are you such a dreamer
to put the world to rights
i'll stay home forever
where two and two always makes a five
i'll lay down the tracks
sandbag and hide
january has april showers
and two and two always makes a five
it's the devil's way now
there is no way out
you can scream and you can shout
it is too late now
because
you have not been
payin' attention
payin' attention
payin' attention
payin' attention
you have not been
payin’ attention
payin’ attention
payin’ attention
payin’ attention
you have not been
payin’ attention
payin’ attention
payin’ attention
payin’ attention
you have not been
payin’ attention
payin’ attention
payin’ attention
payin’ attention
soon oh
i try to sing along
but the music's all wrong
cos i’m not
cos i’m not
i’ll swallow up flies
with my fat detesting gun
and go bad
but i’m not
all hail to the thief
all hail to the thief
but i'm not
but i'm not
but i'm not
but i'm not
don't question my authority or put me in the box
cos i'm not
cos i'm not
oh go and tell the king that the sky is falling in
but it's not
but it's not
but it's not
maybe not
maybe not

 

Premiered at the Teatro Kursaal, San Sebastian, Spain on July 31, 2002.
