Lampshades on Fire
Mmm… Buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh-duh-dah
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-dah
We're all going
We're all going up

Well, the lampshades on fire and the lights go out
The room lit up and we ran about
Well, this is what I really call a party now
Packed up our cars, moved to the next town

Well, the lampshades on fire and the lights go out
This is what I really call a party now
Well, fear makes us really, really run around
This one's done so where to now?

Our eyes light up, we have no shame at all
Well, you all know what I'm talking' about
Shave off my eyebrows let 'em fall to the ground
So I can't look surprised right now

Pack up again, head to the next place
Where we'll make the same mistakes
Burn it up or just chop it down
Ah, this one's done so where to now?

Buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh-duh-dah
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-dah
We're all goin'
We're all goin'

Well, the lampshades on fire and the lights go out
This is what I really call a party now
Well, fear makes us really, really run around
Ah, this one's done so where to now?

Our eyes light up, we have no shame at all
Well, you all know what I'm talkin' about
The room lights up, but we're still dancing around
We're havin' fun, havin' some for now

Pack up again, head to the next place
Where we'll make the same mistakes
Open one up and let it fall to the ground
Pile out the door when it all runs out

Buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh, buh-duh-dah
Duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh-duh-dah
We're all going
We're all going up

We have spines and other bones
We'll eat your food, we'll throw some stones
Oh, this is how it's always gone
And this is how it's gonna go

Well, we're the human race
We're goin' to party out this place
And then move on
Tough luck

We'll kill you off and then make a clone
Yeah, we got spines and other bones
This is how it's always gone
And this is how it's gon' go

Our soft feelings are getting hurt
Oh, we want you to do the work
Our ass looks great inside these jeans
We want just our water clean

Oh, this is how it's always been
And this is how it's gon' be
So, you just move along

The air's on fire so we're moving on
Better find another one 'cause this one's done
Waitin' for the magic of the scientist glove
To push, push, push, push, pull us up

Spend some time floating out in space
Find another planet, make the same mistakes
Our minds all shatter when we climb aboard
Hoping for the scientist to find another door
