Take a listen around you
All the people that crowd around in your house
They've been wanting to kill you in your sleep

Take a listen around you
All the people that love to call their names
They've been wanting to kill you in their sleep

And all the games that people play
It does not matter what they say

So jump back, jump back
Do you want me? I don't believe that you need me

Come on, come on
Do you want me to stay?
Hey

And all the games that people play
It does not matter what they say

So jump back, jump back
Do you want me? I don't believe that you need me

Come on, come on
Do you want me to stay?
Yeah

Take a listen around you
All the people that crowd around in your house
That crowd around in your house
That crowd around in your house

    General CommentThis song was the first version of "Love Explosion". I kind of liked the whole "Do you want me to stay?" thing and wished they would have kept it although "Love Explosion" has better lyrics in general.

    General Commentthis killed 'love explosion' and like that one dude said it indeed had dark and creepy lyrics over a upbeat melody....that's what i love about weezer...no one really pays attention to some of the dark stuff said just because of the upbeat melodies...what a genius that cuomo is.
