Charted: 31
  • Well I say what I mean
    I say what comes to mind
    I never get round to things
    I'm living a straight, straight line

    You know me--I'm acting dumb
    You know the scene--very humdrum
    Boredom--boredom--boredom

    Now I'm living in a movie
    Which doesn't move me
    I'm the one waiting for the phone to ring
    Ring-a-ring-a-fucking-ding

    You know me--I'm acting dumb
    You know the scene--very humdrum
    Boredom--boredom--boredom

    Now there's nothing behind me
    And I'm already a has-been
    My future ain't what it was
    I think I know the words that I mean

    You know me--I'm acting dumb
    You know the scene--very humdrum
    Boredom--boredom--be 'dumb, be 'dumb

    I've taken this extravagant journey
    So it seems to me
    To arrive from nowhere
    And to go straight back there

    You know me--I'm acting dumb
    You know the scene--very humdrum
    Boredom--boredom--boredom Writer/s: MATTHEW CHARLES FISHER
