I never thought I’d feel so free; I can’t get used to how things used to be. Call up the mayor, tell the Priest, Look up the number of the Beast, Invite the ones you love the least To welcome me. Hallelujah! Break out the finger food Hallelujah! Shake off the attitude Hallelujah! Feels like we’re in the mood For a different sort of solitude. It seems I’ve caught you unprepared But I don’t understand why you’re so scared. Turn off the lights, pull down the blinds And pray that I will never find you, But, I know you know I know That you’re in there. Hallelujah! Break out the finger food Hallelujah! Shake off the attitude Hallelujah! Feels like we’re in the mood For a different sort of solitude. She’s kind of lonesome, been on her own some She’s been living by herself for a while; I’ve come to save her, do her a favour, And make her funeral my trial. Hallelujah! Break out the finger food Hallelujah! Shake off the attitude Hallelujah! Feels like we’re in the mood For a different sort of solitude.

Manchild 04:40
There's wisdom In every little thing you say And I'm wrong And getting wronger every day I'll be true You know I'll never break your heart I hear you Could you repeat the last part? Darling, you're talking to a man now. You're talking to a man now, child. Speak slowly, speak slowly Sweetheart, What do you think I do all day? I make Art When inspiration blows my way. Oh, the shouting? I'm getting kind of used to that But this doubting my intentions? Well honey, that just makes me sad. Darling, you're talking to a manchild Darling, you're talking to a manchild now Speak slowly, speak slowly You ask for conversation You ask for understanding But then you say you want a man. Look how hard I'm trying: I'll let you watch me crying. I'm just like you, but I'm a man. I know you You think I'm just a lazy jerk But I miss you Babe when you're away at work. And Genius Can strike a man at any time So I'm waiting Let's cut it with the heavy sighs. Darling, you're talking to a manchild Darling, you're talking to a manchild now Speak slowly, speak slowly
