  • Whoa-oh
    You got to pay your way in pain
    You got to pray your way in shame

    Ooh, I went to the store, I was feeling kinda hungry
    But, didn't have the money and the shelves were all empty
    So I went to the bank to ch-ch-check my checking
    The man looked at my face, said, "We don't have a record"

    Oh no, you thought we had forgotten
    The show is only getting started
    The road is feeling like a pothole
    Sit down, stand up, head down, hands up and

    Pay your way in pain
    You got to pray your way in shame

    Give me what I want
    (What do you want, what do you want?)
    You know what I want
    (What do you want, what do you want?)
    You know what I want
    (What do you want, what do you want?) You relax baby
    I, I, I wanna be loud

    (Pay)
    (Pain)
    (Pray, shame)

    So I went to the park just to watch the little children
    The mothers saw my heels and they said I wasn't welcome
    So I, I went back home, I was feeling kinda queasy
    But all the locks were changed, my baby wouldn't see me

    Oh no, you put your finger on it
    The stove is only gettin' hotter
    The sun is gotta, gotta melt you
    Stand up, sit down, hands up, break down

    (What do you want, what do you want?)
    You know what I want
    (What do you want, what do you want?)
    I wanna be loud (what do you want, what do you want? Shame)
    (What do you want, what do you want?)
    I wanna be loud (what do you want, what do you want? Shame)
