You used to cry, I used to cry, I used to cry
When I was a boy, when I was a boy, when I was a boy
Can't shut me up, can't shut me up, can't shut me up
Now I know why, now I know why, now I know why
Now you can't shock all my senses

Boy, stupid boy
Don't sit at the table until you're able to
Toy, broken toy
Shout and shout and you're inside out

If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
Alright

Red, running red
You play for real, talk and feel
A hole in your head
A shotgun shockblast through my side

If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.

Two, three, four

Despite all my rage
Despite all my rage
Despite all my rage
Despite all my rage
I'm still like a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage
I'm still like a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage
Despite all my rage
Despite all my rage
Despite all my rage
Despite all my rage

If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.

Despite all my rage
A rat in a cage
Despite all my rage
Like a rat in a cage
I can see for miles
I can see for miles
I can see for miles
And miles and miles and miles
I can see for miles
And miles and miles and miles
And miles and miles and miles
And miles and miles
Despite all my rage
A rat in a cage
