Hey professor I’ve got questions to ask,
I’ve got no time to be sitting and waiting
for an answer that’s relating
to the problem at hand
that I have laid out on the table.
So bear with me our chemistry is dissipating under the gun.

Put me under the microscope
and watch me like a movie.
This wasn’t in the lesson plan.
This wasn’t how its meant to be.

Whoa. Oh, professor so.
Oh, do you believe
that the people in the city see the forest for the trees?

This was what I’m looking for;
I’m up in the middle of the night screaming,
“Help me, Help me get out of this-
Help me, Help me from under the gun!”

This was what I’m looking for,
I’m up in the middle of the night screaming,
“Help me, Help me get out of this,
I’m still stuck under the gun!”

Hey, Professor, you’ve got lessons to learn
and I have got to tell you that I’m just
a little concerned.

Pay attention and I’ll mention
at this awkward situation,
that’s being driven by the tension
and is pushing me back under the gun.

Whoa. Oh, professor so.
Oh, do you believe
that the people in the city want the glory or the green?

This was what I’m looking for;
I’m up in the middle of the night screaming,
“Help me, Help me get out of this-
Help me, Help me from under the gun!”

This was what I’m looking for,
I’m up in the middle of the night screaming,
“Help me, Help me get out of this,
I’m still stuck under the gun!”


So let us play this game of love
that is depending on
self-inflicting ignorance
and all these cliché characters.

This was what I’m looking for
I’m up in the middle of the night screaming,
“Help me, Help me get out of this,
I’m still stuck...”

This was what I’m looking for;
I’m up in the middle of the night screaming,
“Help me, Help me get out of this-
Help me, Help me from under the gun!”

This was what I’m looking for,
I’m up in the middle of the night screaming,
“Help me, Help me get out of this,
I’m still stuck under the gun!”
