Xing out the numbers puts me in a slumber

Cant call for help and nobodys at home.

Had a premonition, icy cold suspicion

Fueled by superstition and slick tricks bright lights.



It takes one million strips of paper fastened by one staple.

To take the upper hand they say youve got to have a plan.

Simple concentration, choked with hesitation,

Simple conversation, no I dont understand.



No, I dont understand how you got the upper hand on me.

I dont understand how you got the upper hand on me.



Xing out the number put me in a slumber

So hard to call for help when nobodys at home.

Had a premonition, icy cold suspicion

Fueled by superstition, stuck in repetition.



Youre calling me a liar, theres more smoke than fire.

More smoke than fire if youre calling me a liar.

On a million strips of paper, fastened by one staple.

In one word, shut it down, shut it down.



No, I dont understand how you got the upper hand on me.

I dont understand how you got the upper hand on me.



No, I dont understand how you got the upper hand on me.
