  • Take your payroll
    And your lottery
    There's a place I know
    There's a robbery

    And I swear I'll never tell
    If you swear you'll never tell
    And we'll all make out so well
    We will all make out so well

    Head on with my hate
    Into the lights ahead
    I'm amazed that I'm still standing
    And I demand that we all blend in
    I'm amounted

    Just the same old
    Glitter story
    From the sea floor
    Metamorphosis
    And I can't change back for you
    I will not change back for you
    I must live in skin that's new
    I'm a livid skin that's new

    Head on with my hate
    Into the lights ahead
    I'm amazed that I'm still standing
    And I demand that we all blend in
    I'm amounted

    Turn your insides out to the outside
    Turn the outside in to the inside
    Trade your outside in for the inside
    Turn it around again
    Turn your insides out to the outside
    Turn the outside in to the inside
    Trade your outside in for the inside
    Turn it around again

    I'm amounted

    And I can't change back for you
    No I can't change back for you Writer/s: DAVE GROHL, NATE MENDEL, TAYLOR HAWKINS
