
Scream, bitch and whine

He knows if he ever even gets to try
He will bite down hard to make the monster cry
He knows if he ever even gets the chance
He will sell his soul to make the monster dance
He knows if he ever even gets to play
He will stomp like God to make the monster say

They can't hurt you unless you let them
They can't hurt you unless you let them
They cannot hurt you unless you let them
They cannot hurt you unless you let them
They cannot hurt you unless you let them
They cannot hurt you unless you let them

I will say it again
They cannot hurt you unless you let them

I will say it again
They cannot hurt you unless you let them

I will say it again
They cannot hurt you unless you let them

They cannot hurt you unless you let them
They cannot hurt you unless you let them
They cannot hurt you unless you let them

Unless you let them
Unless you let them
Unless you let them
