Destroyer

.

Met a girl called Lola and I took her back to my place

Feelin' guilty, feelin' scared, hidden cameras everywhere

Stop! Hold on. Stay in control

.

Girl, I want you here with me

But I'm really not as cool as I'd like to be

'Cause there's a red, under my bed

And there's a little yellow man in my head

And there's a true blue inside of me

That keeps stoppin' me, touchin' ya, watchin' ya, lovin' ya

.

Paranoia, the destroyer.

Paranoia, the destroyer.

.

Well I fell asleep, then I woke feelin' kinda' queer

Lola looked at me and said, "ooh you look so weird."

She said, "man, there's really something wrong with you.

One day you're gonna' self-destruct.

You're up, you're down, I can't work you out

You get a good thing goin' then you blow yourself out."

.

Silly boy ya' self-destroyer. Silly boy ya' self-destroyer

.

Silly boy you got so much to live for

So much to aim for, so much to try for

You blowing it all with paranoia

You're so insecure you self-destroyer

.

(And it goes like this, here it goes)

Paranoia, the destroyer

(Here it goes again)

Paranoia, the destroyer

.

Dr. Dr. help me please, I know you'll understand

There's a time device inside of me, I'm a self-destructin' man

There's a red, under my bed

And there's a little green man in my head

And he said, "you're not goin' crazy, you're just a bit sad

'Cause there's a man in ya, knawin' ya, tearin' ya into two."

.

Silly boy ya' self-destroyer.

Paranoia, the destroyer

.

Self-destroyer, wreck your health

Destroy your friends, destroy yourself

The time device of self-destruction

Light the fuse and start eruptin'

.

(Yea, it goes like this, here it goes)

Paranoia, the destroyer

(Here's to paranoia)

Paranoia, the destroyer

(Hey hey, here it goes)

Paranoia, the destroyer

(And it goes like this)

.

Paranoia, the destroyer

(And it goes like this.)
