  • I'm making my escape, making my escape
    I tell myself that everything's in shape
    Everything's in shape, but me
    How long can we stay, how long can we stay?
    I tell myself that everything is great
    Everything is great, well how am I doing?

    I've got a great idea
    I'm going to wait right here
    I've got a great idea
    I'm going to wait right here
    While everything is adding
    Up, up, up
    Everything is adding
    Up, up, up

    Breaking both my hands, breaking both my hands
    Telling me to 'take it like a man'
    Take it like a man, I can't
    I don't understand, I don't understand
    Please repeat whatever you just said
    Nothing's making sense, well how am I doing?

    I've got a great idea
    I'm going to wait right here
    I've got a great idea
    I'm going to wait right here
    While everything is adding
    Up, up, up
    Everything is adding
    Up, up, up

    They're breaking both my hands, they're breaking both my hands
    They're telling me to 'take it like a man'
    Take it like a man, well fuck that
    I don't understand, said, I don't understand
    So please repeat whatever you just said
    Cause nothing's making sense, well how am I doing?

    I've got a great idea
    I'm going to wait right here
    I've got a great idea
    I'm going to wait right here
    While everything is adding
    Up, up, up
    While everything is adding
    Up, up, up Writer/s: NICHOLAS SANDON MURRAY
