"Am I Not Right?" as written by and Colin Meloy....
Welcome to my head, pull up a chair
Allow yourself some room
Let down your hair

I'll impose on you the history
Of a wrong life
Of a wrong life

Lazy lacking speed, applied the breaks
Learn to take to liquid between takes
Dropped the ball in London funding low

Am I not right? Am I not right?

And knowledge, what's to know?
And wisdom, what's to know?

From the first
To the last
I have a knack for setting fire
To the things I hold close.

Am I not right?
Oh, am I not right?

Lesson number one, don't trust a word
It's funny how the tritest things get heard
I did not intend this painful state

It's too late now. It's too late now.

And knowledge, what's to know?
And wisdom what's to know?

From the first to the last
I have a knack for setting fire
To the things I hold close

Am I not right?
Oh, am I not right?

And knowledge, what's to know?
And wisdom what's to know?

From the first to the last
I have a knack for setting fire
To the things I hold close

Am I not right?

From the feast to the fast
I have a knack for setting fires
To the things i hold close

Am I not right?
Oh, am I not right?
