We expected something, something better than before
We expected something more

Do you really think you can just put it in a safe
Behind a painting, lock it up and leave?

Walk away now and youre gonna start a war

Whatever went away, Ill get it over now
Ill get money, Ill get funny again
Whatever went away, Ill get it over now
Ill get money, Ill get funny again
Walk away now and youre gonna start a war

We expected something, something better than before
We expected something more

You were always weird but I never had to hold you
By the edges, like I do now
We were always weird but I never had to hold you
By the edges, like I do now
Walk away now and youre gonna start a war

Whatever went away, Ill get it over now
Ill get money, Ill get funny again
Whatever went away, Ill get it over now
Ill get money, Ill get funny again
Walk away now and youre gonna start a war
Walk away now and youre gonna start a war
