The Adults Are Talking

Album: The New Abnormal (2020)
  • They've been sayin', "You're sophisticated"
    They're complainin', overeducated
    You are saying all the words I'm dreaming
    Say it after me
    Say it after me
    They will blame us, crucify and shame us
    We can't help it if we are a problem
    We are tryin' hard to get your attention
    I'm climbin' up your wall
    Climbin' up your wall

    Don't go there 'cause you'll never return
    I know you think of me when you think of her
    But then it don't make sense when you're tryin' hard
    To do the right thing but without recompense
    And then you did something wrong and you said it was great
    And now you don't know how you could ever complain
    Because you're all confused 'cause you want me to
    But then you want me to do it the same as you

    You were waitin' for the elevator
    You were sayin' all the words I'm dreaming
    No more askin' questions or excuses
    Information's here
    Here and everywhere

    Don't go there 'cause you'll never return
    I know you think of me when you think of her
    But then it don't make sense when you're tryin' hard
    To do the right thing but without recompense
    And then you did something wrong and you said it was great
    And now you don't know how you could ever complain
    Because you're all confused 'cause you want me to
    But then you want me to do it the same way as you, and, but

    I don't, I don't want anything
    I know it's not, it's not your fault
    I don't want anyone
    Always I do, it's not for you

    Ah
    Ooh

    Stockholders
    Same shit, a different lie
    I'll get it right sometime
    Oh, maybe not tonight
    Oh, maybe not tonight
    Oh, maybe not tonight
    Oh, maybe not tonight
    Oh, maybe not tonight

    Hello?
    Yeah, boy, here we go
    And a-one, and a-two, and a-three
    Here we go, friends
    Hold on, I can't-
    Maybe that's kooky situation
    So, let's go back to the old key, old tempo, everything
