Breaking the static, a life automatic.
Everyone mad about you.
Look like a dirty old bruise, face like a faded tattoo.

Life imitated, it's so inflated.
Tired of waiting on you.
What did you want me to do, sit here and dream about...

Oh no, oh no, oh no!

You know you're better off you bastard, bastard, bastard.
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You know i'm better off you bastard, bastard, bastard.
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah.

Now that you're sane and the picture you painted.
Don 't really look much like you.
Little more long in the tooth, what do you know about truth?
Is it there and it's just interfering, life isn't fair but i knew.
What if i'm haunted by you, everytime that i...

Oh no, oh no, oh no!

You know you're better off you bastard, bastard, bastard.
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You know we're better off you bastard, bastard, bastard.
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah.

You are my favorite disaster.
Finally time to clear the air.

Just don't forget to breathe.
Please don't forget to breathe.
Everyone's better off this way.

So take it away.
Take it away.
Take it away.

You know you're better off you bastard, bastard, bastard.
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You know we're better off you bastard, bastard, bastard.
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah.

Just don't forget to breathe.
Please don't forget to breathe.
Everyone's better off this way.

So take it away.
Take it away.
Take it away.

Go!

    My InterpretationThis could be about any kind of relationship. Love, friendship or even getting fired.
    I really like it, one of the better songs on the album imo.

    about the lyrics...
    "You are my favorite disaster."
    The relation was a disaster, but it was his/her favorite one.
    They didn't fit after all, so "You know we're better off".

    but what i really want to know:
    "What did you want me to do, sit here and dream about...
    Oh no, oh no, oh no!"
    "What if I'm haunted by you, every time that I...
    Oh no, oh no, oh no!"

    What could the lyrics be if it didn't turn to "Oh no"?
