I’ll tell you something.
I’ve just been sleeping.
I’ll work for the weekend.
I’ll live to recreate.

And I’m so content to sit on the couch or lie in the chair.
Oh, how I’m happier
Now that I’m spent, the letters I’ve sent
My blankets are here.
I’m so much happier
Now that I’m free
Responsibility has got nothing on me.
Dance with me, dance with me.
I’m so content to sit on the couch or lie in the chair.
Backwards

Hollywood shunned me.
Aliens never rescued me.
Instead of obvious
I’ll be anonymous and free.

And the sooner the better.
Another year ends today.
If you listened forever,
You would have nothing to say.
And no time to say it
And no one left to replay.
Live this life of distraction.
Dance with me, dance with me.

All that could be maybe should be
Me pretending
To have never had these
Thoughts which have caused me such shame.



(lyrics: RoMak/music: Tleilax, Shechet, Tunnell)
