From the crawlspace under the floor
Turned away from your front door
I'm in your memories
I'm in your memories
Don't turn your back on me
I'm part of what you used to be
Don't turn your back on me
Don't turn your back on me

You fly along the stratosphere
Forget the people that brought you here
You fly along the stratosphere
Forget the people that brought you here

Shimmy, shimmy my way down underground
Got a lot to do
Got a lot to lose

Oooh, ah ah, oooohhh
I'll always treat you well
Ah, ahhh
But you won't accept the change

You fly along the stratosphere
Forget the people that brought you here
You fly along the stratosphere
Forget the people that brought you here

Shimmy, shimmy my way down underground
Got a lot to do
Got a lot to lose

I'll save your ass a thousand times
Put your body bag inside of mine
I'm back on top of a fucking cloud
The big bang is so goddamn loud
Run the play man, run the play
1969, 2012 today
Moon walking in my leather shoes
I don't have a fucking clue

    General CommentFirst of all, it's not Jon who sings this song, he is out of the band... it's Kurt now.

    But here is what I got...

    From the crawlspace under the floor.
    Turned away from your front door.
    I'm in your memories.
    I'm in your memories.
    Don't turn your back on me,
    I'm part of what you used to be.
    Don't turn your back on me.
    Don't turn your back on me.

    Your flying on the stratosphere,
    Forget the people that brought you here.
    Your flying on the stratosphere,
    Forget the people that brought you here.

    Shimmy Shimmy, why would you?
    Got a lot to do, got a lot to lose.
    Shimmy Shimmy, why would you?
    Got a lot to do, got a lot to lose.

    (I'll treat you well, but you wanted him to change)
    Ooooo ahhhh ahhh
    (I'll treat you well, but you wanted him to change)
    Ooooo ahhhh ahhh

    Your flying on the stratosphere,
    Forget the people that brought you here.
    Your flying on the stratosphere,
    Forget the people that brought you here.

    Shimmy Shimmy, why would you?
    Got a lot to do, got a lot to lose.
    Shimmy Shimmy, why would you?
    Got a lot to do, got a lot to lose.

    General CommentMikespunches, You epic fail. You did nice on the lyrics though. Jon recorded in the album. He just quit afterwards.

    General CommentMy bad to the last comment "You fly along* the stratosphere"

    And also the first part says "To the reef on your front door" and it also sounds like Jon says " Shimmy, Shimmy my way down underground"
