Somebody please come and rescue me
this sandpaper city has taken everything from me.
From my head down to my knees,
I'm begging for the grace of God.

Somebody please come and rescue me,
that stupid little fool has taken everyone from me.
I used to feel so entertained
but now my friends are all just birds
and they're flying away.

Carbon monoxide into my lungs,
searching this city, looking for love.
All that I found was this picture of you,
crumpled and torn up,
how perfectly fitting for you!

Oh, fuck you.
Nobody but you.

Somebody, anybody, anyone but me
I'll blame it all on the economy.
This concrete pillow and this empty sky
are singing me to sleep tonight, yeah.

Carbon monoxide into my lungs,
searching this city, looking for love.
All that I found was this picture of you,
crumpled and torn up.
I've never felt this good.

They said you must be deranged,
your situation needs to be rearranged.
It's not my fault I swear,
I try to kick and scream their hands away,
but no one will listen to me.
I'm nobody!
But you can be sure,
I'm not going down without a fight.
