  • Hey mom, there's something in the back room
    Hope it's not the creatures from above
    You used to read me stories
    As if my dreams were boring
    We all know conspiracies are dumb

    What if people knew that these were real?
    I'd leave my closet door open all night
    I know the CIA would say
    What you hear is all hearsay
    Wish someone would tell me what was right

    Up all night long
    And there's something very wrong
    And I know it must be late
    Been gone since yesterday
    I'm not like you guys
    I'm not like you

    I am still a skeptic, yes, you know me (yes you know me)
    Been best friends and will be till we die
    I got an injection of love from the erection
    My best friend thinks I'm just humping guys, alright

    Up all night long
    And there's something very wrong
    And I know it must be late
    Been gone since yesterday
    I'm not like you guys
    I'm not like you

    Dark and scary, ordinary
    Explanation, information
    Nice to know ya, paranoia
    Where's my mother, biofather

    Up all night long
    And there's something very wrong
    And I know it must be late
    Been gone since yesterday
    I'm not like you guys
    Twelve majestic lies

    Tom has sex with guys

    Hey Mark, who here thinks that I look very similar to Tom Cruise?
    Thank you, I think so too (yeah)
    Like, like Tom Cruise in that movie Born on the Fourth of July? That one?
    Where he's handicapped and retarded and stupid, nobody likes him
    And he just shits all over himself and he's a fuckin' asshole, hey
    That was mean (that's right)
    Never attack somebody that shits on himself
    Do you guys think it's weird, to shit your pants when you're sleeping?
    Not that I do it, but I did it last night and I haven't taken a shower since
    And I'm wondering if that's what smells, haha oh poopy, poopy caca haha
    Hey I wrote this next song, wanna hear it? 'Cause you don't have a choice
    It goes like this Writer/s: Mark Hoppus, Thomas DeLonge, Travis L. Barker

  • Daniel from Winchester, OhioTo this day I still don't believe this is real song.
  • John from Chester, VaOn the Mark, Tom, and Travis Show version of this track, Tom sings "I got an injection of blood from the erection, my best friend thinks I'm just humping guys" rather than "I got an injection of fear from the abduction, my best friend thinks I'm just telling lies."
  • Daniel from Winchester, OhI didn't think this was a real song at first, until I found this Songfact page on it..
  • Jake from Millerton, PaOn their live CD Mark says "Tom has sex with guys" after Tom says "Twelve majestic lies"
  • Jessica from Newport, PaI've listened to this song a million times, blink is my favorite band of all time. Thanks for the "twelve majestic lies" part, I've always wondered what that meant. Like, did he tell that many lies, or what? Thanks for clearing it up.
  • Tim from Utica, NyThis song is pretty kewl
  • Courtney from Attleboro, MaTom Believes in Aliens, so he wrote this kinda goofy song. :)
  • Evan from Philadelphia, PaBlink jokes about believing in unicorns, but like many, Tom Delonge believes in aliens. He's been to Area 51, and he talks about them in extent in the band's second documentary: The Urethra Chronicles II.
  • Nick from Kingston, AustraliaGuitarist Tom DeLonge wrote it
