Happy Idiot

  • Stuck in the shade
    Where there's no sunshine
    I don't wanna play
    With them other kids in the sun

    Since you left me, babe
    It's been a long way down
    Yeah, you left me, babe
    It's been a long way down

    What you don't know won't hurt you, yeah
    Ignorance is bliss
    I'm a happy idiot
    Waving at cars
    I'm gonna bang my head to the wall
    'Till I feel like nothing at all
    I'm a happy idiot
    To keep my mind off you
    Stuck in a daze and I've lost my mind
    I don't wanna stay
    Where the blame's all mine

    Since you left me, babe
    It's been a long way down
    Yeah, you left me, babe
    It's been a long way down

    So, I shut it off
    So, I shut it all off
    So, I shut it off
    So, I shut it all off

    It's been a long way down
    It's been a long way down

    What you don't know won't hurt you, yeah
    Ignorance is bliss
    I'm a happy idiot
    Waving at cars
    I'm gonna bang my head to the wall
    'Till I feel like nothing at all
    I'm a happy idiot
    To keep my mind off you
    To keep my mind off you
    To keep my mind off you Writer/s: Daniel Ledinsky, Erik Hassle, Tunde Adebimpe, David Sitek, Kyp Malone, Jaleel Bunton
