I'm terrified of aliens and scientists who come by night
To find me, helpless, and cut me open
And sift through my insides to find a reason
Why humans tend to fall in love

I came along five years later, I should have known
And gone to find her way back in high school
Strategically timing my first impression
'Cause the last time I wasn't first enough

So I'll make a rocket that goes the speed of light
And drive in circles to travel back in time
And try harder

If beauty lies in the eye of her boyfriend
Then I'm the one watching, watching
As she cuts me open, removing my insides
To leave me useless when the scientists and aliens arrive

But in the end, she's happy with who she's with
And in the end, there were never any aliens
And I'm afraid it was me doing the cutting all along
And all along, I was planning my invention

To make a rocket
