"Lead Balloon" as written by and Liam Finn....
Its a sad day when it comes to this
But a free man is a happier man
Walk home and reminisce
You were the highlight of the party
Wow wow wow wow
My head feels like a lead balloon
I've got little to no memory
I blame myself and so do you in the wee hours of the morning

Stuck in traffic
Lost in Memories
Of when we were naked and in love
Take no prisoners
Leave no traces
One day we'll be laughing loudly
Aah

Mad man with a nervous twitch you'll find love in a cemetery
Young girl enormous soul with a heart full of her family
Stumbled on something gold using IQ as a metaphor
Dab hand at a million things
But you know what you're good for

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
I know what I'm looking for
I know what I'm looking for

    Here's the real lyrics:

    Its a sad day when it comes to this
    but a free man is a happier man
    walk home and reminisce
    you were the highlight of the party
    my head feels like a lead balloon
    I've got little to no memory
    I blame myself and so do you
    in the wee hours of the morning

    Stuck in traffic
    Lost in memories
    of when we were naked in love
    take no prisoners
    leave no traces
    one day we'll be laughing loudly

    mad man with a nervous twitch
    you'll find love in a cemetery
    young girl enormous soul with a
    heart full of her family
    stumbled on something gold
    is it IQ is a metaphor
    dab hand at a million things
    but you know what you're good for
