Making my escape
Making my escape
Tell myself that everything's in shape
Everything's in shape
But me

How long can this take?
How long can this take?
Tell myself that everything is great
Everything is great

I've got a great idea
I'm gonna wait right here
I've got a great idea
I'm gonna wait right here
Everything is adding up, up, up
Everything is adding up, up, up

Breaking both my hands
Breaking both my hands
Tell me to take it like a man
Take it like a man
I can't

I don't understand
I don't understand
Please repeat what you just said
Nothing makes sense

I've got a great idea
I'm gonna wait right here
I've got a great idea
I'm gonna wait right here
Everything is adding up, up, up
Everything is adding up, up, up

Whoooooaaah!

Solo!

Da da da da da da da da da,
Da da da da da da da da da,
Da da da da da da da da da,
Da da da da da da da da da.

    My OpinionI love this cover... Just about as much as the original :)

    General CommentEddie's inability to sing has spoiled this cover.
    He should not have attempted it. We Are Scientists is a brilliant band with a clear, talented vocalist.
    Eddie just talks. It works for Art Brut, as their albums are more like conversation over some excellent music- the inclusiveness is its charm.
    But We Are Scientists is vocalist's music!
    I can't say I like this cover.
