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

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

Red, running red
Play for real, talk and feel
A hole in your head
You won't shout, you're spoon fed

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

Two, three, four
I can't stop
Useless is the castle wall
Useless is the metal wall
He's gonna jump

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

Till someone leaves him below
He's searched high and low
A tap on the wrist and he'd know
Somebody hear him
Just leave him
I can't find my way home
I'm alone
I've lost my way home
You know and you know
And you know and you know
And you know
