"D.I.Y." as written by and Peter Gabriel....
Don't tell me what I will do, 'cause I won't
Don't tell me to believe in you, 'cause I don't
Be on your guard, better hostile and don't risk affection
Like flesh to the bone in the no-go zone
You're still waiting for the resurrection
Come up to me with your "What did you say?"
And I'll tell you straight in the eye

D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y.
Do it yourself

Everyone want to be what he not, what he not
Nobody happy with what he got, what he got
You function like a dummy with a new ventriloquist
Do you say nothing yourself?
Hanging like a thriller on the final twist
You know you're getting stuck on the shelf
Come up to me with your "What did you say?"
And I'll tell you straight in the eye

D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y.

When things get so big, I don't trust them at all
You want some control,you've got to keep it small

D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y. D.I.Y.
Do it yourself
