Crazy=Genius

Album: Death Of A Bachelor (2016)
  • You can set yourself on fire
    You can set yourself on fire

    She said at night in my dreams
    You dance on a tightrope of weird
    Oh but when I wake up you're so normal that you just disappear
    You're so straight like commuters with briefcases towing the line
    There's no residue of a torturer inside your of eyes

    She said you're just like Mike
    Love but you wanna be Brian Wilson, Brian Wilson
    Said you're just like Mike
    Love but you'll never be Brian Wilson

    And I said (hey ay, ay)
    If crazy equals genius (hey ay, ay)
    If crazy equals genius
    Then I'm a fucking arsonist (hey)
    I'm a rocket scientist (hey hey)
    (Hey ay, ay)
    If crazy equals genius (hey)
    You can set yourself on fire (hey ay)
    But you're never gonna burn, burn, burn (hey ay)
    You can set yourself on fire (hey ay)
    But you're never gonna learn, learn, learn hey!

    She said darlin' you know
    How the wine plays tricks on my tongue
    But you don't seem to change when you stuff all of
    your feelings with drugs
    Other boys you may have dated serrated your heart with a slice
    But the cut of your love never hurts baby, it's a sweet butter knife

    She said you're just like Mike
    Love but you wanna be Brian Wilson, Brian Wilson
    Said you're just like Mike
    Love but you'll never be Dennis Wilson

    And I said (hey ay, ay)
    If crazy equals genius (hey ay, ay)
    If crazy equals genius
    Then I'm a fucking arsonist (hey)
    I'm a rocket scientist (hey hey)
    (Hey ay, ay)
    If crazy equals genius (hey)
    You can set yourself on fire (hey ay)
    But you're never gonna burn, burn, burn (hey ay)
    You can set yourself on fire (hey ay)
    But you're never gonna learn, learn, learn hey!

    You can set yourself on fire (hey)
    You can set yourself on fire (hey)
    You can set yourself on fire (hey)
    You can set yourself on fire

    And I said (hey ay, ay)
    If crazy equals genius (hey ay, ay)
    If crazy equals genius
    Then I'm a fucking arsonist (hey)
    I'm a rocket scientist (hey hey)
    (Hey ay, ay)
    If crazy equals genius (hey)
    You can set yourself on fire (hey ay)
    But you're never gonna burn, burn, burn (hey ay)
    You can set yourself on fire (hey ay)
    But you're never gonna learn, learn, learn hey! Writer/s: Brendon Boyd Urie, Samuel S. Hollander, Jacob S. Sinclair
